O Menino e o Mundo (The Boy and the World, 2013)

"'O menino e o mundo' é o segundo longa–metragem de animação de Alê Abreu, paulistano de 42 anos, também diretor de 'Garoto Cósmico' e autor/ilustrados de livros infantis. Para espectadores habituados a animações cada vez mais sofisticadas, aceleradas e dependentes de efeitos especiais, em um primeiro momento o filme pode causar estranheza por sua linguagem simples e econômica, ou por sua cadência tranquila, na contracorrente do mercado. Além disso, ele é atravessado por uma melancolia incomum no gênero, fazendo do olhar de uma criança veículo para uma inquietante crítica social–e confrontando o espectador com o desafio de pensar sobre aquilo que vê, coisa incomum no gênero."

(Luciano Trigo, 19/01/14)

Sofrendo com a falta do pai, um menino deixa sua aldeia e descobre um mundo fantástico dominado por máquinas–bichos e estranhos seres alienígenas. Uma inusitada animação com várias técnicas artísticas que retrata as questões do mundo moderno através do olhar de uma criança.

Suffering from the absence of a father, a boy leaves his village and discovers a fantasy world dominated by machines, animals and strange aliens. An unusual animation with various artistic techniques that portrays the issues of the modern world through the eyes of a child.

Global Technology Outlook 2013: Personalised Education

"An industry at the brink of transformation: The education industry is at the brink of an IT–enabled transformation. This transformation is driven by a demand for quality education that outstrips supply especially in the growth markets, misalignment between education and employment needs, and impatience with inefficiencies of education systems. For example, the government of Brazil is already funding students to go abroad because of a shortage of education infrastructure and quality educators. If growth continues to follow the existing trajectory, India will need about 800 more traditional universities than current levels today of about 350 universities.

Today, the most talked about application of technology to address these gaps is the advent of Massive Open Online Courses, or MOOC, which are growing rapidly. Several startups have emerged including Udacity, Khan Academy and Coursera, with millions of students enrolled across hundreåds of countries. Large amounts of new data are being created, which thus far is untapped for its potential.

What is Personalized Education: Education today is mainly delivered on a one size fits all basis. This is a key cause of the poor quality and inefficiencies associated with the industry. Educational institutions can learn from healthcare by drawing the parallels of doctors to educators, patients to learners, medicine/treatment to courses/learning, and payers to education loan providers. From a technology point of view, the use of electronic health data to form patient records, derive evidence, and provide patient–centric personalized healthcare can be extended to education, with the formulation of digital student records helping to inform and provide personalized learning pathways based on the capabilities of the learner and the desired outcomes.

Implications for the industry: The education industry is ripe for innovation, as new business models are instantiated on the emerging new sources of data, in particular the longitudinal learning data (tracking student information over multiple years in multiple schools). Predictive and prescriptive analytics will be applied to improve outcomes and efficiency. Clustering learners into groups, assigning new learners to existing clusters, identifying when a learner is deviating from a particular path are some possible outcomes. Prescriptive analytics would identify personalized learning pathways, track progress, and provide feedback to ultimately improve timely graduations and employability. Combined with industry demand data, supply estimates could be provided and targeted courses created with intakes tweaked to meet estimated demand. What will it take to succeed?: Ultimately there are many stakeholders who will be involved in improving education. This includes academic institutions, state education departments, students, learning management systems (LMS) and MOOC providers, government social service agencies and corporations. In order to achieve their often–shared goals, particularly to improve graduation and employment rates, they'll need to come together to create an open platform for sharing this data and insights from the analytics."

Guitar Pee: cheeky marketing stunt uses interactive urinal guitar

"Guitar Pee is a urinal equipped with sensors that plays music when someone pees on it. The different strings play different electric sounds depending on the aim of the stream, and at the end of your session you can even send an 'MPee3' straight to your phone to share your moment. Clearly, this isn't a concept for the ladies but you can try to woo them with your song even if you don't have a clue how to play a real guitar (they don't have to know the source of your craft). After all, the Guitar Pee tagline is 'Music. We know it comes from everywhere.' We guess it's better to hear rock music when you pee than the generic trickling water sound."

(Natt Garun, 30 May 2012, Digital Trends)
