Active learning goes mobile:Video-making as a mobile methodology

Late in 2021, MobiLab supported a very innovative pedagogic activity merging mobilities studies and video-making. The training was offered to DiSSGeA’s students from the Mobility Studies and the Local Development Master programmes and had great success! The activity has been developed with film-maker Giovanna Volpi in collaboration with Nova Didaxis 3.0 project. During three sessions, students have had the opportunity to learn the principles of screenwriting and shooting with a smartphone. Moving from theory to practice, they have also worked in group to produce multifarious clips. A truly student-centred activity, students have then suggested how to edit the materials they produced. As a result, a few collaborative videos have been produced. Playing in different manners with the same clips, each video is about talking, embodying, and emplacing mobility from diverse points of view. Watch them on MoHu Mediaspace.
