How can I use Vialogues in my classroom?

The possibilities are endless! Today's students are tech-savvier than ever, and it's time to take advantage of the endless bounty of educational videos before us. Incorporating edtech tools like Vialogues into everyday lessons and assignments is just one way to keep your students engaged with and challenged by your course content.

Since you asked, however, here are a few suggestions:

  • Keep your students current with news casts, press conferences, and raw news footage.

  • YouTube has millions of movie clips. Bring "Pride and Prejudice" or "The Great Gatsby" to life in your class!

  • Record and upload your lectures so students can annotate the lesson with their questions and comments.

  • Use Vialogues as a way for students to share projects (skits, debates, presentations -- anything that can be captured on video!) with each other and receive feedback.

  • What makes an ad effective? Create a vialogue (or a series of vialogues) and have your students pick apart - second for second - a commercial, viral video, or another type of recorded advertising, in order to promote media literacy in the classroom.

  • Etcetera!
