Title: Creating authentic ‘how to’ videos using feedback and testing for effectiveness
Presenter: Kaye Pearson, Beresford Road Public School
Duration: 60 mins
Overview: When students create a procedural text, they often do not understand the audience and purpose. By creating a video using iPads and iMovie then receiving critical feedback from peers, the product is improved. Testing by someone who does not know how to complete the task will help them understand how successful their video was and whether they require further modifications. This is based on our experience in creating videos demonstrating ‘How to fix a TouchScreen on an XO’ and ‘How to replace an XO keyboard’ to present to other students at an XO KidsMeet. The videos were critiqued during the process resulting in the students improving the product and tested by students who didn’t know how to perform this skill. They were then used to teach students from 10 different schools in a workshop, how to fix their XO laptops. One Education has asked to use the videos on their YouTube How to channel.
Target Audience: K-12, Teachers & Executive
