MEDEAnet webinar “Multimedia eBook Creation in Schools”
Thanks to the multiple functionalities mobile devices like tablets and smart phones are offering it's becoming more easy to let students develop their own multimedia eBook in class and to let them become their own publisher.
During this one-hour webinar the speakers described what possibilities exist for teachers to let their students easily develop their own learning resources and what you should respect in terms of didactics and techniques when you start to implement eBook creation in your own class.
Andreas Sexauer from the Distance Learning Centre at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany) demonstrated the technical possibilities apps like the creative book builder are offering and how easy new learning material can be developed.
Our second speaker, Maurice Florêncio Bonnet from the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Education addressed the question on how teachers can integrate this new media tool in their class from a more didactical perspective compared to “traditional” learning material. This webinar was held in German.
This webinar is aimed at teachers, educators and trainers interested in introducing eBook production in their class.
It was held on 11 October at 4 pm and attended by 25 participants from 4 countries (Germany, Austria, Greece & USA)

Creating video in school: A collaborative learning activity
"Creating video in school: A collaborative learning activity" was presented at the eTwinning Ambassadors Online Conference on 18th October 2014.
Video has been used effectively in various educational contexts in multiple ways to support learning as a dynamic medium of visualization, narration, abstraction and recognition. Last years after the digital technology evolution, video can easily be used and produced in the classroom in order to record and analyze interactions, develop critical thinking, creativity and enhance collaborative learning.
This presentation focuses on designing and implementing learning collaborative activities towards the creation of video in the classroom and also on the ways to collaborate with a partner school through video production. Furthermore, basic concepts from film literature are presented and particular proposals for entwining schools’ collaboration based on best practices of using videos in school setting.
