Why It's Time to Eliminate Class Schedules - Education - GOOD - 0 views

  • What if we removed the passive course-to-course drudgery of the school day? What if there was no schedule?
  • What if teachers were seen as mentors for projects designed to help students meet those benchmarks?
  • What if the students initiated these projects and the teachers spent their time recording TED-style talks that would serve as inspiration and help students generate benchmark-related ideas?

  • If students spent their time producing authentic projects instead of driving toward test scores, it would provide tangible measurement of what they can do, and the tug-of-war over the meaning of grades would end. But as long as we keep the current way classes are scheduled, we will continue claiming that we just don’t have time for learning.

      I think there is growing support for this type of approach to learning/teaching. For me it is a pleasant vision to move from high stakes testing - to more continual process based learning. I see a big role here for gaming mechanic design principles. Good scan hit..

How Community Design Advocates Can Be a Force for Design Justice - 0 views

  • Currently, Colloqate is working with community design advocates on Midland Library in Portland and restorative justice space in Dallas.
  • The project in Dallas, which deals with a former jail, allows us to think about restorative justice through the lens of those who have been most harmed by that space. We were able to hire CDAs that were formerly incarcerated and hire others who were part of the broader network of the city and they were working together to ask questions of their own specific communities,
  • Design as Protest (DAP) began as a yearlong organizing effort, involving 250 design professionals and design advocates across the United States and Canada. They examined how injustice can be challenged through the built environment. Issues such as ending the prison industrial complex, defunding and reallocating the police, and advocating against architecture projects that are hostile to communities of color.

  • The Black Panthers talked about removing capitalist intentions within communities which are the standard tropes around what gentrification is and what it means for capital to come into a neighborhood and wash away cultural institutions. The ethos of design justice is simply that for every injustice in this world there is an architecture, a plan, a design, that’s been built to sustain that injustice, and for so much of our work power is vested in land.”
    Community Design Associates are not only asked to talk about design, but also about their own experiences and the nuances that get missed in public consultations where the project is set and residents can only ask questions or give opinions.

STANFORD: Robotic block party puts new high-tech creations on... | - 0 views

    I went to this great open house yesterday on campus, "Robot Block Party." Everything from the Nasa robotics team to amateur tinkerers frankensteining robots in their backyards. A couple people from the Exhibits team at the Cal Academy showed a kinect-powered robot they had been tinkering with as a side project, where - their idea - would be to put the robot (with a camera) on the roof, and you'd be able to "drive" it using the kinect inside the museum. And of course, there was the self-driving race car, complete with the ubiquitous Stanford parking sticker.

The future museum and the future school at newlearningonline - 0 views

  • A team of researchers across Europe is conducting an experiment to bring the museum into the school using virtual reality technology.
  • CONNECT project
  • The CONNECT project team believes that by linking the classroom with science centres, museums, planetariums and observatories, it can marry the best elements of formal curricula with informal learning.
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Heads covered by virtual-reality visors,
  • link four science centres with participating classrooms in each country.
  • demanding technical challenges. A museum needs a series of access points around the various exhibits, for example, so students can really ‘visit’ the museum instead of watching a series of presentations. ‘In some museums that’s easy because there are high ceilings to fix the access points, in others it’s quite a challenge,’ explains Sotiriou …
  • In its software, CONNECT has produced a stunning virtual museum, featuring colourful, exciting graphics that allow a student to try experiments and then view the results. This advanced learning environment is called the CONNECT Virtual Science Thematic Park –

A Future Full of Badges - Commentary - The Chronicle of Higher Education - 2 views

    What is a digital badge, exactly? The MacArthur foundation says it's "a validated indicator of accomplishment, skill, quality or interest," Students will be able to customize learning goals within the larger curricular framework, integrate continuing peer and faculty feedback about their progress toward achieving those goals, and tailor the way badges and the metadata within them are displayed to the outside world. Students won't just earn badges-they'll build them, in an act of continuous learning.
    We actually were intrigued by the badges concept for the LF project and considered applying for the grant through the Digital Media & Learning Competition. But we felt we had our hands full with the project at this time - perhaps in the future?

    Gets to the human context at ~13:30 mins. Great illustration of how to make meaning from the seemingly meaningless, or at least from data that we don't usually connect to our daily experience.
