Radical New Computer Graphics and Gaming Interfaces | MIT Technology Review

Radical New Computer Graphics and Gaming Interfaces | MIT Technology Review | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
See the best new ideas in computer graphics and interaction from last week’s Siggraph conference.
Sharrock's insight:

The "Face Replacer" can be used for more than just games. Imagine your avatar fully replacing the "real you"  when video chatting. Maybe you can spoof real people though, like personal friends or frenemies, famous actors, trademarked/copyrighted cartoon characters. Possibilites abound for harassment, comedy, drama, abuse, etc. So much possibility; so much danger. Could put lawyers to work in new ways though, and may open new businesses to establish identities, develop alibis for social as well as corporate connections, etc.

 

Can't wait for how education law will handle this. At whose door will the cost of digital forensics services get laid? Get ready for the blogs and articles about when comedy leads to suicide and violence.

Creativity, Thinking Skills, Critical Thinking, Problem solving, Decision making, innovation

Sharrock's insight:

This is interesting. It is created by "Air University" with the slogan, "Air Education and Training Command - Develop America's Airmen Today...For Tomorrow." My assumption is that problem solving, decision making, thinking skills, creativity, and thinking skills will receive a rigorous approach...more so than many other fields.

Spot on Duane..this is so much useful and you know how passionately I feel about incorporating all this into the core curiculum or for that matter just include all this as an after school programme- does not matter which route we take ,as long as the transmission happens. Many thanks !
Swati Lahiri's curator insight, March 20, 2013 2:54 PM

These are all the core skills that our students/children need to get more empowered and have a better tomorrow !

At Reebok, the cushioning in a best-selling basketball shoe reflects technology borrowed from intravenous fluid bags. Semiconductor firm Qualcomm's revolutionary color display technology is rooted in the microstructures of the Morpho butterfly's wings. And at IDEO, developers designed a leak-proof water bottle using the technology from a shampoo bottle top.

Don’t Ask for New Ideas If You’re Not Ready to Act on Them

Don’t Ask for New Ideas If You’re Not Ready to Act on Them | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Companies that focus on innovation often worry about how to encourage people to contribute ideas. But what happens when you ask people to participate in an innovation effort, and then get flooded with too many suggestions?
Sharrock's insight:

This is one of the big responsibilities of leadership: say what you mean and mean what you say. Asking for ideas but not acting on them can translate unfavorably on one's credibility. ..even if there are good reasons for not acting on some of the ideas. Leaders have to find ways to communicate their misgivings or lack of time/resources in ways that contributors can understand. Hopefully, the explanations don't derail future contribution requests.

Innovation

Today, technology is a significant driver behind change, and sometimes plays an important role in innovations in educational design and delivery. There are immense possibilities for greater and wider-spread change with the use of present-day technological advancements, as well as with the implementation of innovative educational programs. The challenge is to ensure that innovation plays a constructive role in improving educational opportunities for billions of people who remain under-served in a rapidly developing world.

Sharrock's insight:

First--I suspect I have using the term "complex" incorrectly. Second--I now need examples of the differences (distinctions?) of each quadrant term, mainly complex vs complicated. In a school, what kinds of problems does each describe? Answering these questions will help develop problem solving approaches.

Contests/competitions get results. Not only for the prize money, but for the recognition one gains. It seems to be the fastest way to access innovative solutions.
