These Interactive Maps Compare 19th Century American Cities to Today

These Interactive Maps Compare 19th Century American Cities to Today | school | Scoop.it

" The Smithsonian Magazine recently dipped into David Rumsey's collection of over 150,000 maps to find some of the best representations of American cities over the past couple hundred years. With some simple programming, they were able to overlay images of vintage maps of some major cities onto satellite images from today. The results are fascinating."

The Smithsonian Magazine overlayed maps of American cities for the past centuries with modern satellite images to show differences in the development and planning and the growth of the cities.

The growth and change of the cities changed over the years on how it was achieved and how far it could be expanded due to new technology and movement of people to urban areas. The technology helped achieved a certain hold over the environment to build more urban spaces.

Who’s Who in Bitcoin: Alt-Coin Advocate Dennison Bertram | IEEE Spectrum | school | Scoop.it

Bertram suggests that a Bitcoin staging ground is vital to realizing the cryptocurrency’s full potential.

 

Don’t be fooled by the US $100-plus exchange rate. Bitcoin is an experiment—a work in progress. Even the core developers of Bitcoin admit that it is still in beta. After all, the concept of a peer-to-peer digital currency was introduced only a little more than four years ago, and we still have much to learn about how it works, what its vulnerabilities are, and what its true potential is.

The Secret Heritage of Game Based Learning | school | Scoop.it
Schools are popping up across the country where game-like learning gets incorporated into everything from the curriculum and pedagogy to the entire school environment. Kids learn through “quests,” instead of worksheets.
