The teaching part of teaching history with YouTube

The teaching part of teaching history with YouTube.

16 04 2008

As I write this, I’ve been told that an article I wrote called “Teaching History With YouTube (and Other Primary Source Video Sites on the Internet)” will be in the May issue of AHA Perspectives. If you’re reading this before then, I wrote my first draft of this essay on this blog here. That will have to do for now. If you’re reading this because of that published article welcome. What I want to do in this post is lay out some points I couldn’t put in the article due to space.

I’m not sure why, but when I wrote the article I expected it to be in their teaching section rather than technology. However, looking at the final product, classifying it in the technology section makes sense. I spend the vast amount of my allocated space on YouTube mechanics and content and almost no time on how to use the content.

Here are just a few thoughts on how to use it:

1) I find that students have a ten minute attention span for video. Anything longer and they zone out even if the material is really compelling. That’s a big advantage over sites like the Prelinger Archives which have whole short films….

    The red canyons and parched planes surrounding the new Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid Memorial Museum might make you think you’re in the Old West. But the electrical wiring and a searing altitude headache tell you this is not California circa 1900, but high-up the mountains in present day Bolivia. Here in the tiny town of San Vicente (population 800), the world’s most famous outlaws are supposed to have been gunned down 101 years ago, days after robbing the payroll of a Bolivian mine. Offing the bandits would seem to have been sufficient revenge but area residents still think the…

Biblical scholar’s date for rapture: May 21, 2011

Biblical scholar’s date for rapture: May 21, 2011 (Here We Go Again)
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | January 1, 2010 | Justin Berton

Posted on Friday, January 01, 2010 3:01:39 PM by bogusname

Harold Camping lets out a hearty chuckle when he considers the people who believe the world will end in 2012. “That date has not one stitch of biblical authority,” Camping says from the Oakland office where he runs Family Radio, an evangelical station that reaches listeners around the world. “It’s like a fairy tale.”

The real date for the end of times, he says, is in 2011.

The Mayans and the recent Hollywood movie “2012″ have put the apocalypse in the popular mind this year, but Camping has been at this business for a long time. And while Armageddon is pop science or big-screen entertainment to many, Camping has followers from the Bay Area to China.

Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he’d found: The world will end May 21, 2011.

    Narcissists dread the stigma of failure. Our self-admiring president is so fearful of ever being blameworthy that he reflexively shrinks from consequential decision making. Barack Obama’s aversion to making difficult decisions has left America effectively leaderless. Mr. Obama’s decision-making malfunction was no big secret before his election. Back in 2006, Mr. Obama himself had warned us in the opening pages of The Audacity of Hope that “I am new enough to the national political scene that I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views. As such, I am bound to…

    Although I should’ve expected it, I’m afraid I have to admit that the mainstream media’s passionate defense of Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano took me by surprise. I especially expected better from New York Times columnist David Brooks – as much of a centrist as they come – and Washington Post columnist David S. Broder. The former wrote yesterday: There have been outraged calls for Secretary Janet Napolitano of the Department of Homeland Security to resign, as if changing the leader of the bureaucracy would fix the flaws inherent in the bureaucracy. There have been demands for systemic reform —…

    Since he is a wholehearted advocate of the leftist critique of American liberty, Obama’s conscious validation of the moral position of its enemies comes as no surprise. What surprises some is the fact that a famously staunch conservative like Ron Paul blames U.S. for violence. In a recent TV appearance, we find him “blaming terrorism on the U.S. presence around the globe. ‘They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers,’ Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, said on the Larry King show.” Of the motive for the recent terror attack, he said, “We bombed Yemen two weeks ago. … He (the suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab)…

    With the signing of an under-publicized amendment to Executive Order 12425, Barack Obama has fundamentally altered your constitutional rights. His actions are undermining your rights to protect personal privacy from a foreign internationalist police agency named Interpol. A one-paragraph executive order may seem inconsequential to many, but this action has far-reaching implications and threatens the sovereignty of America. Obama’s secretive executive order amended an order issued by President Reagan in 1983. Reagan’s order recognized Interpol as an international organization and gave it privileges and immunities commonly extended to foreign diplomats. Reagan opened the door to allow Interpol to operate in…

The heart and core of their plan is based on the most inhumane and unethical means of cutting costs: the rationing and denying of care. Even worse, the death panels that will ration and deny care, according to the Obama-Pelosi-Reid plan, will be unelected and unaccountable Federal bureaucrats.

Terror probes – what you’re not being told

During that February 15, 2002 broadcast, Mr. Woods stated that the suspicious behavior of the four men “would have been blatantly obvious to the most casual observer.”

