Shakespeare is better with Popcorn
For all who are watching or studying Shakespeare’s plays and get forever confused or distracted or even discouraged – help is on the way!
Matt Thompson of Mozilla points out some highlights of the project and also describes a possible future of this kind of hyper-video:
For me, Kateâ€™s demo speaks to the larger potential of social video in the classroom: turning a formerly passive activity (video watching) into an interactive and social experience. This can allow educators to speak the multimedia language thatâ€™s native to most learners, while at the same time making it a more engaging, â€œlean forwardâ€ experience than sitting in a darkened room watching some one-way film.
You can also make your own social video now with Popcorn Maker.
