YouCube: The Latest In Cube-Based Storytelling Technology

I’m mixed. On the one hand, YouCube is a pretty interesting way to compare remixes of a thing (ie. David After Dentist) to the thing itself.

On the other hand, this strikes me as just another one of those tool that depends entirely on a teacher’s pre-existing digital storytelling skills but which also distracts her from developing those skills. (ie. Why learn how to make one video really well when you can put six average videos on a cube!)

    True. But at the same time it would be interesting to use such a tool to examine news coverage about the same event. In California one of the state standards for language arts is to critically analyze media and learn to identify bias.
