Hello My Name Is Inigo Montoya

I have to post this.  It is so awesome and reminds me of a very valuable lesson learned back in the day in a martial arts class.  The lesson was about skill, training, experts, notices, and crowds:

http://io9.com/something-weird-happens-when-three-master-fencers-battl-1570551641

 A little fighting ...  a little psychology ...

and, in case you need a little something something to get the mood as you watch:
Hello, My name is Inigo Montoya....

Edit :
As an aside, though this video involves fencers (fighters) and the discussion it reminded me of also took place in the context of a martial arts class, you could also apply this to coordinating efforts to help in your kids' school or the community. There are a lot of people who volunteer and help in their communities.

Teaching for Learning

As instructors, we hope to give our students skills that will help them in the real work, their future jobs or in classes they might take later on down the road. 

+Laura Gibbs  said so well what many of us want to express as we begin teaching, so a shout out to her .

Very cute cartoon that I've seen in a few how to teach presentations.  It's the work of H. Schwadron, and here's where you can find more info about Schwadron's work:  http://schwadroncartoons.com/

As always during the Orientation Week, I had a few false Gradebook Declarations this morning. It's not that people intend to cheat. The problem is instead that they are in a hurry, or they are bored, or both; they think it doesn't matter whether they do good work or not; they don't read the instructions... all kinds of reasons. And, sadly, we all know that those kinds of attitudes and behaviors are very much reinforced by how school works in general: students are usually overcommitted (and to help students make more realistic choices, we should call this a 6-hour class or 9-hour class, not a 3-hour class — the designation should be based on workload, not seat time)... students may end up in required courses that bore them or else they enroll in a course because it fits their time schedule, not because of any real interest... it often doesn't really matter one way or the other what kind of work they are doing, and they often don't even know about the real quality of their work because there is no feedback at all or only the unhelpful mumbojumbo that is ABCDF... and there is such a lack of variety in the tasks that they are asked to do (see cartoon below) that they are not in the habit of needing to read instructions — there is never anything really new to do. So, I try to make sure my classes offer something new and worthwhile to the students, but it can be bumpy at first, especially for students who have no time or no interest and who are instead doing what the university tells them to do: jump through the Gen. Ed. hoop so you can graduate...
As some of us were discussing yesterday re: trying to "unschool" inside a very traditional school setting, it's not always easy! :-)

Bullying and Aggression

School has begun in some areas of the U.S. and is about to begin in other places.  Along with the intellectual and cognitive elements of learning in the school environment come many wonderful social elements like meeting new people, joining cool clubs, trying new activities, and hanging out with peers and friends.

Not all of the social contexts are positive, though. Parents whose kids are transitioning to high schools or middle school may fear increases in bullying behavior, concerned that their child might be a victim or even a perpetrator. 

+Scott Cramer  shared this wonderful video outlining a wise and empathic response from a scifi and pop-culture celebrity.  Mr. Wheaton offers some great advice to a young fan who is concerned about nerds being the target of bullying.

Wil Wheatons response to a young girl on how to deal with being called a nerd.

This is absolutely amazing and should be shown in school assemblies at every school in existence. +Wil Wheaton can not get enough thanks for so eloquently and passionately answering this question. He showed understanding and compassion for those that are bullied and even the bullies. Bravo Wil! I wish I had opportunity to hear this answer when I was growing up and being bullied and made to feel less about myself. Sharing with my daughter. Thank you, sir.

I first saw this in a comment by +Brad Warbiany on +Michelle C's stream.

Baby Sharks

In celebration of Shark Week, talented nature photographer +Chris Mallory  has been sharing some photos that he's taken.  These cute baby sharks are called swellshark.

See more of Chris' shark week work here: https://plus.google.com/102738311227610607654/posts/BcQyfTwSSMn where he posts a photo and some information on the leopard shark

 

So Shark Week. Is it just about foolish fate-tempting humans and huge ferocious badass monster sharks? What about the other sharks? Do they get any air time?

