  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Learning Objects

Learning Objects

  • represent a new way of thinking about learning content.
  • much smaller units of learning – self contained, reusable, and web-based.

Learning Objects do not take the place of teachers or textbooks. Rather, they are supplemental content designed to appeal to a variety of learning styles and provide students additional opportunities to learn.

Since LOs are small, self-contained, independent chunks of knowledge, they can be re-used by others in multiple contexts for multiple purposes and presented as components of instruction or as reference information.

They should be based on a clear instructional strategy – intended to cause learning through internal processing and/or action.

The best Learning Objects are interactive, requiring students to view, listen to, respond to or interact with the content in some way.

LOs are often aggregated, collected, and grouped into larger collections of content for broad dissemination. Some subjects, such as science, have hundreds of LOs available. There are very few in the area of the arts. (More about learning objects here or here.)
