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.
Sometimes all virtual reality needs to do to blow your mind is put you in a well-polished sandbox and let you screw around. Owlchemy Labs has mastered this art, with the upcoming VR title Job Simulator.

How did you get into cyberlearning?
My background is in mathematics and computer science. When I was a graduate student, somebody mentioned these systems that can translate what you say into a different language. I speak six languages, so I thought what was the best pathway for me to be helping people translate language? Somebody suggested I look into applied linguistics or computational linguistics. So I read a bunch about it. I went off and did a Masters in German, and ended up writing some language translation code. Then when I came to Purdue, and we had all these international students coming in and working as TAs in STEM courses, and their English language skills weren’t great. The state had a rule (I think or at least the university did) that everybody who was a TA had to go through this test that includes spoken English to evaluate if they are at a level to teach in a classroom. As a TA myself, they made me go take this test. I had to sit in front of this tape machine and record responses, turning it on and off at the right time. It was a real drag. I asked my advisor at that time: How can I change this stuff? She suggested writing some assessment code to help capture and automatically grade stuff, route it cooperatively to raters, and so on. So I said okay, let me learn how to do that. I ended up writing a system that Purdue used to evaluate TAs. And that’s how I got into computer-assisted assessment systems.

The first thing I needed to do was get used to using Arduino and some simple projects. My first one was making a LED turn on. It was just plugging a few things in and running the code, but it was cool to watch it turn on because I did it.
