    A Conversation with Marc Prensky - Best Schools
    See on Scoop.it - Learning Futures

    Today’s kids are becoming empowered, both by technology and by society, to do things that kids could never do in the past. These kids represent a huge untapped group available to make the world a better place. The subtitle of my book is “Unleashing the Power of 21st-century Kids.”

    The “academic” education we have offered our kids in the recent past—and still offer today to all, with its core subjects of math, English, science, and social studies (“the MESS”)—which was once useful, is no longer right for these empowered kids nor for the world in which they are growing up and will live.

    Our current “academic” education is wrong for the future not because we haven’t added enough technology, or because we haven’t added enough so-called 21st century skills, or because we don’t offer it to everyone equally, or even because we haven’t tried hard to incrementally improve it.

    It’s wrong for the future because it has—and we have—the wrong ends, or goals, in mind. Up until now, education has been about improving individuals. What education should be about in the future is improving the world—and having individuals improve in the process.

    How to Become and Remain a Transformational Teacher
    See on Scoop.it - Learning Futures

    However talented, no one is a natural-born teacher. Honing the craft takes significant care and effort, not just by the individual, but also by the school at large. Though experience does matter, it matters only to the extent that a teacher – regardless of how long he or she has been in the classroom – commits to continued professional development to refresh his or her status as a transformational teacher. Along those lines, even after a decade in the classroom, I don’t claim to be beyond criticism – not in the least. Still, I wish to offer some advice on constantly striving toward perfection, however elusive that goal will always remain.

    Educating our youth to care about each other and the world
    See on Scoop.it - Global Sustainable Development Goals in Education

    In 2015, 193 countries committed to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, a shared vision of humanity that provides the missing piece of the globalisation puzzle. The extent to which that vision becomes a reality will in no small way depend on what is happening in today’s classrooms. Indeed, it is educators who hold the key to ensuring that the SDGs become a real social contract with citizens.

    Goal 4, which commits to quality education for all, is intentionally not limited to foundation knowledge and skills, such as literacy, mathematics and science, but emphasises learning to live together sustainably. This has inspired the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), the global yardstick for success in education, to include global competence in its metrics for quality, equity and effectiveness in education. PISA will assess global competence for the first time ever in 2018.

    PISA conceives of global competence as a multidimensional, lifelong learning goal. Globally competent individuals can examine local, global and intercultural issues, understand and appreciate different perspectives and world views, interact successfully and respectfully with others, and take responsible action toward sustainability and collective well-being.

    It is worth looking at these four dimensions in some more detail.

    Higher education provosts and chief academic officers (CAOs) have come of age, personally and professionally, with the technologies that are now ubiquitous on campus and in the consumer market. However, considerable survey data and numerous conversations suggest that many provosts and CAOs remain skeptical about the potential or claimed benefits of information technology as a resource for teaching, learning, and instruction. They are also concerned about the significant investments that institutions make to support information technology for those purposes.1

To fully understand the total student experience, data about student interactions with rec and wellness centers, student support services, and certainly academic advising centers are being collected and analyzed as they’re added to the traditional classroom attendance and engagement model.

When we started the intention was to make it distinct from the NMC New Horizon reports by focusing on pedagogy. I think, to be honest, in those early ones there was probably a technology focus still, but as it’s progressed it has really moved away from this to more pedagogy, socially focused issues.

One major study, which has recently come to the attention of the popular press [here and here], was conducted by Matthew Mayhew and his colleagues at NYU.[1] These researchers surveyed thousands of college seniors, at five different institutions of higher education, with a battery of psychological tests and questionnaires. One of their major findings was an inverse relationship between students’ reported GPA and their orientation toward creative or innovative work. The higher the grade point average, the lower was the students’ interest in innovation.

    Stationed around the class, each robot has a mounted video screen controlled by the remote user that lets the student pan around the room to see and talk with the instructor and fellow students participating in-person. 

    The study, published in Online Learning, found that robot learning generally benefits remote students more than traditional videoconferencing, in which multiple students are displayed on a single screen.

    [PDF] Instructional Design in Higher Education
    See on Scoop.it - Digital Learning - beyond eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education

    Learning — to some it is the sound of chalk on blackboards,  the search through stacks of scribbled notes, and backpacks full of heavy textbooks. For others with a less traditional lens, learning is the summoning of professors with a click of a mouse, assignments no longer living on paper, but in a cloud, and the ‘classroom’ being everywhere. Education has changed considerably in recent years and we don’t expect it to slow down anytime soon.


