    What is blockchain? Understanding the technology and the revolution (free PDF)
    See on Scoop.it - Data Science and Computational Thinking [inc Big Data and Internet of Things]

    The blockchain is bringing significant opportunities to the enterprise, from financial services to IP protection to job documentation. This ebook explains what the blockchain is, how it works, and the revolutionary impact it’s likely to have on business.

    From the ebook:

    The blockchain is powerful technology that enables Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and other virtual currencies to be open, anonymous, and secure.

    The code also empowers countless innovations beyond cryptocurrency. The blockchain is a database of details about every Bitcoin transaction. Often referred to as a “public ledger,” the log contains metadata about when and how each transaction occurred. The ledger is publicly accessible through APIs and torrent sites. To prevent tampering with current and past transactions, the database is cryptographically secured. Encryption allows developers to trust the transaction history and build applications from and around transaction information.

    Why it matters
    Virtual currencies offer an alternative to government-issued money. These currencies are exchanged like cash for goods and services. They can also be converted easily by a number of services for traditional currency like dollars, pounds, and euros. Because transaction information is obfuscated, cryptocurrency enables legal, extralegal, and illegal behavior. Using Bitcoin, it’s easy to buy pizza, train tickets, stolen data, drugs, and weapons.

    The blockchain is, in theory, future-proof and can be used by private companies and individuals to build private financial networks. This means that a large enterprise could build a financial system internally for use by employees or external vendors. Though most countries require tax to be collected from income, taxing company-to-company virtual currency transactions is tricky.

    The blockchain can also be used as an identity system. Onename and Keybase use the blockchain to generate verifiable identification, like a national ID or driver’s license.

    Textbooks optional: What unbundling and BYOD mean for learning technology
    See on Scoop.it - Learning Futures

    The days of overhead projectors and chalkboards are behind us. Today’s educators are looking to Chromebooks, smartphones and maker spaces to enhance their teaching. Other tools going the way of the overhead projector? The traditional textbook and workbook combination, complete with a #2 pencil. As digital natives, today’s students have grown up with technology integrated into every aspect of their lives, and education is no exception.

    When it comes to middle schools and high schools, the average classroom looks more like a typical startup office than the traditional classroom of the past. As part of the macro trend of unbundling education, teachers are delivering a modern, customized curriculum by curating content in the form of videos, online text, and apps–moving beyond the physical textbooks.

    In response, students are also choosing the devices they want to use for learning, and why shouldn’t they? Similar to the age-old Apple vs. Android debate, students tend to have personal preferences about the devices they use for learning.

    Cambridge University could allow laptops and iPads for exams 
    See on Scoop.it - Digital Learning - beyond eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education

    Academics say that the move, which would bring an end to more than 800 years of tradition, has come about because students rely too heavily on laptops in lectures, and are losing the ability to write by hand.

    Cambridge University has now launched a consultation on the topic as part of its “digital education strategy”, having already piloted an exam typing scheme in the History and Classics faculties earlier this year.

    In an online survey, students are asked whether they would like the option to type exams, and whether this would have a “significant positive impact” on their “well-being”.

    Adding a letter to that restrictive STEM acronym — A for Arts — opens new doors to learning.

    When arts and creativity are embraced as an integral part of the STEM world, it’s a win-win for students, professionals and companies alike. “Today’s STEM professions are demanding more curious, multitalented people than ever before,” says Arens. “I would not discount an art student’s interest in science any less than I would an engineer. In the end, the world’s best solutions are going to come from teams of people that are open to thinking differently.”

    Just consider one of our most famous and accomplished scientists in history: Albert Einstein, also a dedicated and talented musician, who began playing the violin at age five. “Einstein is a perfect example of why we need art and creativity in education,” says Fox. “He came into physics from a different perspective with different questions and was able to come up with solutions and thought experiments that conventionally trained physicists were unable to conceive because they were ‘stuck’ in the old world of thought.”

