The Connected Educator Movement Is Failing, And We're All To Blame | - 49 views

  • the reality is that we live in a bubble that feeds our own needs. It’s sometimes very hard to see outside that bubble, and it can often be viewed as successful when you can only see the fruits of your own work. 
  • When you have received teaching strategies,  Skyped in the classroom with an author, or had someone on the other side of the world- help you in a new way, it is indescribable.
  • Actually talking to people, instead of just emailing, tweeting, or blogging seems to work much better in getting any point across.

About - Institute of Making - 28 views

  •  
    The Institute of Making is a multidisciplinary research club for those interested in the made world: from makers of molecules to makers of buildings, synthetic skin to spacecraft, soup to diamonds, socks to cities. Annual membership of the institute is available to all UCL staff and students.

    Our programme of symposia, masterclasses and public events explores the links between academic research and hands-on experience, and celebrates the sheer joy of stuff.
    Its mission is to provide all makers with a creative home in which to innovate, contemplate and understand all aspects of materials and an inspiring place to explore their relationship to making.

    At the heart of the Institute of Making is the Materials Library - a growing repository of some of the most extraordinary materials on earth, gathered together for their ability to fire the imagination and advance conceptualisation. A place in which makers from all disciplines can see, touch, research and discuss, so that they can apply the knowledge and experience gained to their own practice.

    Alongside the collection is the MakeSpace - a workshop where members and guests can make, break, design and combine both advanced and traditional tools, techniques and materials."

    I am a passionate philosopher searching for meaning and greater understanding in a world where these topics are overlooked - only ever finding the absurd. Take a seat, relax, and let us discuss the most important topics of human existence.
