I was just reviewing Steve Dembo's posting about Mandatory YouTube Videos and it got me thinking about which ones I think people should watch.
Steve lists a few videos that I knew and liked including:
- Wesch's A Vision of Students Today and Web 2.0 . . . The Machine is Us/ing Us.
- The latest edition of Did You Know 3.0 by Karl Fisch and Scott McLeod.
- The updated Did You Know 2010
- The Introducing Le Book depicting a support person for using books.
- Digital Dossier which describes the digital trail that we leave from birth
- Food Fight which is an incredible example of stop action video creation. It is literally a war between foods. I would suggest previewing this before sharing with students due to the graphic depiction of food annihilation.
I would like to add a few of my personal favorites:
- Bob Sprankle's I Had a Dream where he asks "If we didn't have today's schools, would we build today's schools?"
- Don McMillan's Life After Death by PowerPoint where he shows you how NOT to use PowerPoint.
