How might we enrich video with other resources or experiences so that it better supports your practice?

In Stage 1, we heard that watching a video by itself isn’t often helpful.

Pause points

I've noticed a lot of teachers watch a video on one device and do what's being demonstrated on another. Having a cutaway in videos or a screen message with a natural pause point to assess and see how it went might help many educators.

Potential Impact

Some people feel videos go too quickly. This would make pausing to try something part of the process and make some learners feel better supported.

Possible Implementation

Cutaway to a still of a cheat sheet Message on the screen telling teachers to give it a try

Hi Tami--I believe creating pause points would definitely reinforce professional learning. Where would pause points be inserted? How long between pause points? Or could the viewer pause the video at any time?

I was thinking of the duration of the pause point, with some sort of animation and/or music to get people to think about the topic. You don't want the pause to be longer than 1 minute because then you might lose people's attention.
