Humans “write” because it is our distinctive character
How old is our writing?
“writing,” consider expanding the field of composition.
mode, media, audience, purpose, and situation
I'm thinking of shared purpose here in connected learning - working in teams to create, revise, and share in collaboration that ripples onward to others to remix. Is this notion of, "what will someone else do with this" an incentive to quantity? quality? community?
Let writing go to edge of consciousness.
The edge - this could take time though, with writers struggling to think they can write. But finding the one gem in the work is important to build the confidence needed to become so is important.
write until we find this for ourselves, how can we expect it in our classroom?
It is a creative way to inspire remix, design, and critical thinking.
Each make a silent video on chosen theme and pass it on (flick it on) to the next class.
That class interprets it and adds VoiceOver and credits and flicks it on.
The next class interprets emotion and action and adds music and credits, then flicks it on.
Question/Extension I wonder if there is a reflection/dialogue component to explain/discuss the choice in interpretation and remix to consider how the original projects morphed into something same/different than original intent?
This a project worth trying: students must interpret what they see in the context of the theme, then add their interpretation before passing it on for the next interpreters. Each group thinks through a different part in the making of a video. Imagine the learning conversations and debriefing!
The numbers will be different, depending on what layout and colors you've chosen, and it will have your own AdSense ID in it instead of all those X's. But the basic format will be the same.
Once you've found that code, just delete it.
Everything you see above can go. Then save your changes and republish your blog.
Another way to remove the code it to reset your template to one of our default versions. This is easier than looking through the code yourself, but please note that it will also remove any other customizations your changes you have made.
If you ever decide you want the ads back, just click on the AdSense tab, sign in, and choose the layout and colors you want.
Ira Socol's Toolbelt Theory “Toolbelt Theory” suggests that we must teach our students how to analyze tasks, the task-completion environment, their own skills and capabilities, an appropriate range of available tools… and let them begin to make their own decisions
