YouTube - Khan Academy and the Effectiveness of Science Videos - 1 views

  •  
    "It is a common view that "if only someone could break this down and explain it clearly enough, more students would understand." Khan Academy is a great example of this approach with its clear, concise videos on science. However it is debatable whether they really work. Research has shown that these types of videos may be positively received by students. They feel like they are learning and become more confident in their answers, but tests reveal they haven't learned anything. The apparent reason for the discrepancy is misconceptions. Students have existing ideas about scientific phenomena before viewing a video. If the video presents scientific concepts in a clear, well illustrated way, students believe they are learning but they do not engage with the media on a deep enough level to realize that what was is presented differs from their prior knowledge. There is hope, however. Presenting students' common misconceptions in a video alongside the scientific concepts has been shown to increase learning by increasing the amount of mental effort students expend while watching it."

Every Drop Counts on Vimeo - 7 views

  •  
    "This video is an animated short about water conservation targeted at elementary school kids. Marisa DeLuca created this video as her senior thesis project while working on her undergrad in Communication. It was her first attempt at animation, and she created it using still pictures of characters made from paper. She manipulated the pictures in Adobe Photoshop and then edited the still photos together in Final Cut. "

    Maureen Tumenas is assembling an ever expanding collection of movies of er class and others working especially with science. These are great examples of how video can be used on a number of levels. The videos are a great reminder for the students in Maureen's class, they enable parents to be involved in what is happening in the classroom, they can be used as a stimulus for other students and teachers can review them as a means of professional learning.
