Write, script and produce a video

Video or audio media can offer students a more developmental and creative process to evidence research and thinking around a subject. The task could be anything from finding out about a particular topic, to undertaking a small practical or research project; and is an opportunity for students to try presenting their work to a different (non-academic) audience.

Students can work alone, but group work provides a more efficient and developmental opportunity: students can specialise in different aspects of the production process (project planning, scripting, filming, editing, etc.). A group approach also helps students to develop a variety of digital, teamworking and presentation skills.

Marking

As with all group projects, marking and feedback is divided between the process and the output. For video/audio output, marking is made easier through the use of a rubric.

Feedback

Feedback will vary depending on how the video/audio is submitted/presented, and may simply be the return of a rubric mark sheet. However, if the video/audio pieces are shown in front of students’ peers, there is opportunity to share the value of feedback to all students by making summarising comments (and inviting peer comments) at the end of the presentations.
