As everyone looks toward the testing season, remember the key role of creativity in making lasting meaningful memories tied to content for our learners. Being able to tie facts (semantic memory) to those more personal connections (episodic memory) will increase learners chance of remembering content for the long haul and make it more meaningful.
Clips is a new app that allows you and learners to create short and just-in-time videos that can be used standalone or as part of a larger project. We all know that creating is the peak of Blooms Taxonomy, with Clips learners are creating while having to reflect, summarize, analyze and evaluate information that they learned in class. One of the best parts, it’s really simple! Open the app, point the camera, shot your video; with the click of a button you can add closed captions that are created just by you taking the video. Clips is a great way to augment or modify (SAMR) your summarizing strategy for a lesson or assignment.
