Managing those iPad videos

VIDEO IS THE NEW PEN! (…and it’s mightier too!)

The thought makes many people think the world has ended but for 21st Century kids, videoing their thoughts and creations and experiences and then publishing it to the world is as easy as picking up a pen. In fact, most are more likely to have a device ready to film, edit, add subtitles and music than a pen or pencil. I like to think we only ever used pens because we didn’t have a video camera in our pocket, sorry if that upsets anyone. For example, my kids do write poems but performing them as videos makes them really think about the effect their words have on an audience.

MANAGING THE NEW PEN’S SCRIBBLINGS (How to manage all the video)

The new issue that everyone in education is how to manage and share all this video content. I have all my colleagues and students uploading to the same account. The teachers use this one account for videos:

  1. Recorded by their iPads
  2. Recorded by Student iPads (Teacher Logs-in, uploads, logs-out)
  3. Explain Everything (App) whiteboard lessons
  4. Video tutorials for practical tasks
  5. Youtube videos discovered on Youtube itself and added to course “Playlists”

This allows the teachers to manage all the videos from one place. It also helps them share ideas and showcase work between classrooms. Here’s a 3-page outline to how we do it using Youtube’s management tools.

  2. Hi Richard,
    Thanks for the brilliant notes. They look fab and are very clear.
    I have a couple of questions regarding using one youtube account.
    1. Do you set up a ‘dummy’ user within Google Apps for Education and use that user’s youtube account?
    2. I thought there was a 30gb limit per person? Have you found this to be enough?

    Thanks in advance.
    Regards
    Helen

    • Thanks!
      1. My school doesn’t use Google apps for education and my department use a standard account. But if we did, a dummy account would the way to go.
      2. I don’t think there is a limit especially after you ‘unlock’ the account under settings with a mobile number.
