The Sweet Learning Computer: Machine Learning by Paul Curzon and Peter W McOwan, Queen Mary University of London How do machines learn? Don't they just blindly follow rules? Affordances - Interaction and Service Design Seminar - Medium Defining and finding affordances in the world An affordance is the relationship between any two objects, substances, or environments. The qualities of each may or may not have mutual affordances (predator-prey relationship) but the meeting or interaction between the two elements afford a possible action, knowledge orinteradction. My short interpretation of affordances are that depending on your vantage point, there is a myriad of possible affordance because relationships are so delicate and interconnected. However, the ineraction or relationshp between each object or entity is where opportunity and interesting opportunities lie. I find Don Norman’s framework for thinking about affordances, in his book The design of everyday things,helpful to tease out both the blatant and hidden affordances.

Vector Scratch Blocks In September 2014 Computing will be a new curriculum subject and I wanted to make some resources that could be used to support Scratch After seeing these hands-on blocks I thought it would be great if anyone could make their own. So I set about creating some vector versions of the standard Scratch blocks that could be scaled to any size required. Good Apps for Personal, Social & Emotional Development : Fundamentally Children Finding apps that help develop softer personal, social and emotional skills can be harder than for other areas like maths and reading. However, there are many apps out there that either target these as their primary focus or as a secondary benefit. For example, a few great apps focus on helping young children understand emotions or take turns whilst many apps help young children to learn to follow instructions and encourage perseverance.

App Inventor Get Started Follow these simple directions to build your first app! Tutorials Step-by-step guides show you how to create even more apps. How to Do a Card Sorting Exercise and Why Bother Card sorting is an invaluable tool in deciding site structure and visual hierarchy. In this post, we explore how to do a card sorting exercise and why it is so worthwhile. There’s something very satisfying about the term Card Sorting. It appears to my inner neat-freak and hints at an outcome that will be both practical and useful, which is exactly what you need if you’re about to start organising (or reorganizing) the content on your website.

The Machine to be Another – BeAnotherLab Empathy is defined in psychology and neuroscience as the ability of one individual to feel another individual’s emotional state while preserving the knowledge about it’s personal origin. Among several phenomena, empathy is related to perspective taking that can lead to prosocial behavior (e.g.: altruism and compassion). These abilities can drive individuals to learn from others experiences and to feel joy by helping another person in need. The social importance of empathy has been raised in fields of knowledge related to psychology, neuroscience as well as in education and conflict resolution. This becomes evidenced in western European cities dealing with the co-existence of groups with different cultural identities, catalyzed by the refugee diasporas. These abilities are fundamental to foster a culture of tolerance, as “without empathy, we can’t get to conflict resolution, altruism, or peace”.

Discerning Decomposition and computational disposition with Archelino: : A dialogue Steven Khan & Sally Rudakoff This article is presented as a research informed dialogue between the two authors. It represents a reconstruction of conversations that occurred over several weeks, in person and via email as we explored the affordances of a wooden puzzle game for scaffolding understanding of the process of decomposition as used in computational thinking (CT) frameworks and computational dispositions in the early years alongside academic readings. Free Online Preschool Math Games Learning about numbers for the first time can be difficult for little ones. With's math games, designed by teaching professionals just for preschoolers, your child will develop number sense easily with interactive activities that bring numbers to life. While older students can work with abstract concepts like equations, preschoolers learn best with concrete representations they can visualize and manipulate. Our preschool math games allow your child to grow their number skills in a way that feels familiar for them, using shape and color recognition to easily identify numbers and how they relate to each other. Start with a simple challenge to build their confidence, such as sorting by color or searching for the right shape. Then try a more advanced activity, such as speed counting up to 20 or completing a number puzzle, where students can stretch their number recognition, understanding of shapes, and fine motor skills.

iPhone App and Game Development Online Course How does the course work? The online course will be a mix of text-based online tutorials, Playground challenges and lecture/speaker videos. Can I access tutorials whenever I want? Teaching London Computing: A RESOURCE HUB from CAS LONDON & CS4FN Explore how the human brain works by creating a computational model of neurones out of students that plays Snap. After explaining how neurones in the brain work, create an artificial version that is programmed to play Red-black Snap. Then test it against other artificial brains. This activity explores how computational modelling (a key part of computational thinking) can be used to help understand biological systems – here neurones.

Top 7 Fictional AI Characters That Are Now A Reality There was a time when characters and technology from literary and artistic works on science fiction found forms only within our wild imaginations. Novels, movies and television shows in the science fiction genre have given us some of the most fascinating robots and AI beings that have enthralled fans of the genre for decades. However, the rapid advancement in science and technology over the last 20-30 years has given the fans an opportunity to witness these fictional beings become reality within their lifetime. 1. Institute of Education - UCL – University College London Professional development is a key component of the ScratchMaths curriculum as it encompasses not only the learning content but also a particular pedagogical approach, which we call the 5Es and is described briefly below. Ideally, all teachers will have the opportunity to participate in the ScratchMaths PD events organised by one of our partners who have been involved in the project for several years and are experienced in providing PD sessions that appropriately prepare teachers to deliver ScratchMaths within their classrooms. In you are interested in attending ScratchMaths PD please get in contact with your nearest ScratchMaths PD provider.
