I’ve updated the draft version of the video I originally titled “safe classroom blogging.” The final title is “perspectives on classroom blogging.” Thanks very much to everyone who provided feedback and suggestions. I’ll be showing this video in about two hours in my presentation on “Safe Classroom Blogging” for the MacWorld 2007 K-12 education day in San Francisco.
In addition to the title change, I cut nine of the original images used in the video out entirely, extended the display time on most images from 1 second to 1.5 seconds, zoomed in to show better detail on several, used the Ken Burns effect on a few more and increased the display time, and inserted a REAL audio clip of H. Songhai sharing his perspectives on classroom blogging instead of the Garageband vocal-transformer version I used originally. I’ve added a graphical link to the video download page on my blog sidebar to make it easier for people to find it.

Credits / Attribution links for this video as well as links to contributor and referenced blogs are available also. I am trying to model best-practices in terms of intellectual property / fair use / attribution of media sources. One new resource related to this I used in creating this video is YotoPhoto. YotoPhoto indexes Flickr Creative Commons images as well as other public and openly licensed images for use in presentations and multimedia projects like this.
I’ll post a copy of this to Google Video soon as well. Got to get over to the convention center now!
