Is This Video Approved?
"Video/audio technology can be an effective part of instruction. The educational use of video/audio resources should, however, be approached with deliberation, selectivity, and careful thought. There should be a clear instructional purpose in use of a video/audio segment. As a result of watching or hearing the video/audio segment, students should perform a particular task or produce a particular product."
In addition, with films that are rated, "Video images from any source rated PG or PG13 do not require parental permission at the high school level. R rated video images or films from any source, including the school media center, may only be shown at the high school level with parental permission (see Parent Approval Form on the X Drive under Media Center)
Please see me if you need any clarification; I understand it can be a bit tricky when dealing with videos and DVDs!
