When sitting in close proximity to a group of elephants, it always amazes me how small an elephant's tusks are relative to its body. Certainly far less than a hundredth of its weight.

Top 10 Tips to Use Collaboration Tools in eLearning | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Collaborative learning is an important part of eLearning. It allows learners to benefit from the experience of their peers, become fully engaged in their own learning experience, and more effectively acquire and retain information.

What happens in MOOCs? How can we encourage self organised learning? The goal is to connect people in a way that challenge them and deepens their learning experience. I found this to be an interesting piece of work.

Brace Yourself: This Korean Music Video Is About To Rule Your Life

Brace Yourself: This Korean Music Video Is About To Rule Your Life | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Now, I've seen some crazy stuff while graining on the web's surfbort. (Some things are too crazy to mention here, but take me to drinks and I'll regale some escapades.) But, never has something so peculiar flashed across my screen.

Because, whatever is going on in Korean DJ/producer Hitchhiker's video for "11" transcends space and time, and enters (perhaps even creates?) a new dimension. It's like Gaspar Noé enlisted M.I.A. and avid Second Life users who create bizarre GIFs for Tumblr to make a video for his auto-tuned baby chant.

On top of that, there's what looks like a chrome version of Laurence Fishburne's character from The Signal busting some dad-style dance moves. It's a mess — a beautiful, whacked-out mess that will soon come to dominate the Internet in the same ways Nyan cat and the Harlem Shake did. Consider this your warning.

Protesters defiant amid Hong Kong stand-off

Protesters defiant amid Hong Kong stand-off | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"Tensions escalated on Sunday when the broader Occupy Central protest movement threw its weight behind student-led protests, bringing forward a mass civil disobedience campaign due to start on Wednesday.  China's leaders must be sitting uncomfortably in Beijing.

As long as the protests continue, there is a chance they will spread to the mainland, where many are unhappy with one-party rule.  But if the protesters hold their ground, how far will Beijing allow events to spiral before getting directly involved?"

Protesters defiant amid Hong Kong stand-off

Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, October 6, 3:36 PM

Seeing all of these protesters laying across the highway caught my interest.  These people are serious about what they want with their elections and it is not have their candidates picked out for them.  People are taking over roads, shopping malls, schools, whereever they can go to prove their point.  They know that the amount of police forces is not enough to stop them.  Although for the most part other countries are staying out of the business of China Britain is supporting the protests as long as they stay within the rules of protesting.

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, October 6, 3:42 PM

It will definitely be interesting to see how far this political protest goes and how far the Chinese Government will go to stop this. China in some ways is a victim of its own success, in the past China would have been able to simply throw its military might on the political dissidents and silence all opposition but how possible is that today? Now China is a global economic power and the Western World's view on China matters, not wanting to risk trade problems China is showing far more caution this time around. While China is reaping the rewards of its world position without doubt China is also missing some of the benefits of the Bamboo Curtain.

How Educators Can Assist Learners in Developing a Growth Mindset

How Educators Can Assist Learners in Developing a Growth Mindset | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Coaches operate with an underlying assumption that giving advice to others undermines the confidence and self-worth of others.  Others don’t need to be fixed.  In teaching we need to move to exactly this stance in order to foster creativity in our students–to allow our students the choice, control, novelty and challenge that builds their creativity. 


Without the assumption that our students are already competent, imaginative, and ready to burst forth with regular exhibitions of novel and valuable ideas and products, we are limiting their creative capacities before they’ve even had a chance to discover them.
