Thomas Suarez: iPhone application developer… and 6th grader

Thu, Dec 1, 2011|Filed in: Videos|Topics: , , |Comments Off on Thomas Suarez: iPhone application developer… and 6th grader

From TED: Thomas Suarez is a 6th grade student at a middle school in the South Bay of Los Angeles. When Apple released the Software Development Kit (SDK), he began to create and sell his own applications. "My parents, my friends and even the people at the Apple store all supported me," he says, "and Steve Jobs inspired me". Thomas points out that it's hard to learn how to make an app. "For soccer you could go to a soccer team ... but what if you want to make an app?" He's started a club for fellow students at school, where he shares his knowledge of programming. Thomas articulates his vision that students are a valuable new technology resource to teachers, and should be empowered to offer assistance in developing the technology curriculum and also assist in delivering the lessons.

Classical conducting? There’s an App for that

Wed, Nov 23, 2011|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , |Comments Off on Classical conducting? There’s an App for that

Review by Allan Kozinn in NY Times: Jeffrey Kahane offered glimpses of both the past and a possible future in his performance with the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall on Tuesday evening. In the first half of the program he conducted works by Bach and Mozart from the harpsichord, a nod to the practice of the time, and later he was both soloist and conductor in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1. He played the Beethoven from memory, but for the Mozart, he used an iPad instead of a conventional score. Seeing the device perched on the harpsichord’s music stand called to mind the cover of Wendy Carlos’s “Switched-On Bach” album, on which the bewigged composer stands before a Moog synthesizer, though the iPad is elegantly miniature by comparison. · Go to Classical conducting?
