Learn by Seeing

Posted by Mike Jaber on Dec 11, 2018 8:57:44 PM

There are many diverse learning styles that educators need to reach. It is agreed upon by numerous research studies that 65% of the population consists of visual learners. In a Huffpost article from 2014, it states that video may be the best way to improve learning styles, especially when it comes to remembering key facts and figures. Forrester Research estimates one minute of online video equates to approximately 1.8 million written words. In addition, 90 percent of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text. This indicates visual education aids like video can improve learning styles and increase the rate at which we retain information.

We love to learn and grow, and we know that the teachers and course developers we work with love to learn and grow as well. One of our favorite places to learn and grow is in our individual Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) consisting of edchats, webinars, podcasts, and more. Through our participation at various events such as ISTE and local edcamps, we've come to personally meet many of the educators that use boclips in the classroom and as instructional technology coaches. Recently, we had the opportunity to coordinate with Edchat Interactive and Mitch Weisburgh and allow some of our boPROs that we've had the honor of working with share their use of boclips. We'd love to share the recorded sessions with you from Suzy Lolley and Dave Blanchard.
