  45. @ronhoutman Ha ha... You have a BIG job w so many Ts needing... ther- no, I mean technology! (-; #miched
  46. Hoping to learn a lot from #MichEd Team tonight as my experience with videos in the classroom is limited! #GrowthMindset
  47. #miched A1 Most of mine are class projects since I do K-3 resource but I feel that video projects involve higher order thinking skills
  48. A1: Super bonus points for @techsavvyed's use of Vine for #miched chat questions. Very creative
  49. A1: I use video projects for assessment. Works especially well for my theater arts class. #miched
  50. A1 ss who can't/won't express all of their learning in written form due to a variety of reasons. Video allows them to do so #miched
  51. A1: Video creation is, to me, just another means of exploring literacy #miched
  52. A1: Ss make PSA during our Drug unit in Forensic Science, in Gen Chem we are making Chemical Rxn demos. Showing what they know. #MichEd
  53. @dothinkeducate So excited to having you checking into #miched Love visitors from all over!
  54. A1: Different way of communication through expression. Especially in Soc Studies sometimes you need to feel the emotion during hst. #miched
  55. A1 - video projects often means higher level thinking, I'm a fan of students controlling a process video can allow this #miched
  56. A1: 5 yrs ago, did a 2-wk internship w/ local business. They couldn't believe how little we were doing w/ digital media. #realworld #miched
  57. A1: In my own role, screencasts have proven invaluable to T's and parents #miched
  58. A1: Video creation let Ss be an integral part of their own leaning. #miched
  59. A1: Use video for lessons when I need to be out of the classroom. #miched
  60. In case you haven't registered, you will want to attend NovaNow  http://novanowgr.org  #miched
  61. A1: Working w/ Ss this week who need extension activities for math standard. Video pushes them to deeper understanding and it's fun #miched
  62. @chip122772 Tell us more, Chip. What is the assignment? #michED I, too, teach theatre and use video some, but am ready for more.
  63. A1: I've used them for student-created PSA's, book trailers, skits, even student-led lessons-All are centered on a learning goal #miched
  64. A1: Video is part of Ss culture and daily lives-makes learning relevant and fun. #miched
  65. A1: I use videos for a number of reasons, but the main reason is to give another method of sharing Ss work. It's another voice. #michED
  66. A1: One that I use is digital video as a reflection tool to support students’ reflection on their own learning. #miched
  67. A1: For my first graders we have used videos to record each other's thinking and share new learning about a fav. book or activity #miched
  68. A1: Just like anything else, give Ss ownership and the ability to be creative. #miched
  69. A1: Video projects offer built in College & Career Readiness Skills practice; group work, clear communication, focus on audience #michED
  70. A1 another medium for students to create and explore and present material #michED
  71. Hi! I am Angela Breneman from Albion. I teach 3rd-5th grade special ed. #miched
  72. A1)video proj. for part of final tech projects demonstrate how to do a task. Upload something- change settings I show example videos #michED
  73. A1: Video is like a culminating activity. A way to compose the essence of the thought... & pack it with f-t-f hook. #miched
  74. A1: it also gives those less capable writers a chance to showcase their knowledge and understanding. Visual is powerful. #michED
  75. A1: I love screen casting for staff members. Sometimes it is just easier than an email:) #miched
  76. @ErinMastin It is amazing how shy HS Ss get when they have to do a edu vid rather than a snapchat one. #miched
  77. A1: Most often used by our elementary students to demonstrate understanding of concept. #miched
  78. @JR_evans Thanks for heading north to #miched Always love outside guests! :)
  79. Coming in from Holland, MI Anne Thorp #miched Hope you are all warm and cozy!
  80. A1: Video can be a better way to reach an authentic audience #miched
  81. @ErinMastin Completely agree! Let's them share without the stress of spelling or writing correctly! #MichEd
  82. A1: I used a video option to differentiate. Ss took notice of an awkward kid with a great project #miched
  83. @jrommel You bet! I have had Ss create digital personal narratives instead of a 10th paper one. #miched It's challenging--AND wonderful.
