I gave this workshop at the Mid-Atlantic Conference for Catholic educators in Baltimore on February 27, 2014. The purpose of the workshop was to show the what, when, where, how, and why for using clips and topic appropriate YouTube videos within classroom teaching, especially for religious education and character education.

The  story-­‐tellers  in  a  culture     own  the  culture   •  By  appreciaPng,  quesPoning,  engaging  in  those   stories  we  become  parPcipants  in  that  culture   •  As  parPcipants  we  walk  in  the  shoes  of  others   •  Learn  empathy   •  And  character   •  The  media  makers  of  tomorrow  are  in  our  pews,   living  rooms,  and  classrooms  today

Why?   A  well  chosen,  topic  centered  media  (story)    can   •  Present  a  topic   •  Extend  learning  beyond  the  textbook   •  Integrate  learning:  presentaPon,  reinforcement,  review   •  Correspond  to  different  learning  styles   •  Build  interest  in  the  topic   •  Provide  learning  variety   •  Connect  a  topic  over  Pme  if  snow  days  or  vacaPon  days   break  up  learning   •  Provide  teachable  moments    

If the media experience is connected to the learning the medium can reach the whole person •  Mind:    thoughts,  truth,  creaPvity   •  Heart:    emoPons,  feelings   •  Will:    behavior,  character,  choices,  decisions
