Promoting Visual Literacy ~ Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners

Promoting Visual Literacy ~ Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | Visual Literacy | Scoop.it

Visual literacy is a 21st Century Skill that requires students to interpret, use and create media in ways to encourage critical thinking, decision-making, communication and learning. With easy access to copyright-friendly digital images and a growing number of web 2.0 resources for manipulating them, it's certainly worth offering students the option of conveying a message visually. Let's take a closer look at one way to design effective learning experiences to promote visual literacy.

Instagram for Video: Ptch

Instagram for Video: Ptch | Visual Literacy | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Ptch is a new iOS app which allows you to "style" and easily share with your friends, short 60-seconds photos and video clips.

 

From Fast Company: "Ptch picks up where your static photo feeds on Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Viddy, Facebook, and Google+ leave off.

 

Dreamworks, the animation studio behind Shrek, is backing the iOS app, which launches today and lets users create, edit, and share 60-second mini-movies from their own photos and video clips.

 

Then comes the movie magic. Ptch helps users add title cards, offers soundtrack help with one of more than 80 preloaded songs, and even integrates comments from your social networks.

 

Like other outfits that do Instagram-like treatments for video, Ptch lets mini-movie makers wrap their creations in one of eight styles. You can share new creations on Ptch, as well as on your desired social channels."

 

Source: http://www.fastcompany.com/1843126/ptch-dreamworks-incubator-app-instagram-meets-social-video

 

Finally Ptch lets you remix your friends clips by adding your own concert photos, or changing the song--before sharing it again.

The Sequential Art of the Past: Archaeology, comics and the dynamics of an emerging genre

The Sequential Art of the Past: Archaeology, comics and the dynamics of an emerging genre | Visual Literacy | Scoop.it

"Comics and archaeology should be natural cousins. After all, most ancient languages – Egyptian hieroglyphics being an obvious example – exploit the same image/text synergies as comics.... Comics in archaeology tend to fall into three distinct categories: comics about archaeological subjects, comics about the archaeological process, and comics as archaeological publications."