Climate conference organizers asked for trouble in Copenhagen
By Tom Harris

imageIt is not surprising that climate campaigners became increasingly aggressive during 2009, eventually resorting to violent conflicts with police on the streets of Copenhagen at year’s end.  While activists had finally succeeded in getting most politicians to sing from the same song sheet – the Earth supposedly stands on the brink of a man-made climate catastrophe, leaders recited one after another at the United Nations climate conference in December – environmental groups have totally failed to convince governments to take actions that are even remotely commensurate with the alleged threat.

India firm pushes trucks’ U.S. debut back to the spring
By LARRY P. VELLEQUETTE
BLADE BUSINESS WRITER
A pair of diesel-powered pickups made in India that were expected to be on sale last summer in the United States have been delayed again, and now won’t make their debut until spring. The Mahindra TR20 and TR40, originally scheduled to go on sale in America last summer, are to be available by the middle of spring, said John Perez, chief executive officer of Mahindra’s distributor Global Vehicles USA. The pickups, a two-door regular cab and a four-door crew cab, will feature Mahindra’s 2.2-liter diesel engine and are expected to boast fuel economy ratings as high as 30 miles per gallon. The trucks, nicknamed “Taj Mahaulers” by one automotive reviewer, are to be offered in four colors: black, white, gray, and red. Pricing for the pickups is expected to start near $22,000. Locally, the vehicles are to be sold by the Taylor Automotive Group. Local auto dealer Steve Taylor purchased a Mahindra franchise in 2007 and had plans to locate the dealership on the north side of Central Avenue between his Kia and Cadillac franchises.

The would-be bomber paid cash and checked no luggage on a transoceanic flight. He was nonetheless allowed to fly, and would have killed 288 people in the air alone, save for a faulty detonator and quick actions by a few passengers. Heck of a job, Brownie.

Tea party movement grows

Posted: 31 Dec 2009 01:36 AM PST

Tea PartyTea Party Attendant

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll this month showed more than four in 10 Americans have a favorable view of the movement, significantly more than the 24 percent with a negative opinion. That was better than the 35 percent positive rating for Democrats and the 28 percent Republicans got. In a Rasmussen poll in December, more people said they would vote for tea party movement candidates than for Republican ones — 23 percent to 18 percent, respectively.

Danita Kilcullen of Fort Lauderdale stands at at the intersection of Federal Highway and Oakland Park Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale with her fellow protesters. The protesters are part of the tea party movement and stage a weekly protest at the intersection.

It could be the birth of a party.

Fueled by anger at politicians and distrust of the government, the rapidly growing tea party movement could upend the political establishment in the 2010 elections — ultimately becoming a permanent, game-changing force in American politics.

Or, it could fizzle.

Even supporters aren’t sure. Joyce Kaufman, a talk-show host on WFTL, AM 850, thinks the answer will come in the November elections. “If nothing happens in 2010, it falls apart,” she said.

But she doesn’t see that happening.

“It’s going to be a huge dynamic. I don’t think it’s going to be easily defused. I think what you’re going to see is an energized voice. What they will do is come out and vote. The tea party movement is going to make a difference,” Kaufman said.

Yahoo! Spies on You by Selling All Its Users Private Email Contents to U.S. Agencies for Small Price

Posted: 31 Dec 2009 03:02 PM PST

spiesspies

Yahoo isn’t happy that a detailed menu of the spying services it provides to “law enforcement” and spy agencies has leaked onto the web.

After earlier reports this week that Yahoo had blocked an FOIA Freedom of Information release of its “law enforcement and intelligence price list”, someone helpfully provided a copy of the Yahoo company’s spying guide to the whistleblower web site Cryptome.org.

The 17-page guide, which Yahoo has tried to suppress via legal letters to the Cryptome.org site run by freedom of information champion John Young, describes Yahoo’s policies on keeping the data of Yahoo Email and Yahoo Groups users, as well as the surveillance and spying capabilities it can give to the U.S. government and its agencies.

The Yahoo document is a price list for these spying services and has already resulted in many people closing down their accounts in protest. However, closing a Yahoo account is not as easy as one might expect: users have reported great difficulty in finding the link to delete their account, and, Yahoo will still keep data for another 90 days.

If you ask Yahoo! to delete your Yahoo! account, in most cases your account will be deactivated and then deleted from our user registration database in approximately 90 days. This delay is necessary to discourage users from engaging in fraudulent activity….

Terrorists aloft over America skies, AWOL Obama aloof in Hawaii
By Judi McLeod

imageAt the risk of being branded a “birther”,  is President Barack Obama’s post-Christmas Day Flight Northwest 253 terrorist attack a useful way to leave an impression that Hawaii is the place of his birth?

AWOL in Hawaii, Obama’s not coming back until Sunday.  For certain his vacation has little to do with Christmas, which he tried to cancel on Christmas Eve with the symbolic passing of ObamaCare.

Nor according to his royal self, does he particularly believe in Christmas. Describing their own account of the day when Christians celebrate the Birth of Jesus, the Obamas do not give presents to their own daughters.

