Takahiro Yamamoto2,714,412We'll finish our 366 project in several days! Are you happy about it? Or are you sad? Anyway, who not celebrate the fact that we're completing our missions! You can share two shots this time. *Please remember just two images!* 1) Your best or most favorite shot you took in the fourth quarter of 2012 (October- December). Add #Bestof4Q12Creative366  in the comment section after you post the image! 2) Your best or most favorite shot you took for the project this year. Add #BestofCreative366Project  in the comment section after you post the image! If you think those two tags are too complicated, forget them and just two of your images! But please add your comment in the comment section after you have posted them. *And if you are the one who failed to complete the mission and are thinking you are going to do it again next year, you can add your fav one you took for the project here!* One last thing: I have made this event "public." I might have missed inviting those who are participating this +Creative 366 Project, so if you know anyone who isn't here but is doing his/her project, please invite them! 366プロジェクトもあと数日で終わりです。うれしいですか。それとも、悲しい? どちらにしても、長かったミッションの終わりを皆で祝いましょう! 今回は写真を2枚シェアしてください。 *2枚だけです!* 1.10月~12月にプロジェクト用に撮った写真から、お気に入りの写真かベストの写真を1枚選んで投稿してください。 #Bestof4Q12Creative366  のタグを投稿後にコメント欄に入れてください。 2.プロジェクトのために撮った写真から、今年のベスト(もしくはお気に入り)! の写真を1枚選んで投稿して下さい。  #BestofCreative366Project  をタグとします。 タグが面倒なら、ただ2枚を選んで投稿してくださるだけで結構です。写真のコメント欄に、その写真の思い出などを書き添えていただけるとうれしいです。 そして、このプロジェクトに参加したのに途中で挫折した!来年こそは!という方も、ぜひこのイベントにご参加ください。挫折するまでに撮った写真をシェアしていただければ結構です。もちろん、来年への抱負も添えてくださいね!The Best of Your 3662012-12-30 16:00:0088

Peter Vogel44,633My circle of educators who post about information technology from an education perspectiveSomeone asked me earlier today if they could have access to this circle of about 450 educators. For some reason a private sharing didn't work for him so I am sharing the circle publicly. Perhaps it will be of use to some others as well.The circle isn't perfect. There are sure to be some dormant accounts in it but that should be more than made up by the many devoted G-plussers you will find here.2014-11-14 04:49:17455003

Peter Vogel44,233Sharing a circle of terrific ICT educatorsHere in British Columbia we are about to head back to school. What better time to share this circle of people who share their expertise in Information and Communications Technology or Educational Technology if you prefer another label.I've been a Google+ user since day 1 and in fact I began using it, appropriately enough, while on a three-week stay at the birthplace of the World Wide Web, CERN, perhaps better known as the home of the Large Hadron Collider. I began building this circle of plussers while there. Now I must admit I haven't been good about culling dormant accounts of late so don't expect everyone in the circle to be a gem.Also, if you happen across this post and circle and wish to be included (on the basis outlined above) just send me a note.  2014-08-29 22:11:48451101

Stephanie Calahan842FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 2 of 4My goal was to crowdsource a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and #Gratitude, I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1311 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+ #womenongplus #womenonline #womenongoogleplus #women #activeusers #activedirectory #activeengagers #fabfems #googleplusengagers #femalesongoogleplus #female 2013-05-09 17:30:57362361135

Hands-On with Google Cardboard Virtual Reality Kit

(In case you missed this when it came out in June 2014...looks like a good team-building exercise :)

Google surprised everyone at its I/O conference by giving out Cardboard, a cardboard-craft kit to make virtual reality goggles when paired with a Nexus 5 smartphone. We got our hands on a this experimental kit, assemble it, and test out Google's vision for low-cost VR.

Teaching Practices Inventory
http://www.cwsei.ubc.ca/resources/TeachingPracticesInventory.htm

Here’s a great resource: the Teaching Practices Inventory. It’s an inventory that lists and scores the extent to which research-based teaching practices are being used. It’s been developed for use in math and science courses, but researchers Carl Wieman and Sarah Gilbert suggest it can be used in engineering and social sciences courses, although they have not tested it there.

