I’m very excited about the chance to apply this knowledge, not only with my peers in my district at a professional development coming up but also with my students.
The professional development will be a one hour training from 8 to 9 where I can do a quick “show and tell” with other career and technology teachers in my district, sharing with them the research on this site as well as how to use the different software. I’m hoping that I’ll even convince a few of them to create videos of their own and share them with me to put on this site.
I’m more excited about the opportunity I have to share this with my students. I’ll add some research on the “Bibliography” page to support the use of video in class and I’ll share videos the students made. I may even attempt to do a “growth chart” with a student or two, showing where they started and the issues they had and showing you their final project at the end of the semester. For me, this is a really exciting prospect, sharing this with my students and with you! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. I’ll also blog my experiences, sharing this with my 8th grade students!
