My Class Makes this Web Show Called Portable TV… http://bit.ly/16HkpMF My Class Makes this Web Show Called Portable TV…
It took several years for me to get the courage to do video with my junior level students. Audio? No problem. My students seemed happy about creating radio style shows that we called Portable Radio. I had done that with my students for well over six years. We had quite a bit of success with show. The students were played several times on CBC radio, we won awards and even appeared on TV. Portable Radio lives on, although we don’t make as many shows as we used to.
Video on the other hand, I viewed with trepidation. I guess I had bought into the fear and paranoia of all the horrible things that could happen if I were to post images of my students’ faces. I was certain the parents of my students would feel the same way.

In sum, video can be an educational tool to engage and inform students with projects that require research, planning, interviewing and writing. it’s an important part of my “scholarship in practice” course because it teaches students valuable communication skills that they can use in the future.

Film as a Great Motivator [Case Studies] http://www.edutopia.org/blog/power-of-visual-media-mark-phillips Film as a Great Motivator [Case Studies]
Once you become tuned into using film in the classroom in a multiplicity of ways, you'll find yourself frequently seeing scenes in films in theaters, on DVDs or in TV shows that will immediately register as ones you'd like to use. Keep a notebook or a computer file to jot down the reminders. Also, unlike the old days of videotape, the scenes or chapters on DVDs and Blu Ray discs make quick access easy.
How video instruction can change education http://learnitin5.editme.com/Classroom-Video-Tools This creative use of video teaching was presented in a fascinating virtual conference by Discovery Education Network. The idea is similar to what's being done in the Khan Academy, which creates video lessons that students can view outside of school, so lecture time can be replaced with practice and small-group and individual instruction.
The video here explains the idea of "flipping" teaching, so lecture is done outside of class and more practice is done during the school day. The video below shows classroom activities, after students have viewed an instructional video.

Ultimately the teacher wants students to learn to create those elements for themselves.
This scaffolding can be curriculum-specific and scaled according to levels. The range from scaffolded beginner projects to fully original projects described in our chart extends from Level 1 to Level 15 ...
