Why I could/would use Video in the Classroom

Video is a form of storytelling which uses a combination of video, audio and images.

It provides a common experience for students; generate interest and stimulates imagination on the topic; offers a different perspective on or another approach to a topic; connects students with faraway place or time period; demonstrate abstract ideas; stimulates the development of critical thinking skills and promote critical viewing skills and media awareness.

Video is useful in classroom because it helps students retain what they learn by being involved; helps students express their deepest understanding of topic; promotes creativity and technical skills; encourages planning and improves organizing skills and students will be engaged in their learning on a media they are familiar with.
