Swiss Art to Go

On Issuu.com I "follow" Swiss Heimatschutz/Patrimoine publications. In the new volume (4/2013) p. 31, there is a story about a mobile app, Swiss Art To Go.  On the app's web page, there is this very interesting video, from its YouTube channel:

Swiss Art To Go, the encyclopedia of swiss architecture, is an application of the Society for Swiss History of art. Swiss Art To Go (SATG) is available in german, french and italian on the App Store, the Google Play Store and the Windows Store.

We've long been interested in morphing videos (Van Gogh self-portraits), Faces of Women, etc.) - there's something magical about  one thing changing magically into another, "before our very eyes".  I'd never seen the process applied to buildings.

Posting about Flipboard

I've a new blog post on the OSC IB Blogs site about using Flipboard as a web content curation tool.

"As you begin to imagine how Flipboard could serve your own teaching or learning, think of its “pushme-pullyou” possibilities."

Click through to the site, and explore the other blogs there, too.

Education's Death Valley

My friend Tanja Galetti (Librarian at Hong Kong Academy) tweeted this Ken Robinson video a few hours ago.  It's relatively new, and needs to be seen!

FILMED APR 2013 • POSTED MAY 2013 • TED Talks Education
"Sir Ken Robinson outlines 3 principles crucial for the human mind to flourish -- and how current education culture works against them. In a funny, stirring talk he tells us how to get out of the educational "death valley" we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibility."
