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."

Video Streaming: a guide for educational development
This handbook is an outcome of the Click and Go Video Project of JISC. Click and Go Video was a project from 2000 to 2002 that aimed to provide "a user orientated resource for the academic community that will stimulate and enhance the use of moving image archives for mainstream learning and teaching. It will investigate and report on best practice in developing a video enriched learning environment through the integration of archived moving images, locally produced video, Web resources and asynchronous and synchronous communications tools."
