Developing a pedagogy using student-generated digital video: A case study of five schools

Project Member(s): Schuck, S.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Apple Computer Australia Pty Ltd (Apple Partnership Funding)

Start year: 2003

Summary: This project investigated the value and use of student-generated digital video for enhancing pedagogy in K-12 schools. It aimed to identify, examine and analyse pedagogical practices in relation to use of this technology in five case schools. A further aim was to articulate the principles, contexts and approaches underlying these practices. An understanding of the practices and approaches which enhance or constrain pedagogy in these five cases will contribute to a future larger study. Principles of good practice developed in this study will be used to inform future research on models for enhancing pedagogy with digital video in education.
