I’m preparing some resources for a Scratch Scheme of Work for Year 7. The one I made last year was OK, but a bit uninspiring and I’d like to be able to have non-specialists walking through it without too much hassle.
I’ve been a bit brave and gone for a narrated video tutorial. I’m not 100% certain that this is the best way but I’m sure the students get sick of PDFs, handouts and chalk & talk so here goes.
My questions (and of course there are always some) are:
- Will the inclusion of me in the video stream a) add some more visual cues/realism or b) cause much giggling distraction and general silliness?
- Is a video introduction suitable for a 3 minute video to show on a whiteboard for situations where headphones aren’t available?
- Should I go back to one of my other methods?
- Is my haircut better than it was on the last video I shoved up here?
Addendum: I know I forgot to put a title on the page, so you don’t need to tell me that 😀
