Bringing the real word of academic writing to students in bite size chunks. Althouh students may not be identifying exactly what is necessary for an APA6th citation like they would using Endnote or Zotero this is a great way to get students used to thinking about providing correct evidential proof of what is influencing their thinking.

Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces

Imagining A Future City Filled With Driverless Cars And Without Any Parking Spaces | emerging learning | Scoop.it

As self-driving cars move from fantasy to reality, what kind of effect will they have on cities?

A research and urban prototyping project called Shuffle City investigates, and in the process, becomes a manifesto for a new kind of modern city--one that depends less on traditional public transportation like buses or light rail and more on creating a fleet of continuously moving automated vehicles to serve urban mobility needs.

Shuffle City looks at the new possibilities that could arise from cities transitioning to cars without drivers. If cars were put into some constant flow as a public good, and if people didn’t all have their own vehicles, there would be no need for the concrete wastelands and lifeless towers that serve as a parking infrastructure in the urban landscapes of car-centric cities like Phoenix and Los Angeles (Under the current ownership model, the average car spends 21 hours per day parked.)

The share of city space ruled by parking lots will shrink, making way for more green space, environmental buffers, workspace, housing, retail, and denser planning for more walkable cities...

Floating down a Tributary: A web interface for live and responsive visual coding

Floating down a Tributary: A web interface for live and responsive visual coding | emerging learning | Scoop.it

All aboard? Prepare yourself for a voyage through parameter space as we embark on project Tributary! Tributary is a web interface for live and responsive visual coding. It includes a code editor and provides some popular javascript libraries for visual programming. The core concept of tributary comes from the inspirational Bret Victor video and the implementation is derived from Gabriel Florit’s water project.

 

Tributary is aimed at being a learning tool and a playground for visual programming. It has already been useful to me as a rapid prototyping tool for data visualization, and I also enjoy using it to come up with unexpected visual effects and optical illusions. I hope that it can also serve as a great learning tool for those who are new to interactive visual programming in javascript as well.

 

Tributary uses d3.js and SVG to provide graphics rendering capabilities. All tributary really does is provide an svg element. When the code in the editor is changed, the svg element is emptied and the code is evaluated. The assumption here is that the code will draw something in the svg element. The editor has been modified so that whenever you click on a number or a color string an interactive slider or color picker will pop up. Moving the slider will modify the number and redraw (by re-executing the code for each number change) automatically, allowing you to quickly see how a certain value affects your visualization.

 

Besides d3.js, tributary code snippets have access to Underscore.js and Backbone.js as well as jQuery. The code editor is powered by CodeMirror, with the color picker powered byColor Picker and the sliders powered by jQuery UI.

 

This project excites me everyday, mostly because it makes coding a much more interactive experience which also makes it much easier to code with other people. Because you get instant visual feedback it’s also possible to code live in front of other people in a way that wasn’t exciting before. As a teaching tool your words come alive as you type out the code and as a rapid prototyping tool you can iterate quickly with a domain expert as they suggest changes or ask interesting questions.

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, October 20, 2014 10:53 PM

It is important to build your own brand and to promote yourself positively. You want to be polite to other users and make sure you have nothing on your profile that could be damaging to your reputation. This includes swear words, inappropriate or rude comments, and pictures and videos of drinking or drugs.  This is really important for graduating students who, most likely, need to go through and delete pictures that have been tagged in one Facebook

Make sure you give credit to others if you share something of theirs. Also make sure you are writing your own posts and not just sharing others. However, make sure you are posting valuable and relevant information. Listen and think before you write and make sure you are using proper english. 

It is okay to have debates on social netowrks with other users, everybody has the right ti voice their opinion, but don't let things get too personal or nasty. 

It is also essential to understand that there are also hings to be very careful of when using social networks. For one, people are not always who they seem. You should also make sure you do not assume a false identity. It is important to keep some kind of professionalism, but don't change yourself or hide who you really are. 

You must also make sure you are abiding by the rules of the network and report others who dont. 

Last but certainly not least, be very careful about who you share things with. There are certain places to share certain things. For example, you may post something bout your personal life in your Facebook status, but it is not appropriate to do so on your LinkedIn profile. Do not share pictures and videos with strangers, you never know how they will use these.

Generation YES » Youth & Educators Succeeding | emerging learning | Scoop.it

Generation YES is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) with a mission to empower students and teachers to use technology to improve education in their own school. Our school-friendly online tools and innovative project-based curriculum build a learning community where students work alongside their teachers as technology leaders, collaborators and mentors. 15 years of research experience and proven scientific results show that when schools trust and collaborate with their students to integrate technology, academic success follows.

 

We believe in Participatory Learning - where students and teachers work together to create optimal conditions for learning in every classroom; where students are agents of change, rather than objects of change.

GenYes has been a great idea that's weathered the test of time. Students help teachers with technology. What better role reversal could there be?  If your school is struggling with tech support, the answer is right here.  Even if your school is cruising along with great tech infrastructure, letting the kids take over is one of the best things you can do to prepare a modern learner.

A groundbreaking project called Aireal lets you actually feel virtual objects

A groundbreaking project called Aireal lets you feel virtual objects. Aireal is the result of research by University of Illinois PhD student Rajinder Sodhi and Disney Reseach’s Ivan Poupyrev. When set by your television or connected to an iPad, this diminutive machine will puff air rings that allow you to actually feel objects and textures in midair — no special controllers or gloves required.

 

The machine itself is essentially a set of five speakers in a box — subwoofers that track your body through IR, then fire low frequencies through a nozzle to form donut-like vortices.

 

In practice, Aireal can do anything from creating a button for you to touch in midair to crafting whole textures by pulsing its bubbles to mimic water, stone, and sand. … A single Aireal could conceivably support multiple people, and a grid of Aireals could create extremely immersive rooms, creating sensations like a flock of birds flying by.
