Maker Education on a Budget - The Learner's Way - 2 views

  •  
    There is growing interest from schools in the Maker Movement and Maker Education but with this have come some subtle misunderstandings about what it is all about. For one the modern maker movement is all about the mindset of the maker rather than developing a set of specific skills for making. The second confusion stems from a belief that the maker movement is all about the tools and the makerspace and that as such it involves large budgets.

Bertrand Russell's Inductivist Turkey - 3 views

  • The turkey found that, on his first morning at the turkey farm, he was fed at 9 a.m. Being a good inductivist turkey he did not jump to conclusions. He waited until he collected a large number of observations that he was fed at 9 a.m. and made these observations under a wide range of circumstances, on Wednesdays, on Thursdays, on cold days, on warm days. Each day he added another observation statement to his list. Finally he was satisfied that he had collected a number of observation statements to inductively infer that “I am always fed at 9 a.m.”.

    However on the morning of Christmas eve he was not fed but instead had his throat cut.

    It doesn’t matter how many cases we list during our inductivist reasoning, nothing guarantees that the next case will lay in this inference we deducted from our observations, as the possible experiments and observations are infinite by number and type.

    The only valid scientific method is to test the theory using the assertions which can be deduced.

Convert PDF to CSV Tables in Tact - 5 views

    • Tabula really is a wonderful tool for extracting data from tables in PDFs. It’s a locally hosted web app that allows you to

      1. Select one or more PDFs with the data you want.
      2. Identify the area of the page from which to extract the data.
      3. Save the data in CSV, TSV, or JSON format.

      I gave Tabula a try on the same PDF tables I wrote about last night, and it worked perfectly. You may recall that I didn’t like the column headings in the original table. Well, Tabula let me drag a rectangle to select just the data portion of the table, leaving the stuff I didn’t want out of the extracted CSV file.
