Watch this video to learn about the benefits of self and peer evaluation through film in the classroom.

In the video above, Stacey suggests that filmmaking creates ‘investment’ in curricular projects and John speaks about the significance of a real world audience causing students to ‘up their game’. In his interview, John suggests a link between the public sharing of work and how invested the creator will be.

Did you share your film with your peers? If so, how ‘invested’ did you feel in the project? Share your experiences, and the success of any shared projects in the Comments section.

Additionally, we’d like you to follow a YouTube link from one of your peers, which contains the film they created and shared. Please feel free to add multiple positive comments on everything you liked about the film in the YouTube comments area directly beneath their film, and add a single comment on what you think could be improved.

Please keep all comments respectful and encouraging.

For use in class we have also supplied self and peer evaluation tools such as the Evaluate Toolkit and Self evaluation worksheets (younger pupils, introductory and intermediate) in the Downloads section below. In an online setting, you could ask your pupils to download and complete the sheet or just use the questions to prompt a discussion online.
