Recognizing students’ learning-related emotions and taking them into consideration are important pedagogical tools for teachers. Taking students’ views into account promotes their participation. In this study, instant video blogging (IVB) is used to collect primary school students’ first-hand accounts of their emotions in learning situations. Through an experience sampling method (ESM), 22 Finnish sixth-grade students (12–13 years old) took part in IVB nine times during this study. The verbal expressions of students were analyzed to investigate students’ emotional experiences throughout the teaching sequence. The IVB method offered direct insight into how all students experienced teaching sequences. Compared to teacher observations, IVB offers a more diverse view into students’ experiences. This information can be employed when educating future teachers, and developing instructional methods. Further, offering students the opportunity to express themselves is the first step in supporting their participation.
