Math, Science, and Music

Math, Science, and Music | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

Via The Scout Report

 

"Math, Science, and Music is one of our favorite educational resources for two reasons. First - the project is truly interdisciplinary, offering resources that may appeal to educators from a wide variety of disciplines. Second - although this resource is designed for the classroom, it contains much that may appeal more broadly to anyone generally curious about music, sound, science, or math.

 

"Developed by the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, in collaboration with a number of educational experts from top universities around the U.S., Math, Science, and Music is a remarkable collection of educational resources designed to engage learners of all ages with math, science, music, and the areas where these three disciplines intersect. As of this writing, this collection contains ten teacher toolkits. In one toolkit, Music Cognition, visitors will find a series of video lectures about the links between music, psychology, and neuroscience. These lectures are led by jazz composer and Harvard Professor Vijay Iyer and neuroscientist Ed Large and could be incorporated into a number of high school and college classrooms. Another toolkit, Making Music Count, includes interactive lesson plans and classroom activities designed to help elementary and middle school students explore beats, ratios, and patterns in music. Additionally, Scratch Jazz is an interactive program that enables users to compose their own jazz tunes while learning coding skills. While these resources are aimed at educators, they will also appeal to any curious member of the general public. The highly interactive nature of these resources makes them ideal for youth centers, museums, libraries, and other out-of-school learning environments."

Alexa and Siri Can Hear This Hidden Command. You Can’t. - The New York Times | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

Over the last two years, researchers in China and the United States have begun demonstrating that they can send hidden commands that are undetectable to the human ear to Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant. Inside university labs, the researchers have been able to secretly activate the artificial intelligence systems on smartphones and smart speakers, making them dial phone numbers or open websites. In the wrong hands, the technology could be used to unlock doors, wire money or buy stuff online — simply with music playing over the radio.

Broussard has been programming since she was 11, but she has come to realize that the long-held utopian promises haven’t delivered. Now, she says, it’s time to be more critical, think about the limits of computers, and stop excluding equations from the system.
