The Use of Hypervideo in Teacher Education

Thomas Winkler, Martina Ide, Michael Herczeg


This contribution describes the development and use of hypervid as part of five teacher training workshops for secondary (middle and high) school programs in Germany. The workshops provide a foundation for theoretical discussion and practical experiences to demonstrate how hypervideo systems like hypervid can become a new medium of complex knowledge construction: not lexically linear, but multi-and hypermedial. The workshops have been designed to teach pre-and in-service teachers to aid young people in constructing knowledge that is self-determined, socially interactive and rich in connotative implications. This use of new media is guided by systemic-constructivist pedagogy and curriculum development. The results of the study establish the feasibility of using hypervid in the classroom and the potential for participating teachers to extend learning culture with the use of contemporary media.
