Quick hands-on: The 2012 Leica M (Typ 240)

Quick hands-on: The 2012 Leica M (Typ 240) | Sculpting in light | Scoop.it

I finally had the chance to have some time alone with the new Leica M (2012 Typ 240) this evening at an event held by Leica Malaysia for the 2012 Maybank Photo Awards (you’ve got until the end of October to enter here; I’m serving as head judge). Advanced note: it was a pre-production prototype, with the SD card glued in because the image quality is nowhere near final. I’m told there will be some notable improvements between this version and the production version; it’s mostly to do with the firmware. I won’t be drawing any conclusions on image quality, because it’s simply impossible to tell at this stage. Please excuse the crappy product shots, I was using my old iPhone 4.

"Carol Dweck's research, which focuses on what makes people seek challenging tasks, persist through difficulty and do well over time, has shown that many girls believe their abilities are fixed, that individuals are born with gifts and can't change."

Computer Simulation For Geography Education ~ New Learning Times

Computer Simulation For Geography Education ~ New Learning Times | Sculpting in light | Scoop.it

by Ching-Fu Lan

 

"The world is becoming more connected than ever, but students' interest in learning geography, one of the most important foundations for understanding global issues, is declining. Drawing on research that suggests computer simulations are effective tools to engage students in meaningful learning, the authors explored the potential of the computer simulation game Global Village, a virtual world developed in the Quest Atlantis game platform, for geography education."

by Allie Gross

 

"The arts are not to be underestimated. While budget cuts and the emphasis on high-stakes testing have meant sacrifices to classes like music, visual arts, dance, and drama for many schools, that doesn't mean these subjects should be forgotten. Various free online tools and resources, like the seven below, are available to help schools integrate the arts into other subjects."

Conference speakers call for more harmonization of European higher education @insidehighered | Sculpting in light | Scoop.it
More harmonization of higher education systems across the European Union may be needed if its universities are to continue to compete on the global stage, speakers said at a recent conference.
Taking an unfashionable standpoint in the light of rising anti-European sentiment in Britain and some other countries, Kurt Deketelaere, secretary general of the League of European Research Universities, told a conference that EU-wide legislation may be required to enable the truly free movement of students and researchers.

Oldest and Youngest Populations

Oldest and Youngest Populations | Sculpting in light | Scoop.it

"There are 1.2 billion people between the ages of 15 and 24 in the world today — and that means that many countries have populations younger than ever before.  Some believe that this 'youth bulge' helps fuel social unrest — particularly when combined with high levels of youth unemployment.  Youth unemployment is a 'global time bomb,' as long as today’s millennials remain 'hampered by weak economies, discrimination, and inequality of opportunity.'  The world’s 15 youngest countries are all in Africa.  Of the continent’s 200 million young people, about 75 million are unemployed.

On the flip side, an aging population presents a different set of problems: Japan and Germany are tied for the world’s oldest countries, with median ages of 46.1. Germany’s declining birth rate might mean that its population will decrease by 19 percent, shrinking to 66 million by 2060. An aging population has a huge economic impact: in Germany, it has meant a labor shortage, leaving jobs unfilled."

Athabasca University Press - Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media | Sculpting in light | Scoop.it

Within the rapidly expanding field of educational technology, learners and educators must confront a seemingly overwhelming selection of tools designed to deliver and facilitate both online and blended learning. Many of these tools assume that learning is configured and delivered in closed contexts, through learning management systems (LMS). However, while traditional "classroom" learning is by no means obsolete, networked learning is in the ascendant. A foundational method in online and blended education, as well as the most common means of informal and self-directed learning, networked learning is rapidly becoming the dominant mode of teaching as well as learning.
