What makes an award-winning photo? Join us in a Google Hangout On Air as a panel of top photographers in the Association for Communication Excellence (ACE) share some of their prize-winning photos, and let you in on secrets to capturing contest-winning images.

Our panel of photo experts will discuss equipment, lighting, exposure, and composition; but also those “intangibles” that make a photo truly great. Our guests will also share their thoughts on how to select photos for contest entry, and when the shoe is on the other foot, how to judge photos.

The Photographers:
Edwin Remsberg, University of Maryland
David Hansen, University of Minnesota 
Stephen Patton, University of Kentucky

We hope you will join us for the live hangout. The webinar will also be available for later viewing on Youtube; but being there live will give you the chance to ask questions of our panel of expert photographers.

Why Wearables Are the New Gateways to Human Knowledge

The use of Google Glass and other wearable devices in higher education is still experimental, but the technology is opening up exciting new possibilities for teaching and learning.
http://campustechnology.com/articles/2014/10/16/why-wearables-are-the-new-gateways-to-human-knowledge.aspx

As I noted in our first group video conference, there are definitely strong reactions to those wearing Google Glass that we need to acknowledge. Here is an editorial from The Week editor William Falk:

"In these grim times, there is some hope for our species: Google Glass may not be inevitable after all. Mat Honan of Wired, the bible of the technorati, spent a year trying out Google Glass, a futuristic pair of eyeglasses equipped with a voice-activated wireless computer and camera and a tiny Internet display in one lens. The trial didn’t go well. Honan reports back that the Glass’s ostentatious techiness—and its ability to photograph or video anything the wearer wants—made him the subject of derision and threats wherever he went. People “talk about you openly,” Honan marvels; he got used to hearing himself called a Glasshole. And despite some “cool” features, Honan found Glass “more novelty than utility”—just another way of “documenting rather than experiencing.”
You need not be a Luddite to be heartened by the Glass rebellion. It suggests we haven’t yet been seduced into surrendering the last vestiges of privacy and spontaneity. In recent months, young techies have been publicly questioning the toll that constant connectivity has taken on their relationships, their attention spans, and their ability to sit quietly with their thoughts. Burnouts are treating themselves to Internet “holidays” or checking into retreats promising “digital detox.” Last week, Web journalist David Sessions published a mea culpa in which he called much of Web journalism “stupid and worthless,” saying it “exists simply to produce the act of clicking.” His chastened advice: “New tools should be scrutinized intensely and skeptically, as should the people who stand to gain vast new forms of power and wealth when they are widely adopted.” Wise words, which I immediately shared with everyone I know via the Internet."

I've been wearing a Fitbit for several months now.  It's a great introduction to wearable technology.  Anyone else wearing one out there in this group?  I find it gives an interesting sort of "bio-feedback" to my day (and night.)  For example, I find myself taking the stairs rather than the elevator, because I know my Fitbit is watching. also, I try to get more sleep because it's tracking that, too. Some interesting other sidebars include concern over others tracking your location, although I'm not clear how that works.
