6 Second Learning with Vine: 22+ Ideas & Resources

6 Second Learning with Vine: 22+ Ideas & Resources | Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) | Scoop.it

"Most of our students love learning and creating...I was excited to discover the creativity and imagination taking place on Vine, a social network with over 40 million people creating and sharing 6 second videos. We can use this popular free mobile app and social network to engage our students and get them to connect with our subject matter. "

What could your students create in 6 seconds with Vine? More than you might think. This post by Shelly Terrell shares over 22 ideas to help get your students creating Vines as well as information that is key to being successful. One example...did you know that students must be over 17 to have a Vine account? This means that most teachers would have to create a classroom account (and probably check your Acceptable Use Policy and get parents permission). The good news is that you can create an account that would only allow parents and students from your classroom to view the Vines.

Many additional resources are shared within the post including a recorded webinar by Turrell and also download her slides.

For all you Vine aficionados. Lessons using 6 second videos.

TWCLibrary's curator insight, May 26, 2014 6:57 PM

Great way to get students engaged in learning.  Creating something meaningful in 6 seconds takes a lot of thought!

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 17, 2014 5:35 AM

Have you seen an RSA Animate video? Are you interested in learning how to make one or better yet, have your students make one? This post provides an in-depth look at how to go about have your students create an animated video that provides them with the opportunity to  practice 21st century skills (quoted from post below):

* collaborate with one another

* synthesize ideas

* create content

* communicate ideas clearly

* use technology

This activity is designed to have your students create content, providing you with materials to use in future classes as well as helping your current students understand the materiial.

The author, Jordan Collier, provides a detailed five-day plan. Day 1 would have you dividing students into groups of three, assign them a section of a chapter in a textbook, and determine the key facts that need to be taught. To read about how to assist them with this and the tasks for Day 2 - 5 click through to the post.

The super team of Barbara Alonso and Peggy Lemaux have developed another set of materials for engaging children with science. This one is about diseases and pathogens of plants and animals. By contacting the authors you can download a link to a complete set of materials for teachers and children. It's designed for afterschool groups, but you could bring the materials into any classroom, or maybe even use as a birthday party activity for future scientists!
