Very informative video. I have never used a clicker so this video was very helpful. The video could have been improved if you would have been more lively when explaining things, it sounded as though you were tired.
Good video! Loved the intro and your explanation on everything. Like my video we couldn't use a wii because we didn't have one so I understand why you wouldn't have been able to show us how to use one. Another suggestion would be to make sure the sound is good throughout the video.
I enjoyed the video. It gave detailed information about clickers. I also like the graphics that were used. They went extremely well with the information being discussed. A suggestion would be to speak louder. Also to add an ending to help summarize the video.
Really great video. I thought it was really engaging and well put together. I loved your intro and how you focused on its classroom applications. The only criticism that I can think of is that some of the pictures were a bit blurry. Other than that, great job.
Good job! I really liked the through presentation that you guys did and the pictures went well with the narration. I think that the video could have been more engaging and ended not so abruptly. But I really liked your video.
What a cool topic! I didn't know much about Clickers before your video. I really liked that you explained how Clickers work (all the technological info.). It showed that you really put quite a bit of research into the project. I also liked your transitions from text to clips. It broke up the sections of information nicely and I was able to focus better. May I suggest some sort of wrap-up at the end of the video before the credits. I think its nice to tie it all together. Maybe a bit of light music in the background might have been engaging. Other than that, this video stood out to me as one of best!
Great job!! I thought the intro was very grabbing, probably because who at UF hasn't had one of those HUGE classes? It was very easy to relate to. And I thought that pointing out to the audience that it gets everyone involved, which I think is very important in such large classes. On the down side, it would have been good to add some type of conclusion. Also, adding something to make it a little more engaging (like music maybe?) would have been nice. Good job!
Clickers are all fun and games until you get graded for your answers haha no but seriously the video made some great points about how even shy students can participate, how teachers can get the students in a large lecture hall engaged, how exactly the clicker functions, how it can work for sensitive subject matters or just quick opinions, so these are all important for education. I like how you mentioned the downfall of the clickers with the cost, being replaced by free pollmakers online and how teachers are still the center focus of the lesson and should use clickers appropriately. Two suggestions would be to improve the sound quality aka make it louder and maybe give some nice personal examples of when they were useful for you.
I thought that your presentation was very clear and quite informational. I learned quite a bit about clickers that I never knew (I've never had the chance to use them in a class). I also think you made a really good point about the downsides to them. They really are expensive. Some of my friends have had to get them at great personal costs and they later tell me that they barely used them anyways. I also see your point about how they are going out of style quickly due to internet and other wireless options. I might suggest adding some visual and audible interest. Some background music and variation of presentation style might make the presentation a little more attention grabbing. I would also suggest that when you edit, to remove more of the silent spaces in between your voice-overs. Maybe have someone read the question that appears on the screen to fill the big silence. Otherwise, great job.
Really nice video. One of the strongest features was your visual editing. The video just came together nearly seamlessly. Another aspect I appreciate was your inclusion of both the positives and negatives involved with clickers and some information about the next generation systems using tablets. One improvement I would make is to edit the audio just a little bit more, maybe one or two moments where it wasn't perfect. Another would be to do a video tutorial on clickers, like a video of someone in one of the classes at UF answering a question would have been interesting. Very great job!
I really like your video. I liked how you explained the educational uses for clickers and downsides of the clicker. I wish i could have seen how the clickers work in the classroom and sometimes the sound quality was a little low.
I can definitely relate to the first part of your video, and, after your video, I really do see clickers as a great solution to feeling that way as a student. The pictures of students using th clickers in the classrooms was a great touch. It shows how accessible clickers are. I noticed come awkward silences throughout teh videos, and I think some musci could have helped that. The photos also moved very slowly and bore me after multiple seconds of a slow moving screen.
Great job. I really enjoyed your presentation.
Things I liked...
1. I liked that you really explained how clickers worked. With the signal and infrared stuff... very cool.
2. I liked how you showed that the clicker can be a great tool to get everyone involved.
3. I liked that you discussed how the clicker may not be something that stays around forever. I also liked that you talked about the downsides of the clicker. A lot of people talked about the positives of our technological tools, but I don't know if anyone else talked about its downfalls. You also brought up a good point about the clicker being only as good as the teacher implementing it. It needs to be used correctly in order to be successful in the classroom.
Some constructive criticism...
1. The volume changed throughout the video. It wasn't too distracting though.
2. Some of the pictures were a little fuzzy.
You guys did a great job explaining the educational implications of clickers. I liked how you not only included the benefits but also the downsides of clickers, such as its cost, I don't think a college student wants to spend $20-30 on a remote control. I also enjoyed the images that were used because they were engaging and relevant to the topic at hand.
My only constructive criticisms are: perhaps adding a hook at the beginning to really captivate your audience from the start, as well as, adding a better wrap up for your conclusion.
Overall, great job! :)
Your video was very informative. I especially liked how you mentioned the importance of using clickers effectively. I've mostly seen clickers used just for attendance purposes, but I learned how else clickers can be used effectively in the classroom. I think you could have added a couple video clips or music to spice it up a little bit, and you also could have added a conclusion to wrap it all up. Overall, you did a great job!
I really enjoyed watching your presentation about clickers in the classroom! It was very informative and I actually changed my opinions about clickers after watching the video. I haven't had a class that uses clickers and I thought I was lucky but this presentation showed me the benefits of using clickers. I liked how you explained the idea that it gets all students and engaged and gives even shy students a chance to voice their opinion. I now think clickers are a great idea for big classrooms and even smaller ones too. Also, the way you organized the video was well done and helped convey the message you meant to get across.
A couple points of constructive criticism: There could have been more in the video to keep it engaging. Music, videos, or better transitions would have been a good idea. Also, some sort of conclusion (visual and through the audio narration) would have been nice rather than just jumping strait to the page of listed resources.
Nice job overall though, thanks for the info!
I enjoyed watching your video! I thought that you did a great job explaining how to use clickers in the classroom for different types of learning and teaching. I also thought you did a good job explaining how and why they may become obsolete in the near future. One suggestion would be to actually demonstrate using a clicker. Another suggestion would be to add music to the video to make it more engaging. Overall, great job!!
I really liked your video. I think clickers are a great, interactive way to keep students engaged in the classroom. I thought you had a good opening and explained well the many different ways clickers can be used in the classroom. I would have liked to see you actually use one, but I understand you probably don't own them. I think it would have been a little more entertaining if you added music to the background. Overall, I think you did a great job!
I really enjoyed your 5x7 presentation. One thing I liked about your video was your explanation of the educational implications of clickers. It was very well done and extremely informative. I also liked the organization of your video. The pictures were interesting, the narrations were informative, and the topics that you covered were very well organized.
One thing that could improve your video is a demonstration of how clickers work. Since they have so many educational implications, a demonstration of clickers in the classroom would give the viewer an opportunity to see these educational implications in action. Another thing that could improve your video is more video clips. Video clips would make your video more engaging and entertaining for the viewer.
