Help wanted – Videos of 21st century classrooms?

Are there videos out there of 21st century classrooms in practice? In other words, has anyone captured what high-level, technology-facilitated pedagogy looks like (or might look like) in action?

If you’ve got a link, please share in the comments area!

    I am from Argentina.

    I am not sure if this is what you are looking for.

    There´s a couple of videos and some pictures…

  2. Scott,

    Here’s a website that documents the story of a year-long history project from a grade 7 classroom in Calgary, Alberta. The project used 21st C skills to have students remix historical artifacts to create their own interpretations of Canadian History.

  3. First thing to realize before clicking: this is an Animoto blurb:

    Animoto is amazing for marketing, but not so hot for real teaching just yet. However, I DID get the e-mail today touting the fact that they have just activated text within the system which should help. But no, not exactly “instructional.”

    I hope the embedded clip there adds a tiny something to your quest. it is certainly no more than a wee sliver. I really… really need to get going on the video scene. If I had a video clip for every amazing lesson I have witnessed as an instructional coach these past three years, I would really have a resource for you!

    Oh well, here’s to great beginnings….

  5. Scott,

    We use ustream, IM, and cell phones to create a mock futures exchange in our econ classroom. Customers call in from all over the world to help place orders and participate in the mock trading. We use a blog site for the intro lessons. The kids have a blast. Technology has certainly helped this project. At the end the students understand price discovery, hedging, speculation and the role of futures markets is risk management. Not too bad for a group of 18 year olds.

  6. Scott,
    We have been trying to document what a 21st century 1:1 classroom looks like and here is a video that was produced in my classroom. Hope it is helpful. There are other videos on the site as a whole.

    My teaching partner and I have been involved bringing various types of technology into our classrooms. Above is a link with a short video our board made last year or our classes at work.

  8. The California High Speed Network hosts a selection of videos, including student-created work and video “news stories” about promising practices.

  9. Hi Scott,

    Here is a video I created to spotlight how technology has become infused with our PE (now called Wellness/Health) curriculum.

    The focus is on the use of our new SportWall.

    Here’s the link:

    Hope this helps…


  10. Hi Scott,
    The link below is to a video about some of the work we do at Lewis Elementary…

  11. Scott,

    Just finished this project for Connectivism course. My son, Alex, helped out. The video represents a project I’m currently doing with my Contemporary Issues students.

    I would be thrilled and honored to have you share this with as many administrators who will listen.
