Mobiluck - Mobiiliopetusteknologia lukiolaisen arjessa: Lisätty todellisuus opetuksessa

Mobiluck - Mobiiliopetusteknologia lukiolaisen arjessa: Lisätty todellisuus opetuksessa | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Mobiluck-hankkeen yksi tavoite on kehitellä tablet-laitteiden ja lisätyn todellisuuden sovellusten hyödyntämistä lukio-opetuksessa. Kahden hengen iskuryhmä oli Tampereen yliopiston järjestämässä koulutuksessa Lisätty todellisuus opetuksessa. Koulutuksen pitäjä Joanna Kalalahti oli valmistellut koulutuksen, jossa käytiin läpi lisätyn todellisuuden teoreettinen tausta ja padagogiset näkökulmat. Käytännön harjoituksina kokeiltiin mm. lisätyn todellisuuden sovelluksia, kuten Aurasma, Layar, Wikitude.

Landscape sound art, "Nature versus Synthetics" by Ronald Van Der Meijs,2008, Materials: welding, chrome bicycle bell caps | "The installation 'Nature' is a site specific composition from 5000 chrome bicycle bells that are swaying in the wind of the polder in a natural way, as a reed. Causing them to call each other in a rather subtle manner and cause a soft twinkling noise.

5 Leadership Storytelling Tips to Inspire Your Team Forward

5 Leadership Storytelling Tips to Inspire Your Team Forward | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
67% of leaders and managers lack the communication and presentation skills they need. These five tips will help you master leadership storytelling.

Via José Carlos
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

Involving the team in storytelling makes them want to make the story happen.

As Dean Hyers says:


"Storytelling doesn’t have to mean “telling” at all. By asking questions about where people are, where they want to be, and how they plan to get there, stories can be crafted in conversations and meetings, aligning everyone to convergent thinking with a story they helped create."

How Female Directors Could, at Last, Infiltrate Hollywood: Go Indie First

Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

In this article Govindini Murty points out a very important issue In Hollywood Film World. It is well known that it is still very hard to make it as a director, if you´re a woman in Hollywood. Also producers tend to choose mail protagonists over female. Hollywood film world thinks, that female directors are a risky investment. But how can it be?

 

You can´t explain it by counting numbers. Research shows that the gender of the lead protagonist—or the gender of the director—plays little role in the box-office success of a film.

 

Dr. Martha Lauzen found in her research at San Diego State's Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film that the size of the production budget is the chief determinant of a film's success, rather than the gender of the director or the lead protagonist.

 

Nowadays women have to prove their capability in Indie World. Govindini Murty, the writer of this article, suggests that the next step for the independent film community may be to make a targeted effort to encourage women to direct the kinds of genres—sci-fi, thriller, war, action, fantasy, comic book/graphic novel—that would lead to more directing opportunities on Hollywood blockbusters.

 

I wish American Female Directors good luck. 

 

(In Finland, the Jussi Prize (the Finnish version of Oscars) of The Best Movie, The Best Director and The Best Writing of 2013 went to Maarit Lalli. The budget in her movie Kohta 18 (Almost 18) was 300 000 euros.)

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, February 16, 2013 1:27 AM

Filmmaker Chris Wilson recently gave Cleverbot a job--to help him write a movie. You’ll see that the seemingly simplest task, like thinking up a character’s name, can be a totally foreign concept to Cleverbot one moment, while another moment, the AI becomes lucid, critiquing Wilson’s own taste with highly specific scrutiny.

 

I couldn't stop laughing, it's pretty funny.

Readers Have Needs

Readers Have Needs | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Different readers will have different things they like to read. Genres, style, subject matter – all these things will vary from person to person. 

 

But there are some qualities in fiction that are the same for everyone. These are the things we all look for in a story, and they are also how we judge whether something is a good read.


Via mooderino
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

Aristotle´s thoughts of basic dramaturgy, getting the audience jump in to the story and keeping them there, are the best known rules for a good story. Aristotle really knew how good storytelling goes and we have followed his thoughts ever since.

 

At first there is somebody who wants something. Then there´s somebody or something that prevents this guy from getting what he wants. Then there are some battles, ups and downs and various types of mental and physical struggle. On the top of the highest mountain the main character finds the truth he was looking for. Everyone is happy.

 

We know this formula of a good story, but we must also think about what the audience needs for being moved in some way. Need for new information, getting new understanding, connecting with the characters and getting closure after various ups and downs keep the reader interested in the story. And of course: the reader needs to be entertained. Easy job? Well, you can always try.
