BYTE 2012 Keynote

759

Published on

This is the Keynote that I gave at BYTE 2012. None of the ideas are original. The main idea of the keynote is that you are, in fact, a mashup of what you choose to let into your life. You are the sum of your influences. The German writer Goethe said, “We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.”

  • I was at a conference in January, and I was speaking with Dean Sharesky after his presentation. I said, I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to have to steal some of your ideas for my keynote! I told him how I was feeling. And he said something that began to change the way I felt. \n
  • He said Joan, nothing is original and even the best ideas are stolen ones. \n
  • He suggested I take a look at Austin Kleon’s site/now a book called How to steal like an artist.\n
  • You are, in fact, a mashup of what you choose to let into your life. You are the sum of your influences. The German writer Goethe said, “We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.”\n

  • When I hear about tools and websites on twitter I think about how I could possibly use them with students. Newspaper map allows us to click on any world location and read the newspaper.\n
  • Visual.ly is an amazing website that visually represents data and info graphics. \n
  • Dean Sharesky pointed me the direction of austin kleon. He wrote a book called steal like an artist. \nTake a look at blackout poetry. The idea is that you read an article from the newspaper, or wherever and circle words or phrases that you like. You can see how they fit together like poetry. You black out everything else.\n
  • Malcom Gladwell says that we traditionally reward firsts. But quite often it’s the ideas that come after that are more successful or streamlined. Take for example climbing everest. 1953, Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay,became the first to reach the roof of the world. Now, if you have $40 - 60 000, anyone can climb.\n The problem is that sometimes when people literally steal an idea, or copy it, it fails, or it loses something. And we have to ask ourselves why? \n\nI was fortunate enough to be at a tech conference where Michael Wesh was speaking. He said that it is not enough for us to be knowledge able, we have to inspire wonder. Wonder is what leads people to become knowledge able.\n
  • Gladwell: Inventor, implementor or tweaker?\nThere’s a difference between implementing and tweaking. Tweaking to me means making the changes necessary to inspire curiosity and wonder. How would you describe wonder?\n
  • Imagine what wonder would look like when it collides with the internet. Let’s face it, the internet has the capacity to be the world’s most remarkable collaboration and creativity device ever created. So wonder plus the internet = something amazing Think about the millions of people online. \n

  • Take advantage of today. Make a choice to We don’t get many opportunities like this. We’re seeing each other face to face. Embrace vulnerability and invite connections and the freedom to fail. The freedom to be and express who we are. Share in conversations. It transforms the classroom.\nNot saying you should tweet in your class, you should blog in your class whatever, what I’m saying. . . open up to allow and imagine what the possibilities are in your classroom. Students need to work together, express their knowledge. \n
