Center for Digital Storytelling - listen deeply, tell stories

"The Center for Digital Storytelling is a California-based non-profit 501(c)3 arts organization rooted in the art of personal storytelling. We assist people of all ages in using the tools of digital media to craft, record, share, and value the stories of individuals and communities, in ways that improve all our lives.

Many individuals and communities have used the term "digital storytelling" to describe a wide variety of new media production practices. What best describes our approach is its emphasis on personal voice and facilitative teaching methods. Many of the stories made in our workshops are directly connected to the images collected in life's journey. But our primary concern is encouraging thoughtful and emotionally direct writing."

MICROTUBE is a website where students can submit short video clips that explain microeconomic concepts, effects, or theorems.

The basic idea underlying the MICROTUBE project is very simple: Students of economics produce video clips for students of economics. If these clips are worthwhile to watch, all the better. But how to implement such an idea? After some initial discussions with experts from the media services at the University of Zurich, it was agreed that it would be advisable to invest the available time in a small number of clips (rather than having too many). So a plan was made. A script was written, a casting organized, and locations were selected. Two camera teams worked in parallel over an extremely dense offsite weekend. And then, following weeks of cutting and fine-tuning, we ultimately arrived at the clips that are shown on this website. The MICROTUBE team hopes these clips will be (or have been) enjoyable for you!

Acknowledgement. This e-learning project was made possible by the generous support of the Initiate Interactive Learning (IIL) at the University of Zurich during the years 2007 and 2008. The website was designed and realized by Michael Hohl. The MICROTUBE project is an original idea of Christian Ewerhart.

4 Things Good Teachers do to Get Students REALLY Involved in Projects

“Almost all of the students in classrooms K-12, and a large percentage of students in colleges are ‘digital natives,’ or students who grew up with ubiquitous access to digital media.”

EduTube Educational Videos

With a slogan as "EduTube Educational Videos - find the best videos on the web in one place" EduTube focuses on educational videos, which are linked from other video repository sites such as YouTube, MetaCafe, … so this web site is actually a collection of linked and embedded educational videos. Uploading to this site isn't possible, which is a difference with sites such as YouTube.

Video Education Resources

To promote nanoscience education, the Center for Probing the Nanoscale offers free videos of many Center classes and programs. In addition, the CPN has partnered with Stanford’s Office of Accessible Education on the Proteus Project to make many course materials available in alternative formats including searchable captioned videos and transcripts of the lectures.

iMovie in Teacher Education

In preparing the next generation of teachers, we need to take seriously the responsibility of empowering teachers with tools to assist them in their continued professional growth and pursuit of teaching excellence. Preservice teachers should understand the impact digital video can have in placing children's voices in the forefront of educational decisions. Pre-service and practicing teachers alike can easily learn how to incorporate digital video into their classroom instruction through the use of tools like iMovie.  Below are four different applications of iMovie used in a single elementary science methods course to prepare future teachers of science.

1) Introducing external artifacts, 2) Modeling of alternative teaching strategies, 3) Reviewing and reflecting upon shared events, and 4) Documenting learning or presentation of personal accomplishment
