Collaborative Online Video Creation
WeVideo enables engaged learning
Online video projects are a great way to encourage student creativity and storytelling, as well as increase student involvement. Media engages today’s digital native. Video creation projects enable engaged learning and develop 21st century skills.
Video Projects and Common Core Standards
Interdisciplinary teamwork is the nature of complex problem solving. Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a real-world lab where students become producers of knowledge by exploring topics in depth, rather than passive consumers.
WeVideo is all about PBL where students collaborate on creating video projects to build multimedia presentations and thereby addressing Common Core standards. Instead of reading history from a textbook, students can be historians as they make a documentary about an historical event. As they engage in building the documentary, they can construct deep knowledge about the topic.
21st Century Skills
Creativity, Critical thinking, Communication and Collaboration are the 4 C's of 21st century skills. With WeVideo educators can develop these core skills through collaborative video projects. WeVideo opens up a variety of collaborative models:
- teacher initiation of video projects by starting the story
- individual or teamwork
- teacher or team member review during the creation process
- screening of student movies with feedback and reflection from the whole class
Integrate mobile into the learning process
Smartphone cameras are getting better and their accessibility and usability makes it a powerful video recorder. WeVideo supports capturing and creation on-the-go by it’s companion apps for Android and iOS. In this way students can use their favourite gadget to capture videos from a field trip or when portraying their grandparents, make a rough edit on their smartphone and finish the edit on the web when they are home.
Adaptive and inclusive learning environment
WeVideo provide an adaptive video learning environment that is ideal for class projects where students may have a wide disparity of skills. WeVideo comes with three editing modes, from Novice to Advanced. The adaptive interface allows students to move seamlessly between each level, based on their experience and familiarity with video editing. Educators can enable each student to participate at their level, and advance at their own pace.
Private and secure "Walled garden"
There is an increased awareness in education around students' sharing of video content - concerns about safety, privacy, and appropriate content. WeVideo provides a private, secure "walled garden" where default behaviour is that students can only share videos in their private project with teachers and students. Admins can decide to enable public sharing for a smaller group; it can be done on a school, class or individual level.
No hardware. No installation. No Internet. No boundaries
WeVideo decouples video projects from localized technology resources like hardware and software. This makes video creation projects accessible, so it's possible for educators to use it and knowing that their students’ attention will be on the content.
With WeVideo, students need no longer worry about having access to a single editing computer at school or the correct software installed at home. With our latest initiative, WeVideo Next, students can start editing videos with material on their local computer, without even being connected to the Internet.
For just $149.00 per semester (or $249.00 for an entire year), up to 50 students can get started with WeVideo. Looking to expand the use of video beyond the classroom? No problem! Volume license pricing is available for multi-class, school or district subscriptions, too, at lower costs per student based upon increased volume.
