Why use video resources in your teaching?
The use of audio-visual material in classrooms is nothing new. Who can forget overhead projectors with their slippery slides, fuzzy focus and blown bulbs? However, since then the technology and the content have improved immeasurably. Today’s digital natives readily engage with video, reaping the benefits of its ability to communicate on both a cognitive and emotional level. While textbooks take a linguistic approach to learning, audio-visual utilises sight, sound, colour and movement, inspiring deeper learning, better retention and reinforced motivation.
New Zealand history will be taught in all schools and kura from 2022. The curriculum changes will ensure all learners are aware of key aspects of our history and how they have influenced our nation. The Minister of Education, Chris Hipkins, noted recently that that there is not enough support for teachers and there is a lack of resources for them to draw on.
ETV already has a significant amount of catalogue content, as well as many videos that we host for Archives NZ, which are available at no cost. From building the road through the Haast Pass, to the Wahine disaster, there is an eclectic range of content
