Interests: A MANIFESTO FOR THE VISUAL IMAGE Be brave, audacious, and creative in delivering compelling, high-quality online teaching productions. Audio, photography, video, and language facilitate these digital learning strategies. Here are visual insights and solutions for creating new learning. There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, and emotional, and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but, unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person. — Rumer Godden The objective is to develop positive audience engagement with a supportive online community. Using the literary device of anthropomorphism and personification psychological wellbeing stories exemplify key themes. What is your story?

TOPICS SESSION The Chair for this session was Joyce Meiring, assisted by Eddy Jackson. Each speaker was shown a picture of an unknown person or persons in olden day clothing and they had to make up a story about that photograph. Louise – Two well dressed young ladies + Dressed in their finery for the first photograph taken in their family with a description of how the event went, including how they found the whole thing whilst trying to contain their laughter. John – Four Ladies one old three young. + This photograph reminded the speaker of his grandmother and the clothes shown in the photograph were very similar to the clothes that the family still had in their possession. John marvelled at the thin wastes of the ladies and posed the question as to whether modern day women would be able to fit these dresses. Graham – Soldier in Uniform + “A picture paints a thousand words” The photograph was of his grandfather who was a linguist able to speak German, French and Italian Laura – A very old woman with a hearing trumpet § The speaker spoke about the recession and a holiday in Blackpool in 2008 where a member of the family was encouraged to dress up in 1900’s clothing and have their photograph taken. The Topics were Evaluated by Carol Kershaw + and David Knox § Continue reading

Grabbing my hands, with the raiders storming up the stairs, Leif and Magnus gingerly lowering me out of the window, with the old world ending. Capturing Gyda and dragging away, torching the wooden house cremating the interned bodies. These are the worst scene from the nightmares haunting my early life. May I never experience the miasma from hells infernos of the Continue reading

These are the worst scene from the nightmares haunting my early life. May I never experience the miasma from hells infernos of the burning stench of human flesh and panicking, baying animals escaping flaming barns. Stumbling along a forest path with night birds guiding and flanking our paths to safety, a parliament of tawny owls scouting the escape route. Bats sonic screeching helping by spotting hazards and trees. A chorus of pigeons herding the fleeing refugees. Continue reading

And how can we as an audience or viewer apply these to our own personal lives? The story and audio content will be added and supported by multimedia, photography, videos, visual images, sound effects. And what we hope to do is develop and produce a range of multimedia new stories in a genre of Homer, Greek literature, and the biblical tales. The object is to produce about seven short episodes, each of about two or three minutes long as a free online interactive story. Continue reading

What did the hero learn? What can we learn personally from the story? And how do we use the same personal strength when we overcome obstacles in our own lives? The key questions of the story are about who is the hero in this story and why? What challenge or dilemma did the hero overcome? And what personal strengths did the hero possess? What choices did she or he have to make? And how did other people or characters support the hero? Continue reading

The story is about responding to a crisis and overcoming challenges. And we show the motives of the people and hopefully moving to a successful resolution. The main characters in these stories have each got their own personality traits. Their names are Asta, Gidea, Leif, and Magnusson. And the story develops around these people and in the context of a very different time in history. Continue reading

The process becomes stronger when reading this with new media aloud and designing echoing patterns that reflect the characters. What I try and do to is create strong contrasts between good and evil and carefully select words to make people think about powerful feelings. This is the strength of poetry. What happens if we can condense language into a simple storytelling media and add it to online interactive media? It becomes very powerful and is the guiding beacon for this experimental media. This type of prose poem becomes a prophetic witness to the modern way of life that has become violently surreal. A prose poem tends to grow the image over the narrative. Continue reading

Whose interest benefits? – Exam boards, bloated universities, colleges, and schools filled with meddling form fillers lacking in imagination and creativity? Your child, relations, and the country deserve better. Extend the early years, nursery, and infant curriculum from birth to the age of twenty-one years to develop the whole child within 24/7 365 days for twenty years for a dramatic improvement in the nation's ability to win Nobel Prizes or educate children away from so-called teachers and schools.

Like my owners, these toddlers have a zest for life. Being infants, they have the same basic sensory needs as me – touch, smell, sight, feel, hearing, and an awareness for proprioception – running, jumping, twisting, and turning. What laughter and fun we have, but they can never catch me? I dart under the bushes and have secret passages that come out behind them. Plus, I am a lot quieter. They giggle and laugh all the time.

I noticed in my training, socialization, and nurturing; my human’s thoughts mirror contemporary society views and ingrained prejudices. You can see these in tradespeople, hairdressers, conversations in gardens, and people talking in cafes. Or when cloistered middle-class academics are elucidating questionable philosophic dogmas in universities, colleges, and schools. Continue reading

Now, let me tell you how to be a stubborn puppy. Be yourself, have fun, and enjoy acting dumb to gain extra rewards and treat. My humans are very kind, and they never ever get angry with me. I pretend to be very soft and cuddly, and they love it! Do not tell them I am playing with their weaknesses. Continue reading

On hindsight, everything at present is working out well. The anxieties, dilemmas, and decision-making in searching for the right dog - puppy are an important part of the journey. The best decision and major learning point are saying no and walking away from anything that is not right. After viewing a beautiful looking animal that had a capricious temperament and volatile personality and saying no immediately, things changed for the better. Check out and use the Kennel Club's guidelines. They are excellent and necessary in searching for good breeders. Continue reading

We have put together a programme for the next 5 sessions until Christmas so you can ponder if you have the inclination. Most sessions include one 6 to 8 minute speech and I shall name an individual at random. If anyone has an objection to this please say. We are using assignments from the manual which hopefully will help the evaluators as they must see evidence of it. I will send a detailed programme before each meeting. Continue reading
