Practical DV Filmmaking - 2nd Edition
"Written for the beginner, Practical DV Filmmaking guides you thorough the process of making a film with low-cost digital equipment: from development through to production, post-production and distribution. While the technical tools you need are fully explained, the book concentrates on filmmaking principles throughout, illustrating how these tools can be used to achieve stylistic approaches for innovative filmmaking. The book assumes no background knowledge in either technology or filmmaking and is divided into four key areas: development, production, post-production, distribution."

iMovie in Teacher Education
In preparing the next generation of teachers, we need to take seriously the responsibility of empowering teachers with tools to assist them in their continued professional growth and pursuit of teaching excellence. Preservice teachers should understand the impact digital video can have in placing children's voices in the forefront of educational decisions. Pre-service and practicing teachers alike can easily learn how to incorporate digital video into their classroom instruction through the use of tools like iMovie. Below are four different applications of iMovie used in a single elementary science methods course to prepare future teachers of science.
1) Introducing external artifacts, 2) Modeling of alternative teaching strategies, 3) Reviewing and reflecting upon shared events, and 4) Documenting learning or presentation of personal accomplishment
Learners as producers: Using project based learning to enhance meaningful learning through digital video production.
This paper discusses an initiative that utilised a combination of "Project based Learning" and a "Learning with Technology" approach. Project based learning emphasises group work and knowledge construction whereas learning with technology emphasises using technology as a tool to promote thinking. A Digital Video (DV) Camp project was organised at the Hong Kong Institute of Education with twenty teacher education students to explore how technology could enhance meaningful learning in a project based learning environment. The objective of the project was to investigate how students could learn with Digital Video technology through collaborative project based learning activities. The paper discusses how students utilised DV technology in small groups to produce two DV outputs - a one minute introduction of their group members and a three minute DV on a specific topic. Student feedback and evaluation was positive in relation to the approach and feedback was used to reorganise another DV camp in the subsequent year. Implications for the approach are discussed.

Project-based learning with multimedia
SRI International's Center for Technology in Learning evaluated the Challenge 2000 Multimedia Project from 1995 to 2000. The evaluation examined three aspects of the Multimedia Project: its dissemination across various schools and districts, its impact on teaching practice, and its effects on student achievement. 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.
