Class Experience

Students will identify strategies for overcoming shyness. They will also have an opportunity to develop some confidence through positive feedback on their work. 
I have studied and applied these course topics to my NurseKillam YouTube channel with over 27k subscribers. You may not be able to tell but I was shy when I started. 

My children have also had some fun making a few videos: 
Froggy Fun House: 
Flexible Fun: 
Day 1: Practice a script provided. 
Day 2: Brainstorm strategies to include in their learning plan. 
Google Drive will be used in class. Social media accounts (such as YouTube, TikTok, or Instagram) are not required. I will provide links to websites and YouTube videos that are recommended as optional homework.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Google Drive.
Progress will be assessed in class. Strengths-focused feedback on their presentation will be provided. I will also be available to answer questions before and after class via Outschool messaging. 
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
1) I will show video clips from YouTube in class (both popular videos and student videos). I will screen them before class to make sure they do not contain swears, are not explicit, and are culturally sensitive. I cannot watch all videos on a channel so I cannot guarantee that the entire channel is kid-friendly. Videos will be used for educational purposes. I cannot control if students want to subscribe to those channels after class. 
2) Sometimes students try to get people to subscribe to their channels in sessions about YouTube. Students are not allowed to self-promote their channels. I ask them not to share their YouTube channel name or links. If it happens the chat will be turned off. If they continue to attempt to self-promote I may need to remove them from the class. They are allowed to talk about the kinds of videos they make where it is relevant. Student privacy is important for a comfortable learning environment. 
3) This class does not require that students have a YouTube or other social media account. Your child will need your support and guidance when creating and uploading videos. YouTube requires creators to be age 13 or older to have an account. Many younger children have an account that is opened and monitored by their parents. It is important that their parents are involved in keeping them safe online. From age 13 to 17 children still need guidance and parental permission to use YouTube. For more about supporting a child with a YouTube account please see:
4) All classes will be recorded so anyone who needs to miss a class can watch it at a later time.
