REVIEW: Teach Programming Logic Through Gameplay with the Lightbot App - FRACTUS LEARNING

REVIEW: Teach Programming Logic Through Gameplay with the Lightbot App - FRACTUS LEARNING | kbabic | Scoop.it
Lightbot is an addictively fun puzzle game that is the perfect platform for introducing programming concepts to your students. Using sequential commands, students create simple programs to direct their Lightbot (Girlbot or Boybot) through a 3-dimensional grid on their mission to ‘light up’ the world of tiles. With no explicit coding required and a fun and tactile interface, Lightbot is an excellent starting point to get your class on the path to programming.

Your Smartphone Could be Tracking You Every 3 Minutes, Study Says

Your Smartphone Could be Tracking You Every 3 Minutes, Study Says | kbabic | Scoop.it
Smartphone apps regularly collect large amounts of data on users’ locations, sometimes as often as every three minutes, new research suggests.

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University conducted a study where they asked 23 people to use their Android smartphones normally, and tracked location data requests from each device with specially designed software, the Wall Street Journal reports. The researchers found that many popular Android apps tracked their users an average 6,200 times per participant over a two-week period, or about every three minutes.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 25, 2015 12:42 PM

In many schools, using personal digital devices is forbidden. Which means they hold them under the desk or turn to shield the teacher's view while they use them anyway and not for learning purposes. How much better if educators feel more comfortable and confident with teaching kids how to use personal devices responsibly. . .and for learning.

Kevin Carey talks about his new book, 'The End of College' | kbabic | Scoop.it

The End of College takes the long view in diagnosing a higher education business model that Carey says is desperately flawed. He goes back centuries to describe how colleges developed scattered and disjointed missions. Carey also looks forward, to how information technology could help birth a more affordable and meritocratic form of higher education. Inside Higher Ed sent some questions about the book to Carey via email. The exchange is below.

Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!
