How To Use Electronics All Day Without Destroying Your Body (video)

It’s not just sitting at a computer all day long that’s killing modern man: hunching over to use our cell phones, leaning back to read tablets, and even the standing desk is wreaking havoc on our bodies. Crippling our posture to use tiny devices for extended periods of time drops calorie burn dramatically, leads to painful joint problems, and shortens life expectancy.

 

We caught up with Kelly Starrett, Crossfit’s popular mobility expert and physical therapist to America’s elite fighting forces, to find out how we can spend endless hours with electronics without the associated problems.

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: SLJ’s latest tech survey shows that media specialists are leading the way

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: SLJ’s latest tech survey shows that media specialists are leading the way | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

So far, the results have been pretty impressive: 87 percent of school librarians report that they’re in charge of their library’s technology, with 60 percent adding that they’ve also introduced it into the classroom. Furthermore, 44 percent now serve on their school’s tech team, and in these budget-troubled times, when many library positions are on the line, that role may mean increased job security. In fact, 55 percent of the elementary, middle, and high school librarians that responded to our survey say that their tech skills have increased their value in administrators’ eyes.

The iPad Mini’s Meaning and Impact - on #libraries | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

With this smaller device, the reach of the Apple iOS and resources through it expands to more of our patrons (those preferring the smaller device size and smoother integration into their lives) and into more of their spaces. So be prepared for more iOS mobile engagement with your content and services. For librarians’ use: the Mini may be better suited for mobile library staff: easier use with Square and mobile payments, more portable for roving reference, for checking out tablets to users."
