When People Feared Computers — The Atlantic

Posted: March 30, 2015, 6:15 pm

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

Allow yourself to be a little ignorant for a while. Plan to spend some time learning; give the computer a chance to prove itself before you decide you can't use it; take things a step at a time; make sure you read the documentation carefully; and finally, don't forget that you're in charge, not the computer."
  • Same advice as learning to use twitter, a new LMS, or educational software or any new thing! - Maureen Greenbaum

40 Viewing Comprehension Strategies

Posted: March 30, 2015, 10:37 am

Comments:

  • Interesting article and graphic relating to how we can increase viewing comprehension in our classrooms. - Amy Burns

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

See Readicide for a powerful argument of how we as teachers, while well-intentioned, can “schoolify” reading and viewing and learning to the point that it’s unrecognizable to anyone anywhere on the planet outside of the classroom, and make students think they hate what they’re doing in the process.

You can’t watch a video like you read a book; the modalities couldn’t be much different.

Homage or Theft? A Closer Look at the ‘Blurred Lines’ Verdict - Law Blog - WSJ

Posted: March 29, 2015, 3:28 pm

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

A federal jury in Los Angeles on Tuesday ordered singers Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams to pay about $7.4 million to the family of Marvin Gaye, after finding the duo’s 2013 hit song “Blurred Lines” copied parts of Mr. Gaye’s “Got to Give it Up.”

  • Attribution and intellectual property are a real concern for everyone. Remixing ideas is not a new practice, but in the 21st century it is easier than ever. How do we help prepare our students for careers in the 21st century? - dabennett7

only to compare “Blurred Lines” to the sheet music composition of “Got to Give it Up.” So the jury only heard a stripped down version of Mr. Gaye’s song, with his lyrics over a bass line and keyboards.

substantial copying
  • From the arts to science, remixing and building upon the ideas of those who came before you is not new. In fact, it is a necessary practice that feeds the progress of our world.  Now musicians are haunted by this ghost of copyright.




    How can we develop and model practices for our students that celebrate the history of attribution and the growth of ideas?




    Can we elevate the student dreaded practices of citation and attribution to an act of reverence and respect? - dabennett7

Remix Culture : Center for Social Innovation (CSI)

Posted: March 29, 2015, 3:28 pm

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

there’s a war raging over what some now are calling a new art form in the emerging Web 2.0 culture—remix

remix is collage, a recombination of existing, reference images or music and video clips from popular digital culture, elements of which are mashed up into something new.
  • Does this sound familiar?

    Common core and even the SBAC assessment are rooted in remix. - dabennett7

as long as the remix is significantly altered from the original—should remix be permitted by law
  • How will copryright laws evolve for the 21st century?

    What skills must our students gradate with to prepare them for a world of Remix vs. Copyrights? - dabennett7

Should remix be outlawed as a violation of an artist’s or photographer’s copyrigh

“Remix is literacy in the 21st century,” Lessig said. The chief of Stanford University’s Center for Internet and Society
  • If digital literacy includes remixing, then the skills of citation and attribution are more important than ever. - dabennett7

failing to legally protect remixes as original forms of art and expression “will make pirates of our children...We cannot kill this form of expression;

Johnson, author of The Invention of Air, a new book about the history of information flows in American and British society, said remix has “deep roots in the Age of Enlightenment and among America’s Founding Fathers.”
  • Remix is not new...  but it is easier and more accessible than ever.  A smartphone alone is a remix machine capable of remixing text, audio, video, images and more.  Then with a click you can publish your remix to the world from anywhere! - dabennett7

Where do we think innovation and creativity come from

Fairey rounded out the talk, citing remix as one of the early 21st century’s most popular forms of free political expression.

Remix is all about making references; references are how you establish a point of view in popular culture, and they are crucial to my work as an artist.”
  • This is what we as educators are all about...

    We challenge students to make connections, identify themes, clarify or argue a point of view.  We push them to remix everyday.

    Are we challenging them to respect the ideas they build their learning upon? - dabennett7

The future of Schools

Posted: March 29, 2015, 5:46 am

Comments:

  • Ask the average adult to describe a school and you are likely to get similar responses. There will be a focus on the places and spaces in which their education occurred, the teachers who taught, the rows of desks, the daily schedule of classes and breaks. But what is the future of schools? - Nigel Coutts
