Trying to find useful things to do with emerging technologies in open education and data journalism

Everybody Should Code? Well, Educators Working in Online Learning in a “Digital First” Organisation Probably Should?Tony Hirst

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 15:49:59 +0000

Pondering Sheila’s thoughts on Why I Don’t Code?, and mulling over some materials we’re prepping as revisions to the database course… I see the update as an opportunity to try to develop the ed tech a bit, make it a bit more interactive, make it a bit “responsive” to students so they can try stuff […]

Cognitive Science, 2.0? Google PsychlabTony Hirst

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 09:58:01 +0000

Whilst I was rooting around looking for things to do the year or two after graduating, I came across the emerging, inter-disciplinary field of cognitive science, which used ideas from cognitive psychology, philosophy, AI, linguistics and neuroscience to try to understand “mind and consciousness stuff”. I read Dennett and Searle, and even toyed with going […]

Potential Issues With Institutionally Mediated Reproducible Research EnvironmentsTony Hirst

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 13:58:16 +0000

One of the advantages, for me, of the Jupyter Binderhub enviornment is that it provides with a large amount of freedom to create my own computational environment in the context of a potentially managed institutional service. At the moment, I’m lobbying for an OU hosted version of Binderhub, probably hosted via Azure Kubernetes, for internal […]

TO DO – Automated Production of a Screencast Showing Evolution of a Web Page?Tony Hirst

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 12:36:23 +0000

Noting @edsu’s Web histories approach describing Richard Rogers’  Doing Web history with the Internet Archive: screencast documentaries, I wonder how hard it would be to write a simple script that automates the collection of screenshots from a web page timeline in the Wayback Machine and stitches them together in a movie? It’s not hard to find […]

Programming in Jupyter Notebooks, via the Heavy Metal UmlautTony Hirst

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 10:27:46 +0000

Way back when, I used to take delight in following the creative tech output of Jon Udell, then at InfoWorld. One of the things I fondly remember is his Heavy Metal Umlaut screencast: You can read about how he put it together via the archived link available from Heavy metal umlaut: the making of the […]

If Only I’d Been More Focussed… National-Local Data Robot Media WireTony Hirstrobot_intermediatePR

And so it came to pass that Urbs Media started putting out their Arria NLG generated local data stories, customised from national data sets, on the PA news wire, as reported by the Press Gazette – First robot-written stories from Press Association make it into print in ‘world-first’ for journalism industry – and Hold the […]

Open ALMS….Tony HirstBinderBinderBinder

A year or two after graduating, and having failed in bid to become an independent music promoter with a couple of others (we booked Hawkwind rather than Nirvana; oops…) I was playing chess with a stoner of Buddha-like nature who showed me how the pieces moved. (That is, I knew how the pieces moved square-wise; […]

Extending the folium Magic…Tony HirstBinder

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 10:36:22 +0000

A couple of days ago I posted about some IPython magic for embedding interactive maps in Jupyter notebooks. I had a bit more of a play yesterday, and then into the night, and started to add support in for other things. For example, you can now build up a map using several pieces of magic, […]

Fragment – Breaking Enigma Was Only Part of the Story…Tony Hirst

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 13:18:38 +0000

Reading Who, me? They warned you about me? on ethics associated with developing new technologies, this quote jumped out at me: [m]y claim is that putting an invention into a public space inevitably makes that invention safer (Mike Loukides, December 7, 2017). In recent years, the UK Government had several goes at passing bills that […]

OERs in Practice: Repurposing Jupyter Notebooks as PresentationsTony Hirst

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 12:47:17 +0000

Over coffee following a maps SIG meeting last week, fellow Jupyter notebooks enthusiast Phil Wheeler wondered about the extent to which tutors / Associate Lecturers might be able to take course materials delivered as notebooks and deliver them in tutorials as slideshows. The RISE notebook extension allows notebooks to be presented using the reveal HTML […]
