I got the idea to create a "How-to" video library last September when my son was going to his first Bar Mitzvah and didn't want to wear the tie my husband had pre-tied for him. Neither my son nor I knew how to tie a tie so I did a Google search and found several videos. We watched the first one, "How to tie a half-Windsor" and decided that was too difficult for us. The next one, "How to tie a four in hand" seemed easy to follow and we successfully tied the tie. It was that issue that gave me the idea to try it with my school children. The fifth graders will be the first students to contribute to the How-to video library. They were quite excited about the idea as they enjoy creating videos. I introduced the idea by showing some examples of how-to videos found on YouTube , Mathtv and the Khan Academy
After they watched the videos they came up with a list of what they thought made the videos good. Here is that list:
