Every year, classrooms share their learning stories through RockyTalks, and this year of Learning From Home will be no exception! In June 2020, the RVS YouTube Channel will host presentations from all over the @RockyViewStudio community, from teachers and students in every grade, from every corner of the region and share them publicly in the RockyTalks 2020 Online Exhibition! RVS Teachers can share their YouTube playlists of RockyTalks videos that their students created at HOME, in any subject or format including speeches, essays, position papers, opinions & editorials, learning stories, numeracy/literacy/design, Arts & CTS, creative writing, poetry & spoken word, and more! Follow the Practice Guide to share your students' presentations playlist in the RockyTalks 2020 Exhibition!
Produce Your RockyTalks!
Despite the cancellation of large live gatherings at the end of this school year, there are still ways for us to connect with our parents, students and teachers by creating and sharing our exhibitions and celebrations virtually! Many teachers and entire staffs are creating messages and videos for their learning communities and sharing them on YouTube and social media. It's fun and joyful and wonderfully important to connect with our students.
As the school year approaches summer, schools are going to be creative in how the celebrate and exhibit the learning from the year, especially learning from home! In order for us to design engaging programmes for our communities, we recommend a workflow that invites home-made videos from the community, such as speeches, presentations, addresses, testimonials & performances, then assembling the content into a video programme, and sharing the virtual celebration on school YouTube Channels and social media.

Many in the @RockyViewStudio learning community were disappointed by the cancellation of commencement events this spring, but there are still ways for us to connect with our parents, graduates and teachers by creating and sharing our celebrations virtually!
In order for us to design engaging programmes for our communities, we are forming a Community of Practice to share ideas and workflows to crowd-source videos from the community, such as valedictory addresses, testimonials & performances, to assemble the content into a video programme, and to share the virtual ceremony on school YouTube Channels and social media.
