Project-based learning with multimedia

SRI International's Center for Technology in Learning evaluated the Challenge 2000 Multimedia Project from 1995 to 2000.

This page is designed to offer the evaluation findings to specific audiences: Technology Coordinators and Administrators, Teachers, Students and Parents, Business Partners, and Researchers. There are also Quick Links to the full evaluation reports, slide presentations, research and evaluation tools, and related research into education and technology.

Participatory Video A Practical Approach to Using Video Creatively in Group Development Work

"Video can be a powerful tool for stimulating self-expression and interaction in group development work. Used in a participatory way, video encourages clients to examine the world around them, raising awareness of their situation and helping them to become more actively involved in the decisions which affect their lives. Based on an innovative approach researched over twelve years, Participatory Video offers a comprehensive guide to using video with groups.
The book includes over 60 step-by-step exercises, explaining clearly the procedure to follow, time needed and value of each activity. It provides basic information about video equipment and how to operate it, techniques for teaching skills to group members and advice on planning a series of workshops and longer-term video projects. Jackie Shaw and Clive Robertson place the use of video within a coherent theoretical framework and show how to maximise its effectiveness in groups with a range of different needs.
Participatory Video will be of particular interest to group leaders looking for new ways to enhance and amplify the group development process. It is aimed at a wide range of professionals, including social workers, youth and community workers, teachers, development educationalists, extension workers, therapists, community artists and video trainers."
