Google Earth – For the Ears

Google Earth – For the Ears

I had a great time at the Discovery Educator Network National Institutes.  Mike Bryant did Google Earth for the Leadership Councils and I did it for the National Institute.  The great “face of the globe” is from Mike’s presentation here.  I’m hoping it’s his image, because I’m using it.  I twitted I was doing this

Fix your Movies… with FixMyMovie.com

Learned about this from Scott’s blog, and thought it might be pretty useful.  Particularly if you use your cell phone as a video recording device! Basically, FixMyMovie.com is an all in one movie cleaner upper.  Too dark?  It brightens it.  Too shaky?  It steadies it.  Seemed to do a decent job on their blog in

Dr. Pepper Blow -Up

LIVE from NECC!  This post was initially made live during my presentation in the Lila Cockrell Theater.  We did something in that session never done before (to my knowledge).  We pasted a live feed from a cellphone  (Mr. Steve Dembo’s) into Google Earth. Pretty fun.  We also did it here, in the blog. That’s why

Live Video Feed From NECC 2008

Writing from NECC in San Antonio, Texas,where this blog will be viewed live during my session on cellphones in education (which NECC accepted, causing happy shock and insomnia). We’ll be checking out a live feed from a mystery guest during the session, which is at 3:30 PM Central Time onTuesday, July 1. The live feed

Color Your Own Chromakey

I’m working on my presentation for NECC on things you can do with code and tinkered a little with the work of Cindy Lane, Jen Dorman, and others nicely noted in Matt Monjan’s blog. The trick is doing chromakey (the “weatherperson effect”) where a video clip can play inside another clip through a color that

Mogulus: Your own custom TV studio

I am constantly amazed by how sophisticated some Web2.0 applications can be. Take for example, Mogulus. While there are several sites that allow you to broadcast live video streams, this really takes things a step further. And then another step further. And then yet another step further! At its most basic level, Mogulus allows you

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Although some of you may be thinking that this is the most wonderful time of the year because the school year is ending, for me it is also the time of student media festivals and teacher awards. Slick Rock had theirs, and you may have had yours at the school, district, or state level. On

Adoptic: Let’s do some sharing

One of the biggest challenges new bloggers face is finding an audience. It’s easy to say, “If you write it, they will come” but the reality is it just isn’t that simple. Everybody wants an audience. If you’re going to be putting the time in, you want your work to be seen. One of my

Surfing Timelines with Dipity

Thanks to Mike for sharing this one with me today. I’ve played around with many a Timeline creator, but this one truly seems to stand out. Dipity.com can serve as a traditional timeliner, and it will work well, but it can also become your FriendFeed with benefits. The basic view is exactly what you’d expect.

Leaving the Earth with the Real Buzz

They opened the NASA film vaults and built the biggest winner since Planet Earth. The Discovery Channel premiered “When We Left the Earth” in Beverly Hills for an audience of science celebrities–and teachers. The DEN was in full force at the Paley Center for Media where they were wined and dined and shown what turned
