Turning off autocorrect

Turning off autocorrect | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it
Mark Pegrum's insight:

If you use a phone to send text messages, chances are you’ve been burned by autocorrect at some point. You’ve typed messages to friends or co-workers wherein “meeting” morphed into “mating,” or the phone changed “Trish” to “trash” without you noticing—making you appear ridiculous, incompetent, or drunk. We’ve all been there.

 

A quick perusal of Twitter on a few recent weekday afternoons showed that someone tweets “stupid autocorrect” or “f---ing autocorrect” approximately once every 65 seconds. And seemingly everyone has a story about bizarre or problematic “corrections”—“arguments” becoming “argue menus,” “hiney” taking the place of “honey,” and so on. The iPhone transforms “Steve Buscemi” into “Steve bus emu.”

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Benefits and risks of ICT use in early childhood

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Benefits and risks of ICT use in early childhood | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

In fact, when used judiciously, ICT can support different aspects of learning and development processes of young children, including language, creativity and problem-solving skills. Children can also play and learn together using ICT, which can foster their ability to communicate and collaborate. Moreover, ICT facilitate more personalized learning and thus can diversify and increase learning opportunities for every child, including children with special educational needs.

Apple's Future Is In These Six Areas

Apple's Future Is In These Six Areas | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Macquarie analyst Ben Schachter initiated coverage of Apple last night, giving the stock an outperform rating, and a price target of $US630.

Schachter’s bullish forecast is built around the success of iTunes, and services, which he thinks will be a profitable, high-growth business. He thinks the hardware business growth will fade. The iPhone will see single-digit growth, and the iPad and the Mac might stop growing altogether.

He builds his entire forecast around the current line of products. He doesn’t forecast products that don’t exist because … um, they don’t exist.

However! He does list six categories where he thinks Apple could attack and create new, high-growth businesses. In case you’re wondering what people think the future holds for Apple, here’s a peek.

Mark Pegrum's insight:

Interesting speculation on likely future developments at Apple.
