me too, I spend far too much time in front of the computer, and my comprehension of new material is better when I can close everything down and just concentrate on reading material. I can take my time, look back a couple of sentences to digest something, make notes in the margin etc.
I also teach in two classroom environments, one in a high school in other teachers classrooms for particular presentations. After 15 years of that, I don’t use ANY video. I observe the use use of video by other teachers and am not at all impressed by what happens there. But thats me. My other teaching environment is TaeKwonDo, for 22 years, purposely no written curriculum, it needs to be in your head other wise nothing is learned, its done by rote memorization, which I believe is really the best way to learn anything. Get the basics drilled into your head, then your mind is free to adapt to whatever the real situation is. We have a two time Olympian to prove it. We could teach the multiplication tables to 5 year olds in two hours and they would remember it 60 years later. Believe me. I am considered a renegade by the educational system, but they hire me on contract to work in highly unusual situations that no one else will do, so there you go.
I totally realize 90% will disagree with me and I have no problem with that.
Sorry for hijacking the thread. I will happily work with video if that whats there.
