Sometimes I think my students are actual insects.
You turn on a video and all of a sudden everybody starts to move towards the bright warm light of the screen and their eyes grow large and sort of “bug out.” You know the look. You’ve talked all day supplying them priceless information only to have every word you say go in one ear and out of the other and yet, once that video goes on, you ACTUALLY HAVE THEIR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION.
Such power comes with a great responsibility.
Thankfully there are soooo00OooOOOo0 many videos out there with great information that you can use in your classroom.
