tom jackson's insight:

Here's my add to this question . . . when I viewed the clip I found myself thinking,  hmmm isn't the real key to this knowing the students  prior level of knowledge?  Anything that is presented for students consideration comes with an embedded  learning challenge, or not.  The key is getting the challenge to interesting an achievable level (Flow, Csikszentmihalyi). Make it too difficult and it achieves learner frustration and disconnect, too easy and boredom and disconnect result.  Presentation of ANY learning material, not just video, needs to provide a spark of curiosity and be scaffolded as students navigate the ZPD (Vygotsky).

Just-in-Time Teaching: An Interactive Engagement Pedagogy

Just-in-Time Teaching: An Interactive Engagement Pedagogy | classroom tech for students and teachers | Scoop.it

Suppose you are teaching an introductory biology course and your next lesson deals with genetics. You would like to prepare your students for the upcoming class by asking them to think about the topic...

 

 

The instructor is now ready to adjust the classroom activities or lesson flow, and improvise if necessary. The flow is pretty much predetermined, but the words used in class will arise from the student responses and, most importantly, will be influenced by the feedback from the live class.

 

Typically, the live class is shown a representative set of responses, and the authors of the responses are invited to comment and elaborate. The rest of the class is encouraged to challenge and suggest alternatives. Properly handled, this can be a teaching opportunity that goes beyond the course content.

 

Students have an opportunity to practice critical thinking and communication skills. The course content is enriched because the wording actually comes from the live class, which makes the lesson fresh and interesting to the students.

Videos are engaging. They can be a powerful tool to draw students in and connect them to content in innovative ways. Here are 20 ways to do it.
tom jackson's insight:

video created by students = powerful assessment of knowledge. many are familiar with modalities of learning and that providing a challenge tat is achievable, yet still a challenge is a great way to engage students in learning.  Think about gamers who are playing for hours at a time, they basically are scaffolded by carefully crafted levels of challenge, and as they master a level are faced with a slightly different or new higher level challenge.  When students are allowed to create video of their study and knowledge similar wonderful things happen 1) they vicariously learn new content and video skills from their peers work, 2) they are challenged to develop their output in a form that is clarified and richer.
