PracTICE: Creativity Examples With ThingLink

PracTICE: Creativity Examples With ThingLink | 21st century learning | Scoop.it

Creativity: Often I get asked from people if "Creativity" can get learned and even some say that it can't get learned (BTW: that are the people who don't have creativity)...

.

 

There are a multitude of tools which WE could use to foster the creativity of the learners, such as “Story Telling“, coding with Scratch and other programs, comics, and interactive images with links and videos such as “ThingLink“, which I will present here with some practical examples.

How 3-D printing will radically change the world

How 3-D printing will radically change the world | 21st century learning | Scoop.it
The rise of 3-D printing will make life as we know it today barely recognizable in 50 to 75 years. But it's not the Jetsons. Not yet.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 30, 2014 3:16 AM

From the article: "3-D printing technology is advancing at a staggering rate. American designers are now working on 3-D printed cars, while in China andHolland, 3-D printers are building entire houses. The first 3-D printed hamburger was recently created in England, heralding the possibility of a man-made food supply."


But...


The hype over 3-D printing, say technology experts, ignores the potential problems it will create. One significant problem is the legality and ethical ramifications of widespread public use. Right now, additive manufacturing (the technical term for 3-D printing) is in its "Wild West" phase, meaning, the laws have not yet caught up with the technology.

 

An example of this is 3-D printed guns. Last year, blueprints for a 3-D-printable gun, The Liberator, were posted online and downloaded some 100,000 times before the State Department ordered them taken down.


So...it's going to be a while before you can use a 3D printer to print you some new followers on social media networks...but watch this space!

Empathy for Social Exclusion Involves the Sensory-Discriminative Component of Pain

Empathy for Social Exclusion Involves the Sensory-Discriminative Component of Pain | 21st century learning | Scoop.it

Recent research has shown that experiencing events that represent a significant threat to social bonds activates a network of brain areas associated with the sensory-discriminative aspects of pain (Kross et al., 2011).


In the present study we investigated whether the same brain areas are involved when witnessing social exclusion threats experienced by others. Using a within-subject design, we show that an ecologically valid experience of social exclusion recruits areas coding the somatosensory components of physical pain (posterior insular cortex, and secondary somatosensory cortex). Furthermore, we show that this pattern of activation not only holds for directly experienced social pain, but also during empathy for social pain.


==================

subgenual cingulate cortex is the only

brain area conjointly active during empathy

for physical and social pain.

=======


Finally, we report that subgenual cingulate cortex is the only brain area conjointly active during empathy for physical and social pain. This supports recent theories that affective processing and homeostatic regulation are at the core of empathic responses.

Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education | 21st century learning | Scoop.it
While Apple and Google are fighting a FUD war for the hearts and minds of K-12 campuses, there's one area of education that neither has been able to penetrate with success: higher ed. Specifically, I'm referring to the conglomerate of colleges and universities across the US (and likely abroad).

Antisocial Teenagers Unable to Empathize

Antisocial Teenagers Unable to Empathize | 21st century learning | Scoop.it

Antisocial behavior in teens is worsening as their usage of social media, TV and games increases.


They become immune to how others feel and cannot sympathize with them. A recent study set out to find a connection between antisocial teenagers and their inability to empathize. Researchers found a link to regions of the brain that are used to process information and control impulses. When these brain activity centers are underdeveloped, it creates an inability to show empathy.

I've heard a lot about SMAR but never really taken the time to look into it. It might be time now that I'm looking at integrating more technology into my classroom. This model clearly supports technology and expects the use of it. 

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 2014 6:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.
