6 YouTube lessons for building better instructional videos

6 YouTube lessons for building better instructional videos | global climate change | Scoop.it

With the rise of the blended learning model of education, video is becoming an increasingly important medium for instruction. The essential components of blended learning - such as flipped classrooms, MOOCs and “Bring Your Own Device” programs - are facilitated by video instruction to ensure the personalization and flexibility of a digitized education system.

Lessons for developing instructional videos.

Becky Mowat's comment, September 23, 2013 8:27 AM
Yes it is so true- be concise, pique curiosity, and use authentic video. Real world settings are so important when teaching L2 learners. A picture still is worth a 1000 words, so just think how much time we save "getting the message across" using brief videos to introduce or define or explain lesson topics.
Becky Mowat's curator insight, September 23, 2013 8:34 AM

I have been using videos creating L2 lessons for a long time to introduce, define and explain topics, also to pique curiosity to learn more... This article  clearly states what attributes a good learning/teaching video should have: brevity, piques curiosity, interesting graphics, real world setting. As educators we can understand why these qualities add value to video content in lessons. For L2 learners I especially like the way LingleOnline uses close-captioned video in many languages to meet the needs of its learners.

IntuiFace is an amazing innovative platform with multi-touch, gesture recognition features for creating interactive presentations. There are examples and tutorials to help you get started.

Incredible but there is a free version which lets you explore the software and see if it is right for you.

 

Thanks for the suggestion to Paolo Tosolini.

What Climate Change Means for Africa, Asia and the Coastal Poor » The Daily Catch

What Climate Change Means for Africa, Asia and the Coastal Poor » The Daily Catch | global climate change | Scoop.it

s the coastal cities of Africa and Asia expand, many of their poorest residents are being pushed to the edges of livable land and into the most dangerous zones for climate change. Their informal settlements cling to riverbanks and cluster in low-lying areas with poor drainage, few public services, and no protection from storm surges, sea-level rise, and flooding.
