Summary

Czech, Zwald. Whalen, and Czech (2006) showed how video clips can be a valuable classroom tool to teach ethical decision making. Moreover, Sweet (2007) suggests when working with the Millennial Generation, utilizing an EPIC (Experiential, Participatory, Image Rich and Connected) teaching style can help with connecting with students. Many in the education arena may see movie clips as “filler time” within the semester, the authors believe that motivational video (MV) can challenge students to be actively involved and serve as the focus for class discussions and assignments. The interaction, reactions, emotions, and body language that our students can observe in a MV can provide an important visual stimulus for understanding such concepts as: enhancing motivation, making correct choices, modelling character and enhancing self confidence (Myles, 2006). In addition, Dermer and Hutchings (2006) suggest that MV can be used as a listening tool which can enhance the listening experience for students. The purpose of this poster is to show the effectiveness of specific motivational videos when teaching Character and Ethics to youth at risk.

Evidence
