Anti-Anti

This multimedia supported pervasive game was created by five secondary school pupils of the Sint-Lievenscollege Ghent (Belgium) around the theme of bullying and racketeering to sensitise students against useless violence. Students participating in this 50-minute lifesize game had to search a fictitious murderer in their school through clues provided in mp3-files and video clips.

The five girls who created this game, set up a campaign to attract their fellow pupils to participate in the lifesize Cluedo game with flyers and a website. The story was that a boy in school who had bullied one of his classmates, was found dead at his school. There were four suspects, so fellow students had to find the actual killer. The creators had created video clues but separated audiotracks and videotracks so participants needed to download mp3 files in advance and once the game began at school, they could find the accompanying videos at different locations in the school and then link sound with video.

In the Dutch project website the mp3 tracks could be first downloaded (http://anti-anti.slc-gent.be - with frames - watch in Internet Explorer). The English project website shows the different videos and a segment about the game of the local news. All videos are Dutch.

This project won the MEDEA Special Jury Award 2008 and so an (English) interview with the pupils' teacher was recorded as part of the project's showcase: http://www.medea-awards.com/showcase/anti-anti. In the interview, he explains that the students used their own material as the school didn't have video or audiomaterial at the time.

The Nature of Interaction in Educational Videoconferencing

This is a Master of Education thesis from 1999 by Carol Daunt. The study investigated the nature of interaction that can be achieved in educational videoconferencing and what adaptations (if any) to teaching and learning strategies are necessary. In particular it examines the following:
1. What impact does the technology have on the interactions?
2. Do lecturers have to make adaptations to teaching strategies?
3. Do students have to make adaptations to learning strategies?
4. Can a ‘dialogical’ approach be used effectively in videoconferencing?

A view about use of the digital video in learning

Opetustelevisio ei synnyttänyt oppimisen vallankumousta, eikä myöskään analogisten videoiden hyödyntäminen opetuksessa. Entä digitaalisten videoiden hyödyntäminen? Edelleenkään vallankumousta ei ole odotettavissa, mutta digivideoiden hyödyntäminen näyttää tukevan analogisia videoita joissakin suhteissa paremmin eräitä mielekkään opiskelun ja oppimisen ominaispiirteitä. Näihin pedagogisiin mahdollisuuksiin yliopistojen on perusteltua tarttua.

Case studies

The case studies show different ways that filmmaking was integrated into the academic context.

Table of contents: 

Genesis and Genre - Since film was a core part of the module, students spent a considerable part of their classroom time studying films and learning about filmmaking. They worked in groups to produce short dramatised sections of novels and plays by Galdós.

Understanding Law II - Students were asked to make a group-based presentation in an electronic format of their choice - video, podcast, screencast or a combination. Students had a two-hour workshop on shooting and editing, then worked independently.

Architecture - Post-graduate architecture students were offered the opportunity to use filmmaking as part of a large final project. They worked with a Norwegian filmmaker and had professional help in the form of 'master-classes' from Sheffield based filmmakers, then went on to make their own films.

Filming Shakespeare - Students were encouraged to creatively interpret a section of a Shakespeare play. Working in groups they storyboarded, directed and edited, with the support of a film crew.

The filmmaker's toolkit

This toolkit provides practical help and inspiration for students and staff interested in making films. With manual: online or downloadable as PDF (33 pages).
* Video technology has become easier to use, more available and far cheaper than ever before. More and more people are making their own videos and publishing them on the web, as YouTube testifies. But how do you get beyond ‘point and shoot' and what is the relevance of video production to education?
* Digital Video can be used in a number of ways in the classroom and the case studies show examples of a wide range of applications, together with student comment and reflection.
* The toolkit gives an overview of the filmmaking process, from initial idea to equipment needed to burning your DVD. It has been developed over several years and provides information and points to consider when making a film with an educational application in mind.
* The filmmaker's toolkit (downloadable as PDF) can be used as a standalone resource, in combination with workshops, or it can be more fully embedded into the learning and teaching of specific modules.
