How Video Is Driving Better Learning Outcomes

on August 18, 2014

Over the past several years there has been a lot of talk about challenging the classroom status quo. With many classrooms still looking much like they did 30 or 40 years ago, plus or minus a projector, the heat has been on for better education technology.

Over the past several years there has been a lot of talk about challenging the classroom status quo. With many classrooms still looking much like they did 30 or 40 years ago, plus or minus a projector, the heat has been on for better education technology.

Perhaps one of the most important innovations in creating better learning environments has been the introduction of video. From telepresence to streaming to collaboration, the use of video in the classroom has the potential to make better learning more achievable.

For instance, the idea of the upside down classroom has long been of great interest. Why go to class to learn the lesson when you could go to class to discuss, debate, engage and improve? Historically it was because the classroom time is the only time between the student and the teacher.

With video and telepresence technology this can be reversed and lessons and additional insights can be given ahead of time and consumed on demand. How powerful is that?

Here are some additional great insights on the improved learning that can be created from our partners at Polycom.
