    Nice! I've never made a vlog before, but I always wanted to. I looked at your #4 on classroom management. I am really impressed by how you speak. You are clear, nice pace, and easy to listen to. How to you avoid the "umm" and "ah"s? I always do that when I make a video!

    I have this dream of flipping my classes to some extent. I have made a few videos. I guess I just need to jump in. Keep up the good work!

    As someone who has already gone down the slipped classroom road, and lessened it immensely, it does have it's uses. I realized I was falling into the common trap of lecturing through a video. A pretty terrible way to teach. I find it very effective with math, though you don't have to make your own videos because tons exist. I made my own for math for specific modeling from Math in Focus (bar models).

    I was irritated when my former super said it should be one tool in my bag, but ultimately she was right. In that one specific instance lol.

    I went and took a look. Granted I don't typically sit and watch vlogs, but it seems like yours are really long. I have found when I make PD videos, they always get watched if they are under 2 minutes, and mostly get watched when under 5 minutes. Anything over 10 and no one is watching, maybe some skipping around if you're lucky.

    Good luck with the vlogging!

    Thanks for sharing.. like it. But yes, shorter, bite-sized clips at best 10 minutes will be ideal :thumbs::thumbs:

    I think your content is great. In addition to the length, the only other thing that might help to change it up would be to not just have the camera on you the whole time. If you can somehow work in slides in the background or something like that for part of it summarizing your main ideas, I could see that as being helpful.

    I truthfully couldn't sit thru more than just a few minutes of the few blogs I looked at. Some thoughts:
    You look at your notes a lot. It doesn't seem you are speaking from your heart and experience
    You move A LOT. Forward and back from camera in a rocking motion. It's a bit dizzying and distracting
    The length of the videos is too long
    Granted I didn't watch more than a quick clip of a few, so maybe you change things up a bit, but I found they are very 'talking head' lecture type format. Maybe focus on one or two really helpful tips or strategies per video rather than a 'soup to nuts' approach You might include a few visuals, a tour of your classroom, anchor charts, etc. Maybe some personal anecdotes-you want viewers to connect to YOU.

    All that said, I applaud your motivation to share and help others. Keep it up, you'll work out the kinks!

    One last thought-consider your attire. In the one video you are wearing a white tee which looks like a white undershirt. :D
