Way back when, I discussed an app called One Second Every Day and an idea I had for integrating it with learning. I was pretty happy with how this project turned out. Here's what we did:
Back in September, I asked my students to take short videos or snapshots of their learning each Friday. We were already doing genius hour, so I just had them grab the iPads and take pictures at the same time. By the end of the year, most students had a collection of 25-50 photos and videos documenting learning and important classroom events. We then put them together using Windows Movie Maker, which was a bit of a disaster since there's a file corruption error that affected about 20% of my students and which we didn't have time to fix (you have to submit the files to Microsoft for correction). However, generally I, and the students, were pretty pleased with the results, so with their permission, I'm going to share them with you!
Question of the Day:
How do your students showcase learning at the end of the year?
This is the first time I've done the learning videos. Other years, I've done projects, graphics, posters.... so far, I think this is my favorite.Tweet
