The Strength of Simple Videos

The Strength of Simple Videos | Train the trainer | Scoop.it

"Over the last month I've facilitated a handful of workshops on the topic of video creation in the classroom. One of the points that I always try to stress in those workshops is that the focus of most student video projects should be on developing and delivering clear story lines. Yes, it is great if students use slick transitions and special effects, but those don't mean a thing if the video doesn't have a clear purpose (unless that purpose is to demonstrate editing skills)."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 30, 2014 8:17 AM

How can we keep our students engaged and provide them with opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of content? Allow them to create a video!

Richard Byrne's post discusses this option and provides many resources to assist you. He also discusses this as a classroom teacher whom is not teaching video production.

One link will take you to a page Video Projects. This page provides resources that will help you learn:

* Designing and Developing Video Projects which discusses 5 video projects that you might choose to implement.

* Today's Activities which provides a variety of options as to how you might introduce this to your class. He also provides a list of questions to help you plan the project. The sections provided are:

* Planning the Student Video Project

* Assesing the Student Video Project: Pre-Production

* Asessing the Student Video Project: Post-Production

You will then find resources in the following areas (with each one briefly descibed):

* Free Video Creation Tools

* Sound and Music Sources

* Image Sources

* Sharing Videos

The original post also includes two sample videos. One is embedded within the post: Black Death in 90 Seconds, created by a teacher. There is a link to one created by a student, My Name is Michael, whom "explains what life is like living with Autism."

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers | Train the trainer | Scoop.it

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 17, 2013 10:50 PM

What if instead of giving homework to our students we asked them to come up with ideas? This chart provides a variety of alternative ways to look at homework. The post describes this as "Rather than simply a list of alternatives to homework, it instead contextualizes the need for work at home (or, “homework”). It does this by taking typical classroom situations–the introduction of new material, demonstrating a procedure, etc.), and offering alternatives to traditional homework assignments."

Consider asking your students what they would suggest doing instead of homework. What might you be able to add to these suggestions?

 

Nancy Jones's curator insight, June 19, 2013 9:40 AM

Love this! 21st century learning isn't as much about technology as it is thinking .allowing choices and options like this not only allow students choices but the opportunity for deeper thinking.

Laura Jane's curator insight, December 16, 2013 12:17 AM

I stole this from Jamie, and couldn't agree more! What a great [and practical] resource to have as we go into the final semester of our internships. This chart is chock full of ideas for creating more authentic and less monotonous homework for students. It focuses on reinforcing, and not memorizing. 

 

These strategies could work for all grade levels, to different extents. This again addresses the quality vs quantity debate. One of my favorite examples is to reinforce a skill that has been taught. It suggests that, instead of asking students to solve 10 word probelms to prove that they know a skill, to have them work in groups to solve, model, and present one deeper thinking word probelm.

 

This allows students to work in harmony to formulate their ideas, and is a more productive approach to learning. Although some cognitive struggle is good, too much leads to frustration and defeat. Allowing students to work together helps them to actively participate in student-centered learning, and they can better understand what they've learned. I will definitely be printing this chart to put in my lesson planning binder.

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching | Train the trainer | Scoop.it
Technology in education gets plenty of hype, but let's not forget the importance of teaching and learning, says Pamela Wright

 

So where do I stand as an educator, as a leader in education? The centre point of my passion is a philosophy that I instil into my staff, into the school and into every school I support. It is the child – first and foremost.

 

Teachers don't simply teach concepts and skills. Any new technology can do that.

 

Good teachers inspire our young people to be lifelong learners, creating a culture of independent enquiry with their enthusiasm and passion. I know this because I see it every day. Good teachers have the skills to know exactly how to get the best out of each and every young person in their care.

Wikis Let Students Actively Contribute to Their Learning

Wikis Let Students Actively Contribute to Their Learning | Train the trainer | Scoop.it

Have you considered using a wiki in your classroom to help students actively contribute to their learning? In this article Jason Bedell discusses his experiences using wikis with classes from Grade 4 though high school seniors and provides a variety of reasons. "The technology relies on the ideas of social constructivism that suggest that students consistently learn from one another, hone their own understanding, and actively create new knowledge in a discussion format, instead of passively receiving it in a typical lecture format..."

He provides a video that show how to set up and use a wiki using Wikispaces, and discusses how wikis promote collaboration and help make connections (and they are great for sharing professional knowledge). If you would like to use wikis this year with your class this article will assist you.
