The Academic GIF | bavatuesdays | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

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

theo kuechel's insight:

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.

Create "Hand Drawn" animations on the iPad

Create "Hand Drawn" animations on the iPad | Video for Learning | Scoop.it


If you are a fan of the animated "hand drawn" videos that have been been made popular by the RSA then you may be interested in VideoScribe HD.


By selecting elements such as  icons arrows and backgrounds from the libraries provded, it is a relatively straightforward process to storyboard these videos, after which the  Videoscribe app  automatically creates a video sequence 'drawn' by an animated hand.  


I think there is a lot of potential for educators and students to come up with some innovative and creative results. The only downside might be if they become too ubiquitous and people become indiffrent to the format


Get VideoScribe HD on the Apple App Store; £2.99. There is also a free online browser based version together with a paid-for Pro Desktop version available on the Sparkol Web page.

TED-Ed - Lessons Worth Sharing -

TED-Ed - Lessons Worth Sharing - | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

TED-Ed's mission is to capture and amplify the voices of great educators around the world. We do this by pairing extraordinary educators with talented animators to produce a new library of curiosity-igniting videos. A new site, which will launch in early April 2012, will feature these new TED-Ed Originals as well as some powerful new learning tools.


I  think we can all look forward to some inspiring and thought provoking educational videos when TED Ed launches. These will be 'crowdsourced' as TED seeks nominations for educators, animators  and lesson ideas to be included.

As a precursor the associated YouTube channel is now live and offers a flavour of the quality of the content to follow.

How To Create a Video Infographic

How To Create a Video Infographic | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

By definition, a video infographic is a visual representation of data and knowledge in the form of an online video.

 

It’s content marketing in a unique, high impact form. A video infographic hits the audience with morsels of high-value information, which, after viewing for as little as 90 seconds, could improve their perspective on the subject matter.

 

Because it’s an entertaining combination of audio and visuals, viewers are more likely to make an emotional connection to the message and are more likely to respond to it, share it with friends and colleagues, and even view it multiple times.

SIGGRAPH 2012 : Technical Papers Preview Trailer

The SIGGRAPH Technical Papers program is the premier international forum for disseminating new scholarly work in computer graphics and interactive techniques...


These video illustrations of the technical papers provide an insight as to how computer animation can contribute to science, design and art. I am certain many of these techniques will be employed in future educational video resources. My favourites include: enhanced drawing 0:26, the 3D table modelling, fabric rendering 2:37; cinemagraphs 2:50 and 3D modelling 2:57. If you want to see more there is also a showreel trailer  with more awesome examples.

Cinemagraphs - the interface between images and video

Cinemagraphs - the interface between images and video | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

"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.

Create a Time-Lapse Movie with Google Street View - Digital Inspiration

Create a Time-Lapse Movie with Google Street View - Digital Inspiration | Video for Learning | Scoop.it
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?

Animation Pioneer Max Fleischer Illustrates 1944-1945 News Wires | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

If the stop-motion timelapse editing and Fleicher’s illustration style look familiar, they should be — they presage the excellent and ever-popular RSA animations by over half a century and no doubt inspired everyone’s favorite intellectual sketchnote-storytelling.

 

The film is now in the public domain and available as a free, legal, remixable download courtesy of the Internet Archive.
