    1. Towards teaching as design: Exploring the interplay between full-lifecycle learning design tooling and Teacher Professional Development.

      This article explores the theory of training teachers as learning designers to promote innovate and creativity. Included in the article are studies of designers with little teaching experience compared with those that are full-cycle teachers and the effect of TPD and LD upon training.

    1. Components.js is a dependency injection framework for JavaScript applications. Instead of hard-wiring software components together, Components.js allows these components to be instantiated and wired together declaratively using semantic configuration files. The advantage of these semantic configuration files is that software components can be uniquely and globally identified using URIs. Configurations can be written in any RDF serialization, such as JSON-LD. This software is aimed for developers who want to build modular and easily configurable and rewireable JavaScript applications.
    1. If you want to make the Semantic Web a reality, stop making the case for it and spend your time doing something more useful, like actually making machines smarter or helping people publish data in a way that’s useful to them.

      Soooo true !

    1. RDF Translator is a multi-format conversion tool for structured markup. It provides translations between data formats ranging from RDF/XML to RDFa or Microdata. The service allows for conversions triggered either by URI or by direct text input. Furthermore it comes with a straightforward REST API for developers.
    1. 1 down vote unaccept It's necessary that the term match the IRI you use for the property. For example, schema.org defines name as http://schema.org/name. In your example, you have http://www.schema.org/name. There are also several places where values which should be IRIs (URLs) are treated as text, for this you want to use something like "http://schema.org/image": {"@id": "/static/track_images_200/lr1734_2009720_1372375126.jpg"} Part of term selection looks to be sure that a value matches the appropriate @type definition within the context. For example, image is set to {"@type": "@id"}, so it will only match things that look like that.
    1. { "@context": "https://schema.org/docs/jsonldcontext.json", "@type": ["Article", "NewsArticle", "TechArticle", "ScholarlyArticle"], "author": { "@embed": "@always" }, "creator": { "@embed": "@always" } }
    1. <script type="application/ld+json"> { "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type" : "WebPage", "name" : "The Name of the Webpage", "author" : { "@type" : "Person", "@id": "#tim", "name" : "Tim" }, "creator": { "@id": "#tim" }, "copyrightHolder": { "@id": "#tim" } } </script>
    1. Pitfalls of Framed JSON-LD The choice to provide framed JSON-LD does have some downsides, though. Any entity within the graph that is repeated is only fully referenced in the flattened, framed JSON-LD. This behavior is most evident when viewing an autobiographic work, such as "The autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, 1706-1757". In the example below, you can see that the entity representing Benjamin Franklin is both a schema:creator and a schema:about. However, Benjamin Franklin’s full details only appear in one place in the framed JSON-LD. This is problematic for someone using the data in an object-oriented manner rather than treating it as a graph.

    1. A JSON-LD document is a representation of a directed graph. A single directed graph can have many different serializations, each expressing exactly the same information. Developers typically work with trees, represented as JSON objects. While mapping a graph to a tree can be done, the layout of the end result must be specified in advance. A Frame can be used by a developer on a JSON-LD document to specify a deterministic layout for a graph.

    1. Over the years, Google has gone from recommending uploading a text file, to parsing RDFa with a slightly modified Microformats vocabulary, to going all-in on Microdata, to then replacing Microdata with JSON-LD and the new Schema.org vocabulary. In the mean time, the Microformats hReview vocabulary hasn't changed, and has continued to be parsed by Google since it is so widely deployed. It would seem there is some advantage to using a format that was developed externally from Google, since they are unable to simply turn their backs on it and replace it with a new format whenever they want. For this reason, I'm sticking with publishing the Microformats 1 hReview markup for my reviews.

    1. Services rely on the interfaces between them to communicate and for this to work flawlessly, messages must have a format and semantics that every interface can read.

      This makes JSON-LD (JSON for Linking Data http://json-ld.org/) and Hydra (A Vocabulary for Hypermedia-Driven Web APIs) interesting, see http://www.programmableweb.com/news/how-to-build-hypermedia-apis-json-ld-and-hydra/analysis/2015/07/30

    1. **Reflex Math

      Maybe worth purchasing for summer practice.

    2. **Math-U-See

      ADS Sped instructor was using this for our daughter last year and seemed to think it worked well.

    3. fully multisensory or partially multisensory

      Focused on one approach for a particular variety of dyscalculia or underlying cause?

    1. The former is possibly most helped by interventions emphasising understanding, and the latter may be by drill-type interventions.

      Seems limited in approach.

    2. So in a way, research on this is just beginning. I personally am involved in a project to test a remediation designed for dyscalculic children, and there are other such projects underway.

      I'm going to email her about this. I did find this site, but the link to Number Race (a software remediation) is broken.

    3. There has been much work on this question in the educational field, and there are many curricula designed for children with difficulties in mathematics. However very few of these curricula have been rigorously tested for their efficacy, and the studies that do exist include children who have difficulties in mathematics for all sorts of reasons, not just those with dyscalculia.

      BUT do they work? In an odd way, I don't like this dismissal of this work working for kids with all sorts of math difficulties given the gap it seems to be making for future curriculum target marketing. So many curricula support learners with multiple needs. This is hardly a reason to discredit or at the very least dismiss or passover these curricula. Wish they were named here?!

    4. a more detailed examination of mathematics abilities.

      What's this? Because we've done all the rest. Speaks to the limitations of this entry here.

    5. Another researcher, Geary (1993), has argued for three different subtypes of dyscalculia, one based on difficulties in fact retrieval (ie. learning simple addition sums, and times tables), one based on difficulties in learning procedures and strategies, and one based on visuo-spatial difficulties.

      Reading this I would bet a million bucks that these are all in play with Sadie, so....discredited based on one case? :0

    6. just have dyscalculia

      I think we are in this camp with our daughter given her facility with communication about ANYTHING else in any other mode.

    8. Shalev & Gross-Tsur (2001).

      I'm going to hunt this one down asap. It's older than I would think work on this would be given the 30 year point made earlier re: dyslexia.

    9. brain dysfunction is the only explanation left

      I'm not sure how I feel about this given our limited capabilities to "rule all other factors out."

    10. attentional disorders

      I'm guessing teachers might see this one, but I can't imagine that's the case given all the strength in all other life domains and the multiple ways in which math instruction has been approached for Sadie [my daughter] from an early age (e.g.,home, school, concrete, abstract, algorithmic, wrote memorization and practice, etc.). This also gets complicated given the prevalence of all these other "reasons" in the popular discourse as opposed to the more nascent suggestion (construction) of dyscalculia.
