EduTubePlus: Virtual Workshop on Creating Your Own Video
A series of online modules for creative and curious teachers who are keen on integrating video in their classroom activities. You will learn in a number of simple steps how you can complement your learning and teaching activities with (moving) images. Moreover, you will also learn how you can create these materials yourself so that they are fit for use.
This workshop was created in the framework of the EduTubePlus project (www.edutubeplus.info) along with face-to-face training sessions that took place in 2009 and 2010. The lesson plans that are mentioned in the workshop are only accessible to EduTubePlus portal users.
The EduTubePlus project aims to develop a European hybrid, multilingual video-based service for schools. This service will integrate thousands of multi-lingual curriculum-related video-clips by major European educational TV & video providers, with tools enabling educators to enrich the library with user-generated clips. The EduTubePlus service will enable users to develop, translate and share video-based learning scenarios and lessons, to search resources using terms related to their national curriculum and to use video in a pedagogically relevant manner in-class.
The EduTubePlus service will come about as a result of the effective adaptation, extension and integration of existing digital educational video resources and services, robust technical solutions, pedagogical knowledge, best practices and success stories.

Teaching Youth Media : A Critical Guide to Literacy, Video Production, and Social Change
This book explores the power of using media education to help urban teenagers develop their critical thinking and literacy skills. Drawing on his twenty years of experience working with inner-city youth at the acclaimed Educational Video Center (EVC) in New York City, Steven Goodman looks closely at both the problems and possibilities of this model of media education.
Responding to our national concern about adolescents, literacy, media, and violence,Teaching Youth Media:
* Describes the changes schools and after-school programs need to make in order to create a media education that empowers students to change their world.
* Explores the intersection of literacy and culture as youth learn to analyze information from a variety of sources, including television, newspapers, books, films, school, church, and lives outside of school.
* Features case studies of students and teachers engaged in making video documentaries at EVC and in an alternative high school.
* Illuminates the practical day-to-day challenges faced by professional developers and teachers working to change the way education is practiced in their classes and schools.
* Looks at the profound "disconnect" that results when teachers and curriculum fail to recognize the social and cultural contexts in which urban students live.
* Explores the critical thinking and technical video arts skills students develop as they learn to collaboratively conduct interviews, research, shoot, log, and edit their documentaries.
Project LIVE (Learning through Instructional Video in Education) is part of EUDS4kids (Escondido Union School District, California).

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.
Our goal is to challenge abusive stereotypes and other biased images commonly found in the media. Media Watch, which began in 1984, distributes educational videos, media literacy information and newsletters to help create more informed consumers of the mass media.
