Can Instructional Videos Make You Smarter?
Can Instructional Videos Make you Smarter? is the title of episode 1 of my new podcast. It's a series that makes educational research practical and accessible. Video is such a powerful learning tool. It has the power to motivate, engage and aid learning and retention. But most educators don't use it to its full potential. I want to help them do so.
Each month, I'll choose a paper, synthesize it and provide practical ways to apply the findings. There will also be additional resources for those who want to learn more. In the first episode, I delve into a 2019 paper, 25 Principles for Effective Instructional Video Design by Fyfield, Henderson, and Phillips. I've chosen this article because it's user-friendly and provides some really useful takeaways. I also learned something when I read it and am excited to share what I've learned with you.
