ClickView and the Victorian Department of Education have partnered to provide all secondary and P-12 schools access to ClickView.
The Department was looking for a solution to provide high quality content to support the curriculum and further enable schools to boost student engagement through interactive learning.
With ClickView already being used in over 50% of Victorian schools, we look forward to assisting the state as a whole in driving learning outcomes through video.

It’s important that everything about ClickView is intuitive so teachers can find the most relevant videos for their classes, quickly and easily. At present, there are 1,194 videos in the primary library, 2,096 secondary library videos, and 2,269 videos in the PLUS and VET libraries. An abundance of high-quality educational videos is definitely a ClickView strength. This is why it’s so important that we are continually working on the platform, so that it always delivers the right videos to the right teachers.
With so many new video titles, along with additional features in the ClickView platform, our team set out to ensure that teachers can quickly find and identify the right videos for their classes.
This is ClickView 6.

One of things I love most about my job is how we get to work closely with educators to ensure that our product is on the right track and going to meet the needs of teachers and students. In fact, just a week ago, I sat down and had a face-to-face chat at the ClickView office with two flipped teachers about ClickView flipped channels. That one-hour meeting was extremely valuable because again we received direct feedback from educators and their suggestions have now influenced how we will further develop the product.

Assessing student learning plays a crucial role in establishing starting points and action for teaching. Within education circles, you will hear many explain that they are comfortable with diagnostic and summative assessment. However, the process of formative assessment often takes a backseat.
To highlight the importance of using a combination of assessment types, I make reference to a paper and definition that received widespread attention and was heavily circulated by educators: “The fundamental purpose of assessment is to establish where learners are in their learning at the time of assessment” (Masters, 2013).

Some big news in the world of educational videos hit the airwaves last week – Zaption has been acquired by Workday and will “shut down” their service starting on 30th September 2016.
Over the last years, Zaption has done a stellar job in strengthening video’s place in education, whether it be the classroom or the office, in particular the development of their interactive video functionalities. We congratulate Zaption on their work and their exciting acquisition.
To current Zaption users, we would like to offer you a free trial of the ClickView platform so you can continue to make interactive videos. Continue reading “ClickView: The Zaption Alternative for Interactive Videos”

When I was teaching one of the most frustrating aspects of planning for a class was ensuring I was targeting each lesson effectively, ensuring all students were able to grasp the content and express understanding despite the level they were at.
Checks for learning at the end of preceding classes would help, but they were undermined by the time-pressures to move along whether or not all students had grasped the lesson’s objective. Continue reading “Boost Student Outcomes through Targeted Teaching”
As teachers in a 21st century classroom we are discouraged from utilising the conventional ‘chalk and talk’ method, which simply fills our students’ brains with knowledge. Instead of teaching students ‘what’ to think, we are now implored to ignite a spark of curiousity and teach them ‘how’ to think. These higher order thinking skills are necessary for students to break through the saturated nature of our current ‘information age’.
