Fraser Cain824,747Super Science Circle for October, 2013I know it's been a while, so it's time for a new Super Science Circle - the October 2013 edition.In case you weren't aware, the Super Science Circle is a list of more than 400 people who are actively engaged on Google+ and regularly post about science and education. We've got journalists, scientists, even a few astronauts. The Super Science Circle should be your best response to anyone who tells you that Google+ is just a ghost town. If you love science, this circle will deliver the goods.If you know anyone who actively posts about science, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.2013-10-04 20:14:53415304682CC G+

FOR SCIENCE!Every single person in this circle is active on Google+ and regularly contributes high quality posts about science.

Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348390CC G+
Brad Leclerc28,193I haven't shared a circle in a while, and since I seem to have a flood of new circlers lately, I figure now might be a good time to get back into the habit. Starting with this circle of 150~ awesome people, which I have named my "Inner Sanctum".They post on a wide range of topics, from gaming, to science, to writing, to politics (across the spectrum, so you might not agree with everything they all say), to movies, to saucy photos, and everything in between. There are even a few slightly more well known and/or celebrity types in here, though they're all fairly active about posting, and interacting in general).They all really have only one thing in common: they make my G+ stream epic.You really can't go wrong with this circle. Trust me on that.2013-05-09 05:33:39151629CC G+
Fraser Cain770,050Super Science Circle - April 2013 EditionIt's time for another sharing of my Super Science Circle. This is a collection of 400+ active people on Google+ who often post about science. If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle. Every little bit helps2013-04-26 21:02:03419226277CC G+

I love this, because I compared MOOCs to MMORPGs from the beginning.  I do think our "person of 2012" (Time magazine) will be a blast from the past in 10 years.  Online learning will be better and awesome, but not xMOOCs.

This article discusses social capital - and how it's so important today for young people (not badges, etc.)  Most interesting in the article was the reference to a degree as a "Hack" - instead of having to prove your knowledge, you have this degree.  Interesting food for thought, though I think rather Silicon-Valley-specific (for now.)

This looks really interesting, especially the discussion in advance.  It's Tony Bates' group.

"Until about 20 years ago, scientists thought that after we reached puberty the structure of our brains more or less froze. But more recent studies have shown that our brains continue to transform throughout our lives, though not to the extent they did when we were children."  Fascinating (and hopeful?) read from The Atlantic.   #learning

Got to love +Julie Dirksen - went right to Amazon and got the book.  It's written by a friend of hers, +Koreen Olbrish Pagano .  Here's why she likes it:
Reason 1: The subtitle — Designing for Authentic Practice.  So immersive learning environments can sometimes be shiny objects.  Remember when everything L&D was going to start happening in Second Life?  Yep, that didn’t happen.

One of the reason’s it didn’t happen was because there was because the focus was on the technology (“Ooo – we can build a virtual replica of our corporate university!”) and not on the really interesting part — the possibility for high-context practice. We remember more if we learn something in the same environment where we will use the information, so virtual worlds were interesting for that reason, but that got lost in the hype cycle. Koreen rightly focuses on the real purpose forimmersive learning – h... more »

This is from Tony Bates.  For those who wonder why he is cheering, here's a pull quote (there's more at the link on his site)  :

What she said about online learning

She did not (contrary a possible reading of Hiltzik’s headline in the LA Times) pour cold water on online learning. What she said was as follows:

it is one tool in the toolbox
it’s not easy to do well
students need regular interaction online with other students and with instructors
so it’s not going to save buckets of money
it’s better for students in upper level programs
it could help in sharing courses across campuses and in assisting transfers (between community colleges, state universities and UC).
Why what she said is important

There are probably many of you reading this article who like me, would agree with all the points she made about onlinelearning.... more »

There are a few things of interest in this article.  One is the reason I love Cisco.  Of course I am also an avid user of the more techie apps the article refers to, but acutely aware of the fact that without great broadband and access, none would be possible.

More importantly, we have a problem here.  There are far less young people and "older people" are younger and younger.  And they are living longer and longer.  The less we pay attention to them as a technology market that needs to be addressed, the more we will miss out on opportunity.  I have a feeling I will be saying lots more about that.

What's a Code School drop out to do?  +Audrey Watters did you ever find a way that appealed to you?  The roar is getting louder.  TNW had an article this week that called it a literacy and I agree.  Happy to hear suggestions from people who picked up some basics online without too much time or commitment and hoping this sentence is not an oxymoron.  Don't say Code School.  :)

+Michael Feldstein had a fantastic post this week that expanded on one of +Matt Greenfield's article's on this new site, ReThink Education.  Definitely worth following, and thanks for putting it on my radar Michael.

I'm sure I'm not alone in wondering what it is about "Flipped Classroom" that made the concept catch on more than other digital learning trends.  Perhaps it's because instructors want to/need to integrate technology and this is an actual recipe?  Because of the press?  Because it has been in NYT and much mainstream news?  I'm not sure, but it is interesting.

I liked what Eric Schmidt said to the SXSW audience - short commentary on Mashable's report.

Minerva - I have always been a bit skeptical though it sounded like it had huge potential.  I just couldn't imagine how they would get it together.  Now I am really impressed.  This list of scholars include Cathy Davidson, Eric Mazur ("founder", in anyone doesn't know the name, of the flipped classroom,) and many very impressive people.  Looks like they are really executing - really impressive!

Ah, the simple things.  There were actually some tricks in here I didn't know - it's worth a read!

Thanks to +Keith Hampson -  Looks like he is about to start another interesting series about the cost of higher ed  "Another factor is that there is simply a remarkable shortage of information about costs in online higher education." I have a feeling he will uncover some.  +Phil Hill

You don't even have to watch the entire powerpoint below to feel the pain we get from powerpoint!  Perhaps +Guy Kawasaki is excluded here :)

"What do these (successful edtech) services have in common? They all start out free, and they go straight to students and teachers without requiring buy-in from administrators and districts. They are mostly, but not all, aimed at K-12 education.

And they are all relatively simple technology."

I am definitely finding this the case.  "By now, most in the startup community are well aware of the pervasive opinion that it’s best for wannabe tech entrepreneurs to bypass the MBA — not to mention years of climbing the corporate ladder — to get their hands dirty right away. After all, the thinking goes, the sooner you fail, the sooner you can start to succeed. Building a startup from scratch, winding it up and letting it go is the new MBA. Business school, meanwhile, has been relegated to the second tier, a place where math-oriented overachievers who don’t know what to do with their lives go to put off the real world."

50 Smartest Companies for 2014, by MIT Technology Review.  Some are obvious, some not as much.  Tesla, Google, Amazon, Dropbox.  Then there's Kaggle, which I should have clearly known about (and do now, after doing some reading) but didn't.

Really enjoying THE Journal these days.  Here, +Dean Shareski has some great ideas about creating community.  I have always really liked the first one, "Create a Compelling First Impression."  He likes to do it with video, but it's a personal preference.

No question that experience gives us the ability to make connections - I would add that in education, that's one argument for the humanities.  It often provides the connections, at least theoretically.  Applied to experience - even better.
