Turbocharge your Google Searches with Lumifi

Posted on December 23, 2008 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

I was reading about the Washington DC social media and technology scene and ran across this cool search application called Lumifi. It allows you to search and break down your subject, so you aren't restricted as much to the first 10. (check out the Global Warming demo) It allows you to "drill down" to more results in a very easy fashion. Also other academic research applications for teachers and students, although these are aimed more at the… Continue

Hey Nathan,
I am very interested in using social networking tools to teach higher ed students and love what Michael Wesch is doing. I am interested in joining your group; what are your focus points for the group?

Hi Nathan,

My name is Alyshia Olsen; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham, MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. Since you are in the 'e-learning and online teaching' group, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2009, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win a competition for startup funding on ideablob.com. You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975 . We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets at many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out alightlearning.com, anything you like!

Thanks,

Alyshia Olsen

Hi Nathan,

In your web consultancy work I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's web based power point presentation platform. Both might prove useful in your consulting work.

You can also take a look at Wiziq's blog. It isn't focused on reading per se but it is focused on education technology that can be very useful to online learning.
