A round-up of interactive video options

A round-up of interactive video options | The Inquiring Librarian | Scoop.it

"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."

Jan MacWatters's insight:

it seems sometimes like there is no end to the new things that we can do.  Adding our own thoughts, clarifications and highlights to basic videos to enhance learning may be worth the effort you put into learning how to do it.  Great tools for students and teachers.    This might be a good idea for a teacher workshop.

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.

Here is another way to have students think about their thinking. The Six Hats was written by Edward de Bono, and provides one way for students to organize their "thinking and decision making skills."
Each had is a different color and each represents a different way you might approach thinking.

* The white hat is about data and information. Think of it as a neutral position.

* The red hat looks at emotions.

* The yellow hat had a positive point of view.

* The black hat is more cautious.

* The green hat is for creative thinking and new ideas.

* The blue hat is for thinking about thinking (metacognition).

The post includes two additional visuals. Many students might find the process of thinking about what hat they would wear to help them determine the best way to approach specific areas.

I think IEP meetings could be more productive if the 6 Thinking Hats approach was used.  What do you think?

Julie Lindsay's curator insight, July 20, 2014 6:47 PM

A fresh take on the Thinking Hats - a great tool for writing blog reflections and other individual as well as collaborative work.

Very down-to-earth approach: I like that in today's edu-buzzword cacophony.
