It's not as high-powered as a Raspberry Pi, but the AAduino is a tool many DIY types will find useful.

A round-up of interactive video options

A round-up of interactive video options | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"We take for granted that we can interact with text, but up until recently it’s been a challenge to interact (read/write/talk) with media...

Being able to interact with video allows us to personalize video-based instruction, by leading learners to the segment of video we like them to watch, by adding voice-overs, notes, pop-ups, screenshots, maps, references, pauses. It also allows learners to create video with even more depth and features and can the interaction can be used to support media literacy learning."

Met meer mogelijkheden tot interactie met video's krijg je betere en persoonlijker betrokkenheid bij de inhoud. Door audio of voice-over toe te voegen of notities, kaarten enzovoort. Dat werkt natuurlijk prima in onderwijs of instructievideo's. 

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, July 23, 2014 7:38 AM
  • Created for educators, EDpuzzle allows teachers to set up classes, to assign specific video lessons and to engage students in creating their own video lessons.  Analytics share which students watch, when they last watched, and whether they watched at home or at school.
  •  Mozilla PopcornMaker is a powerful multiple-layer video editor that invites users to remix videos to include pop-ups, text boxes, images, maps (even in streetview), as well as Wikipedia articles that continue to update.
  • ThingLink for video,  looks so promising.
  • eduCanon is an interactive learning platform into which teachers may embed questions and any html object.  
  • TED-Ed lessons offer educators the opportunity to customize a TED video to meet their specific instructional needs.
  • Write-on Video is an iPad app that allows users to annotate and animate videos and pictures, by arranging the elements into storyboards and slideshows enhanced by free-hand drawing, text boxes, stamps, and sound clips.

Why The 'Creative Class' Is Taking Over The World

Why The 'Creative Class' Is Taking Over The World | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In 2003, Richard Florida predicted that right-brained people would rule the world in his book "The Rise Of The Creative Class."

 

There is an economic need for the "creative class," which is why it's thriving right now, writes Florida. He says one in three Americans, or 40 million workers, belong to it.


Here's how he defines the creative class:


"I define the Creative Class to include people in science and engineering, architecture and design, education, arts, music and entertainment whose economic function is to create new ideas, new technology, and new creative content. "


It's necessary because creativity is what powers many of the new industries of our day: from social media and computer graphics to medical research and urban planning, Florida says. The current business environment means that creativity is the "most prized commodity."

Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning

Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Maybe “design” can help in understanding the importance of cultural diversity and interdisciplinarity.

 

Why?

Because, “to design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit; it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade and even perhaps to amuse.”-Paul Rand

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Creativity is about fresh thinking. It doesn’t have to be new to the whole of humanity— though that’s always a bonus— but certainly to the person whose work it is. Creativity also involves making critical judgments about whether what you’re working on is any good, be it a theorem, a design, or a poem. Creative work often passes through typical phases. Sometimes what you end up with is not what you had in mind when you started. It’s a dynamic process that often involves making new connections, crossing disciplines, and using metaphors and analogies. 

.

Being creative is not just about having off-the-wall ideas and letting your imagination run free. It may involve all of that, but it also involves refining, testing, and focusing what you’re doing. It’s about original thinking on the part of the individual, and it’s also about judging critically whether the work in process is taking the right shape and is worthwhile, at least for the person producing it.

Ever wonder what makes those wacky, creative types tick? How is it that some people seem to come up with all kinds of interesting, original work while the rest of us trudge along in our daily routines?

Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship

Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
As you read this, students all over the country are sitting for state standardized exams. Schools spend up to 40% of the year on test prep, so that, shall we say, no child is left behind.

 

Schools used to be gatekeepers of knowledge, and memorization was key to success. Thus, we measured students’ abilities to regurgitate facts and formulas. Not anymore.

 

As Seth Godin writes, “If there’s information that can be recorded, widespread digital access now means that just about anyone can look it up.

 

We don’t need a human being standing next to us to lecture us on how to find the square root of a number.”
