1. My videos have to be short, real short. I mean 3-5 minutes short. Closer to 3 minutes.
2. My videos must be straight to the point. I am almost taking notes for them. I actually say "Step 1...., Step 2...." and "write this down"( Now that I think about it, I probably should have said that all along).
3. I remind them to write the date, title, and important info. during the video a lot.
4. I also went back to using a graphic organizer and having them glue it into their math notebooks. and finally . . .
5. Crystal, I revised your W-S-Q. "S" now stands for "list the STEPS" instead of summarize. So they W-watch the video (write the title ), S- list the steps, and Q-write 1 question they have.
Here is an example of 1 of my student's notes from a video. I just took a picture of this one because it was an excellent example of what their notes should look like. I know, we still need to work on coming up with a higher level question. :-) I will share some others later.
Oh yea, another big difference . . . for the most part the students are watching the videos in class while I am working with other students. I also use the video after I have done a "quick-teach" (I think I just made that up) or face-to-face preview of what they will learn in the video.
Update: Here are some other examples of WSQ notes:
Pretty good, huh?:-)
