Pablo was onto something! To be found working in my studio has me feeling quite inspired. This pattern is part of the new creative work I’m doing in Lilla Rogers’ terrific class in surface design and illustration. Check out some updates on my website as well. joancunningham.squarespace.com

Keith Hampson, PhD

The speed with which innovations in technology move from inception to adoption by individuals continues to pick-up; it takes years rather than decades.
In the midst of these changes, it’s useful to take a moment to consider how consumer technologies interact with education technology.

Don Gorges

__Thanks Keith. One example that “more talented people are applying themselves to crafting new and better education-specific technologies” can be seen at Ryerson’s Digital Media Zone where the start-up teams are working with enabling technologies that can and are crossing-over / overlapping these 9 industry categories listed. _ http://digitalmediazone.ryerson.ca/teams/?home-sector-selector=education-2#education-2 _

Don Gorges Don Gorges __I followed your posting of a Marie’s quote, to re-watch the video – and to thinking it would be fantastic to read the Talks at ones own pace. Selected a quote too _ [9:38] “More often than not , we, everywhere, but particularly in Education, become prisoners of former conventions that may have out dated the need so those we are meant to serve. [9:48] We all fall into that trap, but the secret to successful change lies in tackling foreign territory with a fresh perspective” less 6d ago

Don Gorges Don Gorges Thanks for asking, George. I should’ve read the reference material you have collected for insights, however, my instinctive response is that none of these 4 visuals offer a meaningful conceptual-metaphorical connection to the topic of “scholars’ participation in online social networks to share, reflect upon, critique, improve, validate, and otherwise develop their scholarship” – although #4 has elements of graphic relevance. less 7d ago

Don Gorges Don Gorges __Selected takeaway: “It’s important to bring design to life by giving people many examples of how it works—not just the principles but also examples throughout the [insert scenario here] where colleagues are exhibiting design-thinking behavior. What helped us be successful with [any group] was that we did have these proof points where [they] could see the successes their colleagues were having. As a result, [they were] quite keen to engage in this new approach. [-] We’ve learned to help fuel the team with relatable examples of success for sources both internal and external.” Catherine Courage less 8d ago
