The filmmaker's toolkit

This toolkit provides practical help and inspiration for students and staff interested in making films. With manual: online or downloadable as PDF (33 pages).
* Video technology has become easier to use, more available and far cheaper than ever before. More and more people are making their own videos and publishing them on the web, as YouTube testifies. But how do you get beyond ‘point and shoot' and what is the relevance of video production to education?
* Digital Video can be used in a number of ways in the classroom and the case studies show examples of a wide range of applications, together with student comment and reflection.
* The toolkit gives an overview of the filmmaking process, from initial idea to equipment needed to burning your DVD. It has been developed over several years and provides information and points to consider when making a film with an educational application in mind.
* The filmmaker's toolkit (downloadable as PDF) can be used as a standalone resource, in combination with workshops, or it can be more fully embedded into the learning and teaching of specific modules.

Media Literacy Clearinghouse

A web site designed for K-12 educators who want to:
- learn more about media literacy
- integrate it into classroom instruction
- help students read the media
- help students become more media aware

Students in the director's seat: Teaching and learning across the school curriculum with student-generated video.

Several links and papers concerning student-developed digital video. Schuck, S. & Kearney, M. (2004). Students in the director's seat: Teaching and learning across the school curriculum with student-generated video. (This study was funded by a UTS Industry Links Research Grant with Apple Computers Australia. )

Project Description
This project investigated the value and use of student-generated digital video for enhancing pedagogy in K-12 schools. It aimed to identify, examine and analyse pedagogical practices in relation to use of this technology in five case schools. A further aim was to articulate the principles, contexts and approaches underlying these practices. An understanding of the practices and approaches which enhance or constrain pedagogy in these five cases will contribute to a future larger study. Principles of good practice developed in this study will be used to inform future research on models for enhancing pedagogy with digital video in education.

The Use of Video as a teaching resource in a new university

Abstract: This paper reports on a survey of the use of video as a teaching resource within one British University, drawing on evidence gathered during 1995 from fourteen Schools within its four Faculties. It identifies the factors and issues which influence the use of video in teaching, including management of video resources within the Schools; how video is used to support teaching strategies; and its perceived usefulness as a teaching resource. Findings note the extent to which video is used across the University; the factors that support or discourage its use; and the awareness and expectations that teaching staff have of video as a teaching tool. The discussion offers some recommendations as to how video use may be supported and improved within the University. The research could form the basis for a larger study to establish whether the findings from this survey may be typical of the picture in higher education generally.

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.

It's A Bit Like Star Trek': The Effectiveness of Video Conferencing

This paper presents an evaluation of the effectiveness of video conferencing as a teaching and learning medium within the area of early childhood studies. The methodology consists of questionnaires administered to the early years' tutors who taught on the course and to students in both Belfast and Armagh (remote site). Findings indicate that students at the remote site have developed learning strategies and skills for dealing with the video-conference lecture. Tutors have had to adopt a formal style of teaching and this has had an effect on how lectures are presented. Furthermore, it is recognized by tutors and students that a tutor needs to be present at the remote site in order to facilitate discussion and deal with questions and problems.
