Stand By Me

November 1, 2008 at 10:17 am (video, YouTube)

This YouTube video, and international version of Stand By Me, was shared with me this week.  I was playing it before school started.  Students in my homeroom were attracted by the music so they came over to see what I was up to.  There were so many students crowded around, and I wanted them all to see, so I played it again on the “big screen” with the LCD projector.  Most of them knew the song but never heard of the movie.  I also “screened” it with one of my language arts classes and asked for their reactions to it.  One student articulated how they enjoyed that it was from all over the world.  I asked how this could have been done.  Of course, they knew, identifying that one person probably collected all the video and “spliced and diced” it together.
