Video In The Classroom

Outside of school, students today are watching video constantly.  A great way to get their attention in class is to use video as the basis for your content.  I read an interesting post the other day by a guy named Karl Fisch who is very popular in the field of technology and education.  He is also a high school math teacher.  He discussed the video below and how he will be using it to help him teach proportion.  He also set up a Skype (video chat) session with the creator of the video so that his students could ask him questions.  The video below can be used for a lesson on proportion but really the idea of using video to drive your classroom instruction can be used in any content area.
