Viral Video 101 for Educators

I have done some cleanup work on the Teaching Hacks Wiki (my other brain dump area). In particular, I wanted to reorganize the workshops into a separate area.

Something that has peaked my interest over the last few days is how to integrate viral videos into lessons that relate to the Ontario – Language Arts- Media Literacy strand in the intermediate division. The videos would be a great attention grabber, it fits the curriculum really well, and the reflection process would be quite a bit of fun too.

I just started a collecting ideas that I have titled Viral Video 101 for Educators. What I would like to do is deconstruct these videos, analyze its components, and then have students reflect on other viral videos that they have seen before and are willing to share.

I am no viral video expert and most of the video deconstruction resources that I have found relate to advertising, which may not necessarily relate to viral videos, so any feedback would be much appreciated. I (heart) learning!

Share and Enjoy -

    “piqued,” not “peaked”; “their,” not “its”

    Yes! Viral videos in the classroom can be very powerful. My students introduced me to Charlie the Unicorn which became an impromptu lesson before school one day. I took the chance to show the group of kids about Snopes urban legends site.

    I like the way you’ve organized several mini lessons on the wiki using viral videos.

    I would add the Dove Evolution video which can be a mini lesson about beauty and self-image.
