theo kuechel's insight:

I think this supports a conclusion that many of us, using video clips in learning contexts may have been aware of, or suspected. I first recognised this when I was working on theTeaching and Learning with Digital Video Assets project (2004) with the University of Hull, and later on the EU Edutube Plus project (20011). I think where more analysis is needed is whether subjec content or the aesthetic/ filmic style affects the optimum length. The avaialability of tools

to create more interactive video content may also add a new variable to the mix. If you are using video clips in school I would welcome your comments below.

A point often overlooked; is that the purpose of educational video is; that it is expected to result in a positive learning action, investigation or recorded reflection that can be assessed. Educational video is usually only one part of a learning activity, something quite different from watching a film or TV, which is usually an end in itself. Whilst there are some excellent ‘educational’ TV programmes, for example those produced by the BBC or National Geographic their scope often is too wide for clear focus on a given learning activity. Educational video can now take advantage of a number different formats available e.g. six second cinemagraphs (e.g Vine, animated gifs), animated video-graphics, screencasts which are all suited to short clips. One of the affordances of digital (online) video is that it can be paused, and replayed and reviewed or annotated as part of a learning activity, and delivery is also changing through MOOCS, flipped classrooms and mobile technology.

agree with some of the commentators that the craft of filmmaking is still very important especially scripting, storyboarding, representation and the grammar of film. These qualities can be present in short and long and multiformat pieces - and students (and teachers) can learn a great deal by being familiar with them. As @rebecca says this has to be seen in relation to a teachers other responsibilities.<br>

DebateGraph

DebateGraph | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

description by Internet Scout Project


DebateGraph states, "to change the world you need to look at it in a different way." Many would agree; this platform gives multiple partners the ability to visualize and share different ideas. It's a neat concept and it's one that has been used by the United Kingdom's Foreign Office and CNN. A helpful "how-to" area can get users started and the application allows visitors to link ideas visually via a very easy-to-use interface. This version of debate graph is compatible with all operating systems

Jim Lerman's insight:

An online, interactive, collaborative mind-mapping tool. Looks quite versatile.

Why Historical Maps Still Matter So Much, Even Today

Why Historical Maps Still Matter So Much, Even Today | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

With 150,000 or so old print maps to his name, David Rumsey has earned his reputed place among the world's "finest private collectors." He continues to expand his personal trove as well as the digitized sub-collection he makes open to the public online — some 38,000 strong, and growing.


He's created a series of interactive maps that layer old prints onto the Google Earth and Google Maps platforms, and this summer he plans to launch a geo-referencing tool (similar to one recently introduced by the British Library) that lets users get involved in the digital mapping process themselves.

While preparing for this next expansion of his online map empire, Rumsey remains fascinated by "the power of putting these images up and letting them go," he says.

"Maps have a way of speaking to people very straightforward," he says. "You don't have to have a lot of knowledge of map history or history in general. To me they're perfect tools for teaching history to the public."
