I’m writing this quick post while sitting in Mrs. Miller´s AVID class watching as students showcase the videos they produced using WeVideo. Amazing ECVHS AVID teachers Mrs. Miller and Mr. Millican are preparing their students to write University of California Personal Statements by having them create personal statement videos this semester. I’ve had the pleasure of viewing many student videos in which students communicate their hopes, dreams, and experiences. I am inspired by the young people at my school who have allowed themselves to be vulnerable enough to share themselves.
In addition to WeVideo in AVID, I’ve seen Mrs. Jones have students create Adobe Spark videos for a cultural project and Ms. Goodin and Mr. Enerva have students share research findings through Adobe Spark videos. I love that students are getting practice communicating ideas through videos!
