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.
