Collaborative Video Production

Management, Facilitation, and Best Practices


Today’s teachers are charged with not only finding meaningful ways to integrate student use of technology in their classrooms, but also ways to more authentically assess student learning. The advancements in video technology have made classroom video production activities both affordable and feasible.

Collaborative Video Production (CVP) is a method of increasing higher order thinking, engagement, collaboration, and technology through the creation of video. The information provided in this book about the seven-step process of CVP, stems from both field research and practical classroom application. The video production process and the corresponding activities that are described by Joe P. Gaston and Byron Havard have been successfully conducted with students from elementary grades through higher ed. The focus of this book is on how to manage and facilitate CVP projects in the classroom.

Educators who are interested in more authentically engaging and assessing students' understanding of academic content will find this book to be of great benefit.
