Video Field Trips & Guest Speakers: April Valdesuso, Marriotts Ridge High School

April Valdesuso is tapping into the plethora of online video sources to assist her English lessons.  She is essentially creating on-demand virtual field trips and guest speakers in an awesome effort to deliver content by a variety of experts!

For example, who better to present and interpret Shakespeare than actors that study and deliver his content as a career?  How many of us are experts in Sunni and Pashtuns groups?  April found an outstanding video of a speaker for her class in preparation for their reading of The Kite Runner.  For her unit on the Anglo-Saxon period in literature, she found a video on YouTube where a professor gives a lecture on the background of the period.

100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute.  This has resulted in awesome opportunities for April to leverage virtual sources to enhance her lessons.
