Structuralism Theory (media) - YouTube

Hollyfield Media Studies A2 Podcast
Ken Morrison's insight:

Barthes (1974) gives us a framework of 
1) Action Codes (explostions, fights, etc)

2) Enigmatic Codes (detective, drama, what happens next?)

3) Symbolic Codes/Binary opposites (sexes, good/evil, psychoanalitical

Everything is a Remix: Part 4

This is part 4 of the series.

Ken's Key Take-away:

when we copy, we justify it.  When others copy, we vilify it.

Everything is a Remix episode 4, produced by Kirby Ferguson, a New York-based filmmaker.

 

"Our system of law doesn't acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries.

 

But ideas aren't so tidy. They're layered, they’re interwoven, they're tangled."

 

A must watch video experience.

Brilliant, Indeed!! I hope Many, many people see this gem!
Paula Correia's curator insight, April 22, 2013 8:30 AM

Tudo é um remix...

As nossas ideias são consideradas, do ponto de vista do Direito, como propriedade, como únicas e com limites bem definidos.

Será isso um MEME? .

( O meme , termo criado por Richard Dawkins é o análogo do gene na genética.  É uma unidade de evolução cultural que pode de alguma forma autopropagar-se. Podem ser ideias, línguas, sons, desenhos, capacidades, valores estéticos e morais, ou qualquer outra coisa que possa ser aprendida e transmitida.)

Seth's Blog: Millions of words and only six emotions

Seth's Blog: Millions of words and only six emotions | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Seth Godin says that we should focus our communications on these six words.

 

Ken Morrison's insight:

Do you want your ideas to spread?  Godin suggests this short list of emotions that we should focus on.  Anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness and surprise.  I would suggest adding Trust (desire to connect), Lust, Desire (for material goods), and Pride.

Seth's Blog: Toward resilience in communication (the end of cc) | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Seth Goding is a marketing and communications thought leader who I truly respect.  He released a few new books in the past 60 days. He has helped shape many of my thoughts regarding online communications and marketing.  

 

Ken Morrison's insight:

For the sake of balance, I want to share this quality post about the negatives of asynchronous communications.  I like the analogy that the internet is like " throwing a thousand bottles into the ocean and waiting to see who gets your message."

Digital Storytelling - DAOW of storytelling

Digital Storytelling - DAOW of storytelling | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

The best way to help students understand the effects of media is for them to become creators of media.  By seeing how they can shape people's perception of a story, they begin to realize how all consumers of media are vlunerable to the bias of the producers.  This is the heart of media literacy.

 

It provides nice framework and primer for digital storytelling.  The focus is on how to use it in an educational environment.  I believe this could be used as a textbook.

Ken Morrison's comment, August 1, 2012 5:11 AM
This is a very nice blog. I remember when teachers were excited about the idea of giving everyone a $xx.xx clicker so that we could record everyones multiple choice 'opinion'. If used wisely, Twitter is a much better use of the same concept. I like some of the other opinions as well. Specifically, I like the idea that it connects students in new ways to network and learn answers together outside of class.
