A Peace Poster/Elvis Costello Remix

(Note: This post got lost in the ‘draft bin’ but here it is ..) After writing ¬†about my students art project — the Peace Posters — and remembering the classic Elvis Costello song — What’s So Funny (About Peace, Love and Understanding) — I realized that I could merge and remix the two with Mozilla […]

How to Remix with X-Ray Goggles, and Why You Should Bother

The theme of the Make Cycle with the Making Learning Connected MOOC is now Hacking Your Writing. I decided I would hack the newsletter announcing the them of Hacking Your Writing.

Remixing Judy: How a Poem Inspires a Poem

The theme this week with a MOOC (sort of) around the five elements of creativity is “the remix” and as I thought about it, I kept coming back to a poem that Judi Moreillon left a comment at my blog post over at MiddleWeb the other day. Judy’s poem captured the end of the year, […]

Teach the Web: A Remixable Credo

Saturday Morning Line Lifting (poetic remix)

I did some lifting of lines on Twitter yesterday morning, as part of my “line lifting” project to remix new poems from the shards of others’ poems. I’ve written about why I do this (to honor writers and to celebrate the remix of ideas) in a previous post, in case you are curious. [View the […]

The Office Time Machine Project: Cultural References Remix

Wow. To prove culture is not only everywhere, but that certain references to films, songs, and works of art are critical for our collective understanding of comedy and to the importance of relating to content, I found every cultural, real-life reference from every episode of The Office. – Joe Sabia This Office Time Machine remix […]
