Augmented reality power tool helps anyone craft things

Augmented reality power tool helps anyone craft things | AETN2014 | Scoop.it

Crafting with CNC mills, routers and other power tools isn't all that easy, especially if you're new to it. You'll frequently want a template, and it's all too easy to mess up a cut if you haven't developed a steady hand. Shaper doesn't think it has to be daunting, though: it's launching Origin, an augmented reality power cutter.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, August 24, 9:20 AM

This is a great idea: a power tool with intelligence that drives the motors and controls the drill bit, ensuring you cut to perfection every time. Basically you've become just a fancy motor for the tool to travel and perform its work. Brilliant. Watch the videos to see how it works for real. Expect to see more of this in the future: smart tools that go beyond the mundane to invade all aspects of the physical world, including in this case the construction industry.

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | AETN2014 | Scoop.it

Creativity is about fresh thinking. It doesn’t have to be new to the whole of humanity— though that’s always a bonus— but certainly to the person whose work it is. Creativity also involves making critical judgments about whether what you’re working on is any good, be it a theorem, a design, or a poem. Creative work often passes through typical phases. Sometimes what you end up with is not what you had in mind when you started. It’s a dynamic process that often involves making new connections, crossing disciplines, and using metaphors and analogies. 

.

Being creative is not just about having off-the-wall ideas and letting your imagination run free. It may involve all of that, but it also involves refining, testing, and focusing what you’re doing. It’s about original thinking on the part of the individual, and it’s also about judging critically whether the work in process is taking the right shape and is worthwhile, at least for the person producing it.

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | Sir Ken ROBINSON

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | Sir Ken ROBINSON | AETN2014 | Scoop.it

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield.

 

Why not apply the process to education? 

 

Robinson distills his solution of so-called "organic education" into four key principles:


Health: Promoting the development and well-being of the whole student, intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially.

Ecology: Recognizing the vital interdependence of all of these aspects of development, within each student and the community as a whole.

Fairness: Cultivating the individual talents and potential of all students, whatever their circumstances and respects the roles and responsibilities of those who work with them.

Care: Creating optimum conditions for students' development, based on compassion, experience, and practical wisdom.

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 30, 2015 9:32 PM

He is correct, schools are not factories that create duplicate models of a prototype.  Schools are also not a business, where the latest organizational model makes the system effective.  Schools are more like a community, where everyone works together to accomplish the goals developed collaboratively by all stakeholders in the community.  Notice that state and federal politicians are not in the community.

To Become a More Visionary Leader, Become Stronger at Visualization

In our research with thousands of leaders, one skill stands out — by far — as the most common improvement area: their ability to sell a vision to employees. Over 50 percent of leaders we’ve assessed struggle to demonstrate this form of visionary leadership, a larger deficiency percentage than for any other leadership skill. Leaders are consistently unable to vividly paint a compelling picture of the future in a way that inspires others to follow them along a challenging route toward a new business reality. This is an improvement area for most leaders because it requires them to synthesize and clarify ambiguous, complex business concepts into a clear path forward.

 

 

Lacey Mack's curator insight, June 2, 6:31 AM
Not only do we lead the students to achieve, but we want to educate them to become the leaders.  Ensuring they are able to achieve this, we need to learn the skills to develop their capability and confidence in this area.
