Mr. Riedl's YouTube channel updates

For those of you who don't know, yes, I have my own teacher YouTube channel. I have two exciting updates to share as I learn more about technology and how to best share educational resources with students, families, and educators.

First, my most recent video is a clip of my son, showing how, over the summer, he has been learning to catch. He is currently 2.5 years old and is experiencing the successes and failures of learning. In this video, as he catches a variety of different types of balls, I see him sometimes want to give up. However, even though learning can be difficult, it helps to receive encouragement and keep pressing on. And there can even be humorous moments in between, like you'll see in the video... :-) The newest feature that I have included in this video is the "outro" at the end of the video. This took quite a bit of work to figure out how to create the mini video clips, the annotations, and piecing it together to look relatively fluid.

Second, a new feature I included on my YouTube channel is utilizing playlists. A playlist is a collection of videos that have something in common. As you can see in the image here, I have made playlists for different subjects (i.e., Science, Math, Social Studies, etc.). When I find a new video that I would recommend to others and likely show my students if it pertains to what we are learning in class, then I'll add it to one of the appropriate playlists (as well as the videos page on my website). If you subscribe to my channel, then you will be updated whenever I add a new video!

Please consider subscribing! I would love feedback as well as other video recommendations. My students know that I absolutely love videos, and I definitely look forward to learning more about how to be creative visually in the classroom.
