How to teach?

In my scholarly quest and pursuit of knowledge about what is reading and what is writing I found THIS USEFUL ARTICLE about “how to teach anything to anyone.”  It’s not that top performers in a professional sense can’t teach others. Mostly they’ve just never been taught how to teach.

Tape is gone, but it lives on!

A useful writing that explains the absence of audio tape stock.  CLICK HERE

“Recording on tape enforces a musical process, McTear explains. Band members must play together, recording all at once, instead of editing and manipulating sounds so perfectly that they’re perfectly boring.”  I love this approach to musicianship and recording arts.

A Bloom Refresher

I use Bloom’s Taxonomy for the benefit of students in my classes.

I don’t know why the Taxonomy that Bloom et al developed seems to be kept in secret from students? Tell me why so few students are acquainted with Bloom et al?

I share the Taxonomy with my students and encourage them to apply the concept of action verbs in their individual learning, applying the concept of action verbs to scriptwriting, photography, interviewing, video production, and other creative inquiry and activity.

HERE is a useful list of verbs and a hierarchy of learning consistent with Bloom’s theory of learning.

 

TV Program Production in Bangkok

This is Project 1 for my class in TV Program Production at Ramkhamhaeng University in Bangkok.  I think it’s unique and useful that students are asked to apply their creative and technical skills in digital media production for the benefit of a NGO in Bangkok.  Nice synergy with the integration of theory and practice, application of ethics and values for social development, and a meaningful opportunity for professional development.
