a) ask the students to do something to participate in the work that is presented the video. This includes writing definitions and examples in a notebook, taking notes in however form the students want to.
b) Students who take minimum notes and miss the main points of the lecture
Let the students collaborate with their peers
Lazy students can pick up much of the information from tehir peers.
Peer teaching works.
c) Let students choose when to watch the videos (and give them additional opportunities) Because it is a social experience, many students WANT to be part of the process. Katie tells about how some students will come to her and say, “I didn’t watch the video last night. Can I come in during lunch or before school to watch the video?”
This works when you have computers in the classroom that are set up to allow students to watch the videos with headphones or earbuds.
