Student Video Announcements


Students at Charter Oak are constantly engaged in technology-rich learning opportunities as they exercise higher-level thinking on a regular basis. The video announcements help build a positive sense of community morale as students, families, and staff all share in conversations about what they see on the announcements. These videos showcase student reporters at all grade levels who interview other students who are living our IB Learner Profiles and Attitudes as role models for each other. They preview and review school events and provide discussion topics to help develop the home/school connection. Parents are encouraged to watch the video announcements at home with their children.


The video announcements also provide many learning opportunities for students to share Action, be inspired by thoughtful quotes and questions, learn about current events, hear from inspirational public figures, and they give an opportunity for students to hone their presentation skills. We make constant connections to literacy with discussions and activities about editing and revising. Together, we work on writing, reading fluency and expression, volume, clarity, as well as non-verbal communication including making eye contact and gesturing. We reflect on challenges and successes and set goals for future recordings. More than anything, the video announcements fill students with pride.
