I think video can be a powerful tool in the Library. I use book trailers in my library as a way to promote new books that are purchased, but also as a way to generate interest in books that students might otherwise ignore. I would love to use video of actual students at my school giving reviews of books. If I could combine that with QR codes, I think that would be super fun. Although students are allowed to have their own devices… you tube is blocked at our school. So, if I am to use QR codes, I will need to figure out ways to allow the kids to access those videos… if I embed the videos on my own page, will they be able to view them? I recently asked my tech guy to assign IP addresses to a couple of iPods that we have in the library so the kids could watch the book trailers… but maybe I can bypass that by embedding the videos in my own page. That would also help to increase traffic on my webpage.
I love video in the classroom and in the library, but there are many issues to navigate. Both access and content are issues that I think we will need to deal with more and more frequently as time passes and students have access to their own devices.
