I have used videos of different phonics and math skills regularly on my classroom blog for a couple of years now, but have not explored having my own channel to any degree.
This week, I had a few short videos of our class that I wanted to share on the blog and through a bit of trial and error in posting, I found that it was easiest to upload them onto my channel and then embed them into Blogger. I like the ability to set the privacy of these videos to unlisted, as it isn’t my intention to share them beyond our classroom blog audience at this point. However, I can definitely see a purpose at some point in posting videos for a wider community, in order to communicate and get involved in educational pursuits and communities.
I have always posted a ton of pictures on my blog but my goal at this point is to add more video as well. I feel like having my own channel will be a great way to do this and to keep my content organized. I’m excited to continue to explore this tool.
