I liked the concept of the video because the teachers were examples of 'gamification'. The music and audio was interesting to watch. The transitions were very well done and fun to watch. however the narration sometimes fell flat. One person was more enthusiastic while the other seemed to have trouble during their dialogue.
I loved the introduction to this video and the song. The transitions were also great, and it was colorful and easy to follow. The criticism I have include that Jessica's speaking was a little fast, and there was a variation in the volumes during different takes. Overall great video! Fun to watch!
Awesome 5x7. I liked the narrative of the video because it was told like a story. The 5x7 was clear and easy to understand. And it kept my attention the entire time of the video. The only criticisms I have are that there were no examples of the games that teachers may use, the competitiveness may make it hard for shy students to participate and how would teachers evaluate what they students have learned from gamification.
This was an entertaining, academically inclined video and I loved how it kept with the narrative throughout. Sometimes, though, there would be too lengthy of pauses between each "skit" and the sound effects would sometimes be seemingly cut off, even though I understand it was only meant to be played for a few seconds.
I thought the video was really playful and fun to listen to. I liked the use of the different pictures and sound effects throughout the video. I thought the definition of gamification was a little confusing. The transition at the begining and some of the slides were a little cut off but overall great job!
I really enjoyed the narrative of the video. It was very entertaining. It was very unique and kept me interested. I thought that the music that was used fit well within the video., though they were mostly cut off aburptly in the video. I think that the focus should have been more on how gamification is used through technology in the classroom instead of the concept of gamification. The copyrights should be at the end of the video instead of in the video info so we don't have to go looking around for it and you need to be specific about where you obtain the music or images.
I thought you guys did an awesome job! I loved the story you added to the video and felt the music matched perfectly. You really made the tutorial interactive and relatable to students who interact with teachers everyday. I felt the images you included were relevant and visually stimulating.
I felt music could have been added to speaking parts to add more of an entertaining quality. I also felt the transitions between the different sound elements used within the video could have been a bit smoother.
I thought this video was very interesting :-) I definitely liked the graphics an the storytelling of the video. The video was very engaging. Two things I would suggest is to slow down the speaking of Jessica's part and also the transition with the different speakers could have been a lot more smoother. For example, sometimes phrases were cut off before moving on to the next topic.
I really enjoyed the game show aspect of the video. I found it to be creative and entertaining. The sound effects were also used really well in the video. Two criticisms are that the video did not flow as well as I thought it could between transitions and sometimes the voices got cut off before the phrase was complete. Other then that, it was a very amusing video.
Sorry Everyone, I accidentally deleted my link and along with all of those who had commented on my video. For all those who have already commented, i think your comment may be saved so try and see if you could just repost it. If not, then no blame is upon you and I would testify that you had already commented on my video. Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience.
I really liked how you used the story throughout your whole presentation. I also think you did a great job with your visual transitions and sound effects. At some points, the sound transitions were a little off. At some points thought it was a little hard to follow some of the points you made. But I think you guys did a great job!
Good job guys! I thought your idea was cute and creative. I loved how you incorporated the whole game aspect into your script and really liked how you included cartoons to tell your story. At times I felt the panning was a bit too slow and wording on the slides would be cut off. Additionally, the sound clips seemed to be cut off as well. I also felt that sometimes it sounded too much like you were reading from a script rather than conversing with the audience. Otherwise I appreciate the creativity you put into your project and liked the fact that you had a skit rather than simply reading out the 5 points.
I thought this was a very fun and creative video. I really enjoyed the use of animation and media to keep the video interesting. The transitions were visually stimulating, but not over confusing. While the video was by not perfectly seamless, and had some room for improvement, it was over all very well done. I would have enjoyed video more if the speech component could have been a little slower, or at least more interactive.
I like the storytelling aspect of the video. It was really interesting. Also, how you transitioned between frames was excellent. The only thing I would change is how the voice overs were blended because at times they are a little harsh (but that's me being nit picky). Also, I wish you had more real world examples of how this technology fit into the classroom.
i commented days ago, but for some reason it did not show up. i thought this video was very unique compared to other videos i seen. i like the boxing them of having "rounds", it made the transitions very interesting. i would suggest to slow down the pace of the narration and to try to speed up the effects of movement of images, because some of the images although pertinent, took a while to transition.