Here are a couple of baby Swell Sharks (Cephaloscyllium ventriosum). These ones are just a couple inches long, but even in adulthood they'll never attain a length much longer than a meter. They feed on smaller fish and crustaceans, and they are completely harmless to humans.

Not exciting enough for Shark Week though, are they? Needs more sensationalism.___Baby Sharks

Friday Funny

I'm not a fan of "reality television" (unless it's a documentary, of course) nor do I typically like contest-like competitions.  I make an exception for Last Comic Standing

I adore a good laugh; laughter brings us together, and as a psychologist, I certainly appreciate humor as a sophisticated defense mechanism. 

I don't envy the Last Comic Standing judges.   Talented, them all (INCLUDING the judges)!  One of my favorites (Joe Machi) was eliminated last night, so I thought I'd share this youtube set.

In general, I liked this show because the talented people in it kindly acknowledged the talent of the people around them.  We're all better when we do that.

Gender Stereotypes in Imaginary Play

I suppose this is a followup to the last Baturday post...

I just saw Chris Hallbeck's cartoon (http://maximumble.thebookofbiff.com/2014/08/01/909-batty/) in my stream courtesy of +Kimberly Chapman , so a shout out to her!

I love this one because it is timely and can spark discussion in a psychology class, a parenting class, or a gender studies class.

I remember reading research studies focused on preschooler's imaginary play and sex-typed behavior and the influence that a the presence of a parent had (see, for example, Lytton & Romney, 1991), and I have a old grad school buddy who is looking at (potential) recent developments in this area.

Curiosity is the Key

I had seen this TED Talk before, but I thought, as many of us make all of the back to school preparations, I would share it.

As I tell the teachers that I am teaching to teach teachers, there's a huge difference between having 10 (or 20) years of teaching experience and having one year of teaching experience that you repeat for 10 (or 20!!) years.

Here's to fostering curiosity and creativity in ourselves and our students.

Do YOU want to add a point to Your score on the Nerdity Test

Of course you do. 

And you can always earn a few points by explaining or (over)analyzing a nerd joke.

I found the Weird Al video Word Crimes to be clever, fun, and catchy.  As someone who grades student papers, a lot of what he said LITERALLY _sang_ to me.

But let's not take these things too seriously, okay :-)

So enjoy.

Enjoy the song, the commentary on the song, and some guided discussion (for students) related to the song.
 
And here's a little fun for discussion, found via +Laura Gibbs who also writes a thought-provoking introduction to her share of this post here:  https://plus.google.com/111474406259561102151/posts/UZbd5WdJif6 (a shout out to Laura)

I'm thinking that +Amanda Rachelle Warren and +Laura Gibbs could make good use of the suggested questions here.

And yes, I still laugh when I listen to Al's song. It's funny. It's fun. It's not education. It's opinion, and it's made to entertain and provoke.

Sounds like it's done both of those things many times over. I call that "success."___Do YOU want to add a point to Your score on the Nerdity Test

Love this!  And as +Yonatan Zunger  mentioned, when I first heard this earlier today, I thought it was just going to be one of Weird Al's clever food-themes parodies.

No one expects...

OK. This video did not go in the direction I thought it was going to go. 

I'm glad to know that, even after all these decades, Weird Al can still make me laugh. I'm also aware that this is likely to end up as one of those parodies of his which completely overwrites the original song in my mind, and I will probably never hear "Royals" again without hearing this.___Foiled by Humor

Fair Food?

If you live in some areas of the U.S., you already know that The State Fair is an important event in the community.  It brings together all kinds of neat things from food and flowers to rides and games (and where else could you watch a cow give birth while munching on fried alligator on a stick?!?)

But I digress...

In the dairy barn at the Minnesota State Fair, talented sculptors carve images of butter princesses (seriously, see http://www.mnstatefair.org/entertainment/timelapse/butter_sculpture.html)

Though the talented young women whose images are created from blocks of butter are service-oriented members of the community, when I go into the dairy barn to get sundaes for my family, I secretly wish that the butter could be shaped into something nerdier...

