Quick & Powerful Video Projects - A Wednesday Webinar

When I was a middle school student (decades ago now) my classmates and I made some videos about the countries that we were studying in our geography class. Those projects took us weeks to complete because our video creation tools were limited to the one video camera that we had to use. Today, that same project could be completed in a class meeting or two. In my first Wednesday Webinar, Quick & Powerful Video Projects, you will learn how to plan a video project that your students can complete in a class or two.

In Quick & Powerful Video Projects, this Wednesday at 4pm EST, you will receive ideas and instruction on how you can engage your students in video creation projects. You don't need any special software to complete the projects that we'll look at in this webinar. Registration is open now.

Five things you will learn in this webinar:
1. How to plan a video project that will engage your students.
2. How to safely share videos in K-12 environments.
3. Discover and use public domain and Creative Common licensed media.
4. How to build a classroom media gallery.
5. Ideas for assessing students’ videos.

Registration for my Wednesday Webinars is $20 each which includes participation in the live webinar, unlimited access to the recording of the live webinar, hand-outs, and a PD certificate.

Register by 9pm EST on Monday and you can save 50% by using the code "cybermonday" at checkout.

This webinar will be available as a recording
If you cannot make it for the live webinar at 4pm on Wednesday, I will send you a recording of the live webinar. 

More Wednesday Webinars
Later this month I will be hosting two more Wednesday Webinars. On December 14th I will host Winning Blog Strategies. And on December 21st I will host YouTube, It's Not Just Cats & Khan Academy. Registration is now open for both webinars. Use the code "cybermonday" to save 50% if you register before 9pm EST today.

Wednesday Webinars - A New Professional Development Series

I teased this earlier in the month, but now I'm ready to officially announce a new series of Practical Ed Tech webinars that I'm calling Wednesday Webinars.

Wednesday Webinars is a series of one-hour webinars designed to give you practical ideas that you can use in your classroom right away.

Each webinar will provide you with five concrete ideas that you can use as your own in your classroom. You will learn how to use the free ed tech tools necessary to conduct each activity by participating in each webinar. Unlike many webinars in which you just sit back and watch, in these webinars you will have an opportunity to participate in hands-on activities as if you were a student in my classroom.

All webinars take place at 4pm EST. If scheduling doesn’t allow you to participate live, don’t worry because every webinar is recorded and emailed to everyone who registers.

The cost for each Wednesday Webinar is $20. But if you register by Monday at 9pm you can save 50% by using the code "cybermonday" at checkout.

Wednesday Webinar topics and dates:

Quick & Powerful Video Projects – November 30, 2016
Winning Blog Strategies – December 14, 2016
YouTube, It’s Not Just Cats & Khan Academy – December 21, 2016

More Wednesday Webinars will be announced in early December.

About the costs and my decision to advertise these opportunities on my blog:
Sometimes when I advertise one of these webinars I get messages from people who are upset that I am advertising it here and or that I am charging for it. I understand why some people feel that way. I thought long and hard about how to offer these opportunities. The purpose of this blog and my goal for years has always been to help people use free technology in their classrooms. The tools and strategies featured in my webinars and at the Practical Ed Tech Summer Camp are free to use. However, my time for teaching isn't free. Further, I pay licensing fees to GoToTraining and to Wistia for hosting all of the media content of the courses.
