Google Teacher Academy NY 2012 Application Video

After spending way too much time making this video (an essential component for my Google Teacher Academy Application), I decided to share my draft here to get some feedback.  What should I do to make it better?


Create an original one minute video on ONE of the following topics: "Motivation and Learning" OR "Classroom Innovation" OR “Positive Change in My Community.” This video is a very important part of your application. We're specifically looking for educators that creatively address one of the specific topics listed above. You do not need to be in the video, but the task is designed to demonstrate your resourcefulness, your commitment, and your unique personality and interests. Please do not submit videos produced for another project or videos created by others. Do not include any copyrighted images, footage, or music. (For more information visit the Copyright Education site on YouTube. - ) We realize that you may not have produced a video before, but we are confident you can find a way to meet this requirement. Once you create the video, you must post it on YouTube for us to view or download, then paste the URL of the video into the field below. Please double check that your URL is valid before posting it here (and be sure your video is public - we will not be able to view or judge a video that is set to private). We will not accept videos by email, and we will not watch more than one minute. So, make it count!

Application Deadline: 11:59 PM PDT (UTC/GMT -7), July 29, 2012
