Social Video Learning

The Learning and teaching method Social Video Learning has been awarded nationally and internationally. It combines the advantages of video learning with those provided by personal and direct exchange. Structured and guided by assignments, the participants learn to watch carefully and comment on relevant situations directly in the video. These comments can be shared amongst all group members and be discussed directly within the video. The didactical design of these assignments is targeted to develop real competences. Therefore a deep reflection on content is the result.

Each standard edubreak®campus package offers a set of specific tools. The set of basic tools contains the social video player, a blog function, e-portfolio function as well as concept maps. These tools enable an interactive and collaborative learning setting with and especially within videos.

To see one owns seeing!

Everything in our learning philosophy is designed around reflection and social exchange within videos. We start with the advantages of classical video-learning and enrich them with theres three qualitative components:
 
  1. The way how and where a video is being recorded
  2. The usage of the internet
  3. Pinpointed video comments with true discussion directly in the video (video annotation)
 
By combining these three components a didactical magic happens - Social Vide Learning. Learners start to collect situations via video that are meaningful to them and point out important situations within the video and reflect them. They discuss their thoughts with other learners directly within the video and in doing so, they start to find arguments for their own point of view. At the end you have a learner who is a specialist due to the fact that he or she has learned to take on multiple perspectives with the result of being able to see ones own seeing.
