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.

VIDEO Y EDUCACIÓN

¿Por qué hay que integrar el vídeo en la escuela? ¿Cómo ha de ser esta integración? ¿Qué concepción del vídeo debe sustentarla? ¿Qué funciones didáctica puede cumplir el vídeo? ¿Puede pensarse en unas fórmulas diferenciadas de uso en el aula? Respondiendo a estas y otras cuestiones, el libro Vídeo y educación pretende contribuir a una reflexión teoricopráctica sobre la integración del vídeo en el proceso de enseñanza aprendizaje. En el libro se analizan los motivos que justifican en realidad habría que decir que exigen la integración del vídeo, se pone el acento en lo audiovisual como forma diferenciada de procesamiento de las informaciones, se proponen modalidades diferenciadas de uso y una taxonomía de las diversas funciones didácticas que puede cumplir, se hacen propuestas metodológicas para el aprovechamiento de los programas didácticos en el aula, se propone igualmente un método para la realización de videogramas y unas pautas para su evaluación, se hacen sugerencias para el uso de la cámara, etc. Este libro es una segunda edición, corregida y aumentada, del que publicó la editorial Laia en 1988.

Creative activity and its impact on student learning - issues of implementation

(Abstract) The use of filmmaking as a creative learning tool within the academic curriculum has been pioneered at the University of Sheffield. Filmmaking has been found to promote a lively, exciting and challenging environment in the classroom. It produces highly motivated students and makes learning fun by giving them a sense of empowerment and achievement. Perhaps more importantly, it allows students to tap into their creativity and imagination - abilities identified by many as the passport to a successful future. This paper covers a number of examples which describe the benefits to student learning; these include close engagement with their subject leading to insight and deeper understanding, as well as a range of transferable skills. This successful practice is looked at in relation to issues of assessment, evaluation and cost. Using a methodological approach that employs qualitative feedback interviews with students as research data, as well as referring to the literature, it presents a case for sustainable implementation.

Top ten uses of video in education

The aim of "Top ten uses of video in education" is to highlight the range of innovative uses of digital video in education with reference to their relative pedagogical value. The ‘Top Ten’ is a populist format but the underpinning pedagogical approach was inspired by Uskov (2005) who in his National Science Foundation project “Technology for advanced e-learning” investigated the perceived value of among video among teachers and learners. As part of his advocacy for increased use of this media he referred to Edgar Dale’s ‘Cone of Experience’ (Dale, 1969), originally developed to highlight the role of media in learning. According to Dale’s intuitive model, learners learn better by “doing” rather than through more passive experiences such as reading and observing. “Learning by doing” is nowadays often termed “experiential learning” or “action learning”. At the narrow top of Dale’s cone are experiences such as reading which are furthest removed from real life. At the broad base of the cone are immersive, contextualized learning experiences (see Fig. 1).
