Henry Jenkins:  "Last time, I shared with you the syllabus for my course on Cultural Studies of Communication.

Ben Travers:  "With the studio's first ever original kids' shows debuting this summer, Amazon is trying to break into children’s programming from a groundbreaking new angle: long-term education."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, May 26, 2014 5:38 PM

Journalists and society-at-large do #Amazon and viewers a huge disservice by tagging kid-centric content as '#binge-viewing' as if putting the viewer in control of what he/she watches is a bad thing--not to mention that it has nothing to do with what Amazon is trying to accomplish with their programming for preschoolers.  


Creators working with Amazon have intentionally tried to step out of their adult bias and look through eyes of preschoolers.  Their goal is to create engaging content that triggers curiosity and creativity.   This is the same approach I advocate for storytelling and central to the persona development and audience profiling in the courses & workshops we teach via Fielding's Masters program.  The fact that Amazon streaming allows for viewer controlled consumption encourages other activities because there is no #FOMO by playing through scheduled broadcasts.  Seriously, how is this even remotely negative?  When will we get over blaming the audience for exercising choice in content consumption?  I get how this is disruptive to current business models and how media companies might not be thrilled at having to be more creative to earn attention and loyalty, but consumers should be celebrating not labeling and journalists should get on board.

 Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios:

:

"We're not asking them to sit in front of the television and tie them to a block of programming [like with standard broadcast television]. They can pause it.

They can rewatch it. It offers up a nice amount of flexibility, so I don't think it's just about keeping them in front of a 'screen' for us."

In part 2 of an excellent set of articles, Tyler Weaver puts the controversies surrounding video games and comics into historical context; and chooses the dawn of Marvel's Universe as "the most perfect encapsulation of a shared storyworld out there".

Nice collection of infographic tools from an expert in digital curation.

 

David Baker's curator insight, April 3, 2014 11:47 AM

I am adding this to my seminar resources. Having another set of tools for my teachers to create their PIE Infographics is important.  Creating visual representations of learning is such a powerful learning for teachers and is a skill they can transfer to their classroom and for students to create in the classroom.

Mobento is good. It collects all kinds of educational videos. But what makes it revolutionary is that you can search the videos based on the words spoken in them!
