Digital Video for the classroom (SMART Board integration)

If you are making Digital Video for the classroom, here are a few pointers to make life easier for teachers:

  • 1-4 minutes is great for Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14)
  • 5-20 minutes is great for Key Stages 4 and 5 (ages 14-19), where a more in depth exploration of a topic may be useful (although short clips are also still useful)
  • attention in the classroom can be lost in the blink of an eye, so it’s great if video can be integrated into interactive whiteboard software – the most commonly used is the SMART Board software, Notebook
  • Notebook currently only supports Flash Video (.flv and .swf) and so Digital Video should be downloadable in either of these two formats

If you are a teacher looking to integrate Digital Video into your SMART Board resources:

Good luck and have fun inspiring the next generation.
