Interesting Connections

A colleague of mine recently shared a research-connection-making site with me. The idea behind the site is to help create new links between research topics by doing machine searches for key words on sites such as the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), Europeana, and Flickr Commons.

I added my dissertation abstract, from which it extracted the keywords: feedback, planning, speed, utilizes, like, console, knowledge, much, better, setting, input, combination, game, using, and literacy.

What surprised me was that those keywords returned several images of people playing the piano!

Some highlights:
