A round-up of interactive video options

A round-up of interactive video options | Online Teacher Underground |

"We take for granted that we can interact with text, but up until recently it’s been a challenge to interact (read/write/talk) with media...

Being able to interact with video allows us to personalize video-based instruction, by leading learners to the segment of video we like them to watch, by adding voice-overs, notes, pop-ups, screenshots, maps, references, pauses. It also allows learners to create video with even more depth and features and can the interaction can be used to support media literacy learning."

Maryalice Leister's insight:

There are just too many excellent ideas and tools to single out which one is the best. Check these out and see how they can easily make your teaching move to the next level.

A good overview on the available tools to make video interactive.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, July 23, 2014 7:38 AM
  • Created for educators, EDpuzzle allows teachers to set up classes, to assign specific video lessons and to engage students in creating their own video lessons.  Analytics share which students watch, when they last watched, and whether they watched at home or at school.
  •  Mozilla PopcornMaker is a powerful multiple-layer video editor that invites users to remix videos to include pop-ups, text boxes, images, maps (even in streetview), as well as Wikipedia articles that continue to update.
  • ThingLink for video,  looks so promising.
  • eduCanon is an interactive learning platform into which teachers may embed questions and any html object.  
  • TED-Ed lessons offer educators the opportunity to customize a TED video to meet their specific instructional needs.
  • Write-on Video is an iPad app that allows users to annotate and animate videos and pictures, by arranging the elements into storyboards and slideshows enhanced by free-hand drawing, text boxes, stamps, and sound clips.

The result is an interactive learning tour that transforms video from a “lean back” experience to an engaging “lean forward” activity.

Added feedback in comments but active learning is always a plus and this tool promotes that beautifully and easily.

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, September 9, 2013 12:05 PM

The teacher can add questions, quizzes, text, polls to the video and involve students in interactive learning experience.

You get a free 30-days trial period to explore the tool.

Mary Starry's curator insight, September 17, 2013 10:08 PM

Allows you to take a YouTube or other video and create an interactive lesson from it. Free for one month, but then over $600 a year if you want to use with up to 200 students.

Teachers accept the responsibility for instilling digital literacy in their students of any age. It is not a skill young people should attempt to learn on their own as it is more complicated than it appears.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 22, 2014 9:37 PM

What are the 8 key elements of digital literacy? According to Doug Belshaw, who works with the Mozilla Foundation and has written his dissertation on digital literacies are:

* Cultural

* Cognitive

* Constructive

* Communicative

* Confident

* Creative

* Critical

* Civic

The post includes short definitions for each and you may watch Belshaw at a TEDx Conference on this topic.
