The Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) and edWeb.net have launched the Teacher Video Challenge: Classrooms in the Digital Age, a challenge that asks educators to submit videos featuring their thoughts and opinions on digital resources and classroom technology. These same videos will be presented to publishers at the upcoming Content in Context Conference put on by AEP.
Educators are asked to create videos, upload them to YouTube, then submit their videos on edWeb.net with a blog post including a link to the video. By using this online submission process, educators are using the social media platforms that encourage the use of 21st century communication tools.
Three questions must be answered within the video:
1. What are you most in need of in order to teach effectively in the digital age?
2. What one request would you make of those who create instructional materials to make them digital-classroom friendly?
3. How would better digital technology and content in the classroom help you and your students?
The deadline for posting videos is May 7, 2010. AEP will select a number of videos to be showcased in a session at the conference. Educators who created the selected videos will receive a Flip Video Camcorder as a thank you for participating. In addition, all submissions will be archived on both edWeb and AEP's YouTube channel.
