Growing Up Digital, Wired for Distraction

john rambo

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — On the eve of a pivotal academic year in Vishal Singh’s life, he faces a stark choice on his bedroom desk: book or computer?

By all rights, Vishal, a bright 17-year-old, should already have finished the book, Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle,” his summer reading assignment. But he has managed 43 pages in two months.

He typically favors Facebook, YouTube and making digital videos. That is the case this August afternoon. Bypassing Vonnegut, he clicks over to YouTube, meaning that tomorrow he will enter his senior year of high school hoping to see an improvement in his grades, but without having completed his only summer homework.

On YouTube, “you can get a whole story in six minutes,” he explains. “A book takes so long. I prefer the immediate gratification.”

Students have always faced distractions and time-wasters. But computers and cellphones, and the constant stream of stimuli they

Technology Tools And Apps For Student Engagement

10 Technology Tools To Engage Students In The Classroom

contributed by Sara McGuire, venngage.com

Technology distracts students, right? Keeps them from focusing?

One solution is to ban phones and computers from the classroom. Another solution is to harness their tech-savvy and engage students with online tools that will help them complete assignments while still engaging them electronically. Whether they’re working on a research essay, a presentation, a science project, or a math report, there are ample tools available to make the process more engaging for students.

Think about it–if students are growing up in a world that requires them to be tech-savvy, then shouldn’t tech play a big role in their classroom experience? Here are ten picks for tools to engage students in the classroom.

Luminance HDR

We are pleased to announce Luminance HDR 2.3.1, an improvement release for Luminance HDR.

It’s a long time since version 2.3.0: unfortunately 2012 has been a really busy year for all of us in the development team, so we couldn’t dedicate much time to the project. However, we are now up to speed and we will try to push releases more often, with new features.

This release introduces some work made by Franco on the antighosting mask: he is absolutely looking forward to receive your feedback on that, so that he will improve it even further.
There are also other improvements in the processing engine (a long refactoring that has been my – Davide – company for almost a year, and will continue probably as much as that). Ideally, a new processing engine will allow more flexibility, hence new functionalities and improvement to be release more often. At

finite difference – What programming language should I choose and why?

john rambo

You have some great answers already. I think there is no single answer to your question. What language(s) you choose to learn depends on what you intend to do.

When I was a graduate student I too learned some Matlab, Mathematica, Maple, SAS, Stata, because my university had licenses and because in my area of research that’s what others used, so I could easily take existing programs and modify them to my needs. That was a while back. I have since dabbled in Python, Julia, and some statistics software like R and Stata. So what would I recommend?

It’s a multidimensional decision to make. Here are some criteria based on my limited knowledge (I haven’t tried Ruby, another popular choice):

  • Open source: Forget Matlab and Mathematica. Go for R, Python, Julia, C++ and all that. I avoid proprietary software whenever possible.
  • User base: This depends on what you do. Go
