The speed and volume of information have increased exponentially. Experts are predicting that 90% of the entire population will be connected to the internet within 10 years. With the internet of things, the digital and physical worlds will soon be merged. These changes herald exciting possibilities. But they also create uncertainty. Children are using digital technologies and media at increasingly younger ages and for longer periods of time. The digital world is a vast expanse of learning and entertainment. Moreover, there is the digital age gap. So how can we, as parents, educators and leaders, prepare our children for the digital age?

Gallery: How networks help us understand the world As designer Manuel Lima points out in his TED Talk, A visual history of human knowledge, the network has become a powerful way to visualize much of what is going on in the world around us. “Networks really embody notions of decentralization, of interconnectedness, of interdependence,” says Lima. “This way of thinking is critical for us to solve many of the complex problems we are facing nowadays, from decoding the human brain to understanding the vast universe out there.” The Strengths of Nations This image shows the connections between scientific disciplines such as astrophysics, math and biochemistry.

Exploring a new frontier this holiday shopping season: Virtual reality It is a sad truth for technology enthusiasts that it’s almost the end of 2016, and we still don’t have flying cars, a moon colony or fully functional robot butlers. But there is at least one sci-fi technology that is aiming to make a breakthrough into your living room: virtual reality. Companies big and small are betting that holiday shoppers will get the appeal of being able to pop on a headset and immerse their eyes and ears — and sometimes their hands and feet — in another world. Google, Sony, Samsung, Facebook and HTC are among the major manufacturers that have put virtual reality products, mostly for playing games, on the market in the past several months. And retailers such as Walmart and Best Buy are building the excitement by setting up demonstration areas in their stores so consumers can get a good feel for these unfamiliar devices. That could make this holiday season a critical period for VR, which is trying to prove it’s not just a gimmick like some gaming trends before it.

Graphviz | Graphviz - Graph Visualization Software Dysorthographie Les Nouveaux critères de diagnostiques du DSM5 sont sortis! Le manuel de diagnostic et statistique des troubles mentaux (acronyme en anglais: DSM) est la norme de classification des troubles utilisés par les professionnels de la santé mentale. En plus de fournir une description détaillée des critères des pathologies, le DSM est aussi un outil nécessaire pour la collecte de statistiques précises de santé publique. La nouvelle édition communément intitulée DSM-5, est sortie en mai 2013. Faisant l'objet de certaines critiques (il est bien normal qu'un livre qui décrive des critères de pathologies mentales rende fou...), c'est néanmoins une référence pour la plupart des praticiens. Certains seront étonnés que dans ce site sur la dysgraphie et la rééducation de l'écriture, je fasse référence à un ouvrage de psychiatrie. En attendant voici la liste des nouveaux critères diagnostiques pour les troubles d'apprentissage : 1. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Pour aller plus loin :
