Interviewer: We’re gonna do a very quick, like a little popcorn share, which means one person shares one way that they listed a specific example of fair use. We’ll just go one person, and they call on the next person, and the next one calls on the next person.
The purpose of the popcorn share is to hear a flood of ideas from as many different voices as possible. One person will share a quick, laser-sharp response to a question, and then next will share a different idea, and then it goes on and on and on. We get lots of ideas and lots of student opportunity to talk and share in a quick, rapid-fire kind of situation.
Interviewee: I noticed that on a lot of videos on YouTube, they would take the famous banana—if you type in, “Try not to make me laugh,” they have the famous dancing banana who goes like that.
Interviewee: He didn’t really use it in his own words. Copied it from other music videos.
Interviewee: Anybody can basically use it without—it’s not actually being illegal to copyright it.
Interviewer: Students want to be heard, so it’s a way to acknowledge that students wanna participate in the room. Also, it activates the students’ listening skills. In that kind of situation, like if someone who said the exact same thing right before you did, you’d have to think of something different, or you take a pass, so you get as many different ideas so there’s diversity in the conversation.
The popcorn share and having students call on one another really, really promote building community and having everyone’s voice really be heard and not having it be so teacher centered in the classroom. That’s really important to me.
