  13. Tips for Using Videos • Search for videos using Google, YouTube, or TeacherTube, or find reviewed lists such as the ASE Writing Instruction Videos List • Review videos before showing them • Assign videos as supplemental instruction, to be watched in class; in a computer lab; at home, work or a library; and/or from a portable device such as a smart phone or an electronic tablet

  14. Tips for Using Videos • Use a “flipped classroom” model • Students watch instructional videos as primary instruction, beforethe class • They take a short assessment after they watch the video • Assessment scores are aggregated and reported to the teacher before the class, and • Teacher, tutor, aide and/or student peer tutors use class time to help those who did not learn the content from the video.

  15. Tips for Using Videos • Make videos of yourself or your students modeling skills or knowledge or solving problems; or have your students make their own instructional videos; select good ones to build or supplement a classroom video library.
