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:

  1. You can so powerfully build background knowledge in the Guided Reading Domain.
  2. Videos are a powerful motivator in the writing process, especially for beginning writers.
  3. Just accessing and watching videos at this point in time, helps learners be “cool” in whatever way “cool” is to them.
  4. Videos can be a powerful way to fuel the alternate portfolio process.
