Tapping Passion and Reflection for Learning- The Vlogger

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Video blogging is a refreshing way to transform more traditional assessments such as essays into creative, student-driven presentations of knowledge. This presentation will offer tips, tools, and examples, including a variety of styles such as Common Craft, RSA animate,documentary, stop-motion, screen capture, and the ubiquitous "talking head". You will find that when students vlog they are generally more passionate about demonstrating and reflecting on their learning, and even the more timid individuals can often gain confidence, allowing for a different perspective on their progress. Get started with participating in the VoxBoxED21 Project Amy developed with fellow teacher Casey Agena - join in a global community of “confession box” vloggers using simple tools such as custom niches, iPads, and velcro.
