While many who use digital technology in education are attempting new and innovative approaches to teaching over the internet, the use of videotaped lectures is still commonplace in distance education and in open education initiatives. This video argues that the lecture a classroom technique that can be argued to be vestigial at best, even in the classroom ought to be updated rather than reproduced in the online classroom, by paying attention to the limitations and strengths of online video as a medium. My primary goal is to encourage people to think about the way that various media affect how we communicate, that there should be different pedagogical approaches online than in the classroom. It seems rather obvious, but theres also a lot of tone-deaf stuff out there. And my pet peeve is the use of recorded classroom lectures for open ed and distance learning programs. The only thing more boring than a bad lecture is a decent lecture on Youtube.

To narrow the academic achievement gap in San Francisco public schools between people of color and the well heeled and well taken cared for - Marcus Bookstore and volunteer organization Public Allies joined forces on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to go out into San Francisco's "at risk" neighborhoods to reach out and assist parents in supporting their K through 12 children to improve their academic performances while bringing them up to grade level. The mission was a success in finding strong interest from parents that had hoped someone would come along to provide the help needed to ensure their kids were not forgotten in the very competitive education market place. "Kids are eager to learn and it is criminal not to give them every chance to excel" is the way one parent put it. "The kids just need someone in the school system to care as much about the kids without connections and lots of money as they care about the kids who do have it all." Very well put.

This is the VOA Special English Education Report, from voaspecialenglish.com An American nonprofit organization helps young people around the world to understand important issues, and each other. The Global Nomads Group organizes educational videoconferences. Students and speakers discuss subjects like AIDS, world religions, nuclear weapons, immigration, climate change and politics. For example, students from at least eight schools in Ghana talked with American students about the election and inauguration of President Obama. The Ghanaians took part from a distance learning center in Accra. Live coverage from Washington "brought the energy from the streets to the classrooms," said a story in Modern Ghana News. The Global Nomads Group, or GNG, was started in nineteen ninety-eight by four university students. They wanted other young people to become more informed about the world. Programs have been held in more than forty countries. The group says at least ten thousand students take part each year. Shirley Herrin teaches high school in Magnolia, Texas. She says her school is not using the programs this year because of budget cuts. But she tells us in an e-mail "A live conference feed was one hundred percent better than a textbook. Magnolia is a small town and for many of my students this was an opportunity to travel around the world." One thing her students discovered is that they liked the same music and activities as many other young people around the world. The Global ...

We are continuing with the theological education in Stara Zagora in a distance learning form. After the long summer break, during which we all had to put in practice what we had learned in the classroom, we are back to school. The first day of school we all gathered it was a cold and rainy day, but we prayed for Gods blessings and believed that God has put us together for a purpose. The first course that we started with was History of Christian Music a course that sounds easy in a way, but it is also a very important one. We started with the Hebrew music and their way for worshiping God with all their heart and soul. We made a so called tour through the early church period and the Medieval times. I believe that it was very interesting to all students. For me the best thing was that during the break between the classes we all teacher and students decided to go to the chapel and worship God with songs of praise, instead of going out to get a coffee and have conversations. The funny thing was that we spent more than a half an hour in worship and almost forgot our lectures. It was great to be in the presence of the Lord! This was a great a beginning of the new school year. May God bless our students and the teachers so we could have a successful year we want to learn more, but also to practice everything we learn in our churches and regions!

Link- merrillk.com This video will illustrate the differences between male and female faces. In part 1 of this video, I will compare male and female facial features, bone structure and musculature. In the in the second part of this video, I will do a demonstration. During this demonstration, I will review what we learned in the first part and teach you how to draw the nuances of the male and female face for artistic (art) purposes. During my demonstration, I use a pencil an eraser and a blending stick (stub) also known as a tortillion. Lets look at the differences of the male and female skull first and then we will work our way up to the skin. Male and female children have similar skull shapes. But once children hit puberty, the differences start to appear. Testosterone provokes the growth of certain facial features in males, while female faces remain relatively childlike. The presence of higher levels of testosterone give men a thicker bone structure with more prominent bones. Male faces have a wider, more prominent jaw, chin and cheekbones (also known as the zygomatic arch). The physical size of the male skull is usually larger than the female skull. A very distinct characteristic of a male skull, is a protruding supraorbital ridge also known as a brow line. Female faces are more rounded and tend to have a narrow jaw line. They have a softness that the male face lacks. It carries more fat than the male face, especially in the cheeks. Female faces tend to have thicker ...

