MSU Fight Song: MAET style

August 26, 2015 § Leave a comment

The summer of 2015, there were 133 students and instructors in the hybrid and overseas components of the MAET program. These people were spread out across three locations: East Lansing, MI (with 2 cohorts, Yr1 and 2 of MAET); Chicago, IL (with 2 cohorts of the MSUrbanSTEM program) and  Galway, Ireland (with 3 cohorts, Yr1, 2 & 3).

2015 also happens to be the 100th anniversary of the MSU Fight Song.

It should come as no surprise that something interesting was going to emerge from this confluence of events and people.

So here it is. The MSU Fight Song: MAET style. 133 creators, and one awesome video. (A special thanks to Christina Lovell for weaving her editing magic in stitching the images together in perfect synchrony with the music).

Enjoy.

Synthesis: A creative cognitive tool (2 articles)

August 25, 2015 § Leave a comment

Over the past couple of years my research team (the Deep-Play Research group) and I have been writing an on-going series of articles  about rethinking technology and creativity for the 21st century. Published in the journal TechTrends, these articles have been great fun to write, providing us the freedom to think deeply about these issues and, most importantly, put our ideas in words, and share them with the wider world. The last few have focused on transdisciplinary habits of mind that are essential for creativity. Our previous articles have looked at PerceivingPatterning, Abstracting, Modeling and Play. 

The next two articles (listed below) have focused on Synthesis. These two articles are co-authored with different colleagues, but manage to provide complementary visions of the idea. Here are the two latest articles (a complete list can be found here):

Creativity, Digitality, and Teacher Professional Development

August 24, 2015 § Leave a comment

te-digital-age

It has been almost 5 years since my research interests shifted formally to issues related to creativity, technology and teacher education. This line of work (though less influential than my TPACK related work) has led to multiple journal articles and research studies. It is influenced the classes I teach and in turn my pedagogical experiences have influenced my thinking and writing. Recently Maggie Niess and Henry Gillow-Wiles provided us (my research team The Deep-Play Research group) an opportunity to look back on this line of work and write it up for the Handbook of Research on Teacher Education in the Digital Age. Details, abstract and link to article provided below:

Creativity, Technology & Teacher Education: JTATE Special Issue

August 24, 2015 § Leave a comment

grumpy-cat

Danah Henriksen and I recently edited a special issue of the Journal of Technology and Teacher Education (Volume 23, Number 3, July 2015) devoted to Creativity, Technology and Teacher Education.  This special issue is organized thematically around eight articles that explore these ideas from a rich range of perspectives. As we write in the introduction:

All in all the articles in this special issue speak to different aspects of theory, research, and practice – in attempts to go beyond the specifics or intricacies of tools, and towards providing a broader framework, or guiding ideas and takeaways that can inform the future of teacher education. One of the strengths of this special issue is the rich manner in which these key ideas are explored across different subject matters, classroom and learning contexts, technologies, teacher roles, pedagogical approaches, and theoretical frameworks… We believe that this special issue will be an important step toward exploring the connections between creativity, technology and teaching…

Below is a list of all the articles in the special issue, with links to the two articles we co-authored.  « Read the rest of this entry »

Creativity & Teaching, new article in TCRecord

May 22, 2015 § 1 Comment

creativity&teaching
How do exemplary teachers incorporate creativity in their teaching? For her dissertation study, Dr. Danah Henriksen  interviewed several National Teacher of the Year award winners (and finalists), to better understand their beliefs, interests, and practices involving creative teaching. Analysis of the data help us identify key themes of how these teachers approach the creative process, as well as the connection between their personal interests and professional creativity. This paper has finally been published!! (Yes it took a while). Those interested can download it from the link below:
Henriksen, D., & Mishra, P. (in press). We teach who we are: Creativity in the lives and practices of accomplished teachers. Teachers College Record Volume 117 Number 7, 2015, p. –
http://www.tcrecord.org ID Number: 17947, Date Accessed: 5/22/2015 12:08:16 PM
The publication of the paper was followed up some media attention. This has been one of the best pieces of research I have had the privilege to be a part of. I think Danah has done a fantastic job and she (and the work) deserves all the attention that it has been getting.
Here is a video created by Vialogues & TCRecord where Danah describes the research and findings. You can join in the conversation here.

