Video Sharing – NMCC

November 9th, 2011

The advent of video sharing sites have made communicating through moving images almost effortless. These sites allow users to upload video and share it with the public at large or invited guests. Most video sharing sites also enable other types of social communication such as text/audio/video commenting, like/disklike-based voting systems, profiles, traversal through profile connections, as well as many more.

    Videos make the best tutorials for “how to” do something.

    The true issues that comes from this is copyright and appropriateness. Is appropriateness a moral issue, where is the line drawn?

    Yet another powerful tool. Let’s not hold our kids back! They shouldn’t have to “powerdown” when they come to school!

    As mentioned previously, what a great way to show, visually, what you know and make someone else better – how to play guitar, how to make a movie in iMovie, understanding Algebra…

    I’m not a textbook fan. With sites like YouTube, we can bring the world to our students. They can experience beyond books, 16mm films and discover the greater world. (And we can learn from those who know what we don’t.)

    In ELA – I have my students write and present a how to paper, this would be an excellent project to do as video sharing.

    This is a great enhancement to classroom/program teaching & learning

    Although I have used video sharing for classes as well as personal use (how to make a set of steps, etc.), I hate that there is so much “junk” out there that has really no use for me. I’m hoping this gets better and that folks will censor themselves as this tool is used more.

    Unfortunately, ALL video and image tools are blocked at our school. And, when a teacher has found something they wish to use in school, they are not able to have easy access to those sites.

    I knew about youtube and used it many times to listen to music, etc. It wasn’t until last year, however, that my 8th grade students explained to me that anyone can post videos as well. apparently it was something they enjoyed on a regular basis. I’m comfortable with technology but obviously there is so much more I need to learn to keep up with them.

    I offer SAT prep to sophomores and I use a lot of videos available through you-tube and other video sites. This is a great way to offer additional help and the kids have a chance to change gears from taking the quizzes to watching. Personally, I use you-tube for everything! I just learned to knit different stitches using the videos.nI take care of the school web site and I always have current slide shows – kids want to see the latest pictures and parents do also.nAny project I work on with teachers will incorporate videos, glogs, images, prezis, anything to learn something new as part of the learning.

    The current generation is visually oriented, video makes learning much easier

    The instructional videos from Kahn Academy have been a big hit with the students.

    Video sharing programs are blocked at our school. If I want to show a YouTube video in my classroom, I have to go to the Technology coordinator to get him to shut down the filter so I can show a video. I know that many of our students use YouTube at home. They will make videos and then upload to YouTube. It is too bad that we do not have the use of these types of programs in our school.

    We are exploring to use “Second Life” as a means to allow distant learning tapping into our CTE Center.
