Leadership – Education – Technology – Other Interesting Stuff

Want to take an insider’s look at creativity at IDEO? IDEO is an “award-winning global design firm that takes a human-centered, design-based approach to helping organizations in the public and private sectors innovate and grow.” This short video shows the redesign of the shopping cart. At about 5:12 in the video, there is a statement about “enlightened trial and error.” How does that relate to our classrooms? Our lives? You might also want to check out this project learning article on Edutopia.

Even the title sounds great – Algebra Nation – a joint effort from the University of Florida and Study Edge to help Florida’s students prepare for the end-of-course Algebra 1 exam. From the sample videos I perused, it doesn’t seem like you have to be a student in Florida to benefit. This will be an app for students to use 24/7.

For those of you working with video, this link came this week and I wanted to make sure you could take advantage of the free downloads – 20 clips a day for 7 no 6 days – video clips, sound effects, looping backgrounds, music tracks, AE templates.
