Why Open Education Matters

Why Open Education Matters | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

"Today Creative Commons, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Open Society Institute launch the Why Open Education Matters Video Competition. The competition will award cash prizes, provided by the Open Society Institute, of up to $25,000 for the best short videos that explain the use and promise of free, high-quality open educational resources and describe the benefits and opportunities these materials create for teachers, students and schools."


A wonderful creative opportunity for educators and students to make videos that promote the use of high quality open educational resources. I am sure this initiative will create some wonderful reusable video resources and spread the word on the value of open educational resources.


I can't think of  any  good reason not to enter, nor can I wait to view the submissions. More info here.

After The Fair: The Legacy of the 1964-65 NY World's Fair

in 1965, the last great world's fair in the U.S. was demolished, never to be seen again. Or was it?


This documentary project will gather archive footage and other resources to create a video documentary of the NY64-65 Worlds Fair.


This  might serve as a good model for a other educational video projects - using archive footage The Interent Archive might be a good place to look for footage.


This project is seeking funding from Kickstarter, a crowdsourced funding platform for creative projects.

DOWNLOAD Using YouTube: From Consumption To Production

DOWNLOAD Using YouTube: From Consumption To Production | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

Do you want to get the most out of YouTube? If so, we’ve got just the guide for you, then – “Using YouTube : From Consumption To Production“, the latest free manual from MakeUseOf. By author Matt Smith, this guide goes over everything you need to know about YouTube, whether you’re an enthusiast or a budding director.

 

"There are really two sides to the YouTube coin – consumption and production. YouTube is unique from most other forms of media because it allows people using the service to both view content and create it. Becoming a content creator doesn’t require any special permission. All you need is an account and a video file to upload" 

 

The booklet is available free download - but you have to like MakeUseOf on FB or subscribe to their Newsletter. A very reasonable price to pay

This is a very interesting perspective of using YouTube in schools from a teachers point of view. It  raises many issues that educators should be aware of and discuss. So thanks to Simon for the post and starting the debate.

An anthropological introduction to YouTube

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!

Avid Studio rolls onto iPad, treads on iMovie's toes (video)

Avid Studio rolls onto iPad, treads on iMovie's toes (video) | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

"Avid Studio rolls onto iPad, treads on iMovie's  toes"


There are a growing number number of  of apps available for video-editing on the iPad, (and also a  the iPhone). This appears to be one of the most sophisticated.


I dont think we are anywhere near the end of the road yet, in terms of mobile video editing, but as it takes will be certainly worth keeping an eye in a research context, asking what are the benefits of mobile video editing, (if any) as opposed to desktop?

Frequency™ for iPad on the iTunes App Store

Frequency is a free iPad app for discovering, aggregating, watching and sharing online video.  


Frequency is easy works rather like Fipboard,  in that you can search for your favourite channels and sources to add to the Tuner for quick access to the latest videos. Perhaps what might be most  most useful is taht you can connect to you Facebook Twitter and YouTube accounts and watch the latest posting from you networks or on YouTube your favourited and uploaded videos. As with other, similar online tools, putting in some time to explore will bring its rewards.


I look forward to seeing what other education professionals think of Frequency, or how they use it

Marshall McLuhan Speaks — Introduction by Tom Wolfe

Marshall McLuhan Speaks — Introduction by Tom Wolfe | Video for Learning | Scoop.it
The year 2011 marks Marshall McLuhan's 100th birthday.

...

Any educator, or indeed anyone who works with, or is interested in digital media, digotal literacy and technology, and how those agents affect our societies and cultures will find a great deal of value in these collected video interviews and prsentations by this visionary philosopher and educator. 


"His ideas are as arresting today as when they were first advanced in the 1960s – maybe even more so, as old inhibitions, restraints, conventions and decencies are one by one discarded"

Andrea Zeitz  


As Andrea says in her Scoop.it post still relevant and well worth revisiting on a regular basis.

1923 animated film about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity

1923 animated film about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

I don't normally link to individual videos on Video for Learning but delighted to make an exception here.


"Einstein's Theory of Relativity” is a silent animated film made in 1923 that tried to explain Einstein’s work to the general public"

Made by Max Fleischer, (his famous works include Popeye and Betty Boop amongst others),  this is a predecessor of educational video infographics.  I think it helps put work from the likes of  RSA and Commoncraft in  a context.


An interesting point raised in one of the comments is:  

"The model of the two revolvers attached to the wooden wagon wheel are so far removed from our modern society"

.. but arguably still help convey the concept, as also mentioned  in another comment:


"In 1979, I once tried to explain orbital mechanics to my step-father, who was a Mississippi share-cropper born in 1933, turned career US Postman. I was 10 years old and understood it completely, but could not get it through his head that there was no up and down in space because it was all relative. Still, using that example to demonstrate relativity is quite simplistic."

More on the film here (wikipedia).

Upcoming: YouTube Video Player Introduces Storyboards and Timeline Thumbnailing

YouTube will be adding another ferature which should be very useful for educators, being able to show thumbnails will be ideal for developing digital story telling, review, questioning and predictive activities. 


Amit Agarwal writes:

 

"The next version of YouTube video player will have one very useful feature – you can hover your mouse to any point in the video, without actually moving the playhead, and the YouTube player will show you an image thumbnail of the video frame at the position.

 

Thus you can easily get a visual gist of the whole video while the clip is still buffering.

 

I recorded a screencast video and that should give you a better idea of this new feature."
