How can teachers of English or Literature draw on the power of technology to help students become better readers and writers? With so many apps and software options out there, how can teachers sift through everything to find the most effective tools? Well, we’ve done the hard work for you!

Computers, tablets, and smartphones have made video creation easy, fast, and often free. How can this powerful tool be drawn on in the classroom? We will focus specifically on using video for assessment purposes. We will experiment with video-making and editing tools for various platforms that can help students and teachers create simple videos. Then, we will check out some examples of how they can be used for ongoing formative assessment with feedback, self-evaluation, peer-evaluation, and final projects. Participants will leave the workshop comfortable working with at least one video creation tool they can then pass on to their students.

The cost for this workshop is $54. If you teach at a Jewish day school within the five boroughs of NYC, please contact digitaljlearning@JewishEdProject.org for a discount code to attend the workshop for free.
