Animals could help reveal why humans fall for illusions - OUPblog

Animals could help reveal why humans fall for illusions - OUPblog | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
By Laura Kelley and Jennifer Kelley Visual illusions, such as the rabbit-duck (shown below) and café wall are fascinating because they remind us of the discrepancy between perception and reality. But our knowledge of such illusions has been largely limited to studying humans.
Gerald Carey's insight:

Although the classic rabbit/duck illusion is used here it is only because the authors are discussing the use of illusions by animals (e.g. the bowerbird).

Topics include colour constancy, forced perspective and perceived size.

Google Docs sharing and its cloudy usability

Google Docs sharing and its cloudy usability | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
Our top learnings from two years of Google Docs?

1. Google Docs relieves a lot of the pain from sharing attachments. It's worth using.
2. Colleagues working on the same GDoc during a meeting cuts a lot of review cycles short. It's a great relief.
3. Native Google Docs do not consume space from your storage quota, while any other format does. So if you have legacy documents it is wise to take the time to convert or at least decide how important they are.
4. Naming conventions for GDocs require re-education of old habits.
5. Document lists and searches of Google Docs are incomplete and hence buggy, which creates frustrations.
6. A Google Sites intranet page by topic, with index pointers to relevant Google documents, makes it easier for everyone to find what they're looking for. Such index pages centralise the maintenance of document lists and work around Google Groups bugs.
