Ten Fun Ways to Use YouTube Videos in an Online Literature Class April 2, 2012 By: Yvonne Ho in Teaching with Technology I have always enjoyed watching YouTube videos and when I noticed that some of the videos dealt with serious literary topics and had re-enactments of Shakespeare plays, I began to wonder if I could incorporate them into my literature classes. Instead of students just reading a text version of Othello, why not have them also watch a live performance of Othello to get them more motivated to learn literature? I started exploring YouTube and found many different kinds of videos that I could use to supplement my online literature classes.

What is the World Wide Web? - Twila Camp Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, a hypermedia platform that harnesses the powers of the Internet to connect anything together – people, files, ideas, communities. He wrote a book called Weaving the Web, in which he talks about the freedom that this ability to connect things together gives us. He is also the director of the World Wide Web Consortium, which does the important work of guiding the development of the web through web standards. Although Tim Berners-Lee is the father of the World Wide Web, he does not profit from it the way other inventors profit from their inventions. In fact, the Web is an open, de-centralized entity in which anyone can participate. Though web technology and the Internet can be regulated, and often is by governments, the World Wide Web is not owned by anyone.

Six Photographers Each Have A Photo Session With The Same Man - The Results Will Definitely Surprise You! - Most Exciting Planet When six photographers are tasked with taking portraits of the same man, the results are astonishing. Here’s the twist: each photographer is told a different (fake) personal history of the man. As portrait photographers, it’s their goal to portray this man, as they see him, in a single photograph. Though he comes to each photo session dressed exactly the same, carries himself the same way, and speaks with each photographer in the same manner, the photographers treat him differently and photograph him completely differently depending on the background story. This “experiment” is a perfect illustration of how we all deal with preconceived notions about the people we encounter, and how that affects the way we view them and even the way we treat them. The experiment is titled “Decoy” and was developed as an exercise for photographers that are seeking to improve their craft.
Reality TV and E-Learning: The Next Frontier? Three Possible Edu-Reality Shows You don't want to watch, but once you do, you want more and more. You ask yourself why, and all you can come up with is that there is something cathartic about tragedy (not exactly a new finding -- but ranks up there with the eternal verities) -- and, the Aristotelian ideas / precepts still hold: the tragic hero is compelling because of the essentially flawed nature of his/her beingness, and hubris resides at the core. "There but for the grace of God ..." we intone because we all have a "hubris trigger" in our heart of hearts -- we all would love to be invincible and to somehow transcend / escape angst, pain, fear of death, and death itself.
