I was honored to speak at the California League of Middle and High School’s annual RTI and Technology Conference this Friday. Below is screncast of my presentation recorded using Screenflow. WARNING: this video/presentation is EXTREMELY janky! The internet connection was very poor/no-interent, and thus, many examples and demonstrations did not happen. Either way, I had a blast and the participants were awesome and challenged me with fabulous questions.
Because the video is long, I recommend clicking the: button on the bottom right of the embedded video below to watch it directly on vimeo’s site. You can also click here. You will notice chapter markers below the video that look like this:
Chapter markers can only be seen when viewing the video directly on the vimeo website (Dear Vimeo, Please add this feature to embedded videos as well. Sincerely, Ramsey). By clicking on each blue link, the presentation will be automatically forwarded to that point in the video, without reloading a page. Traditionally, I encourage teachers to make very short videos for their students, that introduce or reinforce basic concepts needed for in class application. However, from time-to-time, it is appropriate to create a long video for students that, for example, provides an interactive key to a final exam, or provides a systematic review of all material in preparation for an end of the year exam (AP, etc.). Using chapter markers can be a great way to chunk up a long video, and empower students to think metacognitively about what they need the most help with. Below the presentation is a tutorial video on how to make chapter markers in vimeo.
