The Power of School Videos in Classroom Lessons

One message that I have consistently been broadcasting to all of my educators over the years is the power of the “how.” I constantly strive to educate teachers about the “what” and the “how” of instruction. หนังน่าดู However over the years I have found that teachers are generally more focused on the ends than the means. They are focused on measurable, academically accurate, skills-based assessments. The reality is that there is only one way to measure the efficacy of a skill: the effectiveness of the process where the skill is practiced. Once the skill is mastered, the person can move on to new challenges and/or styles but the skill as well as the coach will still have to be updated and Babysitting tends to be the tool of last resort. Think about it: what happens after practice where the Babysitter can say, “Try harder next time”? You’ll be asking for more homework, more tests, more homework, more tests. You’ll be getting lectures instead of actual learning.

Think about it: “skills-based” is all well and good but if the skill is not applied or used in daily life, then it is just a waste of time and money. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t for one always say “passing tests” (truth is, I have done all my life math through tests and thoroughly understand the risks and rewards of test-taking). But at the same time I do understand the necessity of thinking more critically and exploring more avenues than one can explore. That is why I am a believer in the power of school videos.ดูหนัง

Now why is this so? Well, school videos have become more than just a backup resource for students; they are now an essential resource for teachers and are an integral part of lessons that if ignored would easily be overlooked by students.What can be more convenient than handing a DVD of dubious value just to save face? Not to mention with today’s downloadable technology, exchanging notes and making classroom videos can be done with the click of a button.

In addition, technology has rendered the traditional role of the classroom teacher obsolete.Thanks to the video, students can view the teacher in real-time and submit questions or comments through email. เล่นเสียว Not only does this ensure that the teacher is “in the loop,” but it also reinforces what students have learned and is a much more effective teaching method as it provides students with a more interactive experience than a one-way chalkboard or closed-book teaching method.

So, why video? As my old colleagues would say, “Who doesn’t love a goodV movie?” Technology gives students an opportunity to rethink expectations, test aptitude and engage in group problem solving with the help of a film. Even better, this can be integrated into the curriculum by the instructor using Web resources and video resources. The possibilities are virtually endless and just waiting to be explored.

One strategy to help integrate school videos into lessons and projects is to use them as a means of teaching/learning how to AvoidAdvantagesor strategies. For example, in a writing lesson, students might utilize their knowledge of how “The locals laugh at foreigners” to write sentences, paragraphs, or pages reflecting their own or a fictional situation. คลิปตั้งกล้อง One step of the process would be to write several sentences on a single topic and then demonstrate, through role-play, how people in their own culture react to a particular neighborhood.

In a math class, students could teams up with other pairs of students to practice analyzing “Theymes and Reasons” using combinations of letters, word roots, or verse/chorus structure. And, just like the real thing, communication and reflection are tested by the video as well. For example, if the video focuses on a particular rhyme or word pair, teach students to re-write the rhyme or word pair adding the next letter (and also using the same initial sound) in the middle. Also, students could analyze the differences and similarities between two or more words based on the way that whole words and phrases are formed.

In a language lesson, students could observe that using video doesn’t necessarily eliminate the need for slides or visual aids. For example, in a oral report, students could listen to the language points and then watch the video and do the same report on their own. Also, video allows students to re-view settings and elements from multiple perspectives, such as the characters from the video.

But, don’t forget the most important thing of all-your students! If you are using videos for lesson planning, be sure to use them to engage your students. Tell them what the video is teaching and observe how they can enrich it with their own language and ideas. คลิปดัง The most important resource a teacher can have is the students-to-be.
