Encourage your students to be documentarians of their learning. Capture video of science labs, art projects, poetry clips, proper phy-ed techniques, paper note sheets, or even main ideas in a lecture. All of those digital artifacts sitting on camera rolls can then become content for students to mix and remix into classroom rewinds. YouTube is famous for their year-end YouTube Rewind and you can take a page out of their book by having your students recap and reflect on their learning (minus the high production value) at the end of a unit or lesson. Take all those learning experiences and synthesize them into one classroom rewind.
*Teach your kids about the rule of thirds when filming.
*Set privacy to unlisted to allow for easy sharing.
*You can skip posting to YouTube by exporting finished videos directly to the camera roll (this can be a little tricky).
*Another piece of advice...give up the Oscar...it does not have to be perfect.
*Turn down the volume on the music so it does not overpower the audio in the video clip.
*Have students submit video links to a Google Form so they can watch other video and review from each other’s videos.
