Steve Job's Memorial? Glorious Images Of Apple’s New Spaceship Headquarters -TechCrunch Aug

Steve Job's Memorial? Glorious Images Of Apple’s New Spaceship Headquarters -TechCrunch Aug | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

The building is so important to the company that no less than Steve Jobs went to a Cupertino City Council meeting a couple months ago to seal the deal. They were eating out of his hand. All the rest is really a formality at this point. “There is no chance that we’re saying no,” Cupertino Mayor Gilbert Wong said after the meeting.

Today, Cupertino released more detailed plans about the project on the city’s website. Known as “Apple Campus 2″ to the city, the project will be built on a 175 acre area near the 280 highway. The total building will be approximately 2.8 million square feet, will feature a 1,000 seat auditorium (perfect for all but Apple’s biggest events), a fitness center, 300,000 square feet of research facilities, a power plant, and underground parking. But all of that sounds boring, what you really need to see is what it looks like: a giant, flying saucer-like loop.

Aurasma goes one step further: The latest version of the software that is currently in development, recognizes hand gestures. A user can then stretch out his hand and grab the camera before, there to interact with virtual content. AR content can be navigated previously had always using a touch-sensitive screen. A demonstration of Autonomy turns an empty table, an air hockey game: users of firing the puck, in which they wag their hands.

Around the world, the culture of music has developed over many centuries. Integral to that development has been its tools: musical instruments. Musical instruments play an important part not only in art, but also in many other social contexts, such as religion, the military, celebrations and ceremony. This is reflected not just in the sounds they produce but also in their design and purpose. Instruments can be made in unusual shapes, with precious materials or with beautiful decoration, making them unique and collectable items. ...

The Innovative Educator: Seth Godin Discusses Failure of Educational Model

The Innovative Educator: Seth Godin Discusses Failure of Educational Model | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Best selling author Seth Godin discusses the failure of our educational model that's built around producing factory workers.

Godin explains that it wouldn't take very many passionate parents to start schools down the right path. Parents just need to realize that they and their children own the learning and they are not the property of the government. For ideas on how to do this read my free guide downloadable from the right column on this blog: Fix The Schools, Not the Child.

IDEAS FOR LEADERS: How to create an experience that sells – and do you want that? The Leadership Hub | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Here I’m talking about any experience. You could be creating websites or software, or writing books, or designing products, or teaching classes, or producing events, or seeing patients. Whatever the case, what would you rather result from that experience: to be popular, or to create something that you yourself would be happy to receive?

Those six words prompted a roaring cheer from a crowd of students in the auditorium at Smart's Mill Middle School Monday.


The mantra was the culmination of an assembly at the school put on by North Carolina motivational speaker and comic Keith Deltano as part of National Stomp Out Bullying Day.

 

Smart's Mill was one of thousands throughout the country who observed the day.

OllieBray.com: Taking Risks with Leadership, Learning and Teaching (3 of 5): Solve problems with empowerment and experiences

OllieBray.com: Taking Risks with Leadership, Learning and Teaching (3 of 5): Solve problems with empowerment and experiences | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

This is the third in a series of articles about taking risks with Education Leadership, Learning and Teaching. The articles are based around a workshop that I have been doing with the same name for Scottish Local Authorities.

"A "Wicked problem" is a phrase originally used in social planning to describe a problem that is difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements that are often difficult to recognize. Moreover, because of complex interdependencies, the effort to solve one aspect of a wicked problem may reveal or create other problems..."

5 Twitter Tips to Increase your Exposure and Engagement

5 Twitter Tips to Increase your Exposure and Engagement | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

This excellent piece was written by Nikki Peters of MarketMeSuite for Hubspot. It was curated by JanLGordon covering her topic "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond" on Scoopit.

 

It is a question on them ind of just about everyone: How do I get more exposure for my content?  Well, here are some good tips, some of which you may know, but perhaps not all of which you are following?

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Schedule your tweets!  This is particulalry important if some of your audience is in another time zone and actively engaging in their business day while you sleep.

Analyze your data.  Learn from your analytics and create more tweets like the ones that are successful.

Connect your Blog to your Twitter account and participate in any ensuing conversation

Tweet questions!  This invites interaction.  "Remember that if someone asks you a question in real life, you tend to respond it automatically. Think like a human being when you tweet, and be responsive, too."

"Be Personal, React and Engage!.... The more you engage with your followers on a personal level, the more they'll understand you care about, and the more willing they'll be to connect with you and build a relationship."
