Kathy PolitisConsultant, Fulton County Schools
1. Use video to assess prior knowledge.
2. Allow students to take control of their own learning by creating video to 'show what they know.'
3. As a teaching team, divide up the team to find videos to address the needs of diverse learners in the grade or subject. When students need additional opportunities to learn the work of finding the resources to address their needs is done.

I am excited about Safari Montage. It can serve as a pathway into personalized learning through a flipped style learning environment by using videos as a means to present content, a great tool for storing all of your information through the upload feature, and a way to ensure content matches standards through the advanced search options. Safari Montage will also allow for differentiated instruction.
Daphney MillsCurriculum Support Teacher, Fulton County Schools
Teachers can develop their lessons within a playlist. including websites, documents, images, etc... This ensures the integration of various technology types in lessons and classrooms.
Students will be exposed to more than just one way to turn in assignments. This should increase engagement.
As teachers develop playlists and share them within the school, the amount of resources available by standard will offer peers within the school a different perspective on delivering content.

I would use Safari Montage in a technology station and have a playlist of videos ready for the students to watch and complete activities on. I would also use it for research in the classroom because it is a good way to find multiple sources in one location. I would use this program to create individual playlists for my students who need reteaching on a certain skill or standard.
