Abstract

There is
a need for the European education system to adapt in order to cope with the

changing
needs of the labour market. ICT and social media are recognized as tools

that are
radically transforming the process of learning. Thus, the objective of this

study is
to define the impacts of using the videos in education. To define the impacts

the
framework of Human Impact Assessment (HuIA) is used. HuIA is a user-centred

approach
that clarifies the impacts of different actions and options, providing

information
for decision-making and helping to deal with conflicts. According to

earlier
research, the regular human impact assessment of new technologies at

individual
and community levels may stimulate their adoption by various groups of

people.
Information technology usage is a rather multi-faceted process, in which

both
internal and external factors should be recognised. Especially, teachers’

perceptions
and experiences of the integration of information technology into

education
have not received extensive research attention, even though those may be

crucial,
too. According to the results, there are several positive and negative

impacts.
The collaboration between teachers has increased and the use of videos has

raised
the understanding about the videos in education. However, the use of videos
































may also mean increases in teachers’ workload
and challenges in time management.
