WikiVideo - kind of...Playing for Change

I came across this piece while looking for information about best practices in teaching (as an extension of marketing communications formats that go beyond the usual realm of spruiking products and into the information/education end of the spectrum). Great site here from educator Angela Maiers

I like the idea of a continuous theme being expressed by different individuals - reminds me of Russell Davies talk about polyphony-if only in broad conceptual terms that will probably only have any significance to me.

From the award-winning documentary, "Playing For Change: Peace Through Music", comes the first of many "songs around the world" being released independently. Featured is a cover of the Ben E. King classic by musicians around the world adding their part to the song as it travelled the globe. This and other songs such as "One Love" will be released as digital downloads soon; followed by the film soundtrack and DVD early next year.

  1. David, thanks for the mention. I'm so glad this film by Mark Johnson is receiving the credit and recognition it deserves. You said it perfectly, it's "a continuous theme being expressed by different individuals," which in the end weaves us together in a powerful and synergistic combination.

    If you come across more educational projects like this, I would love to hear about them and continue the conversation!

  2. This video is absolutely amazing-the world really is smaller than we think.

    Like you, I believe that we are all educators looking for best practice in our work-whomever our clients are.

    I am so thrilled to have found you! Thanks so much for the link and extending the conversation with both our readers!

  3. Thanks Angela - and for your site - I find it useful and interesting - will refer often.