The inventory takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete (53% of the research cohort took it in 10 minutes or less) and is designed for use by individual faculty. It is a self-report inventory, with the power to promote a comprehensive review of and reflection on teaching practices. Inventory items are organized into eight categories:

Designing Technology and Pedagogy to Promote 21st Century Literacies in the Humanities
https://vimeo.com/112329700

A talk by Brian Johnsrud (Stanford) and Emily Schneider (Stanford) at the Digital Humanities Focal Group

"We've been told time and again: the information landscape is shifting, creating new ways of interacting with multimedia, sprawling archives, and digital, participatory cultures. These changes are (slowly) being echoed in the humanities classroom, as reading digitally, communicating online, and analyzing interactive, multimedia artifacts are being integrated into existing practices traditionally valued in the humanities.

"We've been told time and again: the information landscape is shifting, creating new ways of interacting with multimedia, sprawling archives, and digital, participatory cultures. These changes are (slowly) being echoed in the humanities classroom, as reading digitally, communicating online, and analyzing interactive, multimedia artifacts are being integrated into existing practices traditionally valued in the humanities.

In this talk, Brian Johnsrud and Emily Schneider will share their research on how traditional humanistic practices can be enlivened and extended with new digital tools and objects of analysis. The key questions inherent to this research include: What kinds of "21 st century literacies" are required for productive engagement with new media and learning practices,both in and outside of classrooms? And how might courses in the humanities support students in developing these literacies?

Lacuna Stories, a digital reading and writing platform currently being developed in the Poetic Media Lab, takes on this challenge by merging academic texts and media with the interactive affordances of the Web. This talk will give an overview of"21st century literacies," discuss their connection to the overall learning goals of the humanities, and showcase several "old"and "new" literacies that Lacuna Stories is designed to support."___

The Art of Tinkering: Loose Parts, Danger and Self-Directed Learning
Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich, Exploratorium
April 18, 2014
Learn more: http://goo.gl/Vmhu03
http://www.exploratorium.edu

At the Exploratorium we see tinkering as a serious endeavor; at its most basic -- a process that marries play and inquiry. When you're tinkering, you're trying something that you don't quite know how to do -- guided by whim, imagination and curiosity. You're not following step-by-step directions and the outcome isn't predetermined. You're attempting to figure out how things work and often reworking them.

We see tinkering as a practice that evolves over time, resulting in a disposition that allows you to fully engage with the world around you -- an ability that we think will be essential for the next generation. In the Tinkering Studio we attempt... more »

We see tinkering as a practice that evolves over time, resulting in a disposition that allows you to fully engage with the world around you -- an ability that we think will be essential for the next generation. In the Tinkering Studio we attempt to design specifically for tinkerability, offering visitors to the museum an opportunity to author their own ideas as they engage with art, science and technology. We'll share some of the insights we've had working this way in the physical world that we think might relate to the digital one as well. We'll also highlight some of our design principles and discuss dimensions of learning we see in an environment like this.

This seminar series features dynamic professionals sharing their industry experience and cutting edge research within the human-computer interaction (HCI) field. Each week, a unique collection of technologists, artists, designers, and activists will discuss a wide range of current and evolving topics pertaining to HCI. ___

Sensemaking Wayfinding Information Model (SWIM)
George Siemens

How learners make sense of complex information in individual and social processes.

How we engage in information and social experiences and how we try to make sense of that through a range of personal learning habits and techniques.

Individual
Take initiative - internal locus of control 
Key activity - individual engages in course, creates and shares artifacts 
brings some level of social capital and social involvement 

1. Course Structure (Navigation)
     - Learning how to navigate spaces
          know where different pieces and places are (e.g., blog, twitter, FB, new tools, LMS, MOOC platform)

     -Wayfinding Activitiy
          Where are the pieces, where do I need to be?

1. Course Structure (Navigation)
     - Learning how to navigate spaces
          know where different pieces and places are (e.g., blog, twitter, FB, new tools, LMS, MOOC platform)

     -Wayfinding Activitiy
          Where are the pieces, where do I need to be?

