One of the justifications for teaching computing and coding is that “computational thinking” is a useful skill for pupils to have, in order to apply it in wide variety of situations. A worthy aim, but I’ve heard very few convincing examples given.

What to Do when an App Crashes

What to Do when an App Crashes | Computer Science | Scoop.it

Almost every app in the App Store has at least one review from an angry user who makes claims of crashes. While there are times when an app will have an unknown glitch that will cause it to freeze or shut down entirely, it is not usually because the developer is a “scam artist” trying to “steal your money” or make a buck off of shoddy work.

Oftentimes, the problem can be resolved on your end with just a little effort. So, before you accuse some poor independent developer who sunk his entire life’s savings into developing an app of being a scam artist, try these simple tricks first.

What Is Visualization?

What Is Visualization? | Computer Science | Scoop.it

This seems like a straightforward question, but it’s proven to be a difficult one to answer. Even visualization researchers don’t have a clear definition.

 

Is it synonymous with information graphics? Does visualization have to be computer generated? Does data have to be involved, or can it be abstract? The answers vary depending on who you ask.

 

Visualization is a medium. It’s not just an analysis tool nor just a way to prove a point more clearly through data.

 

Visualization is like books. There are different writing styles and categories, there are textbooks and there are novels, and they communicate ideas in different ways for varied purposes. And just like authors who use words to communicate, there are rules that you should always follow and others that are guidelines that you can bend and break...

The Hello Ruby book will be a 32 page hardcover that covers the traditional story of friendship, being different, and technology. Rather than an artsy how-to, the book will tell the story of Ruby, a small girl who visits castles and solves problems with wise penguins.

"We instinctively thick in narrative," says Liukas. "Instead of just giving kids iPad applications that react once, I think theres longer term value in this style."
