The picture above is from We Are The 99 Percent, a Tumblr blog where people post stories of economic hardship. The chart below shows the frequency of posts on the blog since it got going in early September.
* We don’t need better assessments; we need different assessments that help us understand students as learners and constructors of their own ongoing education instead of knowers of information and narrow skills. * We don’t need better teachers; we need different teachers who see their roles as master learners first and content guides or experts second. * We don’t need better schools; we need different schools that function as communities of inquiry and learning instead of delivery systems for a highly proscribed, traditional curriculum.

Welcome to Video for Learning, for the foreseeable future I will be curating resources to further the study and research, practice and discussion of video for learning. Online video; its creation, use and re-use for all stages of learning, will be explored from both pedagogical and technical viewpoints.
Where they provide extra value and contexts I will include older links and resources as well as new and breaking developments. I look forward to comments and feedback.
