Checking in to share some exciting news (and ask the EdLab/TC community for some help--see below): my students here in San Diego at High Tech High International have been recognized as finalists in the Whitehouse's 'Race to the Top Commencement Chalenge' and I'd appreciate your help by viewing the final...
I had the pleasure of co-producing my last video with Ting from Research--by planning before her trip to China and debriefing what she saw and captured, we were able to put together a narrative story line, voice over script and storyboard for this first video.
Ting will be blogging about the experience from her perspective--the steps to making digital video--from shooting ratios to rough cuts and screen captures.
I hope our trial and error method will provide a good starting point for more collaborative production in the future at EdLab.
As AERA has extended their deadline, maybe i...
For anyone who remembers our shoot with Martha Cooper, I wanted to share that we've started publishing results from that EdLab experiment.
I'll post the video here, but also encourage you to check out the whole experience by looking at
the dedicated page on AfterEd.Tv.
(also, check it out in FULLSCREEN, thanks to the new & improved 'Josh player')

I heard about this film/website/movement called "Beyond Good Intentions" from my old colleagues still working in Cambodia in NGOs and development projects.
I'm excited to see documentary film intersecting with international aid in the form of a website where people can watch and learn about...what international aid/development is. The site aims to look at the effectiveness of international aid, and will publish videos weekly, moving across the southern hemisphere visible on their homepage.
So it's part documentary, part online dialog...
The entire 'School of Informatics' will phase out old methods of taking attendance and seeks to integrate informal (and formal?) assessment, class resource access and project development using iPhones. I've only been able to find short blurbs in English, here in the Mainichi.
You can piece together a few more details (and glean some ideas of what iPhone-U might look like from screenshots) in a blog post here....
Last Saturday I had the opportunity to attend the 'Project New Media Literacies' conference at MIT.
The event was part conference, part professional development and ALL PR and outreach for MIT's Project NML in the Comparative Media Studies department. More specifically they wanted to plug their new tool, The Learning Library.
We're (Frederik & Doug) here live at the
New Media Literacies conference @ MIT.
I'm going to post links and thoughts, then edit this into a blog post post-conference.
Important reading for this conference: The White Paper on Participatory Culture: MacArthur Foundation Paper by Henry Jenkins, et al:

We met up with Martha Cooper this morning and completed our Google map to represent the walk we did last week.
Skye and I are running off to a shoot in Brooklyn now, but I wanted to post our collaborative work here before it slips out of my mind. Please check back to this post later for resources (links and our flickr set)
If you haven't already read about it, please check out the gameplan for seminar this week.
Note that there is a little bit of 'homework' requested, and I'd like to thank those of you who have already emailed me your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The photo can be of ANY 'text in public space' and please keep a note of the location/address/cross-streets of where you shoot the photo. I'd prefer it if they're from NYC.
I'll be sharing a reduced version of my MA project, and asking you, the EdLab communit...
