Viewing Michigan's Digital Future: Results of a Survey of Educators' Use of Digital Video in the USA
Learning, Media and Technology Volume 34, Number 3, ISSN 1743-9884
Digital video is a growing and important presence in student learning. This paper reports the results of a survey of American educators in Michigan (n = 426) conducted in spring 2008. The survey included questions about educators' attitudes toward the streaming and downloadable video services available to them in their schools. The survey results showed that educators mainly used digital video to introduce and to conclude learning experiences. These educators, who predominantly used the Web-based "unitedstreaming"[TM] digital video service, relished the service's content breadth, short clips and potential to foster instructional innovation. However, many survey respondents reported concerns about internet connection bandwidth, projection capabilities and lack of end-user control over on-demand download and manipulation. Educators viewed school-level Information and Communications Technology policies, bandwidth capacity and lack of support personnel as the causes of these difficulties. Because little research has been done on the implementation of digital video services in US schools, the conclusions of this study may provide direction for educators, researchers and policy-makers who use a variety of digital video platforms and services.
