Voting from the public has been extended to Monday! Please sign up and cast your vote for this. It's the only webcomic-related presentation submitted to SXSW this year.

My entry for SXSW Interactive 2012 is up for voting! Please visit the link and vote for it. As far as I know it's the only webcomic related entry this year and one of the few math education ones.

Description:

"Many students see math as an externality, obstructing engagement with the material. A solution is using student-generated contexts that rely on their cognitive space. This presentation deals with one type: visual metaphors. It begins with methods for discovery and current results, provides applications for the classroom, and ends with implications for game-based curricula.

Drawing elucidates visual metaphors; the images, tied to specific math concepts, provide rich documentation of conceptual translation processes. A "visual dictionary" reveals prevalent patterns. Two classroom applications are game design and comics. Games employ metaphors as interactive symbols to model systemic interrelations. Comics use a structured narrative with metaphors as storytelling vehicles.

Student-generated contexts provide a way to generalize Constructivist Theory to include process-oriented game design curricula. This is a significant advancement in its integration into overall pedagogical development."

I'm reaching out to more and more of the people who run Texas cons. It's great to meet so many of them.

For right now, I'm not going to upload any new photos to Google+ until they get their photo albums refined more. FB will continue to be used for that. I will, however, begin uploading videos here.

One feature they REALLY need is the ability to re-order photos in an album.

Great tea selection, HORRIBLE service. Stay away from Julie C - she is one of the worst salespeople. She didn't know the items she was selling (claiming something was dishwasher safe when it wasn't) and was pushy and rude. My mom, a big tea drinker, refuses to buy from Teavana because of her. The tea itself is pretty good, though. Just avoid Julie!
