Lessons in 4K
With the constant stream of high quality videos online, it is easy to be mesmerized by the way people are telling their stories today.  Self-produced content is causing a sea of change in the film and TV industries, but in education we have the tendency to still tell our stories in the same ways that we have for decades.  Jim uncovers the lessons that we can learn from the entertainment industry so we can begin telling the story of our classrooms in passionate and engaging new ways.

YouTube channels and editor
Limited Capacity seats available

YouTube allows billions of people to discover, create, and share originally created videos. YouTube provides a forum for people to connect, inform and inspire others across the globe and acts as a platform for content creators, teachers and advertisers.

As an educator, whether you are considering using videos in your lesson plans, adding historical videos into your social science class, or conducting a video field trip of ancient Roman ruins, YouTube is a great tool for better teaching and learning.


Features and Benefits

YouTube allows you to find videos on many topics from around the world. YouTube EDU is Google’s library of 700,000+ high-quality educational videos from partners like Khan Academy, Stanford and TED-Ed. There are a variety of benefits associated with using YouTube in your class:

  • YouTube engages students through multimedia
  • YouTube EDU videos offer an alternative way to learn new content versus using text-based materials
  • YouTube EDU allows you to quickly discover playlists on topics such as ELA, Math, Science, and Social Science 
  • YouTube allows you to search and filter results (e.g. by video length) to make sure you are getting the best content for your class

To find content that suits your needs, start on the YouTube EDU homepage. Search the content to find videos to support lessons. Create playlists to keep track of videos you want to watch later.

Teachers can also create a channel on YouTube to showcase playlists of favorite videos from across YouTube to introduce or reinforce topics. You can also use your channel to upload videos created by you or your students.

If you have created a channel, you can download the YouTube Creator Studio app to manage your uploads on the go. Creator Studio is a tool that allows you to upload and edit your own videos and manage your channels all from one place. Students can create their own videos to demonstrate their learning while explaining a topic or process. You may also track engagement using YouTube Analytics. 

YouTube in the classroom has privacy controls available through a feature called Safety Mode. This is a setting that helps screen-out potentially objectionable content that you do not want students to see. Google uses community flagging, age restrictions, and other signals, to identify and filter inappropriate content so your students can learn using videos.

With YouTube, you have the freedom to create and customize just the right amount and type of learning material for students to meet their learning goals.

Kahalu'u Manowai Blended/Online Learning
Limited Capacity seats available

Historically, the ahupuaʻa of Kahalu‘u and Keauhou in North Kona were centers of political governance and intellect for many celebrated Hawaiian leaders of the past. They were gathering places for influential kāhuna and ali‘i to train in resource management, political strategy, history, genealogies, spiritual expertise and a myriad of other fields of study.  In modern history, the lands came to be part of the assets within the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estate, who’s mission it is to elevate well-being and  education of Native Hawaiians. The rich history and sites at Keauhou and Kahaluu have become guiding foundations for an emerging online blended aina-based educational program for the Kamehameha Schools West Hawai’i Region.  Currently a website is being created to house information such as the history of the wahi pana in the region, the influential residents, the data collection of 1949 – 50 by Henry Kekahuna, the recent restoration efforts, the ceremonies and chants, and the daily weather and lunar phases. Learners will also be able to track live webcam information from two stations. One station is situated on a ma uka property and another is situated on a ma kai property. Both will track the wind speed, humidity, precipitation, temperature as well as live observations via the webcam. Learners are able to make daily, weekly and monthly weather comparisons. The goal is to offer a dynamic learning platform rooted in Hawaiian place and moolelo that is also tied to academic curriculum and that leverages modern technology.  These two sites are our “R&D sites”, and we have a larger vision of dozens of hybrid aina/online-learning stations planned throughout West Hawaii.

With interactive images you can include text, other images, and videos in the image. With interactive videos you can include text and images or even create multiple choice quizzes and “choose your own adventure” style videos. Interactive images and videos are also a great way for students to create their own learning presentations.
