Blooms Taxonomy shows that creating is the highest level of thinking. If students are able to create a tutorial of a concept, they are demonstrating their understanding by using the highest level of thinking. In addition, creating videos allows students to show their thinking to others, whether it be adding a link to their video to an online portfolio to share with parents, or sharing their video with other students who are struggling with the same concept.
Students can use any variety of screencasting methods to create their videos - suggestions are included in this resource.
This resource provides you with detailed suggestions and links to resources. It also includes a planning and evaluating sheet for student videos. Students can use this sheet to brainstorm and plan for each video they create, on any topic. After creating the video, they can use this sheet to evaluate their work and be evaluated by you.
Students can use this sheet to create tutorials on any variety of math, grammar, science, social studies, or literature topics. This can be used with a large variety of grade levels. In my class, I have used it with grades 2 - 5 (UK Years 3 - 6), but it could easily be beneficial with middle school students as well.

The videos make a wonderful addition to student created online portfolios!
