Open Culture Documentary Tube – Watch Documentaries Online for FREE How to Create a Time-Lapse Movie with Google Street View This tutorial describes how you can quickly create a time-lapse movie using Street View imagery from Google Maps and publish it to YouTube in HD. I made a short time-lapse movie today using Street View images from Google Maps and playing them all in a quick sequence with some background music. The end result, as you may have noticed in the video, is quite similar to the view that you would get if you were actually driving on that road while sitting inside the Street View car. This may have some practical uses. For instance, you can create a time-lapse of the route between the airport and your business, add voice narration to mention the important landmarks on that route, and people are then less likely to call you for directions. To get started, you would obviously need hundreds of Street View images. Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. That’s it.

Five-Minute Film Festival: 9 Videos on News Literacy In our increasingly information-saturated society, it can be challenging for young people (or any of us!) to sort fact from fiction in journalism. We get news from all directions, at all times, on multiple channels; citizen reporting competes with major corporate conglomerates for our attention and our trust. As we get ready to celebrate News Engagement Day on October 6th, what can you do to help your students become more critical consumers of news media? Video Playlist: Truth and The News Watch the player below to see the whole playlist, or view it on YouTube. How to Choose Your News - Damon Brown (04:49) This excellent video primer from TED-Ed explains how to find and consume your news thoughtfully and with the least chance of being manipulated. More Resources on News Literacy I'm sure you're convinced at this point that our need for news literacy is ever-increasing as the volume of content we consume from all different sources grows.

Geeking the Keynote Tweet cc licensed flickr photo shared by Jacob Whittaker UPDATE (Sep 21, 2013): These instructions are a bit dated– see the updated instructions. Last year I used for the first time a nifty AppleScript that allows you to embed a code in the notes of your Keynote presentation that will trigger a twitter message with the text you want. Sure it is canned, but if you are wanting to trigger a response tied to your talk, or just want to have updates done in case your audience is too lazy to tweet for you, it was perfect. This script no longer works, see below. Well, until the “oauthpocalypse“, when Twitter changed the way third party apps could use the service. It’s like what many other web apps do- flickr has done it maybe the longest, but you of course have to be logged into your account to grant access by an outside entity, so you are not sharing your passwords with BillyBob’s Twitter Wangdoodle app. Alas, this killed the Keynote Tweet tool, which used the older basic authentication. 1. 3. 4. 5. 6.

digital scholarship Bloggers, or anyone who maintains an online profile, have an ambiguous relationship with visitor stats and data. On the one hand we like to dismiss them as meaningless, but then secretly feel chuffed when we can outscore someone. I've tried to promote them as one way of measuring impact, but with the caveat that context is important. For instance, if you're a blogger in a relatively obscure area, such as Barry Town football club, then your range is limited and unlikely to compare in absolute numbers with, say, a blog reviewing Apple products. I recently passed 300,000 views on this blog, over about 700 posts - that's not as exciting as it might sound as I've been going since about 2006. My friend Liam says he gets about 200K a year on his mobile tech blog.

5 Exciting Innovations That Will Change Computing in 2012 The mouse, having played its role in the transformation of the personal computer, is now almost outdated. If you think about it, when the mouse was first invented in the 1960s, computers were unrecognizable from the sleek, sophisticated devices we use today. So has the mouse had its day? Technical innovations are incoming in the next year or so that promise to bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds like never before, whether that's controlling your computer with gestures, opening programs with your eyes or extending the menu options for touchscreens with wearable devices. Take a look through our gallery of interesting innovations in the computing world.
