 14:11:19 almedrano ->  I have an old sony that doesn’t work, will have to try this with something new, flip cameras are popular will that work here?

 14:12:59 Peggy George ->  using video production to teach media literacy!! awesome point!
 14:13:11 Paula Naugle ->  I have watched this video before. Love his explanations.
 14:13:14 kcaise ->  extremely important, key ppoint
 14:13:42 susanvg ->  Yes – have to help students understand camera angles and transitions – not arbitrary
 14:13:45 Mathew Needleman ->  The media literacy element of moviemaking is what I think justifies its use in classroom vs. some other technology components
 14:13:57 almedrano ->  what about ultranorm?
 14:13:59 JoseRodriguez ->  Looking for some video.. production this year as part of #thirdgradediscoveries
 14:14:00 Mathew Needleman ->  more bang for your buck
 14:14:02 Peggy George ->  I agree!! justifies spending the time!
 14:14:13 Mathew Needleman ->  what’s ultranorm?  not familiar

 14:15:01 csgodfrey ->  Hi Y’all
 14:15:07 Peggy George ->  in Alec’s presentation in the next segment we’ll get to see these tips modeled!! πŸ™‚
 14:15:08 susanvg ->  Audience also needs media literacy πŸ™‚
 14:15:56 Paula Naugle ->  Hi Maary Beth.
 14:16:03 Peggy George ->  hi everyone just joining us! so glad you’re here!
 14:16:36 Peggy George ->  selecting shots with clear purpose!!
 14:16:40 JoseRodriguez ->  hadn’t noticed.. but rule of thirds is a great tip
 14:16:42 Lorna ->  I love all this good advice for shots
 14:17:12 kcaise ->  don’t most digital cameras have that grid they can put on the screen when taking pictures
 14:17:13 Peggy George ->  I never thought of that before I saw Mathew’s video!
 14:17:23 Peggy George ->  always thought things should be centered!
 14:17:29 Mathew Needleman ->  @kcaise, yes many do have grid
 14:17:41 Mathew Needleman ->  @Peggy, in portraits you might center subject
 14:17:47 JoseRodriguez ->  so cool..
 14:18:07 Peggy George ->  thanks Mathew for that distinction–photos vs videos
 14:18:19 JL ->  I have mic envy again
 14:18:21 Andy McKiel ->  Matthew – I first watched your video on the bus in Vancouver last year – I got some really funny looks when I laughed out loud when this segment began πŸ™‚
 14:18:32 Peggy George ->  isn’t it fun when we love our technology equipment??!!
 14:18:34 susanvg ->  having ability to add mic was one criterion when I bought a video camera
 14:18:41 JoseRodriguez ->  I love my mac
 14:18:43 Mathew Needleman ->  Totally unrelated but I was very sick during the making of this movie.  I think I went to bed after this scene
 14:18:50 Mathew Needleman ->  Glad you enjoyed it, Andy
 14:18:59 susanvg ->  adds to the mad video maker look
 14:19:05 Peggy George ->  my flipvideo camera doesn’t have a microphone input and I need to get a new one!
 14:19:05 JL ->  getting harder and harder to find webcams with ext. mic option
 14:19:16 JoseRodriguez ->  I still have one
 14:19:26 Peggy George ->  wow Mathew! had no idea!
 14:19:27 kcaise ->  hi matt
 14:19:28 JoseRodriguez ->  at least 6 or seven years old
 14:19:30 Paula Naugle ->  Hi Matt.
 14:19:33 matt montagne ->  hey y’all
 14:19:37 JL ->  asked the guy why that is and he said consumers were confused by extra plugs  ?!?!?
 14:19:46 shanda ->  everyone should get a Mac
 14:19:49 Peggy George ->  oh no JL!!
 14:19:52 JoseRodriguez ->  I have been using it for ustream.. where I record but do NOT broadcast
 14:19:59 JoseRodriguez ->  it gives me an embed code
 14:20:04 Peggy George ->  look at all of that equipment!!
 14:20:22 mrsdurff ->  booya?
 14:20:27 susanvg ->  technology envy
 14:20:29 JoseRodriguez ->  yep.. booya

 14:26:20 mrsdurff ->  I would agree with mathew here

 14:29:30 marlene.weaver ->  Hi, Dorie
 14:29:32 Peggy George ->  how do you find those movie clips??
 14:29:35 jackiegerstein ->  That’s like presenters saying that they listen to their students ideas and suggestions and don’t include the students in their presentations
 14:29:48 Paula Naugle ->  Mathew, how do you get the grid on your movie?
 14:29:50 Peggy George ->  how did you create your video? planning process

 14:33:48 matt montagne ->  that door scene project from AFI is a great one
 14:34:01 Cathyjo in SC ->  @Durff good to hear your voice! It’s been a while, no?
 14:34:16 Peggy George ->  in the real world πŸ™‚ vimeo is a great tip for classrooms!

 14:34:32 Lorna ->  there is a windows version of directors board
 14:34:38 jackiegerstein ->  LOL @durff
 14:34:51 mrsdurff ->  lol
 14:34:56 matt montagne ->  but matthew is right, youtube is great if you want authenticity
 14:35:14 susanvg ->   some school boards here blog streaming during school hours
 14:35:28 matt montagne ->  try to give assignments where students have to tell a story without including video of people…then you can post to youtube with fewer privacy issues
 14:35:56 Peggy George ->  good point Matt!
 14:36:06 susanvg ->  @matt montagne – good idea
 14:36:23 JoseRodriguez ->  there you go..
 14:36:24 Peggy George ->  fair use doctrine is so important to understand!
 14:36:27 JoseRodriguez ->  well said
 14:36:37 Peggy George ->  πŸ™‚
 14:36:39 Andy McKiel ->  πŸ™‚
 14:36:48 matt montagne ->  LOL Matthew!!!!
 14:36:58 Paula Naugle ->  lol
 14:37:00 jackiegerstein ->  I believe that this generation is going to change our ideas of copyright and fair use
 14:37:02 Peggy George ->  it only takes one person to notice πŸ™‚
 14:37:03 Andy McKiel ->  Clustrmaps
 14:37:09 Lorna ->  they will now after such a good presentation
 14:37:12 roxanne ->  thanks for sharing that with us
 14:37:41 roxanne ->  At conferences we see clips everywhere and no one even mentions fair use and education
 14:37:43 Paula Naugle ->  I like that we have fair use for educational purposes.
 14:37:49 susanvg ->  unfortunately copyright different in Canada
 14:38:01 sr ->  I am being paged. Sorry I have to leave
 14:38:10 roxanne ->  as educators we are often setting poor examples
 14:38:10 Paula Naugle ->  Bye sr.
 14:38:11 courosa ->  yea, Canada’s fair dealing is actually worse than fair use
 14:38:24 Peggy George ->  fair use is so much more important than charts with specific criteria–we have more freedom than we take advantage of as educators
 14:39:07 Peggy George ->  vidsnacks with Tim Holt on Ning is a good resource
 14:39:08 Paula Naugle ->  Love the guy that made the Disney video to showcase fair use copyright issues.
 14:39:27 Peggy George ->  yes Paula-that Disney video is excellent!
 14:39:32 Paula Naugle ->  Sorry he used Disney clips to make the video.
 14:39:48 matt montagne ->  youtube is the place to go, I agree
