Friedrich Hinterberger

How we make the world a better place

100 tons of CO2 per person living on earth today must be emitted by mankind only to ensure that the global temperature does not rise by more than 1.5 degrees compared to the level before the industrial revolution. This means that waste must be recycled almost entirely and the consumption of meat restricted. After all, we would have to derive much more happiness and satisfaction from leisure, relationships and lifelong learning than from material consumption. The economy would then grow even more strongly than it does now...

Christof Arn

When learners are more important than my plan as a teacher, education becomes effective

In this episode we laugh about the teaching failures of Christof Arn and marvel at how much further education can be relationship-oriented and situational even with large groups, why goals can be achieved much more effectively with agile methodology, what other advantages this has, what kind of knowledge lies behind situational didactics, where it is connected to personal development as a teacher and how teachers can easily develop themselves in this direction - these are the questions we are dealing with here.

Prof. Dr. Dr. Christof Arn ist teaching practitioner: he constantly teaches various subjects in education and further education, at technical colleges and at universities. his approach of "agile didactics" is not new, but good; above all, it is suitable for everyday use and impressively different at the same time. well-considered less plan-fixing leads to more goal achievement - and also more fun: learning as a shared adventure.

Media Research - Recombinant Computer Science and Neosentience

In his paper, Prof. Seaman deals with the production of meanings and with ideas for computerized meta-meaning systems - systems that make the user aware of how meaning is created and changed through their interaction - and he talks about new forms of computation, about learning systems, about the concept of creating an electrochemical computer, and about the concept of computer-based creativity - both for the use of the computer as a creative tool and for its use in the exploration of creative potential - the creativity of creativity.

 

Prof. Dr. Bill Seaman is co-director of The Emergence Lab for Computer Media, Art and Culture and Professor of Art, Art History and Visual Studies at Duke University. He studied at MIT (Master of Science in Visual Studies) and at the University of Wales (at the Center for Advanced Inquiry in Interactive Art). He is currently working on a new book: from the Architecture of Ideas: The Life and Work of Ranulph Glanville.

Talk to each other: generations!

Generation Z is pushing into the labour market, Y is established, X and the baby boomers are still active. different values, cultural backgrounds and realities of life shape attitudes, communication and action. the design of future-oriented, intergenerational communication requires constant changes in perspective and an open-minded attitude. now it is a matter of building understanding and trust between the generations instead of classifying the individual in generational drawers in order to facilitate joint learning and synergies.
