for Class 3 AM
ET620 Mutlimedia Design in the Classroom
- Announcements and Questions
- Thank you for your understanding for my absence on Tuesday and expressions of sympathy for my aunt
- Thank you to Natalie for coordinating class on Tuesday
- Pick-A-Partner Projects will be graded and returned tomorrow (sorry for the delay)
- PowerPoint with VBA is due next class
- We will spend a good bit of time with that today
- We can be flexible with deadlines if necessary, but ...
- Sticking to the schedule tends to work out best, especially for people who have plans after the semester
- The deadlines are more for you than for me so if you (and
your group on group projects) agree that an extension would be best,
I'm fine with that
- Use email to exchange VBA tips and questions
- We decided on a 30-minute lunch break meaning class ends no later than 3:00
- Video Repository
- Check out the great videos in the ET620 Video Repository
- Keep adding your videos
- As you create videos or come across videos, feel free to list
more than two from each category; two is just the minimum (six total)
- Fall registration started on Monday
- Cohort people are signing up for the internship
- Be sure that those of you working together sign up for the same section
- Video Analysis, adapted from
Sara Kajder and Carl Young in Teaching with Digital Video (edited by
Bull and Bell)
- Discuss: What do the following two aphorisms mean to you? Where do you stand on the continuum?
- Curiosity killed the cat.
- Where there is curiosity, a mouse may be caught.
- Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXX-WuZyaRo
- What is the dilemma facing the citizens of Cicely?
- What are the positions presented during the town hall meeting and how are those positions supported?
- Where do you stand in terms of the positions presented?
- How does this fit on the "curiosity" continuum?
- To find out how this turns out in the show, watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWYrhMBulwg&feature=plcp
- Digital Video: Create
- Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCRGxou09Ow
- Other references for Digital Storytelling
- Using the 5-7 pictures you took, write a one-minute story
- The story can be about your family, your school, your hobbies, your childhood, your neighborhood, your place of worship, etc.
- Assemble the pictures in iMovie, Windows MovieMaker, or Photostory 3.
- Narrate and add copyright-friendly background music.
- Share with the class
- Reflect: email me a brief paragraph about how you followed the DDD-E design process while creating this digital story.
- Digital Video: Issues from Last Class
- Some people had difficulty downloading the video from last class
- Some videos are hard to download, and other videos are hard to conver (unfortunately, SWF is a hard-to-convert format)
- I am still exploring tools, but I have used Firefox Download Helper