Here Comes The Rain Again

And it washed away some of the lovely 3-D chalk art that a man by the name of Shawn McCann created for the Independence Day Celebration in my town.  The playful sea creature was carefully planned and meticulously highlighted and shaded so that when it was viewed from a particular spot, it appeared to take up not two, but three dimensions. 

The work took the artist about three days.  I did not get to see the finished product in all its 3-D glory  (my kiddo has ASD and is not a fan of crowds and loud noises), but I stop by this morning.  By then, that pesky "fourth dimension" time (coupled with the rain last night) had taken its toll on the work.  

So, a shout out to people who take the time and effort to create something beautiful... even if it can only be enjoyed for a short time.

Complete with a little phrenology humor.  A shout out to +Marty Nozz  for posting this. 

As a random aside, I once had the privilege of having a REAL phrenology reading done courtesy of Bob McCoy, the late owner and curator of The Museum of Questionable Medical Devices 

Mr. McCoy's museum was in the St. Anthony Main area of Minneapolis when I was a grad student, and he was a much sought after guest at science-themed parties.  Many of the cool items once housed in the museum are now part of the Science Museum of Minnesota, but you can read more here:  http://www.museumofquackery.com/

Baby Catapulting and Other Batsh*t Hypotheses That Teach You How Science Works

"There's nothing quite as satisfying as a really good joke. Someone has made a clever new connection between two mundane things that we've all encountered—and suddenly we have a lovely "aha" moment. We find it funny.

That sense of revelation accompanying a good joke or comic is very similar to what many scientists experience when they finally figure out a great explanation for some kind of previously unknown phenomenon. But don't take it from us. Take it from the scientifically-trained author and illustrator Zach Weinersmith (née Weiner), creator of the popular web comic Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (SMBC), known for its science-themed humor."___It's Science I

Where Does Our Knowledge Come From?

That's a topic for discussion and reflection in my research methods course.  We talk in class about how scientists  _and_ how "normal people" think, evaluate information, and provide advice. 

What types of practices, services, and interventions do parents of children with special needs use, how do they learn about them through their social networks, and are they satisfied with those services?

I don't spend much time on Twitter (even less so during the summer, since people at my school drop off the radar, and I mainly use Twitter for school)... but our Writing Center shared an item that I reshared and it's the only thing I've shared at Twitter that really spread, so I feel obliged to share it here.

After such a long winter for many of us in the U.S. , spring has sprung and the hot, sunny days of summer will soon follow.  With the carefree days of summer come some dangers that parents should be aware of:

Yes, there are neglectful parents who don't care about the well being of their children, but most parents who leave their child in the car just made a really bad and costly mistake because they were distracted, their routine changed, they were tired, or their usually vocal child was asleep or quite.

I watched my mother lose her mother and sister within months of each other. I am now watching it completely ravage the body of my friend who just had his first child.

Even though, for example, I am not the best artist and I was paired with "not the best photographer," we organized and worked together to create something in our kids' classroom that was (if I do say so myself) pretty darn impressive and (dare I say) won over another class that had, ehem, more talented individuals who did not work as well together as a team :-)___

Living with a Lag


This reminds me a bit of the old recalibration experiments (which used spatial displacement rather than temporal displacement) that my grad school mentor Herb Pick was interested in. 

A video (from the edutainment show Brain Games ) should give you a bit of an idea of the kind of spatial displacement prism research that Dr. Pick was interested in when I was a grad student at the University of Minnesota's Institute of Child Development:
NYC Basketball Featured on Brain Games

That video (linked above) reminds me a bit of a day when, during one of Herb Pick's labs meetings in which members would share coffee, cake, and good conversation about a nerdy research article, some of us wore prism glasses just, you know, for fun.

One of the members of the research group belonged to a group of kinesiology professors and grad students who played basketball at noon outside the Human Factors Lab at the U, and we suggested he challenge his group to a game _while wearing the prism glasses*  (He didn't do it)

Time and space.

This video is an interesting because it uses TEMPORAL displacement.  I often wonder how long (if ever) it would take to recalibrate to something like this to make it look like you can function "well enough" in daily life:
