Up there with being an astronaut, comic book artist, or the President, there’s one job that your average kid would probably love to snag: Working at Pixar. Animation and Pixar enthusiasts of all ages, take note! Pixar in A Box (or PIAB) is a collaboration between Khan Academy and Pixar Animation Studios that focuses on real-Pixar-world applications of concepts you might usually encounter in the classroom.

 

The latest batch of Pixar in a Box, released today, gives Makers a rare peek under the hood so that you can get a whiff of the warm engine that keeps those Pixar pistons pumping. There’s no need to register for the course, nor a requirement to watch the lessons in order — just head to their site and start exploring!

Online Public Schools Are a Disaster, Admits Billionaire, Charter School-Promoter Walton Family Foundation | Steven Rosenfeld | AlterNet.org

Online Public Schools Are a Disaster, Admits Billionaire, Charter School-Promoter Walton Family Foundation | Steven Rosenfeld | AlterNet.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

For the second time in three months, the Walton Family Foundation—which has spent more than $1 billion to create a quarter of the nation’s 6,700 public charter schools—has announced that all online public school instruction, via cyber charter schools, is a colossal disaster for most K-12 students.

“If virtual charters were grouped together and ranked as a single school district, it would be the ninth largest in the country and among the worst performing,” co-wrote Walton’s Marc Sternberg and Marc Holley, respectively the foundation’s director of educational giving and its evaluation unit director, in a recent Education Week commentary. “Online education must be reimagined. Ignoring the problem—or worse, replicating failures—serves nobody.”

Last fall, the giant foundation, which has pledged to spend its second billion to expand charter public schools nationally between now and 2020, simultaneously released three detailed commissioned studies finding more than two-thirds of America’s 200,000 charter students receiving all of their instruction over the Internet were barely learning the basics.

I ran across this post the other day giving the backstory and info about a new storytelling app for iOS devices. I haven't downloaded it yet onto my iPad (I have an Android phone) to check it out. I thought you should know about it anyway.


Hmmmmm -- this may be a good way to quickly capture customer "stories", tell your business stories, or record staff/vendor stories. That takes skills in evoking stories, and then story crafting, which many of you are already good at.


So go try this out and let us know if it's worthwhile!

It's not often that you get to work with people whose ideas and hope for humanity is both positive and visionary. In this article, I was proud to offer my writing & editing talents to help my friend Maya Zuckerman 'birth' one of the most interesting and daring takes on the collective story journey I've read in a long time. Guided and shepherded by "cultural designer" Joe Brewer and "transmedia giant" Jeff Gomez, Zuckerman manages to connect complicated concepts to real world events in a manner that makes new narrative concepts relevant. I am grateful for Maya's complete trust in the collaborative effort and the process through which this article found its voice. Maya... you're a rising 'star'.

How to Overcome the 3 Fears Every Storyteller Faces

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 25, 3:45 PM

Artist, illustrator, and author Christoph Niemann shares with us in this 20 minute video the 3 fears that any storyteller and creative faces on any given day.


What I love is that while Niemann is particularly talking to artists, if you substitute "storyteller", you can relate to everything he says.


Every business storyteller will bump up against one, two, or mostly likely all 3 of these fears when working with stories. It's time we begin to start talking about this so storytelling becomes more grounded in personal process. Why? Because understanding the personal process of working with stories leads to greatness, as Niemann points out.


Watch this video, wrestle with these fears, keep going, do amazing stuff, and story on!

This is one of the best descriptions I have seen of how our internal stories can infect our interactions and relationships. Although Brown talks about this unconscious storytelling with relation to personal relationships, the same principles can and should be applied to our business relationships.


Brown shows us how to get ahead of these internal stories by checking our emotions. A very helpful read!

Computing Across the African Diaspora | Nettrice Gaskins | Musings of a Renegade Futurist

Computing Across the African Diaspora | Nettrice Gaskins | Musings of a Renegade Futurist | immersive media | Scoop.it

I’ve dedicated several posts to exploring computing ideas and concepts underlying various mental, physical and organizational projects from the perspectives of the cosmology of African cultures and the world (i.e., in Afrofuturism and STEAM). This includes the computation underlying African geometry patterns (African Fractals), the Talking Drum (Electrofunk Mixtape), and augmented space (Afrofuturism 3.0).

 

This has been a learning process: instead of trying to fit African cultural heritage into a Western box I’m identifying the ways African and Indigenous cultures create their own technologies.

 

How might these methods inform the work of diasporic artists/designers? How can they be used to teach young people about the value of their culture, others’ cultures and STEAM?

The rhizome: A problematic metaphor for teaching and learning in a MOOC

The rhizome: A problematic metaphor for teaching and learning in a MOOC

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
more...
Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, January 27, 3:01 AM

ABSTRACT


Deleuze and Guattari’s principles of the rhizome were used to inform the design of a massive open online course (MOOC), Rhizomatic Learning: The Community is the Curriculum, which came to be known as Rhizo14. In a previous paper about learner experiences in this course our reported findings from a qualitative survey (which enabled anonymous responses) raised concerns about the ethics of using experimental pedagogies in designing MOOCs. In this paper, we continue this research and report learners’ understandings of the rhizome as applied in Rhizo14, from what participants have told us in email interviews and from our own reflections on participation in the course. Our findings reveal that many participants could relate to and welcomed the anti-authoritarian, anti-hierarchical characteristics of the rhizome, but that knowledge and understanding of Deleuze and Guattari’s conceptual principles of the rhizome was more difficult. Lack of engagement with theory and lack of appreciation of the incompleteness and complexities of the rhizome metaphor can result in negative consequences, such as imbalances in power relations and increased vulnerability for some learners.