  84. A1: Have my Ss evaluate OTHER Ss projects they find online. Love to find errors/problems. #miched
  85. A1: Using video to coach Ts is a helpful way to differentiate learning for adults. #miched
  86. So "local control" destroyed Career & Tech in #MichEd? Not MM curric? Starvation funding? Endless "college for all?"  http://bridgemi.com/2015/01/destroying-michigans-career-tech-system-to-save-it/ 
  87. A1: pt.2 On the other hand, sometimes it also is the opposite, a short how-to or focus video. Ex- “What is ten times more?” #MichED
  88. A1 #miched As an opportunity for another means of representation of learning. Creativity can take over, too.
  89. A1: Video uses so many skills: Story telling, creating images: Excellent tool to see where students are in learning #miched
  90. Does anyone have any student video projects archived they would be willing to share? I'd love to borrow some projects. #miched
  91. @bushjms Esp. if it is published to the web and can be viewed outside of the school #miched
  92. @dprindle They can put their entire life on social media but freeze when it comes to videos. Go figure!? #miched
  93. Gamify your class discussions with fantasy football mechanics in 2015.  http://goo.gl/s39LRi  #miched
  94. A1: Encompasses all forms of literacy. Most importantly, design. Which is often overlooked. Very important skill. Synthesis. #MichEd
  95. @Denniston_Steve Hey there! Haven't seen you in a bit! Hope all is well. Welcome back to #miched
  96. A1: Videos are great tools to showcase work: Create a portfolio piece #miched
  97. @DavidTheune we also have a videographer for monologues, improv, etc. Then we edit, put it on @EDpuzzle and the students critique #miched
  98. A1 con't:: To help Ss understand what kind of thinking skills involved in creating vid. & guiding them in enquiry or reflection. #miched
  99. A1: Videos give Ss a chance she show what they learned through movement, demonstration, or acting it out. #miched
  100. @dragan39 This is right up alley - share all your knowledge with #miched
  101. @tmaynard5 I forgot last week but I wanted to get back in the game! #miched
  102. Checking in. I teach 2nd grade. I have only done a little video. Interested in getting some ideas. #michED
  103. Hearing a lot about video being authentic to today's students, but they can be hard for some teachers. Next question touches on this #michED
  104. @lindseycboyle builds in cross curricular skills! What do you mean I have to write in science?! #miched
  105. A1: Videos take the nerves out of presenting in front of class: Students can talk to camera alone but not in front of 30 + #miched
  106. Q2: What's the single biggest obstacle you've experienced in doing video projects with students? #michED  https://vine.co/v/OD2tJ55BqHt 
  107. @dprindle Glad you could stop by #miched How was #miflip15 ? Looked amazing from the twitter side!
  108. Hey everybody! Trevor from GR here. Just stopping in for as long as I can. Excited about this topic! #miched
  109. @smithand1015 I really like using video for explaining math. They are better at verbal explanations in 1st.  http://bit.ly/17Ja4pr  #miched
  110. We really want to help students in their thinking about how to communicate with other people - video production helps that process #miched
  111. A1: thinking about how to doc learning process with ss vd projects. Ss Reflection is key #miched
  112. @heathergauck I would love to see some elementary examples of student video creation projects! #miched
  113. A2: Time: Students need lots of time with tool to get it h just right. I have to be firm with deadlines or it can take forever #miched
  114. A2 Ss get hung up trying to get it just right when sometimes it is more important to publish as is #miched
  115. Student created math tutorials are awesome and I parents love to see them! #MichEd
  116. A2: The obvious one obstacle is equipment and compatibility with school set ups. #miched
  117. A2: Running out of time, or before 1:1 having a device for all. #miched
  118. A2: Scheduling and time. Each (Chem) group had to be monitored for safety while others had to be kept on other tasks. #miched
  119. My Ss filmed interviews with WW2 vets, preserving these heroes stories FOREVER. And you an imagine how much my kids learned #miched
