How I Use It
This product is an essential tool which serves both the teacher and the student(s). Teachers can easily create "quick hit" videos to differentiate instruction, flip their class, and support parents and students with homework, just to name a few. Students can quickly demonstrate to the teacher that they have an understanding of content by creating their own video. These videos can then be used in an endless amount of ways. Students do need to create accounts that can then sync with the Teacher's. Videos can be viewed on any device and easily allow teachers to share with a weblink.
My Take
Because this app is so versatile, I honestly believe this tool's pedagogy and engagement lie with how the teacher chooses to use it in their classroom. With that said, teachers have the ability to start small and in a comfortable place and then have the opportunity to branch out and make it more engaging, enhancing and deepening student learning.
