9 Tips for Effective
Use of Video in Class
1. Watch it yourself first.
So you can find the why.
Ask – is the
video f the
or
class or the
class f the
or
video?
2. Download it
& practice
playing it
with the
technology
you’ll be
using.
And we’re not
just whistlin’ Dixie.
3. Have a back up plan. No, really.

Plan A
 Plan B
Maybe
something
you didn’t
have time
f earlier
or
in the year.
Or some
questions to
discuss
(see handout
f ideas).
or
4. Lay the Foundation
When you say you’re going to see a
video, does the class look like this?
Create: Emotion
Create:A Need to Know
Create:An Expectation
Ask questions

(have them visible
during the video)
Encourage
Prediction
Remember:
choice +
control
=
optimal
experience
So monitor class
reaction and be
prepared to
abandon ship
if it’s not
working out.
5. Encourage Activity During the Video
Y
ou don’t want
their heads here.
Let them touch
the screen.
Use whiteboards
to gauge and
gather responses.
Have them look up the next
Next scripture
scripture after one that is
referenced in the video.
T
urn-n-T
alk
6. Feel free to press “pause.”
Why?
Avoid firehosing the class with
too much material at one time.
Check for understanding.
Define a word or phrase or allusion.
Emphasize a key idea.
7. Clean up after the party.
Review and refer (to previously
seen videos or lessons)
Ask the questions you said
you were going to.
And then really listen;
don’t just wait f your
or
turn to talk. Just sayin’.
Include music and the Spirit.
Discuss in small groups and report.
8. Ideas
Video chain (go from one
video to another to another
like a scripture chain)
Find and flip at ed.ted.com
{you’ve got to use the YouTube version of the video}
Paste the link of the
video you want in here
and press “enter.”
Click this.
then this
Now you (or class members) can add
questions, start discussions, or
suggest further reading or watching.
video vote (let class pick a fave)
And f the
or
really
adventurous
among you…
9. Create/modify your own videos
{or let the class create them}
Animoto will let you use video, images,
and text to create your own videos.
Screen capture: use a tool like this one
to record videos of your screen & your
voice. See handout for more ideas.
