From Pre-Write to Final Edit

New to video making?  This set of short videos will walk you through each step of the process.


Project Planning - Calendar

 You know the date the project is due, but how can you build a schedule and share it with members of your group to make sure the work is done on time?  Use Google Calendar.  It's available via your school login and can easily be shared with all members in your group.  The free app works well on Android and Apple devices.




Dividing a project into tasks and reaching consensus on who will do what is an effective way to complete your project by its due date.

Reflect on Your Progress

Take the five minutes before the end of your worktime to evaluate your efforts for the day and make a plan on what you'll do the next time you work on the project.

Group Reflection and Goals - Use this at the end of your work session to assess how well the group is doing and what you need to next.

Individual Reflection and Goals - Use this at the end of your work session to assess how well you're doing and what you need to do the next.

Final Assessment

Almost ready to turn in your video?  Take some time to do a thorough assessment of it and make some adjustments before you hand it in. This may be similar to the assessment your teacher will use.
