MEDEAnet webinar "How to integrate gaming in the classroom"

Game-based learning offers a variety of opportunities to teachers to stimulate pupils' engagement and to strengthen their collaborative learning skills. During this one hour webinar on Monday, 25 June 2012 (4 - 5pm CET) participants received an insight into what it's like to integrate games into their teaching practice. 27 participants took part in this webinar aimed at teachers, educators and school directors interested in getting to know more about the different ways in which they can integrate digital games into learning activities.

The speakers that MEDEAnet lined up for this webinar are Steven Ronsijn, teacher and educational ICT-coordinator at Sint-Lievenscollege Gent (Belgium) and Jolanta Galecka from Young Digital Planet (Poland). Steven described the concrete benefits and experiences he has had as a teacher when using games in his lessons. Jolanta's focus was on how you can use games in different learning settings to better motivate children to learn from both a theoretical and a practical perspective.

JISC Infokit: Planning Your Video Production

This infokit released by Jisc Digital Media provides a step-by-step guide to planning and preparing your video shoot.

The infokit begins with a brief look at the pros and cons of using video to support teaching and learning, discusses video pedagogy and then moves onto the planning and writing of the content. It then considers the resources needed for the video, including personnel, locations and equipment, as well as the importance of establishing all of the steps needed to complete the production and their interdependencies.

Budgeting, scheduling and legal and health and safety issues are also covered to ensure that you can work within pre-agreed budgets and timeframes and people are kept safe. Finally, it looks at the importance of reflection and evaluation upon the conclusion of a project as a way of both increasing your knowledge and contributing to the success of future productions.

In addition to discussing all the aspects of planning a video, the infokit provides links to a number of resources, including reference works, a budget spreadsheet and model release forms.

SignMedia - Interactive learning resource

This is a website for Deaf Media Professionals who want to improve their written English skills. An online learning resource that teaches elements of broadcast media industry-specific English through Sign Language video and interactive tasks.
The video narrative and gameplay immerses learners into an alternative reality where learners start to work for the fictional Deaf production company Sunrise Media Productions as the production manager for the soap opera ‘Beautiful Days’.

The resource has been designed primarily as a vocational tool for Deaf media professionals, but can also benefit Deaf media students and other Sign Language users who wish to develop their written English at an intermediate level or learn media specific signs. Hearing people with a professional or personal interest in sign languages can also benefit from an extensive Sign Language glossary of Media terminology – the first of its kind.
The Learning Tool is signed in British, Italian and Austrian Sign Languages.
