Real-Time Co-Working Over Any Web App with Sugarbox

Via Robin Good
Robin Good's curator insight, November 25, 2013 1:00 PM

Sugarbox is a free web app which allows you to share any web app you are working on with anyone you wish to collaborate with.

To use it, you simply go to the web app, open it and then click on the Sugarbox bookmarklet, and you are ready to invite anyone to co-work with you, in real-time, on that app.

Once you are collaborating with someone you can see their cursor and their name in real time. You can text chat and annotate the screen.

A unique feature also allows you to easily record what's being shown on the screen, including your cursor movements, and can be easily shared with anyone. 

My comment: Excellent resource if you want to collaborate in real-time with someone else on the same app. 

Free to use.

Try it out now:

Stop Poachers from Tracking Tigers with GPS Collars

Remote tracking devices used to study endangered tigers have been ending up in the wrong hands, allowing poachers to hunt this species more easily. Urge conservation groups to ensure that poachers never have a chance to access tracking technology.

Internet ha transformado nuestras vidas. Es con mucho una de las revoluciones más importantes que ha experimentado la humanidad y va a seguir cambiando nuestra sociedad en los próximos años.Sin duda la red nos ofrece innumerables oportunidades y es una herramienta indispensable que tiende a reducir las diferencias entre aquellos que tenemos la suerte de vivir en el denominado primer mundo.En nuestra avanzada sociedad, pese a existir aún reductos de marginación y pobreza, los problemas más acuciantes tienen mucho que ver con la educación de los niños.La falta de valores y referentes está marcando de forma indeleble el comportamiento de nuestros hijos. Y el ámbito donde mejor se mueven es precisamente el de la red, donde también es necesario regirse por unos valores y referentes que les permitan atajar los problemas con los que se van a encontrar día a día.La intimidad propia y ajena debe ser un concepto que los chicos deben tener claro.Los límites de lo que pueden subir a la red deben conocerlos y deben saber que la verdadera amistad es mucho más que un amigo virtual.Las consecuencias de una burla en la red son demoledoras e infinitas por definición.Es perfectamente posible que un desconocido pueda contactar con un menor y es una realidad incuestionable que los niños pasan demasiadas horas delante del ordenador sin hacer deporte, sin leer un buen libro y sin un adulto de referencia que le ayude a discriminar lo que le conviene de lo que no.Y por supuesto pueden acceder a contenidos claramente inadecuados para su edad. La red es algo cotidiano en nuestras vidas y algo indispensable en la de nuestros hijos.Es nuestra responsabilidad educarles en el buen uso de la misma y ejercer la patria potestad también en el mundo virtual. Un mundo donde los problemas son absolutamente reales.

Getting and Keeping Computer Science Teachers in K-12 | Computer Science Teachers Association

With the recent publication of the new CSTA report Bugs in the System: Computer Science Teacher Certification in the U.S. CSTA has shone another white hot spotlight on the systemic barriers that keep good teachers from becoming computer science teachers. Today, however, I've been thinking about what comes next and I"ve realized that there is almost no discussion about keeping the good teachers we have. When are we going to start dealing with the fact that we are driving great CS teachers away from our classrooms?


The U.S. is only one nation that is now grappling with how to entice people with computer science knowledge into teaching. In Britain, for example, the British Computer Society (BCS) is administering a government-funded program that will award a number of $38,000 grants to new computer science teachers. Those not successful with the BCS grants may still qualify for a grant of $30,000 if they have a strong computer science academic record.


Right now, we only dream of such a program in the U.S. But even if we had one, the sad truth is that we would lose far too many of the teachers we attracted. According to the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future, one-third of all new teachers leave after three years, and 46 percent are gone within five years. In other words, half of the investment made in recruiting, training, and hiring new teachers is lost within the first five years.

This is from Esri's education team, especially Joseph Kerski.  Have you wanted to use GPS data on GIS but thought it's too hard?  This will coach you through the process.  "I have created a new series of videos on the Esri Education Team’s YouTube Channel and on my geography channel that describes the process of gathering field data with GPS and mapping and analyzing it with GIS in educational contexts."
