Create Choose Your Own Adventure Videos

Last summer my colleague at Ed Tech Teacher, Greg Kulowiec, introduced me to creating choose your own adventure videos in YouTube. Back then I posted some annotated screen captures illustrating the process. Today, Greg directed me to a new blog post of his own in which he uses a choose your own adventure video to demonstrate the process. I've embedded the video below, but I encourage you to visit Greg's blog to view and download the flow chart he uses with his students when they create choose your own adventure videos.

Applications for Education
Creating a series of informative videos and linking them together in a choose your own adventure format could be a great collaborative multimedia project for your students. You could also use the process with entertaining  videos that you link up in a Mad Libs-like format.