     -Distributed Courses
          Jot down different elements and how connected 
          Helps in conceptually understanding the landscape 
          Articulate key landmark elements - then can see self in relation to other activities 

2. Course Content (Scope of Knowledge Domain)
     - Expecting greater participatory activity on the part of learner 
     - not relying only on faculty member to provide content 

Identity Formation

Information
Interacting around info - from peers, from what we’re providing in the form of artifacts, through information external instructor or guest presenter share, content from instructors

Technology as S/W Agent
Sensemaking/Wayfinding role of tech (e.g, gdocs - build bibliography, glossary, Evernote - collect key ideas, personal notes)
Role of tech in this experience- enables us to make our way effectively and to build our identity and to interact with info meaningfully 

Contextualizing
Recognize how info and identity formation is contextually connected is critical 

Sense Giving
Make sense of a topic area. Understand how ideas connect and relate. Start to share with others. Post in discussion forum or blog. Opportunity to sense give based on activities involved in…happens in social space 
      
Negotiation

Debated..is this a critical element or not? 

Not all info socially navigated, not all knowledge socially constructed 
Happening more in a digital participatory setting 
Technologies we use for making sense of complex info has a greater and greater social component 

Activities Learners Can Engage In

Self-organization & sub-networks
     - Be involved in a space where you’re more comfortable 
     - Create that space and invite others to join      

Sensegiving through artifact creation & sharing
    - Involved in creating and sharing artifacts 
    - Help others better understand how you see a topic or an area 
    - Often novices who have just learned an idea are better able to communicate it to peers than experts 

Sensemaking/giving through language games
     - Process of negotiation - normalize or harmonize understanding of particular terms 
     - Try to make sense of languange - share perspective in a more meaningful way 

Knowledge domain expansion
Learning in a complex info setting is as much about creating and generating new knowledge as it is about duplicating what’s already there. Important to be involved in process of continually pushing boundary of how we understand the topic area. 

Wayfinding cues, symbols
    - How we understand where we are in relation to where we want to be in a course
    - Can be cues that we learn to understand ourselves - jot down parts of course and as it progresses how found parts are connected 

Social Organization through creating sharing
Getting involved - Opportunity to shape the thinking of others through the artifacts that we share and have our thinking shaped as we engage directly with others through this language process___

Wayfinding & Sensemaking

…there are multiple places where learning is happening and multiple places where conversations are happening. It takes a bit of time to get used to that and a bit of time to get comfortable with those multiple-spaced interactions.

Here's some help for making sense of what's happening and finding your way through the course:

1. Visual Syllabus 
...essential landing page that'll let you know what's happening and where the different parts of the course exist. goo.gl/NxFGkF

- What are the tags?
- What are the different groups in Facebook?
- Where to find content that's being shared outside of the core edX platform?

2. Daily Email
…summary of what happens in social media. We're not pulling the content out of edX, but the discussions are happening on Twitter, and they're happening on different blogs, those will be sent in a daily e-mail, so you'll get a sense of how the distributive conversation in the course is unfolding.

3. Weekly Sessions
Live weekly hang out sessions will be recorded ….where you have an opportunity to ask questions of instructors, or to provide any comments or opinions or concerned that you might have related to the course. http://goo.gl/gl6SJk

4. edX Forum
Opportunity to engage in edX forum. http://goo.gl/jCseYI


Learning Opportunities

Teaching team focuses on introducing some broad ideas (along with providing learning materials, resources and tools) and then encourages peer learning activities and learners engaging with each other, as well as providing back to the learning space.

…learners are also connected to a range of other opportunities,and these are peripheral learners, individuals that are partially involved in the course, they might be following the course peripherally through the use of Twitter or social media, following a hash tag, contributing resources, they might engage in social bookmarking services just for sharing resources ,tools…

Knowledge as a network property, combinatorial creativity

...you're going to be asked to create an artifact, and that artifact could be a blog post, it could be a visualization of data, it could be a complex problem that we're asking you to understand through a variety of different data or analytics methods, and then, essentially, to share that back to other course members, who then, in turn, take that, build on it and keep innovating. And it's this general idea of combinatorial creativity, where we're focused on creating new things.

Importance of Owning Your Own Learning Space

...rather than contributing to a course where you put a comment in a discussion forum and that comment is gone, you lose that contribution, or if you create artifacts that get uploaded, there isn't an opportunity for the community or for other learners in the course to benefit  from your contribution, we want to emphasize the value of owning your learning space. What it means instead is that important things that you create, and it could be an image, it could be a concept map, it could be a script that you've written, but something that you want others to be aware of, rather than just sharing it back to the instructor in the course, who want you to share it with each other so that in the spirit of combinatorial creativity, others can take those ideas and improve them.

A key activity, for you as a learner in this course, is to create things and share them, and then to take what others have done, revise them, remix them, and them share them back into this space. And so it's really this iterative process that essentially is what happens in science or any area of scientific inquiry.

