First, I would like to say , I like the concept to get the students involved and motivated to study these concepts. I have always been a high school science instructor, however , I can see how this could transfer into the art class by using the slow motion camera. I can see many uses of this concept and these videos in the classroom.
I like your thinking about how a slow-motion video can be helpful in the art classroom.
I was looking for other slow-motion videos and found quite a few at Ultraslo. I am impressed with the quality of their videos and am interested in how these might be useful for teachers and students.
Cool! I've seen some of these ultraslow videos on TV shows (like Myth Busters) but never thought to look for them on the web. (silly me!)
I wonder if the kids asked themselves why the water balloons were stored in tubs of water before the fight, or if they thought it was just because some had burst! Sounds like a lesson in pressure and equalization to me!
I do not have cable at home and we lost our "cable in the classroom" this year. (Don't ask ... it's not a good story.)
If you want to watch some fun ultraslow motion videos, I highly recommend the Discovery Channel Video Podcasts. I found there are 16 Time Warp videos podcasts available for download. My personal favorite is the Time Warp: Blender. The manufacturer of that blender is in my city . My students love the ending of that video podcast when a test of "lighters" is done. Yes, you can probably guess what the result it! I must remind them "DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!"
I'm still trying to find an inexpensive high-speed camera I can use in my classroom to recreate similar slow-motion videos. I can see how this kind of video might help remove some of the misconceptions students have.
