Mick Fealty14,283Please join us and our panel for a vigorous discussion on what the newly launched Northern Ireland Open Government Network.  Guest speakers include John Barry of Queens University Belfast, Tim Hughes of Involve, and Matilda Murday of Democratic Society.  We'll also be joined by Peter Osborne and members of the independent #OpenGov NetworkLate DigitalLunch: What would OpenGovernment in Northern Ireland look like?2015-01-14 20:30:0012  
Mick Fealty14,283*The form’s the thing, not the play within it.* _ @114849048279122543254 explains this first in a short series of talks with @110465386078989533154 on his life's work in theatre, arts and education.__ These two shapes, symbolically, represent the essence of all human activity.   They infuse opposed ambitions at the root of the possibilities of achievement. Everyone (knowingly or unknowingly) is conditioned by such concepts as: Gods and goddesses; Apollo and Dionysos; masculine and feminine principles; individual and collective; freedom and equality; striving and sharing; sky and earth; doing and being; reason and feeling; form and content; actor and audience; etc.  Through the platform, humanity aspires to the sky, determined to take on the gods.  Through the circle, humanity relates to the earth, seeking harmonies within itself and the natural world.  The history of the platform absorbing the circle has controlled human endeavour since Mesopotamian times.  The twenty first century is its dangerous aftermath, as it seeks to create paths to the circle absorbing the platform.  Creativity is the powerless force attempting to find means to achieving that transformation  The form’s the thing, not the play within it.RG Gregory The Platform and the Circle2014-11-19 22:30:005  
John Kellden32,612In this Hangout, we're going to talk about shared understanding, social cognition, enactivity and playfulness. Not necessarily in that order. Three stages of social cognition: *1. Opaque mind: No Is Less* Solemnity. Being serious all the time, even when levity would be slightly more fun and perhaps even meaningful. *2. Absorbent mind: More Is More* Social media. If one social media post is fantastic, let's consume one gazillion? *3. Transceiving mind: Yes Is More* Social cognition. After having said no, one gazillion times, we suddenly rediscover how to say yes. Any sufficiently advanced social cognition is indistinguishable from playfulness. Context - a little something to gear up for the Hangout: _"How do people understand each other?"_ -- Hanneke De Jaegher http://hannedejaegher.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/hannedphilboekformaat.pdf *Bohemian Gravity* https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2rjbtsX7twc *Enaction* _"Enaction is the idea that organisms create their own experience through their actions."_ -- Edwin HutchinsConversation Community: Shared Understanding2014-10-13 17:30:007

Mick Fealty14,283So, a new way for having serious fun in real (rather than virtual) time?  We're looking for a smart idea, a good pub and a decent pint. Oh, and some congentially smart company in a town called Oxford.  Someone (yet to be found) pitches us a smart idea on *how we might positively bridge Ireland's rich past and its uncertain future*.  It's all informal, but with a few important strictures: _One_, it's in a bar (ala cafe scientifique).  _Two_, the key speaker must have his/her pint in hand whilst speaking.  _Three_, the idea must take no more than one minute to pitch.  So a sort of Dragon's Den, but without the hideous dragons. The audience are then be free to prompt a deeper exploration of the idea. Watch this space... Slugger's prototype 'Idea and a Pint Night' in Oxford2014-03-14 19:00:002

Good Afternoon All Neanderthal Aficionados

4 February 1857, #onthisday Hermann Schaaffhausen presented his ideas about the origins of fossil bones found a year before in the Neander valley near Düsseldorf in a meeting of the Niederrheinische Gesellschaft für Natur- und Heilkunde (Lower Rhine Society for Natural History and Medical Studies) in Bonn. It was the first public scientific recognition of the human species later known as Neanderthaler.

A flat head, one of Attila's roaming horde's men, a Cossack from the Napoleonic Wars and what not… speculations about the former owner of the bones found in the Neanderthal mine in August 1856 ran wild. And there was, of course, the ongoing discussion of the validity of Darwin’s “On the Origin of Species” and evolution. The poor Neanderthal was defamed as Homo stultus and many refused to believe any closer relationship with us until well into the 20th century. But he was, as more recent discoveries showed, far underrated and there is a bit of Neanderthal still in many of us epigones of the Ice Age.

But read more on:

21C Literacies: Connected Learning

Fascinating stuff here from +Rob Reynolds although I am dubious about actual analysis. My guess is that the meaning of these interactions is so completely inflected for the individual (what means X to me might mean Y to someone else) and for the context (asking for help with an assignment 10 minutes before it is due is very different than asking for help a week ahead of the deadline) that aggregate analysis is always going to fall short. Life is learning and learning is life: we are never going to be able to measure or predict it (life and/or learning) except in enormously large cohorts with very rough measures, all on that macro level. I try to be very aware of the micro level of interactions as Rob shows it here so that I can be helpful to my students, but most of all my goal is to encourage the students to take the initiative and engage in whatever way seems most meaningful to them at that moment for that task, whatever it might be. Think macro, act micro. :-) The blog is a good tool for that, but far from perfect (blog conversations usually die out, and they are not easily revived). I guess my ideal system would be one like Known but with all the functionality of a traditional blog, beyond the very streamlined Known design. Anyway, good stuff to think about at the start of the semester... the students are right now making their first connections to one another today, reading each other's blog posts and commenting. :-)

You people get upset
when you realize there's no authority
in art but yourself and even then
you're not to be trusted
even then you're to be trusted.

