Esri Story Map Treasure Hunt | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Although these were designed specifically for GIS day during Geography Awareness Week, these 2 excellent map-based treasure hunts from ESRI are great any time of year.  The answer to the question will only pop up in you are zoomed in the the right region (SHIFT + Make a box = Zoom to area).  These links will take you to the World Cities quiz and also to the Mountains quiz.

Very Nice.

Brian Wilk's curator insight, March 10, 6:58 PM

These quizzes/maps are entertaining and fun, with the benefit of a geography education all wrapped up in a neat easy to use interactive tool. I learn information from this site because it is so fun and easy to navigate. I encourage everyone to take a peek, test your knowledge against these quizzes and see how you fare. You can't lose; if you don't know the answer, you will find it in the quiz.

The Power of Mobile Learning

The Power of Mobile Learning | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Another way to think about it is where learners are in their development. We use formal learning when they’re novices, and don’t know what they need or why they need it.  Once they’re on the job, when they’re practitioners, they know what they need and just want access to it.  The role of performance support …

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

 Native American youth throughout the country face a set of unique and daunting challenges. This population faces high rates of poverty and suicide as well as low graduation rates.

"Native youth and Native education are in a state of emergency. Low rates of educational attainment perpetuate a cycle of limited opportunity for higher education or economic success for American Indians and Alaska Natives," says a damning report on the state of Native American youth the White House released in December. "This crisis has grave consequences for Native nations, who need an educated citizenry to lead their governments, develop reservation economies, contribute to the social well-being of Native communities, and sustain Indian cultures."

Applications for the grant money -- which ask tribal communities to propose a project that would improve the quality of educational opportunities available for native youth -- are due this summer.

Artificial intelligence cannot replicate human consciousness, say Irish researchers in new study.

 

In a recently published paper, "Is Consciousness Computable? Quantifying Integrated Information Using Algorithmic Information Theory," Phil Maguire, co-director of the BSc degree in computational thinking at National University of Ireland, Maynooth, and his co-authors demonstrate that, within the model of consciousness proposed by Giulio Tononi, the integrated information in our brains cannot be modeled by computers.
