Video is a great tool for learning. I enjoy TED talks, KHAN academy, and YouTube on a regular basis. The videos I enjoy the best are the videos that inspire creative thinking through powerful, authentic messages. I am an advocate for reflection and I share that with my students. I also challenge them regularly as well. My students understand "why" I asked them to do what they do in my classroom and it is shown in their reflective writing pieces that we do. The reason I share this story is that my idea going forward is to create an inspirational video that provides authentic communication from student interviews and classroom observations in the different stages of the learning process. So instead of just having their responses on paper or just filming the classroom during instruction, I want to combine both of these to create a video that links; student engagement and their personal thoughts. I think this could a be a powerful tool to inspire creative minds going forward.
