Kevin Clay makes a lot of sense and comes up with some good rationale for just getting in there and dealing with the fact you don’t feel comfortable on camera and you can’t seem to project who you think you are. It’s practice! Stating the obvious but we don’t think about it in that way and get a surprise when we don’t look and sound the same on camera as we think we do in real life. I can go in front of any class and be a strong, powerful, engaging personality. On camera I am way too quiet. I’m dealing with my not liking my voice on camera , and Kevin Clay makes some good points about that, and now I want to work on that comfort level in front of a camera. With regard to creating videos for a flipped classroom then Kevin Clay’s final point is very pertinent and will nail it for any teacher : Have something relevant to say and be helpful. That’s the whole point, isn’t it? You want to be on video to help other people so forget everything else and focus on how you are going to get that message across just like you would in class or at a conference. Now for all the practice!
