LEGO® Education draagt bij tot de verdere ontwikkeling van STEM-onderwijs met LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education EV3-platform

Vandaag heeft LEGO® Education het LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education EV3-platform aangekondigd. Dit is de nieuwste generatie van robottechnologie voor het klaslokaal, voortbouwend op 15 jaar MINDSTORMS robottechnologie voor het onderwijs. Het EV3-platform is gebaseerd op feedback van meer dan 800 docenten wereldwijd en biedt een relevant lesprogramma en robottechnologie voor het doceren van computerwetenschappen, wetenschap, technologie, techniek en wiskunde door middel van een praktijkgerichte benadering met sensoren, motoren, programmering en de programmeerbare EV3-bouwsteen. Studenten kunnen nu een volledig functionerende robot bouwen en programmeren binnen een enkele lesperiode van 45 minuten.

Het platform omvat een aanpasbaar lesprogramma dat digitaal wordt gepresenteerd en dat rechtstreeks wordt geïnstalleerd op de LEGO Education MINDSTORMS-programming software lobby. Het ingebouwde digitale werkboek kan door studenten worden gebruikt om hun werk vast te leggen tijdens het doornemen van de lessen, waardoor de docent de vorderingen van studenten eenvoudiger kan volgen en hun werk kan beoordelen.

Het EV3-platform omvat Design Engineering Projects, een lespakket met 30 uur aan lesmateriaal voor klassikaal onderwijs. De structuur van de activiteiten in het lesprogramma voor Design Engineering Projects volgt het proces voor techniekontwerp dat wordt gehanteerd door wetenschappers en technici in diverse bedrijfstakken. Met video’s van robots uit de praktijk ter inspiratie krijgen de studenten een beknopte ontwerpopdracht die hen uitdaagt tot het ontwikkelen, ontwerpen en delen van hun eigen oplossing. In de loop van het gehele proces doen de studenten kennis op door het combineren en toepassen van vaardigheden op het gebied van wetenschap, technologie en wiskunde om een ontwerpoplossing op te zetten. Deze structuur is ontworpen om studenten te helpen bij het ontwikkelen van creatief denken en het oplossen van problemen in teamvorm, en het ontwikkelen van de communicatieve vaardigheden die noodzakelijk zijn voor succes op school en daarna.

De LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set omvat de EV3-bouwsten, een oplaadbare batterij, sensoren, motoren, een grote selectie bouwstenen, een nieuw balwiel en bouwinstructies. Het intuïtieve softwareplatform voor EV3 is gebaseerd op de grafische programmeersoftware National Instruments LabVIEW™. Op deze technologie zijn enkele van de belangrijkste innovaties op onze planeet gebaseerd. De technologie bevat nieuwe mogelijkheden voor gegevensregistratie waarmee studenten hun gegevens kunnen verzamelen, in kaart brengen en doorrekenen. Daarnaast is er de LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Expansion Set, die studenten in staat stelt grotere, complexere robots te bouwen. De basisset en uitbreidingsset zijn beide voorzien van opslag- en sorteerruimte om de klassikale instructie eenvoudig te beheren.

LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 kan nu al worden besteld en zal in het najaar van 2013 worden geleverd.

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
