A short video clip about how critical video is in providing authentic learning experiences that prepare work-ready students
Video evidence is a powerful tool that provides authenticity and evidence of what you don’t know you don’t know.
Now, based on everything that we’ve talked about, we see more and more that today’s universities are prioritizing and developing work-ready students. Brian, from your perspective, how does GoReact fit into that strategy, specific impacts, seeing in terms of supporting skills that are needed post graduation?
Brian J. Arnold:
Well, do we have an hour, right? I’m going to build on the discussion before about the question about general use. Why is this just a generally good tool? First of all, if you start with the fact that most people fear public speaking slightly more than death and that all of our students will probably have to interview for a job after this, it’s an opportunity to be forced to go on record and to be seen so that you can get feedback on the things you don’t know you don’t know. You don’t know you say, “Um,” all the time. You don’t know you touch your nose too much, whatever it is.
Regardless of the discipline, having that on record and having that practice is invaluable. In terms of moving forward, let’s just take a snapshot right now. We haven’t really talked the AI thing going on, but text is a little highly suspect right now with what’s going on. For now, being able to have video evidence can be a powerful tool for just sort of ensuring that we’re dealing with something that’s authentic. That being said, also just moving people from a mindset of text into a real world synchronous way of thinking and modality, it’s just a little bit of a shift in the way that we think and a little bit more applicable for the types of challenges that the students are going to face when they get to the real world, the virtual real world that they will inhabit shortly.
