1.The benefits of video in education

Nowadays, video is one of the most powerful tools in education. It allows teachers to teach their students in an impactful way that resonates long after the lesson has passed. Additionally, it gives learners a chance to pause and replay information until they have mastered it themselves.

At Raintree Nutrition, we focus on teaching sustainable farming through our online courses. These courses are led by expert nutritionists and dietitians who have years of experience in their fields.

Video has been an invaluable tool to us, especially because our courses involve visual learning. For example, many learners find it helpful to watch a video on how certain foods affect the body compared to reading about them in text.

Other ways we utilize video

  • Teachers can record their lectures as videos so students can go back and review the information as many times as they need.
  • For certain subjects, such as science or math, teachers can upload instructional videos for students to watch before class. They could simply be video versions of PowerPoints or handouts.
  • Interactive videos are an effective way of engaging learners in subjects they may not be interest in otherwise. In a nutrition course on plant-based diets, we have included quick quiz videos on different fruits and vegetables that students can watch before or after class.

 

How to use video in the classroom

Video has been a great educational tool for decades, and it’s still going strong today. It’s one of the easiest ways to capture students’ attention and convey critical information quickly and efficiently. Plus, if you’re looking for student-created content, video is an easy way to find it!

Video allows teachers to communicate with parents as well. Don’t forget that video is an excellent method of communication with parents, allowing you to share information quickly and efficiently.  Video also allows you to share information without being there in person. When it comes to student-created video, there are some great opportunities for educators to use this medium for teaching. Student-created videos can be use as a way of seeing what students know about a particular topic or how they view the world on their terms.

Examples of how video has been used in education successfully

The following are examples of how video has been used in education successfully in the online tajweed Quran school program.

1- Teachers can bring their classes to life by reading along with them to provide an educational experience that is dynamic and engaging, especially when the teacher’s voice becomes part of the recitation (tarteel) in the Tajweed Quran classes.

2- Teachers can also use video and audio to share how and why they read particular letters in a certain way, thus allowing the students to follow along with their teacher and learn from them directly. This can be do by reading along with them in class or at home through paltalk live sessions.

3- Teachers can also use video and audio to enhance lessons in online tajweed Quran classes by bringing examples of how the letters are sounded out in the Arabic language, thus allowing students to hear and see how a letter should be pronounced. For example, while teaching about the ta’ marbuata (i.e., when one letter ends with taa’ marbuataat and the next word starts with ta marbuta, like yusr (easy), teachers can use video to show how the pronunciation of the marboota (i.e., taa) changes sound according to its when it is at the end.

Video is a powerful tool for teaching and learning. Educators should consider how to make the most of this technology by incorporating video in their instruction. Finding ways to use it as an assessment method, and creating collaborative videos with students. In addition, educators can create online tutorials that are easily accessible from mobile devices. Or laptops to help close the digital divide between. Those who have access to high-quality educational materials and those who don’t. With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way towards using video as a powerful instructional technique!
