Lights, Camera, Education!

     We interrupt this week on sound with an important message. About four months and forty degrees ago (here in the Chicago area at least) I was out in San Diego for NECC (the National Educational Computing Conference). The first presentation I attended on the very first day was by the American Film Institute and in it they previewed a DVD they had produced about using movie making to address core curriculum. In addition to the fact that the DVD is very professionally done, narrated by Sean Astin, features student work, and is based on years of AFI integrating film making into K-12 education, the video will also be available from Discovery Education through unitedstreaming! You should start with the  DEN podcast introducingAfiempower_1
the program and then log in to unitedstreaming to view the clips and download the 88 page Educator’s Handbook. The handbook also contains instructions on joining AFI’s Screen Education Community free for a year. That’s a $100/year service underwritten by Best Buy Children’s Foundation.

     Now back to our regularly scheduled blogging…

    I have learned newer and more effective things from a blog post. Yet another thing to I have noticed is that in many instances, FSBO sellers may reject an individual. Remember, they can prefer not to ever use your expert services. But if anyone maintain a gradual, professional romance, offering guide and keeping contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually be capable of win interviews. From there, a listing follows. Many thanks
