Elia Saikaly Finds Life and Purpose in Adventure Filmmaking

Elia Saikaly Finds Life and Purpose in Adventure Filmmaking | New learning | Scoop.it
Adventure filmmaker Elia Saikaly is inside his tent typing his blog into a Macbook Pro. Outside, violent icy winds tear at the yellow fabric of his flimsy mountainside shelter. He’s reporting from Camp 4, which sits on a plateau that looks like the surface of the moon. At 24,000 feet, this is called the Death Zone. The summit of the highest peak on the planet is less than a mile straight up, but at this altitude the body can no longer adapt: It just wants to die.
Paul's insight:

Great article on Elia Saikaly, currently working on a platform that will allow students to take part in adventures around the world

Download 14 Free Posters from NASA That Depict the Future of Space Travel in a Captivatingly Retro Style | New learning | Scoop.it
I probably wouldn’t tell them how many of us long for the spirit of their own time, which American history has labeled “the Space Age” for good reason. It had its share of awfulness, starting with the apocalyptic tensions of the Cold War, but that competition between societies did spur mankind to voyage boldly and unhesitatingly out into the great beyond, at least for a while there.

Giving pupils permission to fail - Innovate My School

Giving pupils permission to fail - Innovate My School | New learning | Scoop.it
November saw the exhibition ‘Permission to Fail: Sketchbooks of Graphic Designers, Illustrators, and Photographers’ at The School of Design Gallery at Mount Ida College, Massachusetts. When we see exhibitions of art it's always a showcase of final, finished pieces, the highlights of an artist's body of work over a number of months or indeed years. This exhibition is interesting in that it is showing all the 'failures', the disasters, the unsuccessful pieces that went into making those final pieces.
