BYOL-This presentation will highlight useful strategies for increasing students' deep, meaningful learning with online videos, as informed by our research with videos to teach internet safety to adolescent learners.

The increasing presence of Internet as a communication tool among adolescents has raised concerns in parents, teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders about the safety of adolescents' online behaviors. Studies show that 84% of the adolescents have used some form of the Internet (e.g., instance messaging, texting, etc.) for their social communication.

Research also suggests that the Internet has become a vulnerable place where adolescents frequently are targeted by sexual predators in cyberspace.

As a result, non-profit organizations and educational institutions nation and worldwide (e.g., Latvian Internet Association's Internet Safety project, Utah Education Network's NetSafe project) are developing educational materials for youth about Internet safety. Education efforts surrounding internet safety are especially challenging because they must develop deep knowledge about online behaviors that students will transfer to new situations outside of the classroom. We studied the differences between individuals and dyads in learning the video content using shallow and deep questions and prompts.

Preliminary results demonstrate that meaningful learning about Internet safety can be promoted by drawing upon learning science research that employs high-level prompts and collaborative models to encourage deep thinking. We will discuss the implications of these findings for teaching with video content.
