3 About Video Using Video in the classroom "A lot of students these days expect information to be presented in a flashy, entertaining way, so videos can help draw them in. Though YouTube is blocked in many classrooms because of inappropriate materials on the site, there are many valuable (and downloadable) videos that do further learning. “ – Larry Sanger, WatchKnow.orgWatchKnow.org Teachers all across the country are finding that judiciously chosen videos help students engage more deeply with the subject matter, and recall the information they've learned longer. There is substantial research promoting the use of video in the classroom as a dynamic resource for supporting curricula. According to a recent teacher survey, 94% of classroom teachers had effectively used video during the course of an academic year. (L.Griffin, Library Video Company)

19 Convert it (plan “B”) What if you can’t access YouTube? What if the computer you are presenting on is not connected to the internet? Or what if the school has blocked YouTube? In such cases, you’ll need a downloaded copy of the video file on your local computer (or on a USB flash drive).

23 Convert it (plan “B”) Step 5: Zip files If you use this method, it is a good idea to zip your video clip(s) together with Presentation file.
