The OneMinutesJr project

The OneMinutesJr project gives young people between 12 and 20 years of age from many corners of the globe the
opportunity to express themselves, speak out and learn audiovisual skills to communicate across borders, languages
and distances through 60 second videos.

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."

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.

Table of contents: 

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

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.
