Teaching with Microvideo

I’m in love. Sadly, it won’t last long: only about 6 seconds (or maybe 15). The object of my affection is teaching with microvideo. Yes, I have fallen head over heels in love with Vine. The idea is to take six seconds to teach or reinforce a concept using video. Imagine the possibilities of piquing students’ interest with a taste of an idea to come, reviewing a discussion from a previous class, or asking students to create their own. Packing maximum message in minimum space is key.

Edutopia has a nice list of examples of Microvideo in the Classroom.

My favorite is Using Vine in the Higher Education Classroom. Collection of “how to” Vines is a wonderful idea. And, there is indeed an Android version.