    Because of the advancement of technology, institutions are able to reach more students than ever with the help of quality and accessible online courses. ‘eLearning’, ‘distance education’, ‘blended learning’, ‘online campuses,’ and other related programs have grown more prominent in higher education institutions. According to NCES data, there were 5.5 million students enrolled in distance education courses at degree-granting postsecondary institutions in fall of 2013.

    There are many technologies flooding the market that help foster innovative teaching and learning. These tools, such as learning management systems, lecture capture systems, simulation creators, authoring, and video and audio tools, have flooded into the classrooms and lecture halls of higher education. However, the inference that these innovative tools aid learning should not be immediately assumed. With faculties’ full work load, learning and implementing new and often complex tools to improve their online pedagogy isn’t a priority. In fact, as the needs and tools of institutions have evolved, instructional designers have positioned themselves as pivotal players in the design and delivery of learning
    experiences. Instructional designers exist to bridge the gap between faculty instruction and student online learning. But who, exactly, are instructional designers? What do they do? Where do they fit in higher education?

    After this all-too-brief coronation, I then had to break the disappointing news that I was not royalty, but merely a professor from a university. Now they had the knowledge. But much more interesting and engaging for them had been that magical moment before they had the knowledge – the wonderful moment of ignorance.

    We should cherish this kind of ignorance. It’s not the ignorance that refutes knowledge and expertise. It’s not prejudice or stupidity. It is simply the absence of knowing that invites and anticipates the knowledge that is to come. One of life’s most blissful states is the space, moment or portal that separates ignorance from knowledge, that distinguishes not knowing from knowing, curiosity from certainty.

    A lot of the modern participation in the games industry on the part of Indigenous creators is through consulting on game projects, LaPensée said, where they share their input, stories, or even design ideas, but don’t get credited like the rest of the game team. She’s hoping that her work will inspire other Indigenous creators to be able to tell their stories in their own way, and have some sovereignty over their material. “More often than not, Indigenous creatives who have made a space for themselves,“ she said, "have had to fight to do it. There’s this need for them to constantly create in order for them to break through.”

    Here’s a piece from Gartner that makes some good points about data storytelling. https://www.gartner.com/smarterwithgartner/use-data-and-analytics-to-tell-a-story/

    James Richardson, is research director at Gartner. By some of his comments, my guess is that he is most likely not a trained business storyteller, but someone who has acquired skills in storytelling over the years. So some of his points need a bit more clarification.

    First, data visualization is not data storytelling. On that we agree. Data visualization however, whether simple or complex, helps us make sense of data, but rarely generates insights that stimulate action.

    Schooling Was for the Industrial Era, Unschooling Is for the Future
    See on Scoop.it - Learning Futures

    The trouble is that we have left the Industrial Era for the Imagination Age, but our mass education system remains fully entrenched in factory-style schooling. By many accounts, mass schooling has become even more restrictive than it was a century ago, consuming more of childhood and adolescence than at any time in our history. The first compulsory schooling statute, passed in Massachusetts in 1852, required eight to 14-year-olds to attend school a mere 12 weeks a year, six of which were to be consecutive. This seems almost laughable compared to the childhood behemoth that mass schooling has now become.

    Enclosing children in increasingly restrictive schooling environments for most of their formative years, and drilling them with a standardized, test-driven curriculum is woefully inadequate for the Imagination Age. In her book, Now You See It, Cathy Davidson says that 65 percent of children now entering elementary school will work at jobs in the future that have not yet been invented. She writes: “In this time of massive change, we’re giving our kids the tests and lesson plans designed for their great-great-grandparents.”

    The Most Terrifying Video You'll Ever See
    A new way to think about the climate change debate, with over 13 million total views on various postings. Intrigued? Check out the related material: 1) “HOW IT ALL ENDS”: An exhaustively detailed follow-up series addressing every criticism I could find to “The Most Terrifying Video You’ll Ever See”. Playlist is at http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=92EE5DBE2987982F 2) “WHAT’S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN?”: An even more exhaustively developed book giving instruction on how to come up with an answer based on your own values and experience. It doesn’t tell you *what* to think about climate change. It tells you *how* to think about climate change. Available on Amazon. Trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7e10ZNpogv4 3) “DO YOU DARE THE DRAGON?” A 3-minute animation of the precautionary principle applied to climate change. Way simpler than it sounds. Perfectly bite-sized for forwarding to friends on social media! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdbeg7mS-CU -----------More details on the above:------------ 1) “HOW IT ALL ENDS”: I spent months combing through literally tens of thousands of critical comments to find every single objection, criticism, "Yeah but," and "You missed a spot" that I could to “The Most Terrifying Video You’ll Ever See.” A bruisingly thorough 7-hour video project, anchored by the video “How It All Ends,” which incorporates the arguments from this video, while addressing a logical hole big enough to drive a truck through that this video missed. Playlist is at http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=92EE5DBE2987982F 2) “WHAT’S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN? A RATIONAL RESPONSE TO THE CLIMATE CHANGE DEBATE,” book by Greg Craven (me). A book on climate change, unique in the genre. It’s not really about climate change--it’s really about how you go about making a decision in a confusing situation (here, the debate about climate change). Available on Amazon. Praise for the book: "This book trumps most of our accounts of the global warming crisis." --author Bill McKibben "Al Gore should share his Nobel peace prize." -The "New Scientist" "...superbly crafted...A must read." -Gen. Anthony Zinni, US CENTCOM Commander (Ret.) "This is a tremendous book and well worth anyone's time to read.... You're in for a treat—Craven is funny as well as exceptionally clear, and wise." --Kim Stanley Robinson, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Mars Trilogy and Science in the Capital "This is a terrifically thoughtful book.... Cravens book shines an illuminating floodlight on how we think about global warming." --Ross Gelbspan, author, "The Heat Is On" and "Boiling Point" 3) “DO YOU DARE THE DRAGON?” A collaboration with Rupert Read of the University of East Anglia. A fun, succinct little animation on how to make a decision about what (if anything) to do about climate change if you’re not sure whether it’s going to happen or not. Designed to help break the logjam in the popular debate about climate change. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdbeg7mS-CU

    Reg Whiteman - Fat Cat Tribute
    Reg Whiteman - the life and soul behind children's favourite Fat Cat for several decades - died in Perth on Thursday July 28, 2011, aged 82. He had been in poor health for some time. Early in his career Reg was a dancer and inaugural member of the WA Ballet Company, along with Kevan Johnston. Then he was the stage manager at His Majesty's Theatre and took pride in dressing many of stars, such as Rudolf Nureyev and Barry Humphries, who was performing as Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson. Reg performed on the TVW Channel 7 opening night variety show called Spotlight on Friday October 16th, 1959, as part of the dancing team called Guy and Dolls. This act consisted of Dorothy and Bert Shaw and Judy Schonell with Reg Whiteman. Reg was also part of a Spanish theme dance group on the opening night of ABW Channel 2 on Saturday 7th May, 1960. When Seven brought Humphrey B. Bear to Perth, it was Reg who animated him for a series of local children's shows presented by Carolyn Noble. When Seven became involved in Disney on Parade and a number of other large scale arena and tent productions, it was Reg who stepped into the breach to animate a variety of popular Disney characters. Percy Penguin was the popular TVW children's mascot during the last of the black and white TV era. It was then decided to introduce a new character full of colour and Fat Cat came into being. Though management and production staff came up with the notion, it was Judith Byrne who came up with the concept of what Fat Cat would look like. Judith is the wife of former TVW sales manager and managing director Greg Byrne. In our accompanying video, Sandy Baker describes the events which led up to the launch of Fat Cat on Perth TV screens. At his audition for the role, Reg explained that when he put on the suit, he was unable to see. He wished to show them his best dance moves, but they had positioned him in a studio set full of obstacles, a fence, posts, etc. He said that in the process, he collided with everything, tripping and falling over, which everyone seemed to find most amusing, so he got the job. Keith Geary spent many years as a producer and presenter of children's TV programs at Seven. Keith explained to Pam Casellas that Reg was very dedicated to his job. He elaborates on this subject in the video, saying that Reg did not shy away from a challenge, whether it be skiing, hot-air ballooning or paragliding in the Fat Cat costume. Parents relied on Fat Cat to get their children to bed when he wished them goodnight at 7.30pm on Seven.

    Thief Behind the Mask
    CR Avery takes a poetic look at the masterminds of climate crimes; five minutes that could change everything. With riveting spoken word and striking images, CR Avery connects the dots between pipelines, oil tankers and climate change. He is unsparing in speaking truth to power about the companies leading us down the path toward climate catastrophe and the movement building against them. Enbridge and Enron child Kinder Morgan propose to build pipelines across British Columbia from the tar sands of northern Alberta, and ship the world's dirtiest oil to Asia and the US, putting the west coast of North America at risk of oil spills. These pipelines would drive expansion of the tar sands and spike the impacts of global warming everywhere. Produced by Sierra Club BC and filmed by Ethan Miller (http://www.ethanmillerproductions.com), the video inspires us to think courageously about the future we want, for Canada's west coast and the planet.

    The Council of Elders stand in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street
    Elders from Across the Nation Declare Solidarity with the Occupy Movement Veterans of America's 20th Century civil rights movement will enter the 21st Century Occupy Wall Street movement in New York, Oakland, San Francisco and Los Angeles on Sunday, November 20. Known as the "Council of Elders," they will step inside the nationwide encampments to symbolically share the torch of hope and justice and engage the Occupiers in dialogue about defining movements of the past. "We want to contribute to this intergenerational movement," says Dr. Vincent Harding, activist and writer in the civil rights movement. "We are thankful for the efforts of Occupy Wall Street to unite the 99% and bring the many gifts and great energy of millions into effective action to transform our nation." The Council of Elders is an independent group of leaders from the farm workers, sanctuary and human rights movements that shook the nation's conscience with public protests over the past 50 years. "We see Occupy Wall Street as a continuation, a deepening and expansion of the determination of the diverse peoples of our nation to transform our country into a more democratic, equitable, just, and compassionate society," excerpt from the statement of solidarity by the Council of Elders to be read at each of the Occupy encampments. By bringing their voices to the Occupy Wall Street movement, the elders are addressing a litany of social grievances, including poverty, mass incarceration, and what they call a culture of war and violence. Dolores Huerta, activist with Cesar Chavez and the farm-workers movement, believes today's conditions create bitter divisions among peoples across the United States and throughout the world. "We applaud the miraculous extent to which the Occupy initiative around the nation has been non-violent and democratic, especially in light of the weight of the systematic violence under which the great majority of people are forced to live," says Rev. James Lawson, leading theoretician, tactician and theologian of the civil rights movement. The economic crisis which sparked the Occupy Wall Street movement also motivated the veteran protesters. They cite soaring unemployment rates, home foreclosures, and inadequate health care as issues that require public outcries. The Council of Elders promotes compassion and non-violent action as the highest values to reverse trends that put profits ahead of people in its quest to contribute to the much-needed movement for a more just society and a more peaceful world. The council members are urging elders from around the nation to join the Occupy Wall Street movement. In New York City on November 20th, members of the Elder Council will spend time with those encamped at Zuccoti Park, beginning at 2:30 PM. They will lead a worship service in front of the "red structure" within Zuccotti Park at 3:30 pm. Elders will then host a dialogue with Occupy Wall Street demonstrators and other interested individuals at 5pm, at 74 Trinity Place. Both events are open to the public.

    Stephen Fry Kinetic Typography - Language
    UPDATE 24/05/2011:Thankyou to @hedgehoglet for the Russian Subtitles UPDATE 11/10/2010: Thanks to Stephen Fry for mentioning this video on his twitter account, rather exciting! Follow me at @RogersCreations on twitter Using the wonderful words of acclaimed writer, actor and allround know it all (I mean that in the best of ways) Stephen Fry I have created this kinetic typography animation. If you like what you hear you can download the rest of the audio file from Mr. Fry's website. stephenfry.com and then go to the audio and video section at the top of the page and look for the file entitled language. You can also find the file on iTunes by searching the name 'Stephen Fry's Podgrams'. I loved this particular essay on language and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make my first kinetic typography video. I hope you like it and even if you dont I would like to heard what you think in the comments section. Also I know that at points the audio does not match the text so you do not have to write that. It is because I copied the transcript off of Stephen's website and it was not 100% exactly what he said and i did not notice until I was well underway. However these cases are few and far between. Just incase you were wondering the programs I used to make this were all by Adobe. Mostly After Effects but also Flash and Illustrator. Flash for the changing background colour transitions and illustrator for putting the words in to the shape of 'language' before loading it into After Effects to animate. Enjoy

    http://www.ted.com With all the intensity and brilliance he is known for, Alan Kay gives TEDsters a lesson in lessons. Kay has spent years envisioning better techniques for teaching kids. In this talk, after reminding us that "the world is not what it seems," he shows us how good programming can sharpen our picture. His unique software lets children learn by doing, but also learn by computing and by creating lessons themselves.

    Tim Minchin - White Wine In The Sun (Christmas Song)
    'White Wine In The Sun', also known as 'Christmas Song'. I put this up since a lot of people were looking for it. LYRICS: I'm looking forward to Christmas It's sentimental I know, but I just really like it I'm, I'm hardly religious I'd rather break bread with Dawkins than Desmond Tutu to be honest And yes I have all of the usual objections to consumerism The commercialisation of an ancient religion And the western-isation of a dead Palestinian Press-ganged into selling PlayStations and beer But I still really like it. I, I really like Christmas Though I'm not expecting a visit from Jesus I'll be seeing my dad My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum They'll be drinking white wine in the sun I'll be seeing my dad My sisters and brother, my gran and my mum We'll be drinking white wine in the sun. I don't go for ancient wisdom I don't believe just 'cause ideas are tenacious it means that they're worthy I get freaked out by churches Some of the hymns that they sing have nice chords But the lyrics are dodgy And yes I have all of the usual objections to the mis-education of children forced into a cult institution And taughted to externalise blame And to feel ashamed And to judge things as plain right and wrong But I quite like the songs. I'm not expecting big presents The old combination of socks, jocks and chocolate is just fine by me. 'Cause I'll be seeing my dad My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum They'll be drinking white wine in the sun I'll be seeing my dad My sisters and brothers, my gran and my mum They'll be drinking white wine in the sun. And you my baby girl My jetlagged infant daughter You'll be handed round the room Like a puppy at a primary school And you're too young to know But you will learn yourself one day That wherever you are and whatever you face These are the people who'll make you feel safe in this world My sweet blue-eyed girl And if my baby girl When you're twenty-one or thirty-one And Christmas comes around And you find yourself nine thousand miles from home You'll know whatever comes Your brother and sister, and me and your mum Will be waiting for you in the sun Girl, when Christmas comes Your brothers and sisters, your aunts and your uncles Your grandparents, cousins, and me and your mum Will be drinking white wine in the sun We'll be waiting for you in the sun Baby, whenever you come We'll be drinking white wine in the sun Waiting. I, I really like Christmas It's sentimental I know.

    The Twitter Experiment - Twitter in the Classroom
    Dr. Rankin, professor of History at UT Dallas, wanted to know how to reach more students and involve more people in class discussions both in and out of the classroom. She had heard of Twitter... She collaborated with a graduate student, Kim Smith, from the Emerging Media and Communications (EMAC) and reached out to EMAC faculty for advice. As a Graduate student in EMAC I assisted her in The Twitter Experiment and documented the project to share with others. The feedback is varied, but the lesson for me, as a student, was the importance of a professor's attitude and willingness to try new technologies in the classroom, especially a more traditional class such as History. It was a great pleasure to assist Dr. Rankin with this. I documented the experiment and used it in my digital video class with Professor Dean Terry, @therefore, and assisted Dr. Rankin in the experiment as a part of my collaboration and content creation course with Dan Langendor, @dlangendorf. It was a real pleasure to work with Dr. Rankin - a forward-thinking professor open to the intelligent use of new media.

    This film was created as the Keynote for Net Generation Education Project: http://tiny.cc/glLA7 When kids at the Suffern Middle School were asked to talk about education and their future, they gave Peggy Sheehy, the SMS media specialist, an earful. Listen and learn the bits of wisdom that can be gleaned from the students, if we only dare to ask them. Students from The Elisabeth Morrow School Tech Club contributed machinima created in Quest Atlantis. Marianne Malmstrom (aka Knowclue) worked remotely with the students of Suffern to create machinima of their avatars on Teen Second Life. Original music, "Harpsicord" was created by a former Suffern Middle School student, Larry Bordowitz. All editing was done by educators Peggy Sheehy, Suffern Middle School and Marianne Malmstrom, The Elisabeth Morrow School. *** Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike Noncommercial Nonderivative 3.0 ***

    Head Tracking for Desktop VR Displays using the WiiRemote
    Using the infrared camera in the Wii remote and a head mounted sensor bar (two IR LEDs), you can accurately track the location of your head and render view dependent images on the screen. This effectively transforms your display into a portal to a virtual environment. The display properly reacts to head and body movement as if it were a real window creating a realistic illusion of depth and space. By Johnny Chung Lee, Carnegie Mellon University.
