In Stage 1, you shared that it can be challenging finding videos that not only fit into your schedule, but also match the subject, grade level, or practice you’re looking for.
This is based on Lisa H's idea that education can use the idea of the TED app and its "surprise me" idea for getting viewers the video they wanted but didn't know they needed. I LOVE this and think it could be so powerful for educators. However, what if we could do more with it, make this idea even more powerful. I am thinking about an app for educator videos that does exactly what Lisa explains in her post (letting teacher decide what mood they are in and how much time they have with a video delivered based on that) but adds the ability to comment on that video. Then, these comments help further develop the refinement feature of the app.
By allowing teachers the chance to comment on the video they got, they can help the process. They can rate the video they got based on three criteria: 1. did it meet the criteria I put forth? 2. was the video "good"...was the teaching something from which I learned? 3. What would I have wanted to see that I didn't based on my filtered criteria?
This would simply allow Lisa's idea to go from amazing to like super amazing in that it would be constantly self-improving with these additions.
