Dr. Roger Mignosa, D.O. Dead Bug Exercise - YouTube - 0 views

  •  
    Those of you who know Roger will appreciate this video. The first of many to come! "Sagittal stability is the foundation for all movement. The dead bug exercise balances the core muscles to optimize the flow of the breath and increases space in the lumbar spine enabling improved coordination of the legs. This exercise is done in 2-3 month old infants before they are able to roll, crawl, sit and stand. If this exercise is difficult it is likely that you compensate for an unbalanced core with excessive tension in your arms and legs. Category"

Mindstorms: what did Papert argue and what does it mean for learning and education? - 0 views

  • Papert was critical of educational institutions resistance to the inevitable need for children to refine their theories of ideas over time. Papert believed that if it is true that people learn by essentially “debugging” their beliefs, school should be a place in which debugging is viewed as essential, encouraged, and supported
  • Papert’s critique of modern education is that by learning academic’s formal representations of knowledge, students come to hate learning.
  • Papert saw one problem with representations such as the Logo turtle: they were still abstract
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • But it wasn’t just computers that Papert viewed as necessary for realizing his vision. It was also computing, and in particular, concrete expressions of systematic procedures, which we now call algorithms.
  •  
    "The central premise of Papert's ideas about learning is that we "construct" knowledge. His claim here is not that we literally do this out of bricks, blocks, code, or paper, but that our process of learning as humans is an iterative, cumulative one, not one of "absorbing" knowledge fully formed."

Colleges Grapple With Teaching the Technology and Ethics of A.I. - The New York Times - 0 views

  •  
    "It had only been three years since Professor Blanton started the class, but as artificial intelligence moves from the stuff of dystopian fantasies - robots run amok - to the reality of everyday use, universities around the country are grappling with the best ways to teach it. This year, Carnegie Mellon said it became the first university in the country to offer a separate undergraduate A.I. degree through its College of Computer Science. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology last month announced plans to establish a college for A.I., backed by $1 billion in investments. "
