Get On The Vine

What is Vine?
Vine is a mobile app owned by Twitter that enables its users to create and post short looping video clips. Video clips created with Vine have a maximum clip length of six seconds and can be shared to Vine’s social network, or to other services such as Twitter and Facebook. Vine enables users to record short video clips, up to six seconds long while recording, through its in-app camera. The camera records only while the screen is being touched, enabling users to edit on the fly or create stop motion effects.
Some of the ways I’ve used Vine
Share what your students are learning and experiencing in class
Students enjoying activities using fun equipment like the Omnikin ball
Highlight the experiences students have during field trips
Demonstrate my students using an iPad to learn skeletal bones
How we set-up our archery unit
Gr 8’s using the app Ubersense to analyze basketball form shooting
Students using glogster and comic life to create substance use and abuse information posters
Students using website to learn about binge drinking and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.
Students writing their quiz online using testmoz.com
Learning the names and locations of muscles using BBC website
Hashtags can be used on vine to group together similar vines. A great hashtag for science teachers is #6secscience. It is a collection of educators and students demonstrating science experiments.
