Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud | Video on TED.com

Onstage at TED2013, Sugata Mitra makes his bold TED Prize wish: Help me design the School in the Cloud, a learning lab in India, where children can explore and learn from each other -- using resources and mentoring from the cloud.
アーサー's insight:

Mitra's idea is the perfect companion for p4c. Like Lipman's caravan I'd imagine P4C caravans driving around even the most remote areas with teaching materials on board and the best possible wireless Internet connection to create COIs and train teachers wherever needed ( and of course a person who pays for the whole project-->if that kind of person is reading this contact me at arthur(at)bimh.org ).

Michel Foucault: What is Enlightenment?

Michel Foucault: What is Enlightenment? | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it

Today when a periodical asks its readers a question, it does so in order to collect opinions on some subject about which everyone has an opinion already; there is not much likelihood of learning anything new. In the eighteenth century, editors preferred to question the public on problems that did not yet have solutions. I don't know whether or not that practice was more effective; it was unquestionably more entertaining.

In any event, in line with this custom, in November 1784 a German periodical, Berlinische Monatschrift published a response to the question: Was ist Aufklärung? And the respondent was Kant.

Lines of flight: Deleuze and nomadic creativity

Lines of flight: Deleuze and nomadic creativity | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it
In the 60s cult-TV series, The Prisoner, a British spy (played by Patrick McGoohan) is held captive in an Orwellian Village on an island controlled by a faceless authority. The prisoner, known only...
アーサー's insight:

Deleuze linked human creativity to flight. It is our desire to escape the status quo that leads us to innovate. Like the prisoner, we dream of being anywhere but here. We coordinate, form alignments, combine our powers and innovate. We remake the world on creative new trajectories.

Centre for Inquiry UK

Centre for Inquiry UK | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it
The Centre for Inquiry London applies science and reason to questions regarding religion and the supernatural, and to pressing contemporary ethical, social and political problems.
アーサー's insight:

CFI UK's primary aim is education, with the focus on the following three areas:

(i) the application of science and/or reason to questions regarding religion and the supernatural (e.g. questions about the divine, parapsychological questions, etc.)

(ii) the application of science and/or reason to pressing contemporary ethical dilemmas and social/political problems (e.g. stem-cell research, global warming)

(iii) the question of what is, and is not, good science (e.g. is intelligent design, or cold fusion, or magnet therapy, good science?)

CFI UK is concerned to defend and promote academic freedom, particularly from unjust legal threats, and to promote science-based policy.

Philosophy of Education Archive

Philosophy of Education Archive | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it

The Philosophy of Education Society is pleased to sponsor the annual collections of some of the best work in our field. Each year the Philosophy of Education Society invites its members to submit work for possible inclusion in this collection, and these papers are carefully reviewed by an Editor and Editorial Committee. The refereeing process is anonymous and rigorous; the committee rejects more than half of the essays submitted. Accepted essays are comments upon and returned to their authors for revision. They should be counted as refereed publications.

Great archive of materials in philosophy of education..

Late modernity (or liquid modernity) is the characterisation of highly developed present day societies as a continuation or development of modernity, (rather than as a distinct new state of post-modernity). Late modernity is marked by global capitalist economies with increasing privatisation of services, and by the information revolution.
