PIRatE Lab's insight:

This looks super cool.  A much simplified version of PowerPoint and might be more intuitive for many of you.  Give it a try and let me know if you like this.

  Voici un projet encore en beta permettant de créer gratuitement des présentations de type prezi like via la librairie open source impress.js ( plutôt pour geek seule)  et donc  voila de quoi ravir la communauté enseignante qui dispose d'une véritable alternative au classique diaporama parce que strut autorise de travailler en ligne ou hors ligne sans avoir besoin d'un compte chez un quelconque éditeur. à surveiller de près

Is the traditional research university doomed to extinction in a digital age? - World leading higher education information and services | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
Looking back on 40 years in universities as I retire next week, I recall being witness to many brilliant advances in human knowledge. But my career has also spanned a gradual undermining of the research university ideal. The modern research university arose out of a vision of students learning through their own empirical observations. Its …

Cokie Roberts Answers Your Questions About A President's First 100 Days

Cokie Roberts Answers Your Questions About A President's First 100 Days | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
In the segment #AskCokie, commentator Cokie Roberts answers listener questions and looks at how past presidents have fared in their first 100 days in office.
PIRatE Lab's insight:
This is a great example of one of the traps with traditional humanities-type and quantification-afraid approaches to dealing with policy challenges.  One of the questioners asks Mrs. Roberts about the correlation between Presidential Performance in the first 100 days and subsequent "success" as a President.  This is a no brainer and should be a slam dunk to answer.  It calls for a mere correlation/regression approach...but the answer given is merely a handwaving exercise that avoids answering the question, gives no correlation, and provides only anecdotes.  This approach does not materially advance the understanding of the issue nor add to our informed debate.

Nando Castellanos's curator insight, May 15, 1:09 PM
Nowadays, we find that videos are used, and indeed useful, for many purposes, like for instance, marketing, propaganda, music, among others. But what concerns us is to know that videos have taken a very important role in education. We use videos to present a class, to engage students, to give examples, to give information, to entertain students, as listening activities, etc. Therefore, I consider that this article is very helpful since sometimes it becomes hard to find background music for the videos we create. This article establishes how important videos have became last years, and then, it presents 10 recommendable web sites to get background music for our videos.

Without hardware, there is no science. From Hooke’s microscope to the Hubble telescope, instruments are modern science’s platforms for producing knowledge. But limited access to scientific tools impedes the progress and reach of science by restricting the type of people who can participate in research, favouring those who have access to well-resourced laboratories in industrial …

Why Scratch is one of my favorite cross – curricular tools | SCHS Media Blog

Why Scratch is one of my favorite cross – curricular tools | SCHS Media Blog | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
I can’t remember the first time I used Scratch.  I am fairly certain it wasn’t before I started my library life, so sometime in the past three years?  My vague memories should not be any indicator of my feelings about Scratch though.  I love Scratch! For those uninitiated, Scratch is a drag and drop coding platform created by the folks at MIT’s Media Lab, an innovative, tech focused, research facility located in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Using color- coded, drag and drop blocks, Scratch demystifies computer programing, builds creative thinking and problem solving skills, and encourages students to learn by doing.

PIRatE Lab's insight:
Mostly really good examples here.  These are the things I have been encouraging my students to not do or outright banning them from doing.  It is funny how many of these things are apparently encouraged by the "experts" they seek council from.

These are solid suggestions you should all take to heart as you prep your CVs and resumes for the job market.

The Next Big Blue-Collar Job Is Coding

The Next Big Blue-Collar Job Is Coding | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
WHEN I ASK people to picture a coder, they usually imagine someone like Mark Zuckerberg: a hoodied college dropout who builds an app in a feverish 72-hour programming jag—with the goal of getting insanely rich and, as they say, “changing the world.”

But this Silicon Valley stereotype isn’t even geographically accurate. The Valley employs only 8 percent of the nation’s coders. All the other millions? They’re more like Devon, a programmer I met who helps maintain a ­security-software service in Portland, Oregon. He isn’t going to get fabulously rich, but his job is stable and rewarding: It’s 40 hours a week, well paid, and intellectually challenging. “My dad was a blue-­collar guy,” he tells me—and in many ways, Devon is too.
