Palmer Luckey is a guy with a definite vision, one of virtual reality transforming not only how video games are played in the living room—but also changing the way teachers conduct their classroom, how doctors perform surgeries at a hospital. Consider, Luckey says, the opportunity of allowing every school child to [...]
"Gamification is not really games; it’s the use of game-like elements to facilitate learning. You can’t simply push knowledge to your learners solely through games without incorporating the other essential elements of eLearning. Let’s look at the why and the how of incorporating gamification."
In a state with the highest percentage of forested land and a long, famously scenic coastline, where timber and fisheries remain at the heart of the economy, climate change has become an immediate concern. Heat waves, more powerful storms, and rising seas are increasingly transforming Maine -- effects that most climate scientists trace to greenhouse gases warming the planet. Wedged between powerful streams of cold and warm air, the state is buffeted by climate fluctuations in the arctic and the
A non-profit is offering a $15 million dollar prize to the private technology company that can develop a free, open-source scaleable software that children around the world can use to teach themselves reading and math.
Hidden at the edge of an industrial park near the Phoenix airport, housed in a handful of utilitarian buildings with no grassy quadrangles or ivy crawling up red brick, Rio Salado Community College doesn’t look much like a typical higher-education institution.
It doesn’t act like one, either.
Rio Salado has just 23 full-time faculty, so few they fit into a ring of offices around a single common room, which helps keep its tuition comparatively low. Yet it serves more than 60,000 students, a disproportionate number of whom are low-income and attend part-time and online — characteristics other colleges have found make students tough to keep enrolled.
Thanks to a barrage of support, however, Rio Salado boasts a graduation rate four times that of comparable schools, U.S. Department of Education figures show.
There are 600 courses that start on almost any Monday of the year, for instance — not just according to a rigid academic calendar of two semesters. There’s an automated program that can predict, by the eighth day of a course, how well a student will do, triggering extra help if necessary — and a separate alert system that intervenes when faculty raise red flags, or a student fails to log into an online course, or makes an above-average number of calls to the technology help desk.
Brain-to-brain communication was achieved recently using brain-computer interfaces, computer-brain interfaces, electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings and the internet. The developers of this brain-to-brain communication system demonstrated the transmission of information between conscious human brains without use of motor or peripheral sensory systems. This means that the information was sent from one mind to another mind without talking […]
