Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud | Video on TED.com

Onstage at TED2013, Sugata Mitra makes his bold TED Prize wish: Help me design the School in the Cloud, a learning lab in India, where children can explore and learn from each other -- using resources and mentoring from the cloud.
Eric Pomert's insight:

I felt schools were kind of crazy when I was a kid, but I enjoyed the actual learning activities and independent time with SOME of the homework.  I wonder what course I would've taken if I had heard this talk when I was a rebellious, vegetarian, Woody Allen-fan 12-year-old.

TIME-LINE Clock by You Haeyon

TIME-LINE Clock by You Haeyon | Visionaries | Scoop.it

The TIME-LINE only has an hour hand and its shape is linear and simple, and there is no surrounding frame. An LED light point set within the central circle rotates to indicate the minute. A GPS timer in the body constantly rotates the hour hand and the minute indicator so as to show the present time. Fixed and detachable magnets on the base allow the clock to be attached to any object.


Via Deloste
Eric Pomert's insight:

I love the idea of removing any frame of familiarity, since the frame is just something we put there for some kind of comfort or convenience.