Focus on Distributive Conversations

We're trying to emphasize that regardless of where you participate, if it's on a blog, if it's in a learning management system, or edX if you're involved in the discussion forums, bookmarking sites, Twitter, and so on, we essentially want to focus on conversations that happen wherever they do, being able to aggregate those conversations, which is something that we'll attempt to do in the form of a daily e-mail that will give you an overview of what's happened in the course.___

Santa Clara U Students Get Mobile Lab for Controlling Satellites

There are few institutions in the country better equipped to help students learn the space business than Santa Clara University, which has seen its satellites go into space since 2000. The Robotics Systems Laboratory, part of the university's School of Engineering, has designed and constructed numerous satellites that have been launched into space on NASA and private rockets. The satellites are small —  some as compact as an iPhone — and intended to gather data for discrete experiments.

...mobile lab will also take to the road to show students in K-12 what's involved in controlling satellites and running space missions.

"This is one great example of our 'Engineering with a Mission' goal," noted Engineering Dean Godfrey Mungal. "These students not only will get hands-on experience and help run experiments that could better society, but also they'll communicate that experience and inspire the next generation of great engineers."

Dietary Flavanols Reverse Age-Related Memory Decline!

A study led by CUMC (Columbia University Medical Center) scientists found that dietary cocoa flavanols -- naturally occurring bioactives found in cocoa -- reversed age-related memory decline in healthy older adults.

The study provides the first direct evidence that one component of age-related memory decline is caused by changes in a specific brain region and that this form of memory decline can be improved by a dietary intervention.

As people age, they generally show some decline in cognitive abilities, including learning and remembering things like where they place their belongings and the names of new acquaintances. This normal age-related memory decline starts in early adulthood but doesn't usually have a noticeable impact on quality of life until people reach their 50s or 60s.

As people age, they generally show some decline in cognitive abilities, including learning and remembering things like where they place their belongings and the names of new acquaintances. This normal age-related memory decline starts in early adulthood but doesn't usually have a noticeable impact on quality of life until people reach their 50s or 60s. Age-related memory decline is different from the memory impairment that occurs with Alzheimer's.

Previous studies have shown age-related memory decline is associated with changes in the dentate gyrus part of the brain. But until now, the evidence in humans showed only a correlational link (not a causal link). To see if the dentate gyrus is the source of age-related memory decline in humans, the scientists tested whether cocoa flavanols can improve the function of this brain region and improve memory.

Flavanols (not be confused with flavonols) are also found in tea leaves and in certain fruits and vegetables, but vary widely in the overall amounts as well as the specific forms and mixtures.

Douglas Engelbart: The Mother of All Demos

On December 9, 1968, Douglas C. Engelbart and the group of 17 researchers working with him in the Augmentation Research Center at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, CA, presented a 90-minute live public demonstration of the online system, NLS, they had been working on since 1962. The public presentation was a session in the of the Fall Joint Computer Conference held at the Convention Center in San Francisco, and it was attended by about 1,000 computer professionals. This was the public debut of the computer mouse. But the mouse was only one of many innovations demonstrated that day, including hypertext, object addressing and dynamic file linking, as well as shared-screen collaboration involving two persons at different sites communicating over a network with audio and video interface.

2. Empower your team and don't micro-manage

    * Balance giving freedom to your employees while still being available for advice
    * Make "stretch" assignments to help them tackle big problems

3.  Express interest in employees' success and well-being

    * Get to know your employees as people, with lives outside of work
    * Make new folks feel welcome, help ease the transition

4.  Be productive and results-oriented

    * Focus on what you want the team to achieve and how employees can help achieve it
    * Help the team prioritize work, and make decisions to remove roadblocks

5.  Be a good communicator and listen to your team

    * Communication is two-way: Both listen and share
    * Hold all-hands meetings and be specific about the team's goals
    * Encourage open dialogue and listen to the questions and concerns of your employees

6.  Help your employees with career development

7.  Have a clear vision and strategy for the team

     * Even amid turmoil, keep the team focused on goals and strategy
     * Involve the team in setting and evolving the team's vision, goals, and progress

8.  Have key technical skills, so you can help advise the team

    * Roll up sleeves and work side-by-side with team, when needed
    * Understand the specific challenges of the work 

THREE PITFALLS

1.  Have trouble making transition to team leader

    * Fantastic individual performers are often promoted to manager without the necessary skills to lead
    * People hired from outside often don't understand the specific ways of the company

2.  Lack a consistent approach to performance management and career development

    * Doesn't help employees understand what company wants
    * Doesn't coach employees on how they can develop and stretch
    * Not proactive: Waits for the employees to come to them

3.  Spend too little time on managing and communicating___

The Quest to Put More Reality in Virtual Reality

What sets High Fidelity apart from Linden Lab and other virtual-reality startups past and present is the new interface technology the company is using to make interactions with people inside its virtual world more like real life.

