1923 animated film about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity

1923 animated film about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity | Funworld | Scoop.it

 

"Einstein's Theory of Relativity” is a silent animated film made in 1923 that tried to explain Einstein’s work to the general public"

 

Made by Max Fleischer, (his famous works include Popeye and Betty Boop amongst others),  this is a predecessor of educational video infographics.  I think it helps put work from the likes of  RSA and Commoncraft in  a context.

 

An interesting point raised in one of the comments is:  

 

"The model of the two revolvers attached to the wooden wagon wheel are so far removed from our modern society"

 

.. but arguably still help convey the concept, as also mentioned  in another comment:

 

"In 1979, I once tried to explain orbital mechanics to my step-father, who was a Mississippi share-cropper born in 1933, turned career US Postman. I was 10 years old and understood it completely, but could not get it through his head that there was no up and down in space because it was all relative. Still, using that example to demonstrate relativity is quite simplistic."

 

More on the film here (wikipedia).

Game your Video: Stop Editing Videos, Start Gaming Them

Game your Video: Stop Editing Videos, Start Gaming Them | Funworld | Scoop.it

This new app for iPhone 4 and 4S offers an interesting and creative approach to video editing by allowing you to control and add effects to a video clip in real time as it is played. Even more interestingly the tools can also be used whilst you record a live video sequence.

 

The special effects include motion, video and audio effects including, slow motion, zoom and reverse,  and voice over and voice transformation. The video filters include B&W, old film and colour moods.

 

I think there's is a lot of creative potential to explore and  play with here, for educators. Hopefully interesting examples will be posted to YouTube, et al soon.

 

Now in App store for £1.49

The viducate network - an initiative to promote video education across all educational sectors in Europe

 

Our vision is: "Viducate is concerned with the development of active citizenship in intercultural contexts at all levels of formal and informal education. Video and multimedia form the core of this non-prescriptive pedagogy of production in the information society."

 

Excellent to see another example of cross cultural collaboration in this important field. Viducate offers reports, newsletters conferences, workshops and hosts a community of practice.
