Schools, colleges and universities around the world are using video technologies as a fundamental agent in the process of education transformation. A new white paper commissioned by Cisco and conducted by Wainhouse Research concludes:
In concert with global macro-economic changes and the growth of social interconnectedness worldwide, education is undergoing a major shift, as brick-and-mortar classrooms are opening up to rich media content, subject matter experts, and to one another. This shift has been influenced largely by technological and pedagogical trends, greater worldwide access to the Internet, an explosion of mobile phone users, and the appreciation for these technologies by young people, as well as by teachers. Video appears poised to be a major contributor to the shift in the educational landscape, acting as a powerful agent that adds value and enhances the quality of the learning experience.
Listen as Michael Stevenson, Cisco VP of Global Education introduces this important new white paper entitled, “The Impact of Broadcast and Streaming Video in Education -- What the Research Says and How Educators and Decision Makers Can Begin to Prepare for the Future”.
The white paper and executive summary draws on multiple studies and summarizes the positive impact of video in education including:
- Grades and performance
- School readiness
- Student’s collaborative abilities
- Overall academic development
- Workforce preparation
In addition, the report showcases real-world examples such as Pymble Ladies College and Duke University, who are successfully implementing effective models of video enabled teaching and learning.
Our hope is that this white paper will serve as a useful resource and catalyst for educators, administrators, decision makers and education stakeholders, to use video technologies as powerful enablers and complementary tools for achieving high-quality 21st century learning.
