So…your year has ended and you have all of these videos from your classroom camera. You have carefully edited them, named them and stored them well. Guess what! You now have your own personal Library of Resources that you can use for years to come.
Here are some ideas for making the most of your LOR:
1. Organize your files by standard – Take some time and create folders for your power standards. These are the things that you know you have to teach again and again. Next year when you get to that standard, you will have video files to use for preteaching, reteaching or flipping your classroom.
2. Edit video to no more than 15 minutes – To get the most of your LOR, you will want quick videos that you could whip out for a substitute, inclement weather day or for the uses mentioned above. Think of what you did in class surrounding the lecture and add online content for a more robust use in your LOR.
3. Share with your colleagues – Meet with your grade level or department and share videos of standards that others teach well. You may not be the best teacher for Pythagorean theorem, but your grade alike math teacher may rock it! Make a trade for a lesson video that you did really well and you have added a collaborative piece to your LOR.
We want to hear from you!
