We recently produced a high-quality video to help students learn the positives and negatives of having a digital footprint.  A local university, police department, and marketing company all gave great insight.  Feel free to use this video in your schools!

Convergence theory - where "Everything that Rises Must Converge" (thanks Flannery O'Connor, Lost and Teilhard de Chardin" - enter the Pixar Universe - the author lays out a lovely argument to convince us that the Pixar world is indeed connected:

Hi Karyn A Nadler! You sent a great question to everyone in the group. Unfortunately, things like this - when e-mailed to the group tend to not be super easy to respond to. For that reason do consider re-posting the question you e-mailed up above us in the discussion forum as a crowdsource question. That way you have a dedicated URL and I can share your ? on a Crowdsource Tuesday!

Stay Groovy!

Helen, thank you soooo much for sharing this info!  You can always post this up in the discussion forum but since it is a fleeting resource it might actually be a better wall post - that is me e-thinking out loud.  At any rate, thank you for the share!

Hi Melanie - this is a great question. Unfortunately, big questions on the comment wall are not easy for folks to respond to and get buried over time.

Would you consider moving this question above us to the discussion forum? When you post your ? above your "affinity group" peeps can give you feedback. Because forum ?s have URLs it will be in there for the next person with a similar ? AND I can broadcast the question to the whole Ning on crowdsource Tuesday when I'm back broadcasting

Thanks for getting in the mix - your question is an awesome one - short answer "many benefits" :)

What benefit does students creating their own media have in the english classroom?

Comment by Ryan Goble on January 20, 2012 at 12:50pm

Yikes, let me know if my writing there is unclear but you would go to the A&VC group and post up above the wall (this is the wall) in the discussion forum. Stuff on the wall gets lost/ buried over time whereas CS things in the discussion forum have urls that I can share when I'm doing full ning broadcasts.  Does that make sense?

Thanks Ryan.  I clicked the crowdsource link, but wasn't sure how/where to post.
