Hello lovely people !!
So.. my resolution to begin making video diaries has turned out to be a lot harder than I thought. I’ve been crazy busy this week !! With uni and work and organising a new foster puppy ❤ and having family come to stay I have not stopped – which is why this video is going up on Monday not Sunday as promised. But I got it done!!
Have a beautiful week everyone!!
So during my professional experience over the last month I was writing daily reflections and also reflecting after each lesson I taught and it was getting to the point that I couldn’t even remember what I was reflecting on anymore (#sleepdeprivedstudentteacherlife). So to save time I decided that instead of writing my reflections I would use my phone and record a quick clip of myself.
This is the best idea I’ve ever had because (a) I saved a butt load of time and (b) I was able to record myself straight away in the moment so my reflections were a lot more genuine than their original written counterparts.
I really enjoyed looking back over my past video diaries so I have decided to continue to create video reflections throughout my last year as a student teacher so that in years to come when I am an experienced teacher I can look back and see how far I’ve come.
I created a youtube channel (because I can’t afford to pay for the fancy WordPress account where you can embed your own videos #brokestudentlife) to upload my videos and will create a blog post to accompany each video every week.
As always any advice or feedback you wish to give would be massively appreciated (especially considering my camera skills are far from great).
I hope you enjoy watching my reflections as much as I enjoyed making them ❤
Have a beautiful day!!
