What sets this Consumer Car Care Course apart is the utilization of the Clips App on iPad, allowing students to create engaging "How-To Videos" that serve as an assessment and valuable takeaway resources for students to keep and follow to maintain their or their family’s vehicle.
Clips offers a dynamic platform for visual expression, enabling the creation and sharing of short movies using video, photos, text, stickers, and other effects. The key to the consumer car care course success lies in thinking visually. Showcasing maintenance procedures with proper automotive terminology, tools, and real-life examples relevant to the student’s vehicle.
In the words of one of our students, "The Clips How-To Videos” saved me when I got a flat tire." I had air-dropped my videos from my iPad camera roll to my iPhone and organized the videos into an Album. I went to the videos I needed on my phone to help me fix my flat. I was able to fix my car without having to call my Dad for help!”
From a teacher's perspective, the engagement level in this course is remarkable. Students actively participate in creating and revising their videos, recognizing that proper vehicle maintenance enhances equipment value and longevity. This in turn means that students are saving money which is motivation to learn all 19 Basic Maintenance features well.
Incorporating “How To Videos” created in CLIPS has impacted the learning in the Consumer Car Care course with the addition of the power of visual demonstration of practical, hands-on learning.
Video Expectations: I can use presentation skills that demonstrate my knowledge of automobiles. I can share my knowledge so others know how to perform the task and use equipment in the Autos lab to perform basic maintenance on vehicles safely and correctly.
In 2019, at the ADE Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. Kristen Brooks fellow Apple Distinguished Educator shared a clever Clips tutorial video. Appreciating the value of this tutorial. I recreated the video tutorial to support students and teachers as Clips continued to update. Please feel free to use the video tutorial YouTube link with your students and staff as you teach and create using the Clips App on iPad.