    Pedagogies of Dissent

    See on Scoop.it - Active learning in Higher Education

    Overview: This post combines two blog posts on engaged pedagogy originally published on hastac.org in June 2015 and October 2017.

    The first post offers classic rationales for what is called “active learning” or  engaged, student-centered, or radical pedagogy. It then offers several specific methods, with details for how to make these work in your classroom, meetings, or social organizing. Some of these tactics go back to the “Freedom Schools,” some to Maria Montessori. It ends with a bibliography of useful theoretical and practical books and articles on these methods.

    The second post answers the question posed to me by a friend: “But how do I teach a difficult text, such as Heidegger, using activist pedagogy?” The good news is that Heidegger, in What Is Called Thinking?, answered this question, falling down on the side of engaged pedagogy, what he called “letting-learn.” 

    At the end, is a  bibliography of useful theoretical and practical books and articles on these methods.

    5 ways educational games improve learning, according to teachers

    When teachers used digital educational games in the classroom, students raised test scores by more than half a letter grade in only three weeks, according to a study from researchers at Vanderbilt University and partners at Legends of Learning, a research-driven educational game platform.

    The new research, published by the Journal of the Learning Sciences, demonstrates the benefits of game-based learning for students when compared to students who had no access to such games.

    “Substantial Integration of Typical Educational Games into Extended Curricula” involved more than 1,000 students of 13 teachers in 10 diverse urban, suburban and rural schools in seven states.

    The educators integrated a standards-aligned set of 55 typical educational games into their curricula. Each teacher taught at least one class with the games and one class without.

    The research found students in the classes with the games outperformed their peers on essay and multiple choice questions.

The device had to operate the magnet inside a coil that I had in my shirt. Greeting, R. ================= Hmm, does this match the video ?

    The Most Terrifying Video You'll Ever See
    A new way to think about the climate change debate, with over 13 million total views on various postings. Intrigued? Check out the related material: 1) “HOW IT ALL ENDS”: An exhaustively detailed follow-up series addressing every criticism I could find to “The Most Terrifying Video You’ll Ever See”. Playlist is at http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=92EE5DBE2987982F 2) “WHAT’S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN?”: An even more exhaustively developed book giving instruction on how to come up with an answer based on your own values and experience. It doesn’t tell you *what* to think about climate change. It tells you *how* to think about climate change. Available on Amazon. Trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7e10ZNpogv4 3) “DO YOU DARE THE DRAGON?” A 3-minute animation of the precautionary principle applied to climate change. Way simpler than it sounds. Perfectly bite-sized for forwarding to friends on social media! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdbeg7mS-CU -----------More details on the above:------------ 1) “HOW IT ALL ENDS”: I spent months combing through literally tens of thousands of critical comments to find every single objection, criticism, "Yeah but," and "You missed a spot" that I could to “The Most Terrifying Video You’ll Ever See.” A bruisingly thorough 7-hour video project, anchored by the video “How It All Ends,” which incorporates the arguments from this video, while addressing a logical hole big enough to drive a truck through that this video missed. Playlist is at http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=92EE5DBE2987982F 2) “WHAT’S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN? A RATIONAL RESPONSE TO THE CLIMATE CHANGE DEBATE,” book by Greg Craven (me). A book on climate change, unique in the genre. It’s not really about climate change--it’s really about how you go about making a decision in a confusing situation (here, the debate about climate change). Available on Amazon. Praise for the book: "This book trumps most of our accounts of the global warming crisis." --author Bill McKibben "Al Gore should share his Nobel peace prize." -The "New Scientist" "...superbly crafted...A must read." -Gen. Anthony Zinni, US CENTCOM Commander (Ret.) "This is a tremendous book and well worth anyone's time to read.... You're in for a treat—Craven is funny as well as exceptionally clear, and wise." --Kim Stanley Robinson, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Mars Trilogy and Science in the Capital "This is a terrifically thoughtful book.... Cravens book shines an illuminating floodlight on how we think about global warming." --Ross Gelbspan, author, "The Heat Is On" and "Boiling Point" 3) “DO YOU DARE THE DRAGON?” A collaboration with Rupert Read of the University of East Anglia. A fun, succinct little animation on how to make a decision about what (if anything) to do about climate change if you’re not sure whether it’s going to happen or not. Designed to help break the logjam in the popular debate about climate change. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdbeg7mS-CU

