"In this particular lesson, your idea of stations would probably be as or more effective than most similarly themed videos as long as it was well-managed; rotating small-group scenarios can devolve into chaos so quickly if we let them.  However,…"

"I believe that technology and videos should be used as a complement to traditional teaching methods. In our technological age, students expect to learn through digital stimulation. Technology is a constant and overwhelming part of their lives.…"

"I believe that there are of course effective and ineffective ways to use videos in a classroom. Showing videos without having clear objectives of what your students should be learning through the video is not an effective way of using a video. I…"

"In this day and age, I feel that is becoming essential to use videos in the classroom because of the rapid mindset that students have nowadays. It is a society that is based on Smartphones, Facebook / Twitter and all other types of technological…"

"I believe video is vital in the classroom, but must not be used to death and become a crutch.  The stat Thomas worte is amazing, how can we argue against video with a future that will rely so heavily on technology.  Video is also great…"

"I think videos are great at the end of a chapter. I don't think showing a video to students at the beginning of a chapter or unit is as beneficial since students will not have the background knowledge necessary to understand all aspects of a…"

"Video's are a great asset to the classroom. Sometimes the video can be used as a kick start to a unit, other times it is the primary source itself.  For example, in my Junior American History  class we watched a bit of…"

"Honestly, I feel that the use of a certain amount of video material in the classroom is a healthy strategy or activity to adopt if done properly and without the intent of having the video be the primary teaching device in the lesson. I feel that it…"

"I think that this is awesome. The only problems that I can foresee with this is the ages of the students that you are dealing with. I suppose it would not be so much of a problem, but you would just need to adapt the information at the various…"

"Many students today are trying to sneak technology into the classroom. So if we continue to avoid it we will continue to fight and uphill battle. If the class is not responding to full length videos or hands on activities then use short clips that…"
