About the Course

Do you find that having increasingly larger class sizes makes it difficult to differentiate and help meet individual students’ needs? Do you want a way to incorporate every student’s voice in your classroom? In this class, educators will learn how to get students to create their own videos in order to share their knowledge with the rest of the class. This will be a great way to get students to collaborate throughout the class period as well as to build the classroom’s video library. This will allow you to hold students accountable for their learning. Educators will be provided articles to read about the various uses of videos. We will then have discussions about how you plan to implement the videos either in your class or website so that students can learn from each other. This is a great way to demonstrate how you incorporate technology into the classroom. All technology ability levels are welcome.

This course is appropriate for elementary, middle, and high school educators in every subject area. Educator librarians, instructional coaches, and administrators are invited to join us; they will be asked to create videos in a discipline of their choice. 

Student Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify how to incorporate student videos into the structure of your class and/or website.
  • Form a learning environment for students to create videos that will be critiqued by their peers as well as the teacher.
  • Have students develop meaningful videos that meet their developmental needs.
  • Grade(s): 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade 7th Grade 8th Grade 9th Grade 10th Grade 11th Grade 12th Grade Secondary 6-12
  • Subject(s): Technology Differentiation

Catherine Lee

Catherine Lee is a secondary mathematics teacher who currently works with 7th grade students in Colorado to build their mathematical/critical thinking skills. This is her 15th year of teaching math; 11 years at the middle school level and 4 years at the high school level.

The way in which students learn has changed dramatically from her first year of teaching. Over the course of several years, Catherine has updated her teaching style to meet the needs of the newest generation of digital learners. By creating videos and incorporating them into her class, students are able to use technology in a meaningful way within her classroom and she is able to have small groups to help students succeed. In turn, classroom management has become much easier, better relationships with students have been formed, days are less stressful, and her evaluations have improved. In addition, students are able to watch the videos at home when they are absent or when they want to see the lesson again. The following are quotes from students and one parent:

  • “It has given me the chance to work at my own pace. I can rewind the video if I don’t get something and work on homework faster.”
  • “The positive changes that I have noticed are that people are working harder and it’s a lot more fun to do than watch the teacher stand in front of the class for a large percentage of the class.”
  • “I don’t have to wait for kids to get quiet.”
  • “I’ve seen people understanding more about what is going on and people are becoming more positive and happy to learn new things.”
  • “I feel like my math skills are getting stronger because of the videos. I have seen a positive change in my grades.”
  • “I have been able to focus more and I now have access to the lesson from home! I have been able to go at my own pace. If I have any questions, Mrs. Lee is always available.”
  • “I have noticed that there are more interactions with each other but we still get our work done.”
  •  “My daughter and I no longer argue about doing assignments. I can watch the videos with her and I know how to help her.”

Catherine holds a BA in secondary mathematics from the University of Northern Colorado, a MA in secondary pedagogy and design in mathematics from the University of Colorado in Denver, and a MA in school counseling from Adams State University.

I took this class to see if it was something I could use. It turned out to give me great information, ideas, and clear ways to use student videos in my classroom.
Julie Armstrong
This class makes it easy to learn how to create videos and then teach your students. Catherine is available to help, if you need it. I really enjoyed the class!
