Guest Post: 5 Tricky Ways to Prepare Video Presentations for Classes - Edutech for Teachers

Guest Post: 5 Tricky Ways to Prepare Video Presentations for Classes - Edutech for Teachers | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Every teacher knows that visual aids are a good way to facilitate the learning process and grab students’ attention for a long time. Educators use different posters, videos, slideshows to explain a new topic, provide more details or even test students. Presentations take a prominent part in the visual aids collection. Their main benefit is that teachers can combine various types of content in one presentation: text, images, video clips, music. Saved in a video format, presentations can be easily shown in class, uploaded to YouTube, embedded into a school website, or shared on any other educational resource.

Every teacher knows that visual aids are a good way to facilitate the learning process and grab students’ attention for a long time. Educators use different posters, videos, slideshows to explain a new topic, provide more details or even test students. Presentations take a prominent part in the visual aids collection. Their main benefit is that teachers can combine various types of content in one presentation: text, images, video clips, music. Saved in a video format, presentations can be easily shown in class, uploaded to YouTube, embedded into a school website, or shared on any other educational resource.

 

 Several years ago, teachers had a limited choice of software to create presentations. Namely, there was only one tool for all presentation needs: Microsoft PowerPoint. With it, educators created, edited, and showed their presentations to students. The software was often non-responding in the most crucial moment. To say more, unskilled users often corrupted PPT files, did undesired edits, and simply could not show their works in incompatible school PC operating systems. Only a couple years ago, Microsoft added the possibility to save presentations in popular video formats and upload to YouTube. At the same time, there appeared a great deal of free alternatives, which allowed teachers to create video presentations much easier and faster than with PowerPoint. Here are the most prominent of them.

Julie Bourguignon's curator insight, March 2, 4:58 AM

Do skills get obsolete? This is a list of important skills based on frequency of use, rather than actual purpose. This is a comprehensive list, but remembering to carry your phone/tablet charger should be part of it!

SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, March 2, 11:10 AM

There have been more changes in the last 10 years than in the first 40 I spent on the planet.  These exponential changes are only scratched in this list.
