    Blue The Film: Early Learning - Cool Australia
    See on Scoop.it - Curtin Global Challenges Teaching Resources

    Blue is a feature documentary film charting the drastic decline in the health of our oceans. With more than half of all marine life lost and the expansion of the industrialization of the seas, the film sets out the challenges we are facing and the opportunities for positive change. Blue changes the way we think about our liquid world and inspires the audience to action. Along with the film is an ambitious global campaign to create advocacy and behaviour change through the #oceanguardian movement. To watch the film and become an ocean guardian, see the website.

    Cool Australia and Northern Pictures would like to acknowledge the generous contributions of GoodPitch² Australia, Shark Island Institute, Documentary Australia Foundation, The Caledonia Foundation and Screen Australia in the development of these teaching resources.

    There's a New Quantum Material That Mimics Human Brains in an Unexpected Way
    See on Scoop.it - Data Science and Computational Thinking [inc Big Data and Internet of Things]

    Scientists have discovered a quantum material that could represent the future of artificial intelligence – not because it retains vast amounts of data, but precisely because it doesn’t.

    The human brain is often singled out as being the most complex and powerful computer that scientists know of, and one of the mechanisms that enables this complexity is our ability to forget things – a phenomenon that can be mimicked in a material called samarium nickelate.

    “The brain has limited capacity, and it can only function efficiently because it is able to forget,” says one of the researchers, nanoscientist Subramanian Sankaranarayanan from the US Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory (ANL).

    “It’s hard to create a non-living material that shows a pattern resembling a kind of forgetfulness, but the specific material we were working with can actually mimic that kind of behaviour.”

    12 October 2017 – At 18 months-old, Sophia cannot walk, but she can understand speech and, at United Nations Headquarters in New York, participate in panel discussion and respond to questions using her artificial intelligence (AI).

    Sophia is a robot. A ‘social’ robot, according to her creator, the CEO of Hanson Robotics, David Hanson, which means that she was designed to form relationships.

    “Robots like Sophia will come into people’s lives more through high-end applications, so she can be used for education. She could help in factories. She could help in search and rescue […] she can go in to comfort someone who is hurt,” Mr. Hanson told UN News in an interview on Wednesday after both were panellists at a UN meeting on ‘the future of everything,’technological change and development.

    Circuit Blocks exist in many different forms throughout museums around the world.  A circuit block is a set of components, switches and power sources that can be tethered together to allow people to explore electricity in a safe and easy manner.  We have been building and facilitating circuit exploration for the past several years at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.  Circuit Blocks have become a staple activity in MAKESHOP.  We don’t buy our circuit blocks from some special museum store.  We make them ourselves.  All of the Teaching Artists in MAKESHOP have their own distinct style of circuit block; some are more refined than others.  All of the Circuit Blocks start with the same set of tools and materials.  The following instructions will give you a general idea of how to create a simple power source block and a component block.

    "How to Revolutionize the University" – Cathy N. Davidson on #NewEducation at Duke University - Video
    See on Scoop.it - Learning Futures

    In her latest book, “The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux,” educational innovator Cathy N. Davidson (Duke’s former Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies) argues that the American university is stuck in the past–and shows how we can revolutionize it to prepare students for our age of constant change. Our current system of higher education dates to the period from 1865 to 1925, when the nation’s new universities created grades and departments, majors and minors, graduate and professional schools in an attempt to prepare young people for a world transformed by the telegraph and the Model T.

    Is going to university really worth it?

    See on Scoop.it - Learning Futures

    For prospective students, a key argument for university study is its presumed positive effect on wages over a lifetime.

    Andreas Schleicher, director for education and skills at the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, says that figure is quite large in Australia.

    “You get about $300,000 in earnings more than those who do not study,” he says.

    There’s also a benefit for taxpayers.

    “Better educated people pay more taxes, incur lower social costs — it’s a good investment,” Mr Schleicher says.

    Automation – Future Proofing Careers | LinkedIn

    Automation is real. It is here to stay. Jobs will be lost. Careers will disappear. People are fearful, if not for their own occupation, for someone close to him or her. Interestingly, only 7% feel that their own job will be effected. In addition, Pollyanna analysts say that automation will actually increase the number of good, well-paid, full-time jobs – tell that to the tens of thousands of auto workers who all decided to take early retirement (or maybe they were simply redundant) 30 – 40 years ago when robots were introduced to the assembly lines.

    We are told, and recent experience bears this out, that a large segment of incoming university students will be working at a job that hasn’t been invented yet. We can all assure our graduates that they will be saved by the information age. Except that the information age didn’t work out quite as planned – everyone (developed and developing countries alike) has a degree, and in the networked world we live in, information age jobs go to the lowest bidder, regardless of where he or she lives.

    Weighing up lab-grown steak: the problems with eating meat are not Silicon Valley's to solve

    A new techno bubble is inflating above the meadows of Silicon Valley: lab-grown meat, which plays a major part in what’s being called cellular agriculture (CA).

    Based on a seductive story of providing food with zero consequences, CA promises to get rid of the ethical, environmental and health costs of animal husbandry. How? By growing animal products without the animal and its body.

    This movement is very much aligned with the inflated rhetoric of the innovation economy. Hundreds of millions of dollars are being sunk into the promise of CA. People like Sergey Brin, Bill Gates, Peter Thiel and other venture capitalists are reportedly among notable investors.

    But does this techno-capitalist mindset really fit our food system?

    In my view, these initiatives are aimed at prolonging the West’s excessive consumption of meat, rather than genuine attempts to deal with the problems they claim to solve.

    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. Council of Elders Organizing Committee Rev. James Lawson, Jr. Los Angeles, CA Dr. Vincent G. Harding Denver, CO Rev.

Now he explores stats in a way he has never done before - using augmented reality animation. In this spectacular section of 'The Joy of Stats' he tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers - in just four minutes. Plotting life expectancy against income for every country since 1810, Hans shows how the world we live in is radically different from the world most of us imagine.

    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

    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.

    No Future Left Behind
    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 ***

    The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler's high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros' Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century. Anyone is free to use this video for educational purposes.

    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.
