Using a video annotation tool for authentic learning: A case study
conference contributionposted on 2011-01-01, 00:00 authored by Meg Colasante
In e-learning there is increasing need for active learning designs that highlight reflection. Video sharing is one such option. The Media Annotated Tool (MAT), developed at RMIT University, provides the opportunity for students to annotate their own and other students’ videos of learning tasks. Teachers provide feedback, coaching and scaffolding using this tool to develop professional skills. This approach provides an authentic learning opportunity, where students engage in ‘real world’ experiences. This paper uses the results of a pilot study on MAT conducted in 2009 and links the design and learning experiences of students to the nine characteristics of authentic learning as outlined by Herrington et al., (2010).
