WeVideo – Cloud-based video creation platform

WeVideo is an easy to use web based platform to create and share videos. It is ideal for digital storytelling workshops and collaborative projects.

There is a free version – we recommend thhis trial version to explore the potential of this tool and to see if this is what you need – and a version with an educational licence. This license allows the teacher to create a virtual classroom where students can collaborate and be supported by the teacher.

The only ‘disadvantage’ of this platform is that it requires a very good and reliable internet connection to avoid troubles during the editing phase.

The annual subscription for the ‘Educational licence’ includes: 1 hr publishing time per user, 10GB per user, 50 user licenses, all the advanced features. This ‘Educational licence’ costs $399 per year.

WeVideo allows students and teachers to work together on the same video project, make changes, provide feedback, and explain their visual thinking during the creation process, while keeping the student’s data private.

Voice and video recording is embedded in the platform and other digital files that have been uploaded can be integrated with the new recordings.

The platform includes two video editing modes: the ‘story-board mode’ and the ‘timeline mode’. Both options are well explained in video tutorials available on the website in order to help the students to choose the best option. Students have the ability to make creative decisions, demonstrating understanding and mastery of concepts. They can start with the simplified Storyboard editor and work up to the more advanced Timeline editor with video tutorials to guide them along the way.

In the free (trial) version, the only option is to share the videos on the WeVideo website. With the ‘Educational licence’ it is possible to download the files and to share those on YouTube or Vimeo without the watermark of the application.

Learn more on how to create videos through tutorials, lessons, tips made by the WeVideo team https://www.wevideo.com/academy. On the same page, you will find more information about all the features that the specific licence of WeVideo for Education offers.

  • Science
  • Design and technology (ICT)
  • History
  • Geography
  • Art and design
  • Music
  • PSHE (personal, social and health education)

Plan of activities: WeVideo can be applied in the ‘Recording’, ‘Editing’ and ‘Sharing’ phase of the Digital Storytelling approach.

WeVideo – Online video platform
WeVideo is een gebruiksvriendelijke en gemakkleijke online toepassing voor het maken van video’s. Deze toepassing kan gebruikt worden tijdens de stappen ‘opname’ en ‘bewerking’ van het Digital Storytelling proces.
Omdat WeVideo cloud-gebaseerde is, is het mogelijk om met verschillende mensen tegelijk aan hetzelfde project te werken vanop verschillende toestellen: de bestanden (audio, foto’s, video’s …) blijven online (in de cloud) en moeten dus niet op het toestel gedownload worden.
WeVideo – Una piattaforma online per la creazione di video
WeVideo e’ una piattaforma collaborativa per la creazione dei video, che consente il salvataggio e la condivisione dei file online. Suggeriamo di usarla nella fase di ‘recording’ (registrazione) del processo di ‘Digital Storytelling’.
Poiche’ tutto viene salvato online (sul cloud), e’ possibile lavorare sullo stesso progetto da diversi dispositivi o computer senza dover trasferire i file (audio, immagini…) gia’ caricati sulla piattaforma.

  • The objective of the lessons is to develop some of the fundamental competences (4C skills), such as communication, the sharing of ideas and thoughts, and critical thinking.
  • In particular, the intention is to foster communication during debate times before, during and after the museum visit and critical thinking through reflection.

PLAN OF ACTIVITIES

1st lesson. The lesson, in class, starts with a participative debate characterised by various questions asked by the teacher in order to single out previous knowledge and skills. Then, pupils are provided with an introduction on the Roman Civilisation, and on the Roman’s ability to build various aqueducts to bring water from distant springs into their cities.

The introduction is followed by the study of the topographic map of the Baths in Ancient Rome (Google Maps “Baths in Ancient Rome”).

The map is aimed at improving the students’ topographic knowledge of the city of Rome.

2nd Lesson. Pupils experience a visit to the Baths of Diocletian, in Rome, led by a guide who provides the children with information on the political, cultural and social aspects related to the West Roman Empire starting from the observation of historical objects present in the museum as well as from the visit to the thermae themselves.

3rd lesson. firstly, a debate is encouraged on the pupils’ experience at the Baths. At the end of the debate, the students are provided with a description of today’s use of the thermae compared with the same places at the time of Ancient Rome. Secondly, the pupils are asked to artistically elaborate on the information received using of tools such as graphic programmes.

All’introduzione segue lo studio della mappa topografica delle terme dell’antica Roma. La mappa ha l’obiettivo di incrementare l’abilità topografica della città di Roma nei bambini

2° Lezione. Durante la seconda lezione si vivrà l’esperienza della visita alle Terme di Diocleziano di Roma a partire dall’osservazione di alcuni reperti storici presenti nel museo e dall’osservazione delle Terme vere e proprie.
