Creating Video in the Classroom

As more and more devices enter into our classrooms, teachers are presented with an opportunity to expand the way students are able to demonstrate their learning. Traditionally, teachers opt for written work or have students stand in the front of the room to present on a topic. Now, with all of the technology currently available to students, alternate ways of presenting knowledge are readily available. Video creation and screencasting can be powerful alternatives to traditional ways students demonstrate their thinking and understanding in the classroom. In this workshop, participants will be presented with the benefits of student-created videos, the steps to take when implementing a short video project with students, and the tools for creating those amazing videos using mobile devices, Chromebooks, and laptops. Participants should bring a Chromebook or laptop to the workshop.
