Creating tutorial videos in 7th grade media studies

In our Media Studies curriculum this year, grade 7 students will produce a tutorial video. Tutorial and how-to videos are becoming an important educational tool, because they teach students to solve problems using research skills and by working independently. At the end of the Media Studies rotation, students use a complex set of skills and knowledge to create a video that teaches another student how to learn a skill or create a product. Here is an example of an excellent tutorial made by last year’s media students.