_When people get together in High Fidelity’s virtual space, like this club, their avatars can mirror their real-life facial expressions.
Using 3-D cameras so that your avatar copies your facial expressions is one technique (such cameras will be standard in many laptops beginning next year; see “Intel Says Laptops and Tablets with 3-D Vision Are Coming Soon”). The company is also experimenting with sensors that capture the motion of a person’s arms and hands. Some attach to the body or are held in your hands.

The company is also experimenting with sensors that capture the motion of a person’s arms and hands. Some attach to the body or are held in your hands. Others, like the Leap Motion sensor attached to the Oculus headset I wore, track hands and fingers from a distance. “We want you to interact with other people in an emotionally normal way,” says Rosedale._

Jeremy Bailenson, who leads Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction lab, says that approach breaks new ground. Communication in virtual worlds has long been limited, he says, by a gap between how realistic an avatar could look and how realistically it could behave.

“Second Life had fairly realistic faces, but there was no to way to control them,” he says. “High Fidelity has solved that problem.” When he recently tried Rosedale’s technology, “the experience I got was ‘It really feels like there’s another person here,’” Bailenson says.___

How Magic Leap Works

Magic Leap’s patents suggest an alternative approach. They describe displays that can create the same kind of 3-D patterns of light rays, known as “light fields,” that our eyes take in from the real objects around us. Wetzstein and other researchers have shown that this allows your eyes to focus on the depths of an artificial 3-D scene just as they would in the real world—providing a far more realistic illusion of virtual objects merged with the real world.

One of Magic Leap’s patents describes how such a device, dubbed a WRAP, for “waveguide reflector array projector,” would operate.

Material Design

Design is the art of considered creation. Our goal is to satisfy the diverse spectrum of human needs. As those needs evolve, so too must our designs, practices, and philosophies. We challenged ourselves to create a visual language for our users that synthesizes the classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science.

A material metaphor is the unifying theory of a rationalized space and a system of motion. Our material is grounded in tactile reality, inspired by our study of paper and ink, yet open to imagination and magic.

This is material design.

Dan Meyer's Take on PhotoMath App

But we should wish PhotoMath abundant success – perfect character recognition and downloads on every student’s smartphone. Because the only problems PhotoMath could conceivably solve are the ones that are boring and over-represented in our math textbooks.

It’s conceivable PhotoMath could be great for problems with verbs like “compute,” “solve,” and “evaluate.” In some alternate universe where technology didn’t disappoint and PhotoMath worked perfectly, all the most fun verbs would then be left behind: “justify,” “argue,” “model,” “generalize,” “estimate,” “construct,” etc. In that alternate universe, we could quickly evaluate the value of our assignments:

“Could PhotoMath solve this? Then why are we wasting our time?”

Metaio Unveils 3D Sensor Support for Augmented Reality

Metaio Announces 3D Sensor support in SDK 6.0: The award winning Metaio technology will now support RGB+D sensors for added depth information, taking Augmented Reality experiences to the next level.

This video demonstrates the advanced Augmented Reality capabilities of devices enhanced with depth-sensing camera: the new Structure Sensor from Occipital. You will see how added 3D sensors make Augmented Reality much more powerful by virtually eliminating the need for markers in many use cases, and even more importantly, solving the “occlusion” problem where virtual data is not correctly rendered into the real environment in a natural way.

...Abovitz, for his part, says that Magic Leap isn’t like Oculus, in that it’s not truly a VR experience. Nor is it an augmented reality situation, he claims, since it goes well beyond that and provides truly integrated, 3D digital objects that looks as though they were physical objects, alongside the real world. He likens Magic Leap compared to other AR-type tech to a situation whereby, if you’d come to see the Wright Brothers fly their original airplane in 1903, only to learn that someone else was building a jet in the next hangar over.
