Finally, students are encouraged to share their videos with others in order to receive feedback and comments. Giving students an audience is important in order to give their work a context and a tangible goal.
An essential part of the process is to share the results of the students’ work. It is important for students to receive feedback on their work so as to inform future learning aims. We prefer to ask for feedback from peers, parents and other teachers only.
Explain to the learners that they have to upload the video to an on line video-sharing platform like YouTube or Vimeo. On you tube, they must ensure that their privacy settings are on ‘Private’ or they may get feedback from all directions – some of which may not be helpful. In order to upload the video on to these platforms you will need an account. We suggest using an account created ad hoc for the class. It is worth doing because the account can be used in the future for other projects or activities.
Time needed 1-2 hours.
YouTube (or Vimeo) account.
Hints and tips
You should draw their attention to the privacy settings and copyright. Do they wont to make the video “private” or “public”? Do they want to enable comments? Discuss the pros and cons!
