One take videos can be used in the classroom in many different ways. Check out this one take music video from the Kennedy High School teachers. It is a lot of fun and incredibly well planned out.
While this idea involves a lot planning and coordination, what if we took the mentality of a Monday Night Football and applied it to our classroom?
Let's say we set up a camera on each group in a science classroom as they worked through a hands-on science lab. Capture the moment on video and then rewatch it after the lesson is finished. People who have participated in sports know that they can learn a lot by rewatching the moment to look for technique, confirm observations, or catch small details that they may have missed the first time around. Will we start to celebrate and give high 5s for excellent lab safety or smart observations? I hope so. Video can be a powerful tool and a one take video is a great place to start exploring how it can impact your classroom.
