LEGO® Education sviluppa l'apprendimento nella scienza, tecnologia, ingegneria e matematica con la nuova piattaforma Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS®

Oggi, LEGO® Education ha annunciato la disponibilità della piattaforma Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS®, la prossima generazione di robotica per le aule scolastiche che porta avanti una tradizione di 15 anni di tecnologia robotica MINDSTORMS per l'educazione. La piattaforma EV3 è stata creata in base al feedback da oltre 800 educatori in tutto il mondo e fornisce un programma di robotica pertinente e la tecnologia per insegnare informatica, scienza, tecnologia, ingegneria e matematica attraverso esperienze dirette con sensori, motori, programmazione e il componente programmabile EV3. Gli studenti possono ora costruire e programmare un robot completamente funzionante in una sola lezione di 45 minuti.

La piattaforma include un programma personalizzabile offerto in formato digitale e che può essere installato direttamente nel pacchetto di programmazione software lobby MINDSTORMS di LEGO Education. Il libro di esercizi incorporato può essere usato dagli studenti per memorizzare il loro lavoro mentre progrediscono con le lezioni, rendendo facile per gli insegnanti il lavoro di controllo del progresso degli studenti e la valutazione degli stessi.

La piattaforma EV3 comprende progetti ingegneristici e un pacchetto di programmi con 30 ore di istruzioni per il lavoro nelle aule. La struttura delle attività del programma di progetti ingegneristici segue i reali processi ingegneristici usati dagli scienziati e dagli ingegneri in molti settori. Utilizzando i video di robot reali come ispirazione, gli studenti hanno a disposizione una direttiva per la progettazione che li incoraggia a sviluppare, progettare e condividere la loro soluzione. Durante tutto il processo, gli studenti imparano grazie alla combinazione e all'applicazione di competenze disciplinari scientifiche, tecnologiche e matematiche mentre costruiscono il loro progetto. Questa struttura è studiata per aiutare gli studenti a sviluppare le capacità di pensiero creativo, problem-solving, lavoro di squadra e le capacità comunicative necessarie al successo sia in ambito scolastico che nel mondo reale.

Il pacchetto principale Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS comprende la componente EV3 Brick, una batteria ricaricabile, sensori, motori, un'ampia selezione di altre componenti, una ruota a palla nuova e le istruzioni di costruzione. La piattaforma software intuitiva per EV3 si basa sul software di programmazione grafica di National Instruments LabVIEW™, la stessa tecnologia che è alla base di alcune delle più grandi innovazioni sul pianeta e che include nuove capacità di inserimento dei dati che permette agli studenti di raccogliere, tracciare grafici e calcolare i loro risultati. Inoltre è disponibile il pacchetto di sviluppo Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS, che consente agli studenti di costruire robot ancora più grandi e complessi. Per facilitare la gestione dei corsi in aula, sia il pacchetto principale che quello di sviluppo sono forniti di contenitori e di vassoio per l'ordinamento.

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
As organizations shift toward IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. CommVault can ensure protection &E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...
