Teaching in a virtual classroom presents challenges for even the best teachers.  One such challenge is how to motivate our students while maintaining a learner-centered environment.  Video is a great way to open our students’ minds to possibilities and avoid the common syndrome of endless hours of talking heads.  Using video in our classrooms (whether virtual or not) is a skill that can be developed and used now in this new learning environment. 
In this session learn to use Stand Out life-skill videos and National Geographic videos at even the lowest levels to bring your instruction to life and reach students in an online environment.
