I made this as part of my 30 minutes of random art. It took 30 minutes in part because I had lots of help and ideas from my children who also balanced on me as I tried to select items. It’s something like extreme ironing but with PhotoShop. On the other hand, it may very well inform how they see media and teach them things about PhotoShop/concepts about layering etc.
I recently tried to present something on #ds106 and MOOCs in general at VSTE. It’s probably best it wasn’t filmed. I’m going to try to present something more coherent in writing.I’ll skip my pitch about how there might be some lesser revenue streams in the model that would encourage HE institutions to start doing this more. Maybe I’ll do that later just to see Jim’s reaction. This will be a description of what made this course work for me although I believe it could be generalized at least some to the world as a whole. My description of #DS106 was essentially an online courseI know the slide says OER. I’m still thinking about why I did that other than online course was too long. meets Woodstock. You take a guided online experience and mix it with both chaos and, more importantly, community. At the core, this is all about community. I’ll play out a few of the things that seem to indicate that to me. Mechanical Aggregation DS106 seems to have the semi-mythical eduglu working. People are writing in all sorts of places with a variety of clients and it’s being captured in a way that encourages both commenting, community, and creativity.

How Early Academic Training Retards Intellectual Development | Psychology Today “Intellectual skills, in contrast, have to do with a person’s ways of reasoning, hypothesizing, exploring, understanding, and, in general, making sense of the world. Every child is, by nature, an intellectual being–a curious, sense-making person, who is continuously seeking to understand his or her physical and social environments. Each child is born with such skills and develops them further, in his or her own ways, through observing, exploring, playing, and questioning. Attempts to teach intellectual skills directly inevitably fail, because each child must develop them in his or her own way, through his or her own self-initiated activities. But adults can influence that development through the environments they provide. “ tags: weekly intellectual learning academic dy/dan » Blog Archive » Marbleslides Is Here “Delight.

A pretty wide departure from the normal stuff on this siteI’m feeling like an American Jim Groom but after spending some time with the esteemed Bryan Lamb I thought it’d be fun to share some random rap songs. I’m sure all of these songs curse. Most are offensive. Some are just bad but I still like them for various reasons. I have no idea how bad/good the videos are as I didn’t see most of them. You’ve been warned. This will be the cleanest song in the list. “They call me the Hip-Hopapotamus Flows that glow like phosphorous Poppin’ off the top of this esophagus Rockin’ this metropolis I’m not a large water-dwelling mammal Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?” While I usually think police are coming up behind me, I do know all the words. About 1:29 was when it got really good. I can’t find anything clean enough to quote. Tu Pac. 1:23 ish – “something’s evil in my IV . . . ” I always thought this song was called Cadillac Doors. From 2 Fast 2 Furious the soundtrack but the I was way too happy with the lines “I’m like this corner I gotta stay bent/ I need every quarter I gotta pay rent.” “I take breath, the opposite of primateen mist” Niki Minaj’s lines […]
