GIS is not just for geography classes; spatial thinking and spatial data management can help students learn a variety of subjects including history.  This free ebook will help history teachers to see how to unlock the power of Geographic Information Systems.

Education and the Digital Economy: Strategies that lead to success

Education and the Digital Economy: Strategies that lead to success | BeBetter | Scoop.it
The digital economy has been described as the economic activity that materializes due to billions of online connections each day among people, companies, data, and devices.

While it may seem natural to focus on the business implications of the digital economy, it will also have a profound impact on education. So if you happen to be an undergraduate, graduate, or MBA student, you owe it to yourself to understand not only the digital economy, but also how your education will prepare you to make the most of the opportunities that present themselves.

One thing’s for certain. When it comes to education and the digital economy, your odds of success will largely depend on the information and communications technology (ICT) skills you develop during your academic career, both as part of the curriculum and as part of your own initiative to pick up necessary skills, because you’ll fall behind if you’re found lacking.

Mindfulness doesn't have to take place in the mountains of Nepal or a weekend retreat under a vow of silence. The beauty of the technique is that it's so simple you can do it anywhere and just about anytime.

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, May 13, 8:06 AM

#Mindfulness is mainly about where your #focus is and how you use your #brain. This process has the ability to completely restructure your brain.

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD | BeBetter | Scoop.it

A lot of people are looking for methods for SSD data recovery, but most of them failed finding one. Now, we’ll work this out. 


SSD is the acronym of Solid State Disk, also known as Solid State Drive. Despite that the first solid state disk drive was developed by Storage Tek in 1970, it was not until the year of 1989 that we finally witness the birth of the first solid state disk in the world. 


 After about 20 years of development, the manufacturing technology has become gradually mature and the SSD has been applied to all walks of life. Though SSD has a high cost, it is gradually spread to the DIY market. More and more computer users choose to replace their old hard drive, which is relatively small in capacity, with a new SSD, whose capacity is relatively large.


SSD (Solid State Drive) is a kind of hard drive which is made by solid state electronic memory chip array. And it consists of control unit and storage unit (FLASH chip and DRAM chip). SSD is exactly the same with common hard drive in the specification and definition of interface, function, usage and product shape and size. The most obvious difference between SSD and the old fashioned hard drive lies in hard drive technology.

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive | BeBetter | Scoop.it
If your external hard drive keeps asking you to format it after you have tried all kinds of solutions, you can download free MiniTool Power Data Recovery which is an excellent program that brings file recovery to Windows to have a try. Follow these steps to carry out data recovery process from not formatted external hard drive:  

Step 1. Launch MiniTool Power Data Recovery, and then select "Damaged Partition Recovery". You can see this module is specially designed for recovering data from damaged, RAW, or formatted partition when moving mouse over it. So it is most suitable for not formatted hard drive data recovery. 

Step 2. Then select the external hard drive to have a full scan (We take a 16 GB Kinston flash drive for example here). The scanning time depends on the capacity of your data in it. 

Step 3. When the scanning is finished, Power Data Recovery will show you the files it has found in the hard drive in tree structure. Tick the files and click "Preview" to check whether the files are the right ones. Note: you can press "Filter" button to choose specific file types to be shown in the middle pane. 

Step 4. In this step you are expected to click "Save" and then choose a safe location (usually it is another hard drive) to store all data you have selected. After that, wait for the success.  https://www.powerdatarecovery.com/hard-drive-recovery/external-hard-drive-needs-formatting.html

Jen is the wife of Ivan Owen, who co-created the first 3D printed hand for a child in South Africa and released the files open source so that anyone, anywhere in the world could take those files and print a hand for themselves or someone in need. She has been a volunteer and participant in the field of open-source, 3D printed prosthetic hands for the past 4 years. Along the way, she has sought to highlight and document stories from the e-NABLE Community of volunteers on the topic of low-cost prosthetics from around the world, as well as to create an information resource for people interested in learning more about the history, design & fabrication of these devices.”
