Good stuff from Wes Fryer - I share both the copyright chapter of “Playing with Media” (2011) and the EFF’s website “Guide to YouTube Removals” as valuable resources which shed “balanced light” on copyright issues as they relate to the classroom and student-created media. We also watch Chapter 4 of the wonderful (and LEGAL) Disney movie remix, “A Fair(y) Use Tale” and use it to discuss fair use.
From Harvard Business Review - There’s a lot of conflicting advice out there on giving corrective feedback. If you really need to criticize someone’s work, how should you do it? I dug into our archives for our best, research- and experience-based advice on what to do, and what to avoid.
From NPR - Ever wonder why children can so easily figure out how to work the TV remote? Or why they "totally get" apps on your smartphone faster than you? It turns out that young children may be more open-minded than adults when it comes to solving problems.
