Photographs taken outside the United States were submitted by TC students, faculty, staff and alumni and selected by an expert panel.
The nine finalists are on view in the Kasser Family Exhibition Space on the 1st Floor through mid-April. If you miss it, check out the TC 360 Flickr Set from the April 1st ...

The Development & Research team met today to discuss the future of Survey Sidekick, the Edlab's very own online survey tool. The tool is envisioned as being both practical and educational, teaching individuals how to best conduct surveys as they simultaneously create them. It is intended to provide the capacity to create highly functioning surveys but also give insight into best practices in online survey methodology.
Todays session began with a discussion of existing online survey tools, such as Survey M...
Perhaps the warm weather has taken a hold of my imagination, but recently I've been thinking about the idea of an EdLab-designed NYC Charter School. This could be interesting to explore by thinking about the design of the facility (and its library), the use of technology, the theme of the school, the allocation of resources, etc. Potentially such a project might provide:
(1) an internal contribution to the EdLab Reimagining Schooling project. Initial designs and actual proposals might emerge.
(2) external deliverables to the growing number of charter schools in NYC. Recently I came a...

To get our Edit Jam videos out into the world, I created a "director" account on LiveVideo, which is a new YouTube-like video sharing website. Why LiveVideo?

Registering as a director gives us a more prominent identity on the site, a better layout, and the ability to eventually list "crew" on this page. Visit the new EdLab Channel today!
Sadly, I choose a bad compression format for Joachim's video, and there is no second chance to update the content (you ca...
Here is a short Edit Jam video/commercial. It's intended to get people excited about the past event and future events. Props to Josh Anderson for the beats!
I hope you enjoy this installment of the EdLab Edit Jam videos. It is meant to demonstrate all of the wonderful experiences my Digital Design club students had at the event. Joachim and I plan on using these videos to plug the upcoming TC channel not only on the blog, but on the iTunes channel on PK, Cool Hunting Video, and Apple's website, among others. Watch out for Joachim's installment and let us know what you think!
