Curating idea - Painting with Video

I don't know how we could do this, (any of you computer geniuses?) but talk about a super cool way to curate images! I use them as an example of guerrilla art with my students. I would love to be able to do something like this. Don't know how... but "imagine the possibilities!" (quoting Kate there)

Sweatshoppe  is the group that does this. Here is a little write up about them.

I've uploaded their video, and here is their website:

Teachers After Hours

Did I post about this yet?

I have a blog where I keep track of brainstorming, ideas for art, ideas for curriculum, improving teaching practice etc.  I keep this because
A. I keep losing slips of paper where I'd write "brilliant" ideas (see Seinfeld episode, lost joke)
B. Can access anywhere and want to keep track and develop ideas, flashes of inspiration
C. Documents how much freaking time teachers work outside of the classroom (especially the obsessive ones)

I'd love for feedback. You can feel free to make use of my brainstorming... but I'd love to hear your ideas or inspirations in response...

Does Anyone have a SHoM Intro powerpoint?

Has anyone created a powerpoint that explains SHoM?

Gives definition of each habit?
Photos that are examples of habit?
Student Reflective Writing for each habit?

I want to train students more effectively.  If someone already has it, that would be awesome!

Are we still putting that kind of stuff on Google Drive? Or on blog?
