Filtering: Seven Principles

Filtering: Seven Principles | Learning to learn through social media | Scoop.it
In earlier posts towards the tail end of last year and early this year, I committed to writing a number of posts on filtering. The background is simple: - soon, everything and everyone will be connected - that includes people, devices, creatures, inanimate objects, even concepts (like a tweet or a theme) - at the same time, the cost of sensors and actuators is dropping at least as fast as compute and storage - so that means everything and everyone can now publish status and alerts of pretty much anything - there’s the potential for a whole lotta publishing to happen - which in turn means it’s firehose time - so we need filters - which is why the stream/filter/drain approach is becoming more common - and which is why I want to spend time on all this during 2014, starting with the filter"

Lea Verou on the latest developments at the W3C
wayne_b's insight:

Lea Verou always provides up-to-date reviews and this is no exception. Here she summarizes the changes in html5 - drop of hgroup, addition of main, and other concerns. Also a reference to the close arrival of Flexbox, and some good articles on the subject to get anyone up to speed on the layout solution for website development - at least one of several upcoming solutions! And why not get into where CSS 4 is going - just to keep you on the edge of your seat type news. And then there are two new API's and CSS Shapes. Thanks for the always accurate and timely info!

The Science of “Chunking,” Working Memory, and How Pattern Recognition Fuels Creativity

The Science of “Chunking,” Working Memory, and How Pattern Recognition Fuels Creativity | Learning to learn through social media | Scoop.it

"The process of combining more primitive pieces of information to create something more meaningful is a crucial aspect both of learning and of consciousness and is one of the defining features of human experience. Once we have reached adulthood, we have decades of intensive learning behind us, where the discovery of thousands of useful combinations of features, as well as combinations of combinations and so on, has collectively generated an amazingly rich, hierarchical model of the world. Inside us is also written a multitude of mini strategies about how to direct our attention in order to maximize further learning. We can allow our attention to roam anywhere around us and glean interesting new clues about any facet of our local environment, to compare and potentially add to our extensive internal model."


Via Howard Rheingold
wayne_b's insight:

It is the process of combining various pieces of information to create something new and more meaningful - that is our learning process. As we combine information from one person or site, and add the thoughts of someone else, that we generate new ideas or expressions of those combined thoughts.

The way we make sense fo the world might be a bricolage method on the boundaries of traditional practices and emergent practices. It will be the place of mindful choices and implementation.

luiy's comment, January 30, 2013 11:49 AM
What makes the difference, Bor argues, is a concept called chunking, which allows us to hack the limits of our working memory — a kind of cognitive compression mechanism wherein we parse information into chunks that are more memorable and easier to process than the seemingly random bits of which they’re composed.
Anne Macdonell's curator insight, May 14, 2013 8:27 AM
