Digital Video and Screen Recording

How Can Teaching in Digital Age be Influenced by
the Digital Video and Screen Recording

Main Challenges of the Case

Digital video and recording become popular medium for accessing and stimulating information. To make a record screening must be simple. According to Leeder (2009) “educators using multimedia need to be thoughtful about the amount of information we’re providing through video and audio channels, and the pace at which we’re providing the information, to ensure that we’re giving students enough time to process it in ways that make sense to them. If we provide too much information at once, we cause cognitive overload, at which point our students shut down, lose interest, or otherwise simply stop learning” (p. 1).

The challenge is to balance this simplicity with our other needs: to cater different learning methods, to be accessible to hearing impaired students, and even to be entertaining. Instruction through multimedia is highly challenging, often frustrating, and extremely time-consuming, but when done well it can have a dramatic impact upon student learning (Leeder, 2009)

The Importance of the Technology

Thompson & Lee (2012) stated that “screencasting has been used as a teaching tool in a variety of fields, with mostly positive results reported, specifically in relation to providing students with information and creating additional avenues of access to teaching and materials” (p. 1). Video helps students and faculty to be more collaborative, it makes the learning more engaging, it makes education more flexible, it reaches people wherever they are, and serves people who are often left out when it comes to traditional teaching. It lets schools extend their reach beyond their walls to people who can’t be there in person (Kaltura, 2015).


How It Applies to My Country

Internet connection is a significant tool in using technologies in the class where the students may access the contents or online video lecture on the website outside the class. Indonesia has a great opportunity in implementing video/audio services for higher education for it has internet connection available. In my school, here in Manado, Indonesia has adequate internet facilities and it’s up to the teacher how he/she make use of these services. Therefore, it is no doubt that the use of technology in education becomes a significant factor to achieve students’ effective learning and teacher’s effective teaching in the twenty first century (Zainuddin, 2015).

Spiritual Connection

In the coming of Christ, we are all going to meet Him face to face and He will show to us our deeds while we are on earth. Books will open and all the record will be shown to the people. In Revelation 20:12, “ …as the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded”. Let us all do good, find us righteous and worthy to inherit the kingdom of God.
