Video is an incredibly effective medium for showcasing something that we want to share with others. We send videos we create or find to our friends and family through various social media platforms.
Videos help us tell our story. They allow us to share our voice.
Adding video to a lesson can increase the engagement and allow you to take students far beyond what they might find in their textbook.
So what are the best tools for creating? And what are some meaningful ways to use video in the classroom?
In a recent #DitchBook Twitter chat (Thursdays at 7 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. MST / 9 p.m. CST / 10 p.m. EST), moderated by Claudio Zavala Jr. we discussed these questions and more. Educators shared tons of ideas and resources for using video in the classroom in ANY subject area and in ANY grade level!
