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.
“Teachers who use instructional video report that their students retain more information, understand concepts more rapidly and are more enthusiastic about what they are learning. With video as one component in a thoughtful lesson plan, students often make new connections between curriculum topics, and discover links between these topics and the world outside the classroom.” Read more

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 and EdPuzzle 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.
(Graduate credit participants)
Your final project will be a lesson that incorporates video into a unit of study. This can be a teacher created video that delivers content or a student created video that demonstrates understanding.
