Re: Benefits of using video in the classroom

I agree about the "how to" videos...they just never seem to be complete enough for what "I" want to do.

I think it would be great to get someone to video me teaching a technique or lesson and doing the demonstration. And then when I showed it to them...I could talk more about it and also keep an eye on the students at the same time. I always think of things later on that I could have told them. I keep wanting to do this...but somehow, I never get around to doing it. Just a thought!
