Project Ed’s mission to build the world’s largest library of high-quality educational videos continues with new resources for using videos in teaching and learning. This week, Project Ed launched two new categories of resources designed specifically to help students and teachers engage with great educational videos and run video projects in their classrooms.

Resources for Educators
In the last year, we’ve heard from educators across the US and Canada about how they use videos and Project Ed in their classrooms. We wanted to make it even easier to use Project Ed’s videos and our contests alongside the common core framework that many teachers are already using. To do so we’ve put together a new set of standards-aligned, student-driven projects and lesson plans for you to use with your students. Resources include videos, student activities, and step-by-step project plans for creating videos in your classroom in a few two class periods!
Resources for Creators
Creating great videos take practice, but we’ve got you covered. We looked back over all the amazing videos we’ve received and compiled a list of tips and tricks you’ll need to create winning videos. We’ve got video guides covering pre-production, shooting, and editing. We’ve even put together a list of all the secrets you’ll need to know to win one of our contests. And if thats not enough, check out our tip sheets on how to harness the power of light and how to shoot a great video using only your phone.
There are always great opportunities for students and teachers to create and win on Project Ed. Check our current contests below. The best videos win $1000 and become part of Project Ed’s open library of educational videos.
