Session description

Microlearning puts the learner in charge of what and when they learn while delivering knowledge in brief, focused spurts. Frequently, it takes the shape of short video stories. In this presentation, we'll focus on how educators can use Flip to produce these creative, fun and engaging stories/lessons.

Purpose & objective

GenZ is the first generation that has never lived without technology. It perceives Google, Instagram, and cellphones as more than just practical tools; GenZ sees them as essential components of daily life. They expect to be online and have access to information at all times. Students in Generation Z desire fast feedback on homework, just like they do on social media, and seek independent learning as well. Students want to have control over what they learn and how they demonstrate what they know.

As a technique for teaching and delivering knowledge in brief, focused bursts where students are in charge of what and when they study, "Microlearning" matches GenZ's unique needs. Frequently, it takes the shape of short videos.
Microlearning videos are successful because they give students the chance to quickly complete single lessons or micro-courses and apply what they have learned. Retention rates are greatly improved by the rich media format of video.

This presentation focusses on how educators can use EdTech tools like the forever free Flip with it's rich camera features to produce creative video stories, ensuring that learning is fun & engaging for all learners.
