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."

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.
