STEMbite: Transforming Video Lessons with Google Glass

STEMbite: Transforming Video Lessons with Google Glass | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

Two months ago, I received Google Glass. No, I don’t work for Google, and I’m not a software developer. I am an online science teacher, one of the only teachers in the world to have the highly coveted device. Naturally, I figured I should do something useful with it. So I started STEMbite, a series of video lessons on math and science that I film through Google Glass"

Google Glass has recieved a great deal of negative press in recent months, and much of it from the education sector.  Andrew Vanden Heuvel flips that coin to show the other side, using Google Glass to create some very interesting and enlightening  first-person video clips relating to Science and Maths topics. Examples include  Seed Dispersal and the Physics of Mirrors.You can find these and more on STEMbite's  YouTube Channel


Perthaps this technique will establish itself as another 'important' video style alongside thiose developed by RSA and  CommonCraft.  I think this does extend the potential for the educational user generated video and may inspire lots of innovative approaches. What do others think?

STEMbite looks like a very promising resource.

Könnten selbstgedrehte Unterrichtsfilmchen eine nützliche Anwendung für Googles umstrittene Datenbrille sein? Erste experimentelle Beispiele sind in diesem Beitrag beschrieben.

Ob dafür wirklich Google Glass benötigt wird?

I WILL be taking this.  Sounds like a great idea.  I'm convinced that a lot of the stuff the 'gurus' put in their courses (the ones they charge for) is freely available somewhere.  In the case of YouTube, I know for a fact that they publish a LOT of good stuff that's totally free....e.g. the YouTube Creators Playbook (that I found over a year ago).

 

I am also convinced that understand just this one simple, well-known tool of YouTube is (all by itself) a highly marketable skill.  I'll bet if you walked into 10 businesses and just said, "Hi, my name is Art Williams.  I'm a YouTube consultant.  Are you doing anything with YouTube to build your business?" it would lead to several people expressing interest.

 

I think the key to making that kind of prospecting work would be to have several different 'products' or services available.  Some people will need to be nurtured for a bit before they finally give you some real business....kinda like going into a Denny's and ordering an iced-tea first and then deciding that you really are hungry.

Youtube adds slow-motion feature.

When you upload the video on Youtube, you can just push the "Turtle" button to make it slow-motion. Also you can adjust the speed. Slow-motion is simple but effective feature. Now we can easily use it on Youtube. Thanks for Youtube!

Slow-Motion video features by YouTube offers extreme impact.

YouTube: Easily create video intros and outros | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

If you use YouTube playlists, to organise and manage videos, you may wish to try out a new feature which will enable you to add intros and outros to  the videos in the playlist to " weave individual videos together into a bigger story"

 

You can create these either as recorded 'to camera' pieces using your built in webcam or as text intros, there are a number of different styles and background effects to choose from. There is also an option to add background music.

 

The tool can be found in your Playlist settings in the Video Manager, click: Edit Playlist to use.

 

If students are creating playlist this facility might help them to think crtically about the content and sequences in a playlist.
