COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING
Supercomputing requires math, thinking skills, algebra and computational thinking and an awareness of gateways to computing. New technologies require rethinking the use of technology Cyberlearning does that for transformational learning.

About
This is a part of The Leading Edge tutorials
series.
All tutorials are open-access and include open-source code examples.
The manuscript was written in Authorea.
You can view and comment on the text
online.
The Jupyter notebook that accompanies the tutorial (see the source code
repository on Github) contains the full source code, along with documentation
and tests. Both figures of the tutorial are produced by the code in the
notebook.
The code and idea for this tutorial came from my Geofísica 2: Sismologia e sísmica course.
I came across the problem of implementing NMO correction while preparing my
lecture and practical exercises on this topic.
This is a clear example of how learning happens both ways in a classroom.
Abstract
Open any text book about seismic data processing and you will inevitably find a
section about the normal moveout (NMO) correction.
When applied to a common midpoint (CMP) section, the correction is supposed to
turn the hyperbola associated with a reflection into a straight horizontal
line.
What most text books won't tell you is how, exactly, do you apply this
equation to the data?
That is what this tutorial will teach you (hopefully).

[Presentation] VR Design: Transitioning from a 2D to a 3D Design Paradigm - Alex Chu Design Portfolio

[Presentation] VR Design: Transitioning from a 2D to a 3D Design Paradigm - Alex Chu Design Portfolio | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
This is a presentation from the VR track at the Samsung Developer Conference 2014 in San Francisco. Please check out the PDF version to see the notes associated with each slide.

The commercialization of virtual reality provides an exciting space for designing user experiences and interfaces. However, this mostly unexplored technology holds a different set of opportunities and challenges for traditional two-dimensional designers. In this session, we will demonstrate the Gear VR, review research pertaining to VR experience design, and discuss the implications VR can have on your working process.

Augmented reality set to overtake VR as new apps go live

Augmented reality set to overtake VR as new apps go live | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
You’re at work, flipping through emails that hang in mid-air. Graphs, text messages and pictures pop up on your desk, then disappear. Bored, you sit back and watch a jellyfish bob across the ceiling.

This is augmented reality – real life only better, bedazzled with digital displays. AR is the next futuristic fantasy the tech industry wants to conquer, and in 2017 it may finally happen.

You can watch a video demo of the above scene courtesy of secretive Florida start-up Magic Leap. This shows a head-mounted display overlaying surroundings with a broad array of eye-popping graphics — including a game in which you shoot enemy robots as they pop up around you. The release date for Magic Leap’s technology is still unknown – it may be a few years off yet – but you can already get a taste of some AR experiences.

Draw sketches for virtual reality like pro – Virtual Reality Pop

Draw sketches for virtual reality like pro – Virtual Reality Pop | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Virtual reality is a brand new frontier, but there are already tools that cover almost all the steps of creating a new experience (thank you, game industry).
But sketching is so ancient, as we still are using the same tools as ages before, a pencil and a piece of paper. I don’t want to say that it’s so bad. I really like making fast drafts. But VR gives us new boundaries as a comfortable field of view, no frame around, the ability to move your head and so on.
I used to do a lot sketches of only part of the view, or views from different projections (for example front + top). Also, I found this cool template for drafting stories. It is good, but doesn’t reflect how the user will see it. Also, there is the solution for the Sketch App, but I’m an old fashion guy who likes taking the pencil first.
So I tried to use 360 panorama grid to align my sketches to wide angle view. It was looking not very spectacular, till I scanned it and put on my face.
And it is working! So I’ll be glad to share my process step by step:
