Comparing Texts to Aid Noticing

Comparing Texts to Aid Noticing | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it

QuickDiff is an interesting tool that analyses differences in two very similar texts. It was actually developed for examining programming code, but could be a really useful tool to use with students to get them to look more closely at the texts they write and notice the mistakes and corrections and differences in the text.

D-Day as it happens care of Channel 4 TV we b twitter amazing. stunning interactive detailed ,multimedia to timeline... | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it
Experience D-Day in real time by following seven real people who were there. Stories, pictures and video of the decisive World War II battle. I recently rediscovered my late mothers adult written description of her recollection of the mobilisation of the massed troop movements for D-day. Like all verbal/written history I can cite plenty of instances when it is not that accurate. But with this fantastic multimedia production and some corroborating evidence for her account. I am going to find her words and publish them in memory of all those brave souls. How multimedia and digital resources help. I have found archive pictures showing the tanks stacked in procession all through the village we grew up in on the eve of D-day only a few days ago.They were living near Liphook on Sir William Duprees estate . I had heard Eisenhower addressed the troops at the Devils Punch Bowl. Did he I wonder, tonight's timeline now places him not far away in Newbury the day before...Very moving programme astonishing archive footage and just maybe I understand my Mum,s words and feelings that little bit more. John Snow doing what he does best. Deep connections and insights bring history that little bit closer. It is a long late sunny night in blighty this evening before D-Day anniversary. Archives show troops opening orders about 10pm maps and code names of the beaches. It is being run as a timeline all night real-time. Very surreal and scary. What and whoever you believe in bless them one and all. What an experience thank you Channel 4. They have even got the speech Eisenhower had in his pocket in case it all went wrong. What a horrific responsibility, at 6:35am tomorrow when we might be struggling to wake they were landing on the beaches.

Changing literacies for a digital future. 

David Cook's curator insight, August 7, 2014 10:34 PM

I found this to be a lot of bark with no bite.  But that's may be because I'm already sold on the need for digital literacy in education, and am much more interested in reading about specific content, frameworks, curriculum, etc.
