CCSD Bright Spot: 5th Graders Create YouTube Style How-To Videos Using WeVideo

When Technology Teacher Jen Sevy from Fox Hollow Elementary kept hearing her 5th grade students explain how they learned to do things they weren't sure how to do she kept hearing the same answer: YouTube! Apparently, when students are at home and want to learn how to make slime or win at a video game, they look it up. 

This gave her the idea to have her students become the creators of YouTube style videos to teach each other how to do something to show their expertise in a creative way. Mrs. Sevy took advantage of some of our district's WeVideo licenses, and had students use the green-screen feature to make their videos come alive. Check out the video below to learn more and hear from students about the process:
