A Place to Call Home: Where we live and why

A Place to Call Home: Where we live and why | KPL's Interesting Things | Scoop.it

16 February 2012 - 28 April 2012

Monday - Saturday 10am - 5pm, Tuesdays until 10pm


Gallery One, RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London W1B 1AD


Home is an essential part of us all. The houses, flats, tower blocks and estates that we live in are extensions of our everyday lives. They are practical places - buildings for us to eat or sleep in - yet for most, home is the most expensive thing that we ever buy, a complex thing offering a lifetime of investment and preoccupation.


This new RIBA exhibition, guest curated by Sarah Beeny, charts the story of the design and appeal of everyday homes in the UK. It explores the advent of mass building from the late 18th century, through to the present day via suburban expansion and post-war experiment.


It reveals the characteristics of a British obsession and the experiments that have shaped how and where we live.

Learning By Exploring, Organizing and Curating a Body of Information: Curatr

Robin Good: Curatr, an elearning platform built upon the idea of discovery through the curation and sense-making of existing information, has just released an updated version of its platform which you can check out here: http://www.curatr.co.uk/index2.php 

 

Live demo: http://www.curatr.co.uk/index2.php?view=demo 

 

Curatr allows professional trainers, experts, and teachers, as much as students to organize and curate information for the purpose of learning.

 

What I like very much is the Curatr promotional video, which says lots of true things about education and about the way we should carry it out in the future. The next-button-robot approach to information memorization needs to be replaced with a new approach: learning to understand how learners construct knowledge.

 

Curatr is about the construction of the scaffolding that allows people to learn and to find the resources that should help them best learn what they are interested into. 

 

Promising. Insightful. 8/10

Why we love Instagram, Hipstamatic, and the lo-fi photo trend | Macworld

Why we love Instagram, Hipstamatic, and the lo-fi photo trend | Macworld | KPL's Interesting Things | Scoop.it
Why are the dingy, ill-colored, sometimes washed out images created by lo-fi photo filter apps so appealing? To understand that, you have to accept something very fundamental about the nature of photography.

Harness leading-edge technology for optimum business efficiency and reduced operational costs

Harness leading-edge technology for optimum business efficiency and reduced operational costs | KPL's Interesting Things | Scoop.it

In today’s digital marketplace, enterprises across the globe harness leading-edge technology for optimum business efficiency and reduced operational costs. The huge potentials of online markets are best realised through effective consumer portals which successfully combine information, community and commerce with the reliability and security required for e-business operations.


According to IBM, portals are next-generation desktops, delivering e-business applications over the Web to all kinds of client devices in order to form a unified, collaborative workplace. It is, therefore, natural that businesses around the world leverage the power of the Internet to launch B2B (business to business) & B2C (business to consumer) portals for increased revenues and improved relationships with partners, vendors and customers.


While B2B is primarily concerned with supply chain management and plays a vital role in connecting manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, B2C sites sell products, services and information directly to end-users.
