VIDEO EDUCA is the world’s leading event for video in education. Uniquely we bring award-winning professionals from the TV and film world to share their expertise with educators. If you want to raise your video learning to the next level then VIDEO EDUCA is a must-attend event.
This year’s programme includes practical workshops and LABs, discussions about the latest in video pedagogy, the Masterclass, Video Doctor and our special Open Learning observatory with the OEB Youth Camera Team.
Keep an eye out for the group of budding young filmmakers who will be taking part in a VIDEO EDUCA project to learn the skills of storytelling, camera work, production and editing.
Under the mentorship of award-winning filmmaker and educator Rebekah Tolley, the group of eight students will be completing a series of video homework assignments prior to the event to prepare them for a full-day of shooting at OEB on Thursday, December 4th.
By the end of their ‘live-editing’ session on Friday afternoon, the students will have created their first-ever films.
