Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The idea of use of video production in education is not new. It just wasn't realistic for all classrooms to accomplish in the past. Either technical or financial barriers existed. YouTube Live, along with a laptop and webcam, make this challenge a possibility for all students and classrooms.

With live streaming and archiving on YouTube, our students will also become creators of content and have the ability to share to a larger audience. The size of this audience can be controlled through the audience features on YouTube (private, unlisted or public). These tools would be a great support in an Inquiry process or in Problem Based Learning.

By sharing with a larger community, peers and experts can be a part of the process when creating content as well as be involved in providing feedback, creating conditions for excellent Formative Assessment supports.

The tools and processes have changed drastically since this topic was presented by Scott at ISTE '15. This session will be appropriate for beginners as well as those who would like an update on these tools and processes.


Curriculum connections will be reviewed. (10 minutes)
Needed hardware will be discussed (using often readily available options). (10 minutes)
Free online tools (looking at a variety of options) will be used to create the collaborate content. (10 minutes)
Both in-classroom and virtual methods of students creating their content will be demonstrated where the participants will create their own online talk show. (30 minutes).
