Teaching with and Learning from the Video Essay.
Gotfredson, David; Engstrom, Erika
The merits of the video photo essay as a broadcast production teaching tool and as a genre of television news are examined in this paper. Suggestions are offered for using the video essay in the classroom, such as assigning students projects which involve producing a news story using only "nat-sound" and soundbites or music, and utilizing the video essay to recap newscast stories. Also discussed is the effectiveness of the video essay in terms of viewer recall of story information, which is enhanced by the video essay. It is concluded that the video essay as a form of broadcast news deserves further attention in research, in the teaching of broadcast production, and in the broadcast industry.
