There is substantial research promoting the use of video in the classroom as a dynamic resource for supporting curricula. Teachers at NIS prepare for the use of a video in the classroom in the same way they do with other teaching aids or resources. Specific learning objectives should be determined in advanced, instructional sequences should be developed and reinforcement activities planned.
As educators at NIS, our aim is to get students energized and engaged in the hands-on learning process, and video is clearly an instructional medium that is compelling and generates a much greater amount of interest and enjoyment than the more traditional printed material. Using sight and sound, video is the perfect medium for students who are auditory or visual learners. With the added use of subtitles each child then has the choice to watch, listen to, or read each presentation. Video stimulates and engages students creating interest and maintaining that interest for longer periods of time, and it provides an innovative and effective means for educators to address and deliver the required curriculum content. Our students can use the NIS videos recordings to teach in case of absence. NIS students are provided with every resource from online textbooks, supplementary books, videos, power point presentations, electronic lessons, quizzing and so much more.
