Readers Theater with Remote Collaborator using WeVideo

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm always looking for creative collaborators.  Creating with others has always the way I MAKE.   The pandemic has certainly changed the way we collaborate, but thankfully some technology tools create the conditions for collaborations. Google tools such as Google Apps / Workplace are certainly a prime example of this.   

This year, one of my other favorite technology tools added some new collaboration features that I was eager to try.  When WeVideo announced its REAL TIME collaboration features, I knew it would be a game changer.   I immediately started to look for ways to these newly announced REAL TIME Collaboration features to the test.  Would it really be possible to work with video projects with remote collaborators in real time in the same manner that I was use to doing with Google Apps?

I'm now on my third major project using WeVideo with remote collaborators and I must say,  WeVideo did not disappoint.   As a matter of fact, this afternoon I'm co-presenting our recent Readers Theater Project with Kate Davie and Emily Young.   Today will be part 2 of our Dynamic Landscape presentation where we focus on the assembling our project in WeVideo. 

Here is a glimpse of the Readers Theater Performance that came out of this collaboration with several Vermont School Librarians.     Enjoy ! 

The creation of this project lead to the following workflow for
