Prezi Design Strategies

Can we apply concepts used in video production to Prezi design? Let's find out! In this Prezi I pull terms from Bruce Block's book _The Visual Story: Seeing the Structure of Film, TV, and New Media_. Let me know what you think.
Tim Brook's insight:

I could use this with students using  prezi  - might need to be taken in sections though...

It would be nice to see Prezi done really well.

10 Ideas for Classroom Video Projects | open thinking

10 Ideas for Classroom Video Projects | open thinking | Media Education | Scoop.it

"This is a blog post from Dr. Alec Couros @courosa outlining (with examples) 10 ideas for different classroom video projects. I like the ideas but as someone with almost no video creation skills or experience I can't comment on the level of video skills required...however I agree with the principle of students moving from being video consumers to video producers.


Thanks to @easegill (Nigel Robertson) from the WCEL unit at the University of Waikato for this link."

 

I usually shy away from lists that list the the 10. 30 or 50 best ...... but this post goes beyond simple practiclaities and selects examples that encourage deeper thinking such as in "Genre Shifting Movie Trailers:"  or reflections on change in "Conversation with Future Me/You:"  Screencasting, remixing  and  social activism where Martha Payne  and her blog  Never Seconds get  a mention.  This is a video lesson planning resource  that is relevant and timely.

Very nice list of interesting tools -does anyone have a good suggestion for an open source alternative to for instance Premiere Elements? I know about Lightworks, but for the workshops that I give it is a little too complex ... currently I actually use WeVideo, which I think is great. Participants also love it

Humankind's Greatest Innovation is the Power of Story

Humankind's Greatest Innovation is the Power of Story | Media Education | Scoop.it
There is just one innovation that has withstood the test of time, fought off wars and conflict, stood tall in the face of adversity and adapted itself to the different means by which it is conveyed. This is the power of story itself.
