How I Use It
When introducing a new skill, students could view a video the night before the lesson as in flipped classrooms. I like to introduce a topic and practice with the students. The next day I use the video to reteach or review. I also post the video as a resource for students and parents.
My Take
I like to have videos that support each skill to offer to my students that they can use outside of the class. The same woman presents the videos. The visual is simple and basic with few distractions. I especially like the clear way she writes on the board. This is one of may favorite video sites for teaching.
