Critical Media Literacies in the Twenty-First Century:
Writing Autoethnographies, Making Connections, and Creating Virtual Identities

Rather lengthy article but good for finding other resources. Also contains ideas for educators to use with students to produce their own views of who they are and where they come from, to share their views and to be exposed to other views.

Combining animation, video and text

According to numerous researchers, the efficient way to deliver complex instruction would combine the video or animation with synchronous text that can be annotated and reviewed.   The article refers to QFD, Quality Function Deployment theory which is a branch of TQM, Total Quality Management, with a focus on the customer.  The development of a tool that will allow the text to appear along with the video and animation and that allows the student to annotate and take notes is very cool.

Ongoing Research into the use of video in learning environments.

Roy Pea was one of the first researchers I cited in my PhD dissertation. Still have lots in common.

Goal: Diverse contributions toward improving scientific understanding of learning have in the past few decades begun to pay particular attention to the situational properties of learning events. In part influenced by research methodologies in microsociology, conversational analysis, anthropology, ethology, and ethnomethodology, students of learning processes have made increasing use of video recordings of the physical and social aspects of learning environments. The increasing use of video recording as a form of data collection has the potential to revolutionize research in education and the other social sciences.

Kolb Learning Styles and Effects of Animation and Visuals on Learning

This is the first article that I have found that has examined Kolb’s learning style classifications with the learning from multimedia.   The researchers found that true to Mayer most students benefit from the inclusion of visuals and animations in lectures and text presentation.  However, certain students who did not have the accommodation learning style did not benefit from them.
