How to include closed-captioning on DE videos ...
DE...how to save CC videos...(from DE training Jan 2012).doc
NOTE: Not all DE videos are set up for closed captioning.
Why is this a good idea?
This allows students to access information in different ways--listening, seeing, & reading.
English language learners
, this can be especially helpful as they try to understand information/stories in a second language.
You might want to allow them to preview the video (with the closed-captions) before you show the video to the whole class. In this way they will be familiar with the material and may be able to understand more of the teacher's instruction during the lesson.
