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.

Computational Thinking is the Star of The Science Behind Pixar

Computational Thinking is the Star of The Science Behind Pixar | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

The exhibition brings the Pixar production pipeline to life—from storyboard and concept art all the way to a final rendered frame. Throughout the exhibition, visitors can engage in hands-on, screen-based, and physical activities that let them explore the computational thinking skills integral to the Pixar process. Visitors can explore the creativity and artistry of Pixar filmmakers, and learn how computers are used as a filmmaking tool. In this exhibition, students and adults will learn about the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills needed in the 21st century workforce.

 

The Museum has been working in collaboration with Pixar on this exhibition for five years. The opportunity to collaborate with the artists and computer scientists at Pixar has been a great experience for our institution. What made the collaboration work so well is the fact that Pixar and the Museum of Science share a similar culture: We both value the roles interdisciplinary teams and iterative design play in the creative process.

 

Our initial plans called for a 5,000-square-foot exhibition. But that wasn’t big enough. We needed a bigger platform to show how computational thinking must become an essential part of the way schoolchildren learn how to breakdown complex problems into smaller steps, how to handle data, and how to test the design of their solutions.

Disney Research » Internet of Toys | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) will provide Internet connectivity to a broad variety of objects, such as industrial sensors, home appliances, and consumer electronics including toys. A new standardized IoT protocol software for wireless connectivity will enable toys to interoperate with other toys and smart objects around them. The IoT software will enable toys to be accessed, monitored, and acted on remotely. Our project CALIPSO (http://www.ict-calipso.eu) is partially funded by the research program of the European Commission. As part of this three-year project, Disney Research works together with several industry and academic partners to create an innovative solution for wireless IoT systems. The new CALIPSO communication protocol software enables toys to discover other objects, build mobile ad hoc networks, and communicate in a very energy-efficient way to maximize their battery lifetime. We envision several Disney-related scenarios in which the software will help creating innovative toy play patterns and experience designs.
