The growing headache of protecting mobile devices

The growing headache of protecting mobile devices | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) schemes have become increasingly prevalent in most businesses worldwide, as employees look to use their own personal devices in a business context. When asked if employees valued certain devices over others, 89 per cent of those surveyed claimed this was the case.

 

“Rather than fight against the tide, organizations should embrace the use of these devices and work alongside staff to ensure that comprehensive IT policies and best practice guidelines are put in place to assist and inform employees about how their devices should be used. End-point protection for these devices is also crucial if businesses want to safeguard employees against an ever-changing, increasingly sophisticated threat landscape.”

The evolution of the web

Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web.

 

The Evolution of the Web
The web today is a growing universe of interlinked web pages and web apps, teeming with videos, photos, and interactive content. What the average user doesn't see is the interplay of web technologies and browsers that makes all this possible.


Over time web technologies have evolved to give web developers the ability to create new generations of useful and immersive web experiences. Today's web is a result of the ongoing efforts of an open web community that helps define these web technologies, like HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL and ensure that they're supported in all web browsers.


The color bands in this visualization represent the interaction between web technologies and browsers, which brings to life the many powerful web apps that we use daily.

5 Great Free iPad Translation apps

5 Great Free iPad Translation apps | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Using iPad for reading is something we all enjoy doing; but what about when reading articles in a foreign language ? It is highly probably that you will come across vocabulary you don't know. Of course you might guess the meaning of words from the context in which they are used but this can never replace a clear and definite explanation of a dictionary.

 

To help you find translations of the new words you come across, I compiled a list of some of the best free iPad translator apps. Check them out :

When Students Are Inspired, They and Their Teachers Are Happier

When Students Are Inspired, They and Their Teachers Are Happier | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Happiness interview: Andrew Mangino. By Gretchen Rubin...

 

How can we usher in a new era of happiness (and inspiration) in America's schools?


I had to include this question because it's the one I think about every day!

 

Our team at The Future Project believes that just as there is an achievement gap, there is also an inspiration deficit in our schools. When students (and teachers, administrators, custodians, coaches, and parents) are not inspired, they are not happy -- at least not as happy as they could be! Nor do they learn well; reform, we believe, must be built on a foundation of inspiration. So, we're aiming to bring about the world in which all students have found something that inspires and truly excites them, whether civil engineering, French food, botany, or the Roaring Twenties, and channeled it to improve the world around them. All before finishing high school!

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, July 5, 2012 4:51 AM
1. Explain. Some recent research shows that many students do poorly on assignments or in participation because they do not understand what to do or why they should do it. Teachers should spend more time explaining why we teach what we do, and why the topic or approach or activity is important and interesting and worthwhile.
2. Reward. Students who do not yet have powerful intrinsic motivation to learn can be helped by extrinsic motivators in the form of rewards. Rather than criticizing unwanted behaviour or answers, reward correct behaviour and answers.
3. Care. Students respond with interest and motivation to teachers who appear to be human and caring.
4. Have students participate. One of the major keys to motivation is the active involvement of students in their own learning.
5. Teach Inductively.
6. Satisfy students' needs. Attending to need satisfaction is a primary method of keeping students interested and happy.
7. Make learning visual. Use drawings, diagrams, pictures, charts, graphs, bulleted lists, even three-dimensional objects you can bring to class to help students anchor the idea to an image.
8. Use positive emotions to enhance learning and motivation. Strong and lasting memory is connected with the emotional state and experience of the learner.
