Day 42 2nd iteration: Finishing up


Genius Hour

Today we will hear from:

  • Yerin & Toni Ann from the 11:15 section
  • Parker, Michael & Ari from the 12:20 section

End-of-semester presentation

At the beginning of the semester, it took you time, thoughts, and planning to pick a project for Genius Hour. Now it’s finally the time to see your effort materialize. You can find presentation guidelines in the updated project description.

2nd Iteration

Aim to finish the 2nd iteration of your video today.

Use a screen recording program to capture your video from Vyond, upload it to YouTube (as “unlisted” if you want better privacy), and share the video with this Google Form: https://forms.gle/vb96nWChgfEyXt757

Notes on Rubric Item 6: Research

We began our discussion on BYOD/technology integration with a piece of reading material: LaMaster vs. Stager. To make convincing arguments, we borrow ideas from other people (e.g., publications, websites, and interviews). This is what Item 6 is about.

APA is a citation style the field of education uses.

Purdue provides an excellent resource on how to apply the APA style to your citations. Some of the most relevant information for us is here:

Put a list of citations at the end of the video. It’s just like movie credits!

If you prefer to use other citation styles, such as MLA, and Chicago, you can. Purdue has resources on those, too.

Item 6 doesn’t say how many citations you need. That’s good. In practice, you cite as many as necessary.

Preparing for Friday

Day 41 2nd iteration (Optional meeting)

Today’s class meeting is optional. I will be in the classroom in case you have questions, or a dedicated place for video making.

The plan is to finish our video by Wednesday. We will together reflect on what we have learned on Friday. Remember to using the rubric for guidance: https://ouredit2000.wordpress.com/project-communicating-with-videos-creative-communicator/ (See “Iteration 2”)

We will share our Genius Hour reflections on Apr. 29. Check out the updated project guidelines: https://ouredit2000.wordpress.com/project-genius-hour-empowered-learner/ (See “End-of-semester presentations” towards the end of the document).

Day 40 2nd Iteration (Day 1)


Genius Hour

Today we will hear from:

  • Kyle H. & Sam from the 11:15 section
  • Gabby & Ryan from the 12:20 section

2nd Iteration

The 2nd iteration is supposed to be an improvement over the 1st. You may want to try new ideas, cite new sources, present new perspectives, etc.

You have also received feedback from your classmates, based on a rubric developed from previous research.

Preparing for next week

  • Monday’s class meeting is optional. I will be in the classroom in case you need help, or just the room 🙂
  • Aim to finish your video by Wednesday. With our experience capturing the 1st video, this time we should be able to do it without breaking a sweat.
  • Genius Hour presentation guidelines have been updated. Check out the End-of-semester presentations section in the project guidelines.
  • As always, if you have questions or concerns about this course, talk to me before you leave, or send me an email at lh81655@uga.edu.

Day 39 Reviewing our first videos

There’s design and there’s improvement upon the design. Nothing comes out perfect the first time 🙂


Genius Hour updates

Today we will hear from:

  • Alena & Bailey from the 11:15 section
  • Kayla P. from the 12:20 section

Learning engagement survey

As part of my research, I need your help filling out a survey about learning engagement. It takes about 10 minutes to finish. Your answers help me understand learning designs better. They have no impact on your grades.

Find the survey here: https://ugeorgia.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d73xFosoXT1vW3H

Peer review of our 1st videos

Here are the playlists of our 1st videos (of course it’s “unlisted”):

We will use a rubric created from previous research to guide our peer reviews. Here’s the rubric.

The peer review process does two things:

  1. We get to understand the rubric by using it (a.k.a. learning by doing).
  2. We get feedback from classmates.

These reviews are NOT related to your grades.

Each of us will review two videos based on the rubric, that is, fill out this Google Form twice. I will assign you two numbers so you can find the corresponding videos from the playlist.

Ask me questions if you don’t understand any part of the rubric.

After class, I will collect these peer reviews and send them to the respective authors.

Post review discussion

Based on your peer review process, what do you think we did well? What not so well?

Preparing for Friday

  • We will come to class on Friday and start making an improvement version of our BYOD videos.
  • You will need a new Vyond trial account, because your current trial account will expire soon.
  • I plan to make the second work day (Monday next week) as an optional meeting day.
  • As always, if you have questions or concerns about this course, talk to me before you leave, or send me an email at lh81655@uga.edu.

Day 38 Video 1: Work Day 3


Genius Hour

Today we will hear updates from:

  • Joshua & Harmie from the 11:15 section
  • Amelia & Jessie from the 12:20 section

Video Iteration 1

For the last work day on the first iteration of the video, we will meet in class at regular class time.

Today we will try to finish the first iteration (at least before Wednesday).

We can screen record our video with AceThinker: https://acethinker.com/free-screen-recorder (if AceThinker doesn’t work for you, a less-than-ideal alternative is Loom: https://www.useloom.com).

edit:

When you have recorded the video, upload it to your YouTube account (choose “unlisted” for privacy), so you can share your video in class on Wednesday.

Once you have uploaded your video to YouTube, share the link with this Google Form: https://forms.gle/vVGxy1Dr8vrT344z8

Preparing for Wednesday

  • We will share our videos on Wednesday. Get ready by uploading your videos to YouTube as unlisted.
  • As always, if you have questions or concerns about this course, talk to me before you leave, or send me an email at lh81655@uga.edu.

 

Day 37 1st video: Work Day 2 (optional meeting)

Today’s class meeting is optional. I will be in the classroom to answer questions.

Please keep working on your first video, as described in the project guidelines.

Use the time to record your voice-over, to avoid the noisy environment in Aderhold.

On Monday you are supposed to be finishing the video up. We will use a screen recording app to capture the video from Vyond.

You can also email me your questions at lh81655@uga.edu.

Day 36 Creating the 1st video

This video was made with a free and open-source software: Blender.


Genius Hour

Today we will hear from:

  • Yerin, & Toni Ann from the 11:15 section
  • Parker, Michael, & Ari from the 12:20 section

Communicate with videos

The project description has been updated for the first video.

I will be assisting you in solving technical issues.

Preparing for Friday

  • The discussion on BYOD/technology integration closes tonight. Make sure you have posted as least three responses to your classmates.
  • Friday will be the 2nd work day on the current video making project. Since it’s an individual project, I’m considering making class meeting optional.
    • Use the time to record your voice-over. There’s usually too much noise in the class.
  • As always, if you have questions or concerns about this course, talk to me before you leave, or send me an email at lh81655@uga.edu.
