There’s more to using video in your classroom than just watching movies. Showing short video clips during lecture enhances the educational experience and engages students. After using video in the classroom, “students retain more information, understand concepts more rapidly and are more enthusiastic about what they are learning,” says the National Teacher Training Institute [Why Use Video…].

There are many ways to use video in the classroom to engage students in your topic, to provide different perspectives, and to get them to think critically.This workshop will demonstrate and discuss ways to introduce video to the classroom as well as the use of video in homework assignments.

The presenter is Deborah Finkelstein who teaches Creative Writing, Literature, Composition, Drama, and Speech classes at North Shore Community College and Endicott College.
