Bringing Extra and Co-curricular Subjects to the Virtual Classroom

By Bree Fabig on Aug 7, 2020 9:40:03 AM

Educators learned something during spring’s sudden transition to remote learning: we simply can’t cover the same amount of material as we do in the classroom. Some teachers are expecting to progress through as little as a fifth of the material they would plan to otherwise cover this school year, leaving little room for extra and co-curricular subjects.

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.

Why Video is the #1 Digital Tool Teachers Use in the Classroom

By Boclips on May 15, 2020 5:44:27 AM

The use of video in education isn’t what it was. It was once considered a rare treat for students when their teachers would roll the AV cart into the classroom and turn on a video for an hour or two of passive media consumption. Today, teachers use videos regularly, generally in bite-sized chunks, as an integrated part of their lessons. Rather than consuming them passively, students now actively engage with the content as their teachers facilitate activities and discussions centered around the video. Video is no longer just an occasional supplement: a recent survey shows that video streaming sites are the top digital tool teachers use in the classroom (Common Sense Media, 2019).

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.
