8 Ways Schools and Students Benefit from Video Creation

Video creation levels the playing field for students. Students everywhere can create engaging videos, and Storyblocks can help them do it. 

Every student is a storyteller with something important to share. They’re already creating and sharing content on social media, so it makes sense that they would want to produce videos in school as well, and that they too can benefit from video creation.

I’ve seen first-hand the impact video creation can have in a classroom. Before working at Storyblocks, I was a fifth-grade teacher. I encouraged my students to create videos for different subject areas. 

When they had a chance to work on video projects, they got started right away. They organized their ideas efficiently, downloading, uploading, and sequencing content to compose visually compelling stories about everything from ancient civilizations to plant life cycles. 

In doing so, they consolidated their understanding of the subject matter we were covering in class, and they gained an important skill along the way.

Students everywhere can benefit from creating engaging videos, and Storyblocks can help them do it. 

 If teachers provide students with the time, tools, and opportunity to make videos in the classroom, the results can be amazing. 

 Video creation levels the playing field for students. Students who are less confident in their academic abilities can showcase their understanding of the curriculum through video production and create beautiful, finished projects they are proud of. 

 Wherever students’ college or career journey takes them, they have acquired a relevant skill that they can use throughout their lives. Along with their resume, they can wow their future employer with a video of themselves explaining why they should be chosen for the job. They won’t be intimidated when their boss asks them to make a quick explainer video or internal training video.

Storyblocks provides students with a digital learning tool that will prepare them to create more compelling video content.
