The Digital Blackout tells the story of a high school that conducted a "Social Experiment." They challenged their student body (and faculty) to put away the Facebook and Twitter, the text and instant messaging, and record their experience. The Digital Blackout is eye opening. It highlights, among other things: ~ The astounding amount of time that we routinely devote to online social networks ~ The face-to-face experiences and real friendships that the internet has maybe devalued ~ The stress brought on by our over-connectedness ~ And (yes!) the many benefits of our digitally inter-connected world that one rightly misses during a Blackout. The Digital Blackout also includes the latest research on the effects of multitasking and social networking from acclaimed Stanford Professor Clifford Nass. In the excerpt below, Nass explains the importance of face-to-face relationships and the impact they have in developing one's emotional intelligence. The Digital Blackout is equal parts intriguing documentary, motivation for a fun challenge, and fascinating social experiment for the 21st century.

By Daniel Moshel Centered around two people homebound by their disabilities who have found community online, LOGIN 2 LIFE explores the growing number of people who spend much of their lives in online virtual worlds. Elaborate digital platforms like Second Life and World of Warcraft offer novel opportunities for friendship, sex, employment, and aesthetic experience in virtual communities populated by cartoon-like avatars. While these simulated worlds are often treated with contempt by the general media, LOGIN 2 LIFE takes a more sympathetic approach, profiling seven people deeply immersed in these worlds, and attempting to understand what each gets from their virtual life. Paralyzed from the neck down in a car accident, 27 year-old Corey spends most of his days playing World of Warcraft, exploring a virtual landscape with far greater ease than he can move through his physical one. Alice, 60, has limited mobility due to multiple sclerosis. In Second Life, she is able to draw on her skills as an educator and volunteer to run an in-game business that provides resources to other disabled people. We also meet a diverse cast of characters from around the world, whose different online engagements illustrate the range of motivations for choosing a largely virtual existence. Kevin, a middle-aged family man in Florida, makes his living selling virtual sex devices within the Second Life universe. Philippe, in France, is an award-winning director of World of Warcraft machinima who has turned is hobby into a career. In China, a family of World of Warcraft "gold farmers" toil endlessly online, earning in-game currency that can be sold for real money. LOGIN 2 LIFE reconsiders the demarcation usually drawn between physical and online worlds. The film asks us to consider whether the people we have met are exceptions, driven to digital immersion by particular needs, or if they are pioneers of a lifestyle that will soon become commonplace. Reviews ~ "Captures the essence of online community and real relationships in cyberspace...LOGIN 2 LIFE is not the first documentary to portray and examine how people interact online, but it is one of the first to demonstrate the positive possibilities." - TILT Magazine ~ "An impressive feat...director Daniel Moshel refrained from portraying his subjects as freaks or clowns for the audience to laugh at. Instead, he unpacks their motivations and desires in a way that pulls you into their stories." - Betterverse Award ~ Premiere, 2012 Festival of Audiovisual Programs (FIPA), France

Social networking sites are open to anyone however offer a low level of security and protection. Because students often post detailed and specific information, they can be more easily stalked by strangers or even acquaintances. The purpose of most of these networks is to allow individuals and groups to keep in touch and track the daily lives of each other. By keeping things at the status quo on the social networking sites, the result is a micro society of friends that is more open than ever before. However students don't often consider the dangers that social networking introduces to their lives. The content they place on the networks can easily make them vulnerable to all sorts of threats. Some of these threats are minor, but some can be incredibly severe. A photo shared between two people can quickly become a viral phenomenon. By using the text messaging service on their cell phones, computers or other electronic devices, teens engage in sexting by sending flirtatious messages back and forth. Sexting is currently illegal under federal law. It falls under the creation, distribution and possession of child porn and is a felony offense. While some lawmakers are working to change this, others are prosecuting both those taking the pictures and those possessing them. Subjects Covered Include: ~ What are the benefits of Social Networking Sites? ~ What are the dangers of Social Networking? ~ What should you not post on your site? ~ What is the impact from incriminating & inappropriate information posted on network sites? ~ Can postings on a network site effect employment? ~ The Felony charges associated with sexting

By Georg Boch Theodor Adorno was an influential member of the Frankfurt School of social theory ˇX a German-born intellectual who fled Nazi Germany for America, and whose work anticipates and informs much post-modern theory. In this revolutionary "participatory documentary," digital filmmaker Georg Boch, one of more than 200 people that belong to a Facebook group called "Adorno Changed My Life," sets out to learn how Adorno's work has touched the group's lives. For the film, Boch solicits videos and Skype conversations. Unlike the traditional documentary, this approach allows each of the participants to frame how they want to be perceived and to direct their own conversations. For art historian Travis English, who shamelessly multitasks on camera, reading Adorno for the first time was like "swallowing a stick of dynamite." Australian intellectual Ivan Krisjansen (who uses a portrait of Adorno as his Facebook profile photo) compares it to "climbing Mount Everest, standing on the peak and being able to see forever." Digital culture critic Dennis Redmond ˇX who at times speaks in front of a shelf full of teddy bears ˇX sees parallels between Adorno's work and the digital commons. Redmond encourages viewers to read random pages from Adorno to see how they seamlessly fit into a whole in the same way that fragments of digital culture mesh. It's also a metaphor for the film itself: far-flung, isolated members of an online group whose individual contributions are transformed into a cultural product. The film also makes no attempt to hide its digital roots. Rather than cleaning up time lags or sharpening focus, it celebrates the imperfections of digital communication. FACEBOOK'S "ADORNO CHANGED MY LIFE" resists the temptation to offer a potted guide to the philosopher's thought. Instead, it allows its participants to set the terms of the conversation, and to reveal their relationships to Adorno's work. Even if they feel, as does Moldavian emigrant Vitalie Bezdiga, that "Theodore Adorno is of no great help when it comes to jobs or employment."

Not everyone is happy with traditional forms of media. Concerns about independence and a decline in public debate have left many feeling that their voice will never be heard or considered. However, the internet has meant that ordinary people can be both producer and distributor of information and opinions through web-logs (blogs). However, the question still remains; are their voices really being heard? Having an online presence is one thing, but how do you attract attention to your blog when there are already 8.5 million bloggers out there? This program will inform students about the emergence of blogs, look at their associated negatives and positives and debate whether they really are an opportunity for the alternative voice or just uncensored rants. Please contact us for primary and secondary schools pricing.
