I gave the students an extra day to view the lesson, so they would have time to do the task and come back with any questions. I also gave out French money as a reward for those who took notes AND did the task. I discovered there were students who only did the task and did not take notes, write a date, or title. Looking at the work this way, it didn't make much sense, even if the student did the work correctly. I emphasized good note-taking. It's a good practice. The kids pointed out that the video was still accessible and that they could view it again. I pointed out that wifi may not be available and the video might disappear. At least they would have their notes.
I might be old-school, but I still think there is a mental process that happens when we take notes, where we are more conscious about what it is we are learning. Well, it can be for most, anyway.
