Top Ways Videos Can Be Used in Higher Education

By Suzanna Taylor on Jun 23, 2020 5:52:47 AM

In the not-so-distant past, higher education lectures were almost entirely instructor-led with a heavy focus on written learning materials. Students would spend hours of their week trying to absorb long and complex texts, regardless of their preferred learning style. Then, they would sit in a lecture hall and listen to a professor talk while they listened, often with little audience interaction. For some, this was an effective and enjoyable way to learn but, for many others, it wasn’t quite so engaging.

How to Use Boclips for Teachers to Save You Time When You Use Video in The Classroom

By Suzanna Taylor on Apr 15, 2020 2:32:16 PM

Teachers are busy people. There’s the constant balancing act of lesson-planning, grading papers, meeting with parents and co-workers, and organizing extra-curricular activities. And that’s on top of actually teaching lessons! So when a new resource comes along, it’s easy to see why it might not be a priority. There are so many tools that are wonderfully innovative and rich in pedagogical value, but if they take a long time to implement or aren’t easy to incorporate into existing workflows, they’re likely to fall by the wayside. Fortunately, this problem of “too little time” is one that many EdTech tools are looking to address.

Boclips for Teachers: A YouTube Alternative for Schools

By Suzanna Taylor on Apr 9, 2020 9:15:00 AM

YouTube may be free, popular, and familiar—that's why many teachers use it. But YouTube also lacks security, reliability, and curation, which is why some districts block YouTube entirely. Still, with the proven benefits of using video in learning and students' demand for it, many teachers aren’t willing to give up the search for engaging, short video clips that can make their lessons more engaging. Luckily, Boclips for Teachers offers schools an alternative to YouTube that’s safe, distraction-free, and affordable.

Women's History with Boclips

By Suzanna Taylor on Mar 5, 2020 12:41:34 PM

March is Women’s History Month and to celebrate, we’re helping you to bring women’s history to life across the curriculum. From women in art to female mathematicians and beyond, we’ve collected the best videos to inspire your learners, many with original interviews and footage. This is an empowering way to present women’s history because it challenges traditional third-person, masculine perspectives. While this is especially important for social studies teachers, no subject can be taught without considering its history and how it will develop in the future. Find out how women are key protagonists in the history of art, science, literature, and business, and how the fight for equality is still ongoing.

By Suzanna Taylor on Feb 25, 2020 10:16:22 AM
