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.

About the significance of „daily soaps“ in the life of children and youth

Streaming Media in Education and their impact on teaching and learning

Subtitle: Educational best practices and some first observations of their implementation.

A review written by the eStream partnership, published in July 2005.

The main aim of this publication is to summarise the efforts of eStream undertaken to gain more insight into the impact of streaming media technology on the quality of teaching and learning. The publication, therefore, includes the learning/teaching scenarios developed by the eStream partnership, together with some conclusions. Furthermore, the publication contains considerable information on general aspects of streaming media technology in education, taking into account that readers might be beginners interested in the topic, but with little background in the thematic area. The booklet closes with a chapter dedicated to emerging developments and their impact on streaming media.

Also a German and Greek version available.

Table of contents: 

1 Introduction
2 Streaming technology: a brief account for pedestrians
3 Learning Theories and Learning Styles
4 Information technology and education – Visions of implementation for streaming media 5 Teaching approaches: great opportunities and some pitfalls
6 Examples of implementing streaming media in education
7 The research
8 Emerging developments and their expected impact on streaming media
9 Conclusions
10 Bibliography