The next article in our series Rethinking Technology & Creativity in the 21st Century is out. Sadly there is an error in the title of the paper. The paper explores the idea of play as a key trans-disciplinary habit of mind often used by creative people across disciplines. Our previous articles have looked at PerceivingPatterning, Abstracting, and Modeling. Below is a link to the latest article (you can see all the articles in the series by going here).

TPACK Vanity (v. 2.0)

April 23, 2015 § 3 Comments

citation-meme

Back in 2006 Matt and I took a bunch of work that we had been doing in the area of technology integration for teaching and pulled it together into one broad theoretical framework and published it in TCRecord. The TPACK framework as it has come to be known has been incredibly influential—far more than we could have imagined. As far as citations go, this is what it looks like on Google Citation (graph generated dynamically by polling Google Scholar citations for Mishra & Koehler, 2006). See Matt’s page about this here.

Citations of Mishra & Koehler (2006) over time

The recent issue of Educational Technology journal (that I mentioned previously here) has an article by Nyland, Anderson, Beckstrom, Boren, Thomas & West where they review a decade of publications  (2003-2012) in the  Journal of Educational Computing Research (JECR) to see the kinds of broad patterns of work emerge. I was gratified to learn that the Koehler & Mishra (2005) article was the most cited paper of that decade – with 318 citations (actually Google Scholar currently puts the number of citations at 508 which may just be a function of when the review was conducted).

Koehler, M. J. & Mishra, P. (2005). What happens when teachers design educational technology? The development of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge. Journal of Educational Computing Research. 32(2), 131-152. [PDF]

More interestingly, the reviewers also examined the top-cited paper for each year of the analysis. Under these criteria 3 of the 10 most cited articles in the journal are related to TPACK! You can read the complete review by going here:

Nyland, R. Anderson, N., Beckstromm T., Thomas, R., & West, R.E. (2015).  Educational Technology Research Journals: Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2003-2012Educational Technology. 55(2), 43-48. 

Article in WEF Global Information Technology Report

April 22, 2015 § Leave a comment

WEF-meme

Everybody has heard of the  World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. As Wikipedia says, “The meeting brings together some 2,500 top business leaders, international political leaders, selected intellectuals, and journalists to discuss the most pressing issues facing the world, including health and the environment.” The WEF is more than the Davos meeting, however. It is an “independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas.” Website at http://www.weforum.org/

The WEF recently came out with the Global Information Technology Report 2015. The theme this year was ICT for Inclusive Growth. I was invited to write a chapter in the report by Anurag Behar, vice-chancellor of the Azim Premji University and co-CEO of the Azim Premji Foundation. You can access the complete report by clicking the link above or read the PDF of our chapter by clicking on the title below.

Behar, A., & Mishra, P. (2015). ICTs in Schools: Why focusing policy and resources on educators, not children, will improve educational outcomes. In ICT for Inclusive Growth: Global Information Technology Report 2015. World Economic Forum.

Sadly this doesn’t mean that I am headed to Davos anytime soon… but it is good to have our ideas out there, hopefully to be read by “business, political, academic, and other leaders of society” and through that, hopefully help “shape global, regional, and industry agendas.”

I was recently interviewed by the journal Educational Technology: The magazine for managers of change in education as a part of their series Q & A with Ed Tech Leaders. The interviews are conducted by contributing editors, Susan M. Fulgham and Michael F. Shaughnessy. I would like the thank the two of them for their patience — since I was more than a little tardy in getting back to them. But they were always more than gracious and for that I am grateful.

I have always loved paradoxes so it is with great pleasure that the fourth article in our series on Art and Math (co-authored with my friend Gaurav Bhatnagar and published by At Right Angles) focuses on paradoxes and visual wordplay.

I am a huge fan of Stateside with Cynthia Canty, a radio show on Michigan Radio. So imagine my excitement when I was interviewed by her about my ongoing exhibition (Deep-Play: Creativity in Math & Art through Visual Wordplay) at the MSU Museum.

Deep-Play: Creativity in Math & Art through Visual Wordplay

March 1, 2015 § Leave a comment

I have been creating ambigrams for years now… and I feel extremely lucky that what started as a personal interest and passion has led to some wonderful experiences and learning. These include a series of articles on the mathematics behind these visual designs and now an exhibition at the MSU Museum.

