I teach introductory no-prerequisite classes in #DH to undergrad and grad students. We focus on building sustainable, well-documented digital projects #dayofdh2020 @nelcuw @ds_uw @UW_iSchool #MLIS @SimpsonCenter
We use a variety of tools in class to explore humanities datasets and build exhibits including @omeka, @OpenRefine, @VoyantTools, #GaleDigitalScholarLab, @knightlab #StoryMapJS @neatline amongst others.
A few class highlights: Summer 2019’s online survey course through @UW_iSchool introducing students to concepts/methodologies of working with, and analyzing primary source texts using digital tools.bit.ly/dh-summer2019

1/16...Far too often I find that many adults like to focus on the negatives surrounding social media/technology and our kids. We like to celebrate and recognize the positives. In this spirit, I offer the following examples: #parents #digitalliteracy #socialmediasafety #STEAM
What about this teen who developed this App to help students manage their homework
3/16... what about teens who are winning full 4 year college scholarships to join e-gaming teams

Here we go again: US govt tells Facebook to kill end-to-end encryption for the sake of the children theregister.co.uk/2019/10/04/us_… via @theregister
1/n La pression est continue (et pas nouvelle), mais ce n'est en aucun cas une réalité aujourd'hui, le chiffrement de WhatsApp est toujours exempt de porte dérobée, et l'application utilise le même protocole de chiffrement que Signal. Les failles de sécurité de WhatsApp...
2/n se situent au niveau de l'application, et pour celles qui sont devenues publiques, à ma connaissance, aucune de ces failles ne remet en cause le chiffrement en tant que tel (zdnet.fr/actualites/une…). Ce genre de faille n'est pas non plus propre à WhatsApp, par exemple...

After a quick photo op with the @DSP_SPE #scipol #NextGenCanSci #dreamteam, I'm attending the #CSPC2018 panel @sciencepolicy on the social implications of emerging technologies w/ @ideas_idees @SocMedDr @emmeslin @Scienceadvice
Discussion questions for 2-way Q&A at the emerging technologies panel #cspc2018 ⬇️
Directions: There are some questions that are easy to answer, others that are more important that are harder to answer (@emmeslin). The social implications of new tech, esp if algorithms can exponentially increase biases and misinformation, are the latter (@SocMedDr) #CSPC2018

Now up: Zachary Brown, Lead Data Scientist at S&P Global on #DataScience and #OpenEducation for the enterprise. Dayjob: #AI, Sidehustle: building #digital skills using #opensource #ODSCWest @School_GC
#DigitalLiteracy - Why? Effective work today requires a lot of associated learning. @linuxfoundation @github #VersionControl #Visualization -- continuous learning is critical. Optimal tools & processes are probably not the ones you are using now (Matlab vs. Scikit-Learn)
Need an evolving understanding for what tools are available today to get your work done. If you want your business people to work with your #datascience team, they need to understand what data is and what it can do. Also helps to avoid chasing buzzwords and bling.

Orientation session at #APrIGF2018, #VintCerf: Internet is not useful if it doesn't work. Resilience is an imp. aspect of the Internet. As the global warming continues, water rise continues there rises concerns for cable landings. #internetsociety
#VintCerf continues to discuss fragile aspects of digital content. He asks the audience if the data they store in whichever form, cloud/hard disk. Will it continue to exist at the same place after 50years? #APrIGF2018
#VintCerf cites an example of how with technological advancement his floppy disks have been rendered useless. And in this light, he urges the tech community to take care of how and where we document our content. #APrIGF2018
