The Video that Started it All

And, on the topic of using your digital footprint to change the world . . .

The Video:

What did you like about the video?
What problems might there be with capturing Kony? (Read some of the criticisms online about Kony 2012.)

Now What?
  • What can you do?
  • What do you want to do?
  • How will you do it?
  • Can it reach beyond the boundaries of our school? SD? Community? City? Province? Country? (The answers to each of these questions poses problems ... how will you solve them?)
  • How will you capture or record your actions? (pictures, videos, writing, audio, mashups)
  • How can share and spread your ideas? (blogging?)

    I've heard that this whole Kony 2012 campaign is actually all just a big fake. I've heard that Kony has been either already arrested or he has been inactive for like 14 years.. I'm kind of disappointed because that video touched my heart and now I don't really know what to believe. Also the guy who started the whole campaign had a melt down. He stripped down naked on the San Diego beach and stared running around. He also did some inappropriate things that I don't know if I can say here on your blog Mrs. Mclauchlan. I'm quite disappointed and confused on this whole matter now.
