1732: Earth Temperature Timeline - explain xkcd - 1 views

  •  
    "This comic is a timeline on how the temperature has changed from 20,000 BCE (Before Common Era) to the present day (2016), with three predictions for the rest of the 21st century depending on what actions are taken (or not taken) to stop CO₂ emission. This comic is a direct, but much more thorough, follow up on the previous global warming comic: 1379: 4.5 Degrees. By having readers scroll through millennia of slow-paced natural changes, Randall uses the comic to confront the the rapid temperature rise in the recent years. Over the past 100 years, human action has produced a large amount of CO₂ emissions, which have caused a rise in average global temperature through the greenhouse effect. This is called global warming and is part of a climate change, a subject that has become a recurrent subject on xkcd. There are still many people who claim that this is not happening, or at least that it is not caused by any human actions, called climate change deniers. One argument of theirs is that global warming is happening for natural causes, summarized with the phrase "temperature has changed before". "

    Proyecto internacional DESIGN FOR CHANGE, inspirado por el DESIGN THINKING aplicado al mundo escolar para promover cambios en la sociedad. Design for Change hace su aparición en España en 2011, con la ilusión de contribuir a transformar la realidad educativa de nuestro país. Innovación, emprendimiento social, valores e inteligencias múltiples. Con todos estos ingredientes en un mismo proyecto, sólo faltaba ponernos manos a la obra. Después de un período de experimentación, en septiembre de 2013 decidimos a embarcarnos definitivamente en la aventura creando la asociación Design for Change España (DFC España).En enero de 2016, Fundación Telefónica se suma al espíritu I CAN a través de un convenio de colaboración para realizar de forma conjunta actividades en innovación educativa. ¿TE ATREVES A SER UN SUPERHÉROE I CAN? Una manera de trabajar emocionante, sorprendente y llena de magia e incertidumbre, en la que la intuición se revela como una capacidad de enorme valor. SIENTE, IMAGINA, ACTÚA, EVOLÚA y COMPARTE: cinco fases y un proyecto donde cambian el mundo. Los niños trabajan en equipo siguiendo este sencillo proceso basado en Design Thinking o pensamiento de diseño. Un método de resolución de retos profundamente humano cuyos pilares fundamentales son la creatividad, el pensamiento lógico, la colaboración, la empatía y el aprendizaje del error. Los adultos facilitan el proceso, los niños lo protagonizan y lo lideran.

The Medium is the Message, McLuhan en 2' - 0 views

  •  
    "Is the form that you receive a message as significant as the message itself? Marshall McLuhan argued that throughout history what has been communicated has been less important than the particular medium through which people communicate. The technology that transfers the message changes us and changes society, the individual, the family, work, leisure and more. Narrated by Gillian Anderson. Scripted by Nigel Warburton. From the BBC Radio 4 series about life's big questions - A History of Ideas. This project is from the BBC in partnership with The Open University, the animations were created by Cognitive."

Why Climate Change Isn't Our Biggest Environmental Problem, and Why Technology Won't Save Us - Resilience - 2 views

  •  
    "Our core ecological problem is not climate change. It is overshoot, of which global warming is a symptom. Overshoot is a systemic issue. Over the past century-and-a-half, enormous amounts of cheap energy from fossil fuels enabled the rapid growth of resource extraction, manufacturing, and consumption; and these in turn led to population increase, pollution, and loss of natural habitat and hence biodiversity. The human system expanded dramatically, overshooting Earth's long-term carrying capacity for humans while upsetting the ecological systems we depend on for our survival. Until we understand and address this systemic imbalance, symptomatic treatment (doing what we can to reverse pollution dilemmas like climate change, trying to save threatened species, and hoping to feed a burgeoning population with genetically modified crops) will constitute an endlessly frustrating round of stopgap measures that are ultimately destined to fail."

Conflict-Free And Easy To Repair, The Fairphone Is The World's Most Ethical Phone | Co.Exist | ideas + impact - 0 views

  •  
    "The Fairphone is a modular handset designed with repairability and ethical sourcing of its materials as headline features. It sold 60,000 units. Amazingly, for what sounds like a nerd-phone, almost half of those buyers had never owned a smartphone before. Now the Fairphone 2 is launching, and with a totally-new, in-house design. The new phone is even easier to repair, and because it was wholly designed by the FairPhone team, its supply chain is even more responsible than ever. The Fairphone is thicker than the latest iPhone or Samsung flagship, but that's the point. Instead of packing everything into a tiny case and keeping it there with glue, the Fairphone is designed to be taken apart. The lightweight magnesium frame supports modules that can be easily replaced by the user. "We have designed it with an aim to last three to five years, looking at making it robust and modular-for repairability," says Fairphone's chief communications officer, Tessa Wernink. "Obviously how long it lasts depends quite heavily on the user, so what we as a company are doing is offering an ecosystem around the phone that supports long-lasting use, first-hand or second-hand." Inside the case (itself one of several options) you'll find the core unit, containing all the chips and radios; a replaceable battery pack; a display that can be snapped off and replaced without any tools (not even a screwdriver); a receiver unit, which contains the front camera, sensors; the headset connector and microphones; a speaker/vibrator unit; and a camera module. These modules are designed to balance manufacturing complexity with repairability. For instance, the display comes as a standalone unit, but less-vulnerable components are bundled into one module. The camera, which people are most likely to upgrade as better versions become available, is also housed in its own module. That way you don't need to toss out your whole phone just to get a better camera. "In fact, the motto from the maker mo

Raw, de los datos a las visualizaciones en simples pasos - 0 views

  •  
    Muy interesante herramienta para pasar tablas de datos a visualizaciones gráficas, en vectores y personalizables... "RAW works with tabular data (i.e. information which is possible to record or track in a spreadsheet). There are many ways you can upload your data in RAW: Dropping a plain text file containing delimiter-separated values such as .csv or .tsv. File extension does not matter, as long as you use one of these delimters: comma, semicolon, tab or colon. Copying and pasting your data from a spreadsheet (e.g. Microsoft Excel, Google Docs, Apple Numbers...) or a text file. This is particularly helpful when you do not want to (or can not) export your data any time you change it or when you want to use only specific columns. Typing your data directly into the text area. While it is unlikely to use this option, it can be useful for editing your data."

What's Wrong with MOOCs and Why Aren't They Working? - 1 views

  •  
    "there is no live teacher engagement... Currently, just 10 percent of MOOC registrants complete their courses. Where Will MOOCs Be Just Two Years From Now? Within the next two years, MOOCs will quickly evolve from lacking teacher engagement to having a lot of teacher engagement. Right now, it's essentially a model where computers are teaching students. This model is simply not sustainable in the long run without live student-teacher engagement. Teachers are the key that unlocks learning in these courses. They help students resolve issues and problems. Will the biggest change in online education moving forward be putting live teachers at the center of the MOOC (not just on video)? We will know the answer very soon."
