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.

* 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."

Teaching Intermedia Literacy Tools (TILT)
TILT (Teaching Intermedia Literacy Tools) works within schools and community-based programs to teach young people the fundamentals of moviemaking and media literacy through hands-on training in video production. Programs equip young people with the tools to critically understand media messages and to create their own alternative media. Through a combination of technical training and hands-on experience we give students the means to gain a meaningful voice in media and to tell their own stories.
