Fifteen Second Video: “Praise In The Classroom” (Revised)


(NOTE: If you’re reading this on an RSS Reader, I mistakenly posted an even rougher version of the video originally. This one is rough, but just not as rough)

I’m considering making a series of fifteen second videos highlighting key points from my student motivation books.

This is my first and obviously rough attempt, though, if I do them, I want to keep them simple.

Let me know if you think more videos like this would be useful to educators….

I’m adding the video to The Best Resources For Learning How To Best Give Feedback To Students.

  1. Looks really interesting. However, it was so short that I can´t really tell.

  2. I think you should give this effort a go! Short and to the point.

  3. 15 seconds is too short, especially for the number of slides with words you want us to read. Slides disappeared before I could read what was on them-and I have to listen at the same time. Your brain can only focus/absorb one thing at a time, so give us enough time to read the slides, if they are important.
