The challenge of “video as the new language of learning” will be tackled head-on at this year’s ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN (OEB), the largest global e-learning conference for the corporate, education and public service sectors, which takes place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Berlin from 28th to 30th November.
“Video is a powerful and increasingly prevalent learning tool,” says international media executive Adam Salkeld, who is curating VIDEO EDUCA. “Generation Z’s learners are typically highly sophisticated consumers of video as well as native video makers. Educators need to respond to this major shift in the way media content is used and perceived by current generations to ensure effectiveness.”
OEB 2012’s programme is now online and features a series of expert-led video sessions grouped under the name VIDEO EDUCA. The VIDEO EDUCA sessions will focus on all aspects of using video in learning, ranging from the practical production process to learning practitioners’ experiences. In the opening plenary session, the award-winning documentary maker Michael Grigsby will deliver a keynote speech on the role of video in education. As well as making nearly 30 acclaimed films, Grigsby co-founded the Abingdon Film Unit, which works with secondary school pupils to create short documentaries and animated films.
Participants will have the unique opportunity to have their own videos critiqued by industry experts such as Steve Anderson, Executive Producer of BBC’s Question Time, in the pre-conference Video Masterclass. Taking place on Wednesday 28th November, the Video Masterclass will provide participants with a detailed overview of using video to communicate learning, as well as insider knowledge of the production process. From script to screen, the Masterclass will cover the key areas of filmmaking and ensure that all participants leave with the tools and techniques to make video a successful component of learning resources, whatever the budget.
Additional expert speakers and session leaders include Rebekah Tolley, an award-winning film-maker and educator who has produced educational resources for the United Nations, the BBC and Channel 4; and Martin Addison, CEO of Video Arts, the company founded by John Cleese. Video Arts remains one of the world’s leading video training companies and has changed the face of corporate training across the globe.
OEB 2012’s programme features over 400 speakers from more than 40 countries and provides an abundance of networking opportunities, as well as an extensive exhibition area with over 90 exhibitors. For more information, please visit www.online-educa.com.
