Remixing Melville: Moby Dick Meets the Digital Generation Big Ideas Culture Digital Tools Teaching Strategies Henry Jenkins In a traditional English class, a teacher might assign Herman Melville’s famous novel Moby Dick in small chunks. It’s become a common refrain that traditional education isn’t serving a generation of students whose lives outside of school are completely disconnected from what happens inside. “We want to raise a generation of kids who have a mouse in one hand and a book in the other.” Moby Dick is a notoriously difficult book. Pitts-Wiley asked his students to reinterpret the novel in the context of their own lives. [RELATED READING: How Can Teachers Prepare Kids for a Connected World?] Pitts-Wiley’s work correlates strongly to the research Jenkins has been doing on weaving more varieties of media into the classroom in order to make the learning experience more participatory, creative, multidisciplinary, and therefore meaningful to students. If this sounds a little messy and confusing – it is. Related

If Hemingway wrote JavaScript The following article was written by my good friend and colleague, [Angus Croll](// Angus works on the web core team at twitter, talks at conferences around the world, and runs an amazing [blog](// on javascript. Beyond this, he’s also a huge book nerd, so I thought it would be fun to get him to write about code from that perspective. The New Book “If Hemingway wrote JavaScript” is out in September 2014. I loved literature long before I ever wrote a line of code. What is it about JavaScript that attracts so many literature devotees? The Mother of all Code Reviews Recently I had a dream in which I asked Hemingway and four other literary luminaries to write some JavaScript for me; specifically a function that returned a fibonacci series of a given length. Ernest Hemingway No surprises here. Hemingway didn’t suffer fools gladly so if you ask for a series with less than two numbers he’ll just ignore you. William Shakespeare Andre Breton

Mapping The Future Of Education Technology Add this massive infographic to the recent discussion of futuristic dorms and what education will look like in 2020--and beyond. Designed by Michell Zappa’s Envisioning Technology (which also created that fantastic interactive infographic mapping the future of technology), this chart maps innovations in education technology for the next few decades. Click to enlarge. It illustrates a shift from a classroom-centered approach toward an increasingly virtual set of learning environments. Of course the most eye-popping statistic is the idea that 65% of today’s grade-school children will end up at jobs that haven’t been invented yet. Hence the need for looking forward to try to anticipate how technologies might evolve and how we should expect to incorporate them into our schools.

The Shakespeare Programming Language Karl Hasselström Jon Åslund Document was last rebuilt August 21, 2001 Contents Late at night sometime in Februari, Kalle Hasselström and Jon Åslund (that is us, we, the authors) were sitting with a programming assignment due for demonstration at nine the following morning. It was assignment number four in our Syntax Analysis course and we were pretty tired with it. The last assignment, on the other hand, seemed like much more fun, because you were allowed to do pretty much whatever you wanted as long as it involved lexical and syntactical analysis. A few weeks earlier we had discovered a number of truly fascinating programming languages, such as Java2k1, Sorted! This is the documentation of the language and how we made it.
