"At Nixon McInness, social business consultants based in Brighton, employees can place tennis balls in one of two buckets - marked "happy" and "unhappy" - when they head home. This happiness barometer acts as an early warning system so that any looming problems can be identified and addressed early on."

As an online educator, I look at gaming technology and immediately see learning opportunities. At a conference in 1996 I listened to Ray Kurszweil describe a future where AI enabled holographic avatars would be personal mentors and master teachers able to meet the individual needs of each and every learner. It was a vision of ultimate differentiation that would allow everyone to meet there maximum potential.


This 3-D gaming announcement feels like another step into that future.

Veronique Maes's insight:

A Basque colleague during INCLUDE conference in Pamplona was surprised to hear that we are not saving West-Vlaams ( one of the many Flemish dialects). Indeed, the young children are not thaught the language and their young parents are not using it to talk to them. Some research work is done on the dialect but that will be the only capture we got in a couple of decades. Should we ?

Why Great Teachers Blog (and How You Can Get Started)

Why Great Teachers Blog (and How You Can Get Started) | WhatIbelieveworthtoshare | Scoop.it
For great educators, teaching is a calling more than an occupation. That’s why educators spend so much of their time not only teaching in and beyond the classroom, but also constantly learning themselves, exploring every avenue that can make them more effective (like using Twitter for professional development).


So why would they take the time to blog at all, much less regularly? And is it something every educator should consider? To find out, we asked six Milken Educators with regular blogs on different topics to share their insights. What we learned was that there is no one reason to blog, but myriad reasons and benefits for doing so.

I owe my start in online teaching and learning to the Milken Family Foundation.  Back in '95 I became a Milken National Educator.  The world changed. My access to information and ideas grew and my teaching spirit soared.  The MFF is still doing the good work!

While I didn't have the best experience with Google Glass myself, I've never said that it was not a good tool. I saw Google Glass promote this article on Google+, and by golly, it's worth a read. THIS is mobile learning at its finest. THIS is using technology used for the good of special abilities kids, specifically autistic kids. This article pushes all the right buttons for me. It's amazing what people can do with the right technology in their hands to make the world a better place! 

 

What do you think of this use of Google Glass/m-learning?
