Untold Stories: Learning with Digital Stories (UntoldStory), is a project under the European Commission Lifelong Learning Programme focusing on the provision by public libraries and museums of informal learning opportunities for migrant communities in specific regions of four countries (Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany and Greece), through shared Digital Storytelling, utilising the potential of new Web 2.0 technologies.
Digital Stories usually entail the creation by an individual or group of a short ‘digital movie’ integrating images, text, and sound with narration.
Untold Stories enables individuals and groups from migrant communities to create, store, promote and share Digital Stories which reflect their experiences in their adopted country.
The website lists the stories in a repository and also provides a 'Toolbox' with 'Cookbooks' in several languages, which are in fact manuals: 'In order to help you with your digital story, our team has prepared a detailed manual that would guide you through the whole process of digital storytelling. This guide has information that covers the concept of storytelling itself as well as the technical aspects of it: images, sound,video edition, conversion to FlashVideo format.' One of those cookbooks is the English one: http://www.untoldstories.eu/eng/content/download/470/3990/file/COOKBOOK%...

"TeacherTube officially launched on March 6, 2007. Our goal is to provide an online community for sharing instructional videos. We seek to fill a need for a more educationally focused, safe venue for teachers, schools, and home learners. It is a site to provide anytime, anywhere professional development with teachers teaching teachers. As well, it is a site where teachers can post videos designed for students to view in order to learn a concept or skill."
The VideoAktiv Project
Videoaktiv offered face-to-face and virtual staff development workshops on digital media use for higher education. During the course of a VideoAktiv workshop, participants receive training and support in their practices of developing and delivering pedagogically sound media materials in their own teaching. The aim of VideoAktiv was to support practitioners in becoming visually literate using this exciting range of technologies and to learn to effectively use and develop audio visual resources with new digital technologies in ways that are aligned with what they want to achieve educationally.
It is a web site with many resources about creating and using audio and video material for educational purposes:
• Good Practices Database (with 50 examples)
• Downloadable Handbook
• 20 live workshops for teaching and support staff in Higher Education
• Virtual Workshops in several languages: English, French, Dutch (twice) and Spanish
• Papers, reports and external links
This project ran from October 1, 2004 to December 31, 2006 is granted by the European Commission under the Socrates/Minerva programme.
