The EDtalks collection of video clips is a great source of material for the beginning of the year staff meetings and planning sessions in school.
The EDtalks videos have been taken at education conferences, schools and institutions around New Zealand over the last two years. They have proved to be a useful source of new ideas, current research, practitioner experience and advice, as well as a way to learn about new trends and initiatives in schools.
Video channels for easy selection
The video content is collected in channels . The main EDtalks channel features videos collected from schools, early childhood centres, seminars, and workshops during the last two years. The conference channel features clips from the various events that CORE Education hosts, organises or records on video. The Ten Trends channel features CORE’s prognosis on the coming ten major ICT trends that will make an impact upon education.
Tags help find pools of videos on a theme
The most effective way to explore video material is by using the tags.
For example, you may be planning to review your school’s cyber safety strategies – there are 7 clips tagged “netsafe”, 5 tagged “digital literacy”, and 4 tagged “digital citizens”. Once you have selected useful clips, they can be downloaded and used in your planning meetings, or sent out to teachers as a link for them to view before the meeting.
