How can Teachers use video?

 

  • Go back in time: Re-enact key moments in world history that would be very expensive to do in real life.

  • Take a fieldtrip: Go around the world without the price of a ticket and learn about different cultures. Go into space, or even into the human body, while you wait for technological advancements that let your students go inside a human brain.

  • Science experiments: Showcase an experiment as a guideline for your actual laboratory tests. Or, demonstrate an experiment in animation that would otherwise be too dangerous or expensive to do in class.

  • Language basics: Visually see different languages and even compare the basic dialogues between two or more languages.

  • Role playing:  Play the video, and then have your students re-enact what they've seen in the video. This is a great way to have students memorize.
