Educational Software Design


  1. For some time now, Microsoft's software and services have stood unencumbered by the competition in education. For better or for worse, Windows and Office were the default tools for many students over the years. However, as schools began to incorporate more of the Internet into their curriculum and coursework, the need for Microsoft's services changed. Recently Microsoft has responded with changes to its online software and service offerings for schools and teachers.
  2. Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important.

I could be mistaken, but at one time I thought the kit offered by FIRST to FLL teams included the Education 45544 set, the programming software, and also the EV3 expansion set (part 45560). If that is true, it would be make the 499 USD offer a reasonable deal. I see in the forums people mention Home edition upgrades, etc so I think Home edition works, but I'd appreciate confirmation.
  5. That's a form of intelligence that others in the field have been working on for years. For further hungry shark evolution hack details please visit Koedinger of Carnegie Mellon calls it step-level adaptation,” meaning that the software responds to each step a student takes toward a solution, as opposed to problem-level adaptation,” where the software analyzes only the student's final answer. Carnegie Learning's Cognitive Tutor, which Koedinger co-developed, helped to pioneer this approach. You can play with a basic demo of this sort of functionality in the simple interactive below, provided to Slate by Koedinger and Carnegie Mellon's Pittsburgh Advanced Cognitive Tutoring Center.
