Featured Editorial: What ethical challenges do researchers face with videos and children?

Videos help researchers understand very young children in ways we could not have imagined before, for example with body and non-verbal communication. But what is the notion of informed consent with children? How can their freedom of expression be granted, according to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, if their right to have a say and being involved in decisions means, ultimately, that their needs are fully understood? This editorial starts an important ethical discussion, and challenges blanket solutions when infants and young children are involved. 


#LITTLEPUBLICS, a symposium organized by the Association for Visual Pedagogies, will be held on June 19th and 20th 2018 at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.    

Call for papers: Video Ethics in Education

The potential for video to inform, construct, illuminate, distort and perhaps even produce certain types of pedagogies is enormous. Providing a means of understanding teaching and learning through such visual means, however, poses inevitable ethical challenges. The journal welcomes submissions to this new collection offering considerations for the future of video ethics for education in a contemporary era of visual 'open-ness'.

Call for papers: Video Activism

Video as a form of activism is not a new concept. However, the pedagogical potential of video has yet to be explored in this domain. This special issue seeks to examine the opportunities for video to play a transformative role in education through film genres such as documentary and other visual forms of activism.

Aims and scope

This is the first video journal in the field of education with the purpose of capturing the latest developments in educational practice. The journal aims to develop integrated visual approaches to educational research and practitioner knowledge in order to encourage innovation and to establish new research frontiers in education.

In particular, the journal focuses on 3 main areas:

Educational research at large, in all forms of education and pedagogy, containing a strong video/visual component. The video component must be outstanding either in the methodology, in the way data were collected, or results are shown. This includes in particular:

  • Teacher education
  • Classroom teacher and child observation
  • Workplace learning
  • Technology and social learning across multi-disciplinary domains of practice

Visual approaches to educational research:

  • Research on new visualization methodologies
  • Research and case-based studies to facilitate video data collection, dissemination, critical engagement and analysis
  • Integrated approaches to educational research

Research in visual and digital humanities, including philosophical reflection on the use of digital and visual resources in the humanities, particularly:

  • Philosophical approaches in the study of visuality in education and society
  • Other forms of visual pedagogy such as documentary, film and social media
  • Cultural analytics, cultural studies and ethnography
