Why Coding Should Be Considered an Essential Skill for the 21st Century | Toronto Tool Library

Why Coding Should Be Considered an Essential Skill for the 21st Century | Toronto Tool Library | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
*

“But kids need to go outside! They spend too much time staring at the screens!”
This is a typical rebuttal we get when we talk about teaching kids how to code. And yes, we wholeheartedly agree that kids need to run around outside and move their bodies, but we also think that teaching kids how to code, how to sense the world with technologies, and how electronics work will actually serve to reduce the amount of time they spend just staring at the screen.

We believe technical literacy should be taught as a creative tool, to empower kids to make things and gain crucial understanding about how the world around them works.

Irish libraries leading the way with digital developments | Seán Kyne TD

Irish libraries leading the way with digital developments | Seán Kyne TD | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
Libraries in Ireland are leading the way in expanding its digital services for members and tt is very clear that libraries are meeting the challenges posed by digital developments by grasping new opportunities and extending their services. One service of particular note is the ebook and audiobook lending service which is available free-of-charge to library members. Operated through a website or app entitled ‘BorrowBox’, members can avail of over 20,000 ebooks and over 9,000 digital audiobooks through their smartphone, tablet or computer. Similar to commercial book platforms, users can browse the extensive catalogue and borrow up to five ebooks and five audiobooks for a three week period. The service offers a range of books across all genres and incorporates both new releases and popular titles. In February there were over 2,000 loans each of ebooks and audiobooks. Furthermore, members can access over 1,300 national and international newspapers and over 300 magazines digitally using their membership card. In terms of physical books, Irish libraries have worked together to develop one national catalogue, support by a nationwide delivery service, from which members can use all library services, including borrowing items from any library in the country. This service is a world first. The use of digital technologies by the library service is very encouraging and shows clearly that our libraries are evolving and are as relevant and as important today as ever before. Work on the new public library strategy, ‘Our Public Libraries 2022: Inspiring, Connecting and Empowering Communities’ is an advanced stage and will be launched shortly by my colleague at the Department of Rural and Community Development, Minister Michael Ring TD.

