Thanks to mobile phones and a constantly improving cloud infrastructure it is easier than ever to create a video. There are many ways that we can use video in our schools today. A principal might post videos to a YouTube channel to share daily or weekly announcements. A teacher can use video to create and share flipped video lessons. Students can use videos to explain their understanding of concepts. Or they might make videos to animate stories they’ve written. For examples of how teachers and students use videos, take a look at the library of videos on Next Vista for Learning.
Before you make your next video to show to students. And before they make their next videos, consider the following five tips explained in my video 5 Simple Things That Can Improve Your Videos.
