Available Educational Resources

Between Youtube and iTunes we are getting a very comprehensive online library of learning materials. Assessment would complete the picture, allowing learners to have the cognitively appropriate content 'pushed' toward them. C'mon LILA!

Google + Zynga + Metaweb = LILA; winner of 10^100 Project?

Let's see, social games plus semantic web. I have envisioned the marriage of these two since 2005 when I dreamed up LILA.

I started out calling it 'Google Games'

There wasn't anything that came up on search for Google Games in 2005 when I thought up LILA.
Well, it had something to do with gimmicky search results, such as trying to think up a term that would return 1 result, or two or something like that. Not Games. So, YAY!!!

How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

Yeah, that's right, practice! For a decade. Three hours a day.

One Step Closer to Ubiquity

Add cognitive assessment and voila'!

Infant's Sensitivity To Voice At Seven Months Has Implications for Kidiwiki

Not sure what they mean by 'adult-like responses' in the neonate. Cause folks everywhere are scratching their heads regarding this as a developmental threshold. But then again, it's Yahoo news, not the exact wording of the study in Neuron.

The Redemption Of Western Culture

By studying the writings of Parmenides and Empedocles, the teachers of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, Peter Kingsley has identified the core misunderstanding that has caused Western Culture to be guided in the wrong direction. Toward separation instead of oneness, away from the senses, instead of directly through them, the western traditions have found 'no meaning' instead of the truth. Can the west, seemingly ignorant, arrogant and doomed on its present path, find redemption in this new knowledge of the essence of its indigenous spirituality?

The Next Evolutionary Stage For Humanity

Thank you Jane. Google, Jane...Jane, Google. I'm LILA.

Google's Acquisition of Aardvark

I'd seriously like to believe that Google is preparing to launch LILA, because this acquisition is right square in line with it, social, semantic, user generated. All it needs is cognitive assessment and play/games. And Jane McGonigal.

iPad and Educational Interfaces

Insightful commentary re iPad, video conferencing, social networking with enormous implications for learning and creativity/productivity, etc. And the mention of the wife's PhD thesis on such implications for learning takes it to the stratosphere. Kidiwiki and LILA were meant for this arc. It's inevitable/inexorable.

11-year old develops iSketch app for iPhone, donates proceeds to children's hospital.

As it says at the end of the article, humbling.

Why Google is the choice to develop LILA

This issue becomes even more important to the algorithmic engine required for LILA.
