EDDL 5131

Outline Student Video Activities (EDDL 5131, Week 10&11, Activity 7)

Short individual Video Activity:
1. Science 9, Biology Unit, Grade 9

2. Students will be able to demonstrate the processes of Mitosis in asexual reproduction. The student can produce a creative video demonstrating the processes of Mitosis (Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, andTelophase). They can use stop motion video, props, acting, drawings, etc. Students should not be just talking in the video (“talking head” video style).

3. Software and hardware:
– Software: Windows 10 (Video editor) and MacOS (iMovie) (Both free)
– Hardware: Individual Mobile device / Classroom provided iPad

Very simple tutorials and “How-To’s” can be posted to help students navigate their preferred software
– Video Editor (https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=video+editor+tutorial)
– iMovie Tutorials (https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=imovie+tutorial)

4. Students will upload their finished videos in a shared Microsoft OneDrive folder, set up by the teacher, accessible to everyone in the class via their school account.

Team of students Video Activity
1. Science 9, Biology Unit, Grade 9

2. Students will be put into groups of 6. Each pair of 2 students will be responsible for creating a review video of one of the three larger topics in a video of 2 – 5 minutes of length. The pair will work together to plan, film, and edit their creative video. Similarly to the short individual video activity, students should not be using the “talking head” video style, but instead, a more creative approach in their filming. Once all three groups have completed their section, they will combine all three videos and will have a whole unit video review of the Biology unit in a 6 – 15 minute video.

Three Large Topics in Biology Unit
– Reproduction & DNA & Advantages/Disadvantages of Asexual and Sexual reproduction.
– Asexual Reproduction
– Sexual Reproduction
