If we use art, poetry, drama, etc, as forms that promote creative thinking and production, we can get a lot out of students.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, July 7, 2013 12:07 PM

Oh, this is SO lovely!~

Nancy White's curator insight, July 10, 2013 10:39 AM

Beautifully illustrates that if we want students to be creative, we need to give them choice - and freedom to use their imaginations!

Great list. I'll be testing some of these out in the next couple of weeks.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, July 26, 2013 5:17 PM

There are so many apps out there! Any suggestions as to which ones are better and easier to use, especially with primary/elementary aged children?

Watch: First Trailer For Alfonso Cuaron's Sci-Fi Thriller 'Gravity' Starring Sandra Bullock & George Clooney

Watch: First Trailer For Alfonso Cuaron's Sci-Fi Thriller 'Gravity' Starring Sandra Bullock & George Clooney | Sci-Fi Movies | Scoop.it
Perhaps a recap of the journey we've been on with "Gravity" is in order. Hell, just getting a cast in order is a story itself with Robert Downey Jr. and Angelina Jolie attached at various points, and after the latter left, a frantic search geared up to find a replacement for take the lead with Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, Sienna Miller, Abbie Cornish, Rebecca Hall, Olivia Wilde and Blake Lively all being rumored/considered/wishlisted before Sandra Bullock signed on, followed shortly by George Clooney.

 

And then there's been the hype: chatter about an apparently heavily CGI, 20-minute opening sequence; Guillermo Del Toro calling it 5-years ahead of its time; a 3D shoot that left Clooney hoping he'd never bother with the format again; a product that Bullock said will be "profoundly silent and big and loud and I don't know how to explain because I have never seen anything like it" and finally, noise from a test screening last year that made certain folks freak out in anticipation...."

The producers of a new movie called “Europa Report” have released a new trailer about their film, which features a near-future mission to Jupiter’s moon, Europa, in search of extraterrestrial life. From the trailer, the film looks to be of extremely high quality, and it stars Sharlto Copley (District 9), with music score from composer Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, Eureka).

And while this is a sci-fi flick, the makers of “Europa Report” say they have steeped it in real science. JPL scientists acted as advisers on the film, and it’s been called “One of the most thrilling and realistic depictions of deep-space exploration since ‘Moon’ and ’2001: A Space Odyssey’” by Space.com

I'm not a huge horror buff, but I think this list is pretty accurate. I think I would have to say that Freddie Krueger scared be the most as a kid.
