TEDEd Lessons Worth Sharing

TEDEd Lessons Worth Sharing | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
Use engaging videos on TED-Ed to create customized lessons. You can use, tweak, or completely redo any lesson featured on TED-Ed, or create lessons from scratch based on any video from YouTube.

 

My rating:10/10

Stephen Bright's insight:

249 lessons using some of the TEDEd series of videos as well as other short educational videos. These are great videos on a wide range of topics from practical 'how to' videos (e.g. How to take a great picture) to a whimsical cartoon about molecules and chemical reactions using the metaphor of people walking down busy city streets.

 

Each created lesson has four activity categories - Watch (watch the video), Think (multi-choice and open answer questions), Dig Deeper (additional web links and resources), Discuss (focus question with a forum for responses).

 

There is also a 'flip this lesson' button to enable you to customise the lesson with your own questions (you need to have a TEDEd account to do this but it is free). As well you can create lessons from scratch using any Youtube video using the Watch/Think/Dig Deeper/Discuss format.

 

Note that only Youtube videos are available for this 'flipping' tool but for schools which have a block on Youtube opening your system to the Youtube School channel (which allows access to educational videos only) would be a way to make access possible.

Flipgrid.

Flipgrid. | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
Flipgrid is simple: Teachers create grids of short discussion-style questions that students respond to through recorded videos. Flipgrid boosts community and social presence in face-to-face, hybrid, and online classrooms.
Stephen Bright's insight:

Sounds like another really good idea - haven't tried it yet but would welcome feedback from anyone who has.... It does cost something - 5 grids are $60  US subscription per year (a grid is one class space). The students don't require a subscription but the teacher or lecturer does.

theo kuechel's comment, November 11, 2013 7:23 AM
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.
theo kuechel's comment, November 11, 2013 7:34 AM
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>

This is a blog post from Dr. Alec Couros @courosa outlining (with examples) 10 ideas for different classroom video projects. I like the ideas but as someone with almost no video creation skills or experience I can't comment on the level of video skills required...however I agree with the principle of students moving from being video consumers to video producers.

Vialogues : Meaningful discussions around video

Vialogues : Meaningful discussions around video | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
Vialogues(Video+Dialogues) is an asynchronous Video discussion tool which can be used for leveraging digital videos for learning by adding group interaction as part of the online video experience.

 

Vialogues (= video dialogues) lets you upload your own videos as well as use videos from sources such as Youtube. Uploading videos the file formats supported are: .mov, .flv, mp4, mpeg, and .avi. The single file limit is 1G which is pretty generous. You can also create Vialogues for other people's video clips if they are already in the 'public' section of the Vialogues library.

 

Questions can be posted at certain points of the video (like Grockit Answers) and the range of question types includes multi-choice (poll) as well as open-ended (text) questions. You can also delete the questions and/or answers if you want to do that.

 

Private weblinks are created if you want to restrict your questions/answers to a particular group. Your own created vialogues appear in a list on the right side of the screen under My Vialogues when you log on initially,  after that clicking  on the red Vialogues speech bubble takes you back to your home page with your listed Vialogues.

 

A plus for Moodle users is that it is easy to copy and paste the embed code to embed the Vialogue in your Moodle LMS course - note that Moodle participants need a Vialogues account to see/comment on the Vialogue activity.

 

A little more complex than other tools (such as Grockit Answers) but a more comprehensive range of questions and management tools for the author makes this a more versatile tool than any other educational video activity tool on the web.

 

Well done EdLab!

 

The one improvement I would suggest is that (like Grockit Answers), the video clip automatically pauses when you start typing a question or typing an answer to a question.

 

My rating: 9.5/10

Zhou Zhou's comment, February 22, 2013 12:35 AM
Hi Stephen, I'm a year late to read your scoop but am excited to know you like it! Thanks for the 9.5 score. We designed Vialogues at the EdLab of Teachers College Columbia University to support teaching and learning via meaningful discussions around videos. Pausing the video when commenting was a feature in our beta version but after receiving user feedbacks we dropped it. The reason is we expect users to have a conversation-like experience around the video instead of Q&A. Not pausing the video will encourage the users to make shorter but more frequent discussions.

Upload pictures or complete PowerPoint files to build the visual backbone of your story.Type texts to describe your slides and pictures. High quality text-to-speech, with 20+ languages and 70+ voices, will convert your text into a voicever speech.

The slides and the audio are turned into a video. The video is published on YouTube, ready to be shared, or made available for download to let you decide how to share it.

 

Haven't tried this yet but it looks easy - probably easier than other options (e.g. Slideshare) where you have to upload the slides, make an audio file using other software (e.g. Audacity) then sync the slides and sound together.

Make a video online for free with GoAnimate! Make videos for YouTube and Facebook, create business and educational videos, make animated e-cards and more!". Limited dialogue in the free version but enough to get started.

 

My rating: 7/10

Stephen Bright's insight:

Easy for students of all ages to use - enabling students to make animated videos on any topic. You can use your own voice to do the animations or use the pre-programmed voices. The dialogue is limited to 180 characters per animated character in the free version, so enough to get started but probably an upgrade is warranted if you want more substantial dialogue. The scenarios and characters are reasonably varied.

 

Note that to upload the completed videos to Youtube you have to upgrade from the free version to one of the paid accounts. A school account will cost approximately $4 per student with a minimum $200 + gst (NZ) as a starting point. Edsoft Interactive is the company contact for South Pacific users.

 

Note that careful planning, storyboarding and scripting is at least as important as the animation software itself when embarking on this type of activity with students.

Popcorn Maker

Popcorn Maker | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it

Sunday 11 November 2012 at the Mozilla Festival in London, Mozilla launched the 1.0 version of their new Popcorn Maker tool, a free web app that makes video pop with interactivity, context and the magic of the web. Popcorn Maker makes it easy to enhance, remix and share web video.

 

Using Popcorn Maker’s simple drag and drop interface, you can add live content to any video — photos, maps, links, social media feeds and more. All right from your browser. The result is a new way to tell stories on the web, with videos that are rich with context, full of links, and unique each time you watch them.

 

“Until now, video on the web has been stuck inside a little black box,” says Mozilla’s Director of Popcorn, Brett Gaylor. “Popcorn Maker changes that, making video work like the rest of the web: hackable, linkable, remixable, and connected to the world around it.”

VoiceThread - Conversations in the cloud

VoiceThread - Conversations in the cloud | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
Transforming media into collaborative spaces with video, voice, and text commenting.

 

Although this is only partly relevant to the online video for education theme of this scoop.it,  this tool is just so great and easy to use that I have included it. Teachers can post still images, video or text (or use Powerpoint slides - but the slides lose all their animations and transitions). Teachers and students can comment using text, voice or video - and the comments are attached to the particular slide for all to view. If you are in the USA you can also comment by phone.  If you want to restrict who has access to a VT you can email participants the unique link to the VT you have created.

 

Note that VoiceThread doesn't handle video clips particularly well. The most compatible files types are MP4 and FLV.  But if you want students to view and respond to video clips then Grockit Answers or Vialogues are probably better options. However VT is brilliant for teacher/student dialogue and collating student responses and comments related to still images.

 

Free accounts only allow you to save three VTs, but there are very reasonable rates for primary, secondary and tertiary educators.

 

Some very well-written and clear 'help'  documents are downloadable as .pdfs.
