Video Lectures

A study conducted by U.S. News & World Report, an advanced placement calculus teacher at a school ranging from ages three to twelve in Potomac, Maryland was facing a difficult issue with her calculus students staying engaged and productive while in class. She often found that the rigorous lectures left the students more perplexed after class. In order to combat this issue, the teacher took matters into her own hands by using a screen recording and video editing program called “Camtasia Studio”. She then made recordings of her lectures and uploaded them onto iTunes where her students were instructed to watch the lectures at home for homework with the capability of replaying and pausing the lectures as needed. During class, she would work with the students on problems in the classroom in reference to the assigned lecture videos. This allowed her students to take their time by watching the lectures at their own pace in order to better understand the materials with reinforcement in the classroom with hands-on problems.
