INgeBEELD

CANON Cultuurcel of the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training launched the INgeBEELD project (INgeBEELD means “in images” or “imaginary”). INgeBEELD is divided into 4 seperate subprojects with different target audiences.

INgeBEELD 1 (3-8 years) familiarises young children with the different building blocks of audio-visual media through five short films and engages pupils in how to look at things and communicate about the experiences. INgeBEELD 2 (6-14 years) aims to bring about the delivery of audio-visual teaching at school that is adapted to the living environment of different age groups.

It focuses on experimental film, video art and shorter audio-visual creations and introduces the basic principles of network culture and the new media. In these tasks, various media are integrated that are now omnipresent: mobile phone, mp3 player, computer games. INgeBEELD 1 and 2 are delivered in boxes with materials such as richly-illustrated textbooks, prints/drawings and photo materials, enriched with digital materials such as online assignments and DVDs with animations, cartoons, video. Young people learn to creatively express themselves by making music and sounds, drawing, playing drama and using video

INgeBEELD 3 (12-18 years) is a website that contains 4 modules, challenges and materials for all types of secondary education. Teachers can find many ideas and have access to any audio-visual tool to set up or complete their activities.

INgeBEELD4 (for teachers in training and in practice) is in a test phase and plans to make these teachers multimedia literate via a ‘media wisdom’ platform. Visitors discover the possibility of working (themselves) on this via five different worlds consisting of audiovisual clips, films and games, all connected with each other. Indirectly students and schools can then benefit from the media wisdom.

The platform on media wisdom was created in Dutch, but some of the content is in English (or translated). English versions of some clips on the platform are also available on youtube at Ambrosia’s tafel channel: www.youtube.com/user/ambrosiastafel

Teaching Youth Media : A Critical Guide to Literacy, Video Production, and Social Change

This book explores the power of using media education to help urban teenagers develop their critical thinking and literacy skills. Drawing on his twenty years of experience working with inner-city youth at the acclaimed Educational Video Center (EVC) in New York City, Steven Goodman looks closely at both the problems and possibilities of this model of media education.

Responding to our national concern about adolescents, literacy, media, and violence,Teaching Youth Media:

* Describes the changes schools and after-school programs need to make in order to create a media education that empowers students to change their world.
* Explores the intersection of literacy and culture as youth learn to analyze information from a variety of sources, including television, newspapers, books, films, school, church, and lives outside of school.
* Features case studies of students and teachers engaged in making video documentaries at EVC and in an alternative high school.
* Illuminates the practical day-to-day challenges faced by professional developers and teachers working to change the way education is practiced in their classes and schools.
* Looks at the profound "disconnect" that results when teachers and curriculum fail to recognize the social and cultural contexts in which urban students live.
* Explores the critical thinking and technical video arts skills students develop as they learn to collaboratively conduct interviews, research, shoot, log, and edit their documentaries.

Center for Digital Storytelling - listen deeply, tell stories

"The Center for Digital Storytelling is a California-based non-profit 501(c)3 arts organization rooted in the art of personal storytelling. We assist people of all ages in using the tools of digital media to craft, record, share, and value the stories of individuals and communities, in ways that improve all our lives.

Many individuals and communities have used the term "digital storytelling" to describe a wide variety of new media production practices. What best describes our approach is its emphasis on personal voice and facilitative teaching methods. Many of the stories made in our workshops are directly connected to the images collected in life's journey. But our primary concern is encouraging thoughtful and emotionally direct writing."
