TEACHERS AND PARENTS:
GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING YOUR TEACHING TIPS VLOG
Before you give your teaching tip, think about your goal for the educational vlog that you will submit. Decide how to best share your teaching suggestion with other teachers and parents.
When you share, be sure to introduce yourself. Describe who you are, what you do, and a bit about yourself. Keep this section very brief.
When submitting your educational teaching tips & recommendations:
We're here to help, and we're grateful that you've chosen The Margaret Byrd Rawson Institute to share your teaching tips & recommendations.
Guidelines for Shooting Your Vlog:
To help you give your teaching tips & suggestion effectively, we have created some simple video shooting guidelines for you to follow:
If you are holding the camera:
If you don't have another person to help you, you may use the selfie mode on your smartphone to take the video. Please keep it in landscape mode. You can then just ask yourself the questions, and we will edit that part out. Come from the heart with your response and be genuine!
If you have someone holding the camera for you:
If possible, have another person hold the camera for you. If you want, the person filming can ask you the questions, interview-style. This style will allow the conversation to flow more naturally than you trying to memorize a script.
If you have more than one teaching tip you want to share:
Please separate into different vlogs. Our goal is to ideally have each video be 2-4 minutes long and focus on a specific teaching tip.
Don't worry about being perfect:
We may edit the video once you send it to us, so it's okay if you have a few pauses, you say "um" a few times, or you want to restart and reflect over again. Speak clearly, loudly, and confidently. Make eye contact with the person interviewing you, not the camera. If you are filming by yourself, just focus on a spot on the wall behind the camera to look at, as if you were looking at a person.
