The European Commission has granted new media educational courses with the focus of video production in Berlin from 2013 to 2016. The courses are for teachers from Europe (but not Germany). Interested teachers can apply for funding through their national Socrates / LLP Agency. More information about the courses can be found on here.
What is video education?
The viducate network has produced an extensive collection of papers focussing on the theme of video and media education. The papers include conceptural ideas, an insight into European perspectives and a section with best practise examples pointing out how video education can be put into practise across different educational sectors.
We have a limited amount of free printed versions, but you will need to cover the postage. Please contact us if you are interest in a copy. Please pass the document on to your colleagues and let us know if you are interested in a future publication of similiar kind.
Viducate is about video in education and the best starting point is our best practise video gallery. The gallery contains selected material linked with the themes of creativity, active citizenship and intercultural communication. It also offers video documenting the project and interviews with partners.
The gallery provides also further pedagogical background information - who has produced the video, what is behind it and how can it be transferred to other educational sectors or learning environments.
Take your time and explore what we have uploaded there and let us know if you have something you would like to see included there.
The viducate network - an initiative to promote video education across all educational sectors in Europe.
Our vision is: "Viducate is concerned with the development of active citizenship in intercultural contexts at all levels of formal and informal education. Video and multimedia form the core of this non-prescriptive pedagogy of production in the information society."
