A while ago we explored the Class OnAir site and provided feedback to the teachers involved. Now it is the MDTA BTs turn to have a go! We had Matt Goodwin come in and give us some helpful tips for creating a class OnAir episode.
My first episode
I chose to create my OnAir episode about Haiku poetry. Over the past four weeks my classroom has thoroughly enjoyed our unit on figurative language, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to see if they could use their learning in a new context - Haiku poetry.
I filmed my lesson this week. The filming is the easy part. To start with it is a little unusual to be filming myself as a teacher. However myself and my learners did relax as time went on. Editing is very time consuming - it is hard to decide which parts are valuable and which can be culled. I have almost finished editing and my Class OnAir site is pretty much completed. Stay tuned to see my very first Class OnAir episode!