Text of President Barack Obama's speech Saturday in Accra, Ghana, as prepared for delivery and provided by the White House: www.google.com Good morning. It is an honor for me to be in Accra, and to speak to the representatives of the people of Ghana. I am deeply grateful for the welcome that I've received, as are Michelle, Malia and Sasha Obama. Ghana's history is rich, the ties between our two countries are strong, and I am proud that this is my first visit to sub-Saharan Africa as President of the United States. I am speaking to you at the end of a long trip. I began in Russia, for a Summit between two great powers. I traveled to Italy, for a meeting of the world's leading economies. And I have come here, to Ghana, for a simple reason: the 21st century will be shaped by what happens not just in Rome or Moscow or Washington, but by what happens in Accra as well. This is the simple truth of a time when the boundaries between people are overwhelmed by our connections. Your prosperity can expand America's. Your health and security can contribute to the world's. And the strength of your democracy can help advance human rights for people everywhere. So I do not see the countries and peoples of Africa as a world apart; I see Africa as a fundamental part of our interconnected world — as partners with America on behalf of the future that we want for all our children. That partnership must be grounded in mutual responsibility, and that is what I want to speak with you about today ...

www.esotericteaching.org Last time we discussed the Vedic history of material creation. Fast forward to the end of the Treta-yuga, a little over 5000 years ago. The Vedic Empire controlled the entire planet. The earth planet was then known as Bharata-varsa, and its capital was the great city Hastinapura, on the Yamuna River near the site of present-day Delhi. The Vedas clearly describe that the areas now known as China and the Orient, Russia, the Middle East, Africa, North and South America were part of that far-flung empire. At that time the Vedas were the standard system of knowledge for the entire planet, and Sanskrit was the universal language for all learned people. The Vedic Empire was not exactly a dictatorship, but a federation of local rulers under one Emperor, who held court at Hastinapur. Vedic culture is very open and tolerant of local religion, social customs and language. It was simply recognized by all intelligent people that a world government based on esoteric spiritual principles is the best arrangement for the peace and prosperity of the worlds citizens. Government administrators had to be qualified as great warriors to defend the people against the criminally inclined, but they also had to be qualified in realization of the Esoteric Teaching and approved by the Vedic Masters. The Vedic Empire was prosperous and opulent, with worldwide trade and decentralized light industry based on the natural production of minerals, food and other commodities. Poverty ...

Hi. Im Doug Patt and this is So you want to be an architect. A seven part series about the profession of architect. This is part 3. What does an architect learn? Architecture is an amazingly complex field and an incredible education in itself. Theres a lot that goes into any building and the architect should know their way around every inch. The architect also needs to understand people and for that matter society. So lets take a look at some interesting opinions about the spectrum of subjects an architect learns about in a lifetime of practice. Plutarch, a greek historian and writer once said, Philosophy is the art of living. Architecture surrounds us all and in a way dictates or reflects our way of life. Weather its a TeePee or a mansion, buildings represent what we believe is truth. Mark Twain said, clothes make the man. Naked people have no influence in society. This is funny but also true. Just as we need clothing, we need buildings that clothe us. The sociology of man is reflected in our buildings in what we believe, how we work and how we live. Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965) once said, Man is a clever animal who behaves like an imbecile. Now we all know weve got good sides and bad, but the reality is the psychology of man is manifest in architecture from prisons to massive stadiums. We make what we need to accomodate who we are. Stephen Nachmanovitch a musician, author, computer artist, and educator once said, Creative work is play. It is free speculation using ...

