Searcher Specific Cognitive Algorithmic Support

If the searcher allowed for cognitive assessment, contextual cues could be specifically designed for each searcher. This is really the core concept of LILA and would take into account searcher's cognitive levels, matching them contextually to improve the quality of search results. Interests, Ontologies and other knowledge bases could be assessed by such an algorithm as well.
One spectacular benefit of such an approach to search would be even more practical, useful and successful advertising to a searcher. Searchers would be much more matched for advertising, getting a lot closer fit to any products they may be interested in.

Could this be a major platform for LILA?

So far, the games seem silly, but could things change once cognitive assessment is added?

How LILA will be adopted.

The moment in this article, "A 13-year-old, illiterate kid who’d never seen a computer wandered over tentatively, and soon realized he could move the cursor by moving a finger across the touch pad. Within four hours, a small group of kids had gathered. They had figured out how to open Internet Explorer and were playing a game on Disney’s Web site."

I would like to see this ASAP for every child on earth.

This is nice to hear from someone else for a change.

Evaluation of Learning Games

Larry Hedges and CyGaMEs seem to have a notion of what's required to finally put digital learning games over the top.

Tetris inoculates against PTSD

I wonder what else could do that? Kidiwiki and LILA are obvious candidates, or at least hold the potential in some kind of future version.

My New Role Model

I love this guy's advice, not just for living long, but for living well at any age.

New Learning Model

Interesting, but there is one thing missing. A very simple semantic algorithm that can be applied to the assessment of the learner's optimal learning curve.

In other words, LILA.

Much cool stuff about search

Many niche sites and alternatives to the king.

Add LILA to Google Wave

That's all I'm askin...

Please. Nicely.

Reality For Those Stuck in the 10th Rung of the Bardo Thodol

Actually, this is one of the best things I've read about how the world can and should work, micro to macro.

I think this is the greatest step yet toward 'being our own broadcast networks!"

What else do we need, oh yeah, 'studio in a box.'

Then massive free bandwidth...

Lots of sites, references, etc.

Brain Development, Learning and LILA

First, there is tremendous scientific evidence regarding multiple intelligences, particularly J.P. Guilford's The Structure of Intellect.
Multiple 'styles' of learning, individualized learning are both indicated in digital game based learning.

Digital Game-Based Bio-Engineering

Indeed, this is an example at the high end of something that could be called game based research, development, engineering.

What, nobody heard of J.P. Guilford, author of The Structure of Intellect?

I want to have this sensibility infuse LILA.

Central Park Might Like KidWiki

Kidwiki, my new name for an idea I had in 1992 and demo/tested on my 8 month-old, Justin, now almost 18. More about that later, cause I'm thinking it might make a great iPhone App...

Please email me quickly if you want to help develop it!

LILA on Twitter

Ok, I guess this already seems like a no-brainer, like why didn't I think of this before...

If peeps are tweetin, then their words are certainly available for LILA to assess. Everyone's words. The implications are staggering! Even overwhelming for me, which is saying something.

Please someone give me money.

A List of People Trying to Help Improve Learning

Wish I could upload LILA to all of them right now!

In game browser based chat/how does this compare with Playxpert?

I don't understand the difference in the technologies, bu t I can't help but think that Playxpert would be a better choice. Anyone?

Emsense - Brave New World

I need you guys to validate my theoretical application of The Regime of Competence in LILA.

Or, maybe we could partner...

This is too scary real; must read the book...

I have/am experiencing this up close and personal. The whole review makes sense. So, I gotta get some real time at a bookstore, since I have been shunted into the penniless and powerless...for now.

Top 10 MMO's is the answer for the question: What industries are making money right now?

Not a surprise, really. I'm guessing most people would think, well, escape is popular when things are bad. But I think that's totally wrong. What's more meaningful than being able to engage so many of your faculties with so little allocation of resources than MMO's. What's a more efficient use of resources?

And the big ugly secret of education is that MMO's are the best way to learn almost anything. And with tools to expand and assess their use, almost can become everything.

$ For Education Technology - Now is the time!

If only school principals and students had a game that could satisfy the requirements of curriculum testing and be fun and efficient at facilitating learning.

Any ideas?

How 'bout LILA?

The Art of Game Design

Looking at the chart of game elements and their interrelationships, I am envisioning how game play could be optimized (or whether it should or can) for an ARG that evolved organically by inviting game developers to contribute to a massive learning game. Something to think about.

Twitter, LILA and Google (Playxpert)

Ok, so what is going on here? Real time search. Places where people congregate. Gaming. Learning. I'm so close to figuring out an actual game where we could play with these things and assess cognitive faculties on top of it.

My brain is screaming! THIS IS THE NEW SCHOOL!

Anyone?

The Edge World Question Center's 2009 What will change the world

Ok, I would like to think that this is the year, esp if Google picks my entry LILA, that Digital Game-Based Learning starts to change the world by offering free ubiquitous exponentially fast learning for everyone.

I'd like to think....
