Why make videos for teaching and learning?

There are many possible reasons for trying this teaching technique. Here are just a few we've encountered already during the project.

Opportunities for students

  • You need to truly understand an issue in order to explain it through storytelling
  • Opportunities for collaborative learning
  • Acquiring a wide variety of new skills beyond the topic covered, such as project management, teamwork and networking
  • Additional experience to put on their CV when applying for higher or further education

For teachers

  • Provides opportunities for students to be very creative
  • Modern equipment and software now makes the whole process much quicker and easier than you might think
  • Very engaging for students
  • Your students get to try something "cool"
