Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Video Projects to Try With Your Students

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Video Projects to Try With Your Students | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Video creation projects are some of my favorite things to do with students. I like video projects for a number of reasons not the least of which is that students generally enjoy them too. I like video projects because when they're organized properly students have to write, research, produce, and revise just as they would if they were writing a story or research paper. The difference is that shared finished video projects have the potential to reach many more people than a well-written essay does. Another bonus is that I can invite my administrators into my classroom to watch a few short videos and they can quickly see what my students have been doing.

10 TED Talks Every Team Should Watch | OnlineMBA | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"While individual achievement can be great, sometimes it takes some serious teamwork to get things done, from winning a game to completing a client project on time. Unfortunately, working in a team comes with its own host of challenges, as sometimes egos clash and not everyone is on the same page when it comes to work ethic. No matter what your personal challenges are, it’s important to remind yourself why working in a team can be the best way to go and also to learn some new ways you can improve the group dynamic and get more out of your team effort. These TED talks offer a little bit of both, exploring the power of collaboration and offering tips and tools for better communication, productivity, and more."
