Shama lama ding dong! That’s right folks, teaching and learning technologies have never been so much fun. Brian Lamb, D’Arcy Norman, Gardner Campbell, and I have joined forces to offer a little “twist” on the standard presentation for the NMC’s Online Conference on the Convergence of Web Culture and Video. Brian Lamb’s recent post has already nicely framed the occasion as follows:
The Web 2.0 Online Learning Film Festival! My colleagues and I have designated ourselves as Festival Jurors. From what we hope will be an avalanche of nominations we intend to select a 45 minute program, adding bits of commentary, analysis, trash talk and awards. (All legitimate nominations will be included on a supplementary program.) We intend to use Mojiti (which allows for annotation of online videos) to facilitate the communication of juror and audience input. We will argue about discuss our respective choices during our NMC online presentation on Wednesday, March 21, and when the conference wraps up weâ€™ll open up the discussion to the wider web world.
Now, here’s where you come in: I need you to add links to your favorite online videos (multiple nominations are encouraged) with a brief context for how they can be understood as “educational” in the comments of this post. I am leaving the idea of educational intentionally vague, for any definition depends entirely on the context -so have fun and make me laugh, cry, feel, think, and scream out for more! Who knows -you could become the prom king or queen at the NMC Web Video Homecoming!
