“ As a teacher wouldn’t it be handy to be in more than one place at a time? I’d like to give you some ways of recording yourself and getting that audio or video online. Once online, it’s a matter of copying and pasting to generate a QR code. A QR code is a quick way to get students to online content. Easily providing recordings to your students means you can reteach concepts, differentiate instruction, give directions at centers, communicate with parents, and be heard and/or seen anytime and any place. ”

“Prior to the world record attempt a WCA-conform modified speed cube was scrambled with a computer generated random array and positioned in the robot. Once the start button was hit two webcam shutters were moved away. Thereafter a laptop took two pictures, each picture showing three sides of the cube. Then the laptop identified all colors of the cube and calculated a solution with Tomas Rokicki's extremely fast implementation of Herbert Kociemba's Two-Phase-Algorithm. The solution was handed over to an Arduino-compatible microcontroller board that orchestrated the 20 moves of six high performance steppers. Only 887 milliseconds after the start button had been hit Sub1 broke a historic barrier and finished the last move in new world record time.Needing several hundreds of working hours to construct, build, program and tune Sub1, it is the first robot that can independently inspect and solve a Rubik's Cube in under 1 second. The world record has been approved by Guinness World Records on 18-Feb-2016.”

Most educators agree that basic application and internet skills (typing, word processing, spreadsheets, web literacy and safety, etc.) are fundamental, and thus, “digital literacy” is a part of K12 curriculum. But is coding now a fundamental literacy, like reading or writing, that all K12 students need to learn as well? In order to gain a deeper understanding of the devices and applications they use everyday, it’s important for all students to try coding. In doing so, this also has the positive effect of inspiring more potential future programmers. Furthermore, there are a set of relevant skills, often consolidated as “computational thinking”, that are becoming more important for all students, given the growth in the use of computers, algorithms and data in many fields.
Personal emergency response system (PERS) maker QMedic has won $2.2 million from the National Cancer Institute “to create next-generation passive sensing and self-report tools to enhance clinical interventions for at-risk patients.”
“ Browser based presentation platforms are quickly gaining ground as HTML5 has made it possible to create robust presentations online without the need for applications like PowerPoint or Keynote.”

“Make education fun again! Quizdini is an easy Web 2.0 tool that helps teachers teach and students learn. Create engaging multiple-choice quizzes (though we prefer to think of them as games) where you control the content, and let your students learn at their own pace! Great educational learning tool for tablets, laptops, or even – gasp – regular desktop computers! Quizdini also works great on interactive whiteboards for teachers that want to lead a large group review!'”

This week MedCity News shared an article about patient engagement that posits, "Patients today aren’t truly engaged with health technology or even with their own health." The article, written by Laura Wagner and originally appearing in VentureBeat, is a commentary based on a session from HealthBeat 2013, a VentureBeat presented conference.
