The difference between Apple and Samsung industrial design

The difference between Apple and Samsung industrial design | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
"Paint the back of the fence", has been referenced time and again, "because you'll know." It's a quote from the late Steve Jobs' father intended to help instill pride in craft. Jony Ive, Apple's senior vice president of design, has spoken numerous times about the importance and inevitability of great design as well, about the care and consideration it takes, and how people notice it...
Gordon Shupe's insight:

Embedded in what I want to teach my students: Review what is out there, create, design, review your design, edit, improve, have others review it, consider their perspective, make final edits, release. Strive for excellence, design intentionally.

Kids Speak Out on Student Engagement ~ Edutopia ~ by Heather Wolpert-Gawron

Kids Speak Out on Student Engagement ~ Edutopia ~ by Heather Wolpert-Gawron | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
A while back, I was asked, "What engages students?" Sure, I could respond, sharing anecdotes about what I believed to be engaging, but I thought it would be so much better to lob that question to my own eighth graders. The responses I received from all 220 of them seemed to fall under 10 categories, representing reoccurring themes that appeared again and again. So, from the mouths of babes, here are my students' answers to the question: "What engages students?"

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

Excellent observations for we educators, from our students, about how to engage them in their own learning. Most of this article is direct quotes from 8th graders.