    Reg Whiteman - Fat Cat Tribute
    Reg Whiteman - the life and soul behind children's favourite Fat Cat for several decades - died in Perth on Thursday July 28, 2011, aged 82. He had been in poor health for some time. Early in his career Reg was a dancer and inaugural member of the WA Ballet Company, along with Kevan Johnston. Then he was the stage manager at His Majesty's Theatre and took pride in dressing many of stars, such as Rudolf Nureyev and Barry Humphries, who was performing as Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson. Reg performed on the TVW Channel 7 opening night variety show called Spotlight on Friday October 16th, 1959, as part of the dancing team called Guy and Dolls. This act consisted of Dorothy and Bert Shaw and Judy Schonell with Reg Whiteman. Reg was also part of a Spanish theme dance group on the opening night of ABW Channel 2 on Saturday 7th May, 1960. When Seven brought Humphrey B. Bear to Perth, it was Reg who animated him for a series of local children's shows presented by Carolyn Noble. When Seven became involved in Disney on Parade and a number of other large scale arena and tent productions, it was Reg who stepped into the breach to animate a variety of popular Disney characters. Percy Penguin was the popular TVW children's mascot during the last of the black and white TV era. It was then decided to introduce a new character full of colour and Fat Cat came into being. Though management and production staff came up with the notion, it was Judith Byrne who came up with the concept of what Fat Cat would look like. Judith is the wife of former TVW sales manager and managing director Greg Byrne. In our accompanying video, Sandy Baker describes the events which led up to the launch of Fat Cat on Perth TV screens. At his audition for the role, Reg explained that when he put on the suit, he was unable to see. He wished to show them his best dance moves, but they had positioned him in a studio set full of obstacles, a fence, posts, etc. He said that in the process, he collided with everything, tripping and falling over, which everyone seemed to find most amusing, so he got the job. Keith Geary spent many years as a producer and presenter of children's TV programs at Seven. Keith explained to Pam Casellas that Reg was very dedicated to his job. He elaborates on this subject in the video, saying that Reg did not shy away from a challenge, whether it be skiing, hot-air ballooning or paragliding in the Fat Cat costume. Parents relied on Fat Cat to get their children to bed when he wished them goodnight at 7.30pm on Seven.

    Thief Behind the Mask
    CR Avery takes a poetic look at the masterminds of climate crimes; five minutes that could change everything. With riveting spoken word and striking images, CR Avery connects the dots between pipelines, oil tankers and climate change. He is unsparing in speaking truth to power about the companies leading us down the path toward climate catastrophe and the movement building against them. Enbridge and Enron child Kinder Morgan propose to build pipelines across British Columbia from the tar sands of northern Alberta, and ship the world's dirtiest oil to Asia and the US, putting the west coast of North America at risk of oil spills. These pipelines would drive expansion of the tar sands and spike the impacts of global warming everywhere. Produced by Sierra Club BC and filmed by Ethan Miller (http://www.ethanmillerproductions.com), the video inspires us to think courageously about the future we want, for Canada's west coast and the planet.

