Teachers and students alike can now slow down every Flocabulary video to improve comprehension, focus on specific ideas and make it easier for students to read along!
1. How to Slow Down the Video
When the video begins, hover over and click on "Original Speed" in the upper right-hand corner to adjust the speed. "Slower" brings the video to 85% speed, and "Slowest" brings the video to 75% speed.
The speed adjustment box will disappear when you're watching the video so that it doesn't block the screen. When you move your mouse it will come back in view so you can change your selection.
2. Recommended Ways to Use the Speed Adjustment with your Students
