Show Me Your Badge

Show Me Your Badge | cool stuff from research | Scoop.it
Information-age credentials may be the first serious competitor to traditional degrees since college-going became the norm.

 

AT the end of “Fundamentals of Atomic Force Microscopy,” a short online course offered by Purdue University, students who score at least 60 percent on the final exam will receive an e-mail with a file attached. It will contain a picture of a blue-and-white circle, roughly one inch in diameter, embossed with the stylized image of an atomic force microscope bouncing a laser beam off a cantilever into a photodiode, which is how scientists take photographs and measure the size of very small (nanoscale) things.

 

The picture is a digital badge, a new type of credential being developed by some of the most prominent businesses and learning organizations in the world, including Purdue, Carnegie Mellon, the University of California, the Smithsonian, Intel and Disney-Pixar. The badge movement is being spearheaded by the Mozilla Foundation, best known for inventing the free Firefox Web browser, the choice of nearly one-quarter of all Internet users worldwide.

Digital Communications Revolution

Digital Communications Revolution | cool stuff from research | Scoop.it

... Let’s recap that revolution. Over the past five years, 21% of GDP growth in mature
economies came from the open Internet. Growth will spread east and south as
broadband connections via mobile in emerging economies smash through
developed world’s subscriptions in 2013, as reported in the World Economic
ForumGlobal Information Technology Report 2012. If the members of Facebook
were part of a single sovereign state, it would be the third-largest country in the
world; and its terms of service is looking more like a constitution determining
people’s rights than an ignored contract with a service provider. ...

Ciudad de sombras // City of shadows (by Alexey Titarenko)

Ciudad de sombras // City of shadows (by Alexey Titarenko) | cool stuff from research | Scoop.it
Alexey Titarenko has photographed Saint Petersburg since he was 8-years-old. In fact, he says, he has dedicated his whole life to the city. Titarenko sees his photographs as reflecting the history of his city, and Russia, over the past 20 years.

“Through the prism of my native city, I attempt to show events that occurred not only here, but throughout the country – the changes, the catastrophies, and the human tragedies, which have swept this city and the people of this land.”

New technologies are blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual world. The brain can control a machine, and even perceive it as its own body. Can that improve our lives?
