Effective Education for Disaster Risk Reduction - Learning Matters.
For those of you who don't know or are unsure what it is 'Vine' is an App that can be downloaded and used on iOS or Android smartphones. Vine is a mobile service that lets you create and share short looping videos. Videos you post to Vine will appear on your Vine profile and the timelines of your Vine followers. Posts can also be shared to Twitter or Facebook. You sign up for an account (I used my twitter account as it is connected then for letting our 3000 follows know what I have uploaded) and there you go! A short six second video to get your point across.
I am using the Silly Timmy comics as a way of adding a further dimension to an otherwise flat medium. Whereas the initial comics can be read at a slow pace, allowing the reader and the comic to exist in their own timeline and therefore processing space, six seconds require quick readers! Therefore it is actually aimed at older students and young adults. Which is where the sound effects come in! There are easy ways to use sounds that are free on the internet and as some of the sounds are created by me (you will have to see the clips I am including below!) to create quite a good comic effect!
For now, please enjoy and if you or your organisation start using them, please let me know through the app or through twitter. You can find edu4drr on Vine by searching edu4drr (I like to keep it simple, like disaster preparedness itself!)
