This tweet caught my eye.
Unable to answer in a mere 140 characters I came up with the following:
- Show the video with no sound or with sound but no picture. Ask students to tell what they have understood and what questions they have. Show the video again with both sound and visuals and have them complete their summary.
- Show the video without sound and have students write the script or dialogue.
- Have students write down keywords from the video and compile them into a Wordle.
- Have students watch a video clip and then tell the story from another point of view. This could be done in a variety of subject areas.
- Have students watch a video and collect points that might support opposite sides of a debate on the subject.
- Have students write a review as if they were a reporter or critic.
- Play a Kim’s game. Students view a clip and then list as many items as they can.
- Have students compile timelines or a sequence of events.
- Have students create mnemonics.
What interesting, innovative ideas do you have for engaging students when you show videos in class?
