Description from Internet Scout Project

 

"If you have never thought about (or heard of) creating a "zeen," now might be the perfect time. A zeen is a portable, bite-sized piece of content designed to help individuals tell a story via words, images, and videos. Visitors can get a primer of how they work via the Learn More tab, and it's easy to get started. Each zeen can be shared via a variety of social media, including Facebook and Twitter. This version is compatible with all operating systems."

Sympathetic Characters Part 6: Unfairness

Sympathetic Characters Part 6: Unfairness | Middle School Language Arts Ideas | Scoop.it

Unfairness can come from a person, an institution or the universe. There’s no real logic behind why we expect good things to happen to good people and bad people to be punished (experience certainly doesn’t suggest either will happen very often), but we do. And this means a character who is treated unfairly is one who is probably going to win the sympathy of the reader.

Presentation Zen: Lucas, Scorsese: On the need for visual literacy

Presentation Zen: Lucas, Scorsese: On the need for visual literacy | Middle School Language Arts Ideas | Scoop.it

By Garr Reynolds

 

"A professional or student in the 21st century needs to have a good degree of multimedia literacy. The term multimedia literacy and visual literacy encompass many things and borrow from many disciplines. However, for at least a generation or more when people speak of the need for multimedia literacy (they may call it different things) they very often focus on the high-tech tools of the day. This is especially true in education. But the tools of the day are for the most part ephemeral. But an understanding of the principles and techniques and "rules" found in the broad field of visual communication are the thing of real and lasting value. Hardware and software are important, of course, but what's of much greater value is the software between one's ears....

"Below, in separate interviews, two legendary American filmmakers — George Lucas and Martin Scorsese — are very direct in their assertions that visual literacy is crucial for people in today's world and that it should be both more highly valued by educators and taught in schools."