Since December the Creativity-Art-Science Gallery at the MSU Museum has hosted an exhibition of my work – and it has been wonderful. We had an informal gallery-walk a couple of week-ends ago and more than a 100 friends and colleagues showed up at the event. Which was truly gratifying.
I was also given an opportunity to present my work at EduPalooza 2015, a creative arts event at the College of Education a week or so ago. Jon Good recorded my talk and I took a bit of time over the past week to create a video of my comments synched to my slides. You can see this video below.  I think it is a good introduction to ambigrams, mathematics and also includes some interesting stories about my experiences with creating and sharing these with the world at large.

The annual SITE conference is an fixture in my life in the spring semester. This year is no exception. What is interesting is the manner in which the EPET program at MSU has been increasing its presence at the conference. Above is a screen-shot of my calendar of from Tuesday March 3 to Friday March 6, listing ALL the presentations that students, faculty, graduates of MSU are involved in. Below that is a list of all the presentations. Thanks to Spencer Greenhalgh for taking time to create this list. He has also assembled all of these (plus basic info like keynotes, lunches, etc.) into a Google Calendar, which you can add to your own iCal / Google Calendar/ other calendar apps.” Which is exactly what I did. Enjoy.

Blast from the past: Theories and memory

Ambigram for the word “Theory” by Punya Mishra

My first real research study was one that I conducted back when I was a graduate student under the mentorship of Bill Brewer. It was designed as a classic educational psychology memory study and though I have done little along those lines recently, it is a study that I am quite proud of. For one reason or another I had not posted it on to my website and when I came across it today, while chatting with a doctoral student, I felt it was time to dust it off and offer it to the world, once again. Here is the reference and abstract and a link to the actual article (below the jump).

Sharing one of my newer ambigram designs, for the word “theory”, see above, was an added bonus.

Inside-Out: Happy 2015

December 27, 2014 § 1 Comment

Every winter break (for the past six years) our family creates a video to welcome the new year. This is no ordinary video. It requires days of discussion, planning, construction, shooting, and editing.

Our videos never feature us (expect maybe a still-shot of the entire family towards the end) but are usually typographical in nature. There is some kind of visual illusion involved, sometimes a play on words synchronized to music. The videos have become more elaborate over the years and the challenge, of course, is to create something that tops what we had done in the past years. As you can imagine this has become more and more difficult as the years go by. What makes things more complicated is that we have no budget to speak of ($10 is around as much as we have ever spent in any given year). If you want to see all the videos in the series, or find out more about how this year’s video was created, scroll down to the end of this post.

Working on these videos has led to is some great family moments, as we argue, discuss, collaborate and create. Below is our latest video, titled Inside-Out: Happy 2015. Raise the volume of your device to max, click to make the video full-screen and hit play! Enjoy.

Inside-Out: Happy 2015
From Shreya, Soham, Smita & Punya

*****

Videos from years past

Here are links to the videos from the previous years (along with some other videos made as a family):

*****

The making of Inside-Out: 

The idea for the video came from examples such as this one on Youtube – with some creative improvisation by us. Essentially what you have here are not cubes but shells of cubes. The inner shell, the concave end (imagine the inner corner of a room) has the numbers 2, 0, 1 and 4 written on them while the other side, the convex side, has the numbers 2, 0, 1 and 5 written on them. The letters were projected onto the cubes (using a computer and a projector) and written in such a way that they would be readable only when seen from ONE specific viewpoint. These “cubes” were then stuck onto wooden barbecue skewers that were held up by poking them into little boxes of playdoh. All four of these were then placed on a wooden board placed on a standard Lazy Susan (nabbed from the kitchen) which allowed them to be rotated at will. All this was placed in front of our living-room TV (covered with black sheets). After some experimentation with the lighting we had our final setup.

When seen with one eye (or through a camera), even the inside of a cube looks like a cube (due to the lack of depth perception). What this meant is that when you see the “cubes” for the first time you are not actually seeing cubes but rather the concave shell of a cube. Our eyes however, see a cube and when tilted or rotated slightly they appear to move in strange counter-intuitive ways. A full rotation leads you to seeing the convex end (with the numbers 2015). The setup was filmed using a Nikon D7000 camera and edited on iMovie. Music was provided by the amazing collection of free music provided by Kevin McLeod (at Incompetech.com). Below is a photo of the setup
