Teacher Talk with Lisa Parisi


This was my second show.  My guests were Cheryl Lykowski and Jennifer Wagner.  Jose Rodriguez joined us after about a half hour.  This show ended up editing to almost an hour.  I tried to edit more out of the conversation but it was all so interesting, at least to me, that I left it all in.  I ended up just taking out dead air, ums, and the start up chatter and ending chatter.

I had a last minute change in computers after simplecast crashed on me.  The skype gods stayed on my side.  Only difficulty was audio on my mic was really low.  Special thanks to Jorge Rodriguez for his superb storytelling;  you can contact him at buscaespantos@yahoo.com.mx

Stories referred to on show below;

 

La Llorona; The Weeping Women a women that drowned her children and now is cursed to look for them for eternity. We talked about the different versions popular throughout Mexico. Many people claimed to have seen her, even today. Rosendo shared his experience. One night his wife sewing late into the night when she heard her wailing down the streets.

Duendes/Chaneques; miniture goblins that create havoc. Don Resendo gives us examples of how the goblins would hide their sandals and throw them in the prickly pears. Don Rosendo talks about duendes appearing near the Laguna where he lives now. 

Tales from the Belen Cemetery in Guadalajara Mexico. El nino que le tenia miedo a la oscuridad.(Nachito) The boy that  was afraid of the darkness.  When he was left at home and his night light went off, he died of fright.  When he was buried the next day its tomb was open and the body outside. The grave digger reburried the body.  Each night for the next 10 days the same would happen.  It wasn't until his body was put on an outside grave with the body exposed so that light would it rest in peace.  Visitors still routinely leave candy and and toys to him. Many believe him to be a guardian angel.

Tales about Giants. The Mountain of dead in the state of Aguas Calientes.  How Giants that lived on Earth were called back to the heavens.  When they refused to go they were turned into Mountains.  There was a certain romanticism. About a couple of Giants that still walk the alleys of Aguas Calientes.  

Jorge shared with us a story about the great Volcanoes. The son of the Sun and the daughter of the moon come down to Earth. An Adam and Eve story and how they lost their divinity.  When She dies he is so heartbroken he stays at her side until and filled with sorrow the cries his hear out (literally) the Sun God so endeared decides to keep them together forever as the two great Volcanoes outside of Mexico City.

Kevin shared with us his trip to Puebla.  The Folklore he learned while there.   Jorge tells us of the Creation of the Sun and the Moon. How the Sun is put in the sky. and how when the Moon is created it was just as bright as the Sun. The Aztec Gods decide this could not be.  The Aztec Gods thew a rabbit at the Moon.  It's impression is still there today.  And with impact it starts the Moons rotation around the Earth.

Finally, Don Rosendo shares his personal stories of the bracero life in El Norte.  The times he shared with my grandfather Tomas Rodriguez.

Open Source Learning

I think I first heard the term; "Open Source Learning" in chat in the Webcast Academy.  I thought I knew what it was. I figured it referred to us choose what content we wanted to learn on the internet.  I heard Will Richardson refer to ideas on the Read-Write Web and the like.  I also keep up with other superbloggers like Wesley Fryer, Miguel Ghulin, David Warlick, Christopher Sessums, Steven Downes just to name a few.  I even particpated in K12Online last year and Web Heads in Action Online Conference this year along with Necc2007 not to mention everything happening at edtechtalk.  Nevertheless understanding comes through the practice or application and not theory.  Not until Webcast Academy did I begin to understand Open Source Learning. It just all clicked today.  I got a call from Kevin Sandridge a teacher in central Florida, we had a long talk about web 2.0 and implications for Second Language Learners, Yesterday Susan was asking about classes to recruit for youthbridges. I had a conversation with Chris Craft about a project on digital storytelling on Friday.  And Today it just came all together.  Dennis was uploading his file to Webcast Academy. It didn't show up in the flash player.  I thought I would help out.  How hard could it be.  80 minutes later with Susan patiently waiting on the sidelines we defeated the audacity gremlins and sucessfully uploaded the file.  I felt great and was happy to be able to contribute.  Open Source Learning means building on collective knowledge.  NOW, I've GOT IT!
