Teachers' Domain, Learning Through Video Production, published November 6, 2009, retrieved on ,
This media-rich self-paced lesson designed for teacher professional development lets you experience what it's like to go through the video production process so that you can ultimately guide your students through this process. Walk though the typical steps, including research, treatment, scripting, and capturing digital assets. Create a portfolio to track your experience, and keep classroom-planning notes to develop a successful video-production activity for your students. This lesson also features a list of additional resources for further reference.
During this activity, you will learn about and have the opportunity to practice some of the basic steps involved in video production. You will watch videos produced by professionals, and review samples of documents, such as treatments and scripts, that are created as part of the video production process.
At various stages of the activity you will be prompted to take on a number of writing tasks. You may want to use a loose-leaf binder for your notes so that you can separate your notes into the three sections described below, as well as add copies of the printable worksheets and any text you print out from your computer:
You will be asked to record your thoughts on a particular subject, or your responses to questions posed in the activity.
As part of your work on a sample video production that you will experience as part of this activity, you will create working drafts of the types of documents video producers typically create during the pre-production process, such as treatments, scripts, and shot lists. Documents in your portfolio may serve as good examples for your students when they begin their video production activity.
You will be prompted to record your ideas about ways to help your students work on their video production activity, such as creating lists of equipment you would like to acquire or schedules you need to create.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
