Man möchte einen Einblick in das Leben bekommen…

Daily soaps have been an important part of Germany’s television market for over 10 years and have been developing a large fanbase. Especially children and youth are watching the destinies of their soap heroes every day – this contributes considerably to the socialisation of the adolescents. How does school deal with that phenomenon? This text describes a project about youth working creatively with tv series and starting their own series production.

Using existing streaming media to teach science

"A growing number of schools in Europe already have computer laboratories utilizing modern computers. Introductory courses on ICT are already integrated in primary school curricula or soon will be. It is about time, therefore, to revise existing or develop new ICT curricula. Something different, more advanced, and more exciting is needed, therefore, for the high school (and lyceum) curricula. We believe that one possible course of action would be to integrate the curriculum ICT teaching with the teaching of different subjects, while at the same time to combine different learning methods by paying more emphasis to students’ own actions and self-directed learning abilities. We believe that by combining tasks in the way shown in this paper, will prove to be very beneficial to the students.

In education, the omnipresence of the web and the increased communications bandwidth has created, in effect, an integrated educational medium. Web-based video streaming technologies are expected to experience a rapid adoption by students and educators. In addition to maintaining the more traditional activities like text conferencing, whiteboards, video conferencing etc, video sequences can be integrated with or linked to slides by the use of simple use of ordinary internet browsers. This results to a seamless integration of digital video with other tools, hereby creating a Virtual Learning Environment. It also offers the opportunity to move beyond one-way video towards an interactive medium that complements, and adds visual richness to static text and graphic content.

It is possible for streaming media to become a ubiquitous form of communication and to find application in every classroom. Nevertheless, there is currently an acute lack of research dealing with the use of existing streaming media for teaching and learning, despite the fact that streaming video is one of the best methods for introducing ICT (for the first time) in everyday school practice. In this paper, the results of an attempt to teach science using existing streaming media are presented."

Video Streaming in Online Learning

The use of video in teaching and learning is a common practice in education today. As learning online becomes more of a common practice in education, streaming video and audio will play a bigger role in delivering course materials to online learners. This form of technology brings courses alive by allowing online learners to use their visual and auditory senses to learn complex concepts and difficult procedures. This article offers an overview of using streaming video in the online educational environment and discusses the various formats of streaming media. The various hardware and software programs used to create streaming video are also examined along with the advantages and drawbacks of using streaming video in online instruction. Finally, a discussion of how streaming video can be used in online instruction and its curricular applications are addressed.

Engaging Student and Teachers through Video Creation

Abstract: This poster discusses how, through a video competition, opportunities are created for students and teachers to pursue and express their ideas. Literature has shown that video production promotes learning at each stage of the video production process. Teachers were trained on media production in order to build their expertise in the area. By passing on these skills to their students, the students learn to be more media literate, respect intellectual property rights, and put forward their messages in a more responsible manner. Interviews have revealed that students and teachers have both benefited from the video competition. The competition has succeeded in reaching out to students and teachers to play a more active role in creating media instead of being mere passive media users.

Der Sound des Clips: Musikvideos

Nowadays, every song is accompanied by a video clip. What is it that makes videos (animated, cool, artistic, fictional or horroresque) that fascinating? Pupils are trying to answer that question in the course of the lesson. First, they are examining the editing sequences as well as the connection of content and text. After that, they analyze several video clips. Finally, the pupils are working with a text about the history of music television.

Television Goes to School

Subtitle: The Impact of Video on Student Learning in Formal Education.

A resource provided by the Education Department of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for the benefit of Public Broadcasters and Educators throughout the United States. Created by EDC’s Center for Children and Technology.

"Today’s children are growing up surrounded by television and video. Visual media is already an essential component of classroom instruction, with almost all teachers employing video in some form in their teaching. As the presence of broadband, digital media, and streaming video increases, the likelihood is that video will become an even more essential classroom resource. Classroom resources these days must be backed by research. The passage of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires that instructional resources must demonstrate evidence of effectiveness. As a result, scientifically-based research is more important in education than ever before.

This report focuses on key questions concerning the relationship of television to learning, and provides examples drawn from current television research to demonstrate television’s effect on student achievement. A set of practical recommendations are also provided so that broadcasters and educators can maximize the effectiveness of video in the classroom."
