TTT#307 Jimmy Santiago Baca, Medical Humanities, and Narrative Medicine with Rex Veeder, Sara Wedeman, Michael MacBride 7.25.12


65:09 minutes (44.73 MB)

More about Jimmy Santiago Baca, his poetry and his inspiration on this episode of TTT (recorded earlier this summer). We are joined by +Rex Veeder, +Sara Wedeman, and +Michael MacBride.

Rex writes: I am gathering some folks to talk about Medical Humanities and Narrative Medicine and it's relationship to education K through Higher Ed.

Also:

The survive and thrive conference and festival as an example of a different kind of conference for writing, art, education, science, and medicine (integrated), and the the Baca/Gleik kickistarter as an example of the principles in action -- how does an event reveal the relationships inherent in putting what we learn into practice?

This was the second of two shows http://edtechtalk.com/node/5118 this summer to help our some of our colleagues reach their Kickstarter goal of raising $50,000 to complete a documentary about Jimmy Santiabo Baca. They went beyoud their goal, and (according to a recent email) are busy at work.

On the earlier show, we met teachers +Denise VanBriggle and +Kym Sheehan as well as filmmaker +Daniel Glick. They told us more about a film project called "A Place to Stand,” which Daniel is making. The three of them used Kickstarter to raise money to finish a feature-length documentary about the life and poetry of Jimmy Santiago Baca http://www.jimmysantiagobaca.com

On a recent post on the National Writing Project's Connect http://connect.nwp.org/national/blog/16429/join-us-support-place-stand-documentary Denise and Kym write:

A Place to Stand is a documentary film (http://kck.st/NsBX8g) about New Mexico poet Jimmy Santiago Baca and his transformation in the 1970s from an illiterate convict to a celebrated poet. Since his release, Jimmy has become one of the foremost Mexican American poets in America.

We're not viewing this as just a film. For us, this is about service. Jimmy’s memoir and poetry have inspired prisoners to leave gangs, drug addicts to stay clean, and countless others to dramatically shift the course of their lives. A Place to Stand will make his inspiring story and poetry available to many who would never find it otherwise. Free copies will be given to detention centers, prisons and schools for at-risk youth, coupled with programming designed to help people find in themselves what Jimmy found through his poetry: a place to stand in life, a sense of self-worth, and a reason to live.

Saturday, October 13: Join the Classroom 2.0 LIVE Community for a webinar preview of the 2012 K-12 Online Conference. Organizers will discuss what’s new in this year’s conference, “Learn, Share and Remix.” Get a taste of the presentations coming in our strands this year, Getting Started, Visioning New Curriculum, Kicking It Up a Notch and Student Voices. Also learn about our dynamic pre-conference keynote presentation, to be shared by Kevin Honeycutt. The homepage of Classroom 2.0 LIVE (http://live.classroom20.com) will have the direct Blackboard Collaborate links the week prior to this show.

The 2012 K-12 Online Conference is coming to a computer near you soon! This year’s FREE online conference will take place the weeks of Oct 22 – 25 and Oct 29 – Nov. 2, with a pre-conference keynote by Kevin Honeycutt on October 15th. The 2012 theme is, “Learn, Share, Remix.”
 
The organizer team for this year’s conference selected “Learn, Share, Remix” for our theme because it embodies many of the ACTIONS we can model as 21st century teachers and students. We all want to model lifelong learning. Our digital connections afford us amazing opportunities to SHARE what we are learning along the way. REMIXING is the process taking knowledge and using it in creative and innovative ways. Remixers build on the work of others. REMIXING can also include transforming the ways we teach and learn. In each strand of our conference this year, we hope presenters will explore and model ways we can learn, share and remix our professional development.
 
As we have in the past six years since K12Online started in 2006, our conference will continue to be primarily asynchronous, offering downloadable videos for participants to view at any time. We will also host several live events during this year’s conference. All conference dates will be listed on our 2012 Schedule. http://k12onlineconference.org/?page_id=1046
  • Gail Desler and Natalie Bernasconi will keynote our “Getting Started” strand, one of two strands to be shared the first full week of our conference October 22 – 25.
  • Karen Fasimpaur will keynote our second strand for week one of our 2012 conference, “Visioning New Curriculum.” This is a new and exciting strand for K-12 Online this year.
