Kids Design Their Own Prosthetics in ‘Superhero Cyborgs’ Workshop - Good.IS

Kids Design Their Own Prosthetics in ‘Superhero Cyborgs’ Workshop - Good.IS | Art and English language tips | Scoop.it
With wearable devices, as with much of the world’s products, it’s one size fits all. Not necessarily in terms of the device’s physical dimensions, but in the way customization is sacrificed at the altar of the assembly line. The Bay Area-based organization KIDmob, a “mobile, kid-integrated design firm,” rejects this norm, holding workshops where kids build customized solutions to meet local needs. One of their more recent endeavors is Superhero Cyborgs, a workshop where kids—both with and without disabilities—design and build wearable devices that can serve as what KIDmob calls “a potential alternative to their upper limb prosthetics.”

(9) of the most useful Safari shortcuts on the  iPad - iPadInsight | Art and English language tips | Scoop.it
Who doesn’t love a great shortcut?  If there’s an easier way to accomplish a task on my iPad or iPhone, I’m all for it. One of the apps I use the most on my iPad is Safari. From browsing the internet, to blogging on iPad Insight, to managing my finances, Safari on the iPad is a workhorse for me. There are many shortcuts that make your experience on Safari more enjoyable and easier to navigate., While some of these shortcuts might be known to many of us, hopefully you will find a few in this list that haven’t previously known.

Visual Literacy - Metalanguage & Learning

Visual Literacy - Metalanguage & Learning | Art and English language tips | Scoop.it

What it means to be literate today is significantly different to what is
was in the not too distant past. Once, being able to decode text was
sufficient even if barely so. Today literacy involves the ability to make
meaning from a multitude of text types, formats and modalities. The skills required are more diverse and the opportunities for engagement are much expanded. This new literacy with its multiple dimensions requires teaching programmes with a broad depth and appropriate scaffolds
