Salvador Dali’s Bizarre Surrealist Cookbook Republished After 40 Years - DesignTAXI.com

Salvador Dali’s Bizarre Surrealist Cookbook Republished After 40 Years - DesignTAXI.com | JLDN journalism.london | Scoop.it
Published only in 1973, Les Diners de Gala is a cookbook penned and illustrated by the artist, whose childhood dream was to be a chef. The cookbook comprises 136 recipes over 12 chapters, with one full chapter being dedicated to aphrodisiacs. Recipes in the book include ‘Thousand Year Old Eggs’, ‘Frog Pasties’, and ‘Toffee With Pine Cones’. As expected of Dali, the cookbook is illustrated with bizarre collages, paintings, and compositions. From a tower of crayfish, to a plate of eggs that resemble his melting clocks painting, The Persistence of Memory. Only 400 copies of the book are known to have survived. Now,Taschen has republished the book, which is now available for pre-order at $59.99.

Surrealist artist Salvador Dali is perhaps best known for his painting of melting clocks, or for his zany moustache. His cookbook is fascinating!

Welcome to the new feminism – where the aim is to gross you out

Welcome to the new feminism – where the aim is to gross you out | JLDN journalism.london | Scoop.it
Vaginas are so hot right now. If that sentence shocks you, then you’ve been out of the cultural loop. Thanks to a new wave of television and autobiographies by some very funny women, female privates have moved to the front and centre of popular entertainment.

Male bits, once the only game in town, are now chiefly of interest only as a sidebar to hilarious female riffs on misfiring, awkward and unsatisfactory sex, thanks to recent work by the likes of Lena Dunham, Britain’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge (writer, actor and star of BBC series Fleabag), and now Amy Schumer, whose smash hit “femoir”, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, recently hit stores.

This is all part of a new movement – what I like to call “gross-out feminism”. It is gleeful, honest to a fault, and practised exclusively by women who long ago kissed goodbye to the capacity to be embarrassed. Its goal – apart from to make people laugh – is to provide a kind of shock therapy to those still harbouring the notion that women don’t have bodily functions, trapped gas, or insubordinate periods. Or that women must either be thin or desperately wishing they were so.

Prompts are useful. I'm more comfortable using writing prompts if I know my students can generate a prompt of their own.  One way to promote this skills is to always offer students the option to come up with their own prompt.

"Think about the jobs in today’s economy — the ones we’re supposed to prepare students for after graduation. Are employees evaluated using bubble-in tests to prove they know the ins and outs of their job? Do they learn and use new skills one at a time in a vacuum? The questions sound a bit silly until you realize too often that’s what students take away from their education. Why is the culture to drill facts into students’ heads just to pass a test?"

Remix: 10 Great Apps for Journalism - MediaShift

Remix: 10 Great Apps for Journalism - MediaShift | JLDN journalism.london | Scoop.it

AEJMC in Minneapolis this year featured apps on numerous panels. I was grateful for the chance to be on a terrific one to present “10 Tech Tools in 10 Minutes.” Our goal: to provide the audience a brief introduction to tools they might never have before considered and show how they could be used to aid students’ journalistic performance or understanding.

 

It worked; I received more than a dozen emails after the panel from people who sought advice on how to use suggested apps.

 

For those who could not join us at AEJMC, here is a crash course on apps featured by our panel and others. Some are new. Some have been around, but you might not have discovered them.

 

All can help you teach your students to be more nimble and professional in this ever-changing media landscape....

#Podcasts to help Students think Creatively about Traditional Content @indianajen #PodcastDay

#Podcasts to help Students think Creatively about Traditional Content @indianajen #PodcastDay | JLDN journalism.london | Scoop.it
One of the great privileges in my position at Ransom Everglades is that I still get to work directly with students in the classroom. I teach two sections of United States History. This work not only “keeps me honest” when it comes to technology, but it encourages to hone my skills as an educator and learner. Teaching a “traditional” subject using “non-traditional” tools can be a challenge. I want my students to think outside the box, explore things from new angles, and challenge accepted interpretations of historical events. This can be difficult not only for them, but to me. After all, history has been taught a specific way (focusing on names and dates and the expertise of Ph.D.’s) for generations.

One way I have found to disrupt this tradition is to bring podcasts into my classroom. Podcasting is an amazing medium that has disrupted terrestrial radio in unimaginable ways. As a result, there is a wealth of information out there to bring into the educational environment. By using engaging and well-researched material to provide students alternative perspectives and media. Here are a few of my favorite Podcasts (I’ve highlighted a couple of episodes). I hope that you will share your favorites below as well.

Do Your Students Take Good Notes? – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Do Your Students Take Good Notes? – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | JLDN journalism.london | Scoop.it
Whether — and how — students take notes in class is an evergreen topic in discussions of teaching and learning. Unfortunately, I often find myself frustrated and annoyed when I’m explaining something in class and look out at a room full of students who are, admittedly, paying attention to what I’m saying but writing down not a single thing in their notes. Frustration and annoyance do not make for good pedagogy, though, and my off-the-cuff comments in response to this particular student behavior are probably among the reasons students often write in course evaluations that I’m too sarcastic. So in my teaching I’m working on front-loading an explanation of the relationship between what happens during class time — no, we’re not just having an unstructured conversation about things — and the designated learning outcomes of the course, as well as the role played by memory and such learning strategies as taking notes.
