Learning Example | Use Interactive Video to Deliver Effective Digital Instruction
Video is a popular instructional resource for digital learning. It is an engaging medium to learn about a variety of topics. An instructor can
- show and tell about any subject or strategy
- share one video with many learners
- support learning to happen anytime, anywhere.
Learning from video is cognitively demanding and requires a great deal of information processing. Learners
- must process what they are seeing and hearing simultaneously
- need support with retention and sensemaking of video content.
How do we empower learners to make sense of the dynamic, information-rich content in videos?
Watch (via EdPuzzle platform below👇🏾) to learn four simple tips for using interactive video.
- Preview: Use questions, advance organizers or “look fors” to prompt learners to pay attention to key information while viewing the video.
- Focus: Trim or crop video to ensure that learners only view key information.
- Chunk: Pause video or create clips to provide learners time to process key information in the video.
- Check: Strategically ask questions to check for understanding of the key information in the video.
