Google search stories

Found something kind of neat using Google and YouTube. You can make video stories using Google Search Stories 
You can make a story like "Parisian Love"  video the one shown during the Super Bowl.  You just think up seven searches, add music and viola' you have a video. Try it. Once you have a story you like, upload it to YouTube and embed it on your blog.

Where good ideas come from

Think about how you are using your PLN. Are you using your network for just social interactions or are you networking and sharing your knowledge, passions with others

What is the cloud?

I surfed the Net and found a short video about cloud computing. I know one of you has this as their topic, but I thought this was interesting enough to share with all of you.

Fair use and copyright

One of the topics we are going to look at is the issue of fair use and copyright. It is important to know what the laws are so you know when and whether you can use another person's material. Here are a few videos to get you started. One is by Videomaker Magazine. The other one is posted on School Tube. I will also post some links at the bottom of this post to give you more info about the concept of copyright and plagiarism.

 Here are some links to more information on copyright.


We are going to use Masher to make a public service video. Today I would like you to log onto Masher, create an account and try it out. Then, go to the Google doc that was shared with you and decide on a topic. If you don't see one you like, you can add your own. You can do this with a partner, if you'd like. It has to be a partner that you haven't collaborated with so far this semester. We are going to mix it up and Mash it up :) You will be using the Flip cameras to take some of your own video.  You will be working on this again on Friday. Have fun!
