Foxconn will replace some of its workers with 1 million robots in three years http://news.xinhuanet.com/english2010/china/2011-07/30/c_131018764.htm

One more reason that our education system needs to stop focusing on content acquisition and standardized test taking.

#AAEEBL11 session "Threshold behaviors" - do students use e-Portfolios if they are not required to do so? Data shows that when instructor give feedback, students cross this threshold. By Howard Wach at Bronx Community College - https://bcc-cuny.digication.com/portfolio/directory.digi. This is amazing data to show significance in how students can become integrative and life long learners.

The Google logo is pretty cool today. And if you grab it with your cursor, you can move it around.

I hope that lecture based learning will be largely replaced. Content acquisition has always been a heavy focus in education, whereas metacognition (learning how to learn) is often ignored.

Here is a link to a pretty interesting experiment by Rick Garlikov, http://www.garlikov.com/Soc_Meth.html (some more write up on http://www.helium.com/items/2077570-the-socratic-method-of-teaching). He taught binary arithmetic to a group of 3rd graders in 25 minutes by only asking questions. Pretty cool!
