Remember that you have to share the interview through Twitter. You can also upload your interview to Youtube or Vimeo. Once you have uploaded the video, it is now time to prepare a short oral presentation of the video you have produced. 

To make this presentation more efficient, you have to use the 'Rubric to assess an oral presentation'.

Thus, you can introduce your video to all the rest of students/teachers using the oral presentation.
