Video: Optimal Conditions
Duration: Approximately 45 minutes
Using the technique of “scrubbing” video, students move back and forth within the video while the file is still open. This is a common technique used by scientists in fields from psychology to biology to physics—any domain where raw, unedited video might be used to capture data. Of course, scrubbing is used in other fields, such as media production.
Students learn two vital research skills: Cornell note-taking and video scrubbing.
Students also learn more about the needs of a species within its habitat.
- While headphones work well when students work individually, they don't work for pairs of students. Consider investing in a class set of headphone splitters that turn one audio jack into two.