  120. A2: Transformation of learned knowledge into creative display a definite challenge on deeper knowledge level. Ss grow w/challenge #miched
  121. A1: For me, the Tch, video is a part of my #flipclass structure. For Ss video is creation, communication, teamwork. #miched
  122. A2: devices and software. We aren't 1:1, or even technically BYOD. Getting kids access to devices is the biggest obstacle #miched
  123. @blocht574 Exactly. Students think a few minute video should only take a few minutes to make... NOT! #miched
  124. A1 Are video chats shared with parents to demonstrate growth, formative assessment? #miched
  125. A2 Ss don't get authentic audiences. They don't believe their products are meant for real exposure #miched
  126. A2: Overcoming the perceived need for perfection. Afraid it won't be good enough or match what someone else is doing. #miched
  127. A2: When I first tried video: Students just got caught up being silly not focused on target: NEED to focus students to hit target #miched
  128. @ErinMastin That's awesome! Do you have them use this for partner or reflection time then? #miched
  129. A2: Collecting and showcasing videos from multiple devices from BYOT #miched
  130. Q2: without a doubt find a free and easy to use editing software. Haven't really found a solution to this problem yet #miched
  131. @jrommel These are always meaningful because we push them out. This yr? Growing up w/ ALS mother, religious independence. #miched #power
  132. @PhysicsGuyTighe @blocht574 - Ss will practice OVER AND OVER as they try to make it perfect. Great learning experience. #miched
  133. A2: Getting Ss to focus on quality prep work (eg storyboarding) before diving right in to recording without a purpose! #miched
  134. A2: Easy to get lots of footage, esp if 'free styling" for data gathering. Difficult to find time for review, edit, final cut. #miched
  135. Student created video are a wonderful resource in that the parents can see what their students are doing in the class. #miched
  136. @PhysicsGuyTighe YEP or they want to re-shoot a million times because they don't like a part #miched Raw is fine for me
  137. @tmaynard5 Great. Weather hampered attendance but everyone loved the space and used it well. Big thanks to @SteelcaseEDU #miched
  138. A2: Back in the day it was file size/storage... Now it's what do I use. #miched
  139. A2 - initially one of my biggest obstacles was student final project expectations leading to unrealistic timelines #miched
  140. @DavidTheune I'm gearing up for my 2nd year doing digital narratives. The challenges for Ss and T makes the process so wonderful. #miched
  141. Before I go wanted to share our tech clubs first attempt at green screen vids. Ss has lots of fun creating  http://youtu.be/vrim45zZVvo  #miched
  142. @conniehamilton I think the equipment obstacle is more an obstacle for adults #michED
  143. A2: Just the logistics. Getting the sound, lighting, etc right and being able to share it easily w/ Tch and other Ss. #miched
  144. @smithand1015 Most of the times they do the problem with a partner and then explain on their own or they do it all on their own. #miched
  145. @ryanhorne0076 Ss just busted no 11 men can’t carry out 150 million dollars. Sorry George, Matt, Brad. Oceans 11 #miched
  146. A2: Many challenges - Time consuming, poor audio, off topic, too long, too short, poor scripting. Still I love to do video #miched
  147. A2: most recently it was w difficulty actually sharing the finished videos from various devices w a network that wasn't cooperating #miched
  148. A2: The biggest problem I have found is Ss being off task because of the tech opportunities. Easily rectified. Video ops are great. #michED
  149. A1: using videos in Biology to create teaching videos by Ss for Ss ink order to review concepts for their test. #miched
  150. @jrommel timelines are tough in the creative process. Have to put the emphasis on learning and product, not due date, tough to do #miched
  151. @techsavvyed developing auth projects that can be put before professionals in whatever field we're studying is my current pursuit #miched
  152. @ErinMastin @smithand1015 #Miched I LOVE using video for my young Ss to explain their thinking in math too!
