EdLab is a research, design, and development unit at Teachers College, Columbia University. EdLab envisions and pilots knowledge projects for a fundamentally different education sector that is attuned to the emerging post-industrial, information-based world. more >>
The PocketKnowledge Viewer project designed and developed an image viewer for the image collections of the Gottesman Libraries housed in PocketKnowledge. The Viewer lets you preview images as a list of thumbnails, as a text based list or as single images in both a "slideshow" and "non-slideshow" format. The Viewer maintains pocket categorization but lets you organize within a pocket by date, title and artist/photographer.
This project will create a new course that will operate as a laboratory for the design and development of infrastructures to support learning and teaching. Drawing on literatures in the sociology of organizations, design-based thinking, and social learning, the course will engage students and faculty from multiple programs with an interest in developing new educational opportunities in organizational units and networked environments.
The Launch Pad project will encompass a set of activities designed to address the challenge of launching new educational products, services, institutions, and infrastructures in ways that allow them to have maximum impact in transforming the education sector. The project will conduct research into the current options for launching new educational initiatives. It will create resources to support educators, researchers, and entrepreneurs in the development of new educational activities. It will also engage those actively involved in early stage activities looking for support.

Brian and I have recently returned from the fabled city of San Francisco where we attended the Service Experience Conference.

I tried to take copious notes throughout each of the talks but the emcee, Jamin Hegeman (design director of Adaptive Path, the company sponsoring the event), mercifully summarized each one for us — in one line! — at the end of the conference.

I’ll add those summaries here with some personal commentary, but that wasn’t even the most interesting part of my experience there. Stay with me for Part III (or just jump to it. Otherwise it’s going to be a while until you get there).
