Cool Links #13: Monday The Thirteenth…Aaaggghhhh!

It is not Fridays we should fear, but Mondays – especially Mondays after a long weekend. But since tomorrow is a school day, here’s a cup of wake up and get out of bed links!

1) Jeff at Wicked Decent Learning has a whole host of links at his site to copyright friendly audio and video resources.

2) Black Star Rising has a new e-book/slideshow on Photojournalism ethics.  Worth watching, downloading and sharing with your students.

3) The KRG Blog put up an interesting list of “Guidelines for Journalists” – My favorite is “Do nothing I can’t defend.”  Kind of like first do no harm.

4) The Pulitzer Center and YouTube, now there’s a phrase I never thought I’d hear, but there you go – they have a partnership called Project Report for non-pro journalists.  Some really good videos here.  Check out the final round.

5) Here’s a sad Google Map mashup called Papercuts.  As the name implies it is a visual listing of all the newspaper job cuts in the U.S. during 2008.  Most seem to be east and west coast.  The  center of the country has fewer cuts.  Maybe because smaller towns away from the coastal cities have more responsive small town newspapers that still cover what the public wants to know?

6) It’s not news that MIT is offering a lot of classes online for free.  They have a whole catalog of Comparitive Media Studies.  My favorite course that I’ve seen so far is the New Media Literacies.

7) And this list is brought to you by the letter Z and the number 8.  Just kidding, but it is brought to you by the Idea Shower and their Firefox plugin Read It Later.  I used it to save these ideas for this blog and keep them in one place.  So cool.

Only three weeks until Christmas Break.  Let’s hope my yearbook kids get some pages turned in soon!  Ah, yearbook stress.  Gotta love it.

  2. Great links! Thanks for the resources. Here I’ve been thinking that MY yearbook kids are the only ones behind the 8 ball. I’m about to go bald from pulling my hair out.

  3. Thanks for the links! And it just so happens that we’re about to start studying Journalism Ethics. Listen, I have a challenge up at my place today, which you might get a kick out of. Enjoy!

  4. Hey, and did you see that the EduBlog nominations are up and the voting has begun? I’ll vote for you if you’ll vote for me…Thanks!

  5. My kids have 89 pages at the printer. I think we will get another 11 out before Christmas break which will put us right on track. I have cut the number of pages this year so it’s much easier to make the deadline.

    • In our defense we did miss nearly two weeks of school due to a hurricane. :-( But even so, we’ve got to pick up the pace. But I two of my 2008 editors were at my classroom this week and we were discussing the fact that this staff may not be fast, but their pages are really good. So, I’m working on the old slow and great vs. fast and mediocre. Can’t decide which is worse. Why can’t I get quick and great? The joys of yearbook! :-)
