"Since we talked yesterday about the plethora of different types of visuals available to present information, we thought it might be useful to take a look at why visuals are useful as classroom tools, and some do-s and don’t-s of using visuals. Enter the handy infographic below. While this particular visual isn’t necessarily geared towards teachers, …"

21 Free Hitchcock Movies online | Open  Culture | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"Alfred Hitchcock, the master of suspense, directed more than 50 feature films during his long career. Today, his work is admired worldwide, and he’s considered one of our finest directors. Although many of his landmark films remain copyrighted, some of his important works, particularly his early ones, have slipped into the public domain."

"Would the nostalgics and apologists of the “good old days” still hold the same views after viewing these vintage ads ? This list may clash with the upscale world of Mad Men… but is far removed from our times ?"

Colours are naturally part of any picture we contemplate, either we've created it ourselves, or we merely view it... Their world is full with symbols and echoes our imagination -that may be why it looks so enthralling to me.

This infographic also makes a good resource for ELteaching in many domains : graphics & art, marketing, advertising, poetry/literature (-- symbolic language), and so on : language activities (especially for lexis building) may be developed for ESL-EFL learners.

"Le top 250 de Imdb est l’une des listes les plus célèbres du net. [...] elle offre un classement des meilleurs films de l’histoire. Jonathan Kheog a réussi l’exploit de tous les faire tenir dans une vidéo de 2 minutes et 30 secondes. Et vu qu’il avait encore de la place, il en a rajouté 53 autres pour un total de 303."

---> Un (tout) petit extrait de cette vidéo pourrait être utilisé en classe d'anglais comme warming up -en guise d'oral ou writing prompts, pour faire ensuite développer une brève 'film-review' des films reconnus, par exemple... ou autre  :o)

Ce n'est pas un hasard si les "instants suspendus" qui émaillent l'œuvre du peintre américain cinéphile Edward Hopper (1882-1967) inspirèrent Wenders, Jarmusch, Lynch ou même Hitchcock et Antonioni. A l'occasion de la grande rétrospective qui lui est consacrée au Grand Palais (Paris), retour sur les liens ténus entre Hopper et le cinéma."

A Taxonomy of Ideas ? | Visualising the nuances of a language

A Taxonomy of Ideas ? | Visualising the nuances of a language | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

 

"[...] a ‘neat’ idea is not the same as a ‘brilliant’ idea. A ‘bad’ idea is not quite the same as a ‘dumb’ idea.

But why?

I started wondering: is there an invisible language of ideas?  [...] Could you visualize and plot the most popular words used to describe ideas? Would that unveil the structure? And would doing that be a ‘nice’ idea? Or a ‘terrible’ one? [...]"

Besides, visualising a 'funny' idea comic ms bold font definitely doesn't make you feel as if you were viewing an 'abstract' one... arial black ! :o)
