Why a Professional Website Video Experience is Crucial for Business Marketing | Duct Tape Media | Scoop.it

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings | Duct Tape Media | Scoop.it

"We have heard the complaint or issued it ourselves one too many times: “They don’t read!”

 

But can Digital Media provide some simple pedagogical models to promote a more active engagement with that most ancient and passive form of learning: the reading assignment? In this article, I describe the use of Wikis (web pages that people can easily edit as a group) to get students to summarize, ask questions, and comment on a reading before they even meet for class. And while many new—and old—tools can be used to accomplish similar results, what is innovative about this approach is that whereas before reading and writing was something students were supposed to do individually in the isolation of their rooms or the library, now—thanks to Wikis—it is a project they tackle collaboratively as a class. The goals of this critical pedagogy are thus both modest and radical, at the intersection of old and new technologies: to use Digital Media to change the way students interact with texts."

 

Assignment provided and reflection on it's impact on student learning. A really worthwhile read!

This has been on my mind a lot lately. It frustrates me that so many teachers are ready to gather around Wikipedia like a pinata and beat it down. It is still sooooooo young. It can become something really special if we nurture it and encourage wise use. For example, the most powerful part is not the front page but by going under the hood and looking at the discussions about what should be on the front page. Helping our students find those discussions is so important. Ken

Professionally-Looking Presentations Templates: Slidevana for PowerPoint

Professionally-Looking Presentations Templates: Slidevana for PowerPoint | Duct Tape Media | Scoop.it

 

 

The Slidevana templates collection (which was available until now only for Keynote for Mac) allows anyone who does not graphic design skills to assemble professional-looking presentations by editing directly the content of the sample templates provided in this collection.

While I am not commercially associated with Slidevana, I can only recommend their product as it delivers on its promise, it's fairly priced and it can really save you a lot of time.

 

In addition, if you are not fully satisfied you can ask for a full refund, and, from my own experience, their customer support service is very good.

Content Curation Comes To Video: Introducing ShortForm | Business 2 Community

Content Curation Comes To Video: Introducing ShortForm | Business 2 Community | Duct Tape Media | Scoop.it

Content curation? Every time I consult with businesses on social media strategy, the theme of content curation always comes up.

I already wrote about why everyone’s content is king on Twitter, because for companies to be considered true resources of information, they need to be sharing content that isn’t always written by themselves.

This is why the role of a Content Czar in social media marketing is so important.

On a professional level, whenever we are sharing a link of resourceful content on Twitter, LinkedIn, or even Facebook, we are playing the role of content curator without knowing it.

Curating is more than clicking a share button (1 hour video by Steve Rosenbaum)

Ken's Key Takeaway:

Thank you to Giuseppe Mauriello for this quality review of Steve Rosenbaum's Video

 

 

This presentation will explore how to plan a video curation strategy, how to determine what sources are appropriate for your visitors, and how you invite and curate user-generated and user-submitted content.

 

From article on Streamingmedia.com:

"Curation can solve the problem of abundance online, Steven Rosenbaum explained at the recent Streaming Media East conference in New York City. While creative professionals occasionally disagree with curation, it's a way for site owners to present strong material to site visitors and cut through the clutter.

"Content curators are distributors of collections," explained Rosenbaum.

...

That's the abundance problem. If you went ahead and made all the curators in the world go away, you'd still have this signal-to-noise problem that we laid out at the beginning of the talk. So, absolutely no way is curation the thing that is the enemy of creation."

 

A well-planned content curation strategy doesn't simply present a list of videos to site visitors. It presents a collection with personality. When curating materials to present, think about the persona that makes that collection unique..."

High Quality Stock Photos for Pennies: Kozzi

High Quality Stock Photos for Pennies: Kozzi | Duct Tape Media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: I have had a bit of hard time myself believing the prices I was reading on the home page of Kozzi.com. This online image library, first of all gives you 365 high-quality, high-resolution images to download at no cost. Just hop over on their site and you can a top pick download without needing to pay anything. 

 

Then, if Kozzi has tickled your fancy enough, you may want to consider signing up for a Designer Plus account, and for 1.6$/month you can now download 25 high quality images a day. Five bucks a month give you access to 75-a-day downloads, and for some 11.4€/mo you can downoad up to 250 images a day. 

 

I know, it's hard to believe, but I have gone on the site, registered myself and everything worked as promised. I may say that the collection is not obviously as broad and rich as some of the popular commercial online stock libraries, but I think that the huge difference in price more than justifies it.

 

Kozzi provides some great, beautiful images, as well as vector clip art, and video clips. For each image it provides detailed metadata and separate downloads for all resolutions from 441 X 294  to a

whopping 7.7MP 5496 X 3664 size.

Thank you for the review of Kozzi.com. Educators and bloggers alike have discovered Kozzi.com to be the ultimate professional resource for images.

Not only do we have images now but we also have Video as well. Kozzi.com is currently traveling the globe to bring you the best stock photography and video that we can provide.

Our team just returned from the following places and you wil see lots of new stock form them.

Antarctica, Romania, The Philippines, and Argentina. Wait till you see the awesome Icebergs and Penguins. there is a little bit of video online from Antarctica now. here is the link to some. http://www.kozzi.com/free-photo/24743739/video-of-icebergs-in-antarctica.html

Again thank you for spreading the Kozz! We are excited to bring the best for free or minimal cost if you need a lot of files.

James

arumbai's comment, July 2, 2012 3:31 PM
Kozzi changed their price policy. So what is written in this article about their prices is not valid anymore. Now you have to buy credits and 1 image of reasonable resolution is now costing 2 credits = 2 USD. Kozzi has become just one of many photo brokers with almost equal pricing. Kozzi lost absolutely their advantage here.
Robin Good's comment, July 3, 2012 1:54 AM
Thank you Arumbai for this very useful update. It was expected that Kozzi would soon steer away from their initial approach, which was just an innovative approach to get more people to pay attention and try out their offer.

Thanks again for your helpful contribution!
