Math 3-6

Overview

Providing visuals to introduce, support, or review instruction activates more cognitive processes to support learning. Videos also allow students to experience problems and scenes outside the classroom, capturing their Attention by bringing in different cultures and experiences (one strategy for culturally responsive teaching) and engaging them in authentic learning opportunities.

Use It in the Classroom

Starting at 5:20, watch how this teacher has his students to create their own math music videos. Being in charge of this creative process enhances students' retention of math content.

  • While videos can be engaging on their own, teachers need to plan additional activities to support their learning objectives. This intentional combination is essential to activating the full learning potential of videos to build students' understanding. For example, teachers can flip their class and allow students to collaborate to create their own math videos, supporting the retention of the concepts in their Short-term and Long-term Memories.
