Voice Recognition Software Finally Beats Humans At Typing, Study Finds

Voice Recognition Software Finally Beats Humans At Typing, Study Finds | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

"Computers have already beaten us at chess, Jeopardy and Go, the ancient board game from Asia. And now, in the raging war with machines, human beings have lost yet another battle — over typing.

Turns out voice recognition software has improved to the point where it is significantly faster and more accurate at producing text on a mobile device than we are at typing on its keyboard. That's according to a new study by Stanford University, the University of Washington and Baidu, the Chinese Internet giant. The study ran tests in English and Mandarin Chinese."

appear.in :: Alternative to Google Hangouts | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

Description by TechBoomers

 

"Appear.in is one of the simplest Google Hangouts alternatives, as you don't have to sign up for an account, and you don't have to download or install a program.  Basically, you just go to the website, and pick a name for your chat room.  Once you're inside, just copy the web address and send it to up to 8 other people whom you want to talk to (over email, phone, text message, etc.).  When they enter the address into their Internet browser, they'll join the chat.  Then, you can talk to each other on video, exchange text messages (including Internet links), and even lock the chat room if you don't want anyone else joining the session.  Appear.in also has an app for mobile devices."

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive | Ict4champions | 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

8 digital skills we must teach our children | #DQ #DigitalQuotient #EQ #EmotionalQuotient

8 digital skills we must teach our children | #DQ #DigitalQuotient #EQ #EmotionalQuotient | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
The digital world is a vast expanse of learning and entertainment. But it is in this digital world that kids are also exposed to many risks, such as cyberbullying, technology addiction, obscene and violent content, radicalization, scams and data theft. The problem lies in the fast and ever evolving nature of the digital world, where proper internet governance and policies for child protection are slow to catch up, rendering them ineffective.

Moreover, there is the digital age gap. The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

So how can we, as parents, educators and leaders, prepare our children for the digital age? Without a doubt, it is critical for us to equip them with digital intelligence.

25 Real Ways Minecraft is Being Used in the Classroom

25 Real Ways Minecraft is Being Used in the Classroom | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
It’s hard to believe that just six years ago Minecraft was virtually unheard of. It was little more than a hobby project for creator and designer Markus Persson. Fast forward to 2016 and Minecraft has completely changed the way we perceive videogames.

Starting as a novelty in a handful of innovative classrooms, Minecraft is now a foundation of curriculums around the world. From math to art to geography and even quantum mechanics, Minecraft and imaginative educators are turning bland subjects into incredible immersive learning experiences.

Need an LMS next year? Here are three to consider

Need an LMS next year? Here are three to consider | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
An LMS — Learning Management System — is a digital tool that tracks a wide variety of student-teacher interactions such as homework, grading, sharing of resources, parent communication, assessments, and more. It allows teachers to create, distribute and track class materials anywhere, on any device. That means it’s accessible from school or home, with any platform (including Macs, PCs, Chromebooks, and tablets). The term ‘LMS’ is often conflated with ‘SMS’ (student management system) and ‘CMS’ (course management system) because their purposes and tools are so similar. In this article, we’ll treat all as LMSs.

This Unusual Japanese Technique Will Radically Improve Your Presentations

This Unusual Japanese Technique Will Radically Improve Your Presentations | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
Most presenters fall short when it comes to engaging audiences while driving home their point. Too many slides, the wrong kinds of slides, rambling, lack of an objective and a weak argument are just a few of the presentation sins most speakers commit.

PechaKucha, a weird Japanese presentation technique devised by Tokyo architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham can help. They came up with the idea because “Architects talk too much! Give a microphone and some images to an architect — or most creative people for that matter — and they’ll go on forever! Give PowerPoint to anyone else and they have the same problem.” PechaKucha’s basic message is a piece of advice I’ve been giving to presenters for years: the less you say the more valuable your presentation becomes.

PechaKucha (Japanese for “chit chat”) forces you to speak more concisely, precisely and clearly by allowing just 20 slides. Yup, 20 slides. Oh, and you only get 20 seconds to present each slide. An auto forward control ensures there’s no request for “next slide” or “please go back.” Also called a 20×20 presentation, PechaKucha gives you just 6 minutes and 40 seconds to deliver your presentation. Every second is precious which means you can radically tighten-up your presentation skills or fail. It’s high pressure, but it’s also a great learning ground.

Interactive 3D Content from Lifeliqe: 1,000 Augmented Reality Models - Class Tech Tips

Interactive 3D Content from Lifeliqe: 1,000 Augmented Reality Models - Class Tech Tips | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
Have you used virtual reality in your classroom? Well if you’re ready to take it to the next level you’ll want to check out the interactive 3D content from Lifeliqe. Teachers can use augmented reality with Lifeliqe – every single one of their 1,000 models has an AR view, where you can either capture the model in the environment, or swap the camera and take a selfie or interact with the model yourself. With this tool, teachers can now integrate three-dimensional models in a digital format instead of the two-dimensional images students are used to seeing in traditional textbooks.

I’m a big fan of augmented reality and virtual reality so it’s been especially exciting to see all of the innovation in this space over the past year. Teachers who use Lifeliqe can drag and drop the interactive models right into a presentation, ebook or lesson plan. It’s a great option for educators looking to create engaging, interactive 3D experiences for their students.

Periodic table of iPad apps vol 2 - @ICTEvangelist -  Mark Anderson

Periodic table of iPad apps vol 2 - @ICTEvangelist -  Mark Anderson | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
First things first. It’s never just about the apps. End of. That said being guided around tried and tested apps from the classroom can be really helpful. With that in mind, back in 2014 I created my first periodic table of iPad apps. Little did I realise how popular it would be with more than 7 million downloads in those two years. As with most things to do with technology, times move on and apps change, new technologies bring new ways to use technology to enhance learning. What has been interesting in the process of creating the periodic table has been looking at the apps which still work really well at doing what they do best. Interestingly, many of the apps on this updated table were on the original table too but there are plenty of new ones to look at too. Overwhelmingly, the majority of apps shown are free too.