  153. @kithard AH yes the poor audio: I had students make a great video but we could not hear them: Buy some good mics or do voice over #miched
  154. A2: TIME! I feel as though I haven't had enough time/ training to implement with authenticity and purpose #miched
  155. A2 we have to approach it like any other manipulative. First explore/play then it can become a tool #miched
  156. @blocht574 I love to have Ss use it to explain answers or share out what they learned. #miched
  157. @PhysicsGuyTighe @blocht574 I encourage storyboarding and scripting for most video projects. And always shooting multiple takes #miched
  158. @techsavvyed @blocht574 yup, mine have been too caught up in creating bloopers for end instead of meaningful content #miched
  159. @techsavvyed When using a new tech tool the first time: Love a day of play to learn tool!! #miched help get the silly out
  160. A2: The biggest challenges I see is the lack of powerful enough machines to do editing on... oh and rendring time : #miched
  161. A2 side note. Many of my Ss record their experiments or whatever we are doing with their own phones for their friends to see. #miched
  162. A2: Making sure the video project is essential to standards #miched
  163. @kithard I was trying to formulate something along those lines. “Try talking a little louder…” was my mantra with macbook video #MichED
  164. Not sure where #MichEd questions are now, but I made a test time lapse with art teacher, going to try students next.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wz-5O76JLo8 
  165. A2: We spent a lot of time of effective videoing methods and time management skills. #michED
  166. @techsavvyed @bushjms Was thinking more about lower elem. But agreed, most upper el, MS and older do. #miched
  167. @heathergauck @smithand1015 It can lead to uncovering some very unique ways to think/solve a problem. We are trying to share more #miched
  168. A2: some of my Ss have lack of experience with tech, having to share a room which causes us to have a lot of background noise. #miched
  169. Anyone have a good way to organize videos to store them in one place? #miched
  170. @heathergauck on iMovie I could turn up their vocal afterward, but only so much. #MichED
  171. Register now for Nova Now in MI for Feb 6-7 to see super presenters like @rushtonh and @edrethink - -->  http://ow.ly/F70dq  - #miched
  172. @Denniston_Steve @heathergauck @smithand1015 I’ve heard of that app but haven’t gotten to it yet. We use Explain Everything. #miched
  173. @ronhoutman the onslaught of chromebooks may push the editing apps development #miched
  174. A2: acess to Tech, and where to host Vids for easy access. #miched
  175. @ELucky9 @blocht574 I have students use iPhone earbuds w/ mic for iOS devices. Use to use a radio shack wireless setup with cameras #miched
  176. @bushjms Agreed-sometimes content can get lost in the tech. Delicate balance for Ss and Ts to achieve. #miched
  177. @JR_evans Google drive? Perhaps a private YouTube channel (use one for my band kids) #miched
  178. We constantly emphasize that videos are just another medium for storytelling. And the best stories are simple and have emotion #miched
  179. @JR_evans I have used youtube channel/playlist, in a google drive folder, in a LMS folder specific to that subject #MichED .
  180. A2: #miched Teachers are reluctant to allow students free reign to explore, experiment, apply b/c they don't know how themselves.
