Excerpt: This week’s blog is a bit different. On 22nd October 2015 I travelled up to Cambridge to interview Ian Rawes about his work for the The London Sound Survey. I’ve been a big fan of Ian’s work and website for many years and on a sunny autumn sunday in early October I went along to the Archway with Words Festival to hear him give a talk on: A Feast of London Sounds, Current and Historical. I was delighted when he agreed to be interviewed. I really do think he should write a book – so any prospective publishers out there please note. For…

Excerpt: AUDIO INTERVIEWS Here is the audio from all the interviews I did with the presenters at the #rEDTech conference on Saturday 17th October 2015. All the audio interviews – link.

PLEASE HELP FUND TRANSCRIPTIONS People don’t realise the costs of making a media resource like this. As you may know I use part of the money I make working for commercial firms and charities to sponsor projects like this myself – however some costs are too expensive to build in no matter how much pro bono work you do. So if any educational firm, publication (or individual) fancies paying to have all or some…

Excerpt: I went down to the first Research Ed Tech conference at the London Connected Learning Centre in Clapham, South London to interview most of the presenters about their talks on Saturday 17th October 2015. I used Periscope for the interviews but didn’t quite get the quality of audio I wanted but I was able to work out what needed doing next time to get better results. I was trialling new kit; I always test out new equipment in ‘real world’ situations as well as my studio. The challenges are interesting and you always learn something. The thing I learned today…

Excerpt: Making live media on the go… I have been filming and livestreaming teacher activity at TeachMeets and Education IT Conferences for over 10 years now. Every since most local authority CPD training centres were closed at the end of the 1980’s I felt a loss of the ability to network with other teachers. In the early years of the 21st century I thought it might be a good idea to document how teachers were beginning to organise, informally, using the internet to meet up and share resources and ideas. For the last 4 years I have been searching for the holy grail…

Getting good audio into your phone or tablet. the basics!

Posted on by leoncych in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Getting good audio into your phone or tablet. the basics!

Excerpt: After a week of intensive video editing I made the rash decision to set up a live video stream demonstrating how to get good audio into your phone or tablet. I did this at the last minute without much prep. I’m trying to establish a live streamed 20 – 30 min informal session each week showing people how to set up and use filming and recording equipment for making media. I think it is vital teachers begin to make their own media or at least understand how the basics work! I made the mistake of video streaming out at impossibly high…
