I am a big fan of Vi.sualize.us. I use it a lot to bookmark and tag pictures I find from the web for the topics I teach. I wish I could do the same thing with video. Now comes along Snipi. With Snipi, you can grab pictures and video from the web to store in a central collection and organise them into streams to share with others. More info in the video below and then head over to AppStorm to read a full review.
I love this, love this, love this! It’s iNudge and it’s addictive. Create music by clicking on squares. Click the matrix icons, or instruments located on the right. Those small squares are the notes and you can arrange/rearrange them. What’s great is that you can embed it as I have but viewers are also capable of interacting with it as well. Try it out. Students will love it! I wonder how my “song” will change when people start collaborating?
I’ve been having a look at Scribblar. My verdict is still out on it. It is tagged as “simple, effective online collaboration.” Basically you create a room that has a real-time whiteboard that multi-viewers can participate in. Draw, edit, write and/or exchange ideas. The video below is a basic introduction to it.
Thoughts? It could be useful for my art classes but I am a big fan of VoiceThread already. The pro with Scribblar is that it is done in real time.
“To celebrate Youth Music’s 10th Birthday, 70 of the world’s greatest musicians and visual artists have created a groundbreaking body of collaborative artwork based on Rankin’s iconic portraits of musicians.
As part of National Youth Music Week 2009, Youth Music will take over Phillips De Pury London for a festival of art and live music featuring performances from Destroy artists.
Original works by Damien Hirst, Douglas Gordon, Debbie Harry, Michael Stipe, U2, Mat Collishaw, Marianne Faithfull and many others will be auctioned to support the UK’s biggest music charity for young people.”
View the Gallery to see the original Rankin photo and how it was ‘destroyed’ by another artist. I think students would enjoy a project like this by using celebrity photos from magazines or even taking and using photos of themselves, which a partner could then reinterpret. I may consider this when I do portrait painting with grade 6 students next semester.
