On the wire – mediastorm

In this on the wire post I have revisited one of my favourite media sits – Mediastorm to see the latest work they are doing. They are brilliant and their videos are challenging and moving.

Media storm produces “Cinamatic Narratives”, short videos that tell a story. The stories are wide ranging some made by Mediastorm themselves, some for clients and some are the product of student workshops. Check out the links:

3. Ask3 ipad application – http://blogs.techsmith.com/for-educators/ask3-for-ipad/

This is a free ipad application developed by Techsmith. Here is the Blurb:

Ask3 is a free app that allows teachers and students with iPads to easily share knowledge and collaborate via threaded, text and video conversations. By recording voice, drawings, and images, Ask3 can be used to quickly create videos that are shared directly through the app to a small group or class through a private code. To foster collaborative learning, students can pin questions at exact points within a video that are visible to the entire class, and other students can create responses in real-time by adding their own text and video responses. For educators, Ask3 helps teachers learn what information their students understand and areas where they need extra help, allowing them to quickly address challenging and confusing areas right away.
