Remixing Malcolm X’s The Ballot or the Bullet
The bullet. The bullet. The bullet.
All of us have suffered here, in this country, political oppression at the hands of the white man, economic exploitation at the hands of the white man, and social degradation at the hands of the white man.
I believe in action on all fronts by
whatever means necessary.
I just can’t believe everyone in here is a friend, and I
don’t want to leave anybody out. The question tonight, as I
understand it, is “The Negro Revolt, and Where Do We Go From Here?” or
What Next?” In my little humble way of understanding it, it points toward either the ballot or the bullet.
In 2016, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) devices like the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Microsoft HoloLens are expected to launch in the consumer entertainment market, and many of these devices can also serve a dual purpose for use in educational and research contexts. Join the UCIT Center for Simulations & Virtual Environments Research (UCSIM) to explore potential use-cases for traditional, hybrid, or online courses, and special considerations for designing studies using AR/VR technologies. ucsim.uc.edu
“The surprise was this: going through this thing was not only not-scary, it was incredibly fun.” – Ethan Reed, “Getting Under the Hood With Arduino” Scholars’ Lab
Work together to learn about Arduino microcontrollers and make a LED blink. As a group, we will work through the Adafruit Getting Started Lessons to learn the basic components, download the necessary software, download or write a sketch, and run our first programs. We will also discuss and explore potential applications for libraries and the digital humanities.
Participants will need a laptop and be able to install the Arduino IDE. 10 kits will be available to session attendees.
