Workshop “Developing documentaries in schools”

Educational Radiotelevision (EduTV) organised the MEDEAnet workshop “Developing documentaries in schools” on 5-7 April 2013 in Athens, Greece. The workshop was dedicated at primary and secondary level teachers who already have a prior experience in video production, basic knowledge in ICT, and Web 2.0 tools.

Lead speaker of the workshop was the Film director and Media Educator, Maria Leonida. She focused on methodologies related to documentary, exploring how various tools and resources can be used to enhance creativity in schools and finally understanding how documentary can be a multimodal, effective, informative and expressive medium. During the 3-day workshop the 24 participants learnt about ways to refine their shooting and editing techniques, enhance their creative techniques, focus on methodologies and educational content that could make teaching exciting and attractive to young people.

Sofia Papadimitriou (EduTV, Greece) presented the whole activities of the MEDEAnet project and how to publish and disseminate videos in social media and embed them in learning environments.

In addition, two successful webinars were held on Saturday and Sunday morning, exchanging experiences of creating videos with other European teachers. Sally Reynolds (ATiT, Belgium) first presented the history of MEDEA Awards and the experience of teachers’ training in media and the challenges that are emerged. In particular, Annamaria Lisotti (Italy) talked about the recordings of Science experiments in the classroom with her pupils and Anca Irimina (Romania) presented the use of video in a vocational school of Romania and her relevant experience. An active discussion was developed after their presentations, providing a good opportunity for the participants to ask questions about best practices of using the video in classroom settings.

Petros Michailidis, the winner of MEDEA Awards in the category “User-Generated Educational Media” last year, presented via Skype the ways he creates videos with his pupils and how he integrates this process in the curriculum.

Studiecoach

Studiecoach is a free online resource for study advice or digital coach and was created by the Dutch Open University (http://www.ou.nl) which is specialised in higher education for adult students through supported distance learning. Studying in distance learning requires new and different study methods from the traditional classroom learning; in distance education there are fewer contact hours and there is more self-study which requires more self-discipline. Following the university's open public nature of providing resources, Studiecoach is freely available for students and non-OU students.

The Studiecoach website combines several media types and activities: video, tests, text, games, exercises, exam and training. The themes are: time management, anxiety, multiple choice examtraining, oral presentation, written presentation, mindmapping, meditation, finding scientific information on the Internet. All themes are visualised in the form of a mindmap and each topic is introduced by a short video and students can access further content and training programs or register directly at one of the training programs in the study center. In addition to Studiecoach, the Open University organises a series of workshops around these themes at different locations in the Netherlands, where students (and non-students) can meet each other and discuss the topics at hand.

A more detailed English description of the project is available in the Showcase on the MEDEA Awards website: http://www.medea-awards.com/showcase/studiecoach

EduTubePlus: Virtual Workshop on Creating Your Own Video

A series of online modules for creative and curious teachers who are keen on integrating video in their classroom activities. You will learn in a number of simple steps how you can complement your learning and teaching activities with (moving) images. Moreover, you will also learn how you can create these materials yourself so that they are fit for use.
This workshop was created in the framework of the EduTubePlus project (www.edutubeplus.info) along with face-to-face training sessions that took place in 2009 and 2010. The lesson plans that are mentioned in the workshop are only accessible to EduTubePlus portal users.

The EduTubePlus project aims to develop a European hybrid, multilingual video-based service for schools. This service will integrate thousands of multi-lingual curriculum-related video-clips by major European educational TV & video providers, with tools enabling educators to enrich the library with user-generated clips. The EduTubePlus service will enable users to develop, translate and share video-based learning scenarios and lessons, to search resources using terms related to their national curriculum and to use video in a pedagogically relevant manner in-class.
The EduTubePlus service will come about as a result of the effective adaptation, extension and integration of existing digital educational video resources and services, robust technical solutions, pedagogical knowledge, best practices and success stories.

Table of contents:

- Introduction - What do you need when making 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."
