And the winners are…pupils at Dinnington Comprehensive!

On Monday, the DeFT project team took part in a very special event – the mini-Oscars at Dinnington comprehensive where the Chris Welch and his pupils revealed the results of their hard work for the case study. They explored the use of instructional videos for enhancing digital literacy and issues related to student-produced Open Educational Resources. The pupils turned out to be very creative in their interpretation of the brief, which was to create an instructional video on a topic of their choice and shared with the world their knowledge on  tea-making, plum-tree planting, hamster-feeding, e-safety and cartwheels.

Mini-Oscars at Dinnington

There was red carpet, bow-ties and (non-alcoholic) champagne  and of course awards to recognise the efforts of the directors and the supporting crew. This is where the media technicians deserve a special mention – the case study would not have been possible without Jodi and Rob supporting the group every step of the way.  They are still putting the final touches on the videos which should soon be released onto YouTube and so others will be able to see for themselves how easy it is to cartwheel or make a decent cuppa!
