Pablo Barrios's curator insight, July 1, 2014 5:53 PM

Excelente vídeo con una clara explicación sobre cómo utilizar la Herramienta para Presentaciones de Google Drive. Simple y una alternativa más a lo ya tradicional.

Arlis Groves's curator insight, July 4, 2014 4:56 PM

Why choose Google Drive's Presentation app over Power Point?  No reason, unless you are collaborating on a presentation.  Since more students are working on projects electronically and from different locations, this could be a great tool.

Sphero Edu + Swift Playgrounds – Sphero Edu – Medium

Sphero Edu + Swift Playgrounds – Sphero Edu – Medium | Technology News | Scoop.it
At the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in 2016, Apple announced Swift Playgrounds, a revolutionary app for the iPad that makes learning the Swift language interactive and fun for all learners. Swift Playgrounds is essentially a video game that teaches kids how to code using Apple’s Swift programming language. The interface allows you see what you’re creating with code as you write it — type your code on the left and immediately see the result on the right. Earlier in 2017, the Sphero Edu team partnered with Apple to build the first integrated Playground content designed to control real world robots. On June 5th at WWDC, Apple unveiled the new content that is now part of the Swift Playgrounds app. Thanks to our new partnership, you can now program real world robots including Sphero’s very own SPRK+.

Cybersecurity Is Everyone’s Responsibility

Cybersecurity Is Everyone’s Responsibility | Technology News | Scoop.it
For IT: Ensure software is patched, data is encrypted and your environment is up-to-date with the latest protection. Major global cyberattacks like WannaCry and NotPetya underscore the need to keep systems updated and patched. This one step can help prevent the next attack and your organization’s reputation. It might also be time to evaluate your threat detection and response capabilities. Does your team have the skills needed and the right technology in place to ensure smaller security incidents don’t erupt into debilitating disasters?

For employees: When you’re on the front line, you’re the most likely target in a phishing scheme. That makes it critical to ask your organization’s CISO or CIO about available training and what steps to take if you do find yourself a victim.

As a rule of thumb: Beware of what you click! If it’s from a user you don’t know, or if the sender’s email is not one you’re familiar with, take caution and don’t open any links or attachments until you’ve consulted the IT team.

For management: Change happens at the top. Talk openly about the risks facing your business and what employees might face day-to-day. Inserting cybersecurity into the workplace lexicon makes staff more aware of the threats they may encounter.

Education and training programs are no longer just nice to have—they’re critical! Unfortunately, only 53% of organizations have programs in place to educate employees about security threats. However, the ROI on these types of program is remarkable—more than 50% of InfoSec professionals say they can quantify the reduction in phishing susceptibility among users.

Simon - coded in Sphero

Simon - coded in Sphero | Technology News | Scoop.it
Play until your hearts content. Check it out... we recreated the Simon game with Sphero! Simon was a popular game launched back in 1978. It's a disc that plays a series of sounds and lights, then you tap the colored buttons to mimic the series from memory. If you get the series right, it becomes progressively harder by increasing the sequence length. When you get the sequence wrong, the game is over.

In the Sphero version of this game, you'll need to print out or make your own Simon game card and put Sphero in the center. Watch and listen for each color sequence... when you see the blue tail light turn on, tip the Sphero toward each color to match. You get one point for each sequence you complete. How many points will you score in Sphero Simon?

Lost in Translation: Big Data Innovation is Missing the Point

Lost in Translation: Big Data Innovation is Missing the Point | Technology News | Scoop.it
Business Intelligence (BI) as currently practiced, on premise or in the cloud, with new tools or old, does not work. Why? Recent innovation in Big Data has focused on the wrong problem: building a better mouse trap, rather than innovating the entire approach. For example, take Tableau or Qlik. Both offer significantly better Data Discovery than the previous generation of tools; however, despite marketing claims around ease of use and a low level of technical expertise needed, these tools are still designed for experienced analysts and data scientists. Unless highly technical, a business user cannot put them to good use. This problem exists across the entire BI project lifecycle: First, someone very technical needs to create a data mart (or warehouse or lake). That person is, by definition, a technologist, not a business expert. Therefore, interpretation of requirements is an essential step in this process. Much is lost in translation during this step. The usual answer is to load everything including the kitchen sink into the data mart, which then makes it unwieldy, even more expensive to maintain, and costs a mint to store and to keep current. Creating a data mart takes time, and business requirements change constantly. Therefore, data mart design is usually not current. Second, extracting insights from the data mart is an iterative process. An insight leads to unanticipated questions, requiring a new insight. Each insight is a result of a number of queries, metrics, visualizations, and stat models. Each insight requires a sophisticated application, one that typically depends on a technical person to create. Since the technical person creating the application is usually also not a business expert, much is lost in translation here as well. And, because many business users lack the analytical or statistical training to define a productive discovery process, the iterations are ad hoc, lead to blind alleys, and lack of understanding of the result. So what to do? Like most technologies, BI is a tool on which someone needs to build a solution for practical daily use and consumption by non-technical business users. The future of BI lies in creation of Applied Business Analytics solutions – solutions built to meet specific business needs, to answer specific business questions, which are delivered as a service and at scale to businesses and end users. For most business processes, there are documented best practices, with differences by industry sector, geography, or size of the organization. These best practices can be interpreted and converted into analytics that measure, forecast, and model future outcomes based on the understanding of the process parameters which influence a given outcome.
