Tools for using video in the classroom

Be specific about instructions when watching videos to encourage active viewing.

Ask students to:

    • Jot down a reflection when an even occurs
    • Raise their hand during a specific event or quote
    • Be prepared to respond to a specific prompt at the end of the video
    • Talk about what active viewing looks like

Augment the video by:

    • Pause the video and asking specific questions
      • Check for understanding
      • Do you guys check that out? What does that mean?
    • Pausing the video and ask students to talk about what just happened with a partner
      • Not 10-minute just a quick 2-minute conversation
    • Playing the video twice and explain that you will be watching it twice
      • For short videos
    • Hiding the video and only showing the audio of the footage
      • Listen to this artist and tell me what you think the work looks like
    • Turning off the audio……
      • What do you think they are saying?