Digital Scholarship Postdoctoral Fellowships and Bursaries 2018-19 | IASH

Digital Scholarship Postdoctoral Fellowships and Bursaries 2018-19 Applications are invited for postdoctoral bursaries from candidates in Digital Arts, Digital Humanities, Digital Education, Digital Design and Digital Social Sciences. Fellows will become involved in the College’s Digital Scholarship programme. IASH provides an enviable location in one of the world’s most intellectually inspiring cities, together with a dynamic network of international connections. The Digital Scholarship Initiative seeks to support work across the College by providing a programme of workshops, research seminars, bursary support and more. Find out more about the team, the steering group and their remit here. Digital Scholarship in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences is supported and guided by the Digital Scholarship Steering Group and the core project team. Home to the Scottish Enlightenment, Edinburgh has a rich cultural heritage of scholarship and creativity that continues to the present day. In this haven of libraries and archives, galleries and music venues – all set amid iconic architecture – IASH takes the humanities beyond campus to engage the public and work with organisations in a variety of different sectors. The Institute welcomes visiting researchers from across the world. Since 1970, over 1,200 Fellows have stepped through our doors. Up to 30 researchers are in residence at any one time in our amazing – and eclectic – eighteenth-century building just on the edge of the University’s central campus, boasting views of the Meadows. From upwards of 65 countries, IASH Fellows form a global alumni community, and many career-long connections begin at the Institute. What does an IASH Postdoctoral Fellowship offer? IASH hosts a lively scholarly community of visiting fellows. It is a supportive environment for postdoctoral researchers, while also offering networking opportunities with successful mid-career and eminent senior scholars. The Institute occupies a historic building with private courtyard and leafy views – perfect for uninterrupted thinking, reading and writing. Yet there is also plenty of opportunity to socialise and share ideas. In short, a 2018-2019 Digital Scholarship Postdoctoral Fellowship provides: Research visit at the University of Edinburgh for three to six months Bursary* of up to a maximum of £7,500 Dedicated office space, University e-mail and library access An allocated University mentor from an area relevant to the Fellows’ research interests Weekly Fellows’ Lunch to build community Collegial work-in-progress seminar series for testing new ideas Calendar of engaging events at the Institute and College Opportunities to participate in and design funded workshops, colloquia etc. at the Institute *) The bursary may be used to top up an existing postdoctoral Fellowship (e.g. British Academy), or as a contribution towards living expenses. Applicants are asked to indicate other sources of support for which they have applied and the expected date of outcome. No teaching is required, but successful applicants may be able to supplement the bursary by individually arranging their own concurrent teaching, though the Institute expects that a maximum commitment of 0.4 of a full time position will be dedicated to work other than the Postdoctoral Fellow’s individual research project. Who can apply? We warmly welcome applications from both within and beyond the University of Edinburgh. Applicants must have been awarded a doctorate at the time of application, and normally within the last three years (you must be able to produce a transcript, testamur, or a letter of completion/eligibility to graduate as part of your application). You should not have held a permanent position at a university, or a previous Fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Studies. Those who have held temporary and/or short-term appointments are eligible to apply. Application procedure The closing date The closing date for the receipt of applications is 30 April 2018. Applications received after that date will not be considered. Decisions will be communicated in July. Please ensure that you supply a valid email address so that you can be contacted quickly after decisions are made. The application form Please complete the online application form here. Any additional supporting documents connected with an application should be emailed to iash@ed.ac.uk. References In addition to the application form, a minimum of two and a maximum of three confidential references are required. Applicants should ask their referees to email their reference to the Director at iash@ed.ac.uk by 30 April 2018. Referees should comment on the nature and quality of the research proposal, as well as on the qualifications of the applicant. One referee should certify the successful viva (defence) and final examination of the candidate’s PhD thesis. Notes Consideration will be given to the academic record and the publications of all applicants and their capacity to disseminate their views among a community of like-minded people. Candidates must give evidence of any contact they have made with researchers at the University of Edinburgh, are required to make such contact before submitting their applications, and those who can evidence the relevance of their proposed project to the University of Edinburgh research community will be regarded favourably.  Particular weight will be placed on the quality and timeliness of the project proposed, and we encourage innovative and interdisciplinary topics and approaches.   For information about the scope of work undertaken at the University of Edinburgh, see Edinburgh Research Explorer, or browse through the staff pages of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.   Only fully completed formal applications will be considered. It is the responsibility of each applicant to ensure that all documentation is complete, and that referees submit their reports to IASH by the closing date. Candidates may like to submit a copy of any one article or publication that is thought to be especially relevant to the research proposal and Fellowship submission. It must be emphasised, however, that no such submitted publication will be returned to the candidate.   The Institute was established in 1969 by the then Faculty of Arts to promote enquiry of the highest standards in the Humanities, broadly conceived. It began to receive Fellows in 1970, and is now located as an independent institute within the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Science.  Inter-departmental and inter-disciplinary study has always been encouraged.   Fellows must make the Institute their main place of work for the duration of the Fellowship.  It is expected that Fellows will be in residence throughout the tenure of their Fellowship and will contribute fully to the life of the Institute during that time. Fellows will give at least one seminar presentation during their tenure as part of the College Digital Scholarship programme, and submit a series of blog posts or report on their research at the end of their Fellowship. No regular teaching is required.   Applicants looking for suitable accommodation in Edinburgh may find the links on this page useful In order to take full advantage of the seminars and lectures which take place during the semesters and to meet with staff in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, applicants are encouraged to apply for periods that will include at least part of one of the semesters.

Fourth Industrial Revolution | Explore | TOPLINK

Fourth Industrial Revolution | Explore | TOPLINK | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

The Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a fundamental change in the way we live, work and relate to one another. It is a new chapter in human development, enabled by extraordinary technology advances commensurate with those of the first, second and third industrial revolutions. These advances are merging the physical, digital and biological worlds in ways that create both huge promise and potential peril. The speed, breadth and depth of this revolution is forcing us to rethink how countries develop, how organisations create value and even what it means to be human. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is about more than just technology-driven change; it is an opportunity to help everyone, including leaders, policy-makers and people from all income groups and nations, to harness converging technologies in order to create an inclusive, human-centred future. The real opportunity is to look beyond technology, and find ways to give the greatest number of people the ability to positively impact their families, organisations and communities.

Turn walls into a giant touch screen with this paint developed by CMU and Disney | TribLIVE

Turn walls into a giant touch screen with this paint developed by CMU and Disney | TribLIVE | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

The walls have been forgotten.

 

In an era of smart home technology, where everything from your refrigerator to your thermostat, your front door lock to your shower, can be connected, interactive and controlled by artificial intelligence, the walls of your home have remained static, dumb, silently holding a roof over your head.

 

Until now.

 

A team of researchers in Carnegie Mellon University's Human-Computer Interaction Institute teamed up with Disney to develop a paint that can transform walls into giant trackpads, touch screens and sensors that can track movements, respond to gestures and detect when appliances and devices are in use. The technology, called Wall++, could allow you to move a light switch anywhere on a wall, control a video game projected on the wall by moving your hand or arm or set up your home to automatically adjust lights when a TV turns on or flicker the lights when your laundry is done.
