Summary: The essential is that learners generate video answers in response to proposed scenario challenges. Learners will then get to view the  so called “solution” video, only after submitted their video response to the challenge.

Step 1 -Present a scenario challenge to the learner and ask them to consider solutions.

Step 2 -The learner, uses a mobile phone or other video tool to records a response describing how they  would respond to the scenario. So instead of just receiving a passing answer, learners juxtapose their  own answer next to the “model answer”.

Step 3– Using a rubric grading system, the collective group can identify 3 or 4 video responses which rise to the top, thereby making the process more meaningful and scalable.

Karl claims that because the learner now have some skin in the game, they more actively compare and contrast to reach that teachable moment.  It also adds another level of motivation by asking the learner to apply their judgement to peer responses.  In the end, the learner is more interested to see the expert solution.
