Mental Mapping: Video Game Maps Drawn From Memory Games are interaction with rules. They mimic the scientific method - hypothesis tested to overcome obstacles and achieve goal while operating inside prescribed system of boundaries. Video games provide failure based learning - brief, surmountable, exciting. While failure in school is depressing, in a video game, it's aspirational. Super Mario World world map by fliptaco

Teaching Kids to Code Every era demands--and rewards--different skills. In different times and different places, we have taught our children to grow vegetables, build a house, forge a sword or blow a delicate glass, bake bread, create a soufflé, write a story or shoot hoops. Now we are teaching them to code. We are teaching them to code, however, not so much as an end in itself but because our world has morphed: so many of the things we once did with elements such as fire and iron, or tools such as pencil and paper, are now wrought in code. We are teaching coding to help our kids craft their future.

A new development era (essay) I posted a G+ yesterday where I was basically saying: all clients apps will be HTML5/JS at some point on mobile/tablets/desktop, and what we call "web applications" on server side, are just becoming a bunch of specialized web services, or proxies that route calls to backends. The post had a lot of feedback and that was pretty cool to have the experience of many developers. Most of them agreed with the general idea, and I thought it would be interesting to blog it here - refined with all the feedback. When I think about my first years of developement, we were doing heavy clients using tools like Borland Delphi and the server was just the SQL Database.

Scratch Teaches Kids To Program The Fun Way If you ask some of the world’s leading tech figures when they learned the bulk of their computing and programming experience, they’d probably point back to their teenage years, at the latest. Children today are ever more tech savvy, surrounded by an assortment of screens, tiny and large. The Scratch program, developed at Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT), is dedicated to this purpose exactly: to teach young students programming concepts and develop skills in multimedia communication. Related Stories: Scratch was created as a free programming environment that makes it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music and art. It is also a means for children to express themselves in an open platform that allows them to immediately share their works with others.

History of Stanford Law School Stanford began offering a curriculum in legal studies in 1893, when the university engaged its first two law professors. One was Benjamin Harrison, former President of the United States, who delivered a landmark series of lectures on the Constitution. The other was Nathan Abbott, who served as head of the nascent law program. Abbott assembled a small faculty to which he imparted a standard of rigor and excellence that endures to this day. For its first decade, the law department was composed of mostly undergraduate law majors.

3-D It Yourself, Thanks to New Library Site (Courtesy NYPL Labs)Samuel Dixon crossing Niagara. Four years ago, a San Francisco artist and writer named Joshua Heineman began making animated versions of digitized vintage stereographs from the New York Public Library’s collection and posting them on his blog. The project quickly went viral, attracting as many as 70,000 visitors a day to its mesmerizing 3-D animations of old-school cyclists zipping around on penny-farthings and heavy-skirted matrons reclining over a picnic. Now the library itself has done Mr. Heineman’s populist raid on the archives one better and created its own Stereogranimator, a graphic tool that allows users to try their hand at bringing the more than 40,000 digitized stereographs from its collection back to flickering life. “It’s a nice example of the cool things that can happen when you put library collections online in free, repurposable forms,” Ben Vershbow, the manager of NYPL Labs, the unit responsible for the project, said in a telephone interview.

MaKey MaKey PicoBoard Scratch Trumpet I have been programming an electronic trumpet in Scratch. I am using a MaKey MaKey and a PicoBoardfor the hardware side of this project. Here is the Scratch code I devised. You can download the project from my Scratch projects page. belgrade new media festival, 16-17 March 2012 Core aim of “RESONATE” is to create a platform for education, knowledge exchange and information. Education is the base of any society, we learn to teach. Resonate believes that transferable knowledge is at the heart of the festival, able to inspire and motivate, involve new generations into contemporary trends without the delay that was characteristic for this geographic region in the previous decades. Students will have a chance to relate practical application of technology with a sound theoretical base and thus complete a full picture about technological processes and creative strategies which shape the potentials of the multimedial artistic expression. Resonate: 1. Relating practical application of technology with a sound theoretical base. 2.
