Class Experience

Learners will learn and create vlogs that showcase their lives, feelings, skills and passions for their own record keeping and for sharing on YouTube (if desired). Learners will learn basic editing skills, workflow and time management techniques to help them create content without allowing the process to be all-consuming. Learners will learn how to balance their content and mix it up in order to hold the attention of their audience. Learners will share their vlogs within the classroom and learn to provide positive and constructive feedback to help each other grow. Learners will have created between 3 and 6 vlogs by the end of the class that they can use for either a digital portfolio or for their YouTube channel.
As a band director for nearly ten years in public school, I have had the opportunity to create a variety of experiences for middle school and early high school learners. I have always been interested in photography and video and when my family had the opportunity to sell our home and buy an RV to tour the country for 2.5 years, I decided to take on the task of creating a family vlog that detailed our travels and daily lives. We shared videos of our adventures on YouTube, our homeschool lives and some how-to's for others along the way. Along the way, we learned a lot about what worked and what did not and I have studied online content creation for our channel through various courses and other YouTubers. I also had the privilege to intern with a social media marketing expert and created content for her various social media platforms while we were traveling. As we transitioned back into a home and stationary lifestyle, I am now changing the content to fit the times and season we are in. I have learned that telling a story and having a plan are two keys to a great vlog. I look forward to seeing you in class and I can't wait to see your talent shine through your vlog!
Learners will be given 3 projects throughout the course where they will be shooting and editing their vlogs. Learners will receive the assignments 1 week in advance and will need to work on them for 1-3 hours outside of class.
Learners will need to have a DSLR, Mirrorless, GoPro or Phone in which to shoot their videos. An external microphone is helpful but not required, except for a DSLR or Mirrorless Camera. They will need to have editing software such as Adobe CC (Adobe Premiere Pro). I use a PC Gaming Laptop to edit mine; however, editing will take a lot of memory on your computer so be aware. If you are shooting videos on a phone, you can often use apps on your phone to edit as well. A homeschool license for Adobe CC can be purchased for much less than their regular price and they are a subscription based, cloud service, so you can subscribe and then cancel if you choose not to use the software after class. Learners will need to have the opportunity to shoot video in multiple locations (home, outside, etc.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will assess their own work as they create their videos and will share their videos with the class as we learn to positively and constructively critique. Learners will also participate in class discussions that will help each other evaluate and tweak their individual content.
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will have the option to create a YouTube channel with parent permission. Learners must be 13 years old in order to create a YouTube account.

About Me

I have always been a teacher and explorer and received my bachelor's degree in music education in 2000. Teaching in the public school system as an accomplished band director for nearly a decade was rewarding; however, I wanted more for myself and...
