Beginner’s Guide To: Producing Their First Youtube Tutorial

Beginner’s Guide To: Producing Their First Youtube Tutorial | Coach Jeffery's: Teaching with Technology | Scoop.it

This post provides a tutorial that will show readers how to produce high quality YouTube tutorial without the use of a studio or even a video camera.

 

Users will mak a How-to video tutorial, or product introduction with voice over and subtitles.

 

YouTube has a function to translate the captions so that viewers from all over the world can understand what is in the video.

 

Subtitles also make YouTube tutorials text searchable so people can find them easily. It’s best to keep the length of the video in under 6 minutes – people don’t like to watch a video if it is too long.

Gamification is an important method for making the learning of important but abstruse topics simple and interesting. Teachers often resort to gamification albeit unknowingly. Take for example the instance where the teacheri calls out to the student and asks him to demonstrate the concept on the green board. One could also consider the Mock Parliaments, and the Mock United Nations that take place in our schools; aren't they part of gamification?

AudioPal, a free service, offers three way to create short audio messages to embed in any web presence.
Users can...
   - record using the microphone connected to their computer;
   - record by calling AudioPal's phone system; or
   - create a message by using AudioPal's text-to-speech function.
AudioPal has many potential uses within education but does require users enter an email address in order to access the embed code and sharing links.

If learners don't have email accounts, practitioners could set-up a classroom Gmail account that all learners enter.

All of the AudioPal messages that their learners create would then go to that one email account that they manage.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 20, 5:25 PM

We often hear of growth mindset and fixed mindset. Is there also a creative mindset? Jackie Gerstein suggests that there is a creative mindset in this post. Why? If a mindset is defined as "ideas and attitudes with which a person approaches a situation"  there is a list of "ideas and attitudes" that may be part of a creative mindset. The visual above provides Gerstein's list of some items she considers important for a creative mindset. The list is also below.

* Believes in one's own creativity

* Embraces curiosity

* Suspends judgement - silences the inner critic

* Tolerates ambiguity

* Persists even when confronted with skepticism and rejection

* Taps into childlike imagination; a child's sense of wonder

Each of these is described in more detail and links to additional resources are provided. There is also a short discussion conditions necessary to facilitate creative mindset in a classroom.
