For hundreds of years, the written word has been the primary currency of education. It is the medium through which knowledge is recorded for the ages, and in which students are expected to demonstrate their learning. With few exceptions, success at school and at work requires fluency with the written word. It’s no surprise then that a great deal of our educational experience is focused on reading and writing. Although we take classes specifically focused on this area, nearly every other discipline contributes to our development as writers, as we write lab reports in biology or take written driver’s exams. Now, video is nipping at the heels of text, nudging in beside the written word in classrooms and training centers. Students, trainees, employees, and entrepreneurs are not just watching, but making video.
