Creative Know How: Competencies for Student Success in a World of Change
Grace Belfiore, Dave Lash, EDUCAUSE Review, 2018/03/28
The five competencies discussed in this article show up briefly in the middle of the piece, but otherwise the bulk of the material promotes the MyWays framework as a whole. The five competencies, for the record, are: critical thinking & problem solving; creativity & entrepreneurship; communication & collaboration; information, media & technology skills; and practical life skills.

Facebook Container Isolates Facebook From The Rest of Your Firefox Browsing

Facebook Container Isolates Facebook From The Rest of Your Firefox Browsing
Justin Pot, How-To Geek, 2018/03/27
I use Firefox to browse the web because it doesn't report back to Facebook or Google. It's not that I'm paranoid, but I don't trust businesses that collect and sell my data. It's also the same reason I don't use Facebook. But if you need to use Facebook for whatever reason, this might be an option. More...

Redirect FB algorithms now and 4 lessons from Cambridge Analytica
Inge de Waard, Ignatia Webs, 2018/03/27

Let’s stop pretending Facebook cares

Let’s stop pretending Facebook cares
Violet Blue, Engadget, 2018/03/26

But they don't. Nowhere is this clearer than in the case of Facebook, which knew about data mining and election tampering activities as far back as 2015, but is only now doing the apology tour.

Style Transfer as a Service

Style Transfer as a Service
Rodrigo Castro, 2018/03/26
This was a really interesting article to read. At certain points you might have to just skip over some of the tech details (unless you really want to dig deep, which I applaud). The idea here was to offer a machine learning application as a service. The application takes regular photos and renders them in the style of some artwork (hence: 'style transfer'). More...

Scholars scour eBay

Scholars scour eBay
Nice look at the twin-edged sword eBay provides to academic researchers seeking original materials (such as, say, a copy of Whitman that was owned by Thoreau). On the one hand, the online aution makes it possible for devotees everywhere to acquire rare or obscure material. More...
