A multimedia approach to instruction and training is now the expected way to teach at all levels and in all sectors of education. Video is a crucial tool for educators, and the better you can understand how to create and utilize video content, the more dynamic learning opportunities will become.
Video best practices have been top of mind for the past few months, as we’ve been busy creating an event featuring education experts who will tackle these issues and more at The Video Show. This new conference and exhibition is scheduled for Dec. 4–5 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
The Video Show will feature more than 100 sessions on all kinds of content creation, as well as a screening room, demo areas, streaming studio and exhibit floor, covering every aspect of video content creation and distribution. Hear from representatives of schools, universities and programs about the technologies and workflows they’re using, and get inspired while learning how video can enrich the classroom experience.
Produced as part of The Video Show, the Video for Educators sessions are a must-attend for teachers, trainers and other professionals. Find a quick overview of the sessions below:
