I wrote several months ago about the experience of working alongside UMW’s Chinese History scholar Sue Fernsebner to start imagining how she might integrate animated GIFs into a curriculum centered around film analysis
I was pleased to come across these examples of using GIFs from Jim Groom because they resonated with an some earlier on Video for Learning where I considered how the facility to isolate movement in an video or how a short repeating sequence of video can help educators find new ways of wringing extra data from visual media. These examples really make you think about what you are seeing in different ways.
I think that this is just the beginning and such techniques will become more prevalnt in learning designs and that many more educators and learners will become involved; for example my colleague John Johnston and his experiments.

"Twitter has launched a new service. Called VINE it allows users to take 6 second video clips on their SMARTphones and Tablets and then share them via twitter (and facebook). Once taken, the 6 second clips loop, which is either intensely annoying or a great spur to make creative videos which enthrall people (depending on your points of view). My first VINE attempt is above, simply my daughter spinning round in a playground"
I was going to post about Vine but Matt has beaten me to it - and done a much better job. Like any visual or digital tool you get out what you put in in terms of thought or experimenatation.
It sits at the boundary of the animated gif/cinemagraphhttp://www.tripwiremagazine.com/2011/07/cinemagraphs.html and the video clip. I think Vine has a great potential to develop creative and valuable learning resources, that analyse the unseen moment, comment, demonstrate creativity, and generate fun. Muybridge would have loved it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Muybridge_Buffalo_galloping.gif
"Cinemagraphs are still images that contain within themselves living elements allowing a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved. Cinemagraph is a technique of blending the effects of images and videos. It was introduced by a New York fashion photographer Jamie Beck, in collaboration with motion graphics designer Kevin Burg"
A far cry from the crude animated gifs common on the web in the 90's and early 21stC web, these examples examples demonstrate the scope and potential of this new medium I think what might be interesting for educators is the power to focus on, and highlight some hidden detail, a nuance that might be missed in a video or still image.
For example, what details would a geographer, a mathematician, or a linguist choose to emphasise?
This article also provides a useful guide on the technical aspects of making cinemagraphs. If you want to explore creating animated gifs on a mobile platform then there are some apps available including Giffer. Some more examples here.
This tutorial describes how you can quickly create a time-lapse movie using Street View imagery from Google Maps and publish it to YouTube in HD.
Lots of potential for all subjects in this activity. I would assume any screencapture software that saves image files will be OK for Step 2?
VideoNotes is a neat new tool for taking notes while watching videos. VideoNotes allows you to load any YouTube video on the left side of your screen and on the right side of the screen VideoNotes gives you a notepad to type on. VideoNotes integrates with your Google Drive account. By integrating with Google Drive VideoNotes allows you to share your notes and collaborate on your notes just as you can do with a Google Document.
I have just made a test VideoNote for a YouTube clip and all seemed to work very well. It is very easy to set up and use immediatley and there is some help if required. The response when clicking the annotated notes to access the correct point in the timeline was instantaneous. I would have liked to see the timecode in the notes window - hopefully that will become available. I have not expored the download option in detail
I have used Videopaper3 http://vpb.archive.concord.org/ previously, (V.4 is is still in a closed beta - a mistake I think), what I like about this tool is that it is online and saves to Google Drive. Also the sharing options open up so many collaborative opportunies at all levels of education, from early school to tertiary education.
It is interesting to note that the page is badged with the Logos of some of the major online learning providers, including Coursera and Khan. I would like to know more about the provenance of the resource and hopefully a more detailed about page will become available. Great Potential for use of video in learning.
This seems like a great tool
This looks like it might be nice for makign notes on dance videos I like to watch and comment on.
add your insight...
"Poetically modest, sometimes audacious and violent, animated images can sometimes help us to grasp the unfathomable dimensions of creation"
"As part of the MA ‘methodologies’ lecture series at National centre for Ceramics, Wales, Leah McLaughlin presented a lecture on ‘Video as a Research Tool’. As part of this presentation she set the MA students the task of completing a film themselves to enable them to experience first hand the ease with which film can be used to document aspects of their practice"
Some of the results can be seen on Leah's web page and I think this approach offers opportunities for all stages of education and all subjects
Thanks to @edmediashare - good to see them on scoop.it
Michael Wesch presented this "at the Library of Congress, June 23rd 2008. This was tons of fun to present. I decided to forgo the PowerPoint and instead worked with students to prepare over 40 minutes of video for the 55 minute presentation"
Michael's analysis of YouTube draws the connections between video, Web technology and ourselves; exploring how these have changed behaviours and relationships.
Whilst the numbers have grown exponentially, some of the demographics may have shifted, and the YouTube platform has evolved since this was put together; this is still essential viewing if you are interested in developing the potential of Video for Learning.
The timecoded bookmarks are invaluable in helping get the most from this reosurce.
Thanks to Oliver Quinlan for reminding me about this!
Coach's Eye is a video analysis tool that allows you to shoot video on an iPhone and the review it in slow motion or frame by frame. You can also annotate video with drawings or audio commentary. The quality and control of the slow motion is superb.
Although designed for sports use, I am sure users will find it useful for many other kinds of video. This great example was shot earlier by my friend Kevin McLaughlin @kvnmcl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1fl4e2j2Wo&feature=youtu.be
