Google Puts Online 10,000 Works of Street Art from Across the Globe | Open Culture

Google Puts Online 10,000 Works of Street Art from Across the Globe | Open Culture | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

Since last we wrote, Google Street Art has doubled its online archive by adding some 5,000 images, bringing the tally to 10,000, with coordinates pinpointing exact locations on all five continents (though as of this writing, things are a bit thin on the ground in Africa). Given the temporal realities of outdoor, guerrilla art, pilgrims may arrive to find a blank canvas where graffiti once flourished. (RIP New York City’s 5 Pointz, the “Institute of Higher Burning.”)

A major aim of the project is virtual preservation. As with performance art, documentation is key. Not all of the work can be attributed, but click on an image to see what is known. Guided tours to neighborhoods rich with street art allow armchair travelers to experience the work, and interviews with the artists dispel any number of stereotypes.

Cultural institutions like Turkey’s Pera Museum and Hong Kong’s Art Research Institute, and street art projects based in such hubs as Rome, Paris, Sydney, and Bangkok, have pulled together official collections of photos and videos, but you can play curator too.

How to Hook up an iPad to Printer - iPadable

How to Hook up an iPad to Printer - iPadable | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
Apple iPad can be used to do a lot of things such as take pictures and videos and then edit them or you can go and play a lot of nice games, or you can can just go online and browse the Internet or maybe integrate yourself into social hubs like Facebook, Twitter or Google.

But sometimes you also use your iPad for productivity, and create some files, documents, tables, graphs and so on. The main advantage of the iPad is on course its portability. You can take it to the meetings and write your memos and sketches directly on it. And the good thing is that this portability means that you are able to have it with you, all the time with all the documents and files you need.

In case you decide to change some of them you’ve also a sync option that helps you get the same version in all your devices (iPad and Desktop or Laptop). So basically there is no need for printing your documents since you have it with you all the times in digital format. Still, for those of you who really need to actually print some things, here are the ways to Hook up an iPad to Printer and get going.

Teaching with EdTech : Engage. Assess. Digitize. Socrative!

Teaching with EdTech : Engage. Assess. Digitize. Socrative! | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
Digital tools have been key to data driven real time assessment. Many schools have bought into class sets of clicker response systems so that teachers can set-up their own virtual assessment or assess instantly on the spot. Now that schools are buying into more high-tech tools such as tablets, app developers like Socrative have designed a digital platform for tablets to have the same, if not more, features as these clickers. I have recently shared the Socrative app into the Cube for Teachers database as an assessment tool.
