Shhh! What *Not* to Do When Teaching with Videos

My new article tells you the "right way" to teach with videos -- and one of those suggestions is to stop every now and then and comment on the action. I admit, this can be dangerous advice. Once you've gotten into the habit, it's hard not to talk through any movie you happen to be watching.

Of course, discussing a movie when you're watching it in a theater is impolite, to say the least. But my family loves to watch movies in a group, and analyze them afterwards (or during).

One way around that dilemma is to find a drive-in theater. With everyone camped in and around their own cars,  there's less chance of annoying your neighbors.

Another solution is to bring the audience to you. Make a bowl of popcorn, invite some friends, and hold your gabfest in the privacy of your living room.
