Implication for Teaching and Learning

     Application on youtube can provide training to its users through the use of and exposure to these media. Even though Youtube is lack of educational goal, but through direct application to youtube, users can be exposed to the new media experience. It will give advantages to users especially for students to heighten their visual literacy which is an important skills in electronic culture today.  

      Many educators believe that the act of creating content in virtually any form is a valuable learning exercise, helping develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter and the tools used to create that content. To the extent that YouTube facilitates such creation, it has the potential to expose students to new insights and skills, as well as link them to various online communities. As a social-software application, YouTube is part of a trend among Net Generation students to replace passive learning with active participation, where everyone has a voice, anyone can contribute, and the value lies less in the content itself than in the networks of learners that form around content and support one another in learning goals (Educause Learning Initiative, 2006). 

     In conclusion, youtube will not only play a role in providing entertainment, but it can also be used to groom young talent for this new media applications. Users should be aware of current developments and should be wise to take this opportunity in order to move in line with current technology today.

Music Video and Lyrics

If I had known it was our last walk in the rain,
I’d keep you out for hours in the storm,
I would hold your hand, like a lifeline to my heart,
And underneath the thunder we’d be warn,
If I had only known it was our last walk in the rain.

If I had only known I’d never hear your voice again,
I’d memorize each thing you ever said,
And on these lonely nights, I could think of them, once more,
And keep your words alive inside my head,
If I had only known I’d never hear your voice again.

You were the treasure in my heart,
You were the one who always stood beside me,
So unaware, I foolishly believed that you would always be there,
But then there came a day when I closed my eyes,
And you slipped away.

If I had only known it was my last night by your side,
I’d pray a miracle would stop the dawn,
And when you smile at me, I would look into your eyes,
And make sure you know my love for you goes on and on,
If I had only known, If I had only known.

The love I would’ve shown,
If I had only known

Youtube has a lot of functions.  Normally music video in youtube consist of lyrics.  Thus, why music video always has lyrics along with it?  According to Heidi Peter, lyrics is like a semiotics.  It has to be written.  In other words, it was a sign.  Music video and lyrics is like a glue.  It stick together because, the song won't be meaningful without the lyrics.

According to the lyrics above, it is about a expression of feeling: love. The song was written by a women to remember her aunt as she pass away without signal.

Embed Codes & Share Button on Youtube : An Invitation to Infringe on Copyrights?

    Have we ever thought when we took the video from Youtube, it is one action that will lead to infringement of copyright? Maybe you never thought about the implications towards copyright, which is very serious issue that have to concern about.  But, we do not have to worry if we use it in the right way.  Embed codes and “share” buttons are a fast and easy way to share and diffuse information.  Let say you have a favorite video on Youtube and you want to share it with all your friends on Facebook, you can just click on “Share – Facebook” and your video will automatically appear on your Facebook page. But, you may wonder, do these embed codes make copyright infringement easier?  If the video page permits embedding, does this give me the right to publish it anywhere I want? How do I know when not to embed without permission? Should a formal request for permission be used whenever I want to share someone else’s material? If I display an embed code on my blog or website, am I allowing my content and material to be spread everywhere?

     Apparently, there is no real law on embed codes and copyright as well does not apply. In fact, when you decide to share or embed something that isn’t yours, you are not copying it claiming that the material is yours, you are simply sharing it, providing a link to it and if you don’t copy, then you are not breaking copyright law. The content is never passed through your server, but streamed directly from the host site. Also, there is really no need for a formal permission request to the owner of the material, shall you wish to embed it, because the owner itself decides to make his material embeddable or non embeddable, he has a choice and if he doesn’t want to have his material shared, it won’t be happen. Most users actually prefer their material to be spread, so more people can get to experience it and know them (Isabella & Maya, 2010).

      So, in conclusion, what we can say that is share buttons and embed codes haven't really triggered web copyright issues, because they have just eased our way to communicate in an effortless and fast way.  Embed codes use is just to share material which is different form of copying something and claiming it one's own.  Even the Copyright Law has a lot of revising to concern these communications means, but ultimately embed codes and share buttons stay true to the prime philosophy of Internet and the web.  It simply to say diffusion of anything for anybody, without excessive limitations.

Understanding The Photo Value

Have u ever realize one photo can describe a thousand meaning?  What does it mean by "A picture is worth a thousand words"?  This was probably due to the facts that photo has light and color effects, the posture of person involve inside, their emotions, their body gesture, the face expression and many more.
According to Walter Benjamin, there is a little history of photo where it is "the phenomenon of photography" as still being "a great and mysterious experience"—even if, for them, this was no more than the consciousness of "standing before a device which in the briefest time could capture the visible environment in a picture that seemed as real and alive as nature itself."
            The purpose of the photo being taken is to create a memory about the place, or people and event involve.  Usually, the photo resemblance about thing related with the happiness.  It is rarely to hear people take photo while they are sad, unless the photo itself was taken by other people.  Same goes to the angry and other expression.
            In modern technology era, there’s lot of device to take picture.  One of the most nearer device with our daily life is hand phone or mobile phone.  This probably due to the facts that we bring it with us everywhere we go.  Other device could be camera, video camera, computer camera and not to forget MP5.
            The value of the photo or picture taken is for the future used which to be remember as a memory.  This can be seen through family picture and things that we go through in life.  Secondly, photo can also be used in education.  This can be seen through lecturer slide in class to attract the student.  Thirdly, photo value is to create good environment in our life, for example the picture of beautiful environment like waterfall being put in the house to create warm feelings.  Not only that, photo value also for history use liked what we seen now.  For instance, the picture of our former prime minister like Tunku Abdul Rahman.  Yet, photo also for media purpose like advertising purposes.  This can be seen through advertising like McDonald who show it burgers and price.
            Furthermore, photo value is to create joke like cartoon picture and many more.  Thus, it is also important to be proving for something that happen or in other words a witness.  For example, Tomlinson, a London guy being killed by a New Yorker picture that being taken.  This can be very important record for the police officer.  Last but not least, photo can be way to find money.  This can be seen through career like photographer where people get money just by taking picture.  Therefore, in this issue, photo has a lot of value depend on how people use it.  The understanding of photo is important in order to avoid misunderstanding about certain issue which can be seen in scandal or so on.  As a matter of conclusion, used photo sharing carefully and please don’t ever misuse the technology that we have but appreciate it.

Beware of Photo Sharing

It sounds good when we can share any photo that had been captured and share it to others by posting it or uploading it on the internet. However, we must be careful with what we must and must not share as it is related to our privacy where we might not want to get exposed by others to notice. At google you can control the photo that you would like to share by clicking this link . It’s easier right? We must control our desire and not just simply reveal or expose our privacy to others especially to the person that we don’t know or recognize. We can also share photo by using Flickr by login to Yahoo.

My personal view is that when I was thinking of photo sharing, I will start to think about the bad side and the good side of it. Sharing is just like reflecting yourself to the whole world. Just imagine, if your personality in reality was a good girl when suddenly you share a picture that totally different with your personality will actually beyond your mind can make you yourself become the other side or it can be negative. I saw many people who share photo that can exposed them to danger or even can commit themselves to criminal. Take note that : "Bad News Travel Fast" Our action might being watched by others.

We are human being and we cant run away with gossip by others. Each and every step that we take will be watched by others. Watch out you step. Your image might be spoil with just a picture or photo that you share.
