Sensors are everywhere, but if we can build a generation of more efficient energy-harvesting chips, sensors could go in even more places. Here’s how researchers are trying to make that happen.

Middle School Math HD for iPad gets facelift

Middle School Math HD for iPad gets facelift | mlearn | Scoop.it

Canadian based Interactive Elementary, a company specializing in the development of educational applications for Apple's iPad, today released a significant update to its flagship software, Middle School Math HD.

 

The app, downloaded in over thirty countries since its initial release last June, provides students aged 11-14 with game-based activities to practice core mathematical concepts.

 

"We have introduced several add-ons over the last few months," explains company president Dave Brown, an Ontario teacher. "Our focus through the second half of last year was making the app more comprehensive, and we achieved that by increasing the number of games included from five to the current eight. I believe, however, this latest update is especially significant because it really harmonizes the app. We had some top notch professionals completely redesign the user interface."

 

FG Factory, a Ukranian graphic design firm, headed the redesign. They were charged with unifying the thematic elements, enhancing the app's graphics and smoothing out the user experience.

 

"Alexandr Klimenko and his team were awesome. They really brought a fresh perspective," says Brown. "This is a significant upgrade."

 

Brown explains the market for educational apps has grown at a torrid pace as schools around the globe embrace tablet technology.

 

"We continue to see the most growth in the American market, but certainly schools worldwide are seeing the potential for tablets in schools, and although we have received an excellent response from the educational technology community, sales for home use are strong as well."

 

Coordinate geometry, operations with integers, and data management are among the many concepts explored in Middle School Math HD, which the company plans to see through more upgrades in 2012.

 

"We are committed to the ongoing development of Middle School Math HD. We've got eyes on the development of Windows 8 tablets and what that could mean in education, but our iOS version will certainly lead the way for the foreseeable future. We see the tablet as the textbook of the future. We fully expect to add more modules, integrate instructional videos, and incorporate more controls for teachers to collect student data."

 

To celebrate the update, Middle School Math HD is available today on the App Store for $0.99, $3 off the regular price.

 

An iPhone version of the app is expected to be released early next week.

The Ubiquitous Computing Revolution is Here

"Ubiquitous computing is defined as a state where mobile devices, such as the iPad, cloud computing applications (such as Google Docs or Onlive) and high speed wireless networks (such as 4G or large area Wi-Fi), combine to eliminate the "computer" as the central medium for accessing digital services. With every car, camera, tablet, wristwatch, and TV screen having access to nearly unlimited computing power, prices will drop dramatically, capabilities will increase and computers will fade so thoroughly into the background that users won’t even know they are there."

30 Days with Siri

30 Days with Siri | mlearn | Scoop.it

Disclaimer: Apple has done such a good job of giving a Siri a persona that many times throughout this article I will refer to Siri as ‘her’ or ‘she’. Thanks for making me think my phone is a person, Apple.


This is the tale of a 2 hour a day commuter, 8 hour a day Fortune 500 company employee, and part time Lifehack editor living in the USA using Siri over the last 30 days. Enjoy.


It’s hard to believe that the iPhone 4S has already been out for a month. In this small amount of time we’ve seen iPhone 4S battery issues come and go, Siri outages, and data usage problems (that may not really be problems). But, just like every year, the iPhone proves to be one of the best selling smart phones of all time. It isn’t really surprising, is it?...
