Virtual Learning Made Simple
We’ve done plenty of research to explore the different uses of Capture Thought and how it can help students and teachers.
Here are various rubrics, grids, and curricula to maximize your Capture Thought.
|Synchronous Learning (Distance Learning / Snow Days)
|Asynchronous Learning (Any Learning Environment)
This rubric has been created from research conducted by Dr Drew Ishii (2005, 2008) and the inventor of Capture Thought, Joe DiOrio
The audience for student video submission is another student in the class or the “absent” student. Not the teacher.

Students can take charge of how they contribute to knowledge creation by implementing our video and explanatory protocols. As a result of removing many of the biases present in a classroom, students can express their ideas personally without the constraints of a traditional classroom environment.
Students gain ownership and authority when they share the videos with their peers, allowing them to benefit from one another's knowledge and jointly produce content understanding. Videos give the teacher a glimpse into the student's thought process and give a chance for insightful formative feedback. Based on research on explanatory discourse, the Formative Communication Rubric was created to support this system and give teachers a uniform way to provide student feedback.
