Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

TedX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

  1. Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.
  2. Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
  3. Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.
  4. Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.

What the Library of Congress Has for Teachers: Primary Sources and Tools and Techniques to Use Them | Teaching with the Library of Congress | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it

Primary sources are more important to teachers than ever before, and the Library of Congress makes it easy not only to find great primary sources, but also to quickly and effectively use them in your teaching.

The Library is one of the world’s largest sources of free primary sources, with more than 30 million items available via easy searching at www.loc.gov. U.S. history, English and language arts, science, world history and cultures–there are primary sources for almost every discipline.
