I recently had an opportunity to share some professional development workshops with teachers in Wichita, Kansas. This was a repeated, 2.5 hour BYOD workshop on “Mapping Media to the Common Core,” and I focused primarily on interactive writing (with TodaysMeet) as well as quick-edit videos using YouTube Capture and paper-slide videos. I have a variety of resources relating to Paper Slide Videos on the Narrated Slideshow / Screencast page of Mapping Media. These are two compilations of paper slide videos the teachers created in the workshop in the morning and afternoon, using iPads for recording. I combined the videos and uploaded them to YouTube using the free YouTube Capture app.

Paper slide videos are one of the media products I help teachers learn to create during day 2 of iPad Media Camp. It’s an ideal BYOD media project since it just requires a digital device with video recording capabilities, along with paper and colored markers. As a good assessment should, these videos provide a helpful “window” into where teachers are with their thinking about integrating technology tools into instruction. It can be very challenging to help teachers “think outside of the box” of traditional instructional goals and methods when it comes to technology integration. Several excerpts from these videos would be great to use with the SAMR framework, evaluating the level of technology integration the identified learning tasks highlight. Quite a few are at the “substitution” level.
