I am so excited about my latest project! I have been thinking (and probably over thinking this) for months, but I continually want to work on how I can provide professional development for many teachers. I recognize that it can be difficult for teachers to go to a variety of conferences throughout the year due to cost and travel. I also recognize that it seems like the world language profession is changing quickly, and it can be hard to catch up.
I have decided to start creating a few videos to help! It is definitely time-consuming… as many of these videos had to be remade because I messed up or a little boy came bursting in to tell me something! My goal for them is that it helps people implement new techniques into their own classes. I also wanted to start to roll some out this summer when teachers have more time to watch them.
Recently, I have been working on two new videos: The first is a free video on how to set up Flipgrid and how to use it in the world language classroom. The second video is on how I integrate IPAs into the novel studies that I do in my classes. I hope that after you watch these, you feel more comfortable to use them in your classes. I wanted to keep them under an hour, so people have time to watch them (and I don’t get too wordy!) However, in both documents, I have shared a linoit link for you to post questions that I can respond to or others can as well!
I would love to hear other videos that you think would be useful! I have a few ideas in the works, but I want input as I continue to work to bring more professional development to more people. To celebrate these videos and the recent IPAs that I have added to my store, I am throwing a sale in my TPT store this weekend. I have put all of my items up for 20% off. As always, thank you for your support as I continue to develop as a teacher and blogger and now… pesudo vlogger!
