You can tell that I want you to stop and think about stock here. I feel like we all got really good at flow, really fast. But flow is ephemeral. Stock sticks around. Stock is capital. Stock is protein.
And the real magic trick is to put them both together. To keep the ball bouncing with your flow—to maintain that open channel of communication—while you work on some kick-ass stock in the background. Sacrifice neither. It’s the hybrid strategy.

TED-Ed's mission is to capture and amplify the voices of great educators around the world. We do this by pairing extraordinary educators with talented animators to produce a new library of curiosity-igniting videos. A new site, which will launch in early April 2012, will feature these new TED-Ed Originals as well as some powerful new learning tools.
Beginning today on a new, dedicated YouTube channel, TED-Ed will release 12 short, animated videos aimed at teachers and high school students. The TED-Ed videos will be shorter (3-10 minutes) than the normal 18-minute TED Talks and rely on animation more than a talking head.
I think this is still the best introduction to the process of creating and publishing video--KYou Tube Video Editor, that is. You can learn to shoot, upload, edit, mashup, edit some more and publish. It is the classic programmers 'fast prototype'. Make stuff, make it fast, make mistakes, make it right. You cannot beat the feeling of learning satisfaction with this tool. That makes it a positive addiction in my book--feel good learning.
"The YouTube Video editor lets you make quick edits to your uploaded YouTube videos. You can combine multiple clips, incorporate Creative Commons footage, enhance your clips with effects, and more."
Did you know that search engines have a hard time indexing video content? They aren't transcribing the audio that might be in the video, so they rely on your description of the video to help identify it online.
Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano has an interesting and highly visual post on collecting vs. curating with Twitter, and on the curation potential Twitter has in store for those involved in education.
She quotes Mike Fisher writing: "Collecting is what kids do when asked to find resources for a particular topic. Usually, it represents the first 3 or 4 hits on a Google search, without meaning, discernment, or connections.
Curating is different. It’s the Critical Thinker’s collection, and involves several nuances (see Figure 1) that separate it as an independent and classroom-worthy task."
This website enables you to upload a video and convert it into a series of images that you can print to make notes on. This is very useful for taking notes about video lectures or information rich documentary type programs.
If eavesdropping on the music-listening and video-watching behaviors of your Facebook friends on its real-time ticker satisfies the stalker within, you may experience equal delight (as much as possible in a work environment, that is) from Yammer's...
YouTube doesn’t have to be a place where viewers passively watch video. Free annotation tools allow content creators to provide interactive opportunities to engage content. The resulting video can be used as part of a flipped classroom model or to time-shift any kind of instruction.
This is a useful site for those interested in learning about using web 2.0 tools both in and out of the classroom. You need to register first before you can access the video tutorials but that is very simple – you just need to create ...
