Digitial Project Feedback

I just listened to the feedback from my instructor about my digital project. Doug, thanks for your comments they were thoughtful, insightful and helpful.

I never thought about using the video as part of a longer process for students. At one point I talk about a research paper but I just gloss over it because I only had 5 min to do to the whole video. I could have stopped the video and asked the learners to read the paper (or a section of it I highlighted and then think about a few questions) then continued the video with the learners more prepared to receive the information I was presenting to them.

I knew that the project was rushed and not perfect, I actually blogged about that earlier. However in the spirit of getting it done and not being a perfectionist I just did it.

It’s hard for me to not kick myself for not taking more time and doing a better job the first time. However I think it’s more helpful for me to accept that I didn’t do a 10/10 project the first time around and that’s ok. I did a bit of an infomercial (Doug’s words but I agree with him) and then rushed the important part of the lesson.

I have learned something and if I do a video like this again I know that drawing people in is important but needs to be kept short. What’s the point of setting a really good hook if you aren’t going to reel in the fish? If you haven’t seen ‘Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 1 & 2’….you should, they are really good.

This is how I felt about this assignment. PS. The fish is the actually teaching I did in the assignment. The casting was my pizzaz and razzle dazzle.

    Hi Tyler,
    I think you are being too hard on yourself. I enjoyed your video and recall more of yours than others. If you want to call it an infomercial, it certainly was informative. You were willing to take the risk of integrating a variety of technology…just goes to show what you can do with what you know!
