Episode 30

What do we know about students’ learning comprehension and video use? What do students say about their desire to interact with video in different types of learning environments? How are learners—from kindergarten students all the way up through adults—actually learning from videos, and how might video producers increase engagement with the videos being used in varied learning environments? These are some of the questions this week’s guests tackle. They also define the flipped classroom and blended learning, and discuss how video fits into these new instructional models. If you are interested in how video impacts student learning, then this week’s episode provides a great introduction to the subject and offers insights from SAGE’s recent white paper, Assessing the Impact of Educational Video on Student Engagement, Critical Thinking and Learning: The Current State of Play.
