Helll-ooo! Watching Videos Does Not Necessarily Lead to Learning -- THE Journal

Helll-ooo! Watching Videos Does Not Necessarily Lead to Learning -- THE Journal | Learning  and Libraries: practice and possibilties | Scoop.it
Watching videos is fast becoming a canonized instructional method in K-12. But a young researcher from Australia has some provocative, scientifically based research that ought to give video proponents significant pause. But, all is not lost, as we report in this week’s post.

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
Sue Osborne's insight:

I found this article particularly interesting as the researcher is from Australia. Just shows, just because they can watch something entertaining on a subject, it does not follow that they will learn ANYTHING about it. I also found it amusing that the students felt that the second more straight forward video was more "confusing" and needed more effort to watch - and it was the one they learned more from! So...using one's brain helps you learn stuff! Who knew? (insert sarcastic grimace here)
