Vidiot Village

Welcome to Vidiot Village!

Your stay will be fully visual, virtual, and value-added. There are no words to heed, nothing to read. We have video phones, video games, video homes for all your vidiocentricities.

You'll experience wall-to-wall, 24-7 vidiography, vidioscopy, vidiomancy, vidiosupremacy.

Look, look, look--always grove to what moves. It all moves--all the time. Never a typographic moment. Never a dead page, mere words. No dead ink. This place glows and grows and glitters.

We have video-volcanos, video tomatos, video tornados!

"You can check out any time you want, but you can never leave."

WOW. This entry is real gold. In so many view it depicts what I think of these Villages that emerge amid our dying Christians brains... oh well.

Two questions:
1. How do we maximize on the value of media and technology. What practical ways have you personally went about this?
2. How do you do this (maximize on it) without falling into the same mindlessness? Can media and pictorial learning be used to help people get to the next level? Can we, in a sense, manipulate visual learning in such a way that will help others to be weened off of it? Use it, but not as end in itself, but as a means to greater learning?
I find myself in a place where I want to meet people where they are at (in regard to their learning abilities), but I don't exactly know how to do this effectively. Any ideas?
