Facilitator/Teacher Resources

As a supplement to the wealth of resources and links provided in my blog entries, for your convenience I’ve compiled this list of additional resources.

I had a great time researching zombie-related resources, resources for audio blogging/podcasting and vblogging/videocasting*, resources highlighting the issue of copyright, and resources championing the use of the horror genre in the classroom.

If you have anything to add to this list, please comment below!

Awesome Comics,” a Webquest by Brian Boyd: Targeted at EFL/ESL students, but suitable for all. Students research comic book characters, design their own, then make a sample comic book.

“Teaching Resources.” National Association of Comics Art Educators 03 Oct 2007 <http://www.teachingcomics.org/resources.php>: “This page contains a list of short exercises, complete lesson plans, as well as a few sample comic books scripts.

Depending on the school and what best suits its curriculum, this class could be offered as an art studio class, an illustration course, part of a writing program or within a film and video department.

Resources for use in Audio Blogging/Podcasting and Vlogging/Videocasting in the Classroom

Background Information

What is a Vlog? What is a Vodcast?: With both the vlog and the vodcast, “v” is for video. Which may give you a sense of what this is all about; but really doesn’t tell the story. The story involves going back to the origins of blogging, the web, and even the Internet itself. And while we won’t go all the way back in huge amounts of detail (since doing so would make this article way too long and you probably wouldn’t read it), we’ll tell enough so that after reading this you’ll know what they are and where these words came from. And see why they’re just both Internet TV.

Definition of AudioBlog and MP3 Blog from PCMAG.com:

A blog that includes audio clips in MP3, AAC or other audio format with brief text descriptions of their content. If the audioblog is made available in a syndication format such as RSS, it is a podcast.

MP3 Blogs

Audioblogs typically contain conversation, but music audioblogs are more often called “MP3 blogs” and contain promotion tracks from major music labels as well as copyrighted and non-copyrighted works from private collections. MP3 blogs may also include dialogue and gossip about the music and musicians. See blog, podcast and vlog.

(my emphasis)

Definition of Podcast from PCMAG.com:

(iPOD broadCAST) An audio broadcast that has been converted to an MP3 file or other audio file format for playback in a digital music player or computer. The “pod” in podcast was coined from “iPod,” the predominant portable, digital music player, and although podcasts are mostly verbal, they may contain music.

Using the RSS 2.0 syndication format, podcasts are made available to subscribers just like news feeds. The client program that captures the audio feeds and synchronizes them with the music player is a “podcatcher,” such as Curry’s own iPodder, available at www.indiepodder.org

Definition of Vidcast from PCMAG.com:

(VIDeo podCAST) A video clip designed to be viewed in a portable device. Also called a “vcast” and “videocast,” a vidcast is the video counterpart of a podcast and uses the same RSS syndication method for delivering material to users…

Definition of Vlog from PCMAG.com:

(Video bLOG) A Weblog (blog) that includes video clips to be downloaded and viewed immediately or transferred to a portable player. Also called a “vog,” “vid-blog” and “movie blog,” the vlog can be exclusively videos with text used only for captions, or text entries may be included. A venue for people who like to remix audio, video and graphics in some artistic expression, as well as novice and experienced videographers and movie makers, the material is distributed in popular video formats such as Windows Media, QuickTime and Flash…

By viewing all tutorials, you can then use the CTRL-F (find for Windows users) or Apple-F (for Mac users) to browse for specific words throughout the results page. Of course, you can simply scroll and browse through the page, too.

Indianapolis, IN. 3 October, 2007. <http://vnweb.hwwilsonweb.com>: “Abstract: The writer outlines strategies for responding to the popular culture in students’ lives. They include examining how popular culture is used in “free choice” reading classrooms, allowing young people to talk about and use popular culture in schools so that they may challenge authoritative norms, examining the social and political uses of popular culture, teaching students to probe and resist popular cultural texts and to interact with canonized texts, engaging students in conversations about the uses they have for a range of texts in their lives, and asking students to examine how particular forms of popular culture work on audiences as they do, who is responsible for producing and disseminating popular cultural texts, and whose interests are served by the production and consumption of these texts.”

They love to be scared, and if something grosses them out, so much the better.

In this article, the authors suggest ideas on how librarians may take advantage of teenagers’ love of horror stories.”
