21st Century Technology Skills Are a Core Competency for Today’s Graduates

21st Century Technology Skills Are a Core Competency for Today’s Graduates | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it

Our students need to be comfortable with the information technologies that are inextricably linked to the 21st century skills the work place requires, and teachers need to help pave the way.

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

Tata Communications bets big on Internet of Things in utilities, healthcare | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
Read more about Tata Communications bets big on Internet of Things in utilities, healthcare on Business Standard. IoT devices don't require high bandwidth but absolute intolerance to network outages
Richard Platt's insight:
The company is also keen on partnering with security, maintenance and audit solutions teams with the core enterprise security remaining under its control. HP Enterprise will continue to extend cloud support. While the core research has come from partners, Semtech and Tata communications place itself as an enabler.  Currently, the company is looking at network and device based revenue models that will not vary with volume. Value-addition to services in the form of certifications and security will be the revenue generators, in addition to the full stack of services from network, device, a platform to application and analytics.

Price-cutting private jet shakes up aircraft market

Richard Platt's insight:

An aircraft maker, Cirrus Aircraft, is marketing the Vision SF50 as a plane that dramatically cuts the cost of buying a jet. It comes in with a $2 million pricetag that is billed as substantially less than that of its closest jet-powered competitor, though it's still more expensive than most piston planes.  The Vision Jet competes in the industry's Very Light Jet, or VLJ, category, which  includes  models like the Eclipse Canada, Cessna Citation M2 and Embraer Phenom 100. These jets generally don't require a professional pilot or a co-pilot and are targeted toward owners who will fly the plane themselves. With a maximum range of approximately 1,300 miles, the Vision Jet is meant for regional travel.

Some iPhones may face US ban in Apple-Qualcomm legal tussle

But any possible ban -- which could cover the iPhone 7, 7 Plus and maybe even future iPhones -- probably wouldn't happen for at least 18 months.
Richard Platt's insight:

If Qualcomm wins its latest legal battle against Apple, it could be a lot harder to buy certain iPhones in the US.  The company plans to file a complaint with the US International Trade Commission, accusing Apple's iPhones of infringing six of Qualcomm's mobile patents.  As part of the filing, Qualcomm wants the ITC to ban the import of certain iPhones that don't use Qualcomm chips, as well as ban Apple from selling devices it has already brought into the US.

The new bill, however, aims to deliver state rebates to EV customers at dealerships at the time of purchase. It would also seek to increase the number of charging stations across the state, establish car-sharing programs for low-income communities, and provide incentives for buying used electric vehicles.

For the Internet of Things to Thrive, Net Neutrality Needs to Survive

For the Internet of Things to Thrive, Net Neutrality Needs to Survive | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
If IoT trends have taught us anything, it’s that open protocols, standards, and programming language lead to faster and better results. The same methodology sho
Richard Platt's insight:

“Wireless carriers have been trying to snatch back that 5.9 GHz spectrum to use it for other purposes that they can make money on, and if that happens, it will be a real problem for automated vehicles,” said Sam Abuelsamid, senior analyst at Navigant Research, in the article by The Verge. Comcast claims it’s referring to LTE-Vehicular communications and not DSRC, even though LTE-Vehicular has no practical applications to date.  The problem of net neutrality comes into play when discussing cloud services and remote access. More companies are realizing that the massive amounts of data collected from sensors and IoT systems need to be analyzed, and the internal computing services are not enough. Cloud analytics is becoming an important component of the IoT landscape. Remote access is also a major benefit of IoT connected services. Users that can access data remotely, schedule production services, or provide remote control maintenance are one of the highlights of the IoT world.   These benefits would be hampered by eliminating net neutrality. If a company had to pay more to gain higher bandwidth capacity to their data, then only the big-name companies would be able to compete without restrictions. Middle- to small-level companies would struggle to successfully run their IoT systems because they would not be able to afford faster internet access. We should fight for net neutrality so that the IoT industry can be accessible for all and continue to grow in all areas—not just in the companies that can afford it.

Comcast to launch 'internet of things' network in Denver, 11 other cities

Comcast to launch 'internet of things' network in Denver, 11 other cities | Internet of Things - Company and Research Focus | Scoop.it
The cable giant choses 12 more cities for a dedicate wireless network it hopes will attract IoT customers.
Richard Platt's insight:

Since last year, Comcast has been testing low-powered wireless IoT network technology on open radio frequencies for scientific and industrial uses as a way to connect things like pipeline-monitoring sensors, wireless utility and parking meters and other purposes. The company started trials in San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia.  One of its customers is a pest-control company betting that smart animal traps that chirp out when they’ve caught something will save the business a lot of money compared to paying people to check on hundreds of empty traps, Khorram said.  -  At a recent Philadelphia hackathon put on machineQ, a team hatched the idea of putting sensors on shock absorbers of thousands of city vehicles that would send out signals when they hit large potholes, automating the crowd sourcing and prioritizing of pothole repairs for the city.   Another team worked on the idea of using passive sensors in the homes of elderly or sick people that would watch for temperature changes that suggest a person there requires medical help but is unable to call for themselves.

Richard Platt's insight:

Fresco is a lot like Uber, but for TV stations. Unlike similar apps where you request a car, takeout, or a even a dog walker, Fresco puts a call out for a photojournalist. A newsroom posts a request for video of, say, a crime scene, and a Fresco user in the area can accept, take a video of it, and upload it to Fresco. If the news outlet uses it, the Fresco user gets paid $50.  TV news stations across the country are using the app, but Fresco is particularly appealing to KTBY, a station in Anchorage, Alaska. Alaska is a big state, and many of KTBY’s viewers live in remote villages that are hours away by plane. It’s hard to cover those communities without spending a ton of money and time. In a Fresco promotional video, Scott Centers, COO of Coastal Television Broadcasting Company, which owns KTBY, marvels that Fresco offers an affordable alternative.  “So if you take a reporter’s salary and then you add in the cost of vehicles, using Fresco we were able to cut that cost. And so what was once a $3,000 average cost, now comes down to less than $200,” he said.  But outsourcing news gathering to amateurs also comes with a cost. Fresco’s users are largely not trained in news gathering or journalistic ethics. VICE News spoke to multiple Fresco users, one of whom said she was hesitant when KTBY asked her to interview a politician about public policy.
