MOOC's and the McDonaldization of Global Higher Education | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

"But, let’s be clear what this means: thousands of students across the world taking the same course, with the same content, from the same instructor. And that is the problem. MOOC’s are now at the forefront of the McDonaldization of higher education."

Intelligence and the Stereotype Threat: It’s Not Me, It’s You

Intelligence and the Stereotype Threat: It’s Not Me, It’s You | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

WE’VE all been there: you feel especially smart and funny when talking to a particular person, only to feel hopelessly unintelligent and inarticulate in the presence of another.

 

You’re not imagining things. Experiments show that when people report feeling comfortable with a conversational partner, they are judged by those partners and by observers as actually being more witty.

 

It’s just one example of the powerful influence that social factors can have on intelligence. As parents, teachers and students settle into the school year, this work should prompt us to think about intelligence not as a “lump of something that’s in our heads,” as the psychologist Joshua Aronson puts it, but as “a transaction among people.”

Excerpted from Will Richardson’s new TED Book Why School: How Education Must Change When Learning and Information Are Everywhere. Richardson offers provocative alternatives to the existing education system, questioning everything from standardized assessments to the role of the teacher. In this chapter, “Real Work for Real Audiences,” Richardson envisions students creating work that is relevant and useful in the world outside school.

Why Some Students Believe They Have to Cheat (and How to Teach Them Not to)

Why Some Students Believe They Have to Cheat (and How to Teach Them Not to) | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
American students are cheaters.

Not all of them — but pretty close. Varying surveys of both private and public high school students showed from 80 to 90 percent admitting to some form of cheating during the school year, from copying another student’s work to cheating on a test. Cheating has been the subject of many a worried headline, while cheating scandals have hit high schools from Stuyvesant in New York to Clear Lake in Houston.

Another Use for Home H.I.V. Test: Screening Partners

Another Use for Home H.I.V. Test: Screening Partners | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
An unadvertised use for the OraQuick test may become popular and even help slow the AIDS epidemic, experts said.

 

The first rapid home-testing kit for H.I.V. has just gone on sale for $40, marketed as a way for people to find out privately if they have the virus that causes AIDS.

 

But some experts and advocates say that another use, unadvertised, for the OraQuick test — to screen potential sexual partners — may become equally popular and even help slow an epidemic stuck at 50,000 new infections each year in the United States.

Unearthing a Trove of Spanish Artwork

Unearthing a Trove of Spanish Artwork | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

 

Call it the Spanish enigma. At distant intervals, breathtaking masterpieces of world importance spring up on the art scene out of a morass of tame and often derivative works.

 

Never was the point made so forcefully, albeit not intentionally, as in the British Museum show “Renaissance to Goya: Prints and Drawings From Spain,” put together in order to display most of the institution’s rarely seen collection.

 

In the introduction to his pioneering book that comes with the exhibition, Mark P. McDonald, the leading specialist in Spanish drawings and prints from the 15th to the 19th century, draws attention to a common misconception: “In accounts of art in Spain during the Renaissance and early modern period it has often been suggested that Spanish artists did not draw and that print production was insignificant.” This, Mr. McDonald goes on, is due to the scarcity of Spanish drawings.

 

One reason for the scarcity is simply that many remain unidentified and “languish in boxes marked anonymous” because of the lack of financial stimulus. The curator points out that as early as the 15th century drawings in Spain were considered to be of little value. Yet period sources prove that some Spanish artists were busily drawing early on.

 

The will of a painter from Valencia, Bartomeu Salset, whose oeuvre is otherwise unknown, mentions “many papers with drawn images.” Ten years later, the 1428 inventory of the estate of another Valencia artist, Joán Vicent, describes a chest of drawings “and other large sheets.”

Adaptable Architecture: Meeting Dome by Kristoffer Tejlgaard & Benny Jepsen

Adaptable Architecture: Meeting Dome by Kristoffer Tejlgaard & Benny Jepsen | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
Canadian architects Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen have slightly altered the mathematical elements of a geodesic dome to form a new modular pavilion.


By using different sized triangular frames with both spherical and perpendicular surfaces, a new lattice form was birthed from that of a traditional geodesic dome. The result is a method of construction that allows surfaces to be extruded, scaled, pushed and pulled while maintaining logic.
Through this altered composition, small niches and crevices opened. Steel footings connect the wooden frame, made of locally-sourced pine. Steel nodes were made to fit standard rafter sizes, making the whole design movable.
The façade's curved surfaces are covered with recycled wood panels, creating opaque faces. Perpendicular surfaces made of PVC film allow light to enter while opening views to the outside. The project was commissioned by BL (Denmark Public Housing) for the Peoples Meeting in Denmark.

