[INFOGRAPHIC] The Impact of Video in Education

October 4, 2012 - 2 Comments

According to Cisco’s most recent Visual Networking Index (VNI) report, video now accounts for more than 50% of all consumer Internet traffic. By 2013, 91 percent of global Internet traffic is forecast to be video. Through my work with government and education leaders from around the globe, I believe that video technologies are now viewed as a fundamental catalyst for driving education transformation in schools and universities worldwide.   Which is why I am proud to introduce a new infographic based on  Cisco’s newest thought leadership research: ” Preparing Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s Challenges: The Impact of Video in the Education.”

The infographic provides a visual summary of the research report on the impact of video in education, how to strategically adopt video technologies into teaching and learning, and how to best guide students in the development of 21st century skills to prepare them for their role as global citizens. I truly believe it’s a perfect moment for educators everywhere to re-assess their use of video and to make the key decisions about how best to incorporate it into their students’ learning experience.

How will you transform your classrooms with video technologies?
