für all jene, die interactiondesign unterrichten…

und die gern mal nach Schweden kommen wollen, könnte das interessant sein:

Hi there,

Are you teaching any aspect of interaction design? Would you like
some inspiration and some feedback from other interaction design teachers?
Are you interested in sharing your work? In that case, this workshop
is for you!

“Show me yours and I’ll show you mine” is a one-day workshop on
discussing and creating design exercises for teaching any aspect of
interaction design. It takes place at the IT University in
Gothenburg, Sweden on the 18th of January 2008.

What do you need to do
You need to share one or more design exercises that you use in your
teaching together with some reflections, by describing it in a short
paper. You also need to share a wish: an exercise that you need for
teaching a certain purpose.

What you get
You will get access to everyone else’s exercises, and the
possibility to discuss them. You will also work together with the
others in creating
some of the wished exercises, and also in testing and evaluating them.
You also get free and delicious food. 🙂

wenn ölkreide zum leben erwacht

ein finnischer student hat das spiel “crayon physics deluxe” entwickelt, wo man gemalte dinge zum leben erwecken kann die dann den gesetzen der physik (sprich schwerkraft & co) gemäß reagieren. downloaden kann man sich das spiel auf der website kloonigames. die erste version hat noch kleine verbesserungen verdient, aber dennoch…etwas sehr sehr feines….

ich wollte hier das youtube video einfügen, aber das ging trotz wiederholten versuchen nicht 🙁 darum hier der link
