Videos Inspired By Dr. Robert Brooks' Article: "The Impact of Teachers: A Story of Indelible Memories and Self-Esteem"

Based on the attached article by Dr. Robert Brooks, teachers would answer one or more of the following questions posed by Brooks in the article through videos: 1. Describe a teacher you really liked when you were a student. 2. Please describe one experience that you had with an educator, when you were a student, that reinforced your self-esteem."

Monthly Educational Video Challenge

Each month, teachers are given a prompt, such as, "What does feedback look like in your classroom?" and invited to post the shortest video that best illustrates the answer to the question. I wouldn't have too many guidelines for the video as to encourage creativity. The challenge could also focus on helping educators create video content for their classroom, such as "Create a 'flipped classroom' video for your students that teaches them some thing"; "Create a video that introduces you to your class" or "Create a video that shows parents/caregivers how to best support their child in your classroom." Perhaps some kind of branding could be layered on the video in order to show its connection to the ReDesign challenge.
