TONY BATES: This man is amazing!!! We need more like him, and I am glad that he will indeed keep on writing.
This is a great post to read from start to finish, but of course I have to single out what he says here about MOOCs. Hey MOOC-meisters: you should listen to what this man says. He knows of what he is speaking. So, please, listen!
quote And then there’s MOOCs. I can’t express adequately just how pissed off I am about MOOCs – not the concept, but all the hubris and nonsense that’s been talked and written about them. At a personal level, it was as if 45 years of work was for nothing. All the research and study I and many others had done on what makes for successful learning online were totally ignored, with truly disastrous consequences in terms of effective learning for the vast majority of participants who took MOOCs from the Ivy League universities. Having ignored online learning for nearly 20 years, Stanford, MIT and Harvard had to re-invent online learning in their own image to maintain their perceived superiority in all things higher educational. And the media fell for it, hook, line and sinker. This is a battle I no longer want to fight – but it needs fighting. But my reaction did make me wonder, am I just an old man resisting the future? And that has definitely left a mark.
Anyway, read the whole post - it is heartfelt and inspiring, and I wish us all such a fine 75th birthday as he has had! I know that his is well-earned!

People with adult ADHD need friends, just like everyone else. And there are even some bonuses to having friends when it comes to managing your ADHD symptoms. Here's Liz Prager, author of the "Living with Adult ADHD" blog, with more on that.

Die Gegner von Videospielen behaupten gerne, dass gewalttätige Spiele aggressiv machen. Eine Studie aber besagt: Nicht der Inhalt, sondern die Spielmechanik ist schuld.

The Arcanum Doors Open to Private Beta!
Big news! Masters are now selecting their first Apprentices into www.TheArcanum.com  ! +Varina Patel  just selected 20 Apprentices, who are walking through the mysterious doors into the magical academy :)   

Now, this is early beta, so we are going very slow and observing & measuring everything. So we do certainly ask for your patience, but the amazing Masters here are 100% committed to helping you find your own personal, artistic path.

This is a totally new way to learn and get new skills. No system like this has ever been built before — a dynamic and organic system of truly personal learning in a self-replicating network. This first group of people are true believers, and we look forward to creating something that we feels changes the world. Thank you so much for joining us so we can change the world together.

Below, you can see a screenshot of the awesome tool that the Masters are using to select their Apprentices.  You may also be able to look close and see that we're using something very cool called "Sort by Passion" — this screenshot is only showing a subset of the Apprentices, but you get the idea.

If you've already signed up for +The Arcanum, here is a to-do list! :)

1)  Log in and connect it to your Google+ account! Log in at http://thearcanum.com/app/site/index 

2) Go update your Application and be sure to be descriptive on why you'd like to join The Arcanum.  Don't be afraid to be open and talk more about how you like to learn, how you may enjoy interacting with other Apprentices, your goals in photography, etc. etc.

3) Pop over and see more about the first few Levels (including the new videos!) at http://thearcanum.com/levels-photography-discipline/ 

We are always open to feedback, and so interested to see what you think.  Again, thanks to everyone and we look forward to what is coming next! :)

Kids’ Earliest Memories Might Be Earlier than They Think

The very earliest childhood memories might begin even earlier than anyone realized – including the rememberer, his or her parents and memory researchers.

Four- to 13-year-olds in upstate New York and Newfoundland, Canada, probed their memories when researchers asked: “You know, some kids can remember things that happened to them when they were very little. What is the first thing you can remember? How old were you at that time?” The researchers then returned a year or two later to ask again about earliest memories – and at what age the children were when the events occurred.

Full article at http://goo.gl/iSpBpn.

The research is published in Developmental Psychology and Memory. (all full access paywall)

Research: “Your Earliest Memory May Be Earlier Than You Think: Prospective Studies of Children’s Dating of Earliest Childhood Memories.” by Wang, Qi; and Peterson, Carole in Developmental Psychology. doi:10.1037/a0036001

“Gender and emotion in everyday event memory” by Qi Wang in Memory. doi:10.1080/09658211.2012.743568

Image: Childhood amnesia refers to our inability to remember events from our first years of life. Until now, cognitive psychologists estimated the so-called childhood amnesia offset at 3.5 years, the average age of our very earliest memory, the authors noted. The image shows game jacks and a ball, a game often played by young children. This image is for illustrative purposes only and is not connected to the research. Credit: Lauren Hayward.
