The Seven Minute Scientist

The Seven Minute Scientist is my website dedicated to online learning for both students and educators in STEM. For students, I am designing seven minute (or less) videos for use in their science classroom. I've been doing this through editing my hour long course lectures into seven minute chunks. I've developed my YouTube channel to meet the needs of my students - they can watch my videos from their phones, and stay connected to me. My students love this - they watch the parts they missed, or re-watch things they found difficult. For educators, I've been talking about how I do my videos, and connect with my students via online and digital tools. I think one of the greatest resources as an educator is hearing how other teachers do it - step by step, and through stories and sharing. I'm a huge advocate of PLNs (professional learning networks) and love connecting with other educators.
