Photos from SITE08

by | Sunday, March 16, 2008

Matt has Flickrd photos from SITE08. Some of these photos are taken by me, but the rules are that the owner of the camera automatically gets the bragging rights 🙂 and since I didn’t take my camera along, he takes credit for all the pictures. Given that a bunch of the photographs taken by me have huge amounts of camera shake, I am not sure that that is necessarily a bad thing. But there is one…

… shot of night-time Las Vegas I would like to lay claim on. This was taken from the 24th floor of the Riviera Hotel and Casino on our last evening there. I shot it through a glass window which reflected a chandelier that was behind me onto the dark night sky. That’s about as close to close encounters of the third kind as you can get!

Anyway check out the pictures, either as a slideshow or as a photoset on Flickr.

TPACK videos: A few new ones

I have come across some new TPACK related videos/podcasts (either on youtube or elsewhere) that I feel may be worth sharing. The first of them came as an email from Matt Townsley. He pointed me to these two videos by Janet Bowers of San Diego State University. In...

Rainbows in your backyard, how scary

We have been talking about misconceptions in my summer MAET classes and one of my students sent me this hilarious link. There is really nothing much to say... just see it for yourself. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3qFdbUEq5s[/youtube] Another video that I...

Looking for design in Barcelona

Readers of this blog know that I am always looking for examples of good / bad design (actually I am usually not looking for bad design - it just sort of comes and slaps me on the side of the head!). I thought I might share one with you today, that I found in my hotel...

Improv here, there, everywhere…

A few months ago I wrote about Professor R. K. Joshi (here and here). He was, as I said in the piece, maybe the single greatest influence on my role as a teacher. I had mentioned that R.K. loved absurdity and play. I was reminded of this when I read about this group...

Exciting!! Edupunk refresher, hybrid PhD & more…

A few weeks ago I had posted about the hybrid Ph.D. program that we recently announced. There has been terrific interest in this program (but we are still looking for more people - so keep the emails and questions coming). As we were reviewing the various emails we...

A boy and his windmill

The Daily Show featured William Kamkwamba, a Malawian high school student who built a windmill by looking at pictures in a book! I have always been a fan of jugaad, the idea of indigenous creativity using the detritus that seems to be a function of our modern world....

3 pieces of wisdom, one muddled conclusion

Just came up with this in response to something Leigh had said on Facebook... thought it ought to be saved for the future: Great fools think that birds of a feather seldom differ together! I wonder what it means? Can you identify the three nuggets of wisdom that went...

Bittersweet Thanksgiving

The recent events in Mumbai have thrown a pall over the Thanksgiving break. That said, this is a moment to celebrate friends and family. Let us spare a moment for all the innocent victims and their friends and family. Happy Thanksgiving! This image, above, captures...

Corona virus: Silver lining? For learning?

Corona virus: Silver lining? For learning?

A week or so ago, Yong Zhao reached out to Chris Dede, Curt Bonk, Scott McLeod and me with the question: What would happen to our global and local educational systems, if the Corona virus outbreak lasted for a year? We met a week ago (via zoom, what else) to discuss...
