Connected Learning Alliance Launches Free Virtual Minecraft Camp at Pursuitery.com | VizWorld.com | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
Research shows that video games like Minecraft can improve math, coding, reasoning and other academic skills, and Minecraft summer camps can cost thousands of dollars. But, such camps exclude kids who can’t afford them. “All kids should have equal access to 21st century skills, such as coding and game development, and playing Minecraft is a fun way to learn those skills.” So, the Connected Learning Alliance (CLA) is offering a virtual Minecraft camp, for free, at Pursuitery.com. The camp starts July 14 and runs through Aug. 10, but campers can sign up anytime during the four-week session. CLA is a network that brings together organizations, projects, initiatives and individuals working to leverage today’s technology for more equitable access to learning and opportunity for all young people. “We are offering this camp for free because we believe in equity in education,” said Tara Tiger Brown, CLA’s technical director and co-founder of LA Makerspace. “All kids should have equal access

Small-business Q&A: Manage cash flow, or pay the price

Small-business Q&A: Manage cash flow, or pay the price | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
When they don't make regular checks and forecasts, or ignore troubling trends, their businesses will break down because they don't have the resources to pay their bills. To boost inflows, consider asking customers for all or a substantial portion of their payment upfront or give discounts to those who pay promptly. Other tactics for keeping cash in the business include maintaining low inventories, leasing certain kinds of equipment instead of buying them outright, recycling and reusing supplies where possible, and evaluating your processes and procedures to make sure they're as efficient and cost-effective as possible Identifying these patterns also will help you project anticipated revenues and expenses months in advance, so you'll know when inflows and outflows are more likely to go out of balance, and can prepare accordingly.

New app Sight streamlines reading and mobile productivity process using radical smart image technologiesVizWorld.com | VizWorld.com | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
Sight, a revolutionary, image centered productivity app for iOS, is now available in the App Store. Developed by startup, Landscape Mobile, the company has also just closed a seed funding round of $1.85 million from IDG Capital. Sight simplifies the reading and mobile productivity process using images as the input to unlock related content across the mobile web. The app allows users to more efficiently manage, organize and discover information. Quoting from their website, here's the approach to discovery/finding and searching behind Sight: With the idea that “photo is the new media”, came a more advanced idea: “photo is the new user-friendly URL”. A picture contains a lot of information, with smart technologies that separates the important information from the noises, and with accumulated data on the larger mobile internet, pictures can be used smartly to bring out more knowledge.
