Abstract

The recent convergence of video and computer technologies presents new opportunities and challenges in education. Video production resources such as cameras and video editing software are now widely available in many schools and homes. The ease of use of these resources has encouraged teachers to use them across the curriculum with students of all ages. Furthermore, students often find this work exhilarating and perceive these tasks as deeply relevant and highly contextual. This paper probes the authentic nature of student developed video projects and builds on the literature relating to authentic learning with new educational technologies.
