Why your wallpapers look messed up on iOS 7, and how to fix them!

Why your wallpapers look messed up on iOS 7, and how to fix them! | Daring Gadgets, QR Codes, Apps, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it
One of the things that's annoyed me most about iOS 7 is the way it handles wallpapers. iOS 7 only seems to want to position a background image one way, and no matter how hard you try, no matter how much you pinch or zoom, iOS 7 just snaps you wallpaper back in and, in some cases, makes it look ridiculous. So, I did some digging, and figured out why iOS 7 is messing up our wallpapers,...

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class | Daring Gadgets, QR Codes, Apps, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it

Phones, tablets, iPads and e-readers… What do these mobile devices have in common? It’s probably a pretty safe bet to say that most students own at least one of them in this day and age. So, instead of continually confiscating these items or telling students to put them away, why not take advantage of the handheld gadget craze and leverage these tools for learning?


Allowing students to utilize their own devices provides them with access to a variety of digital activities, essentially creating a 1:1 environment with a tool they already know how to use.


Furthermore, with many schools experiencing limited budgets, the BYOD concept is one that should be seriously considered. Without devices to complement learning, students are missing out on a modernized education as well as the development of important life skills. Yeah, that means actually having the know how to use technology beyond gaming and social media!

I recall the concept of the Babel Fish introduced by Douglas Adams in the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Universe.  Stick the fish in your ear and it became a intergalactic translator.  


Skype is a far cry from the Babel Fish, but it does promise to increase communication between people (at least for those in range of an Internet connection.

la necesidad de hablar diversos idiomas para poder vivir en una sociedad global ha generado el desarrollo de traductores en tiempo real que prácticamente eliminan, sino reducen, la necesidad de ir a una academia o instituto a aprenderlos. El traductor de Skype es un ejemplo claro de ello.