  181. Hello #miched! Cory Timmer from Zeeland checking in late - had to lose in Uno before I could join. Great topic!
  182. @JR_evans Now that is a great Question: ANYONE have a method or tool for organizing student created videos? #miched
  183. Any recommendations for decent FREE editing software? #miched
  184. It sounds like there are lots of obstacles. if you see someone share an obstacle you've overcome, send them a tweet. #michED
  185. @heathergauck I really liked the ability to zoom in on certain scenes that Camtasia has #MichED
  186. Ok last 1. Students make video and audio evidence to support their side in mock court case! #miched  http://youtu.be/p7iPH4niSvo 
  187. @blocht574 @JR_evans I use Google. Drive. Unlimited storage and the opportunity to easily lock down permissions. #miched
  188. @JR_evans @jrommel I struggle to develop timelines that are not too restrictive but also don't drag the process out. Suggestions? #miched
  189. Let's talk about some practical tips to help manage video projects. #michED
  190. A2) making sure it meets the quality I have in mind. I now show examples first. #michED
  191. Q3: What limitations and/or guidelines should students have while working on a video project? #michED  https://vine.co/v/OD2FE563hrQ 
  192. @adirlam yes projects have a way of spinning out of their intended orbit. Important to know why you're doing what you're doing #MichED
  193. GAFE schools have unlimited drive storage. Share a folder with your class, make subfolders for assignments and upload there. #miched
  194. @lmcdonell14 green sheets from Walmart and Green Screen app by Do Ink. Simple. Kid friendly #miched
  195. @DerekBraman I would think parents would love 2 see their child ENGAGED in process of learning a subject, speaking about math, sci. #miched
  196. A2 biggest obstacle I encounter is student privacy and not showing students if it is to be published. #MichEd
  197. I just bought a green screen kit and plan to run a videography course in our after school FabLab. Great topic. #miched
  198. A3: Guidelines related to standards or topic. Limitations no! #miched
  199. A3: The purpose of the vid -does it have to be perfect, is it for sharing content, is it for presentation. Ss need to know this. #miched
  200. Q3: Time limits! Student videos can get long and unfocused without. #miched
  201. @TrevorMuir  http://wevideo.com  has a free editing version that's pretty great-cloud based and kids can share it too #miched
  202. If you attend ONE workshop: Tweens, Teens & Social Media: What PARENTS & EDUCATORS Need to Know!  https://www.smore.com/12k9v  #michEd
  203. A3: We talk a lot about digital citizenship & focusing on the learning aspect of standard. Also be mindful of learning around you #miched
  204. A3: keep it school appropriate and give them time guidelines. Minimum/maximum. Then see what they can do! #miched
  205. A3 Saw a showcase last night of student created videos. Only guidelines were theme & time limit. I was blown away by creativity! #michED
  206. Spent 150 on green screen and lights, teacher down the hall bought $2 app and green butcher paper and they turn out better than mine #miched
  207. It's fun to offer vid as a presentation option in projects. Had success with that. We also vid all Passion Time presentations. #miched
  208. @LizWillobee Sounds like a cool project. Be watching for yr results! #miched
  209. A3: Not sure it is a limitation, but a clearly defined rubric of expectations is an absolute must. #miched
  210. @tmaynard5 @Denniston_Steve Explain Everything lets me record and send to good drive or dropbox from within the app. #miched
  211. @blocht574 @JR_evans We host a student tech fest each spring to showcase projects. Here is last year's link  http://goo.gl/YgbmYc  #miched
  212. #michED a3: Need to have a model to follow: Clear expectations to focus on learning target. Min and Max times
  213. Easy to create green screens. 4 x8 insulation panels taped together and painted with flat green apple Behr paint. #miched
  214. Ravenna MS principal here trying first chat! @Denniston_Steve A3 keep them focused w pre-planning #miched
  215. @LizWillobee #miched LOVE Greenscreens. We just use green construction paper for ours. Have fun!
  216. @Denniston_Steve: A3: Not sure it is a limitation, but a clearly defined rubric of expectations is an absolute must. #miched
  217. A3: keeping it on topic, length of video, editing, and it was a cooperative project with group(if it was a group project). #miched
  218. @techsavvyed A3 record in public areas. Probably a bad move to let them record in the bathroom... #miched
  219. @LizWillobee #miched There is a lego stop motion for younger Ss that works really well and is easy
  220. A3: Find kids do not know how to focus. Need discussion, guidance storyboarding... #miched
  221. A3: Also, pre-planning. Sometimes just graded the script/storyboard, not the final video. #miched
  222. A3: I make sure they have storyboard/script done ahead of time! Also we watch this video:  http://scnforyou.com/ready-set-plan/  #miched
  223. A3 some limitations are a must but w too many it limits creativity. #miched
  224. A3: Must be school appropriate. Time limits are important and can be a fun learning tool. (i.e. WWI in 1 minute / WWII in 2 minutes) #MichEd
  225. @tmaynard5 no, it was a district project K-12, so not from my building. But included lots of elementary..most made at home #miched
  226. @Denniston_Steve @athorp As a T that embraces messy learning. Might reluctant Ts not have time needed to cmplte messy learning? #MichED
  227. @LizWillobee Yeah, I tried without a model and it was all over the place: Gives a template to follow #michED
  228. @mernickerson: Q3: Time limits! Student videos can get long and unfocused without. #miched” A must!
