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.

John Pearce's curator insight, May 17, 12:13 AM

I've purchased Dash and Dot and am impressed with the range of options that are available using the three iPad apps associated with them. Unfortunately I don't have any youngsters around me who I can "trial" my robots with. It's great then to read an article which records in some detail how some "real" children have reacted to them.

 

If you're not yet familiar with Dash and Dot then you might also like to check out the Dash and Dot YouTube Channel at https://goo.gl/Qqvelr where another pair of youngsters, Wally and Mimi share how to get started and more with Dash and Dot.

How Does Google's Cardboard Hold Up? ^ GeekMom ^ by Lisa Tate

How Does Google's Cardboard Hold Up? ^ GeekMom ^ by Lisa Tate | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
When we received our I Am Cardboard viewing kit, putting it together took less than ten minutes, even though it included just the bare minimum of instructions. We also had to learn how to properly use the device, which takes advantage of magnets on the side to help activate or control the features and interactive environments. The process is similar to clicking the little lever on the side of a View-Master, but not quite as easy. It takes a couple of tries sometimes to make it work.

By the end of the day, our entire family had gotten a chance to explore the surface of Mars, walk across London’s Tower Bridge (including the upper level walkway), swim in Great Barrier Reef, stroll through natural history, fine art, and air and space museums, do a barrel roll with pilots, and drive around the Top Gear test track with The Stig. Imagine how this type of experience could help excite students in a classroom situation.

The 'Lego Education Mindstorms EV3 Programming' App is Now Available! ^ GeekMom ^ by Maryann Goldman

The 'Lego Education Mindstorms EV3 Programming' App is Now Available! ^ GeekMom ^ by Maryann Goldman | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Today, I was excited to discover that the Lego Education Mindstorms EV3 Programming app is now available from the App Store for iPads with iOS 8.0 or later.

Previously, if you wanted to program the EV3 robot, you had to use a PC or Mac. That can be somewhat limiting, if you are running a class and don’t have enough PCs or Macs to go around or if your child is already used to programming with other iPad apps and enjoys the ease and flexibility of that environment. These days, it is somewhat expected that there’s an app for everything, so I’m pleased to report that the EV3 software environment has come of age.

16-Year-Old Creates a Working Laser Engraver From 2 DVD Drives & 3D Printed Parts for $30 ^ 3DPrint.com ^ by Eddie Krassenstein | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

BY EDDIE KRASSENSTEIN 

 

“I had an unused DVD drive laying around,” Wunderlich tells 3DPrint.com. “One day I was bored, so I started taking it apart and found a wonderful little linear unit. I decided to continue taking apart the DVD drive and found two laser diodes. One laser diode was infrared, and one was red. I tested them by connecting them to 2 AA batteries and found the red laser [worked quite well]. I am always looking for new projects, so I started to think what I could build out of these parts”
