Firefox OS Peak – First Impressions (Part 1) « EclipseSource Blog

Firefox OS Peak – First Impressions (Part 1) « EclipseSource Blog | Dorai on Emerging Trends - Drivers, Barriers, Impact | Scoop.it
Dorai Thodla's insight:

"On April 23rd, the Firefox OS developer preview phones became available in Europe – and were sold out in a few hours. The demand was so overwhelming that the suppliergeeksphone had to shut down their online shop completely for a week. Now they are back online and have been busy delivering the phones – our’s arrived on Friday.

 

I will share my experience with the phone in a couple of blog entries, from first impressions to user experience topics, to tryingEclipse RAP and various mobile frameworks on the peak phone. Obviously I am also interested if Firefox OS should be a target for our Tabris framework. However, that will have to wait, lets get started with the first impressions"

To Be An Effective Curator You Need To Be an Information DJ

To Be An Effective Curator You Need To Be an Information DJ | Dorai on Emerging Trends - Drivers, Barriers, Impact | Scoop.it


Robin Good: In analyzing what is going on in the brain when a potentially viral idea is intercepted, Matthew Lieberman (who designed the study with Emily Falk at UCLA) discovered something that confirms how important it is that an effective curator be "in tune" with his own audience. 

 

Great curation is not just about "spinning" the newest and coolest, but to precisely cater to the specific audience interests, expectations and preferences.

 

Interesting, fascinating story. Truthful. Insightful. 8/10

SmartBoard, Make Way for Educreations

SmartBoard, Make Way for Educreations | Dorai on Emerging Trends - Drivers, Barriers, Impact | Scoop.it

Julia Hum/Educreations: One of the biggest, fastest shifts in ed tech the last couple years has been the evolution from the use of large interactive whiteboards to the use of mobile, agile multi-purpose apps.

Currently, there are at least six products, all competing to become teachers’ favorite. Replay Note, ScreenChomp, ShowMe, DoodleCast Pro, Knowmia, Explain Everything and Educreations all offer teachers the ability to record the visual and audio components of a “whiteboard” lesson on their iPads, and share it online.
