Social ArtSci Networked Discourse (SAND) is a new paradigm of teaching as a social network and discourse to address issues that require multi-faceted considerations and point of view. No one can claim authority alone but Professors can design a conceptual platform and engage students who teach what they learn. They become part of an international social network of professional artists and scientists who engage in research that addresses issues raised in class. Language barriers are crossed by having international students who are bi-lingual act as discourse leaders / teachers while bringing back to class different points of view. Time zone and schedule problems are addressed by having local group dialogues recorded and added to the resource.

Human Beings are Information-Seeking Creatures (w/video)

Human Beings are Information-Seeking Creatures (w/video) | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

The Internet has revolutionized the way we connect and the way we think, speeding up the rate of virtually everything. At times, having so many facts at your fingertips can feel less like an upside and more like a deluge. (There's a reason why Gleick's book is subtitled "a flood.") But fundamental cultural and technological shifts in our relationship to information are hardly unprecedented. They're "part of the evolution of the species," he says.

Researchers in the Flow Simulations and Analysis Group at George Washington University (GWU) and USA Swimming are using Tecplot to analyze the stroke cycles of elite swimmers to develop more effective training procedures based on a swimmer’s specific body profile. USA Swimming, the main governing body for swimming rules and training in the U.S., submitted full 3D body scans of Olympic swimmers Lenny Krayzelburg and Gabrielle Rose to the GWU team that would become prototypes of typical elite swimmers.

This project is an exploration of the use of rhinoscripting – specifically in terms of data interpretation. The script takes data from a GPS, heart rate monitor, and stopwatch. During a 12 mile run, I tracked my heart rate, pace, latitude/longitude and elevation. This data was then interpreted by the script – generating a form that visualizes the relationship of the data to one another.
