Never turn a page again

This video is only 1 minute 25 seconds and yet, by the end of it I had forgotten what it was meant to be about. Lost in learning! Lost in intrigue. Lost in the wonder of all that was occurring. It’s all physics. It’s a video which makes people want to know and find things out. On top of that, it is funny. It’s a carefully planned, well thought out , high impact lesson. It would have taken brainstorming, discussion, trial runs. There would have been a feedback loop and collaboration. It’s a video which arouses a lot of curiosity and engages the audience. A one minute video can do a lot!

Google Translate for Teachers

Lex Prin is very popular on YouTube and he only put this clip up on 23/9 and he is already getting to his 50,000 views. Living proof you can teach, learn , share and connect from anywhere , even your car. We have mobile devices and connectivity. The thought , though, you could use your mobile phone to rewrite and filter your thoughts into something which is more socially acceptable is a great one. One we all wish for. Teachers are not  the only people employed in a position where they have to sometimes rephrase what they are thinking to couch it in a more dulcet way. Why can’t our phones do this for us? Why isn’t there an app for that? We have all sorts of apps for productivity, time management, learning, skills development. We now need apps for personal and social capability! I thank the Teachers Registration Board of South Australia for sharing this video on my Facebook feed this morning.

Android needs to toughen up

Enough of the Icecream sandwich, Lollipop, Eclair, Jellybean. Next it’ll be Raspberry soufflé or Lemon sorbet. *facepalm. Could just as easily be *face plant. Time for Android to toughen up and beef up its names. What’s wrong with Apfelstrudel 3.8 with Eisbein enhancements or Kartoffelpuffer 3.2 with Kransky software and AntiBratwurst protection? Androids should be Sauerkraut enabled with a Torten spyware suite and Browserentwicklertools. I don’t want to be a Jellybean-Nutzer. I want to be a Strudel-Besitzer with Jägerschnitzel TV and RindsrouladenMobilfunkverbindung. Okay. I am going to stop. Right there. Android? Are you listening?

Never miss an opportunity

knot Couldn’t resist! Just had to share this. Came up on my Twitter feed from a contact. Educationally speaking it’s a good ploy to come up with something completely different and amusing. It can set a good atmosphere for learning .Technology allows us to come up with these quirky ideas.

Eddie Izzard on Technology

Yes, the first thing you do when you get the instructions is throw them out the window! Or, as one of our technicians put it, if there is a button to click, people will click it. People can behave in some very odd ways with technology and it is funny. It is just the way they interact with it. The thing about instructions, though, is they are often enlightening and helpful. If you read them before you engage with the software or hardware , you often avoid so many headaches. People are reluctant to do that and so I suppose the software and hardware designers are going to have to come up with a way of teaching users the absolutely necessary steps BEFORE they actually get to play with their devices! That is a technology challenge in itself. Thorn2200 has done an amazing job with his lego interpretation of Eddie Izzard’s comedy sequence. His lego rendition of it just adds to the humour and he is obviously someone with some good creative ability and patience. You just never know what you are going to see on the Net. This is  a really good example of an original text response and how you could do that instead of writing it.
