What's a worn out teacher to do when teaching jobs line up back-to-back with minimal time to prep for the upcoming one? Look to the kids for inspiration and solutions of course!
Here's how the young author of the series, The Teacher Should See This, came to my aid. The task at hand was to find an iPad app or two to support learning in a summer camp with 150-200 high school students, to give them a voice, and document some of their experiences. Within a few hours, she selected the iMovie app, found a few how-to videos, and set off to make her own video on a Where I Am From Poem theme.
It's showtime! Enjoy.
Now, the real question is if the teacher can pull this off. It's the beginning of the first week, so there will be an upcoming post. Here's the beginnings of a three week summer camp journey where I meet with the students for less than four hours for the video/blogging part, but learn so much from them! Kids are amazing people.
Happy video making!
