This is the archived Workshop page from 2011.
These resources are designed for participants in Wesley Fryer’s workshops about “Playing with Media: simple ideas for powerful sharing. (* See permissions guidelines below.) Referenced resources relating to digital text, images, audio, video and copyright are available as “pages” hyperlinked at the top of this site. Please contact Wes if you’re interested in having this workshop shared for your school / organization.
Overview: “A-Ha Moments”
These activities are organized as a media scavenger hunt. Workshop participants are encouraged to complete as many sharing activities as possible and SUBMIT your results as hyperlinks on the Google form linked below. Please tweet links to your media shares using the hashtag #playingwithmedia. Use the tag “playingwithmedia” when sharing on sites supporting tagging like YouTube, Flickr, AudioBoo, etc.
The goals of this activity are:
- To more fully embrace the moral imperative of digital sharing
- To introduce educators to web-based tools supporting idea sharing using text, audio, images, and video
- To share and amplify “A-Ha Moments” with educational technology
- To demonstrate how media created during collaborative projects can be aggregated using tags
What’s an A-ha Moment?
An “a-ha moment” (in the context of this project) is a short story about a valuable resource, helpful strategy, or innovative idea which you can apply in your role as a professional educator, parent, citizen and/or community member. Share your own “a-ha moments” from a recent conference or other professional learning experience and interview others (who give permission for you to share their ideas on the Internet)
