Lianne Picot's curator insight, September 15, 2015 8:36 PM

One of my favourite story pieces of the week. What I like about this is that Ikea actually makes the customer the story. Too often we forget to involve our customers in our storytelling and it is so powerful when we do. If we can see ourselves in the story, we are more likely to engage and buy. For brands like IKEA, the customer really is the story. In the literal sense too as we have to put the darn stuff together! ;)

Ligar periodismo y arte no es siempre sinónimo de rigor, incluso se asocia como humor y poca seriedad. Sin embargo, con las innovadoras tácticas de diseño gráfico se está logrando un periodismo narrativo y original a través del arte. Quizá en el dibujo esté la clave para contar historias de otro modo y llegar a diferentes públicos de manera directa.

Pixar In A Box Teaches Math Through Real Animation Challenges | Katrina Schwartz | Mind/Shift | KQED.org

Pixar In A Box Teaches Math Through Real Animation Challenges | Katrina Schwartz | Mind/Shift | KQED.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

Pixar senior scientist Tony DeRose was faced with a problem that animators had never solved — how to make the hand of an old man look lifelike. It was 1998 and he was working on the experimental short film “Geri’s Game.” DeRose needed to figure out how to make a sculpture hand model with many angular planes look smooth and skin-like on the screen. To do this he developed an algorithm using weighted averages that won him a Scientific and Technical Academy Award in 2006.

Pixar is constantly solving new technical challenges that allow its artists, designers and storytellers a broader range of movement and texture in the movies they make. Now the company is teaming up with Khan Academy to use examples like DeRose’s discovery of surface representation to show students how the math and science they’re learning in school is applied by Pixar animators.
‘At Pixar art and technology go hand in hand. It’s the interplay between the two sides that’s essential to what we do.’

Khan Academy is best known for its modular videos explaining various curriculum topics that students can use to better understand and practice a concept. But, like many other groups working on reaching large numbers of people through online video lessons, its content producers have discovered that lots of people stop watching partway through.

Lianne Picot's curator insight, September 9, 2015 7:23 PM

Today's classrooms are experiencing a shift unlike any we have seen before. Tech savvy kids are often having to use outdated equipment and some have skills well beyond those of their teachers. I love this idea of enabling students to utilise digital storytelling as a way to show and share their learning! Developing subject matter expertise as well as storytelling , project planning and collaboration skills is beneficial not only to their immediate learning needs but are key skills for their futures. Putting the learning into the hands of the students through technology AND storytelling?  Seems like a marvellous idea to me!

In the last few years, I have so often found myself in groups of 'like-minded' people, whether that be a small local group of social entrepreneurial women or the famed TEDx community.

The harsh reality that we so often overlook is that the future success of humanity lays in the ways that we learn to collaborate and, yes cooperate with 'not-like-minded' individuals AND groups.

Storytelling, and listening to stories, is a crucial component of the growth of collaboration. We need to re-integrate the importance of storytelling into the fabric of our schools, organizations, and communities. Through coaching some kids to give TEDx talks, I learned a wonderful lesson. The act of storytelling empowers a youth to believe in their ability not only to tell their story but to create the story of their lives.

The next civil rights frontier is digital | Juan Andrade Jr. Opinion | The Dallas News | immersive media | Scoop.it

Across the country, students are back to school, their parents having purchased long lists of essential school supplies. These days, that list includes more than just pencils and notebooks; increasingly, access to a home Internet connection is a prerequisite for academic success.

Unfortunately, too many families lack the means to afford a monthly subscription — and the digital literacy to understand and benefit from its value. What’s more is that students on the wrong side of this digital divide — those whose access to online resources is limited to public library visits or limited mobile data plans — will increasingly find themselves at a disadvantage compared to their peers.

The digital divide is pernicious to the Latino community. A 2013 study found that only 53 percent of Latinos had a broadband connection at home, compared to 74 percent of white households. That’s why, like voting rights, the digital divide has now become a front burner civil rights issue and a fundamental barrier to full enfranchisement.

Students' return to school is marred by renewed segregation across US | Alan Yuhas | The Guardian

Students' return to school is marred by renewed segregation across US | Alan Yuhas | The Guardian | immersive media | Scoop.it

Millions of students around the US have started autumn with familiar rituals: waiting for absent teachers, flipping through outdated books and watching their peers fall behind in strained, segregated schools that experts warn represent a slow-burning crisis neglected by leaders.

Little has changed since a 2014 report concluded that 60 years after the supreme court declared segregation unconstitutional, major regions of the US have turned away from integration toward deeper inequality, said Gary Orfield, a UCLA professor and co-author of that paper.

The “substantial majority” of black and Latino students are in schools segregated by race and poverty, Orfield said. Such students are being primed by struggling schools for “a downward spiral” in a society that increasingly demands college diplomas.

Dr. Jabari Simama, President of Georgia Piedmont College, told the Rockdale County Board of Commissioners Tuesday night the school will be introducing a three-track film and television production program this fall.

"We have been generally aware of film and television production's impact on your economy and tourism," he said, adding that the college had wanted to introduce the production program for some time. "We have decided to move up the date for the film and television production program [to begin]."

The first tract will begin this September, and is aimed at continuing education and workforce development residents who "want to be part of the industry and want to get training quickly," he said.

Group Of 100 Black Male Professionals Greet Students On First Day, Help Bust Stereotypes | Kimberly Yam | HuffPost.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Students going back to school had some awesome cheerleaders to usher them into the new year.

A group of 100 black men gathered outside Martin Luther King Elementary School in Hartford, Connecticut, last week, forming a line to greet kids on their first day of school, A Plus reported. The welcome was organized by Pastor AJ Johnson and attorney DeVaughn Ward and was aimed at not only getting the students pumped for school, but also changing the public's perception of black men.

 

“Kids were running out of the bus to smack our hands like they were running down a football field,” Ward told Yahoo Parenting. “It was amazing to see them so fired up to go to school and meet their teachers.” 

 

Johnson told A Plus that black men are often seen in a negative light. 

 

"In an urban community, people say that black men [aren't] valued or there aren't enough black men doing something," Johnson told the outlet.
