How digital & social media are changing the way movies are marketed | Ideas Matter | Scoop.it
The internet and digital media have been accused of contributing to the slow demise of the movie industry, however it’s also a fact that digital has enabled filmmakers on a budget to attract a wider audience than was possible in the analogue age.

MIT: 10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013 you should know about

MIT: 10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013 you should know about | Ideas Matter | Scoop.it

MIT's definition of a breakthrough is simple: an advance that gives people powerful new ways to use technology. It could be an intuitive design that provides a useful interface (e.g., “Smart Watches”) or experimental devices that could allow people who have suffered brain damage to once again form memories (“Memory Implants”). Some could be key to sustainable economic growth (“Additive Manufacturing” and “Supergrids”), while others could change how we communicate (“Temporary Social Media”) or think about the unborn (“Prenatal DNA Sequencing”). Some are brilliant feats of engineering (“Baxter”), whereas others stem from attempts to rethink longstanding problems in their fields (“Deep Learning” and “Ultra-Efficient Solar Power”). As a whole, this annual list not only tells you which technologies you need to know about, but also celebrates the creativity that produced them.

NYC: Success Academy parent's secret tapes reveal attempt to push out special needs student | NY Daily News

NYC: Success Academy parent's secret tapes reveal attempt to push out special needs student | NY Daily News | Ideas Matter | Scoop.it
Call them the charter school tapes. The parent of a special education kindergarten pupil at the Upper West Side Success Academy charter school secretly tape recorded meetings in which school administrators pressed her to transfer her son back into the public school system. The tapes, a copy of which the mother supplied the Daily News, poke a hole in claims by the fast-growing Success Academy chain founded by former City Councilwoman Eva Moskowitz that it doesn’t try to push out students with special needs or behavior problems. Nancy Zapata said she resorted to the secret tapes last December and again in March after school officials used their “zero tolerance” discipline policy to repeatedly suspend her son, Yael, kept telephoning her at work to pick him up from school in the middle of the day and urged her to transfer him. The News reported earlier this week that the Success network, which boasts some of the highest test scores in the city, also has far higher suspension rates than other elementary schools and that more than two dozen parents were claiming efforts to push their children out.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, August 29, 2013 6:38 PM

For most people, creating goals is easy! The execution and application is the struggle. As Diana Scharf Hunt says, “Goals are just dreams with a deadline!” Everyone has dreams, but successful people turn them into goals that they accomplish. In order to ensure you reach the finish line with your goals achieved, here are 10 steps to help you move from dreamer to doer.


So what are you aiming for? If your answer is nothing, then you probably won’t like what you get out of this life. Instead of simply drifting along reacting to what life brings you, take proactive steps to go out and create the future you want. While we can’t control everything that happens to us, we can control ourselves by following goals that bring out our passion for life.

VA: Governor McDonnell Cuts Ribbon at XLR8 STEM Academy | Region 2000 Technology Council | Ideas Matter | Scoop.it
Governor Bob McDonnell visited Central Virginia Community College today to watch a 2009 campaign promise come to fruition. The governor attended the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for XLR8 STEM Academy, Virginia’s 16th STEM academy. With the school’s opening, the number of STEM academies in the Commonwealth has now doubled from January 2010, fulfilling a promise made by then-candidate Bob McDonnell while on the trail four years ago. XLR8 will launch this coming academic year on the campus of Central Virginia Community College in the AREVA Technology Center, which will provide students with access to lab equipment and classroom space. XLR8 has been a joint effort by the Region 2000 Technology Council, Future Focus Foundation and Workforce Investment Board; Central Virginia Community College; the school divisions of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Campbell and Lynchburg; and area business partners, including AMTI, AREVA, The Babcock and Wilcox Company, Centra, Delta Star and Wells Fargo. XLR8 compliments current regional K-12 STEM activities and workforce development initiatives. The goal of this institution is to help close the gap between education and industry and further the economic vitality of this region. The STEM Academy curriculum will offer students an opportunity to learn in an innovative, engaging classroom where students will develop critical thinking skills through hands-on, project-based learning. STEM Academy students will receive dual enrollment credits for all courses; allowing them the option to work toward a college degree. Additionally, the STEM Academy will offer transfer possibilities through articulation agreements with local colleges and universities for students wishing to continue their education. STEM Academy students will also be able to earn industry certifications, allowing for job readiness upon program completion. Click headline to read more--

6 Ways to Save with Virtualization in Your Small Business

6 Ways to Save with Virtualization in Your Small Business | Ideas Matter | Scoop.it

Virtualization offers many benefits for small businesses, including cost savings and IT efficiency. And options such as Oracle’s VirtualBox and VMware Workstation have put the technology within reach of small business budgets. Here are some suggestions for how you can leverage the power of virtualization in your small business:
- Replace an old or unsupported machine.
- Create a system backup: A VM backup can help your business quickly get up to speed after a catastrophic hardware failure.
- Provide internal services: Virtualization makes it easy for businesses to setup an environment without having to purchase new hardware.
- Support Mobility: Set up a VM to serve as the Remote Desktop.
- Enhance security: Limit Web browsing activities to a virtual environment that has no access to sensitive files.
- Distribute apps without having to install them: Great way to ensure that your software demo will not fail due to missing drivers and code libraries.

9 Apps for Creating Multimedia Content

9 Apps for Creating Multimedia Content | Ideas Matter | Scoop.it

Until a few years ago designing an attractive presentation, or any other form of multimedia content, required expert designers. You first had to explain your idea to the designer who would then spend hours in isolation, using complex tools and software, to turn them into reality. Most of the times, however, you would still go away dissatisfied with the final product.

 

However, this is no more the case thanks to different online tools available freely on the internet. Using these tools,you can create multimedia content in a matter of minutes. You no longer need to explain your brains out to a designer who would still prefer following his own ideas. There’s also no need for any complex applications and prior designing knowledge.
