Behold | - 4 views

    About Behold BeholdTM is a search engine for high-quality Flickr images. It aims to answer your queries based on what is inside the images -- at the pixel level. It offers a completely new way to search for images, using techniques of computer vision. It is different to standard image search engines, such as Flickr or Google, because those search through images using only image tags and filenames. Behold looks for high quality images, so you don't have to sift through hundreds of poorly taken pictures to find a good one. Behold uses both aesthetic and technical quality indicators to find some of the best images available online. Behold draws computational power from Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) to handle large volumes of images. Features Behold is capable of recognising a number of visual concepts in pictures. You can ask Behold to return images that look like one of these concepts. This new type of search can be flexibly combined with regular text-based search. For example you can ask Behold to return images tagged with the word 'london' that look like pictures of buildings (try it!). You can also filter text-based image search results based on what the images actually look like. Both of these features are demonstrated in these videos. With a newly introduced feature, Behold goes one step further and automatically suggests visual filters after analysing the words in your query. It shows you what your search results would look like if you apply one of these filters, so you save time on finding the right one.

    I'm a school improvement coach and I've just begun podcasting. None of my teachers are using them yet, but they all have interactive whiteboards, laptops, and all the technology they would need to begin. I'd be interested in knowing more about the educational podcast.

professional development 21st century learners technology

    I'm working on a designing a 21st century learner themed course for my district.
    GUIDING QUESTIONS are:
    What are key elements of 21st Century Learning?
    What are the characteristics of 21st century learners?
    How do we build momentum in developing the curriculum and assessments that reflect 21st century skills?
    How do we integrate 21st century tools and strategies into our classroom practice?
    How do we establish an optimal 21st century environment in which teachers can teach and students can learn?

    This is a huge task and I'm asking for any ideas or resources you may have. Thank you!
