Wednesday was the Learning Technologies Summer Forum at Olympia. After enjoying the Learning Technologies Exhibition back in January, I was excited for another LT event, particularly since I’ve now been working in e-learning for nearly 8 months, it was great going knowing a little more about the ‘e-learning world’ than I did back in January.
An Historical Perspective
The representation of human archetypes is bound up with film history. Eisenstein consciously developed it to quickly communicate with audiences. The beefy Bolshevik Sailor, the Noble Mother protecting her child. Watch any modern movie and every character is still an archetype, albeit a customized one. The Nerd, the Good Wife, the Action Hero, the Warrior Princess, the Eccentric Scientist. Hollywood hasn’t arrived at this by accident – it works because we do judge people by appearances.