  229. A3 guidelines =solid standards base with relevant & creative/memorable output limits = no people or TEC damage in the process #miched
  230. A3 - If I could give just one piece of advice to students as they do video: 🇸️🇹️🇴️🇷️🇾️🇧️🇴️🇦️🇷️🇩️❗ #miched
  231. A3: modeling, lots of demonstrating a great first step for video boundaries. #miched
  232. Isnt it incredible how much ease Ss work with videos? Very different world than a decade ago We have to take advantage of that as Ts #miched
  233. A3: Perhaps guideline of sharing with one other person before submitting. Get a different perspective. #miched
  234. @LizWillobee #miched Let me know how it goes. I found my lighting in my new room doesnt work as good as last year.
  235. A3: Creative requirements/limits too. (i.e. "The Cold War in 10 SnapChats") #MichEd
  236. @jrommel My kids do a lot of stop motion in Passion Time. Wonder if we can incorp green screen....#miched
  237. Throw a discussion about video in the classroom out to #miched and read and watch the creativity fly. Can't keep up w the feed #miched
  238. @mernickerson: A3: Also, pre-planning. Sometimes just graded the script/storyboard, not the final video. #miched” great idea, room to fail
  239. @bushjms @adirlam Right. There needs 2 be a purpose for each tech being used. "The kids like it," or, "it's cool," isn't good enough #miched
  240. @adirlam @bushjms Sometimes the tech takes over from the content and becomes the STAR of the class/show. Happened even in MY DAY. #miched
  241. SO What video editing apps can students use? Free or pay? #miched
  242. Does anyone else videotape kids working on projects? I do all the time and post them on our site. Parents like the view...#miched
  243. I love the idea of guided peer review. Students care what other students have to say more than what T says. #miched
  244. A3: a clear purpose, time range, and a rough plan. Without a plan, I've had Ss scrap a whole project after days spent filming #miched
  245. @blocht574 always loved imovie. Also stop motion studio! (Both paid though) #miched
  246. @blocht574 WeVideo is a great free tool that is web based for easy accessibility. #miched
  247. It's time to share some inspiration and student videos you love! #michED
  248. @LizWillobee I like the idea, I don't right now but should look into it! #michED
  249. WeVideo also has apps for uploading and editing. Connects to Drive for GAFE schools. #miched
  250. My students use @wevideo pretty much exclusively, but we do have a Mac lab in our school where they use iMovie. #miched
  251. @ryanhorne0076 @bushjms @adirlam and yet kids like it and it's cool is a great way to slip content into the equation! #miched
  252. WORST student video EVER MADE. Makes me laugh every time I watch it! From last year's class, ha ha! #miched  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2shyOvFR9Jc 
  253. @kithard Specifically teaching what makes good video needs to come before teaching video software. Time consuming, but essential #miched
  254. @blocht574 unique question: any tools that can edit ipad video without installing apps? Have access to devices but can't add apps. #miched
  255. A4: Social media=inspirational free easy editing & creation apps in connection with Soc Studies Stories that can be conveyed #miched
  256. Regarding WeVideo-do most use free version or ed subscription? Investigating currently as iMovie alternative. #miched
  257. #Miched linking green screen effects to video story problems. Easy to do with @CamtasiaMac http://t.co/zfGXd5ANhf
    #Miched linking green screen effects to video story problems. Easy to do with @CamtasiaMac pic.twitter.com/zfGXd5ANhf
  258. @jrommel @bushjms @adirlam As long as it's 90% learning & 10% flash, and not the other way around. #miched
  259. @LizWillobee Got miles of projects... but never got around to posting-made DVDs. Looking 2 enter the real world last couple yrs. #miched
  260. A4: My students always were inspired by seeing other student videos such as  http://youtu.be/T7TI-AJi2O8  #miched
  261. @rsvoigt do you have any good cheat sheets or websites on how to use iMovie? #miched
  262. #miched This was made by me with Ss as the actors. Scafolding for my resource kiddos.  http://youtu.be/qX51u2FbDSE 
