Abstract

A push has been made over the past decade to utilize “short and sweet” media clips in the classroom to engage students with the material while being cognizant of shortening attention spans. While useful, short clips often lack depth and are often unable to connect topics across lessons. Longer video clips often have depth, but students may not be as engaged with the material. This paper presents a method of “breaking” longer clips into smaller clips to account for potential attention deficits and integrates classroom discussion in the middle of videos to engage students with the material.