She said, I left you a note

I asked, what kind of note
a poem? She laughed
she said, imagine.

Visual Storytelling: Background layers

I have started my next painting!

This background layer is done with only two colors. Primary Phthlo blue and a bit of Alizarin Crimson were used, and mixed with an impasto media to give body, and extend the spread of the paint.

The blue was placed first via flat painting knife and then a 1" (25 mm) rounded bristle brush. one there was at least dome paint all over the canvas, I went back and added the crimson with impasto media.

As the paints were very stiff, I was able to get significant brush strokes. The placements were circular, figure eight, and jabbing, to not show any pattern to the strokes. Some areas were completely overpainted, while other had little to none.___Visual Storytelling: Background layers

"For example, you can point the camera of your smartphone at a knob, and the app will display its functionality. Then you can drag and drop that functionality to an object like a light. Once the connection is created, you can turn the knob and the light will turn on or off. You’ve created an impromptu light switch."

"The strange thing here is that normally, in the history of culture, we have new stories and narrations and then we start to develop a tool. Or we have visions of wondrous new architecture—like, let’s say, the museum in Bilbao, or the opera house in Sydney—and technology makes it possible to fulfill these dreams. So you have the content first, and then the technology follows suit. In this case, we do have a technology, but we don’t have any clear idea how to fill it with content."

21C Literacies: Place in a virtual context

"I usually think of Oldenburg and the "third place" or "great good place" immediately when this comes up, but Debbie is mainly talking about workspace & learning space here. She also comments on the concept of a "student lounge" online, which is really a water-cooler-type discussion area that I don't think is quite far enough removed to be a "third place" in the Oldenburg sense."
-- +George Station 

(2 of 3) The next item from my "retro" scroll 'n stroll through +Debbie Morrison's G+ Stream earlier today. This one is about "place" in the virtual context.

I usually think of Oldenburg and the "third place" or "great good place" immediately when this comes up, but Debbie is mainly talking about workspace & learning space here. She also comments on the concept of a "student lounge" online, which is really a water-cooler-type discussion area that I don't think is quite far enough removed to be a "third place" in the Oldenburg sense.

Also, if you "Amazon" the books titled The Power of Place, I guarantee you'll find a few doors opening. They could be the core of a whole book discussion group!

Cc +Laura Gibbs since you're mentioned in Debbie's post.

Sagarmatha Café, episode 59: Pure enactive code

Enactive code can be used to summon participants for different purposes.
Here, in the Sagarmatha Café, it can be seen as an example of #meraki and an instance of human ingenuity, summoning us, usually passive consumers of content - to rediscover the liminal space between culture and nature.

21C Enaction: DRD4

people with the DRD4 genes tend to be thrill-seeking and migratory. And almost all study participants with this gene had a long history of traveling
"The DRD4 bearers were genetically pre-disposed to migrate, but only a small portion of the human genetic pool contains this trait. Whereas most of the population preferred to “[develop] intensive methods for using limited amounts of land”, these DRD4 thrill seekers actively sought out uninhabited lands “for more successful exploitation of resources in the particular environment”
These wanderlusters were the crucial movers who pushed human civilizations out of Mesopotamia, spanning societies into Europe, Asia, Africa, and America

Here's the cartoon... I bet we have all gotten this question from Netflix, right? Because you get into that binge-watching zone and might even be asleep. Netflix wants to know you are really still there! :-)

21C Enaction: Embodied Cognition

Abstract
Computer simulations have been shown to be effective instruments for teaching students about difficult concepts, particularly in the STEM disciplines. Emerging interface technologies are expanding the modalities with which learners can interact with these simulations, but the effects of these new interactions on conceptual understanding and student engagement have not been examined in great depth. We present here a study where middle school students learned about gravity and planetary motion in an immersive, whole-body interactive simulation, and we compared their learning and attitudes about science with students who used a desktop version of the same simulation. Results of the study indicate that enacting concepts and experiencing critical ideas in physics through whole-body activity leads to significant learning gains, higher levels of... more »

Knowledge Quest, episode 2: Y-DNA Haplogroups

We've made quite a journey already.

The Web in its totality, including all guiding narratives, culture re-enaction codes, core organizing, sensemaking metaphors, all differently instantiated throughout our human evolution - can be seen as a translation layer, between pure virtuereality(spirit, noosphere, field) and pure ecosystemics(Gaia, biosemiosis, tribes).
