What is the connection to your innovation plan or initiative?

This article discusses how educators can use video-based announcements in a K-12 learning environment to support student engagement and motivation. This article also focuses on how ePortfolios can be used to document students' learning progress from video-based announcements. We look to engage students more fully during morning announcements by examining the advantages that video-based learning provides students when creating an ePortfolio.

How can this information help others?

The information in this article can be helpful to others by providing educators with methods for integrating video-based announcements into student ePortfolios to enhance learning. Eportfolios can provide a way for teachers to collect and share student work and to receive feedback from other educators. Teachers can also use videos to model concepts or processes for their students, check for learning, or to create engaging and interactive lessons.

Lessons learned or hoped to learn?

There are several lessons that teachers can learn from an article covering the implementation of video-based morning announcements within student ePortfolios. We hope to show readers that embedding video-based content into an ePortfolio is a great way to provide a more engaging learning platform for students than traditional audio-based announcements.
