I liked this video. I didn't know much about PLE's in general in education before this and now I do. Your images were well aligned with your points and you addressed issues with PLEs that wouldn't be thought of on the first take.
The volume was low, but once I got used to it I liked the information. I liked how the graphics correlated to the information that was being conveyed. Maybe a demonstration of a PLE would have been in order, but otherwise, good stuff.
I really enjoyed the video and learned a good amount about PLE's. I thing the best thing about the video is that it connected PLE's to differentiated learning environments, makeing them very appealing for teachers. The biggest negative I noticed was that it was difficult to hear you on the video, but once I moved to a quieter environment that wasn't a problem.
It was a little hard to hear some of the information. However, it was very interesting while still answering all of the questions and informing us about personal learning environments.
-how you used the video editing program to deliver a lot of fun and relevant visuals throughout the presentation.
-How you mentioned differentiation :)
Some things that could be addressed:
-It was pretty difficult to hear (just an editing/hardware issue)
-the visuals, while entertaining, sometimes distracted me from what you were saying in the moment, such as when i was reading the comic dialogues.
I liked your use of comics and interesting images under your voice recording, although I couldn't hear your content very well. I liked that you listed both pros and cons of the PLE.
The volume was very low. With my speakers all the way up I wasn't able to hear it. I will say the pictures help me to understand the general idea though. Not all students learn the same so we can't have the same systems for every student.
I like that you include both the benefits and drawbacks of PLE. This video seems to cover all the pertinent information in a concise manner, and is still interesting. It would have been interesting to see a demonstration of one of the examples that you mentioned. It also might improve the presentation if you include a video clip or something similar.
Wow, this was a great video. I never knew about PLE and now am excited to learn more. This is a great way for students to understand the vast ways in which they can create their environment as well as for a great way for the teacher to still be able to be included and understand the student's learning perspective. Great video, it would be nice if there was a tutorial on how to use PLE to accompany it.
I liked the tone in your voice although you did speak a little fast at times which made it hard to follow. I liked the cartoons that you included in the film, however I would have enjoyed seeing a tutorial included so that I would understand exactly what you're talking about when describing a PLE. I think I am still unclear about what a PLE is.
You guys did a very nice job! I really liked the animation in your voice, and I also really liked the material covered and how you used comic to help you narrate. My only recommendations would be that it may be useful for the viewer to also see your face more in order to feel more connected with what you are saying. Also, I think some sort of instruction in the video would be helpful in terms of how to actually use this tool.
I liked your video because the cartoons were funny. I also liked how you talked about metacognition. I am still a little confusion as to whether this a website or not, and if it would be nice if there was some sort of tutorial about how to use it.
This was very well-done. I didn't know what Personal Learning Environments were, and now I do. I really enjoyed all the comics you had associated with each section you talked about. There was a lot of information, so it would probably have been easier to understand if there was something we could read (like a PowerPoint slide) along with the oral presentation.
I didn't know anything about PLE before this video and felt that it was very informative! The only thing that I think would have helped your video would have been to have a few slides that had the information that you said in the voiceover typed out onto the screen. It was hard for me to try to process the visuals you incorporated while listening to the voiceover.
Your volume was a little low so I had trouble hearing it in the beginning. You also spoke a little fast and it would be more clear if you slowed down slightly. I liked the pictures to go along with what you were talking about to make the video more interesting. I also liked that you were able to condense the information into a short (only 3 min) video teachers would have time to watch.
I like how you included the idea that this technology will allow for differentiated instruction to be implemented into the classroom. One question I have is if everyone that is collaborating on the same thing would have to have the same way to access it (yahoo, gooogle, etc) of if they would still be able to collaborate if they choose the medium that they liked best.
