Posted on 26. Mar, 2013 by karlkapp . Yesterday, I wrote about t wo types of gamification for learning. And one of the comments was about “when do I use each kind for learning.” Good question, here are a couple of ideas.It is not that they both can’t be used but here is what I think is the better of the two for each instance. When used together, the combination is the most effective for motivational and instructional outcomes. Kapp Notes | This blog discusses issues concerning learning, e-learning and transferring knowledge from retiring baby boomers to incoming gamers. The goal is to share information and knowledge to create a better understanding of learning design.
Consensus (computer science) A fundamental problem in distributed computing is to achieve overall system reliability in the presence of a number of faulty processes. This often requires processes to agree on some data value that is needed during computation. Examples of applications of consensus include whether to commit a transaction to a database, agreeing on the identity of a leader , state machine replication , and atomic broadcasts . [ edit ] Problem description The consensus problem requires agreement among a number of processes for a single data value. Some of the processes may fail or be unreliable in other ways, so consensus protocols must be fault tolerant .

Consensus decision-making is a group decision making process that seeks the consent of all participants. Consensus may be defined professionally as an acceptable resolution, one that can be supported, even if not the "favourite" of each individual. Consensus is defined by Merriam-Webster as, first, general agreement, and second, group solidarity of belief or sentiment. It has its origin in the Latin word cōnsēnsus (agreement), which is from cōnsentiō meaning literally feel together . [ 1 ] It is used to describe both the decision and the process of reaching a decision.

Sometimes the only way to express a constellation of related ideas is by launching inDesign and losing an afternoon to the creation of a PDF that only I will ultimately find useful. Fridays in grad school I had Directing Practicum class. Four hours (9 AM to 1 PM) with all the other directing students. All on their way to discovering, with varying levels of delusion, whether they were cut out for directing in the American theatre (I, it turns out, was not). » Charts and Graphs from My Brain Brendan Hughes

[1112.6209] Building high-level features using large scale unsupervised learning
At the 2011 Google I/O developer's conference, Google announced a new initiative called " cloud robotics " in conjunction with robot manufacturer Willow Garage. Google has developed an open source (free) operating system for robots, with the unsurprising name "ROS" -- or Robot Operating System. In other words, Google is trying to create the MS-DOS (or MS Windows) of robotics. With ROS, software developers will be able to write code in the Java programming language and control robots in a standardized way -- much in the same way that programmers writing applications for Windows or the Mac can access and control computer hardware. Google's approach also offers compatibility with Android. Robots will be able to take advantage of the "cloud-based" (in other words, online) features used in Android phones, as well as new cloud-based capabilities specifically for robots.

Planet Under Pressure: UN Overhaul Required To Govern Planet's Life Support System Say Experts As policy-makers gather in Durban, South Africa, for the 17th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Planet Under Pressure consortium today released the first five of nine policy briefs on key issues. The briefs deal with biodiversity and ecosystem services, food and water security, interconnected risks and solutions, and a topic common to all: reforming environmental governance from the local to the global level. Prof. Frank Biermann of VU University Amsterdam in The Netherlands, director of the Earth System Governance Project of the International Human Dimensions Programme (IHDP) wrote the policy brief on institutional reform with 29 fellow social scientists and governance experts around the world. Says Dr. Biermann: "Societies must change course to steer away from critical tipping points that lead to rapid and irreversible change.

This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place ! Each of the images has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for iPad, Google, Android, and Web 2.0 applications to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy. The use of the triangle shape for Bloomin' apps projects was not used to help clear up the misunderstanding that the levels are hierarchical and the top levels only make up a tiny portion of the cognitive processes. I have created a page to allow you to share your favorite Web 2.0, iOS, or Android app with others. New image for Bloom's?
