Rip.Mix.Feed – YouTube – Collaboration – iMovie
- What motivated you to explore the application(s) you used?
I used YouTube and iMovie. Why? YouTube is my “go to” source for when I need to hear and see someone discussing/explaining a topic.
- What have you attempted to achieve in your project?
I’ve become increasingly interested in the topic of collaboration. Collaboration is a diverse subject and I wanted to pull together three important and influential figures talking about and defining their view of collaboration. I intentionally used personalities NOT associated with education. I believe that as educators we sometimes forget or dismiss important views from outside the education field. Lately, impactful changes in my pedagogy have stemmed from non educators in the areas of design, flow, leadership, relationships, assessment etc . . . .
- What are the particular affordances (for knowledge mobilization, learning, etc) of the form of production you’ve selected in relation to previous forms of production we’ve considered in this course?
Throughout this course a key theme that keeps reoccurring in my mind is the concept of writing (text) and editing. When we write we constantly edit and refine our message (unlike orality). The process of collecting YouTube videos and pulling sections from a wide variety videos into a common “film theme” or topic is a useful skill and a way for us to organize our external memory storage systems. I used iMovie to do this because I believe that is it the best inexpensive movie editing tool on the market . . . (I have a heavy bias towards anything Apple . . . . sorry)
- What are the potential drawbacks?
I did not look at any Web 2.0 tools on the market. I know this is probably not the best way to approach this activity, but I went with an application that I knew would work well and is not dependant to a wifi connection etc.
