Donald Clark Plan B: MOOC on Human-Computer Interaction: videos have 7 fails in HCI | Learning Focus | Scoop.it

"What Coursera should have done is do what this course recommends, apply the usability test strategies that Krug, Norman and Nielsen recommend. Get in the experts and do ‘voiced trials'. To be fair, compared to the benchmark of dull one hour long lectures, it’s an improvement and it’s a start."  Selected by www.CogBooks.com - the leader in adaptive learning for critical needs - from Donald Clark's Plan B blog

27 Ways To Publish Student Thinking

27 Ways To Publish Student Thinking | Learning Focus | Scoop.it

Publishing student thinking can be among the most powerful ways to improve learning.

 

There are a variety of reasons for this, but the biggest reason is that the “threat” of publishing moves the lodestone from the classroom to the “real world.” This, of course, changes everything.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, February 2, 2013 2:38 PM

As a writing teacher any chance to enlarge the audience for student writing is important.  Young writers, when they write for someone other than the teacher, tend to be much more motivated. 


These days, publishing has never been easier. Consider the great 'What to publish' list in this article to open your mind to the powers of a true blended classroom.

Synthetic Biology - Inventing the Future

The hottest new field in biotech is synthetic biology: Scientists can now re-program life at the cellular level, just like a computer program. Syn-bio experts (also known as bio-hackers) are re-programming the DNA in viruses and creating novel life forms that can replicate and grow just like natural single cell organisms. 

Joining Robert Tercek in the discussion are Andrew Hessel, Distinguished Research Scientist with the Bio/Nano Programmable Matter Group at Autodesk, and Dr. William Hurlbut, Physician and Consulting Professor at Stanford University. 

Inventing the Future is a live news program featuring coming trends that will shape society. In today's world, success means knowing "What's Next After What's Next?" Lead by Robert Tercek, Inventing the Future offers insight into the future of the world after tomorrow.
