Is There No Sanctuary?

So a freedom fighter of fair use got smacked in the face a couple of days ago. The Youtube copytright scanners… took him out. Why? Because he dared to look copyright holders in the face with this, this, this, and this? (pingback bonanza!)  Groom had doggedly dodged and weaved against claims of copyright violations.

Apopcalyptic Start to the Summer

This past June I was able to teach a York College course for K12 pre-service candidates, Teaching With Technology during the summer session for the first time. We used a blog I created for the four week session which adopted a thematic title for the class, based on Jim Groom’s Educational Apopcalypse TEDxNYED talk. The site was named Why […]

Giant Ants at Work Animated GIFs

This time I didn’t do any damage to the mobile phone microscope as I did for the animated burning candle. I shot these on my walk from the car to campus, which I did basically with my head down looking for ants. So of course you start to notice things you don’t normally including these […]

My Pants, Flowers, and Bit of Burn Out

This is a repost for my summer course with teacher education students. I’ve been playing along asking them (and myself) to be makers, recognizing there will never be exactly what they want in the classroom.

Ode to Timmmmyboy!

Thanks to Tim Owen’s Streaming for Pennies post that has been powering DTLT Today’s live stream, I now have an internet broadcast channel of my own without ads, for pennies.

Vertigo, Dizzing Educational Awesomeness at UMW

Yes this post is an excuse to show another Alfred Hitchcock animated poster which I made while at UMW’s Faculty Academy (with Rear Window & North By Northwest this makes three, nine to go). But I’m not going to write about the film Vertigo and the designer of this poster Saul Bass. Ok one thing, […]

CUNY Week 12 – How I Remember I Was There
