We often use video to bring science from the real world into our classrooms, but how can we ensure that students are learning from these videos? Derek Muller has a great TED talk about what makes up a science video that truly helps students learn science concepts – https://youtu.be/RQaW2bFieo8

He talks about the misconceptions that students often have about common science concepts. Muller’s video site – Veritasium https://www.youtube.com/user/1veritasium – has a great series of videos which shed light on common science misconceptions through discussion – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL772556F1EFC4D01C

David Rosen from World Education also wrote an article on the Tech Tips for Teachers website about using a mind mapping tool to help students engage with science videos: http://techtipsforteachers.weebly.com/blog/watch-a-video-and-make-a-mind-map-with-coggle
