MaKey MaKey Advanced Guide Introduction Previously on Getting Started with the MaKey MaKey we discussed how to make your standard banana space bar. But what if you want to make a full-on banana piano, and the default MaKey MaKey key presses don’t fit your needs? Measuring the Universe : Roman Ondák Viewers play a vital role in the creation of Measuring the Universe (2007), by Slovakian artist Roman Ondák (b. 1966). Over the course of the exhibition, attendants mark Museum visitors' heights, first names, and date of the measurement on the gallery walls. Beginning as an empty white space, over time the gallery gradually accumulates the traces of thousands of people. The inclusion of viewers in the process of art making has a long tradition in the history of performance-based art. By inviting people to actively participate, artists attempt to overcome traditional divisions between art objects and spectators, and production and reception.
Socrative Educator Review What's It Like? Socrative is a simple, dynamic online student response system that can help teachers spark conversation and learning through user-created polls and quizzes. With this free, cloud-based software, teachers direct students to a Web address, where they log in their answers. Via single-response polling, students' answers register immediately on the teacher’s computer as the students submit their responses on most any device. Teachers can display the class's responses to multiple-choice, true/false, or short-answer questions. In addition to polling students on a single question, teachers can also create longer quizzes, which the software grades.
3. Programming unplugged: learning programming without computers An inspiring unplugged session on teaching computing for teachers. Overview It’s easy to assume that programming is something you have to learn at a computer but if you want your students to deeply understand programming concepts, rather than blindly getting programs to work then unplugged techniques can work really well to get students started. We will see how to program a robot face that is made of students, look at a simple way to give a deep understanding of how variables work by making them physical, and see how to compile programs onto your class instead of onto a computer. Boids (Flocks, Herds, and Schools: a Distributed Behavioral Model) In 1986 I made a computer model of coordinated animal motion such as bird flocks and fish schools. It was based on three dimensional computational geometry of the sort normally used in computer animation or computer aided design. I called the generic simulated flocking creatures boids. The basic flocking model consists of three simple steering behaviors which describe how an individual boid maneuvers based on the positions and velocities its nearby flockmates: Each boid has direct access to the whole scene's geometric description, but flocking requires that it reacts only to flockmates within a certain small neighborhood around itself. The neighborhood is characterized by a distance (measured from the center of the boid) and an angle, measured from the boid's direction of flight.
Carrot Piano (A MaKey MaKey Project) : Reprogramming the MaKey MaKey This is a fairly long process but when you get used to it, it is extremely easy. Before you can program the MaKey MaKey using Arduino, you need to download the Arduino environment from here- . Download the latest version that suits your operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux). The download comes in the form of a zip file, which needs to be unzipped to a directory you'll remember. From there you can access the Arduino application by double-clicking the Arduino application. Neuroscape lab The glass brain is a Unity3D brain visualization that displays source activity and connectivity, inferred in real-time from high-density EEG using methods implemented in SIFT and BCILAB. This is an anatomically-realistic 3D brain visualization depicting real-time source-localized activity (power and “effective” connectivity) from EEG (electroencephalographic) signals. Each color represents source power and connectivity in a different frequency band (theta, alpha, beta, gamma) and the golden lines are white matter anatomical fiber tracts. Estimated information transfer between brain regions is visualized as pulses of light flowing along the fiber tracts connecting the regions.
