Across all grade levels, the benefits of video in the classroom are immediate and tangible: rich immersive learning environments, improved lesson retention, access to compelling new materials and better student engagement. Common uses of video in K-12 schools include: centralized media library, rebroadcasting public and educational TV, inter-school collaboration, event broadcasting, community outreach, digital storytelling and the creation of student generated content. Video also enables teachers to create and share content with both students and their peers on a district-wide or even country-wide basis. VBrick is standards-based so it connects easily to traditional TVs, interactive whiteboards, PCs, Macs as well as the latest tablets and smartphones.
Even in these challenging economic times Kingsland School District in Minnesota has pressed ahead with efforts to better engage with their students. They’re “flipping classrooms” so students get more time to practice what they’ve learned and the opportunity to go back and review challenging materials
Since 1997, VBrick has helped thousands of educational institutions build compelling, video based curriculums. We have been a partner to schools that are committed to 1:1 computing initiatives where every student is armed with a tablet; and to the “flip-the-classroom” concept where teachers capture their lectures via video for students to watch as homework --opening up classroom time for more interactive and group exercises.
