KEEP IT HUMAN

(one+ magazine) I have always hated online courses. Even though I’ve been a Net enthusiast since before there was a Net, I have never appreciated when intimate, real-life encounters are relegated to the digital realm. Education is a particularly human-to-human transmission. Students learn as much from watching their professors think in real time as they do hearing whatever facts and ideas come out of them.

(Jeff Hurt) Putting People And Learning Before Places And Spaces

“Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah blah. Blah, blah, blah!”

The words fall from the speaker’s mouth to listener’s ears.
The more the speaker shares, the more the listeners quickly forget.
Here’s a truth: Content covered by the speaker does not automatically translate into content learned by the audience.

Same Old, Same Old

For the past 50 years, the vast majority of our conference education has remained the same.

Testing Can Be Useful for Students and Teachers, Promoting Long-Term Learning

(Science Daily) Pop quiz! Tests are good for: (a) Assessing what you’ve learned; (b) Learning new information; (c) a & b; (d) None of the above.

The correct answer?

According to research from psychological science, it’s both (a) and (b) – while testing can be useful as an assessment tool, the actual process of taking a test can also help us to learn and retain new information over the long term and apply it across different contexts.

Scientists Discover Ways to Optimize Light Sources for Vision: Tuning Lighting Devices Could Save Billions

(ScienceDaily)  Vision researchers at Barrow Neurological Institute have made a groundbreaking discovery into the optimization of light sources to human vision. By tuning lighting devices to work more efficiently with the human brain, the researchers believe billions of dollars in energy costs could be saved.

Endless Original Music: Computer Program Creates Music Based On Emotions

(Science Daily) A group of researchers from the University of Granada (UGR) has developed Inmamusys, a software programme that can create music in response to emotions that arise in the listener. By using Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques, the programme means that original, copyright-free and emotion-inspiring music can be played continuously.

Now the Mobile Phone Goes Emotional

(Science Daily) ForcePhone is a mobile synchronous haptic communication system. During phone calls, users can squeeze the side of the device and the pressure level is mapped to vibrations on the recipient?s device. Computer scientists from University of Helsinki indicate that an additional haptic channel of communication can be integrated into mobile phone calls using a pressure to vibrotactile mapping with local and remote feedback. The pressure/vibrotactile messages supported by ForcePhone are called pressages.

Never Forget a Face(book): Memory for Online Posts Beats Faces and Books

(ScienceDaily) People's memory for Facebook posts is strikingly stronger than their memory for human faces or sentences from books, according to a new study.

The findings shed light on how our memories favour natural, spontaneous writing over polished, edited content, and could have wider implications for the worlds of education, communications and advertising.
