Who doesn’t love chores that can be done at the push of a button? Take laundry. The TV infomercial pitchman William “Billy” Mays Jr. used to ask his late night audience whether they were “on the ball?” He was selling a “patented” long-lasting detergent dispenser the size of a softball that users placed inside their washers. “Just toss and go,” Mays urged his viewers. “Get on the ball and you’ll never have to pour and measure detergent again.”  read more...

Imagine you are sipping a gin and tonic as you relax in a new Boeing 787 Dreamliner thousands of feet above an ocean and hours from the nearest airport. The epicenter of the ploy is the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing, a shiny, silver building that opened in September in a tract of piney woods in Prince George County north of U.S. 460 about 10 miles east of Petersburg.

What If Schools Created a Culture of "Do" INSTEAD of a Culture of "Know?"

What If Schools Created a Culture of "Do" INSTEAD of a Culture of "Know?" | Social Mercor | Scoop.it
Here at Educon yesterday, I had the chance to learn a bit more about design thinking from David Jakes. David's central point was that schools and teachers often get stuck in a "Yeah, but..." mindset when thinking about change.

 

Of course, we'd have to work to take active steps to redefine almost everything about our schools if a culture of "Do" is really going to be possible. 

 

===> Grading will need to change -- from a focus on content mastery to a focus on demonstration of an ability to apply content in novel situations <===

Urban Redevelopment & SILO 468: interactive light art at a reused silo in Helsinki

Urban Redevelopment & SILO 468: interactive light art at a reused silo in Helsinki | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

The city of Helsinki tapped Madrid-based Lighting Design Collective (LDC) to convert a once-used oil silo into an interactive light installation to commemorate Helsinki being the World Design Capital of 2012.

 

Facing the sea, the area is quite windy, which was not only design inspiration for the project, but it also powers the exhibit. LDC designed software to take data from the surrounding wind speed, direction, temperature, and weather, and turn it into patterns for the never repeating light show that displays on the inside and outside of the silo.
The silo’s walls were perforated with 2,012 holes that display a mesmerizing light show, engaging visitors with the data in a new way.

At midnight, the silo’s exterior turns red for one hour to reference that the silo was once a container of energy...

3D Printing and the Future of Manufacturing | CSC | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

Who would have thought that modern manufacturing could be done without a factory? Since the Industrial Revolution, manufacturing has been synonymous with factories, machine tools, production lines and economies of scale. So it is startling to think about manufacturing without tooling, assembly lines or supply chains. However, that is what is emerging as 3D printing takes hold.

The great transformation in the global labour market

The great transformation in the global labour market | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

The global expansion of higher education allows work traditionally reserved for the West to be done more cheaply and just as well in emerging nations, write Phillip Brown and Hugh Lauder. The result is that the wages and working conditions of western employees no longer set the global benchmark.

 

Brilliant article in Eurozine on the global war for labour which will put even more pressure on Western wages, working conditions and employment. Must-read piece.
