Paula Jamieson's curator insight, May 9, 2013 5:23 PM

I have been having 'battery' issues with my iPhone so this post was timely. I use my iphone for personally and professional use almost 24/7 and often the battery is not lasting the day (particularly when I use camera/video/email/social networking/fitness tracking apps all day eg weekends!) I don't personally agree with all of it. In my opinion, by disabling some of this features you are also 'depowering' the device. I do agree with disabling the Location Services feature on 'unnecessary' apps that you don't regularly use. I also agree with disabling  the Notifications function on many apps (I've just done this on the majority of mine so will be interested to see if it makes a difference.). As with any 'tips and tricks' type advice I'd give it a go (as long as it is on a 'surface' level and not delving into the inner workings of the device and also that you have the confidence to 'revert' things if you need to), if it makes a difference for you then it was worth it.

I wish when I was in high school I was more encouraged to learn math, science and computer science. And more girls are needed in this field.
Jenn Alevy's curator insight, May 14, 2013 11:04 PM

For some reason computer programing as a career seemed to take a back seat to other math/science/computer careers, esp.during the late 90s. Now it is time to get back to that, a million programers needed in the next 10 years is a great opportunity for many kids, I hope they do more to target more girls, not just boys.

Krysta Hammond's curator insight, May 15, 2013 10:29 AM

Great insights from some faces my students can really relate to. The video really captivated my student's attention and got them excited about learning to code and the possibilities it can lead them into. Thanks for sharing and I will pass on again!
