On February 15, 2017, we presented at the METC conference.  Our topic was Getting a Handle on Video in the Classroom: Pedagogically, Organizationally, and Financially.   We both use videos when teaching and training and we discussed several challenges with using videos in the classroom:

  • Finding  quality videos
  • Creating videos
  • Measuring student interaction and holding students accountable for using videos
    • Adding interaction (questions, additional information, etc.) to video will help add structure to aid students’ processing of the information
    • The added bonus is that students will be held accountable for watching the video
    • If you are interested, check out EDpuzzle, playposit, and Vizia.

Since we only had 50 minutes, we created an interactive notebook in Google Docs for the session.  It is designed to lead teachers through Getting a Handle on Video in the Classroom.   If you did not attend and would like to access the interactive notebook, submit your request to or you can access a PDF version from our TeachersPayTeachers site.
