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.

The Hype—and Hope—of Artificial Intelligence - The New Yorker

The Hype—and Hope—of Artificial Intelligence - The New Yorker | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Much like “the cloud,” “big data,” and “machine learning” before it, the term “artificial intelligence” has been hijacked by marketers and advertising copywriters. A lot of what people are calling “artificial intelligence” is really data analytics—in other words, business as usual. If the hype leaves you asking “What is A.I., really?,” don’t worry, you’re not alone. I asked various experts to define the term and got different answers. The only thing they all seem to agree on is that artificial intelligence is a set of technologies that try to imitate or augment human intelligence. To me, the emphasis is on augmentation, in which intelligent software helps us interact and deal with the increasingly digital world we live in.

Five Ethical Considerations For Using Virtual Reality with Children and Adolescents :: Mind/Shift

Five Ethical Considerations For Using Virtual Reality with Children and Adolescents :: Mind/Shift | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it
Mark Suter teaches computer science and game design at Elida High School in Elida, Ohio. He’s been experimenting with VR in his classes as part of a project piloted by Seattle-based foundry10, a privately funded research organization that creates partnerships with educators to implement, research and explore the various intersections of emerging technologies and learning, including VR. Suter’s students both evaluate and design content for VR, and the 9/11 experience was available for those who wanted to try it. “I didn’t ask students to participate, but some wanted to try, and a few of those were emotionally moved,” Suter said. “They stated, ‘I knew it happened, but I never thought about what it was like for the people at the office that day. That felt horrible.’ This is both a flag to be watched closely for ethics violations, but also a testament of the platform’s immersion potential.”

And the technology’s potential for good is vast. It has already been used to help with autism, improve personal financial management, treat PTSD and manage pain. More and more news outlets, including the New York Times, are adopting immersive journalism, where news stories can be experienced through VR.

MIT researchers Steve Ramirez and Xu Liu recently made history when they successfully implanted a false memory into the mind of a mouse. The proof was a simple reaction from the rodent, but the implications are vast. They placed the furry little creature inside a metal box, and it froze, displaying a distinct fear response. The mouse was reacting as if it had received an electrical shock there, when it hadn’t at all.
