High School students reinvent headphone cable for the 21st century | Paul Ridden | GizMag.com

High School students reinvent headphone cable for the 21st century | Paul Ridden | GizMag.com | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

Music lovers can waste many hours and huge sums of money searching for a pair of headphones to match a certain style or preferred sonic signature, only to have to put them to one side and start again just to join the groovy wireless in-crowd. If those premium cans are the kind where the audio cable can be unplugged, however, then the Spiro X1 will allow them to be transformed into Bluetooth ear candy.Daniel Greenberg's Spiro X1 has similar functionality to the successfully crowdfunded BTunes plug, but with a somewhat different aesthetic – one that screams out to the Beats generation. The original concept was born of late night discussions by team members at a hackathon held at the University of Pennsylvania. By the end of the PennApps event, the High School students had the makings of an idea.

Months of hard work resulted in a proof of concept in February of this year, followed by electrical and mechanical designs, and then the latest aesthetic prototype.

4 Tech Tools for Photo Documentation - Brilliant or Insane  @AngelaStockman | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
“ “When I have a camera in my hand, I pay closer attention,” she tells me. I feel the same way. I’ve written about using photos to document learning before. The process is as efficient as it is powerful, particularly for those who keep a cell phone tucked into their pockets most days. Begin by thinking about the most critical moves learners might make in a given period of time, make sure your phone is charged and easily accessible, and start shooting your data. When you’re finished, these four tools can help you curate, share, and analyze the evidence you gather. Be sure to invite company. Accessing other voices will deepen your perspective and help you develop insights you may not have otherwise. This enriches data analysis.”

“Here are some excellent iPad apps to enhance students creativity through digital storytelling. These are among the best apps teachers have been using with their students to create, narrate, and share stories. Using these apps students will be able to tell their own stories using a variety of multimedia materials that include: images, characters, avatars, photos, audio recordings, video clips and many more. The editing and creation functionalities differ from one app to the other but overall, the process is fairly simple and student friendly:”
