Pre-Production: Before the event
How will you prepare to video record the students?
Now that you’ve decided what the event will look like, get ready to video record the presentations. Using the guidebook for ideas, get everything in order for recording and make sure to test out the conditions before hand. Here are some questions you might ask yourself when preparing:
- Do I need lights? (If the presentation is in a dark assembly hall, then probably!)
- Are there microphones?
- Am I able to capture the audio?
- If the student has visual aids, how will I show them?
- Have I tested my camera?
- Do I have enough memory/memory cards?
- Do I have enough battery or a plug?
- Will there be too much background noise?
- (And more, don’t just limit it to these, think of anything that might affect the presentations.)
Going through these all beforehand will make your recording more successful and prevent something from going wrong and having to redo the whole thing!
PRODUCTION: It’s showtime!
Post Production: After the Event
Go back and watch the presentations with your students. What went well with the presentations and the recordings? What could have been improved? How can a student share this information on a resume, college application or job interview? Maybe use EdPuzzle again for reflection purposes.
