“I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.”
John 17:14-19, 24 KJV
Does the world hate you because you share the word. Word is truth.
Does the world hate you because you share the truth?
While the statement “talking isn’t training” might be obvious to many who teach as part of their work role, you’d be surprised how many agree with this statement, yet, still talk ‘at’ their students!
Sure talking is fine if your students understand the terminology and context of the training material, or already have some familiarity with what is being shared.
But in the case of teaching a senior citizen, for example, how to make a call on a smartphone that they have never used before, a visual demonstration or video might be a more effective method than talking alone.
Video isn’t always the answer, but for some it can be an effective supplement or follow-up to a hands-on demonstration.
Seems obvious right, but during the next week pay attention to the many opportunities you see where video could quickly communicate far more effectively that words alone – let me know what you see.
And, if you’d like help getting your video training project started, let me know 🙂
Years ago, when our family first purchased iPhones, I started exploring voice recorder applications to replace my use of separate devices (like Olympus WS-110). I started using Griffin iTalk initially, but when I started having some reliability issues late last year, which I’m sure they have resolved by now, I moved to Alon Software’s Dictaphone and my favorite, DropVox .
A month ago, I started talking to fellow Fizzler David Bilbrey, who, like me, enjoys listening to podcasts. When we met recently we talked about starting a regular discussion about Permaculture, Sacred Economics, photography, coaching and accountability, but do all this as a live recording for later reflection, editing and publishing.
So I was showing David yesterday about DropVox and decided to make this quick video to demonstrate the workflow I use from my iPhone, through to DropBox then to titling in iTunes before publishing on Podbean. Enjoy!
