Our friends over at KQED Education have ample experience helping educators use media effectively in the classroom. Below they suggest the following sharing techniques for segmented video viewing.
Start a word map on a subject with the class before viewing a video and then add to it after viewing the video.
What I Know, What I Think I Know
Before viewing, have the students tell you what they are sure they know about the topic and what they think they know. After viewing the video segment, have students add to the lists based on what they learned.
To encourage students to compare and contrast ideas or objects make a “T” chart on a flip chart or butcher paper. Invite students to first find similarities and list those on the left side of the “T”. Invite students to look for differences and list those on the right side on the “T”.
Number students within small groups so that each person has a number: 1, 2, 3, or 4. Then ask the entire class a question. Have each group “put their heads together” to make sure that everyone in the group knows the answer. Call a number (1-4) and have the student with that number raise their hands to respond.
Think – Pair – Share
Ask students a question about the segment they just viewed. This may be to explain a concept you’ve just taught, summarize the three most important points of the segment or whatever fits the lesson. Provide ample time for each student to formulate his or her ideas. Invite students to turn to their neighbor and share.
Last One Standing
Ask an open-ended question in response to the viewed segment. Have students stand up when they have an answer in their head. Provide enough time for everyone to stand up. Start with one person sharing his/her answer. Instruct anyone else who has the same or very similar answer to sit down. Continue until all ideas have been shared and there is no one left standing.
