Last week, I spent a little too much time on my family vacation worrying about and procastinating finishing the video portion of my Google Teacher Academy #GTANY application. I finished the video on the last day applications were being accepted and clicked the submit button.
Yesterday, as I realized that notification day for the academy was today, I checked on my video’s viewship. Two hits? That’s it? They must really give a small group of people access to the videos, I thought. It was then that I realized that I had left the video private. Not unlisted, but private. As in, no one could see it. So much for that.
If I had just been a little more open to criticism and not tried so hard to hide my video, this wouldn’t have happened. I feel like a big dummy for making such a rookie mistake.
Here’s the video that I meant to share with the folks at Google. Maybe next time.
