Benton Tech Tips for Teachers

The Use of Video in The Classroom

Video has become a staple of the classroom. We have seen where through the use of video students can retain information more easily and understand concepts more quickly. Video is not meant to replace teaching, it is meant to enhance it. Teachers can use video to take their students on a virtual field trip to a city they are discussing in history or foreign language class or to bring a part of literature to life in english. In science, teachers can use video to show complex demonstrations or abstract concepts.


This Smore is dedicated to many different video resources out there for teachers to use and incorporate in their daily lesson planning.
