YT Differentiation

Session Description: We know that not every student learns the same thing the same way at the same time. What if you had a stockpile of short videos that reinforced specific content, vocabulary, or processes that you could point students to when they need that “just in time” re-teaching or review?  

Objectives for this session are as follows:
  • Learn search strategies for finding already created educational content.
  • Screencast short quick videos of your own.
  • Curate, organize and share content with students.

Elevator Pitch:

What if you had a stockpile of short videos that reinforced specific content, vocabulary, or processes that you could point students to when they need that “just in time” re-teaching or review?

Make a list:
  • What concepts are you continually repeating?
  • What are some common misconceptions in your class that need clarifying?
  • What is the vocabulary that is essential for your course that some students struggle with?
  • What do you get tired of repeating?