The “other Michelle” (Malkin) gets it right on the button when she describes Obama’s “”four more full days of reinforcing his image as detached, aloof, and too damned tired to tackle the jihadi epidemic with the once-hyped energy and passion of a 48-year-old Super-agent of Hope and Change”.

She’ll be working in the Bureau of Industry and Security. “I’m truly honored to have received this appointment and am eager and excited about this opportunity that is before me. And at the same time, as one of the first transgender presidential appointees to the federal government, I hope that I will soon be one of hundreds, and that this appointment…

O’s day of reckoning

It’s showtime, folks! Today’s the deadline President Obama imposed on Iran’s leaders to give up their nuclear ambitions and be nice.

Not sure if the deadline expires at midnight in Tehran or on Washington time, but the mullahs and President Mahmoud “Mighty Mouse” Ahmadinejad aren’t scrambling to give Obama a New Year’s Eve smooch.

Rather than cave in to our president’s mighty rhetoric, the Tehran tyrants took a break from killing protesters in the streets to attempt to import more than 1,300 tons of make-a-nuke uranium ore from Kazakhstan.

They’ve also increased their nuke-cooker centrifuge count, tested new long-range missiles and lied like Persian rugs about hidden nuke sites. In response, our president threatened to huff and puff and blow their house down.

Early Show’s Adoration Of The Obama

Diabetic or not, you might want to have a dose of insulin handy while watching this morning’s video clip. The Early Show’s review of the past year this morning was one sicky-sweet adoration–in overtly religious terms–of Barack Obama.

Harry Smith set the tone with his opening comments:

“Politics, and patriotism and the presidency: it is the place where the secular and the religious merge. One of the sacraments of our national religion is the inauguration. So it was that as many as two million pilgrims made their way to Washington and the Mall to witness this most sacred event.”

Back to the studio for the personal testimonies of the Early Show crew . . .

Janet Napolitano — former Arizona governor, now overmatched secretary of homeland security — will forever be remembered for having said of the attempt to bring down an airliner over Detroit: “The system worked.” The attacker’s concerned father had warned U.S. authorities about his son’s jihadist tendencies. The would-be bomber paid cash and checked no luggage on a transoceanic flight. He was nonetheless allowed to fly, and would have killed 288 people in the air alone, save for a faulty detonator and quick actions by a few passengers.

    Libertarians often warn about the slippery slope of government intervention: Let the government run the schools, and it may end up teaching your children values that offend you. Let the government have new powers to fight terrorism, and it may use those extraordinary powers in the pursuit of ordinary crimes. Let the federal government give the states money for highways, and it may eventually use its money to impose its own rules on the states. In the Obama era, the slippery slope has gone vertical. Instead of “eventually,” the feared extensions of government power come immediately. When President Obama decided…

    “The heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism,” Ronald Reagan said on many occasions, including a speech at Vanderbilt University when I was an undergraduate. I’m not so sure. But at least the conservatism of Sen. Robert Taft, Sen. Barry Goldwater, and Reagan stood for a limited constitutional government in opposition to the federal aggrandizement of the New Deal and the Great Society. Back in the FDR-JFK-LBJ years, conservatives even stood for congressional government and against the imperial presidency. But what does conservatism stand for today, other than opposition to President Obama? President Bush expanded entitlements, increased federal spending by…

    The federal Transportation Security Administration has questioned a Niantic man who posted a document on his blog that described temporary measures for screening airline passengers. Steven Frischling, a Niantic travel blogger and photographer, said he was on the phone Tuesday with Florida travel writer Chris Elliot when Elliot asked him if any federal agents had paid him a visit. Elliot, like Frischling, posted security directives they each received by e-mail, detailing new security measures for all outside flights headed for the United States. Frischling said Elliot told him that federal agents had just visited him. Frischling said Thursday that he…

    Clueless. It’s the word that best describes the Obama administration’s first year in office. They’ve proven themselves clueless about creating jobs; clueless about handling growing nuclear threats from Iran and North Korea; and now, most devastatingly, clueless about protecting Americans from terrorist attacks on our own soil. And with nearly one year under the belts, they can’t keep blaming the Bush administration for everything that goes awry. It is hard to imagine a more incompetent handling of the thwarted Christmas Day bombing of a U.S. jetliner. First, the commander in chief was too busy enjoying his vacation in Hawaii to…

    U.S. security chiefs briefed President Barack Obama on Thursday about missteps in the lead-up to the attempted Detroit jetliner bombing as lawmakers joined the White House in racing to find out what went wrong. The Senate Intelligence Committee announced Jan. 21 hearings as part of an investigation to begin sooner. “We will be following the intelligence down the rabbit hole to see where the breakdown occurred and how to prevent this failure in the future,” said Sen. Kit Bond, top Republican on the committee. “Somebody screwed up big time.” Few questioned that judgment, even if Obama’s fellow Democrats rendered it…