  263. Any easy video apps good for editing video from an iPhone or iPad? #miched #GLEdTech
  264. @kithard What is that dist-ance? What is that dist-ance? What is that dist-ance from the sun-un-un? LOL #miched
  265. AX: Couple of my kids did 'Room 12 News' (our clsrm) last yr. iMovie. Some good skills, grt msg. #miched  http://vimeo.com/68158736 
  266. @teachlove4SpEd Sadly no, I have been using Youtube capture .... looking at alternatives #miched
  267. Our kids do a news show for the school every morning. No adults at all, they work the camera, write the scripts. All them. #miched
  268. Thank goodness for One Tab in G-Chrome. I now have violated my limit for the amount of tabs open. Thanks #miched
  269. A3) thinking about doing a student created story problem video of the week for all ss #michED
  270. My morning news crew kids recently made a YouTube channel and Twitter. They'd love encouragement! #miched  https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCQqohoq6intdY5KrRCL41YA  @VHToday
  271. I wish I had access to the video our first graders doing their rap of "Don't Let the Pigeon Ride the Bus". So cute! #miched
  272. #miched Learning curve is definitely lessening on what it takes to create glimpse videos.
  273. @athorp to allow HS Alg2 Ss opp to go off on a tangent requires lots of prep 2make sure stndrds are met or use an xtra open day. #miched
  274. PicPlayPost Create still photos w videos in same screen to tell a story, showcase SS & TS #miched http://t.co/s2cXJ13mAO
    PicPlayPost Create still photos w videos in same screen to tell a story, showcase SS & TS #miched pic.twitter.com/s2cXJ13mAO
  275. @teachlove4SpEd Sorry. Kinda seat-of-my-pants approach w kids. That's something I should do too! #miched
  276. For those making morning news, how do you broadcast to classrooms? #MichEd
  277. Have to duck out a little early tonight. Thanks @techsavvyed for an informative chat!! Great to see the student videos #michED
  278. Note to self. Go back to tonight's #miched storify archives and watch all the fun video examples shared by amazing PLN.
  279. Talking and sharing video is great, but assessing it can be difficult! #michED
  280. Q5: What strategies or resources can be used for assessing student created video? #michED  https://vine.co/v/OD2xqeZFv7H 
  281. Great PSA vid I can finally show. One Ss was in foster care and is no longer a minor or in the system.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rL12pTWprkM  #miched
  282. Sorry, #miched Wonderfully so, I was pulled away from my exchange daughter--but to watch a digital narrative she made when at home. So cool!
  283. @techsavvyed do classrooms access at their own leisure? We have a very dated system and I'm thinking about alternatives #miched
  284. @techsavvyed Even easier now when apps like Instagram and Vine take away the uploading. #miched
  285. @theemrmoore #miched I LOVE Animoto. SOOOO easy to use and makes great little videos
  286. A5: Give two types of feedback: One on learning target and other on production value: Grade is on if they hit learning target #miched
  287. I love using Stop Motion and Explain Everything. The students love using iMovie, especially the trailers to showcase work. #michED
  288. @heathergauck @theemrmoore Animoto is a great entry tool to video crating: So simple to use #miched
  289. @DavidTheune Any pearls of wisdom that you can pass along? Trying to stretch Ss to dig deeper when exploring their stories. #miched
  290. A5: I lived and died by the rubric for these sort of projects. Clear expectations and unambiguous grading. #miched
  291. @blocht574 @theemrmoore #miched and it's free and you can make a movie from your phone in 10minutes
  292. A5: As a technology teacher, I was comfortable grading video technique. I had students peer review each other on emotional impact #michED
  293. @kithard So Right! Make some popcorn cause it's gonna be Fun! #miched
  294. Have you heard of ArchiTreks? It’s a great program for students. Learn more here:  http://ow.ly/Hlg0p  #K12 #Miched #architecture
  295. @LynchMindy For a 1st timer here at #miched you are killing it! Keep sharing.
