Course Overview

Welcome to the WeVideo Certified Educator Course! This course focuses on developing your skills as an educator. In this course, you'll learn how to design and implement media projects and activities to make multimedia creation a regular part of your classroom. Instructional design facilitators and coaches can apply this in their work with teachers as well. 

Why implement media creation in the classroom? 

Educators who make this shift consistently report higher levels of student engagement, an increase in student achievement of learning outcomes and 21st century skills, a more joyful and connected learning community, and an increase in student agency, choice, and voice.

Media projects are also a great way to enhance literacy across content areas as students undergo the same process of reading and writing that contribute to foundational literacy skills, while also learning valuable media literacy and digital literacy skills. Video projects, in particular, support multimodal learning by providing multiple means of expression as students combine auditory, visual, and text elements to communicate information, thus contributing to the success of all learners, including English Language Learners and students with IEPs. Finally, media projects align with best practices in education, such as project-based learning and personalized learning.
