"Inside Outside Sustainable Printmaking

 

An exploration of sustainable printmaking, away from the normal studio environment.

 

3 workshops, 3 locations, 3 processes. A challenge to revisit the whole process of printmaking, considering parameters such as sustainability, environment, resources and waste. An experience outside the comfort of the studio to let the natural elements changing staff and students' way of thinking.

ghbrett's insight:

This is a wonderful short film about "3 workshops, 3 locations, 3 processes." in about 3:45 minutes. It reminds me of the joy, frustration, and satisfaction of working with students in the "out of doors." What seem to be barriers are overcome in small and in large steeps. Collaboration becomes a necessity making the end product, Art, something shared. We need more sharing. Consider taking the metaphor from this film and apply it to other disciplines. Open Your mind, open your Students minds, and open the minds of the World.

The World Beyond the Word
August 19, 2012
Keynote presentation delivered by Stephen Downes to Destination: Innovation, Banff, Alberta.


In order to manage the deluge of data produced by modern technology, a rapidly changing society, and challenging environmental and economic systems, we need to relearn what we understand as social and scientific literacy. The students of today and the innovators of tomorrow will speak languages we barely recognize today. What are the fundamentals of these new literacies, how do we learn them and teach them, and how do they redefine innovation in the future? In this talk Stephen Downes describes a future in which learning is a creative act and the environments and technologies that will be needed to support this learning.

PLN Starter Kit: A Resource for Fledgling Connected Educators (students, and life-long learners)

"This crowdsourced resource is meant to help those who are just beginning to start their journey as a "connected educator." It is not exhaustive. In fact, if all goes to plan, it will be a perpetual work in progress - just like the PLNs it will hopefully help build.

 

... PLN is an acronym for Personal Learning Network. The acronym is relatively new, but the idea is not. Teachers have always had learning networks—people we learn from and share with. Teachers are information junkies. We’re also social. Put the two together and you have a personal learning network." from source: http://www.livebinders.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This site is a living document with links to very many resources related to creating, using, and understanding the values of Personal Learning Networks. It is a collection of information for a teacher, trainer, student, or life long learner that will help them to begin developing their own Personal Learning Network resources.
