When each student has access to a computer, what is best practice for viewing the videos? Individually or as a group using a projector?

I think watching the videos as a group is better. I’m currently a high school student (and intern at NGPF) and when all of the students have their own individual computers, I think it is inevitable to have students that start to browse the web. Hope this helps :)

When teaching in the classroom, I share the videos I have on my computer over a projector. Once the video is complete, we have a discussion about what we just watched. I do allow students to have laptops in my class so they can be doing work but it is impossible to keep them from browsing the web or checking social media. It is the cost of doing business when sharing video and allowing laptops in the class.

When classes are online, I share the videos in the assignment or discussion link. Students individually answer the question on the homework assignment or reply to the discussion thread with their comments. It can create a wealth of comments that help move the discussion forward.

Just from a practical standpoint, I know a lot of schools/districts block YouTube from everything but teacher accounts OR block YouTube entirely. In that case, teachers tell us their workaround is downloading the video on their laptop from home, and then playing that version (from their file, not streaming from the internet) projected on a screen at the front of the class.

For similar practicalities, if your wifi isn’t fast enough, having all of your students stream videos simultaneously may not be possible. Again, at that point, playing one copy at the front of the room typically makes the most sense.
