This workshop explores methods that can be used by teachers to introduce their learners to the notion of learning through creation of a video.
This can simply be in the established skills of story telling through film, but it can also be the imaginative use of video to explain a concept or to teach a skill to peers. Contructionist pedagogy will underpin the design and delivery of this workshop with a strong focus on giving learners a chance to create their own understanding and knowledge.
The workshop activities do not require that video content involves images of class members, staff or other identifiable individuals, but of course it can do so if participants agree. The methods include montage of still images and simple animation techniques.
At the end of the session participants will have:
1) created at least one montage for themselves using a combination of moving and still images.
2) explored the full spectrum of uses of video in education
3) undertaken an assessment exercise on the benefits of enabling learners to create their own digital montages and video
4) established their own Action Plan for introducing this technique to their teaching.
