Video in Social and Professional Learning Networks
The presentation regards the ways and the benefits of publishing and disseminating videos in social networks and the development of Professional Learning Networks (PLN) as a direct consequence.
Video is a "social object" inspiring and motivating students, cultivating dialogue, rating, polls and sharing in learning communities. Enabling school communities to present and disseminate their projects could make them available to each citizen. Therefore, video activates the students’ participation and communication, enhancing their creativity and collaboration.
Furthermore, video is a "learning object" supporting interactions, providing opportunities to gain an insight into ideas, content and events, engaging in conversations with people all over the globe who share similar interests, passions, problems and experiences.
LRE - Learning Resource Exchange
The Learning Resource Exchange (LRE) for schools is developed and coordinated by European Schoolnet (EUN, http://www.eun.org) and enables schools to find educational content from many different countries and providers. Anyone is able to browse content in the LRE federation of repositories and teachers that register can also use LRE social tagging tools, rate LRE content, save their Favourite resources and share links to these resources with their friends.
