This resource, Kids’ Vid, has been around for a while, but it’s worth revisiting. For the last couple of days I’ve been talking about blogging and students sharing their work with a wider audience, but what I haven’t talked about is how to make their work a product that a wider audience will want to view. Sharing user generated video grows in popularity every day and your students want to be a part of it. Kids’ Vid provides great information and ideas about how students can make their video into something that others will want to see and that your students can be proud of. Kids’ Vid provides tips on lighting, sound, sequencing, scripting, and more.
Applications for Educators
Kids’ Vid provides a nice list of teaching ideas and methods for incorporating video production into the classroom. The methods and ideas presented on the teachers’ page of Kids’ Vid are appropriate for any content area above the third grade (8 years-old) level.
