article about the usage of video in a primary school
"ArtisanCam is a free interactive web site which introduces children (mainly 7-14 year old pupils) and their teachers to the world of contemporary visual art.
ArtisanCam provides an insight into the lives of contemporary artists. Using a mixture of video and interactive activities, we introduce children to the world of contemporary visual art before encouraging them to have a go themselves in fun and exciting ways.
The website is divided into the Artists Zone, which contains classroom-based activities and the Activity Zone, which is full of games and fun interactive activities, designed to encourage children to continue their learning at home.
ArtisanCam has been designed to help teachers deliver a creative curriculum and inspire young artists of the future. All of our activities support the national curriculum in specific areas at Key Stage 2 and 3." This web site also offers very detailed information for lesson plans such as targeted learning goals.

And if you log in, you can access media resources for education.
On the Digital Storytelling section (http://dsi.kqed.org/index.php/inspirations) you can find out more about
* Annual Digital Storytelling Contest and Festival for high school students
* Featured Projects such as youth stories from South Africa created at the 5th World Summit on Media and Children.
* Digital Storytelling: Watch stories, explore narrative, investigate new technologies and check out resources that have to do with digital storytelling. Including Mobile Projects such as "'Scape the Hood", the first gps-enabled mobile media project:
"Scape the Hood was conceived and designed as a locative storytelling project for the Digital Storytelling Initiative at KQED for the opening of the 8th annual Digital Storytelling Festival. We convened a group of storytellers, artists, and technologists to envision what this project could be. It became a narrative archeology experiment, combining digital storytelling and emerging technology by overlaying a virtual landscape on the physical world. As originally designed, the audience walks the streets and listens to the neighbourhood stories, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells from both the physical and the virtual world."

Action! In the Classroom: A Guide to Student Produced Digital Video in K-12 Education
Today's students are attracted to video and readily engage in any project that incorporates the medium. Digital video is easier to manipulate and much less expensive than analog video. Students can create video content and the software can be taught in less than one hour. There is great potential to employ student-produced video as an educational tool and this book explains and instructs teachers how to exploit this potential.
This comprehensive work, divided into four sections, covers all aspects of video production including: foundation concepts; the video production process; equipment review; and an appendix. The companion Web site offers downloadable forms used in the book and support presentation material.

Using Video in Teacher Education, Volume 10 (Advances in Research on Teaching)
This book features contribution from people who have developed and used video in teacher education. The focus is on video as opposed to other technology (e-mail, etc.) and its use in teacher education. The video can be stored on videotapes, CD-Rom, DVD, or computer drives, and it can be used in either preservice or inservice teacher education/professional development programs.
Contributors explain the nature of the video they use in their teacher education programs or courses and talk about how they use it, focusing in particular on principles for: (1) making the videos (decisions about how and what to capture on video, the degree to which the teaching should be scripted, whether it should be shown uninterrupted or segmented and edited, and so on), and (2) principles for using the video in the teacher education program (why and how it is used at what points in the program, how viewings are structured and scaffolded by the teacher educator, and so on).
