I am not an athlete. I lack coordination and have some physical limitations. My husband, on the other hand, is an excellent skier. He isn’t a teacher but he believed I could learn to ski, convinced me to try, and partnered with me in the learning process, like the best teachers do. Learning to ski taught me 10 coaching strategies bridging four areas: establishing a safe space to learn, sharing responsibility, providing feedback, and empowering the learner. I apply these strategies to facilitatin

10 stunning images show the beauty hidden in pi | Ana Swanson | WashPost.com | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

Saturday -- March 14, 2015, or 3/14/15 -- marks an extremely nerdy holiday. It is the official celebration of π, the magical, mathematical and infinite constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

For any circle you can imagine, if you divide the distance around the circle by the distance across it, you will get pi, or 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679821480865132823066470938446095505822317253594081284811174502841027019385…

We could keep going, but you get the picture.

Some people will celebrate the holiday by making and eating pies (Washington restaurants are offering specials on everything from pizza to banana cream). Others will run a Pi-K race of 3.14 kilometers. And some data tinkerers are making art that visualize pi’s infinite and random digits.

One of the best known of these data tinkerers is Martin Krzywinski, a scientist who specializes in bioinformatics, or using computer science and statistics to understand biological data. Krzywinski started publishing his pi art in 2013, beginning with this visualization:

Get Google Earth Pro for free - CNET

Get Google Earth Pro for free - CNET | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it
Most amazing of all, Google made this tool available for free. This despite an educational -- and, let's be honest, entertainment -- value that's virtually impossible to measure.

What you maybe didn't know is that Google has long offered a Pro version of Earth as well, one that cost a hefty $399 per year. Now, however, you can get Google Earth Pro absolutely free.

First things first: The words "free trial" still appear in that URL, but as you'll see when you click through to the sign-up page, "Sign up is no longer required for Google Earth Pro." All you have to do is download the installer, run it, then sign in using your e-mail address (as your username) and license code GEPFREE.

Do you remember when Google Earth first came online?  I do!  What a thrill to see the world flowing across your screen.  My teenage kids would take over the machine to search the world (usually starting with the location of our house).  


It was a thrill then, it's a thrill now.  Free Google Earth Pro. (Free is of course a relative term that we could philosophize over-- with Google you pay in data, not coin.  At least for now!

One school in Pennsylvania is using open-source tools wherever possible to keep students close to the code behind the machines they use. This stance is opposite to the very restrictive policies of many schools, but could allow students more freedom to explore what makes devices work.

Equil Smartmarker captures, digitizes and streams whiteboard notes | Stu Robarts | GizMag.com | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

The notes made on a whiteboard during a meeting or lecture might be important, but once the board is wiped they're gone. The Equil Smartmarker, however, can make sure that's not the case. It can capture whiteboard notes and stream them to computers and mobile devices.

The functionality of the Smartmarker is similar to that of the Smart Kapp whiteboard, which pairs with a nearby mobile device via Bluetooth to stream any notes made on it to the internet for remote viewing. The Smartmarker, however, does not require the use of a special whiteboard.

The Smartmarker comprises a sleeve, into which a normal dry erase pen slots, and a sensor. The sensor attaches to a magnetic strip that can be stuck to one side of the writing surface using its adhesive rear. It can be used on most surfaces, including walls painted with dry erase paint, glass and traditional whiteboards. It can sense an area of up to 16 ft (4.9 m) across and 5 ft (1.5 m) vertically.

The sleeve allows the user to write on the whiteboard surface as usual, with different electronic tips used to communicate the use of different color pens. The sleeve continually communicates its location to the sensor via ultrasonic positioning.
