Critical Perspectives in Education
It is important to SEE beyond the words when discoursing about critical issues in education. One has to have an open mind in seeing both sides of the discussion, and analyze perspectives critically.

Like it or not, you must own your social media reputation | Critical Perspectives in Education | Scoop.it

With each passing day political parties and citizens, business leaders and employees, and brands and consumers, have an increasing array of media outlets through which to share and access personal information. As such, it’s more important than ever to own and manage your reputation before another person or institution defines it for you.

YouTube makes it easier for playlist creators to tell a story with new intro and outro feature

YouTube makes it easier for playlist creators to tell a story with new intro and outro feature | Critical Perspectives in Education | Scoop.it

Excerped from article:

"YouTube decided to help out the community a bit by releasing a new intro and outro feature that lets you insert professional clips in between your videos easily.

 

YouTube Engineer Eric Lundberg said:

"You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long."

 

These particular features allow video creators to tell a full story in a series of videos. Even if you’re not making your own videos, creating a playlist is a way of providing a valuable service to the community."

You can insert professional clips in between your videos, you can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions, add royalty-free music tracks and your interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account and are eligible for monetization if they are 15 seconds long.

These are my favorite apps for demonstration projects and presentations. Click on the icon or the link to connect to the iTunes Store. HINT: I use many of these apps with screenshots taken from what we are studying. To take a screenshot on an Apple device, hit the home button and the on/off button at the same time and the device will automatically capture whatever is showing on your app’s screen. Need a photo of Abe Lincoln? Google it, zoom and frame it so it fits the entire screen, then take your screenshot. You can now import it as a photo into most of the apps below.

5 Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing | ReadWriteWeb

5 Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing | ReadWriteWeb | Critical Perspectives in Education | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"We're witnessing another sea change in Web publishing.

There's a new edge and it's populated by the likes of Medium (a kind of categorized Tumblr), Branch (the sister site of Medium, for discussions), App.net (a microblogging platform) and Svbtle (an elite network of indie bloggers).

 

Here are five key drivers for this new wave of publishing services.

 

1. Publishing Is Getting More Casual:

The publishing process less onerous. It's now less about composition (being a writer or blogger) and more about expressing your thoughts as simply as possible.

Not only is the type of content less formal now, the design is stripped back too. All of the latest web publishing tools have minimalist, in some cases almost naked, interfaces.

 

2. The Web Is Moving From Pages to Streams:

This new wave of tools is looking for ways to deliver content in a more flexible way.

Veteran blogger Anil Dash declared that he wants "a clean, simple stream of my writing, organized by topic and sorted with the newest stuff on top."

 

3. Topic Organization Is Finally Happening:

This is essentially what Medium is attempting to do, with its "collections" - which are posts by various people organized by topic or theme. Content on the Social Web has become far too chaotic and it desparately needs organization.

 

4. Quality Is In Vogue:

The Web is awash with content - much of it poor quality. Medium is explicit about wanting to change this:

"Our philosophy is that quality begets quality, so we will grow Medium smartly, ensuring that our platform is valuable to everyone in this increasingly mobile, connected, and noisy world."

 

5. Startups Are Searching For Non-Advertising Business Models:

Finally, the new wave of publishing services are all seemingly anti-advertising. There is experimentation happening again on the Web - which is a very positive sign..."
