History from British Pathé movies a treasure trove!
APRIL 23, 2014
As an avid movie lover and ex-movie critique, I was jumping into the air when I saw the British Pathé journals are opened (while I was on holiday, how dare they!), and are now freely available on their YouTube channel. First thing I did was get hold of the copyright on these movies. The fact that the archive is set free, is like wandering into a movie library.
PowerPoint 2010: Converting Presentations to Movies
I Came, I Saw, I Learned
JANUARY 13, 2011
In previous versions of PowerPoint, converting presentations to movies could be a bit of a laborious task. You won't be clicking your mouse to continue the presentation once it is a movie and you may find that the default transition time goes too fast (or not fast enough) for your liking. The good news: In PowerPoint 2007, not only did you need to go in to Windows Movie Maker to convert your presentations to movies, but in doing so you lost any transitions or animation effects you may have added. by AJ George.

What does the 80's movie WarGames tell us about learning games?
FEBRUARY 19, 2012
recently watched the 1980's movie WarGames with my son. As a dad, I often use movies like that as an opportunity to teach something new to my son. The movie is about a young computer hacker, played by Mathew Broderick , who unwittingly accesses a NORAD supercomputer controlling United States military nuclear weapons during the Cold War. As a child in 1983 I was captivated by the science and drama of the movie. It is the same as the moral of the movie: a global thermonuclear war almost always results in mutually insured destruction. by Jonathan Shoaf.
