Creating Video Tutorials for a Flipped classroom A Flipped Classroom is a teaching model which reverses traditional methods. Instruction is delivered at home through interactive websites, teacher-created videos or content and moves the homework style learning to the classroom. Class time is used for creating tasks, exercises and problem solving while the teacher is present to assist and give immediate feedback whereas the homework is designated for learning content and students can form questions about what they have learnt to prepare for their next lesson. This allows the teacher more time to interact with the students. Some teachers like to create informative videos or ask students to create the videos for younger students. These can be made using screencasting software and some apps, such as:

Language, Camera, Action! Motivating Young Learners with Video (by David Dodgson) Back in the sepia-tinged days of 2010 when I was still very much finding my way around blogs and Twitter, I was virtually introduced to Barbara and she kindly offered me the chance to do a guest post here on Teaching Village about how I used PowerPoint in class. 18 months on, we again get the chance to collaborate as part of the EVO 2012 Digital Storytelling for Young Learners team along with some other fantastic educators, namely Shelly Terrell, Özge Karaoğlu, Esra Girgin, Jennifer Verschoor, Michelle Worgan, and Sabrina De Vita (full details are included at the end of this post). As part of our EVO event, I will co-moderate a session about Video Stories with Young Learners with Özge. As a prelude to that, am delighted to have the chance to return to Teaching Village to share some of the ideas I’ve used in class, often with little more than a video-recording device and some editing software – and creative young students of course!

Transcripts - YouTube Help Transcripts are a simple way of creating captions. They only contain the text of what is said in the video and you don't need to enter any time codes. You can enter a transcript directly in your video or follow the steps below to create a transcript file. Transcripts work best with videos that are less than an hour long with good sound quality and clear speech.

5 Heutagogical Tips to Empower Lifelong Learners Online 5 Heutagogical Tips to Empower Lifelong Learners Online Prior to joining the marketing team at SchoolKeep, I worked as an educational program manager for an experiential learning company. As the company grew, I was forced to take on new, intimidating marketing tasks. Google RO.ME › North Kingdom In the simplest of terms explaining it – “3 Dreams of Black” is an interactive music video developed in WebGL and optimized for Chrome to showcase its possibilities; written and directed by Chris Milk; based on the song “Black” from Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s ROME album; an album that somewhat is a soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t exist. The music serves to express a story that takes place in a post-apocalyptic landscape where the main characters are played through the voices of Norah Jones and Jack White. More specifically, “3 Dreams of Black” is Norah’s lucid dream where users can partake and gain control of her characters experience.
Education in a technological world) During this half term, I've been busy working with our three lower school classes on a rather special project in their ICT lessons. It all began back in April when I blogged about an app I discovered in the app store that would allow a user to create an aged movie. My brain began to think just how I could incorporate this technology into our planned topic of 'Movie Making'. It seemed too good to be true - crowbarring a video creation app into a topic on movie making? How easy would that be! So, my plans began to take shape. Add subtitles and closed captions - YouTube Help You can transcribe your video and automatically line up your text with the speech in the video. A transcript contains the text of what is said in a video, but no time code information, so you need to set the timing to sync with your video. Note: Since the transcript text is automatically synchronized to your video, the transcript must be in a language supported by our speech recognition technology and in the same language that's spoken in the video. Transcripts are not recommended for videos that are over an hour long or have poor audio quality. Choose the language for the subtitles or closed captions you want to create.
