Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 10, 11:13 AM

We treat social constructivism as if it is new. Dewey and Montessori wrote about it over a century ago although they did not call it constructivism. The idea of using digital technologies and social media add a new twist to old ideas and it is important to inquire into what that means.

Helen Teague's curator insight, February 11, 10:03 AM

nicely succinct infographic on learning theories

Tom Short's curator insight, February 12, 4:58 PM

Nice overview of various learning theories; positioned against some new thinking about Networked learning theory.

GIS and Agent-Based Modelling: Social Media and the Emergence of Open-Source Geospatial Intelligence

GIS and Agent-Based Modelling: Social Media and the Emergence of Open-Source Geospatial Intelligence | Agent-based modeling and simulation | Scoop.it

The emergence of social media has provided the public with an effective and irrepressible real-time mechanism to broadcast information. The great popularity of platforms such as twitter and YouTube, and the substantial amount of content that is communicated through them are making social media an essential component of open-source intelligence. The information communicated through such feeds conveys the interests and opinions of individuals, and reveals links and the complex structure of social networks. However, this information is only partially exploited if one does not consider its geographical aspect.

Visually-Driven Urban Simulation: exploring fast and slow change in residential location

A large-scale residential-location model of the Greater London region is being developed in which all stages of the model-building process—from data input, analysis through calibration to prediction—are rapid to execute and accessible in a visual and immediate fashion. The model is structured to distribute trips across competing modes of transport from employment to population locations. It is cast in an entropy-maximising framework which has been extended to measure actual components of energy—travel costs, free energy, and unusable energy (entropy itself)—and these provide indicators for examining future scenarios based on changing the costs of travel in the metro region. Although the model is comparatively static, we interpret its predictions in terms of fast and slow processes—‘fast’ relating to changes in transport modes, and ‘slow’ relating to changes in location. After developing and explaining the model using appropriate visual analytics, a scenario in which road-travel costs double is tested: this shows that mode switching is considerably more significant than shifts in location—which are minimal.

Bizarre Soft Robots Evolve to Run

Bizarre Soft Robots Evolve to Run | Agent-based modeling and simulation | Scoop.it

This crazy looking thing is a simulated robot, made up of two different kinds of muscles along with bones and soft tissue for structure. This robot wasn't designed, it was evolved over a thousand virtual generations to move as fast, as far, and as functionally as possible.
