Judges Comment: I really liked this video: it was very clear indeed, had some noce touches of humor and the points were well made, without talking. I think it would have been better if the music had been different. Also, I'd like to have been some predictions of future uses of ebooks, like assessments, and the potential downsides of ebooks. Regarding collaboration, the video didn't compare like with like, because the non-ebook sequence showed people annotating not just reading.

Second Place

Winner: Hannah H.
Video: The History Maker

Judges comment: I really liked this, and would have preferred it to have been much longer, exploring other applications in education. As far as it went, even though it possibly implied that AR will be available only through special glasses, this is the best illustration I've seen of why AR would be useful in education.

Third Place Tie

Winner: Tiffany
Video: The Learning Analytic

Judges comment: Well researched and set out in a logical way. I'd have liked to have found out more about the examples given, and the technology. For example, are the emails sent out to students automatically and what do they contain?

Winner: Sarah W.
Video: eBooks and innovation

Judges comment: I think this is great idea, well-executed, with a good script and easy to watch. I may use this myself, with students or for a presentation. I have only two suggestions for the future though: a) speak more slowly b) make the credits easier to read; they fly by too quickly, are too small, and in a dark font on a dark background.
