Making Video to Build Classroom Community

Online Workshop
View the recording from May 12


Video projects are a powerful way to connect with students and strengthen classroom community whether we are in the same building or learning from a distance. Hear about the impact of a video project in a high school credit recovery English class and start your own video to share with students. You’ll get hands-on experience with Adobe Spark, a basic video creation tool, as well as classroom resources, links to other video tools and connections to further learning with KQED. Video production beginners and experts will leave with something useful for their practice.
