Next-Generation Learning: Preparing for the Common Core Online Assessments
Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013
11:00 AM PST | 2:00 PM EST
Duration: 60 minutes
K–12 districts are gearing up for a big transition to digital curriculum. The motivation for this may lie with new common core state standards and the online assessments that are coming soon. The shift from paper and pencil assessments to online will require some BIG changes in how schools do business. However, to effectively establish and sustain readiness for this movement, leaders must consider the people and processes side by side with district policy and technology.
Please join the Center for Digital Education and Whittier Union High School District to discuss challenges and how to support student learning, as well as establish district and school readiness. Learn how to help teachers and administrators determine the necessary curriculum, technology, processes, and infrastructure to enhance success in our schools.
Key considerations we will cover during this live, interactive webinar will include:

Crash Course on Gaming and Learning - Mark Chen
STEMx teachers who are familiar with the landscape of gaming have an advantage in thinking about using games or game-inspired activities and mechanics in their classrooms. This mini-course introduces educators to the world of gaming culture through playing games critically and reflectively, as well as participating in online gaming communities and reading game studies, journalism blogs, and texts. Gaming and being a gamer is much more than playing games; it involves engaging with a rich, dynamic cultural world. Learning from games is as much about understanding how to participate in this social world as it is about learning gaming content. Mini-course participants will live stream, record, and share their gaming sessions, making “Let’s Play” videos that focus on how gaming experiences relate to and affect classroom practice and the design of STEMx learning environments. The Let’s Play videos will be uploaded to YouTube, adding to a repository of teacher-oriented gaming videos. Blogging and participating in online forums around current gaming topics and issues will also be required.

Image and video processing: From Mars to Hollywood with a stop at the hospital
Watch intro video
Session start dates:
Jan 20th 2014 (9 weeks long)
What is image and video processing? Images and videos are everywhere, from those we take with our mobile devices and share with our friends to those that we receive from Mars and the ones we see in the movie theatre, without forgetting the whole ensemble of images of our bodies that are taken in hospital visits. Image and video processing is the art of working with such images and movies, from making it possible to store and transmit them to making those dark and blurry images look nice, as well as interpreting and analyzing the medical data and recognizing our friends’ faces in social pictures. This discipline is also fascinating because it uses tools from many areas of applied mathematics. In this class you will look behind the scenes of image and video processing, from the basic and classical tools to the most modern and advanced algorithms.
