Savvy broadcast and media companies are putting more emphasis on social networks to keep the public informed.  Recent studies have shown that the "younger generation" will keep up with the news and public events if they are presented well on social media.  Even print outlets such as newspapers and magazines are publishing digital editions to appeal to younger audiences equipped with social media tools.  The communications future has arrived!  Aloha, Russ.

After reading this article in the New York Times yesterday I started thinking about one of my favorite coloring apps for children.  No matter how old or young you are coloring requires a combination of skills that can be applied in various situations.  Combining coloring with augmented reality is an easy way to introduce this exciting technology to students.  The colAR Mix app (available for iOS and Android devices) is a super fun choice with plenty of free options.

The lesson here for higher ed is about developing familiarity with new technologies.  The possibilities for AR across all disciplines are immense, but often students (and teachers) find it difficult to initially connect with a use that allows them to start to conceive of how it can be used.  Something as ubiquitous as colouring is used in many contexts (think of the Anatomy colouring book used by many health practitioners to learn about systems and connections).

Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, April 18, 8:15 PM

Just bought a colouring in book for Sophie that does this. The fact that I can make my own is cool.

Bang Kachao: Bangkok’s Green Lung

Bang Kachao: Bangkok’s Green Lung | eLearning | Scoop.it

"In the heart of Thailand’s most populous city, an oasis stands out from the urban landscape like a great “green lung.” That’s the nickname given to Bang Kachao—a lush protected area that has escaped the dense development seen elsewhere in Bangkok.  The city is built on the alluvial plain of the Chao Phraya River. Toward the southern end, near the Gulf of Thailand, is an old meander that never quite formed an oxbow lake. That meander traces the boundary of Bang Kachao, which TIME magazine once called the 'best urban oasis' in Asia.  According to a travel story in The New York Times, Bang Kachao is gaining popularity among tourists lured by bike tours, a floating farmers’ market, and the relaxed atmosphere."

This video in a good visual introduction to Bang Kacho in the Phra Pradaeng neighborhood of Bangkok from a nice travelers guide to the city.  

Danielle Lip's curator insight, April 14, 12:32 PM

These pictures of the heart of Thailand is very interesting and intriguing because the viewer can get a view of what the city Bang Kachao really looks from a arial view. The researcher call Bang Kachao the green lung because the area looks like a lung as well as the meander that formed an oxbow lake. Every country. city has different landmarks that make the location their own such as Michigan whose borders look like a mitten. Bang Kachao is becoming larger and growing more and more in population such as tourists, farmers and bike tourers. This location has a relaxed atmosphere and the Landsat image gives it justice, showing its actual size as a city based on its location near the Chao Phraya River towards the Gulf of Thailand which allows for access to the gulf and other different trading advantages.

Gracie Marcoux's curator insight, March 24, 2:29 AM

The article, in summary, goes over how there are so many users of social media around the world, especially young adults. Apparently, terrorists absolutely love twitter. What we need to realize is that social media can be taken as a terrorism breeding house, and everyone is subjugated to its danger.

This applies to terrorism in Unit 4. How? Instead of direct attacks like 9/11, people are now targeted worlds away. And that's far more terrifying.

Reframing Problem Solving with the Appreciative Inquiry 4 D Cycle - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman

Reframing Problem Solving with the Appreciative Inquiry 4 D Cycle - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman | eLearning | Scoop.it
Have you ever noticed how, as leaders, we’re often far more sensitive to people’s weaknesses than we are to their strengths? And once we’ve targeted a weakness, do you ever notice how common it is for us to slide into problem-solving mode?

Lately, I’ve been experiencing daily reminders of how this inhibits us from recognizing what people are good at and helping them use their strengths to serve others. I’m reminded of this every time I watch a teacher slide into editing mode before she provides a learner narrative feedback.  I’m reminded of this every time I watch an administrator rush to make judgments about the observations gathered during a lesson study. And I’m reminded of this every time I listen as two people on opposite sides of an issue fail to practice active listening or check their confirmation bias.