www.tracesofevil.blogspot.com This is a short film I show in my not to explain how Hitler made good his boast that it needn't matter if people crossed over to join his movement as their children already belonged to him, but using a contemporary source to analyse its origin, purpose, value and limitations. Unlike what other commentators here have stated, the cartoon does not show all Germans as evil, but how they have to be moulded to follow the Nazi My main issue that I would ask you to look at whilst watching it is the complete omission of anything to do with the Jews. The fear the British and (more so given they were not directly attacked by Germany) American Governments did not want its people to think they were fighting for Jews. But here no mention is made of Reichskristallnacht or the clear systematic persecution of Jews that had been covered in world newspapers since Hitler's assumption of power in 1933. Synagogues have been replaced with churches, toras with Bibles, stars of David with crucifixes. One from the extensive line of Disney animated films that were banned in the U.S., "Education for Death", based off the novel "Education for Death: The Making of a Nazi" (which is unsurprisingly out-of-print, even though Hitler's "Mein Kampf" is still a best seller) is a dramatic look at the dealing with Nazi Germany and the forming of a 'Good Nazi' (and that's "good" meaning a Ayran filled with Hate and prejudice). The film loosely travels along the lines of the famous anti-war epic, "All Quiet on the Western Front (1930" by which instead of the First World War, it's somewhere near the second. The story starts off with a German mother and father, registering their newborn baby boy to the fascist government of Germany. They name him Hans (note the list of verboten names, top of both lists being Franklin and Winston). There is then a little segment that's really meant to lighten the tone of the film which some slapstick comedy, involving a Nazi 'retelling' of "Sleeping Beauty", in which Democracy represents the wicked witch, Germany represents Sleeping Beauty and...of all people...Adolf Hitler, as Prince Charming. In the twisted and hilarious short, sleeping beauty is an overweight Germanic opera singer and Hitler is shown as a skimpy, snorting wannabe, who struggles trying to get the fat woman up onto his horse. We then cut back to the main story. Hans is now 7 years old and is apart of the Hitler Youth. At one point, he becomes sick and his mother is unable to tender and cuddle him because the state strictly forbids making future soldiers weak and emotional. After Hans gets better, he returns to to which the subject is 'weaker species'. The teacher, a 'Brown-shirt' Nazi, draws a little cartoon on the chalkboard about a little cottontail Rabbit who runs away from a hungry Fox. It doesn't take a genius to know that the Rabbit represents "Jews" and the Fox is an "Aryan Race". Hans, not understanding the point, feels sorry for the rabbit. The teacher throws a fit and punishes Hans for disobdience. Hans' anger becomes rabid and feels pure hatred towards the rabbit. Immediately following is a series of shots, involving Hans with a Nazi book burning rally, the destruction of a Catholic church (smart move, knowing that if it was a Synagog, this film would never had seen the light of day) finally ending with the Hitler Youth, "Marching and Heiling, Marching and Heiling!". The youth then transform into teenagers, marching and heiling. Eventually, Hans becomes a full grown up SS Stormtrooper, in which he is ready for battle. The eerie final shot in the film shows the troops marching off in the distance, but then they all fade into tombstones, marking from miles and miles. "And now his Education is complete. His Education for Death" This is a shocking and disturbing film that I recommend showing in History in a form of the history of propangada or wartime efforts for victory. To an interresting extent, the entire cartoon (I don't like calling it that, because it's much more than a cartoon) is entirely spoken in German, with the exception of the Narrator. It's kind of sad in the end, but true none the less. Of course, the basic point of the film is not very accurate: The Third Reich ruled Germany for only 12 years (1933-1945), so little Hans would only be 12, or 11, by the time the rule ended. But again, the film was made DURING THE WAR! It also shows violence against churches and Christians whilst ignoring completely what had been going on with Jews for the past decade.
