MFaculty's curator insight, June 21, 5:22 AM

Converting your video to a playable file that you can carry with you on a USB drive can really up your game when teaching in a classroom where you may not have Internet access. 

 

This online application will 'help' IF you take a few minutes the day before your class and do a little prep work. Too often we become accustomed to having technology work flawlessly and fail to bring a plan 'B' with us. 

 

A little preparation will go a long way, plus you'll always have a plan 'B'!

The post begins with a short exploration of text and videos and then explores the interaction between video and text. The comprehension strategies are divided into four sections (information below quoted from the text):

* Before viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

* During viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

* After viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

Each of these sections has ten questions that provide anchor strategies. For example, the first section (before viewing) includes Anchor Strategies: Viewing Purpose, Preview, Predict, Connect
