Maybe you’ve never thought of yourself as an award winning director. But students will, if you start using YouTube to deliver instruction to them. That’s what Sara Cole, Instructor and Digital Literacy Fellow, Nicole Mannino Johnson, ELL Instructor, and Caitlin Griffiths, Family Literacy Program Manager, at Literacy Pittsburgh did. Now they want to show you how.
Sara, Nicole and Caitlin will share how they created two YouTube channels: Literacy Pittsburgh English Class and Family Literacy Storytime. They will discuss why they decided to use YouTube for instruction, how they shoot and promote the videos, and how they helped their “actors” overcome nervousness. They’ll also reveal how their videos have increased Literacy Pittsburgh’s profile in their community, across the country, and around the world.
