As technology is rapidly evolving, we are faced with a lot more and faster changes in our everyday life, including in our career. A lot of freshly graduated students experience a shock during the transition from the academic environment to the professional world. Collaborating with IN360, a project that is working on providing career education for children aged between 9 to 12 years old, a digital storytelling workshop was designed to explore the impact of job digital storytelling activity for the development of university student's career management competencies. The workshop was conducted in Vietnam with 19 undergraduate student participants from Hutech University. The participants were assigned into three groups to create three different job storytelling videos in 360°format for children aged between 9 to 12 years old. The career management competencies in the participants are expected to be developed through (1) in-depth interview with someone who works in the field; (2) purposeful 360° video-making activity as a contribution to society; (3) collaborative environment with peers and companies. From the questionnaire, discussion, and observation of the activities, the job digital storytelling program conducted with IN360 did not only established storytelling skills and technology literacy in the university students but also develop some career management competencies in personal management, learning and work exploration, as well as career building areas.

    Proceedings of 2019 IEEE Learning With MOOCS, LWMOOCS 2019 (Proceedings of 2019 IEEE Learning With MOOCS, LWMOOCS 2019)     36 - 41 2019.10

    © 2019 IEEE. This paper discusses the design of a video blog to enhance the social presence of educators in MOOCs. Social presence is considered to be one of the critical factors in education, and MOOCs are no exception. However, in the most existing MOOCs, educators' social presence is limited due to its predefined, linear course structure, as well as text-based semi-synchronous conversation. Hence, this research proposes a daily video blog, which focuses on presenting: 1) Educators Biography; educators' background and experience in the subject area, 2) Educators Feedback; educators' response to learners' questions raised in the course, and 3) Educators Discussion; educators' debate on the latest trends surrounding the course topicto further augment educators' social presences. This paper studies the computer science course of FutureLearn which was conducted in October 2018 and April 2019. A series of short videos were uploaded per day on YouTube and shared with learners alongside the four weeks course. Through observing educators and learners' behavior, as well as conducting interviews with learners, the findings suggest a positive impact of a video blog on enhancing educators' social presence and further opens up new possibilities and new ways in designing MOOCs.

    Copyright © 2018 by SCITEPRESS - Science and Technology Publications, Lda. All rights reserved. This research proposes a cross-cultural program in elementary school aiming at fostering global citizenship education in a classroom through media creation in a program called "KomaKids" In this program, the students' global competence is expected to be developed in four main steps: (1) through learning about foreign culture; (2) by reflecting on their own culture through the production of stop-motion animation; (3) by sharing their impressions through "pen-pals" letter; and, (4) through connecting in real-time with peers from foreign cultures. Since March 2015, 23 workshops were periodically conducted at Japanese, Thai, Brazilian and USA elementary schools. However, the focus of this paper will be on the 2017 academic year program with Japanese, Thai, and Brazilian schools. The result according to the observation shows that the implementation of "KomaKids" program produced noticeable changes in students' global competence of their age.
