Presented by Dr. Arnie Abrams. I’ve never seen Dr. Abrams present before, but he has some good ideas.
Photojournalism – tell a story, news or otherwise.
Digital ethics – nice. More people need to talk about how the camera can (and often does) lie.
Commercial assignment – more specifically, have the students create a commercial that advertises a product. The video he showed had students using aliases in the credits, wich is a nice idea.
Storyboarding instructions without words.
I may have to leave early to get to my own session on time. I hope not.
The last example had copyrighted music in it. Teachable moment about copyright infringement?
“Everyone’s a reporter.”
He talks about “Single Frame Animation.” I know it as “Stop Motion Animation.” To each their own.
Send digital photos back to the host after a field trip.
Time shifting – a look on the present from the viewpoint of the future.
Digital scavenger hunts – those are fun.
Visual seating charts – one of my schools uses photos on a chart so the Kindergarten teachers and students know who gets on which bus.
He’s reccomending software at this point. Why must PhotoStory be mentioned so often? It’s a nice program, but I hear about it more often than PowerPoint nowadays.
Giving tips – keep it under 3 minutes, privacy, copyright, ethics, ethics, ethics.
Gotta go – my sessions on the other side of the continent.
