My big idea is, “Connecting content to empower students”. Students do not feel that what is taught in class is relevant to other disciplines as well as their life. My goal is to encourage more connections within science content and real life.
I was inspired by the videos that have a person drawing. I feel this idea is my creation so I wanted to create the pictures in the video. As I was thinking about this idea I started to sketch. As I was thinking the thought, “Connections Matter”. I then wrote that down and looked for all the ways I could connect the subjects talked about in that phrase. This became my last picture in the video.
I used Movie Maker to create this video. I do not have a tri-pod for my tablet so I had to “repurpose” some items in my basement (see photo). After 3-4 I felt I had the correct video except that I to eliminate the noise from the house and basement (actually created by my husband). I found that if you mute the video and then use the narrate tool in Movie Maker the video sound was eliminated! A work in progress to be sure but the first step was made!
