EduTubePlus: Virtual Workshop on Creating Your Own Video
A series of online modules for creative and curious teachers who are keen on integrating video in their classroom activities. You will learn in a number of simple steps how you can complement your learning and teaching activities with (moving) images. Moreover, you will also learn how you can create these materials yourself so that they are fit for use.
This workshop was created in the framework of the EduTubePlus project (www.edutubeplus.info) along with face-to-face training sessions that took place in 2009 and 2010. The lesson plans that are mentioned in the workshop are only accessible to EduTubePlus portal users.
The EduTubePlus project aims to develop a European hybrid, multilingual video-based service for schools. This service will integrate thousands of multi-lingual curriculum-related video-clips by major European educational TV & video providers, with tools enabling educators to enrich the library with user-generated clips. The EduTubePlus service will enable users to develop, translate and share video-based learning scenarios and lessons, to search resources using terms related to their national curriculum and to use video in a pedagogically relevant manner in-class.
The EduTubePlus service will come about as a result of the effective adaptation, extension and integration of existing digital educational video resources and services, robust technical solutions, pedagogical knowledge, best practices and success stories.
This is what you can expect in those modules:
- Introduction - What do you need when making videos?

Man möchte einen Einblick in das Leben bekommen…
Daily soaps have been an important part of Germany’s television market for over 10 years and have been developing a large fanbase. Especially children and youth are watching the destinies of their soap heroes every day – this contributes considerably to the socialisation of the adolescents. How does school deal with that phenomenon? This text describes a project about youth working creatively with tv series and starting their own series production.

The Nature of Interaction in Educational Videoconferencing
This is a Master of Education thesis from 1999 by Carol Daunt. The study investigated the nature of interaction that can be achieved in educational videoconferencing and what adaptations (if any) to teaching and learning strategies are necessary. In particular it examines the following:
1. What impact does the technology have on the interactions?
2. Do lecturers have to make adaptations to teaching strategies?
3. Do students have to make adaptations to learning strategies?
4. Can a ‘dialogical’ approach be used effectively in videoconferencing?

Virtual video workshop Découvrir les médias numériques : applications pédagogiques et techniques de production
This French virtual video workshop has been designed to reflect the structure, the content and the spirit of face-to-face workshops, covering both the pedagogical applications of digital media and the production techniques required to design, film, edit and deliver digital media online.
The rich media approach - combining video material, photographs, synchronised slides and downloadable supporting documents - gives participants a feel of what it is like to design and produce digital media for teaching and learning and provides them with the opportunity to complete their own practical work. The virtual workshop can be consulted and followed as autonomous study material, or can be integrated into a tutored online course.
The different modules cover:
1) an introduction to the VideoAktiv project and the workshops in general
2) a panorama of examples of how digital media and video in particular can be used for teaching an learning
3) an in-depth study of the various pedagogical concepts behind the use of digital media
4) useful tips for filming, from preparing a storyboard to handling a camera
5) the basics of editing digital media
6) publishing your video online
7) practical exercises: supporting documents to help participants define and realise their project, illustrated with extracts from the face to face workshop showing participants working in groups on their own projects.
