“Welcome to my channel!” and welcome to YouTube for Teens. In this class, students will learn to create, responsibly manage, and post media content to their own Youtube channel. YouTube is an accessible media platform that has garnered world-wide media attention with stars like Tyler Oakley, Hannah Hart, iisuperwomanii and MirandaSings. Led by Monica Ogden, actor, improviser, and content creator of “Fistful of Feminism” on YouTube, students will learn to navigate YouTube, harness their unique creativity, and make videos ranging from vlogs, parody, musical covers, activism, lip dubs, viral videos and more. With discussions on YouTube culture/community, online ethics, and critical media analysis, students will participate in an immersive learning experience focused on awareness, safety and responsibility.
What you need: any camera or iphone, access to simple editing software (i-movie, final cut pro).
By the end of term, students will have participated in the creation of their own personalized channels. Favourite videos to be selected for our final presentation date.
