DVD in the classroom

In their article, Nick Lacey and Roy Stafford give detailed information on DVDs, how to handle them and the advantages they bring to classroom teaching. "So, for example, on the Sony/Columbia Tri-Star disk of 'Lola rennt' ('Run, Lola, Run'), it is possible to show the same sequence in German, subtitled in English, 'dubbed' into English without subtitles, in German with German subtitles (useful for German language students)?" Compared to other media, such as VHS cassettes, DVDs are much easier to handle and offer more flexibility, the authors argue. They consider them a useful tool in media education at school.

Digital Ethnography, a Vision of Students Today

This blog is maintained by a Kansas State University working group led by Dr. Michael Wesch dedicated to exploring and extending the possibilities of digital ethnography.

In 2007 Dr. Michael Wesch and a group of students of Kansas State University published two videos. They introduce themselves as: “a Kansas State University working group led by Dr. Michael Wesch dedicated to exploring and extending the possibilities of digital ethnography.” The video “A Vision of Students Today” gives a look into what students are really using technology for… where students are really spending their time: http://mediatedcultures.net/ksudigg/?p=119Related:
- Showcase / Mediated Culture, http://mediatedcultures.net/mediatedculture.htm
- video of 2007, summarizing some of the most important characteristics of students today - how they learn, what they need to learn, their goals, hopes, dreams, what their lives will be like, and what kinds of changes they will experience in their lifetime. The video was created by Michael Wesch in collaboration with 200 students at Kansas State University: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGCJ46vyR9o&feature=player_embedded

Technology, Video Gaming, and the Future of Schools

"Literacy In Digital Technology Is The New Generation Gap"
K-12 schools often find themselves resisting the latest technologies in order to preserve their existing methods of teaching and learning. When students begin to use cell phones, iPods, instant messaging, social networking sites, or massively multiplayer gaming, schools often respond with bans and filters to restrict student use. But students don’t stop finding innovative uses for the new technologies--they just do it outside of school. As a result, teachers and school leaders keep the integrity of their instructional programs but continue to fall behind the technological learning curve, and find it more difficult to integrate new learning tools in their classrooms.

Teachers TV

Teachers TV was the digital channel for everyone who works in schools. Its programmes covered every subject in the curriculum, all key stages and every professional role – from teaching assistant to headteacher. You could watch it on digital cable and satellite and programmes are also available anytime, on-demand and for free on this website. Sadly, along with many other well-known UK agencies active in the education and training sphere including Becta, Teachers TV has fallen foul of cutbacks in UK spending. From the end of March 2011 this terrific source of free education videos and resources aimed at the professional development of teachers has no longer been available.

Luckily its resources are now available on
- TES: http://www.media-and-learning.eu/resource/tes-connect-video-resources
as well as other repositories:
- Promethean Planet: http://www.prometheanplanet.com/en-gb/professional-development/best-prac...
- Teachers Media: http://www.teachersmedia.co.uk
- SchoolsWorld: http://www.schoolsworld.tv/videos
