Students find their K12 school website information and can link to their video project. When students link from the K12 School website it promotes the talent of their students, neighborhoods, local businesses and community scholars for all the world to see.

K12 Superintendents, Principals, Teachers, Educational Technologists, Librarians and Folklorists can help students promote their video projects - their schools, and their towns with their video projects.

What Is Next IT'S ABOUT OUR STORIES  > NO FILTER!

Of the People, By the People, and For the People. #COMMONGOOD

Since #Covid19 has expelled the K12 students across America.

We will work with Partners who want to carry on this historic piece of K12 Internet History, and become part of the Smithsonian's National Attic. Digital story-making in support of student meaning-making.

 

Curriculum is simple:

Kids need a well-rounded liberal arts and technology orientation to all things in this world.

  • The public builds the schools they want them to be - by tapping into and documenting their experiences and telling their own stories.

  • We learn best from the diverse range of views by the wider public.

What do we learn here

HOW CAN BLENDING FOLKLORE INTO INSTRUCTION BE USEFUL FOR MY TEACHING?

 

 

Use Folklife and Techology FIND FOLKLIFE EDUCATION RESOURCES!

 WHAT DO WE LEARN HERE? Disposition / Soft Skills:   

"Folklore is the traditional, unofficial, non-institutional part of culture. It encompasses all knowledge, understandings, values, attitudes, assumptions, feelings, and beliefs transmitted in traditional forms by word of mouth or by customary examples." ~ Jan Brunvand "The Study of American Folklore" -- Covid-19 Resources for Folklore Educators

 

What is Folklife
WHAT IS FOLKLIFE
That's Simple! It Is The Story Of Us!

WHAT IS FOLKLIFE IN AMERICA?

 

What is Folklore
WHAT IS FOLKLORE IN EDUCATION?

WHAT ARE FOLK ARTS?

In The 1930s, Works Program Spelled HOPE For Millions Of Jobless Americans

The projects you build will contain the “folk wisdom” from ordinary people who will show, tell and document their own stories. Collectively there is a lot more than 10,000 hours of learning here. There is wisdom in crowds, and the bigger the crowd and more diverse the crowd, the greater that wisdom. This is the location to experience story, our story! 

  • Do an interview with an elder about lessons learned from previous moments of crisis in our lives; or a series of object biographies on 5 objects in their lives or their worlds whose significance and affective meaning has radically changed in response to the coronavirus crisis; or a mock exhibit on cultural responses in their own lives to the pandemic: jokes, meals, self isolation techniques; dress rituals; etc.

  • "Friend of a Friend" rumors that keep coming over email and texts telling us what is right and wrong to do, what calamities are just around the corner.

  • How does Fear work as a driving force that will affect the shape of tradition?
    1932 FDR said that the one thing we have to fear is fear itself, but he also said that anyone who isn’t paying to the current situation of the Depression is a fool. So, we are in an exacerbated situation of FDR’s claim. And perhaps exploring the essence of tradition will help us think about ways of staying alert but not frantic.

  • A free “Story-a-Day”  drawn from the extensive American Family Stories Project archive.
    Since the stories are short, two to six minutes on average.The tellers come from all over the United States and several villages in Ireland. Some of the tellers are well-known individuals, such as Pete Seeger, Jim Hightower, Lee Smith, Utah Phillips, Laurie Lewis, Alan Jabber, and Jane Yolen, while most are ordinary people with extraordinary tales to tell, like most of us.

 

What are Folk Arts WHAT IS A CULTURE KEEPER?

WHO ARE COMMUNITY SCHOLARS?

FOLKLORE GIVES INSIGHT INTO OUR HUMANITY

"Music is Language, Language is Music" ~ Karen Ellis "the orchestrator"

What I am Doing Now.

Giniker

Interdisciplinary Social Rhythm Researchers
Edward T. Hall Hid in an abandoned car and filmed children romping in a school playground at lunch hour. Screaming, laughing, running and jumping, each seemed superficially to be doing his or her own thing. But careful analysis revealed that the group was moving to a unified rhythm. One little girl, far more active than the rest, covered the entire schoolyard in her play. Hall and his student realized that without knowing it, she was "the director" and "the orchestrator."

RAISING SMART KIDS IS NO SECRET!!

GIVE THEM THE GINIKER !!
Definition of Giniker: means plenty of pep and fire
because the secret to learning is motivation!

TAKE SOME LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM THE DANCING GUY
IF THE LEADER IS THE FLINT THE GINIKER: IS THE LIGHTENING BOLT
THE FIRST FOLLOWER IS THE SPARK THAT PROVIDES THE HEAT WHICH IS "JAZZ"

The 2nd follower is a turning point:
That is the proof that the first one has done well.
Now it's not a lone nut, it's two nuts and that brings the third person and so on and so on .....
Now you have a movement!

Is your Member of Congress a "Thumbs Up" arts champion or an arts threat?

“Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages...”  ~ Robert F. Kennedy March 18, 1968 He demanded a new economic vision and died on June 6, 1968
