Animaker para animar tus clases | Aleph | Scoop.it

Pues a mi juicio se puede hacer de todo un poco, ya el buen Powtoon, nos permitía hacer usos de una multitud de imágenes animadas y efectos, pero las acciones de sus personajes no eran lineales, es decir, si colocamos a una persona trabajando en una computadora, esta solo realizaría una misma acción una y otra vez, sin embargo, Animaker nos permite variar las acciones de un mismo tipo de escena, además de cambiar las expresiones faciales del personajes y todo de una forma tan sencilla que prácticamente parece irreal.

Richard Platt's curator insight, December 3, 2015 6:53 PM

“The evidence so far doesn’t prove that cell phones cause cancer, and we definitely need more and better research,” says Michael Hansen, Ph.D., a senior scientist at Consumer Reports. “But we feel that the research does raise enough questions that taking some common-sense precautions when using your cell phone can make sense.” Specifically, CR recommends these steps:

  • Try to keep the phone away from your head and body. That is particularly important when the cellular signal is weak—when your phone has only one bar, for example—because phones may increase their power then to compensate.
  • Text or video call when possible.
  • When speaking, use the speaker phone on your device or a hands-free headset.
  • Don’t stow your phone in your pants or shirt pocket. Instead, carry it in a bag or use a belt clip.

Richard Platt's curator insight, December 24, 2015 9:00 PM

According to study lead professor Ken Shepard, this is the world's first successful effort to isolate a biological process and use it to power an integrated circuit, much like the ones we use in phones and computers.  The researchers developed the system by using an artificially created lipid bilayer membrane containing naturally occurring ion pumps, which are powered by the biological world's "energy currency molecule," ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the coenzyme that transfers chemical energy between living cells. It is an end product of processes such as photosynthesis and cellular respiration, and it powers the mechanical work of living systems such as cell division and muscle contraction.   The scientists connected the lipid membrane to a conventional solid-state complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) integrated circuit, and the ion pumps powered the circuit.  "Ion pumps basically act very similarly to transistors," Shepard tells Gizmag. "The one we used is the same kind of pump that is used to maintain the resting potential in neurons. The pump produces an actual potential across an artificial lipid membrane. We packaged that with the IC and we used the energy across that membrane due to those pumped ions to power the integrated circuit."

Consumer Reports' Take:  If you're in the market for a streaming media player, the new Amazon Fire TV is worth considering. It's a top-performing player and it's less expensive than the new Apple TV or Roku 4. Compared to the previous model, it features some nice enhancements at no additional cost. It's an especially smart choice if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber and use the company's streaming video and music services.  But there's no compelling reason to upgrade unless you buy a smart TV with no 4K streaming (This means the Fire TV won't be able to support high dynamic range (HDR) content or 60-frames-per-second video. That's a bit strange considering that Amazon Prime is one of the only services currently offering HDR programs. Still, since most available 4K content is either 24 or 30 frames per second, that lack of support might not be an issue for you.); you're unhappy with the smart TV platform on your current set; and you're hungry for Amazon Prime content unavailable on your TV.

How Israel is Becoming a Global Leader in the Internet of Things

How Israel is Becoming a Global Leader in the Internet of Things | Aleph | Scoop.it
By now, nearly everyone has been exposed to the Internet of Things (IoT) in
one way or another, whether through a Fitbit bracelet, a Nest smart
thermostat, or now even the Apple watch.  But despite all of the hype, IoT
is still something of an enigma, both to laymen and investors alike, and
from Silicon Valley all the way to Tel Aviv.  Moreover, for a number of
reasons including a history of Israeli failures in the consumer and
hardware spaces, there is a general lack of belief that Israel can be a
leader in IoT.  

However, at Innovation Endeavors in recent months, we have seen a growing
amount of impressive IoT activity coming out of Israel.  This intrigued us
and led us to do a three-month deep dive into the space. The goal was to
both demystify the existing understanding of IoT and identify the trends,
sectors, and technologies that can serve as significant opportunities for
Israeli entrepreneurs in this space.

Richard Platt's curator insight, January 3, 4:56 PM

Key findings of the landscape

1) IoT is booming with activity in Israel.  According to the landscape research, there are around 330 Israeli IoT companies.  As Israel is home to approximately 6,100 active startups in total, IoT represents a surprisingly whopping 5% of the Israeli startup ecosystem!  These companies pertain to all verticals, stages, and levels of the stack, and address unique problems across many major markets.

2) Israeli IoT leverages Israel’s strengths in sectors like healthcare, life science, and cyber security.  Given Israel’s historical proficiencies, it is not surprising that most of the IoT activity in Israel plays to the country’s unique strengths in areas such as healthcare, science, and cyber security, in new and interesting ways.  For example, one Israeli company in the cyber security vertical is Argus Security, which is building a “firewall” for the connected car, defending your vehicle from being compromised by outside attackers, especially hackers that can take control of your car remotely!  If, on the other hand, you’re less worried about hackers and more worried about calories, Consumer Physics’ molecular pocket sensor allows you to measure the physical world around you, including food, medicine, plants, and more.  For instance, you can scan a piece of cheese and find out complete nutritional information like calories, protein, fat, etc. 

3) The Israeli IoT industry is still far from mature.  Regardless of sector, most companies on the landscape are stuck in the middle stages of their lifecycle, i.e. the R&D or initial revenues stages.  Moreover, nearly 80% of companies are focused around the applications category rather than other levels of the stack (such as IoT platforms or components).  This unbalanced distribution in terms of stage and level suggests a severe lack of infrastructure and maturity in this market wherein startups have not yet found their long-term product-market fit or verticalized their supply.  However, this also represents an opportunity for companies to capitalize on such “whitespaces” in the landscape, particularly around the platform level where the numbers indicate that it is still early in the lifecycle curve.

"Usos constructivos e instructivos de las TIC en el aula" por Jordi Adell

"Usos constructivos e instructivos de las TIC en el aula" por Jordi Adell | Aleph | Scoop.it

El mercado de las TIC en educacion está comenzando a ofrecer productos y servicios, y una manera de entender su integración y uso, acorde con las prácticas de la mayor parte del profesorado. Eso significa que estamos asistiendo a propuestas muy poco innovadoras desde el punto de vista didáctico, que reproducen estrategias y prácticas tradicionales y conservadoras, centradas en el docente y el currículum y que desaprovechan completamente todo el potencial transformador de las TIC. Dichas prácticas, además, incrementan el grado de vigilancia y control de la "performance" los estudiantes y se alinean con la corriente más neoliberal y conservadora de la evaluación sumativa constante y supuestamente objetiva de los estudiantes. Nuevos desarrollos, como las plataformas de aprendizaje "adaptativo", que se vislumbran en un futuro a medio plazo, no solo reforzarán, en nombre de una supuesta "personalización", el aprendizaje entendido como reproducción de contenidos, sino también desprofesionalizarán a los docentes más si cabe que las tecnologías tradicionales como los libros de texto.

Along the South coast of Victoria near Inverloch, the geography turns away from the prevailing wind. The house forms a protected garden from which peripheral vision of the sea and sky is permitted by tapered facades.

The design reinforces the language of the rural context of corrugated iron and purposefulness. More broadly itʼs ambitions are to illustrate the suitability of low embodied energy local materials in contemporary architecture and that architecture be able to tell a story of place and vernacular of local craftsmanship and materials...
