A Must-Have Online Safety Guide For Students - Edudemic

A Must-Have Online Safety Guide For Students - Edudemic | Bookmarked Web Links with ENSC Knight-Time Tech | Scoop.it

Students often overshare personal information through social media sites. Hackers can use that to impersonate banks and other legitimate institutions to gain login information and personal details. Limit using specifics on any social media sites. Try not to ever use your full address, social security number or date of birth.

Augmented Light Bulb Turns a Desk Into a Touch Screen | Bookmarked Web Links with ENSC Knight-Time Tech | Scoop.it

Powerful computers are becoming small and cheap enough to cram into all sorts of everyday objects. Natan Linder, a student at MIT’s Media Lab, thinks that fitting one inside a light bulb socket, together with a camera and projector, could provide a revolutionary new kind of interface—by turning any table or desk into a simple touch screen.

Amy Keathley's curator insight, February 16, 2014 9:41 PM

This is definitely the direction we need to go - many students have such a hard time connect the math they learn in class to the real world and this is a step in the right direction!
