Visual profiling sets expectations for students that vary from classroom to classroom. In a way, students must jump into a costume for each setting in the school. Please watch my vlog to see more of my ideas on Visual Profiling.
My response is in the form a vlog…again. I do write out a skeleton script for each of my vlogs, but not having to edit my script for grammar, sentence structure, etc is very freeing for me. When I stop worrying about how my words will look, I am able to think more deeply and make more connections. I also wanted to show some of the power poses Amy Cuddy mentions in her Ted Talk and the voices of the professional development videos. Also, I tell myself the vlog allows my classmates to experience my ideas without having to stop everything else. Feel free to make dinner or wash the dishes while I talk. I also realize that my spoken word videos may be difficult for learners who prefer written text and that I could work on my verbal presentation skills in an effort to keep my viewers’ attention.
