Integrating Educational Video into the Curriculum How to Use Video to Flip, Differentiate, Assess and Enhance Teaching and Learning in Your Classrooms

In this course you will learn how to locate quality video resources, have a better understanding of the flipped classroom model, as well as how to use video to assess understanding. Participants will reshape an existing lesson, or build a new one, to include these tools to enhance your teaching and/or your students’ learning.  Activities include readings and/or videos, with periods for discussion and reflection. Using Backwards Design theory and a Constructivist approach, you will design an assessment that supports the curriculum frameworks/standards. 

Module 1: Learn how to use YouTube for Education, TeacherTube and other video resources in your teaching. You will read articles, watch videos and check out a variety of resources in this module.  

Module 2: In addition to learning about the ‘flipped classroom’ model and pedagogy, you will also learn how to create your own videos with a few web based screen casting tools. 

Module 3: Learn about backchanneling in your classroom and experience tools like Playposit, EdPuzzle and Zaption that allow you to take existing video and insert questions to prompts along the way. 

Module 4: Learn ways that students can create their own video(s) to demonstrate understanding using the same (or similar) screen casting tools you experienced in Session 2.  A few new tools are added here that are suited to students.
