Wikiversity The Future Of Work Is Play Humans love games. Just check the current news cycle for evidence: The Xbox 360’s sleek, new controller-free gaming device, Kinect, is the fastest-selling consumer electronic product ever. Foursquare has attracted millions of badge-seeking users and aspiring “mayors.” And new programs like Quest to Learn are bringing game dynamics into our educational system. What is it about games that makes them so appealing? And how can we translate our enthusiasm for play into the workplace? What’s the most basic definition of a game? I’m partial to the definition put forth by Katie Salen and Eric Zimmerman in their book Rules of Play: A game is a system in which players engage in an artificial conflict, defined by rules, that results in a quantifiable outcome. What are some examples of how I could use the power of games to keep myself motivated during a long, personal project (say, making a documentary film)? Smaller self-imposed challenges can spark your creative drive in ways you don’t expect.

Synapses and Neurons and How to Memorize In the simplified model of the brain in this discussion, we’ll be looking at neurons and synapses.

VideoLectures - exchange ideas & share knowledge Why the future of work is play - TNW Industry Is this what you look like right now? You’re not alone. But it doesn’t have to be like that. On Friday at the annual PSFK conference in New York City, Founding Partner and CEO of Undercurrent, a digital strategy firm and author of Game Frame Aaron Dignan took the stage to discuss why the future of work is play. For years, society has polarized “play” and “work,” associating the former with laziness and the latter with grave importance. But in these two pictures below, who looks indolent and who looks filled with competitive ambition? “There’s a clear difference in emotion, sensation and engagement when people are engaged in gaming because it’s rich in structure and there’s a reward. Why aren’t people doing what they want to do and why aren’t they engaged at work? Real life is full of unstructured spaces and in contrast, games are incredibly structured experiences. Why? “If you’re not playing you’re not learning,” says Dignan.

The Ultimate Complete Final Social Media Sizing Cheat Sheet In June of this year, we published an infographic listing all of the sizing information for images on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest. It was a wildly successful piece of content, totally blowing our expectations out of the water. Unfortunately, while its popularity has flourished, nearly every social network instituted changes to their image sizes, rendering most of the information on the infographic out of date. We knew we needed to update the information on the cheat sheet, but we weren’t comfortable with simply adjusting one or two figures on the blog post and leaving it as-is. We’d also received a lot of feedback, both on the design and information it contained. We also decided to permanently redirect the old sheet here, so that shared tweets, pins, likes, and so on, would lead to the correct sizing dimensions. So, without further ado, here it is – the ultimate, complete, final social media sizing cheat sheet. Is the student ready to be a teacher?

Khan Academy Global Pulse Twitter is a remarkable tool to analyze information diffusion, and investigate social patterns and trends. In June 2011, Abdur Chowdhury and his team at Twitter posted a few visualization experiments covering the volume and worldwide scale of Twitter messages during the devastating earthquake in Japan on March 11. As they stated on the original post: "During major events, people use Twitter to share news and thoughts with friends, family and followers around the world. Messages originating in one place are quickly spread across the globe through Retweets, @replies and Direct Messages. We see this behavior during everything from sporting events like the World Cup to widely-televised news events like the royal wedding, and also in the face of major disasters like the March 11 earthquake in Japan, where the volume of Tweets sent per second spiked to more than 5,000 TPS five separate times after the quake and ensuing tsunami."

The Code Academy qualify their users to code HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and other coding languages, free of charge. They also have a strong presence on Facebook where their students regularly advise (and question) on one another's work.
