“We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.”

The Daily Routines of Geniuses

The Daily Routines of Geniuses | Light Bulb Shining | Scoop.it
Juan Ponce de León spent his life searching for the fountain of youth. I have spent mine searching for the ideal daily routine. But as years of color-coded paper calendars have given way to cloud-based scheduling apps, routine has continued to elude me; each day is a new day, as unpredictable as a ride on a rodeo bull and over seemingly as quickly. In a his 2013 book, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. Author Mason Curry examines the schedules of 161 painters, writers, and composers, as well as philosophers, scientists, and other exceptional thinkers.

Are You a Credible Technology Leader?

Are You a Credible Technology Leader? | Light Bulb Shining | Scoop.it
We do not need our leaders to be our best users of technology, but they should know enough to safely use some of it and enthusiastically encourage and lead their teachers to use much of it.

 

Leadership, good leadership, transcends physical boundaries.  Technology cannot be dismissed from the leadership's responsibility to be in the know.  It is acceptable for the teachers to be more skilled than their leader in the use of technology with students. 

 

But it is not acceptable for the leader to stay removed from its use.  We need to learn beside our faculties and know and understanding the tools they are using. Room must be made for common understanding and improved use. 

 

Teachers, students and parents need to trust that those who make technology available and who advocate for its use know what they are talking about. The right mix of vision, knowledge, risk taking... and a dash of courage ...make schools dynamic learning environment for all of us.

 

The warning is against leaders giving the nod to their teachers without understanding the technology. 

 

===> It raises issues of trust, integrity and safety. <===
