Insightful human portraits made from data

Insightful human portraits made from data | Appropriating Technology | Scoop.it
Artist R. Luke DuBois makes unique portraits of presidents, cities, himself and even Britney Spears using data and personality. In this talk, he shares nine projects -- from maps of the country built using information taken from millions of dating profiles to a gun that fires a blank every time a shooting is reported in New Orleans. His point: the way we use technology reflects on us and our culture, and we reduce others to data points at our own peril.

The Pi Podcast #25 – Sway Grantham | | Appropriating Technology | Scoop.it
Alex Enkerlis insight:
With UK elementary and secondary education programs requiring coding skills, teachers have been looking for ways to get up to speed. As an inexpensive computer with easy access to several programming tools, Raspberry Pi is a solution to a specific problem in such a context. But what of Higher Education? There are plenty devices of this kind used in post-secondary teaching, but we only hear about them when the projects end or become very ambitious. It might be helpful to reach out to teachers in any discipline who have been Single Board Computers like the #RasPi.

Is “Microsoft Classroom” (not to be confused with OneNote Classroom) the #O365 answer to #GAfE? Some compatibility with Google Classroom, D2L Brightspace, Instructure Canvas, Moodle…
Details are a bit difficult to come by and it sounds like Microsoft Classroom isn’t available in Canada, yet. But it might be interesting to experiment with this as some teachers do a lot of work with Microsoft products.
