[Xmca-l] Re: Video Publishing??

Dear Mike and everyone,
Julia Snell and I have done this with both a journal article (in *Reading
Research Quarterly*) and book (Routledge).  This is also a good opportunity
to announce the publication of the book, which was released a few days ago
in the U.S., and I think might interest people on the list (details
In the *Reading Research Quarterly *case, the publisher put the clip (8
minutes of classroom interaction) on vimeo (http://*vimeo*.com/17810542).
Though we have permissions from the teacher, parents and kids, we felt
uncomfortable about making the video freely available, so the link is
buried in a subscribers-only "Supporting Information" section on the
publishers' web-site.  I've spoken to a number of people who've read the
article but unfortunately failed to notice or find the video; in retrospect
we should have made the announcement of the video more prominent, and
sought to embed it on the publishers' web-site (or opened our own site --
more on that below).  In any event, the video can be found by searching on
vimeo (if you know what to look for).  The article, by the way, is
"Promises and Problems of Teaching With Popular Culture: A Linguistic
Ethnographic Analysis of Discourse Genre Mixing in a Literacy Lesson", and
can be found here:
The book is called *Better than Best Practice: Developing Teaching and
Learning through Dialogue.  *It includes detailed analysis of eight
episodes of primary school literacy lessons (from a London primary school),
along with tools for teachers and teacher educators to engage in critical
reflection on the teaching and learning documented, and on the
possibilities and challenges of dialogic pedagogy.  In keeping with the
book's dialogic spirit, there are also 17 critical commentaries written by
scholars, practitioners and administrators, including people active on
XMCA, such as Greg Thompson, Jennifer Vadeboncoeur and Jayne White.
We wanted to open up a web-site for the book, to perform two functions:
access to the video and transcripts, and a forum for continuing the
conversation with readers.  Again, we were uncomfortable about making the
video freely available, so we asked the publisher to put it in a
password-protected corner of the publisher-hosted companion web-site, which
can be found here: http://www.routledge.com/cw/lefstein-9780415618441/.
Much to our dismay, the publishers have hosted the video on youtube
(privately -- you can only access the video with the link), and embedded it
on the password-protected section of the site.  So far this solution seems
to work OK.
However, the publisher was unable to accommodate our ideas about an
interactive blog with readers, so we ended up opening up our own site:
http://dialogicpedagogy.com/.  If you're interested in the book you can
find details there about the episodes, key ideas, etc.  Setting up our own
web-site was surprisingly easy, and we think a much better solution than
using the publishers' site, since we have direct control over content, and
can change things immediately.
Finally, we decided to partially mask participants' identities through a
"cartoonizing" filter.  You can see examples of the effect here (
http://dialogicpedagogy.com/the-episodes/), and a discussion of how and why
we've done this here (

I hope you find this helpful.
Best wishes,
