Visual literacy and art history: 500 Years of Women in Art

After my last post on revisiting quotes that support visual and multimedia literacy, I thought I'd share this video I found on YouTube that provides a glimpse of women's faces that morph from one to the next, giving a visual, non-verbal understanding of how women have been depicted in art for 500 years. This clip would be a great intro for an art history or humanities class, as it sets the stage for further discussion about the topic.

Expo '67: The Future Past

When I was a young girl, I went with my family to see Expo '67. I was sure the future was going to happen soon! I was very impressed by the picture phone and other futuristic exhibits in the Telephone Pavilion.

The Library of Canada has an interactive website about Expo '67". It is worth checking out!

Here are more videoclips from Expo '67:

Ubicomp video: Place Map

This video clip is an overview of the PlaceMap research from the University of Washington. The researchers are figuring out ways that WiFi can be used for ubiquitous/mobile computing, as GPS systems do not work indoors. The key questions that the researchers have regarding their work are as follows:
  • How do we ramp up the database of existing WiFi spots to increase coverage for ubiquitous computing devices and applications?
  • How can we draw in external collaborators from the community?
  • How do we get people to actually use the system and learn what it is good for?
