The Art of Using Subtitled Educational Video for Visual Learning
Visual Learning is such an effective means of learning for children and students of all ages, that it virtually essential for every teacher and parent to know and fully understand exactly what it is, and how it can be used to enrich every child’s education.
And why is this so important for all teachers and parents?
Because we live in an age that no matter how much we care about our children, education and learning is becoming so dull and uninteresting for many of them, that many kids simply lack the motivation and drive to make the most of the educational opportunities that are available to them.
This is both sad and ironic, because it is arguable that never before has the education of our children been so important.
Zane Education is currently the only provider of educational video that has been specifically developed for the teaching of the K12 curriculum that has included the subtitles with each video. Their online educational video subscription system provides access to the world’s largest online subtitled educational video library, and when we discuss Visual Learning, subtitled educational video is one of the most compelling interesting and effective forms of Visual Learning available for children and students of all ages and abilities, particularly in situations where reading and learning difficulties of all types are involved.
As one of the leaders in the field of Visual Learning, Zane Education has decided to publish a series of articles that will demonstrate for teachers and parents alike, how subtitled educational video should be used as an effective and valuable tool to breath life back into the education of not only the average school or homeschool educated child, but also children with Special Needs, Learning Difficulties, Autism, Dyslexia and Reading Difficulties, Sight Impaired Students, Hearing Impaired Students and Disabled Students.
At the same time you will come to understand how Gifted Students and ESL Students will also benefit in a meaningful way. And above all, you will be shown how subtitled, educational video can, and should be used to rapidly improve reading skills while learning a range of curriculum subjects, in what can be a remarkably short period of time.
But first it is important to understand the definition of Visual Learning.
Visual Learning is defined as “a teaching and learning style in which ideas, concepts, data and other information are associated with images and techniques. It is one of the three basic types of learning styles that also includes kinesthetic learning and auditory learning.”
So to simplify this, to provide Visual Learning first we need the curriculum information that is to be learnt to be associated with images – that’s simple – thanks to Zane we’re going to use their subtitled educational videos – which were specifically developed to accommodate curriculum requirements. Secondly, we need the techniques. In other words, what are the techniques used to enable these educational videos to successfully help a child with dyslexia or reading difficulties, as opposed to the techniques used to help a child with Special Needs or Autism. And how on earth can a set of learning tools that will help a child with visual or hearing impairments, also provide a valuable learning solution for the Gifted Student.
Well that is exactly what this series of articles is going to explain and reveal.
These articles on Visual Learning and Educational Video are going to be published on this blog over the course of the next week to ten days. So it would be a great idea to make a point of coming back each day because one thing is certain …….your child or children will definitely fall within one of the categories being discussed, and that information could not only help bring interest and motivation back into your child’s learning and education, but you may well also discover some information and pointers that can be applied to your particular situation that you had not previously considered, and that will have the ability to completely change the way your child perceives their education, and the importance of it in their lives.
