Can You Hear Me Now? 🎥Hollywood’s Transition from Silents to Sound 🔊🎙️ #OnDemand
At first, they were called "flickers" ... "actualities" ... and entertainment for "common folk." Then they grew in stature. Bold epics, poignant dramas, slapstick clowns - and MOVIE STARS!! So why did Hollywood then proceed to tamper with success and reinvent the wheel by adding sound? What did "talking pictures" do for both the art and the business sides of the film industry? And what does Singin' in the Rain have to do with it? Hey, we may not have much playing in movie theaters right now, but there's plenty of older stuff to discover. As Lauren Bacall famously said, "It's not an old movie if you haven't seen it."

Math+C: Mathematics through programming in the elementary grades 💭 💻 #OnDemand
Our NSF-funded project, Math+C, at Education Development Center, in partnership with the Waltham, MA, Public Schools, is developing a coherent integration of computer science (CS) ideas and skills into elementary mathematics, using programming as a language to help children express and explore mathematical ideas. The idea is that programming, used appropriately, can be a medium and language for mathematical and computational thinking, changing how children learn mathematics and helping develop and expose children's computational thinking. For teachers, it can offer opportunities to see children’s thinking in new ways. We are investigating this idea, working closely with children and teachers in grades 2–5.
