We’re excited to introduce a collaborative project that kicks off with a special presentation from Dr. Scott McLeod, co-creator of the “Did You Know?” videos. Viral videos, like the “Did You Know” videos, can be very powerful when it comes to spreading a message or sharing information. Why is this the case? Can these types of videos be used in the classroom? We’re going to take a closer look and see what we can find. Intrigued? We’ve put together an outline of 5 week project centered around the “Did You Know” videos that will included plenty of discussion, exploring, collaboration, and learning. We have Team Leaders from the DEN Leadership Council who will be helping with the project. We’d love to have as many DEN members as possible participating and learning with us. Here’s the rough schedule:
Week 1 – September 20th – Kick off interview with Scott McLeod, co-creator of the Did You Know videos. On September 20th at 7 pm ET, you can join us as we hear from Scott about how these videos came to be and what’s happened since the first video was introduced.
Week 2 & 3 – Team Leaders will establish topics of discussion, interested participants will choose the topic(s) they’d like to join, and the discussion will continue via Edmodo. During this time, curriculum connections will be discussed along with any other relevant information.
Week 4 – October 11th – Teams will begin gathering content for final product and determine who will put everything together for their own “Did You Know” video based on their topic.
Week 5 – October 18th – a final live event with Team Leaders and other team members discussing their project and sharing the final product.
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? We think so and we’d love to have you involved. To sign up, fill out the form below.
