How to use video EFFECTIVELY in the classroom
Students today are always “plugged-in” to television and media, which is why when teachers use technology in the classroom it piques student interest. Using a video is a simple way to integrate technology into the classroom. Utilizing video in the classroom does not mean you are putting your classroom on auto-pilot. Some teachers shy away from using video because they do not know how to incorporate it effectively into a lesson, or fear they will not choose a video applicable enough to their topic. But you can overcome these fears by discovering how to prepare and implement productive lessons using video.
