Education is Fun!

Peter Fantacone Recalls His Memories Of DDay, Serving In The US Navy. I am fascinated by WWII and especially D-Day. My grandfather Clifford Johnson landed in France that day on Normandy and served an honorable tour in Europe. This particular video is very well done and sponsored by A&E. The photos that are shown during the movie are personal collections and he clarified that he is reading his own first hand account of the eventful day. A moving tribute to his friends and fellow service men and women, patriotic music played in the background with a couple voice over moments. This a great video to show to students interested in understanding a real life experience.
I liked this story a lot because it represents the significance of history!

The second video is from vimeo and is a beautiful outdoor scene. This nature scene illustrated and spoke to me about the fragile and ever changing environment we live in. The 2 minute clip has no complications or illegal problems. The natural sounds and pictures evoke an aesthetically pleasing scenario and demonstrate the changing of seasons and passing of time. Educational in a more liberal sense this video promotes the beauty and majesty of nature.

I love to learn and this activity helped me understand what is legal and ethical when creating an educational message.
