Many bloggers want to create their own images as frequently as possible, with camera or software, to accompany their written text. However, often, a near-perfect image is legally available online. Ensuring the image is attributed correctly is very important, especially for educators encouraging students to source images appropriately. Thanks to quick responses to a tweet […]

Sir Ken Robinson: Changing Education Paradigms

Sir Ken Robinson‘s narrative about education is a powerful reading of the institutions at the heart of our societies. It is ‘a reading’ difficult to dispute.  RSA Animate have made this particular paradigm understandable to all with a brilliantly constructed series of drawings. You can see the whole series of RSA animations here. Please, if you […]

Cory Doctorow

Cory Doctorow is an author, essayist, activist and public intellectual I admire greatly. His musings on copyright and creative culture are of particular interest, as is his advocacy for the rights of young people. Educators should be, IMHO, cognisant of his ideas. The fact that Doctorow operates in a traditionally commercial way, as an author who makes the […]

Asperger’s syndrome

Asperger’s syndrome has been explored in a number of creative ways in recent years but many people in the community are still relatively unaware of the impact of the syndrome on the individual’s life.  Dean Groom posted this video on the weekend. It resounds with me too. It is both informative and a good short animation.  [vodpod […]

One Social Web

OneSocialWeb is a ‘free open decentralized social networking platform’ in development and will, undoubtedly, try and capitalise on the widespread dissatisfaction with Facebook’s privacy policies.

"What Teachers Make" by TAYLOR MALI

Seth Godin reminded me of this video in his recent post. It always makes me feel slightly uncomfortable, for a wide-range of reasons. You?

Collaborate and Prevail

I found this 4-minute video at Jane Hart’s site and recommend you watch it. It is advertising for the Internet Time Alliance but explores many of the most important concepts relating to social media, particularly networked economies. Note the reference to Darwin’s theories and that those who learn to collaborate most effectively, prevail. Social networks and social learning are […]

Augmented Reality and 'Rainbows End'

The recent flurry of activity regarding Augmented Reality makes me reflect on how much I liked the ideas in Vernor Vinge’s sci-fi novel, Rainbows End (2006). The characters ‘wear’ the internet and can effectively be online constantly, with no visible apparatus attached to their bodies. ‘Wearing’ allows one to have a completely haptic experience. It is particularly amusing that Robert Gu, […]

Kseniya Simonova – Sand Animation

Kseniya Simonova is a ‘sand animator’ from the Ukraine who explores the ‘Great Patriotic War’ in a unique way. I am looking forward to sharing this with colleagues, students and friends. Enjoy!
