More on Video Connections
by Samuel Sennott
I have been posting frequently about a framework I am developing on building background knowledge and motivation using video. Today was so inspiring in the camp I lead. Seeing the students so interested in the videos made a huge impression on me. Here are the main benefits we are seeing:
- You can so powerfully build background knowledge in the Guided Reading Domain.
- Videos are a powerful motivator in the writing process, especially for beginning writers.
- Just accessing and watching videos at this point in time, helps learners be “cool” in whatever way “cool” is to them.
- Videos can be a powerful way to fuel the alternate portfolio process.
