In Stage 1, we heard that watching a video by itself isn’t often helpful.
When time is of the essence, teachers can quickly scan video transcripts to cut to the chase. Closed captions can make it simple for educators to 'fast forward' through the video without missing any content while reading. Pausing and playing the most meaningful parts allows time to reflect context while allowing for a quick read of the other components.
Transcripts allow easy cut/paste notetaking. Verbal linguistic, spatial and kinesthetic learners will experience multiple inputs to seal their learning. Time to choose a video and watch a video will be cut in half at minimum. Educators will greatly increase effectiveness and use of time to review videos in a way that specifically match their interests, while increasing the breadth and depth of perspectives on their area of interest.
At little to no taxpayer cost, either transcribe directly from videos or use speech to text software to create drafts of video libraries. The next step would be to organize and activate education supporters to review and edit transcriptions for accuracy.
