A Single Standard Needed for digital video content and delivery


Beekman and Pisarski call for a single standard needed for digital video content. This call seems useful on the surface. I support keeping things simple. A single standard would make things more simple for teachers, someday when it would be available.

I don’t understand how a single standard will necessarily promptly increase student learning one measured unit. Some teaching techniques will yield prompt increases. Increased student learning is the single standard for education, and the single agreed upon expectation for every student in every school in the U.S. It is the dependent variable in the grand experiment of educating every child. Video content is important and useful, but not needed to yield these increases.
