1 Iowa State University of Science and Technology Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Cubism in education : flexing to all patrons needs for education, learning styles, cultures… Mani Mina Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Iowa State University Ames, Iowa

2 Summary l Introduction, technology and education l A note on learning l Cubism as an artistic concept l What is cubism in education? l The classes for future, what can we achieve l An example of the classes- a start l How universities and industries can benefit l Conclusions Iowa State University of Science and Technology The author would like to thank Mr. Hiroyuki IIno and Paul Jewell for their wonderful and kind help. This project will be impossible without their contribution and cooperation

3 Something to think about A question by a Processor l If we allow high tech classes and streaming lectures for everyone, anywhere on the earth, u why wouldn't all of the students take classes from MIT? u Why would they take classes from other schools? u What happens to us? u Great question, shows the education paradigm we are riding on!

4 Introduction l What have technology done to education? u The first time that we saw the hi-tech classes, how were they used? l What are the most popular ways that technology has changed classes and students lives u Are all good? l How can we learn from what has been done and do use technology to the fullest? l So what is the best usage of the new technology? u Documentation, documentation…. Iowa State University of Science and Technology

5 Revisit: the Strange Land of Thinking and Learning! l Let us look at media of communications that we are familiar with u Live lecture, before and after u What to lecture, how to lecture,….getting more in how we learn u Utilization of high tech, documentary…. l Our goal is to create self learners of all ages, groups,.. u We need to create incentive to learn, to remember and to continue u What do we know about how people get excited? What would get them going, how they would learn? …..use all we know + l Music An example u Have you realized what happens when you know more detail about a song? DEMODEMO cubism, discussion about this piece of music Iowa State University of Science and Technology

6 What is Cubism in Painting l Cubism: the most influential style of the twentieth century, was created by Picasso and Braque starting about 1907, in Paris. l However, to most art observers Cubism and Picasso are inseparable. l Cubism is based on the allowing the viewer to have simultaneous presentation of multiple views, disintegration, and the geometric reconstruction of objects in flattened, ambiguous pictorial so space; figure and ground merge into one interwoven surface of shifting planes. It was the cubists goal to represent the subject on the 2 dimensional canvases via multicultural, social role, depicting psychological, environmental, historical, and other aspects of the subjects perspective. It is exactly this multi dimensional aspect that this paper is focusing Iowa State University of Science and Technology

7 Cubists Artists Constraints l In painting the constraint is the 2-D canvas, or the 3-D.. l All of the message has to be provided right up in front of the viewer l You do need to know more detail and even be educated about the multidimensional aspect of the subject and the artist to know what they mean Iowa State University of Science and Technology

8 Cubism in Education l Think of a subject that you know u How can we see multiple sides of the subject? u How can we see different aspects of the subject? –Mathematical, conceptual, historical, practical, academic, industrial u How can we see different ways that it can be presented? –Audio, visual, animation, musical, formulation Iowa State University of Science and Technology

9 Constraints in Education l What are our constraints? u Time, effective teachers and synergy of the team, creating effective environments …. l What can the technology do for us? u Do we need to have live classes? u Can we offer other forms than live classes and … Iowa State University of Science and Technology

10 So What About Cubism in Education? l Cubism in education is allowing the learner to have presentation of multiple views, perspectives, approaches, styles, inter-relationships with other fields …. Regarding a given subject. l It is even possible for the educators to represent the multidimensional aspects of the subject via multicultural and multi-social, depicting psychological, environmental, historical, and other aspects of the subjects perspective. l It is exactly this ultra-dimensional aspect which is the focus of this paper and will define the new paradigm of future classes. l We can offer classes with flexible styles for all patrons. l The education will flex to the students l Such an approach will also allow industrial, professional development, practical, and academic patrons to be able to benefit from the outcome. Iowa State University of Science and Technology

11 An Important Paradigm: What Is The Best Use of High Tech Classes? l Effective documentation u There can be electronic versions (which can be easily edited) of lectures, notes, demos, presentations, student faculty discussions… u Possibility of putting together special focus tracks made of different academic classes and lectures, industrial presentations and applications, and even documentary sections,… l Bringing people from different geographical location, different schools, different time together Iowa State University of Science and Technology

12 Where To Start? l Start with the strength of your program u Put effective teachers in high-tech classes, let them have fun, teach, create, and play, let them be effective. –Keep streaming videos –Keep electronic versions of notes –Keep good description of every lecture –Encourage and help the instructors to get clips from labs, industrial partners, internet etc and keep documented –Encourage them to write (take videos) about who they are what is their philosophy of teaching, what they expect students to do… l Have effective teams with high tech background help with the classes, and show them what they can do u The effective teams are going to be managers who would make these come true l Run small scale and focused classes, get feedback, get discussion going l Keep improving, expanding, augmenting, and creating l Work extension offices, industrial partners Iowa State University of Science and Technology

13 Some of the challenges that we faced at ISU l The idea was accepted l The people were identified and scope of the work was clarified u After reading the paper they thought Wow, I am not sure if I am good enough for this! l We have 10 people (from 10 different areas, and 4 departments) involved and they showed great interest l And……… l The most valuable players are the technical team, without their help this is not possible Iowa State University of Science and Technology

14 An Example Iowa State University of Science and Technology

15 Example Continuity Equation and its role in engineering and science Basic Electromagnetic Approach M. Mina ISU Streaming VideoAudio Notes To probe further Practice Examples Historical Approach ( Perspective of James Clerk Maxwell ) R.Gerdes, ISU Streaming VideoAudio Notes To probe further Basic Fluid dynamic Approach Streaming VideoAudioNotes To probe further Practice Examples animation Plasma Physics Natalia Babaeva, ISU Streaming VideoAudioNotes To probe further Practice Examples Discussion Group Discussion Group Discussion Group Discussion Group Iowa State University of Science and Technology

16 The feedback loop l Once the first attempt is achieved, this should be available to patrons l Educators, contributors, students, industrial partners should all see and critically analyze it. Here are some key questions u How can we make this better? u How can we include you and your needs? u How can you help us? Who can help us? l It is the feedback loop, and the systematic augmentation and improvement that is the key. Iowa State University of Science and Technology

17 Who can benefit? l Faculty u This is the best documentation of their work and they can re- use and improve it constantly l Colleges, departments, university recruiting.. u This is a great way to get others know about us u This is a great vehicle to get high school students know what colleges do, get involved and plan ahead to be a part of it l University extension offices, industrial partners l Independent industries who would be interested in continued education for their engineering, and staff l International extensions, programs, collaboration l What about industrial attempts of this idea? Iowa State University of Science and Technology

18 Conclusions l Cubism in education offers a multidimensional, multicultural, multidiscipline possibilities l We can use the newly available technology to offer to all patrons, all styles, all interest l By managing the documentation well and effectively one can have many tracks for different users, and interests l The key is good management and documentation as offered by the distance Education, high technology class room teams l This way allows education to be flexible for a wide variety of patrons, styles, backgrounds,… l Cubism in education is the future of education! Iowa State University of Science and Technology

19 Future Work l Start classes try new things u get feedback u go through the creative loop l Work with education psychologists u identify the effectiveness, and more favorable approaches l Work with industrial, practical, and advance technological groups u how would they like us to work with them l Identify the best practices and the most effective approaches for particular audiences l Document, publish, share ideas

20 Thank you Questions? Our team appreciates all of your comments, ideas, and thoughts Please feel free to contact us Mani Mina, This work was impossible without the great help of the Engineering Distance Education team
