Is Video Becoming a Standard Educational Tool?

Video Becoming a Standard Educational Tool

As technology enters the classroom, we’re seeing an increase in the use of videos.

These days, video is becoming as ubiquitous in classrooms as laminated times tables and whiteboards. Not only are teachers seeing video as another resource to reinforce the material, but also, children with a visual learning preference are benefiting greatly.

The most popular use of video in K-12 is a video being shown in the classroom (73 percent), closely following by student assignments (58 percent), as supplementary lesson material (48 percent), and flipped classrooms (40 percent). But video is also gaining steam in teaching skills and recording students as they practice them (32 percent), in library media collections (31 percent) and recording school events for on-demand viewing.

Video increases student satisfaction with the learning experience. What’s more is that the use of video in the classroom is endless. It doesn’t have to be a simple case of watching a quick YouTube video. Video can be used for student presentations, live streaming an event at the school, in-video quizzing, and synchronized slides. Advanced features can be used in remote presentations, which add a whole new learning experience for the children.

More than half of teachers reported having access to easy-to-use tools for video capture and simple workflows for the publishing of videos available. However, far fewer schools have staff available to help with video creation and management. However, across the board, all those categories have grown since last year’s survey was published. Hopefully we can see those numbers continue to rise.
