How I reverse-engineered Google Docs to play back any document's keystrokes « James Somers (jsomers.net) If you’ve ever typed anything into a Google Doc, you can now play it back as if it were a movie — like traveling through time to look over your own shoulder as you write. This is possible because every document written in Google Docs since about May 2010 has a revision history that tracks every change, by every user, with timestamps accurate to the microsecond; these histories are available to anyone with “Edit” permissions; and I have written a piece of software that can find, decode, and rebuild the history for any given document. See that little gizmo above? It’s like a video player, but made especially for writing. This one’s from an Atlantic article I began work on nearly four years ago, on the day after Christmas in 2010. The article was about the first (and only) time I got to fly a small airplane.

Group work: Using cooperative learning groups effectively Many instructors from disciplines across the university use group work to enhance their students’ learning. Whether the goal is to increase student understanding of content, to build particular transferable skills, or some combination of the two, instructors often turn to small group work to capitalize on the benefits of peer-to-peer instruction. This type of group work is formally termed cooperative learning, and is defined as the instructional use of small groups to promote students working together to maximize their own and each other’s learning (Johnson, et al., 2008).

Building Responsive Layouts presentation at Responsive Web Design Summit Today I spoke at the online conference Responsive Web Design Summit 2012 on Building Responsive Layouts. I talked about two of the core components of responsive web design: fluid/liquid layouts and media queries. Much of the talk was focused on fluid layout techniques and tips: how to build a basic two- or three-column all-fluid layout, how to create fluid grids with fixed-width margin and padding, how to create a hybrid fixed-fluid layout, and how to calculate nested width, margin, and padding values.

TechKidsAcademy presents Ateliers créatifs numériques pour les 7-17 ans Creative computing workshops for kids & teens — KissKissBankBank I remember a time when we already talked about digital school, the arrival of TO7 and MO5 in classrooms, BASIC lessons given by my dad on our TRS-80, pretty boring computing books in English and Super Nova games... in short, another age! Since then, the progress in technology, Internet and new technologies invaded our households, which led to new usages and the birth of a new generation, ultra connected, communicative, collaborative and creative: the "digital natives". Today, mom of a 12 year-old boy, I can only note that, although computers, tablets, smartphones are part of their everyday life, those young technophiles often remain very passive in front of new technologies, even though their mastering and coding will be essential for their future. Tech Kids Academy is designed to get our kids be more active in front of computers, be creative and innovative with new technologies and pass on to them the desire to learn in a fun way, enabling them to live by their passion!
