Here’s my #AnimateYourWorld exploration using the #VideoSensing blocks in @scratch. I wanted to bring my books to life! The blue square recognizes what book I’m reading (based on color of the cover) and populates my screen with some interactive characters. #ComputationalTinkering
This is amazing.

I made a quick test:
In fact, designing a high-filtration but transparent mask or face shield might be an important solution in classrooms as well, to help keep teachers safe.
When windows cannot be opened, classrooms could run portable HEPA filters, which are capable of trapping viruses this small, and which sell for as little as a few hundred dollars. Marr advises schools to measure airflow rates in each classroom, upgrade filters in the HVAC system to MERV 13 or higher (these are air filter grades), and aspire to meet or exceed ASHRAE (the professional society that provides HVAC guidance and standards) standards.
This is a really interesting article. I am not sure how long I could keep windows open in my classroom as we move through autumn into winter.

Looks like a fascinating read. I didn’t find an expert. I find I learn to notice with a hint. I’ve walking same bits of countryside for years. Recently I’ve got my eye in for lizards. I see more & more basking or wriggling in the grass. #tds1856

En passant: this fabulous hoard of family photographs reminds one that most people living today will leave nothing like this because their digital photographs will be on computer disks or hosted on online servers. Which means that when they die, most of those accounts will be closed or inaccessible to relatives, and the images will therefore be lost to posterity. Which is why, when people ask me about digital preservation, I tell them to print anything they wish to preserve and store them in shoeboxes in their attics. That’s the only way their grandchildren and great-grandchildren will ever be able to see them.
