Looking for tips with a touchscreen setup

Hey guys,I have decided I wanted to add some neon lights to my car. I bought some neopixel strips and I want it customizable. So I am putting in a HXD8357D touch screen. This is the first time I have worked with touchscreens, so I was curious, is the screen I linked compatible with processing? Or how would that work? via /r/arduino

Awesome Shield

Mit Awesome Shield soll der Einstieg ins Programmieren Spaß machen.

Direkt im Code programmieren, mit Hardware basteln und Dinge erfinden – mit Awesome Shield soll das ganz einfach und motivierend sein. Die Erfinder von Awesome Shield möchten keinen Spielzeugbaukasten anbieten, sondern Kindern (bzw. Erwachsenen) ab 10 Jahren eine facettenreiche Plattform servieren, die zum Ausprobieren, Programmieren und Tüfteln einladen soll. Alles fängt mit über 100…

The #HTVAmericanFreedom isn’t very active right now because we’re preparing for a big trip! We’re taking the bus on a #roadtrip to #glaciernationalpark in July. Raymond is designing some #arduino engine monitoring systems so we can get live feedback while in motion. Quentin is designing a roof rack so we can carry gear for 15. I’m (Tabatha) heading up trip logistics. #npscentennial #apgarcampground #montana #glacier #buslife #busremodel #busrenovation #rvlife #buscamper #bustorv #schoolbus #schoolie # #schoolbusrenovation #camping #buyabus by htvamericanfreedom https://www.instagram.com/p/BFDY7xtH9V9/

Technology and Assessment Reflection

What is your philosophy of technology use in the classroom?

My philosophy of using technology in the classroom revolves around its ability to allow students to make a variety of connections and to make learning exciting. I was baffled by my own excitement of programming the blinking lights with Arduinos and will always remember the assistant principal saying that every lesson should feel like this.

What technologies do you see yourself using?

As an English teacher, I see myself using any type of Web 2.0 application that allows students to incorporate many mediums into their learning. From my own Web 2.0 assignment I already know that I will incorporate Booktrack.com. It allows students to experience the mood of a story with different musical arrangements. This will help auditory learners connect with texts in unprecedented ways.

What limitations come along with using technology in the classroom?

Technology can fail at any moment, meaning that a complex and engaging assignment on the smartboard can disappear at a moment’s notice. I also remember the frustration of not being able to get the QR codes to work. I have also seen students in classrooms become frustrated when their laptops will not load the required materials, and are at times unable to complete homework because their family can’t afford internet service.

How can you effectively use technology in your classroom?

As mentioned before, technology can be used to incorporate a variety of learning styles. I can utilize tools such as virtual reality to allow students an interactive experience with settings of novels and plays. I can also use tools that combine sound and visuals with a certain text. For example, I taught a lesson recently in which I had students analyze the characteristics of the singer and subject in love songs and had students listen to the song as they took notes. Certain tools, such as padlet, can give me lightning fast feedback. I envision myself instructing students to do a warm up on padlet, such as giving me their best definitions of certain literary terms. This way, I can see their thinking almost the moment that they type it.

What will you do between now and your first job to grow as a teacher who uses technology in the classroom?

I will continue to research new Web 2.0 tools and think critically about the ways in which my cooperating teachers use technology to enhance student engagement and learning. I also see myself improving my own skills with using Smartboard and its multiple applications. Smartboard not only allows a teacher to present information in clear ways, but incorporates auditory, visual, and hands on learning.

How will you continue your professional development as a teacher, in regard to using technology?

I will keep up to date on professional development opportunities focused on the use of technology. I will not only use these opportunities to learn how to use multiple applications but how to think of a technology minded person. Seeing most of the technology that we have learned about will become obsolete in five years, I want to become skilled at quickly adapting to the ever changing world.  

What are your thoughts regarding the grading and assessment system?

You and other teachers have made very convincing cases in favor of standards based grading. I love that it allows students to move at their own pace and challenges students to advance. The scale of ‘developing’ towards ‘advanced’ feels much more specific than a letter scale. Reflecting back on the way teachers gave out grades, I think that many teachers gave A’s to work that was satisfactory instead of advanced. This encouraged me to do the bare minimum of work. I think if the highest grade were advanced, I would have challenged myself much more often to go above and beyond what was expected of me. I also believe that using a standards based grading system will force me to look think more critically about the quality of my students’ work. It will get me thinking about what work is merely satisfactory and what works exceeds grade level.

Is the Kangaroo Light a night light, a reading lamp, a desk lamp, a flashlight, bathroom light, a bag light or a place mat? It is all of them and in fact the fun part about the Kangaroo Light is figuring out new ways you can use it. And for the techie ones out there who like to hack the heck out of things, you will probably be ecstatic to know that the Kangaroo Light is arduino compatible and totally customizable!

The Kangaroo Light has 24 built-in LED lights that are enclosed in a soft flexible white silicone exterior that is splash proof. The LED lights are powered by a built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery that offers about 2.5 hours of non-stop light. The batteries can be charged using any USB power outlet.

This amazing light is light and portable which makes it the perfect companion when you go on a camping trip. It is flexible so you can easily slip it into a backpack or even your pocket. Drop it into your handbag and you have an illuminated bag. Perfect for looking for small items.

What makes the Kangaroo Light totally awesome is with the arduino support and an incorporated accelerometer and touch electrodes, it can be made interactive. It also features sound sensitivity and light alarms. Illumination can be controlled and it has different modes such as on, off, flicker, pulsing and the intensity can be changed. A free app is available for connecting wirelessly and customizing the Kangaroo Light. With a little creativity and some experimentation, the possibilities are endless.

The Kangaroo Light also has the honor of being one of the selected items to be featured on the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) Store. Studio Banana, the people behind the light are also the same people who brought you the wacky Ostrich Pillow.
