Check out this new search engine called Kiddle. It is a visual search engine designed for children. What makes it different?

1. Most search results provide a large thumbnail. This image will help children differentiate some results.

2. The font size. Kiddle uses a large size of Ariel, a font that helps with readability.

3. Sites are filtered and are family friendly.

4. Kiddle is privacy oriented. No data is collected and logs are deleted after 24 hours.

If you work with young students, or have young children at home this search engine is worth checking out.

Translating 8 of the Media's Code Words to Reveal Their Imperial Mindset | Adam Johnson | AlterNet.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

"If thought corrupts language," George Orwell once reasoned, "language can also corrupt thought." This is how the immoral can seem banal, the cruel sanitized and the trite profound. In his time these nuggets of discourse included, "bestial atrocities," "iron heel," "bloodstained tyranny," and "free peoples of the world, stand shoulder to shoulder."

Today these terms seem corny, foreign or both, but in the late 1940s they passed for insight and conventional wisdom, and one had to more or less parrot them in order to be taken seriously. Orwell lamented the hollowness of these human propaganda conduits, which we generally call “pundits”:

One often has a curious feeling that one is not watching a live human being [say these terms] but some kind of dummy: a feeling which suddenly becomes stronger at moments when the light catches the speaker's spectacles and turns them into blank discs which seem to have no eyes behind them.

This tedium isn't just an offense to originality, but to the fabric of democracy itself. Through repetition and folksy appeal, oft-repeated expressions become not only intellectually corrosive, but political weapons. They allow, as he put it, "the words to chose the meaning, not the other way around."

And so it still goes in 2016. Here are eight toxic euphemisms American empire uses to numb us to its brutality.

Kathy Klotz-Guest's curator insight, February 24, 2016 2:09 PM
With all the talk about 2016 being the year that virtual reality finally achieves a mass market audience, there is another part to the opportunity for this nascent technology in any commercialized form: how will companies use it for business storytelling?  As this article points out, we’re just at the beginning of commercialized VR. A criticism of VR has been that traditional experiences put the user at the center of the action; consequently, VR can be isolating as an individual experience. So how can VR enable social experiences that bring people together, build community and help enrich the brand? While this article doesn’t completely answer this question, it does point to interesting uses of VR for company films and immersive experiences as a new wave of multi-sensory business storytelling with lots of potential (note: this specific article is focused on one company, Visualise, and how they use it).  It's a very interesting future to think about for both customer experiences and storytelling.

Today I would say that to write, a woman must have a space of her own and wifi.

Le Transmedia Storytelling représente le fait de raconter une histoire cohérente éclatée sur plusieurs plateformes médiatiques dans le but de créer une expérience globale. L’objectif est de déployer un univers cohérent où chaque élément narratif vient enrichir les autres. Ce procédé permet de multiplier les points d’entrée dans l’univers et ainsi toucher une plus grande audience.

Photography’s Blue Period Gets Its First Major Show in the US | Claire Voon | HyperAllergic.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

In 1842, British scientist Sir John Herschel experimented with the effect of light on iron compounds, inventing a process to produce the blue-tinted prints we know as cyanotypes. While one of the most widely used photographic processes at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century, the cyanotype faded largely from popular use during World War I as black-and-white images were increasingly perceived as more fashionable.

 

Often downplayed within the history of photography, the blue images finally have their first major museum exhibition in the US at the Worcester Art Museum, organized in collaboration with Clark University. Cyanotypes: Photography’s Blue Period explores 150 years of the cyanotype, examining the many ways around 40 artists have experimented with it to create expressive works from a process cherished for its speed and ease — characteristics that also caused many to fail to appreciate them.

The children puffed out their chests and mimicked drama teacher Melissa Richardson, rehearsing their big, booming “rhino voices.”

Giant steps, giant steps, big and bold!” the kindergartners yelled in unison in a classroom at Westlawn Elementary in Fairfax County.

In groups, the children were then cast as animals and bugs: Big, stomping rhinos; delicate lady bugs skittering across the tile; leaping kangaroos and tiny frogs. All made their way to the classroom’s imaginary “water hole,” formed with blue tape.

This giggly play session actually was a serious math lesson about big and small and non-standard measurements. Dreamed up by Richardson and kindergarten teacher Carol Hunt, it aims to get the children to think of animal steps as units of measurement, using them to mark how many it takes each animal to get from a starting line to the target.

Teachers call such melding of art and traditional subjects “art integration,” and it’s a new and increasingly popular way of bringing the arts into the classroom. Instead of art as a stand-alone subject, teachers are using dance, drama and the visual arts to teach a variety of academic subjects in a more engaging way.

Art and Math and Science, Oh My! | Sailor Mercury | Medium.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Growing up, I had two favorite things.

I loved art.

And I loved science.

I was always made to feel that these two interests were unrelated. I had art class at school. I had science class at school. Sometimes I did watercolors on the weekend. Sometimes I taught myself programming on the weekend.

And when it came time to decide what to study and what to do with my life, I felt forced to choose between the two. When I was looking into applying to art schools, the art schools I was interested in had no math classes higher than college algebra. Meanwhile, I was set on learning both life drawing and multivariable calculus.

I ended up going to engineering school at MIT. I continued to draw in my notebooks while listening to lectures, at night, on the weekends. We live in a culture that values specialization, that values honing in on one thing particularly, and I always felt weird about not spending my weekends on programming side projects, like many of my classmates. I felt weird about liking two very different things equally.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 17, 2016 12:28 PM

Last fall I was at a conference and approached one of the speakers. There was a nice cross-fertilization happening between his work on flow and my work in storytelling. When I mentioned business storytelling he said, "Oh, all those lies we tell ourselves." Hmmm. 


So I tried again thinking academic credentials would help,. I said, "No, I'm a Phd Folklorist..."


"Oh", he interrupted, "All about those untrue myths and fake stuff." 


OK -- within 30 seconds this jerk insulted me twice and told me a lot about himself. And thank heavens this happened so I wouldn't waste any more of my time.


Maybe you've had a similar experience, which is why I curated this article. I really appreciate the story told at the beginning of the post about how the client and the business storyteller had 2 different definitions of what a story is. This completely derailed the project.


The rest of the article explains what storytelling really is, and I like what the author, Patrick Moreau, has to say. He even covers the issue that not everything is a story! And read the comments to the post, too. There's a great conversation going on.


Let's get the story straight so we can educate our clients better, surface buried assumptions, and have more successful engagements.


Story on!
