What motivates people to work? Most people would say money, and those people would only be partially correct. In Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, author Daniel Pink writes about radical practices implemented by Australian software company Atlassian and search engine giant Google that have taught us a lot about what really motivates human beings to work. Hint: it is not the proverbial carrot on a stick.

This looks like just the type of program a middle school librarian could love.

CS, or Computer Science First is a free Google program designed to increase student exposure to computer science education through after-school, in-school, and summer programs in a club approach run by teachers and/or community volunteers.

CS First works towards its goal of developing student courage, confidence and curiosity about computer science by providing a wealth of free training materials targeted at students grades 4 through 12. The resources may be tailored for nearly any schedule. Students learn how to build creative projects using Scratch, learn about the critical role computer science and coding play in today’s world, and explore technology-based career options.

There’s something here every kid could love as well.

Richard Platt's curator insight, March 28, 12:13 AM

As well as being lighter and much more flexible, FLCB-based batteries are also intrinsically safer. FLCB batteries do not catch fire, start to smoke or leak under almost any circumstances including physical, thermal or electrical impact. This is really good news for wearables which by their very nature will be close to the body, opening up several new applications that include today’s wearable technology in clothes, watches, jewellery, headsets and more. The FLCB batteries can be injection inserted or moulded in manufacturing processes that can reach temperatures of up to 2600 Celsius. They also don’t suffer from ‘Salting Out’ issues that plague electrolytic solutions and they can withstand cutting, piercing and even burning.


It’s also important to note that in terms of battery life, ProLogium claim their FLCB technology also provides exceptional energy density, with anywhere up to double that of standard lithium polymer batteries today, so there is no performance hit in terms of mAh figures with FLCBs. The most exciting aspect however, is the fact that an FLCB will continue to function after physical impact or even outright mutilation.


Being based on a printed circuit board, these FLCB batteries can also carry the signal and be joined to together as integral components in the device itself. This means that essentially the battery can be integrated in to the design, becoming part of the device itself, not a single and unwanted appendage that provides power.

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, March 28, 8:17 AM

Wearables needs solutions like this. Another great advancement.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, March 28, 9:31 PM

This could be the breakthrough that clothing manufacturers have been waiting for.  When your wearable technology gets dirty, just wash it and don't worry about the survivability of its power components. You now can be "wired for success."  This is totally "shocking"--pardon the pun.  Aloha, Russ.

Goodbye GPS? DARPA preparing alternative position-Tracking Technology

Goodbye GPS? DARPA preparing alternative position-Tracking Technology | EdTech | Scoop.it
DARPA considers GPS unreliable, as it isn't always available and signals can be easily jammed.

Via TechinBiz

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, March 27, 12:01 AM

DARPA is the federal agency responsible for much of the classified research carried out for the Department of Defense.  If DARPA is concerned about the integrity, availability, and security of the current GPS system, so should you.  DARPA is working on a new position-tracking technology that will be more available to users and more resistent to jamming.  Whether we realize it or not, we've been in a cyber security war for many years.  Aloha, Russ.

Luigi Cappel's curator insight, March 28, 4:43 PM

What takes this into a step change from evolution, is that's what it is, is the use of ordinary every day objects. Whether it is revolutionary or evolutionary may be something they don't share for now if it is about getting an edge on military opponents.

A key issue is the cost of technology. When I got my first in-car navigation system, the NASA designed gyros and accelerometers which gave me high accuracy put the retail price tag at around US$4,500. I didn't lay for it, part of my job was the launch of these systems in New Zealand.

Our mapping car however had a system which was also large and bulky and in the region of $200,000 and the reason was that it had to be accurate to within 15cm even when no GPS was available, because being down at the bottom of the planet, the spread of GPS signals was not designed to cover all of our country down at the bottom of the planet.

Today the use of assets or Points of Interest can be valuable, but of course there are questions about how permanent those assets are. Systems like iBeacons make a lot of sense. After all it worked for Hansel and Gretel. Passive RF devices can be placed pretty much anywhere, they can be dropped on or into dirt, placed on buildings and can provide breadcrumbs anywhere. As long as you have the technology to know where they were placed, they can work for a long time because some of those technologies only consume power of significance when they are activated.

When they talk about TV, I wonder if that is designed to put us off the scent or whether they are talking about Internet connected or smart TV's because they, being effectively WiFi access points therefore are transmitting a unique signature.

Google got itself into hot water by tracking WiFi signals from people's home WiFi transmitters which also have a unique signature and aren't likely to move very often, therefore if DARPA uses technology to map the location of those access points (they don't need to spy on what is being communicated across them, all they need is a unique identity of a fixed router, whether it is in an office, a public device on a street or in a home. Triangulate those unique mapped signatures in an urban area  and you will have pretty good accuracy. Telco's have been doing this and improving on it for years. It's much cheaper for them than GPS, which requires either legislation or informed permission from consumers, which is typically only given for the purposes of the apps they are using. Then there is GPS assisted tracking which is probably what DARPA are using. It doesn't replace GPS altogether because there are inherent safety elements to GPS and typically other technologies, such as those we used in our mapping cars were still based on starting each day with a highly accurate GPS fix. From there we could function without it for long periods of time. More satellites are going up and jamming them or using EMP bombs on a satellite is likely to be more difficult.

The consumer will ultimately benefit from these technologies if we are serious about driverless cars. Cars that navigate themselves without a human sanity check solely based on GPS will fail, even in urban canyons where the signals bounce of he glass and metal foundations on urban buildings. Have you ever sat at a red light in a city and had your nav act as though you were still moving and instinctively pressed a bit harder on the brake pedal?

The basic idea outlined by http://www.businessnewsdaily.com is to determine the social medium where most of your clients, customers, and associates assemble.  You can't be on several sites at once without spreading yourself too thin.  When I was working in commercial broadcasting, I found LinkedIn very helpful in maintaining ties with others in my field.  LinkedIn has proven very useful in my new role as a substitute teacher, linking me up with other teachers facing the same challenges I do.  I use Facebook to maintain contact with my local friends, who may not share my professional interests.  I can manage two social sites fairly well.  I found Facebook and LinkedIn most applicable to my professional and social needs.  Your mileage may vary.  Aloha, Russ.

Allen Cole's curator insight, April 7, 1:45 AM

I have found that even though all these social media platforms are superb to be on, what matters mostly is how to well you utilise them to reach out to your clients.

 

Start out by identifying which social media platform your clients/prospects are using then reach out on the same without wasting time on where they are not.
