Looper Infinitely Replays Particular Sections of YouTube Videos

Looper Infinitely Replays Particular Sections of YouTube Videos | Video for Learning | Scoop.it
Chrome: Whether you are watching your favourite scene or viewing a lecture, there are times when you need YouTube to repeat a certain part of a video. Looper for YouTube is a new extension that lets you do this easily.
theo kuechel's insight:

I've just added this extension and it is very useful - well for certain tasks anyway such as learning a guitar solo  - or watching a dynamic process that are short lived, for example;  the explosive demolition of a building.  I think ther is a lot of potential for both individual and group or class work.  For more analytical learrning that requires a response then VideoNote.es might be worth looking at.


Now if there was an export feature or embed code for the loop that would be excellent. I would would welcome comments from  from educators on how or if they might use/ have used this tool.

La Educación Prohibida

La Educación Prohibida | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

'

The school has already served more than 200 years old and is still considered the main form of access to education. Today, the school and education are concepts widely discussed in academic, public policy, educational institutions, media and society spaces civil.Desde origin, the school has been characterized by structures and practices today mostly considered obsolete and outdated"


La Educación Prohibida (Forbidden education) is a project centered on a 2:25 hour film that explores in  Education, its origins, theory and practice in detail. It is also a research project that uses social media with over 25000 followers. It combines interviews with academics, students, teachers and parents, with dramatic storylines and animated sequences


This is an open Copyleft film and the producers encourage you to download,  remix and share this film. Some of the sequences are ideal for CPD or to further our current discourse on education and learning. I think the film  has a great significance for us all.


The film is in Spanish with English, Portugese, French and Italian captions. The site is in Spanish - I viewed it using Googles auto-translate pug-in with Chrome 


Looking forward to comments.

Predictions for Educational TV in the 1930s

Predictions for Educational TV in the 1930s | Video for Learning | Scoop.it
Before it became known as the idiot box, television was seen as the best hope for bringing enlightenment to the American people...

...

In light of the current buzz surrounding flipped classrooms, MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and video lecture-capture; this piece on Matt Novak's excellent Paleofuture blog at Smithsonian.com, serves to remind us that educational TV/broadcasting; (now online video), is nothing new and perhaps offers us a clearer historical and academic context for evaluating the current use of video and broadcast technologies for learning.


The drawings used to illustrate the article are superb, and worthy of inclusion in any serious presentation about online learning!

The Khan Academy, SmartHistory & Google Art Project

The Khan Academy, SmartHistory & Google Art Project | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

"You may have been wondering what Smarthistory has been up to since we joined Khan Academy in October. We’ve had to keep this hush-hush…but we can now announce that we have contributed more than 100 videos to the unbelievably great, second iteration of the Google Art Project"


The recent announcement of an extensive Version 2 of the Google Art Project, covering 151 museums and thousands of works has been followed by the news that SmartHistory.org have been collaborating with Google on building education resources to extend and support the project.


I think this is a good example of how content can be part of an ecosystem for learning. I am sure it will encourage similar initiatives elsewhere.

Donald Clark Plan B

Donald Clark Plan B | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

the lecture or talk is a waste of time if it's not recorded and put up on YouTube, as many more people will watch online than offline."


"Unlike education, the web has a habit of producing pedagogic models that have massive user adoption. Short, instructive video is one such Massive Open Online Pedagogy (MOOP). YouTube showed that short, video clips have a serious contribution to play in learning. YouTube EDU put lectures online but if anything this was the old world porting its old bad practices into the new world. A bad one hour lecture isn't made better by putting it on YouTube and believe me, YouTube EDU is  jammed with bad lectures"

theo kuechel's insight:

Donald Clark provides an excellent broad rationale on why YouTube is one of the the most important Learning Platforms and search tools. I think he captures the pedagogical affordances for the viewer -  for me it also raises the question - Is one more than a viewer on YouTube?


And then of course there is the constructivist aspect of YouTube - acessed throuh the Editor  and Video Mangager

"Television is our preeminent medium of information, entertainment and persuasion, but until now it has not been a medium of record. Scholars face great challenges in identifying, locating and adequately citing television news broadcasts in their research."

 

"This archive attempts to address this gap by making TV news coverage of this critical week in September 2001 available to those studying these events and their treatment in the media.Starting in late 2000, we began collecting Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Iraqi, French, Mexican, British, American, and other stations… 20 channels of TV in DVD quality."
