Video Presentation

  1. 1. Finding and Using Streaming Videos for your classroom NIHS Edition
  2. 2. Why do we need to use video in our instruction? <ul><li>Think about something you’ve learned to do through video-based instruction and write it down. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Was it effective or not? Why do you think it was (un)successful? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What type of video instruction are you using currently? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do you wish to use more? What are some of your obstacles? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>And by using video I mean, not checking out a movie and showing it in the place of instruction, but instead incorporating it into a co-teaching experience. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Ideas about videos <ul><li>Video can show a preview or a teaser to a lesson. </li></ul><ul><li>Video can show relevance to a subject. </li></ul><ul><li>Video is an element that grips our students’ attention better than anything. </li></ul><ul><li>Well, short of a cell phone ring. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, if you can make a video, you can alter your demeanor a bit or use your classroom character to establish a different way to instruct children you’d normally miss in a direct instruction environment. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why I use videos <ul><li>For me, it is essential. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I’m an English teacher, so when someone comes in and asks me how to find the volume of a triangle, my head kind of pops gears as it tries to remember that it is something close to the area of a triangle and I remember something to the tune of Base times height or something. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>For that, I resort to video </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And because of that, I usually sit over the student’s shoulder and watch a tutorial on the math problem and then I try to remember it, and it will work, for a week or so. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Set some goals for today <ul><li>Clairify the meaning of Web 2.0 </li></ul><ul><li>Quiz you guys on some file extensions </li></ul><ul><li>How to download and save YouTube (and other sites’ files) </li></ul><ul><li>How to find videos online, or at least some hints. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Web 2.0 <ul><li>I could try to explain this to you verbally, but I think a video link might be the best . </li></ul>
  7. 7. What is an example of a Web 2.0 site? <ul><li>There’s tons of sites out there. From Facebook, to Flickr, to Twitter, to Amazon, to DeviantArt, to Gaia Online, to YouTube, to Blogger. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Basically any site that uses web applications while focusing on collaborative user content to generate traffic. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>We’re going to look at </li></ul>
  8. 8. What does Delicious do And why do I need to know? <ul><li>Delicious is one of a few book marking sites that allows you to carry bookmarks from one computer to the next, or to share bookmarks amongst other users. </li></ul><ul><li>While I can shoot a bookmark to a friend to share a joke, I can also search anyone else’s bookmarks. </li></ul><ul><li>This means that I can find preferred sites through Delicious, better than Google search. </li></ul><ul><li>It also is a great tool for group research projects using multiple computers. </li></ul>
  9. 9. File Extension Quiz <ul><li>.exe </li></ul><ul><li>.wmv </li></ul><ul><li>.flv </li></ul><ul><li>.mp3 </li></ul><ul><li>.mp4 </li></ul><ul><li>.avi </li></ul><ul><li>.mov </li></ul><ul><li>.dmg </li></ul><ul><li>.pdf </li></ul><ul><li>Portable Document </li></ul><ul><li>Compressed Music File </li></ul><ul><li>Compressed Video File </li></ul><ul><li>Quicktime Movie File </li></ul><ul><li>Windows program </li></ul><ul><li>Mac install file </li></ul><ul><li>Flash Video </li></ul><ul><li>Windows Media </li></ul><ul><li>Codec required video file </li></ul>
  10. 10. How to download YouTube (or elsewhere) files for your class <ul><li>First off: get a bookmarklet for your browser at this site . </li></ul><ul><li>Now that you’ve installed the bookmarklet, find the video you want and try to grab it using the two bookmarks. (Also if it is on another site, check Google/YouTube for a copy of it.) </li></ul><ul><li>Now that you have your file, you can place it on your class website/blog, or upload it to a location that can host it. If you don’t have a place, we need to see how to help you with that. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Now let’s go “Toobin’” <ul><li>The links to many of the videos I have selected today are on or they are on: </li></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Let’s take a look at what we can find. </li></ul><ul><li>I will also show you Global Issues </li></ul>
  12. 12. Recap <ul><li>Our kids need varied instructional methods, video is a quick outlet for such. </li></ul><ul><li>Web 2.0 tools can help educators collaborate and share ideas with one another. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowing the different media files can help you know which ones you can use in class. </li></ul><ul><li>You can download video from YouTube and other sites and show them in class, or offline, or rehost them on another server. </li></ul><ul><li>Some subject areas are harder to find video, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be made. </li></ul>
  13. 13. What will Web 3.0 Be? <ul><li>That is the real question today. </li></ul><ul><li>In my mind, it will be an “augmented reality” where the internet hosts information on the web that interfaces in real time with physical reality. </li></ul><ul><li>One of the early “browsers” could be out in the next 2-5 years. </li></ul>