  296. A5: Students do a great job self assessing their videos: Give them check lists and they totally get it #miched
  297. @koegelde I would just say it all has to start with AUDIENCE & PURPOSE. What do the Ss want to DO with their narrative? Then, do it. #miched
  298. A5: With iPads 1:1, our Ss use iMovie for everything. Capturing science exp., reenacting history. #miched @Creekside_MS
  299. @techsavvyed Conversely, as a math/science teacher,I was not comfortable grading style or technique! #miched
  300. Q5: Wait we have to grade these? I’m exhausted at the end of a project. #miched
  301. 2nd hour volcanoes #miched Utube videos w Capture App on iPad. So cool, the SS loved viewing all the others!  http://youtu.be/HVxIL-ZcVOY 
  302. @mbck @LynchMindy And I have the good fortune of working with her every day at Ravenna. #miched
  303. @techsavvyed #Miched peeps, I challenge you to make a video of something you learned tonight.
  304. @tmaynard5 Just got kiddos in bed, still trying to catch up! Busy chat tonight. #miched
  305. @ErinMastin NO you don't have to grade but watch and give feedback are MUSTS ..You know sit back have popcorn and become Ebert #miched
  306. My apologies, I have to go. Meeting about the start. Have a great week all! Thanks #michED
  307. @Mrs_Gwilt Hey, hi, Gwilt. Good to meet up after our great #MIFlip this past wkend, eh?! #miched
  308. @ErinMastin Exhausting, but so much more interesting than looking at same-oh, same-oh papers handouts. :-) #miched
  309. @heathergauck @blocht574 I'm familiar with animoto. Will go the iMovie route for ease of use on iPhone or iPad. Thank you! #miched #gledtech
  310. @heathergauck for sure! I love starting w/ that and then using goobric! #miched
  311. A5: loving the answers to A5 thanks for the help and ideas #miched
  312. Personally, I assess the content of the video and give checklists for my "production expectations" before I grade. #miched
  313. @tmaynard5 Not to mention I have to watch every one of @techsavvyed Vine clips! Hilarious! #miched
  314. I figure it's the only fair way to grade since my class isn't really a "video productions" class (I teach ELA). #miched
  315. Last question of the night folks, going to make you think hard about this one! #michED
  316. @MrBadiner @techsavvyed I know - I am so far behind too! Definitely need to go back to the archives to watch all vids. amazing! #miched
  317. In 1st grade we have practiced making good videos. We talk about no bugger shots when you are recording yourself. #miched #teachablemoments
  318. A5 Have a component where SS have input on grades: their own and others #miched
  319. This weeks #21stedchat topic: Does classroom design affect learning? Join @Edu_Thompson & I Sun 8 PM ET (US) #miched
  320. #MichEd tonight I learned that @techsavvyed has way too much fun making vines with his kids. I'm going to have to try some now...
  321. #miched Before this ends, how are the tweetups in Feb. being organized?
  322. @blocht574 Ok fine. I’ve been trying have them post videos to blog so I can give feedback. Much better than piles of paper at home. #miched
  323. @ErinMastin Or outtakes that are longer than the actual project? Ha, ha. #miched
  324. A5: rubrics that I give to SS at the beginning of the project to help guide them #miched
  325. Answers to ? 5 are giving me great ideas. I think I am going to push students assessing themselves and each other's videos. #miched
  326. Side note: Our English Department want T's to record 30 sec vids about books they have read and recommend. #miched
  327. Gotta sneak this in. #cuerockstar presented my @MACUL 7/7-7/9. Saugatuck. Registration/Faculty app at  http://cuerockstar.org  #miched party
  328. #miched For Blogging Videos, Jr. Blogger or Blogger Jr. is a GREAT app for little ones to use
  329. @ErinMastin Have a viewing party with all the kids: Roll out the red carpet and watch!! #miched
  330. @talkEDtv Oh yeah had one of those. Love it when they capture you yelling at another Ss because they forgot to hit stop record. Ha! #miched
  331. @dprindle Slap a QR code on the book with a link to the video! #miched
