Great job explaining how facebook can be an instructional tool. Informing teachers how to create a facebook group was great information as an avid facebook user, like myself, can forget how to do these great aspects of facebook. The video was very entertaining while extremely informative. Maybe you both could explain how to incorporate other facebook aspects (i.e., chat, friend requests, events, messages, apps, as well as many others) into the classroom environment.
I liked how you addressed the issue of integrating social networks into the classroom. Since social networks are unarguably a massive part of students' lives, having the classroom adapt to this would undoubtedly influence a learner's academic experience. That said, I feel that the negative aspects of facebook use were overlooked.
The concepts/ideas were original and useful, but I felt like your explanations tended to ramble. The use of music and graphics did add to it, but the intro was overly elongated.
I really liked this video! I thought the video was captivating and informative. They clearly answered all the questions in an interesting yet informative manner. They kept their content interesting by keeping music behind most of their commentary. I also liked their descriptions and different examples. I thought they did great job!
-the EXCELLENT use of media and video editing software. It really grabbed my attention.
-You delivered the content in a seemingly perfect way through the use of the software.
-my overall impression of the video was more like a commercial for facebook than a comprehensive overview of its potentially useful features.
-Could have spent more time in the video looking at more in-depth features of facebook, such as the 'ask a question' post function in the group page.
Your video was definitely fun to watch. Your list of pros was very extensive and convincing, but I wish you would have gone over possible cons of teachers using facebook as a tool. I thought it was very helpful that you showed exactly how to create a group and what you can do once you start one.
I thought this was really creative! The transitions were great. The information was also explained clearly. You went over the different uses but I would like how those uses can be done to be explained...but there's only so much time in a video. Also I know almost everyone has a facebook page now, but there are still a lot of people who don't, so I wouldn't assume that every student that comes in contact with it automatically knows how it works.
I like how the transitions from screen shots to recorded video seemed seamless and I like the choice of images to enhance the content. I think that this video can be improved by explaining more details on how a Facebook group can be used to facilitate education, and I would have liked to see examples of how Facebook can be used ieffectively in the classroom.
The video was very well done. I also like the idea of using facebook in the classroom. It is so true most everyone uses facebook in someway, so why not incorporate it into the classroom. The idea of using the group for educational purposes never crossed my mind, so good job on that.
Your introduction was really funny, and I liked your choice of background music. Your transitions between sections were also very good, and the overall tone of the video was both professional and entertaining. It would have been nice to see a demo of the facebook chat function, but I can see how that might have been difficult to do. It may also have been nice to highlight other facebook group functions, such as event postings.
First of all, the introduction was hilarious!!! I never really thought about using Facebook in the classroom but I can definitely see how it could work. I really liked the idea of using the group element in creating an online discussion for the class. I am a little concerned about the fb video chat concept that. I understand that it might be useful for tutoring but I don't really agree with the long distance teaching via video chat. Overall, good information =)
The beginning of the video was quite entertaining! I really enjoyed the thorough explanation of how Facebook can be used for more than just social media/personal use. It really is a great tool to use inside the classroom. I've had experience with teachers using Facebook and it worked out great. While others have commented about the negative side of teachers using Facebook, I know that there are privacy settings that can give the students and teachers the privacy they want while still interacting via Facebook. Maybe you could elaborate on that a bit more? Great job overall!
I like the fact that you point out that students are already using facebook so teachers should take advantage of their knowledge of the site. Also, the video was entertaining while chock full of information. The tutorial on how to create a group on facebook was good, but my suggestion would be to give a little more information, perhaps show how to post a link to an outside source. Also, a change in pitch in your voice would have been nice.
Overall, it was a very well put together video. I really like that you used the idea of Facebook, since it is something that everybody is familiar with, and knows how to use. I also really liked how you made this video funny, and entertaining while also acknowledging Facebook's potential use in a classroom. The video itself was very engaging, but it may be even more engaging if your physical actions were more exciting, and animated. Using more animation in your body language and voice can help the viewer become more excited as well.
Your opening hooked me to want to watch more. It was very funny. I never thought of Facebook being used by teachers within the classroom. It was very interesting.
The beginning of your video was seriously HILARIOUS. I loved it. Great job grabbing the attention of the viewer. I loved your use of images and you really made the voiceovers interactive. The only thing that I think could have made it better was to expand upon the downside to using Facebook interaction for teachers to students (inappropriate things on the web, the legality of friend requesting students, etc) Great job!!
I like how you used music and images to make your video more exciting. I also liked your description of how group and video chat functions can augment classroom learning. Something to add would be a tutorial of how to use the group chat function. Also could have mentioned why groups are benefical such as group projects and finding out homework assignments.
I was really impressed with the hook at the beginning and I like how you incorporated pictures and references to popular media. I thought the music was fun but the transitions between the video and the music portion could have been more smooth. I also think that specific examples of times when a teacher could use the group function would be helpful.
I like the idea of using the facebook group application for students to work on group projects with one another, as well as that you took the time to explain how to use it. I think on aspect that you could have added is the event part where teachers could add when major projects are due or big class events where people can collaborate on what they will bring for that particular event.
