"MyCreate is an iPad app that teachers and students (grades K-12) can use to create stop-motion animations. Taking advantage of the built-in camera in the iPad 2 or 3, students can solely focus on the creative direction of the project -- building scenes, editing the sequences, and overlaying the audio. It was developed based on the same research from Tufts University used to create SAM Animation, iCreate To Educate’s first product.

 

"The goal of iCreate To Educate is to put students at the center of learning by encouraging them to construct and represent knowledge both in physical pictures and models (through crafts), as well as through stop-motion video. As a result, iCreate To Educate pairs myCreate with activity guides and rubrics for teachers, originally developed for the SAM Animation software, for teaching units in science, math and language arts to English language learners.

 

"The activity guides (which are available for free) are not comprehensive but intended to "seed ideas" for hands-on projects, says iCreate To Educate CEO, Melissa Pickering.

 

"The app is available for $4.99 on the App Store and is also available for volume education pricing.

Quick fix for an early Internet problem lives on a quarter-century later

Quick fix for an early Internet problem lives on a quarter-century later | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
A key protocol created as a short-term solution in 1989 is designed to automatically trust users, a flaw that leaves the network ripe for attack.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

The Internet can appear as elegantly designed as a race car as it immerses us in consuming worlds of sight and sound. But it’s closer to an assemblage of kludges — more Frankenstein than Ferrari — that endure because they work, or at least work well enough.

The consequences play out across cyberspace every second of every day, as hackers exploit old, poorly protected systems to scam, steal and spy on a scale never before possible. The flaws they exploit often are well-known and ancient in technological terms, surviving only because of an industry-wide penchant for patching over problems rather than replacing the rot.

“You’re in Hackerville here on the Internet. Period,” said Randy Bush, a computer scientist who specializes in routing security. “All of this stuff lacks formal discipline. . . . It’s paint and spackle.”

Such is the story of the “three-napkins protocol,” more formally known as Border Gateway Protocol, or BGP.
