By implementing our video and explanatory protocols, students can be in control of how they participate in knowledge creation. Students communicate their thinking in a personal way without the restrictions of a typical classroom setting and removing many of the biases present in a classroom. Sharing the videos with peers releases ownership and authority to students where they learn from each other and co-create understanding of content. Videos allow the teacher into the thought process, and provides an opportunity for valuable formative feedback. The Formative Communication Rubric was developed to complement this system and give teachers a consistent way to give feedback to students based on research done on explanatory discourse.
