Inclusive teaching and learning
Many learners struggle to engage with formal education. This can be for a range of reasons and there's no simple answer to any of them. This site is about reducing the barriers to engagement wherever possible. It will often focus on technology but that's only because technology has a lot to offer in many contexts. Other 'human based' approaches can be just as effective so they'll also get space when they cross the horizon.

Sync Video - watch youtube and vimeo videos together

Sync Video - watch youtube and vimeo videos together | Inclusive teaching and learning | Scoop.it
Ever wanted to watch a video on YouTube or Vimeo simultaneously with your friends, who are not exactly sitting next to you? Now you can watch videos synchronized!

alistairm 's insight:

Sounds really useful for distance learning, particularly if you need to explain additional info for people with sensory impairments - you know you are describing the bit they've got to rather than some other random bit of the video!

John Dalziel's curator insight, August 11, 2013 3:24 AM

Watching YouTube videos with learners is engaging but what if learners are not in the same place as the practitioner, or even in the same country? Sync Video offers the opportunity to create an online room where practitioners and their learners can watch a YouTube video simultaneously, by having it synced to all those who are in the room watching it.
Does this have potential in BYOD, Flipped learning, etc., as well?
