A great 'experiment' to see if yoiu are any good at detecting false information.  This will take you 30 minutes to rethink documentaries for the rest of you life.  I think it is a good investment.

This is an effective documentary about how easy it is to deceive people.  Many of the things were not new to me, but I loved the twist at the end.  Well Done!  I like how they used recent documentaries as the case studies.

Noam Chomsky – The Purpose of Education

Noam Chomsky – The Purpose of Education | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway

1)“Purpose of an education is to help learners learn on their own.”

2) the other is to indocrinate

3) like a hammer, technology is just a tool.  A hammer doesn't care if it is used to build a house or to crush a skull.  It depends upon the user.

What Does it Mean to Live in An Interconnected Society?

Wow.  I really want to see this.  I was also happy to see/hear Howard Rheingold in this film preview.  I took a course from him last year.

Ken

 

Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby Awards, talks about today's interconnected society at The Economist's Ideas Economy: Information 2012 event in San Francisco. I wanted to bring this to your attention because what she is speaking about concerns all of us

 

What does it mean to live in a connected world? How is it changing us, our culture and the planet?

 

Her film "Connected" is a must see! It's thought provoking and captures the essence of the experience, the anxiety, overwhelm, mystery, commonality, rapture, looks at the potential and wonder of what innovation, knowledge, discovery lies ahead. 

 

Tiffany Shlain:

 

"Go as far as you can see and when you get there. you'll be able to see even farther"

I watched this documentary one time eleven years ago.  I remember aspects of it a few times a year.  This is a wonderful 'documentary'  that extends upon Marchal McLuhan's thoughts by using media in a beautiful way..  As with many of McLuhan's thoughts, it is even more true today than when I first viewed the documentary a decade ago.

As you know, I love Clay Shirky's ability to make average people undersand and care about deep topics.  In this TED talk he discusses how participative social media will evenutally change governments.

Thank you for the rescoop. I really like this video. I am lucky to be the first scoop for your site. I have used scoop.it since March of 2011 and I am very happy with it. My best advice to new members is to create a strategic tagging system that is comfortable for you and then tag everything. It makes it easy for you and your followers to find articles later and Scoop.it will reward you with a high score, because they value an organized web. Best of luck to you!

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."

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.)
