More than video creation
Deeper learning comes from true engagement, and video creation requires engagement at every step! From crafting narratives to filming and editing, students actively construct meaning via higher-order thinking.
Students who create videos develop critical communication skills that will serve them beyond graduation as they move onto higher education and embark on professional careers.
In the process of making videos, students have to think creatively about problems and propose their own solutions. Creativity is an important skill itself but also serves to enhance learning at every age.
Videos aren’t just for fun! Students of all grade levels are encouraged to build and demonstrate critical thinking through data analysis, reasoning, and interpretation.
Here’s a benefit that any teacher can attest to: students love videos. Multimedia projects significantly increase student motivation and engagement in the learning process.
No surprise here: video creation helps students increase competency in technology, which is an essential skill for the current generation of learners.
Authentic over artificial. Engage students in learning that is both meaningful to them and mirrors the world outside the classroom. By creating videos and other media, students see how their work impacts their life and those around them.
Communication over consumption. Rather than passively consuming media, we believe in actively creating it. We provide tools for students to communicate in effective and compelling ways through video.
Progress over perfection. Students are more than a score. Multimedia creation naturally supports ongoing discovery, reflection and growth. We believe in supporting students in their learning and growth from beginning to end.
Impact over invisibility. WeVideo is on a mission to empower students to discover their voice and make an impact in the world. To fully support student voice, we must develop the right conditions in which their voice is heard and recognized.
