When we need to know how to do almost anything, it seems like we can find a video online showing us each step. We can learn to repair a bicycle, cook a gourmet meal, or tie a bowtie. But what about how to get the most out of your Personal Study Guide or Leader Pack?
We wanted to create a set of videos that would give you just that. Over the past weeks, we have been creating simple videos that explain how to get the most out of the Explore the Bible resources. These videos are now available.
Ways of using these videos
- To help you show others how to use the resources. As the leader, people look to us to help them know how to use the resources we provide. We can find it a challenge to keep up with what is available and how it all works. These videos give us as the leader a way for us to stay up to speed with how to use the Explore the Bible resources so we can in turn explain it to the people we lead.
- Provide the video to our teachers and leaders. We may want our teachers and leaders to also be experts on helping the class or group they lead use the resources well. They can help the class or group then better use the resources, making that teacher or leader a hero. This gives us another opportunity to help our teachers and leaders earn trust with the people they lead.
- To help recruit new teachers and leaders. One way to help assure a potential teacher or leader is communicate that they will have resources they can use and that will give them what they need. Providing a link to the resource that potential teacher or leader will use can help ease that person’s mind about the tools available and how those tools can help them succeed.
- Encourage everyone to view an appropriate video. Think about the number of times we provide a resource to someone and then expect them to read the content inside the book to figure out how to use it. We may point them to the accompanying How to video as another way of helping them better use the resource. Some group members may gain a deeper appreciation for what is provided. Others learn about a feature that helps them be a better Bible student. A teacher may find that one nugget that makes them a better teacher.
