Two papers on video by an educational researcher

  • "Observing tutorial dialogues collaboratively" doi:10.1080/03640210701863396
    It shows that watching a video of a tutorial could be as effective as being a student in a tutorial, provided the watching was done by pairs of peers, with a worksheet.

    "Why students learn more from dialogue- than monologue-videos" doi:10.1080/10508406.2016.1204546 [Shows that filming dialogue, as opposed to a lone presenter, can be very effective. (Cf. chat show hosts, not just "guests" having a solo slot.)]

    Places were Papert's term "constructionism" is defined


    A variety of points from the educational literature are discussed, touching on whether video is useful educationally; what is involved in authoring video; and what it takes for that authoring task to be fully meaningful for students.
