The informativeness, timeliness, and placement of the comments in this video is exemplary.
During today's D&R meeting, Daniel and I presented The Teachers College Curriculum Studies Program. The project is a collection of curriculum related materials from all 50 states and US territories such as Guam and Puerto Rico. Our goal at the meeting was to solicit feedback from the team on how we might be able to market the project at Teachers College and beyond. The files currently sit in PocketKnowledge.
Below are some of the ideas generated by the groups at the meeting:
1) How to market the project to TC and organizations outside TC?
- Having a sorting option for user so users ...
This is a short video based on a library talk given by Kay Cassell on tips for getting published, accompanied by some lo-fi animation. (As someone who has never published anything, I thought these suggestions were helpful). If anyone has any feedback about this video format for library talks, that would be great. Trying to find a good way to present workshop-style presentations through video, (i.e. how to write grants).
Hi everyone, this is my first week at EdLab and my first blog post.
I've spent a little bit of time looking at Critter and trying to get a perspective on what it does from an outsider's point of view. I think that Critter can be applied to a wide variety of projects, and I hope that we can come up with a slogan that evokes these uses and personalizes it for someone being introduced to Critter for the first time.
As opposed to existing video systems, Critters helps manage the noise of free-for-all text posts. On Critter, you can effectively annotate a video and have a valuable discussion...
Next week Teachers College Record will be publishing an article entitled, "Policy, Technology and Practice in Cyber Charter Schools." Based on the episode of "The Voice" below it sounds like it is going to be very relevant to all the work we've been doing around online learning. Ting, Chingfu, and Jess, can one of you write up a "Research Digest" for the article?
Thanks to Erin, Jeff, and Jill for getting this episode out. The quality of "The Voice" keeps getting better. Are you all doing something differently during pre and post production?
One other question I had was can we upload this video into Critter? I would like to experiment with the Research Digest team potentially discussing/commenting on this video before we review the article.
Here's part 3 of the Media Show in the classroom series! Students learned storyboarding and scriptwriting, and started working on remixing their commercials:
Here's an experimental video series that Josh and I worked on this week. It is meant to be a very short (i.e. 60-90sec) introduction to people who work at the EdLab, the circulation desk, the 2nd floor and elsewhere. The production concept is (in Joachim's words) "quick and dirty," in the same vein as the seminar snapshots. They are incredibly easy to produce (45 minutes to shoot and a couple hours to edit both of them) and I think a regular publication schedule on Tuesdays and Fridays might be fun. Thanks to Josh for playing the part of Himrod and composing the music, Erin for helping with camera and Luke for camera work and sound! Also a special thanks to Molly and Jeff for being guinea pigs in this project!
Let me know what you think!
Here's a video that I filmed and edited about the Makerbot demonstration, held in the Library a week or so ago (thanks to Robert for doing sound!):
If you follow my posts on the blog, you know I have a real passion for numbers/statistics (e.g., Disruptive Research: Sexy Statisticians, Data Mining and the Obama Campaign, particularly as they relate to sports and education (e.g., The No-Stats All-Star, The Death of Moneyball. And if you have any doubts about the importance of statistics, check out this TED talk titled, "Arthur Benjamin's formula for changing math education" (3:02).
