Periscope : comment sauvegarder une vidéo au-delà de 24 heures Si vous utilisez Periscope, jusqu’à présent vous étiez peut-être frustrés de ne pas pouvoir laisser les internautes consulter vos vidéos au-delà de 24 heures. En effet, après une journée de mise en ligne, le lien permettant d’accéder à votre vidéo renvoyait vers un message d’erreur. C’est désormais terminé : depuis quelques jours, Periscope a en effet décidé de donner aux utilisateurs la possibilité de laisser leurs vidéos être vues pendant une durée illimitée. Comment faire, me demanderez-vous ? Eh bien, il n’y a pas plus simple : il vous suffit d’ajouter le hashtag #Save dans le titre de votre vidéo. Grâce à cette nouvelle fonctionnalité, votre vidéo diffusée en direct et en streaming pourra être sauvegardée indéfiniment.
One Hundred and One Things About Video In Education The 20th annual conference of the Association for Learning Technology (altc2013) 10–12 September 2013, Nottingham, UK altc2013 Building new cultures of learning Everybody learns, but the ways in which we learn are changing rapidly. 9 Video Tips for a Better Flipped Classroom Flipped Classroom | November 2013 Digital Edition 9 Video Tips for a Better Flipped Classroom Early adopters share how schools can find success with teachers and students alike--even when the technology seems as topsy-turvy as the lessons. In 2007, when Colorado high school teachers Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams began experimenting with recording their lectures in order to spend class time on deeper face-to-face learning with students, they probably didn't foresee the major movement that would grow up around what came to be called the flipped classroom. But six years later, the growth in interest remains exponential, suggesting this is far more than a fad. Just since January 2012, the number of active members on the Flipped Learning Network's Ning site has grown from 2,500 to more than 15,000.
Five-Minute Film Festival: Copyright and Fair Use for Educators I absolutely love it when teachers and students create, remix, and mash up media; it's a fantastic way to encourage deeper learning and media literacy. But one issue that complicates digital freedom of expression is copyright law. While many would argue that copyright law is outdated and badly in need of an overhaul, it's still critical that adults and kids alike have a basic understanding of what's legal and ethical while playing with other people's intellectual property. Here's a list of videos I collected to help you navigate the murky waters of copyright law in educational settings.
Best Practice Hints and Tips: Video in learning and teaching Best Practice Hints and Tips: Video in learning and teaching by sarahhorrigan on May 8, 2014 At our recent East Midlands Learning Technologists’ meeting, ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’, we were exploring the digital video creativity and between us we came up with a list of hints and tips for those wanting to work with video in learning and teaching. I promised I’d share our hints and tips… so… here they are… Preparation How and why to use television to learn Chinese This is the first guest article by Luke Howard, whom I met on one of the Hacking Chinese meet-ups here in Taipei. He speaks Chinese well and when he told me that he relies heavily on watching TV to learn the language, I naturally became interested and wanted to know more. I don’t watch much TV myself, so instead of writing about this myself, I asked Luke to write about it.
Using Vine/Instagram In The Classroom I do a lot of videotaping in my classes, primarily in IB Theory of Knowledge and in my ELL ones, and have been thinking about experimenting with Vine or Instragram’s stop motion clips. Though I posted The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video App “Vine,” I haven’t used it much other than to try it out with videos of my pets A new post by Amy Erin Borovoy over at Edutopia, however, has finally pushed me to give it a try in the classroom. Her post, Five-Minute Film Festival: Vine and Instagram Video in the Classroom, shares some great examples that are perfect models for students. I’m planning on having students in my IB Theory of Knowledge class use Vine or Instagram (at least in our high school, Instagram seems to be the app that many of the kids use) to illustrate the different Ways Of Knowing.
Could Video Feedback Replace the Red Pen? Stills from a video critique by Monash U.’s Michael Henderson. Writing useful comments on students’ work can be a fine art. And for instructors who put a lot of effort into crafting a critique, there’s always a substantial risk students will skip the written feedback and go right to the grade. When Michael Henderson is grading his students’ final assignments, he likes to skip the written comments for them. Instead of a red pen, Mr. Henderson, a senior lecturer in education at Monash University, in Australia, takes out a video camera. 5 Interactive Tools to Embed in ThingLink Video In the final week of the ThingLink Teacher Challenge we asked participants to create a lesson to Engage Students with ThingLink for Video. Participants learned to Embed a Google Form in a ThingLink Video to minimize distractions and provide students with direct access to an interactive form without leaving the video. The ability to embed interactive content right inside of a video is very powerful. Let's take a closer look at 5 interactive tools to embed in ThingLink Video. Kick it Up a Notch You can copy the embed code from any 3rd party tool with an embed code into ThingLink Video and it will appear live.
