Si tratta di domande cruciali che costituiscono una delle principali problematiche della ricerca filosofica da sempre, con la novità che ora i dati di cui si parla on sono quelli percepiti dal soggetto umano, ma sono i dati prodotti nell'ecosistema digitale i cosiddetti Big Data. Big Data e Information Overload La crescita dei dati ha prodotto il cosiddetto information overload o sovraccarico informativo, solo negli ultimi due anni c'è stato un aumento del 90% dei dati prodotti. Volume: quantità dei dati prodotti ogni secondo;Varietà: tali dati sono eterogenei, strutturati, destrutturati di differenti formati (testi, video, immagini, disegni, audio, mail, etc.) Alla crescita dei dati corrisponde la necessità per i sistemi (umani, aziendali, sociali, politici, culturali, etc.) di ottenere da questi dati delle informazioni utilizzabili.

Grammar myths #2: please miss, can I start a sentence with a conjunction? For many of us, our English lessons at school were marked by the stern admonition: ‘Never begin a sentence with a conjunction!’. I was taught this ‘rule’ as a grammatical diktat back in the 1970s, and a quick trawl of the Net shows that the same advice is still being handed down to English students on many websites. And yet perfectly respectable writers employ this disputed usage, and have done since Anglo-Saxon times. Many grammar and usage experts have also tried to squash this myth, but it seems to be set in stone. Here’s my own attempt to chip away at the foundations of this grammatical ‘superstition’ (as Henry Fowler terms such mistaken beliefs). Conjunctional clarifications To find out the rationale (if any) for the ban on introductory ands (and buts, and even becauses), let’s go back to basics: what’s a conjunction and what role does it play? There are two main types of conjunction: A coordinating conjunction is one that joins elements of a sentence that are equally important.

Crossword Puzzle Maker You must have an OLD browser. The old crossword maker doesn't allow all of the new features like cool fonts, adding images, shadows, special colors, and much more coming in the furture like saving, and being playable online. You can upgrade your browser to IE 9+ or better yet, get the Google Chrome browser and enjoy all of those great features. Not convinced? 2 reasons crosswords will not generate: 1. 1. Take the following example word list: "home, cat, dog". A slightly different impossible list: "home", "dog", "lizard" - all 3 have letters that they share! When you add a bunch of words, the chance for it being an impossible can increase (depending on many factors). 2.

Il Digital Storytelling in classe: i prodotti Il digital storytelling è una metodologia didattica attiva, vale a dire un approccio didattico che vuole mettere al centro del processo di apprendimento lo studente, mediante l’elaborazione di storie. Dopo aver visto le tipologie più note di digital storytelling (clicca qui per leggere l’articolo), è il momento di elencare i prodotti multimediali che dagli studenti possono essere realizzati. Vediamo i principali: – Pagina Web: tramite siti ad hoc lo studente può pubblicare una storia tramite una pagina web. – Video: attraverso la registrazione di un video, ed eventualmente il suo montaggio, gli alunni possono raccontare storie coinvolgenti anche con effetti e sottofondo musicale. – Slideshow fotografico: questa è una delle modalità più note di digital storytelling. – Audio-Narrazione: talora lo storytelling vuole mettere l’ascoltatore o il lettore nella condizione di evocare da sè il proprio patrimonio di immagini.

Rules for Comma Usage Use a comma to separate the elements in a series (three or more things), including the last two. "He hit the ball, dropped the bat, and ran to first base." You may have learned that the comma before the "and" is unnecessary, which is fine if you're in control of things. However, there are situations in which, if you don't use this comma (especially when the list is complex or lengthy), these last two items in the list will try to glom together (like macaroni and cheese). Using a comma between all the items in a series, including the last two, avoids this problem. This last comma—the one between the word "and" and the preceding word—is often called the serial comma or the Oxford comma. Use a comma + a little conjunction (and, but, for, nor, yet, or, so) to connect two independent clauses, as in "He hit the ball well, but he ran toward third base." One of the most frequent errors in comma usage is the placement of a comma after a coordinating conjunction. Use a comma to avoid confusion.

Il Digital Storytelling come “Diario di Bordo” di una esperienza didattica | Design Didattico Il Digital Storytelling si presta a molte declinazioni didattiche. Tra le più note: le interviste impossibili (ad esempio ad un personaggio della storia), i prologhi alternativi di celebri opere letterarie, i finali alternativi, i dialoghi impossibili (ad esempio tra due matematici, fisici, filosofi, etc.).
