EduTube Educational Videos
With a slogan as "EduTube Educational Videos - find the best videos on the web in one place" EduTube focuses on educational videos, which are linked from other video repository sites such as YouTube, MetaCafe, … so this web site is actually a collection of linked and embedded educational videos. Uploading to this site isn't possible, which is a difference with sites such as YouTube.
Our goal is to challenge abusive stereotypes and other biased images commonly found in the media. Media Watch, which began in 1984, distributes educational videos, media literacy information and newsletters to help create more informed consumers of the mass media.
Ivy Film Festival
"The Ivy Film Festival encourages the creative efforts of undergraduate and graduate student filmmakers by acting as a quality venue for their work and by creating opportunities to learn from one another and talented professionals. The festival strives to garner recognition for student filmmakers by means of a panel of celebrity judges including: directors, producers, writers, and agents who will view the top films from the festival."
IFF has the following competitions:
- Domestic Film Competition
- Screenplay Competition
- International Film Competition
- Machinima Competition
Planet SciCast (UK) is an online repository that shares videos, sent in by children and adults, related to Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM) and awards the best videos in the annual SciCast Film Awards. It is aimed at young people from 8 years old up - or even younger if they are ready to make a film, but also invites teachers and professional scientists to send in movies. Video submitters and teachers can also access additional information such as a handbook (http://www.planet-scicast.com/film_school.cfm) about shooting a video, write-ups of the activities, experiments and demonstrations. SciCast states that making a film can be part of science lessons, or media studies, at home or in a science club.
The online videoclips range from songs that help memorising scientific facts, scientific experiments, demonstrations of difficult Physics concepts and more. They are freely available online and can be viewed at home and in class, where some teachers use the videoclips to illustrate science as lesson starters. The project helps to cement science knowledge - if you have to explain it to someone else, you have to understand it yourself.
