All good sense and relevant to language teaching with the IWB.  I'd only quibble with #7: if you want the students to work collaboratively, don't turn it on.  Students can work collaboratively at the IWB, without teacher supervision, and while other learners are involved in different activities.

Apple has sparked rumours that they are investing in 4K display screens after accidentally listing a 4K monitor for sale online.

The company briefly posted a Sharp 4K monitor for sale on its European online stores, then later removed it.

At 32 inches, the IGZO screen has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.

It was listed at £3,499, and was then removed on Sunday evening.

Heads up, y'all! This is another way we're going to be lured into owning the latest & greatest. I'm guessing this is going to enhance the screen view for a clearer picture, too.

not surprising, but still...

 

"Games “are built and operated by companies looking to make money, so the players’ identity and activity is tracked,” said Peter W. Singer of the Brookings Institution, an author of “Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know.” “For terror groups looking to keep their communications secret, there are far more effective and easier ways to do so than putting on a troll avatar.”

The surveillance, which also included Microsoft’s Xbox Live, could raise privacy concerns. It is not clear exactly how the agencies got access to gamers’ data or communications, how many players may have been monitored or whether Americans’ communications or activities were captured.

One American company, the maker of World of Warcraft, said that neither the NSA nor its British counterpart, the Government Communications Headquarters, had gotten permission to gather intelligence in its game. Many players are Americans, who can be targeted for surveillance only with approval from the nation’s secret intelligence court. The spy agencies, though, face far fewer restrictions on collecting certain data or communications overseas...."

On n'est plus tranquille nulle part.

AJ A. Gildner's curator insight, January 1, 2014 9:53 PM

I have participated in many online games like World of Warcraft  and I have noticed how other players have reacted to this.  Ever since this information has been released, it has become a topic of conversation among many. especially those who play these games.  If this keeps happening, there could be many more problems for the NSA in the future, but maybe I will be proven wrong.
