What’s the future of Twitter? 

Twitter stock has recently suffered as a result of weak earnings (and related confidence), so I've been reflecting on the value I place in it versus Facebook. Everyone's surely different, but I figure one way for me to assess it is to evaluate the differences between the list of my Facebook friends and the accounts …

Learning with Apple Live 

Apple's live events keep evolving, and I would love to be able to use their "live broadcasting" toolkit—essentially turning their website into a media-rich live blog of the event. Here's a screenshot of what today's Apple Watch-focused event looked like:   The key features of this mode of presentation are: Live video of the main presentation—which is …

Techitecture, The Emergence of 

My involvement in Teacher College's Learning Theater project makes me appreciate how fast-evolving audio/video technologies (or better: display/capture/collaboration technologies) challenge traditional architecture. Our project feels like "techitecture"—a combination of technology and architectural design and development. (And I'm curious that, having imagined this fanciful term, I have not found it used before in this way.) The fit and function of …

Gymnasiums as “Learning Theaters”? 

If you had a high school gymnasium, how would you turn it into a technology-friendly space for teaching, learning, and research? As part of the Gottesman Libraries team, I'm currently involved in developing the concept of a "learning theater" — both programmatically and architecturally. Pulling this concept out of primordial soup of imagination (if such a space already …

Advice for a young designer 

A friend of mine is wondering how to navigate undergraduate-level design classes (and perhaps ultimately a major or minor). More specifically, he is weighing the difference between "graphic design" and "web design"—and he asked for my thoughts. Firstly, it matters what kind of work you imagine doing after college... but let's say that you could …

Opening Up Museums 

I really enjoy Nina Simon's blog, and her recent talk is especially exciting: Museum 2.0: Opening Up Museums: My TEDxSantaCruz Talk. With an upcoming year-long exhibition highlighting the 125-year history of Teachers College, EdLab designers are focused on eliciting "audience" participation in our exhibition environment – three floors of Russell Hall (nearly 30,000 sq. ft.!). …

World of 100 

Information about the world as if it were a village of 100 people -- a simple design and a powerful effect. Nice work Toby Ng!


Reposted from The Data Art Review. Written by Jihii Jolly.

Even when statistics are clearly represented as visuals, understanding data is difficult. We're not so naturally inclined to to understand statistics in relation to our personal, daily lives. An emerging method of providing people with the tools to achieve that contextual understanding is through interactive graphics, such as the 9/11+ME project (which uses Facebook or …

Designing Learning Futures 

Here I am giving an Ignite-style talk two weeks ago at The Digital Media and Learning Conference in Long Beach, CA. It was my first time (both giving this style talk and attending the DML conference), and I really liked the format—20 slides auto-advancing every 15 seconds for 5 minutes. They're supposed to be fun and …

The New Coffee Trailer at Columbia University 

It clashes with surrounding buildings with a modern defiance. It serves the community in deeply important and practical ways. And its cold, metallic surfaces reflect orange sunsets with a surprising warmness. What is it? A coffee trailer in New York City, of course. But also: it's Columbia University's new $200 million interdisciplinary science building at the intersection of …

Who are you designing for? 

I ran across this interesting frog design deck while reviewing trends in design research – a summary of the Design Research Conference 2010 (DRC) last May. A quick glimpse at the slides provides a snapshot of how designers continue to grapple with user needs, and how they respond with both simple and sensible strategies (and …

Design Process Essentials 

What do you value in a design process? At EdLab, our teams often have great latitude in structuring our design processes – indeed, we can change almost every aspect of project management, from inception to final outcomes (and ongoing documentation and reporting). As a consequence, the teams I am a part of – creating diverse …