Social Media Etiquette for Journalists: The Rules Have Changed

Social Media Etiquette for Journalists: The Rules Have Changed | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

Ever since Facebook and Twitter emerged as key tools for news, journalists and newsrooms have performed a high-wire act: They need to use social media to engage their audience in new and inventive ways, while also maintaining ethical standards.

 

Achieving that balance has been rocky for many reporters, and several have faced serious consequences for speaking their minds in 140 characters or less.

 

But some practices that were frowned upon in the early days of social media engagement are no longer verboten, according to top social media editors who participated on the panel “Social Media Debate: Best Practices vs. Bad Habits” at the Online News Association’s 2012 conference in San Francisco. Associated Press social media editor Eric Carvin was the moderator.

 

Here are the social media points of etiquette that have changed the most in recent years.

Fear & Mourning in the Age of Digital Education | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

If students are going to learn how to manage their privacy and, at the same time, share openly in a society that values transparency, when and how will students gain that valuable expertise? If contemporary parents want their children to succeed as effective communicators with the media and in the environments that will undoubtedly be part of their lives, when and where should that instruction happen?

The audience, le beau monde of cinema, has gathered at the Debussy Theater on this unseasonably cool May morning on the French Riviera. The event, officially the opening of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, will be remembered for freakish storms that left stars shivering on the soaked red carpet.

But before the Palme d’Or, a little stand-up comedy from Mr. Costolo, the chief executive of Twitter. He has prepared some sober remarks for the occasion — a paean to the mighty tweet, an explication of how new tools of social media are reinventing business, social activism and everything in between.

Court Cases That Drag On Forever

Court Cases That Drag On Forever | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

OVER the course of two days last month, I testified in federal court in Wilmington, N.C., at an evidentiary hearing called to consider claims by the convicted murderer Jeffrey MacDonald, who for the eighth time has appealed for a new trial.

 

I was called as a witness because I wrote a book, “Fatal Vision,” published in 1983, about Mr. MacDonald and the murders, in which I concluded that the jury verdict of guilty was correct. The start of the hearing coincided with publication of a new book, “A Wilderness of Error,” by the documentary filmmaker Errol Morris (who is also a contributing columnist to The New York Times’s opinion section), which argues that Mr. MacDonald’s conviction for the murder of his pregnant wife and two young daughters in the family apartment at Fort Bragg, N.C., in 1970, was a miscarriage of justice.

 

Because of the notoriety of the case, the first day of the hearing was widely covered by the press. ABC, NBC, CNN and Fox had cameras and crews stationed at the entrance to the courthouse, and reporters for The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times joined North Carolina journalists inside the courtroom to hear testimony. I appeared on the “Today” show, on “Inside Edition” on CBS, and on Fox News, and I gave interviews to CNN.com and to The Washington Post.

Superweeds, Superpests: The Legacy of Pesticides

Superweeds, Superpests: The Legacy of Pesticides | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
The rapid adoption of a single weed-killer for the vast majority of crops harvested in the United States has given rise to superweeds and greater pesticide use, a new study suggests. And while crops engineered to manufacture an insect-killing toxin have reduced the use of pesticides in those fields, the emergence of newly resistant insects now threatens to reverse that trend.

The Pain of Reading

The Pain of Reading | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

THE fights between my parents were frequent, and my three siblings and I were used to their separations. Papi would gather his things or Mami would throw them into the street, cursing the day she met him. But this time we were the ones who left. Papi had gotten involved with the woman next door, and for Mami this was the last straw. She swore never to go back with him. And she didn’t.

 

We moved into my grandparents’ house in Guayama and from there, in quick succession, to my aunt’s, my godmother’s, my sister’s godmother’s, my neighbors’ and, on occasion, even strangers’. We lived like nomads, pushing on whenever our hosts’ hospitality had run dry. We hated living in those houses. Mami had become a tyrant: we couldn’t talk at night, not even in a whisper, and if anyone offered us an extra helping of food we had to say no. If we did something bad, she’d lock us in the bathroom and beat us in a blind rage — and we had no right to cry.