    The Council of Elders stand in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street
    Elders from Across the Nation Declare Solidarity with the Occupy Movement Veterans of America's 20th Century civil rights movement will enter the 21st Century Occupy Wall Street movement in New York, Oakland, San Francisco and Los Angeles on Sunday, November 20. Known as the "Council of Elders," they will step inside the nationwide encampments to symbolically share the torch of hope and justice and engage the Occupiers in dialogue about defining movements of the past. "We want to contribute to this intergenerational movement," says Dr. Vincent Harding, activist and writer in the civil rights movement. "We are thankful for the efforts of Occupy Wall Street to unite the 99% and bring the many gifts and great energy of millions into effective action to transform our nation." The Council of Elders is an independent group of leaders from the farm workers, sanctuary and human rights movements that shook the nation's conscience with public protests over the past 50 years. "We see Occupy Wall Street as a continuation, a deepening and expansion of the determination of the diverse peoples of our nation to transform our country into a more democratic, equitable, just, and compassionate society," excerpt from the statement of solidarity by the Council of Elders to be read at each of the Occupy encampments. By bringing their voices to the Occupy Wall Street movement, the elders are addressing a litany of social grievances, including poverty, mass incarceration, and what they call a culture of war and violence. Dolores Huerta, activist with Cesar Chavez and the farm-workers movement, believes today's conditions create bitter divisions among peoples across the United States and throughout the world. "We applaud the miraculous extent to which the Occupy initiative around the nation has been non-violent and democratic, especially in light of the weight of the systematic violence under which the great majority of people are forced to live," says Rev. James Lawson, leading theoretician, tactician and theologian of the civil rights movement. The economic crisis which sparked the Occupy Wall Street movement also motivated the veteran protesters. They cite soaring unemployment rates, home foreclosures, and inadequate health care as issues that require public outcries. The Council of Elders promotes compassion and non-violent action as the highest values to reverse trends that put profits ahead of people in its quest to contribute to the much-needed movement for a more just society and a more peaceful world. The council members are urging elders from around the nation to join the Occupy Wall Street movement. In New York City on November 20th, members of the Elder Council will spend time with those encamped at Zuccoti Park, beginning at 2:30 PM. They will lead a worship service in front of the "red structure" within Zuccotti Park at 3:30 pm. Elders will then host a dialogue with Occupy Wall Street demonstrators and other interested individuals at 5pm, at 74 Trinity Place. Both events are open to the public.

Now he explores stats in a way he has never done before - using augmented reality animation. In this spectacular section of 'The Joy of Stats' he tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers - in just four minutes. Plotting life expectancy against income for every country since 1810, Hans shows how the world we live in is radically different from the world most of us imagine.

    Stephen Fry Kinetic Typography - Language
    UPDATE 24/05/2011:Thankyou to @hedgehoglet for the Russian Subtitles UPDATE 11/10/2010: Thanks to Stephen Fry for mentioning this video on his twitter account, rather exciting! Follow me at @RogersCreations on twitter Using the wonderful words of acclaimed writer, actor and allround know it all (I mean that in the best of ways) Stephen Fry I have created this kinetic typography animation. If you like what you hear you can download the rest of the audio file from Mr. Fry's website. stephenfry.com and then go to the audio and video section at the top of the page and look for the file entitled language. You can also find the file on iTunes by searching the name 'Stephen Fry's Podgrams'. I loved this particular essay on language and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make my first kinetic typography video. I hope you like it and even if you dont I would like to heard what you think in the comments section. Also I know that at points the audio does not match the text so you do not have to write that. It is because I copied the transcript off of Stephen's website and it was not 100% exactly what he said and i did not notice until I was well underway. However these cases are few and far between. Just incase you were wondering the programs I used to make this were all by Adobe. Mostly After Effects but also Flash and Illustrator. Flash for the changing background colour transitions and illustrator for putting the words in to the shape of 'language' before loading it into After Effects to animate. Enjoy

