I like these kind of articles - I think every parent should read them as it's kinda hard to argue with the data when you look at just how impactful music training can be on language skills, reading skills and even SAT scores...

A little while ago, one of Holland's largest banks presented me with a challenge. They wanted their new retail offices to convey an image of clarity and openness, using a large open space with multiple desks for serving clients.

Habing worked in some sonically challenged workspaces, including financial services, makes this article very interesting to me.  Edith workspaces evolving, taking into consideration the STI just makes sense.

I agree smart leaders bring innovated ideas to life and music is one way to do this!

Here is yet another tool used for global communications. This I've seen in action. The students that I've observed using this application have only been sharing it with their teacher and peers. I have watched students create projects; inserting pictures, text, citations. It's a great applications. Then they plug in their iPads to the projector. So I'm currious as to how they can share their creations with people globally. Maybe embedding code into a web page. That's the only question that applications like these leave me with. However tech savy I feel I am, I always have questions.  But perhaps even some of the students that I see using these apps know and I just haven't had a chance to mess around with the application and maybe it's easier than it seems.

Innovation, economics, and messy, complex truths | GigaOM Tech News

Innovation, economics, and messy, complex truths | GigaOM Tech News | Education | Scoop.it

Andy Kessler, whose take on things I generally like, recently wrote a piece for The Wall Street Journal called, “Robots, 3-D Printers and Other Looming Innovations.”

 

In it he posed the question of whether the internet and other disruptive trends have destroyed more jobs than they’ve created. Could innovation actually be fueling the stubborn unemployment that has persisted in much of the country?

 

But Kessler was merely tossing some rhetorical “chum” into the waters to bait naysaying Luddites. Sure, people are hurting now, Kessler noted, and probably more jobs have been destroyed than created, but eventually things will more than even out, so suck it up!

 

Kessler then delivered his list of future job creating “game changers” with the certitude of a preacher sermonizing to his flock (it’s WSJ, after all).

 

But, Kessler’s truth ignores a messy paradox; namely, that while the innovations of tomorrow are most certainly worth working toward, that doesn’t obviate the parallel truth that the depth and duration of pain being experienced throughout much of the country is chronic, systemic, and arguably, must also be dealt with.

In today's era, new innovations and "robots" are causing more harm to workers than we think. The Machines built these days are designed to do the job of the worker. New technology is destroying jobs and I anticipate that it will only get worse as technology improves over time. It is possible that new jobs could be created in place of the jobs that were lost, but I feel it is not likely.

Activist Literacies: Inspire, Engage, Create, Transform-- JOLLE@UGA Conference-Call for proposals

Literacy in the 21st century no longer refers only to reading and writing; rather there is an increased emphasis on multiple, new and digital literacies. Our theme this year, “Activist Literacies: Inspire, Engage, Create, Transform” draws on this evolving nature of literacy with a particular focus on addressing issues of importance to schools and communities. This theme extends to multiple and multimodal literacies, arts-based, performance-based, and digital literacy, broadening and connecting literacy across traditionally separated disciplines and borders. ... We want to frame the inaugural JoLLE@UGA conference in a new way, one that is action-oriented, informed by research and practice, and also inventive and creative at its very core.

More anecdotal evidence from the Alzheimer world where music is driving therapy and helping patients to feel better.  I like this story because having started with music and then moving to dance they are now finding that the patients want to express themselves through other creative aspects such as art classes.

 

It seems to me that it's the underlying idea of creativity - whether that's in creating the melody with their voice or the moves of the dance or even the lines on the page - it is the act of creating that is mitigating the effects of Alzheimer's - I wonder....

New Research: Do Pictures of People Increase Facebook Engagement?

New Research: Do Pictures of People Increase Facebook Engagement? | Education | Scoop.it

Marketers often spend hours selecting and producing visual content to post on Facebook brand pages. Creatives, strategists, and managers can go round-and-around debating which images work and which don’t for a brand. Sometimes they debate over whether or not the brand should show people in brand images, and everyone has their differing opinions.

 

At Taggs, we decided to bring data to help settle the debate – Do people pictured in brand images help or hurt Facebook engagement?
