Resource Centres - Action centres full of loud learning with is paces for quietness and others for noisy endeavours.

Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, April 29, 2:09 AM

"Today’s school librarians employ a variety of tools beyond books to educate kids. They use technology to engage students living in a tech-heavy world. They collaborate with teachers to support curriculum. They create “maker” spaces where students can work on arts and crafts projects. They maintain a flexible schedule, so kids can drop in when they wish. And they create a welcoming atmosphere that kids crave."

School libraries and the relationships, human and otherwise, are important in schools.

How Mr. Rogers Got Autotuned

How Mr. Rogers Got Autotuned | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
John D. Boswell aka Melodysheep explains how he made the trippy yet comforting autotune from Americas most beloved neighbor.
Sharrock's insight:

I watched the video "autotuned mash up" after reading the author's reflection on knowledge synthesis. Boswell's work was creative. It occured to me that the "mash up" is a new creative artform. This was a creative and instructional video. I have also seen mash ups of old cartoons that were humorous. These mash ups seemed to have voice overs though, not using the original dialogue that accompanied the clips mashed together. Boswell's mashup used voice and video of the clips. 

 

from the page: "Boswell watched eight episodes of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.As he watches, Boswell identifies clips he likes and writes down their timecode, before organizing them digitally. Through this process, the video’s theme and message start to emerge. Next Boswell establishes the chorus, which must have a direct correlation to the message of the video. Boswell says that for this video, the themes he identified: creativity and imagination, were woven in easily since Rogers deals with them so much on his show. With the chorus and theme in place, he begins to eliminate clips that won’t work within the context of the video, winnowing down his selection the way a sculptor crafts his art from a block of stone."

 

I was interested and watched Boswell's Carl Sagan mashup.

 

I also wonder if anyone else does this "mash up" work. Has anyone watched any other instructional or entertaining mashups? Please provide links to them. Is there valuable criticism of the completed works? Are mash ups getting collected anywhere? If so, where?

 

so far, there are two types or genres of mashups: autotune and comedic (what I am calling the "marvel mash ups"). Are there other mash up genres?

‘Weird Al’ Yankovic’s strange and fruitful life

For “Weird Al” Yankovic, life is certainly good. After 13 albums and 30 years in the business of musical satire, he’s just released the bestselling record of his career.

It’s not exactly what the 14-year-old Alfred Matthew, writing goofy ditties on the accordion in his Lynwood bedroom back in the mid-1970s, might have imagined.