    Tim Minchin - White Wine In The Sun (Christmas Song)
    'White Wine In The Sun', also known as 'Christmas Song'. I put this up since a lot of people were looking for it. LYRICS: I'm looking forward to Christmas It's sentimental I know, but I just really like it I'm, I'm hardly religious I'd rather break bread with Dawkins than Desmond Tutu to be honest And yes I have all of the usual objections to consumerism The commercialisation of an ancient religion And the western-isation of a dead Palestinian Press-ganged into selling PlayStations and beer But I still really like it. I, I really like Christmas Though I'm not expecting a visit from Jesus I'll be seeing my dad My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum They'll be drinking white wine in the sun I'll be seeing my dad My sisters and brother, my gran and my mum We'll be drinking white wine in the sun. I don't go for ancient wisdom I don't believe just 'cause ideas are tenacious it means that they're worthy I get freaked out by churches Some of the hymns that they sing have nice chords But the lyrics are dodgy And yes I have all of the usual objections to the mis-education of children forced into a cult institution And taughted to externalise blame And to feel ashamed And to judge things as plain right and wrong But I quite like the songs. I'm not expecting big presents The old combination of socks, jocks and chocolate is just fine by me. 'Cause I'll be seeing my dad My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum They'll be drinking white wine in the sun I'll be seeing my dad My sisters and brothers, my gran and my mum They'll be drinking white wine in the sun. And you my baby girl My jetlagged infant daughter You'll be handed round the room Like a puppy at a primary school And you're too young to know But you will learn yourself one day That wherever you are and whatever you face These are the people who'll make you feel safe in this world My sweet blue-eyed girl And if my baby girl When you're twenty-one or thirty-one And Christmas comes around And you find yourself nine thousand miles from home You'll know whatever comes Your brother and sister, and me and your mum Will be waiting for you in the sun Girl, when Christmas comes Your brothers and sisters, your aunts and your uncles Your grandparents, cousins, and me and your mum Will be drinking white wine in the sun We'll be waiting for you in the sun Baby, whenever you come We'll be drinking white wine in the sun Waiting. I, I really like Christmas It's sentimental I know.

    The Twitter Experiment - Twitter in the Classroom
    Dr. Rankin, professor of History at UT Dallas, wanted to know how to reach more students and involve more people in class discussions both in and out of the classroom. She had heard of Twitter... She collaborated with a graduate student, Kim Smith, from the Emerging Media and Communications (EMAC) and reached out to EMAC faculty for advice. As a Graduate student in EMAC I assisted her in The Twitter Experiment and documented the project to share with others. The feedback is varied, but the lesson for me, as a student, was the importance of a professor's attitude and willingness to try new technologies in the classroom, especially a more traditional class such as History. It was a great pleasure to assist Dr. Rankin with this. I documented the experiment and used it in my digital video class with Professor Dean Terry, @therefore, and assisted Dr. Rankin in the experiment as a part of my collaboration and content creation course with Dan Langendor, @dlangendorf. It was a real pleasure to work with Dr. Rankin - a forward-thinking professor open to the intelligent use of new media.

    No Future Left Behind
    This film was created as the Keynote for Net Generation Education Project: http://tiny.cc/glLA7 When kids at the Suffern Middle School were asked to talk about education and their future, they gave Peggy Sheehy, the SMS media specialist, an earful. Listen and learn the bits of wisdom that can be gleaned from the students, if we only dare to ask them. Students from The Elisabeth Morrow School Tech Club contributed machinima created in Quest Atlantis. Marianne Malmstrom (aka Knowclue) worked remotely with the students of Suffern to create machinima of their avatars on Teen Second Life. Original music, "Harpsicord" was created by a former Suffern Middle School student, Larry Bordowitz. All editing was done by educators Peggy Sheehy, Suffern Middle School and Marianne Malmstrom, The Elisabeth Morrow School. *** Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike Noncommercial Nonderivative 3.0 ***

    The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler's high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros' Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century. Anyone is free to use this video for educational purposes.

    Head Tracking for Desktop VR Displays using the WiiRemote
    Using the infrared camera in the Wii remote and a head mounted sensor bar (two IR LEDs), you can accurately track the location of your head and render view dependent images on the screen. This effectively transforms your display into a portal to a virtual environment. The display properly reacts to head and body movement as if it were a real window creating a realistic illusion of depth and space. By Johnny Chung Lee, Carnegie Mellon University.
