Video lesson: Hey Jude

Posted on: December 28, 2015

I am using the last few days of 2015 to reflect on video-related lessons.

There is much that educators can learn from YouTube videos even if they are not designed with teaching or learning in mind.

This is what Hey Jude sounded like when Paul McCartney got several famous songsters to sing it with him.

This is what it sounded like when Pink sung it with many, many amateurs.

This is the same song sung in minor key.

So what are the possible lessons for educational technology?

It is fun and meaningful to get everyone involved, even if they are not experts.

Sometimes you need to do something that creates a bit of dissonance while keeping things familiar enough for people to recognise what you are doing.
