Teaching Examples

Some real interactivity (for a change)

Very interesting package from MSNBC.com on the U.S. president’s State of the Union Address.

Note that this is actually INTERACTIVE. Wow! And the interactivity is meaningful too!

Unfortunately, it does the annoying page-reload thing I blasted in my earlier post about Amazon today. (You might be able to stand it. I could not.)

While the video player on the left side is Flash, the interactive content on the right is pure Ajax. No Flash there at all.

(Found via an excellent new blog about multimedia storytelling: The X Degree.)

This State of the Union graphic is pure genius. http://www.nytimes.com/ref/washington/20070123_STATEOFUNION.html

See this presidential speeches tagcloud, too. You can compare the words used by presidents back to 1776.

Thanks for the info on X degree. I added it to my reader, and I think I’m really going to like it.

Mindy & Angela — thanks so much for the kind words. I’m having fun starting up this blog. 🙂

I see you found the NYTimes interactive, too. I spent a while trying different words and phrases on that site. Exactly what I want a reader to do with multimedia. Exciting stuff.
