Do You Have a Question For Us?

How can streaming and interactive video be used in education?

  • 4 C’s are huge here – Using video to encourage communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity and encouraging learning to happen not only inside of the school building or district, but also globally.
  • Streaming/Interactive video helps increase engagement and ultimately comprehension
  • Live Streaming brings experts in the classroom and enhances the learning process. 
  • “Virtual Field Trip”
  • Lends to various learning styles
  • Offering courses in a district across campuses where a teacher may only be available at one building and not another
  • Being able to offer coaching services to teachers across a district when an instructional or tech coach is not always available in every building / IT Support could also be done in this way
  • Interactive Video
    • Flipped Classrooms
    • Flipped staff meetings
    • Flipped PD 
      • So many times teachers use the time factor to say they don’t have time to attend a PD after school that is face to face. Using interactive video in combination with choice boards is a great way to offer PD.  Count the time by using an application that will show that they have watched it and answered some questions about what was presented.
