Vimeo.com for high quality HD videos

It was one of those Friday's and while doing some follow up reading and video research of Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis's 21st Century Learners - namely the HD video snippets posted to Vimeo . wiki. I began to wander as one does around the product at Vimeo.com. I alighted on this time lapse piece by Ross Ching and wow, you have to watch it as full screen HD, I must admit it hit the spot at 1.30 on a Friday afternoon - I now invite you to do the same full screen HD with the audio turned up ( I hope that your bandwidth holds up as it will be worth it.

Death Cab for Cutie - Little Bribes from Ross Ching on Vimeo.


The next and totally unrelated vimeo video is a speech made by Barack Obama at the White House Correspondents Dinner on 9th May, this shows a relaxed intelligent President making jokes at his own - and it must be said GeorgeW and Dick Cheney's expense!..... definitely worth a watch.

Dragging myself back to academic pursuits it was Ray Jones's video below which deflected me to the Vimeo

21st Century Learners Workshop - Qatar Academy-Part I from Ray Jones on Vimeo.


Prior to this I had been following the excellent YouTube videos of the Flat Classroom Conference from back in January they are fascinating, showing cross cultural collaboration in action.

What it shows is how pupils respond to being introduced to their peers in other countries and cultures..... they can certainly show the older generation the meaning of being a global citizen ( Thank you Julie and Vicki)
