"Professor Mitra is a Physicist and teaches Educational Technology at Newcastle University. Some years ago he had a revolutionary idea: “The Hole in the wall”. He installed computers in the streets of the slums of India and observed that children organize by themselves and learn naturally. So have we all a teacher’s soul inside us?''

You simply use Data Highlighter to tag the data fields on your site with a mouse. Then Google can present your data more attractively — and in new ways — in search results and in other products such as the Google Knowledge Graph.

When the iPhone 5S will be released there will be less than a handful of smartphone equipped with fingerprint recognition. Apple won't be the first to include this in it's flagship model, but i'm sure their implementation will have something unique.

Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers

Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers | Surveillance Products | Scoop.it

This new report, “Learning in the 21st Century: Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers,” is the latest in the series and provides new insights that will inform college and university based teacher preparation programs as well as the induction and professional development processes within K-12 schools and districts. Tomorrow’s teachers may have the keys to finally unlock the potential of technology to transform teaching and learning, but much depends upon their experiences in their preparation program and how well future school leadership can support their expectations for essential technology tools and resources.

The One Feature That Changed Social Networking Forever

The One Feature That Changed Social Networking Forever | Surveillance Products | Scoop.it

What is the single most important innovation that Facebook ever came up with?

 

Before I answer that, let’s think of the real value for users on a social network. Social networks area classic example of the platform business model where users create all the value and there is very little value until users come on board. Real value for every individual user, then, is the value that his network is capable of creating.

The reason scams like this work is simple: they combine people’s fears about Facebook with a grain of actual news. While Facebook is considering video ads, it would never introduce a product that would halt users from using the site for any length of time. Even if they did want to implement video ads, they wouldn’t send out a survey asking users for their opinion. This scam is one of the more realistic ones that’s been distributed lately, though upon any close level of examination, it’s still an obvious a hoax.
