PowerPoint is a presentation software program that allows you to easily customize your presentations into slide shows, photo albums, web pages and more that is widely used in classrooms. Excel allows students to prepare charts and diagrams that can be used to explain complicated concepts, get the student motivated, and review progress. These diagrams and charts are pictorial representations of the information; both are used to communicate visually and both try to simplify the information that the student is conveying. The internet is the most popular way for researching today. You can find anything on the internet. It helps students with assignments and research papers. It is a gateway to international and local communication.

...still suffers in comparison to arch- rival GE, whose shares have had a total return of 423% over the past 10 years, versus 273% for the German company. Von Pierer himself has admitted that he wasn’t always able to push change as fast as he would have liked. It’s not just a question of cutting costs. “In the innovation game, productivity and R&D matter more than cost structure,” says William M. Castell, CEO of GE Healthcare. Siemens boasts that its engineers and scientists generate more than 8,000 inventions a year, but it needs to do more to turn those innovations into commercial products. Siemens was a leader in introducing mobile-phone handsets with color screens and built-in MP3 music players, for example, but wasn’t able to translate its tech edge into market strength. Can Kleinfeld succeed? He doubtless has the drive. Kleinfeld’s father, a shipyard laborer who became an engineer by studying nights, died when the boy was 10. That was a “brutal” experience, Kleinfeld says, but the hardship that followed forged a determination to succeed. An only child, he stocked grocery shelves at age 12 and has held a job ever since. After studying business at Georg August University in Göttingen, Kleinfeld put in stints at a Nuremberg market research firm and at drugmaker Ciba-Geigy before joining Siemens’s corporate sales and marketing department in 1987. The new Siemens chief was a multitasker before anyone used the term. Many of his generation milk Germany’s free university system for......

...Findings From HSC Research Brief NO. 8, OCTOBER 2008 How Engaged Are Consumers in Their Health and Health Care, and Why Does It Matter? By judith h. hiBBard and peter j. cunningham Patient activation refers to a person’s ability to manage their health and health care. Engaging or activating consumers has become a priority for employers, health plans and policy makers. The level of patient activation varies considerably in the U.S. population, with less than half of the adult population at the highest level of activation, according to a new study by the Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC) (see Figure 1). Activation levels are especially low for people with low incomes, less education, Medicaid enrollees, and people with poor self-reported health. Higher activation levels are associated with much lower levels of unmet need for medical care and greater support from health care providers for self-management of chronic conditions. Figure 1 Level of Activation of U.S. Adults, 18 and Older, 2007 Level 1 (least activated) 6.8% Level 2 14.6% Level 4 (most activated) 41.4% Level 3 37.2% Note: Four levels of patient activation have been identified through the Patient Activation Measure (PAM). At Level 1, the least-activated level, people tend to be passive and may not feel confident enough to play an active role in their own health. At Level 2, people may lack basic knowledge and confidence in their ability to manage their health. At Level 3, people appear to be......

...the result is that they can improve their academic Acharya 2 performance and self-confidence. It keeps students motivated and also enables them to make satisfactory decisions about how they use their time and effort. Setting goals enables students to measure their progress towards achieving them; it also determines whether or not they achieve what they want. Personal responsibility leads to greater accomplishments in college. Students have more freedom and independence in college as compared to high school. In college no one monitors their progress, no one knows whether or not they are getting good grades, or whether they are doing their assignments on time. That is why students have to learn to take the responsibility for their education in order to be successful in their college life and they must know they are responsible for their academic progress. It requires students to accept the consequences of their work and the choices they make affect their college success. Good time management is also important for college success. Time management allows every student to have more free time so that they can keep track of all their commitments. They can also look for their assignments and finish the entire task they have to do on time. It also allows them to organize their priorities and helps them to make conscious choices, so students can spend more of their time doing things that are the most important and valuable to them. By doing so, they will make sure that they......

...John Weatherwax Week 7 En 1320 Research paper New technology break troughs, Research question, less than 30 years ago we had no cell phones If we can talk on a cell phone that is a watch today and where will we be in 30 more years? Just by what I have seen and heard from various producers of cell phones I do believe that the cell phone tech is going to be in the field of a wearable devices the new (in the last few years ) watches are just the start. In the 50’s Dick Tracy had a watch that the new watches mimic so what is next will it implants or projectable it is hard to tell but in my thoughts it will be in the realm of a wearable and possibly a wearable projection device. Articale #1 Cast your mind back to late 2008, when the first Android-powered handset saw the light of day. Obama won his first Presidential election, Apple launched its App Store (the iPhone had appeared the year before), Google announced its own Chrome browser and we got our first look at the company's new mobile OS on the T-Mobile G1. The Android of 2013 is a world away from that 2008 version, where the Android Market was in its infancy, there were no native video playback capabilities and the G1 had no multi-touch support. But Google is going to have to keep innovating and improving its mobile OS to keep the lion's share of the smartphone market. We've taken a peek into the future to consider what Android might look like in the year 2020. With new Android monikers now appearing about......

...about the future of education with respect to wearable technology Bill Gates said that wearables was cool but he did not see a connection with education. I would like to disagree with him and believe that wearable technology has massive potential and can change the way we learn both inside and outside the classroom. While we have just started exploring the concept and many of the developments being made in just the past 2 years, the wearable technology is is still in its infancy with many companies just testing the waters and seeing where it leads. Current use of Technology in the Classroom When the ipad was released in 2010 it was initially dismissed to be a luxury item with no exact purpose but just in a couple of years it has sold more than 240mn units till Jan 2015 and has found its way in many industries including education. There are many schools and universities using tablets to facilitate the learning process. There will be a similar growth in the wearable technology sector. It will majorly affect the media, entertainment and enterprise industries and in a few years find its way in the education sector.

Tech TLF Panel survey conducted on behalf of kids clothing retailer found that four in five parents believe technology and gadgets are good for kids, aiding in their development. The study found that 37 percent of parents asked said that their child spent between one and two hours a day playing with tech gadgets, and 28 percent said between two- and three hours. Moreover, the study found that 38 percent of two- to five-year-olds own an Android tablet, and 32 percent own an iPad; almost a third (32 percent) of these kids also have a mobile phone. The reason behind all this gadget use: over a third of parents (35 percent) said they use tech gadgets to entertain their children because they are convenient, and nearly a quarter (23 percent) because they want their children to be tech-savvy. A 2015 survey of 1,000 British mothers of children aged 2 to 12 found that 85 percent of mums admit to using technology to keep the kids occupied while they get on with other activities. The survey pointed to children spending on average around 17 hours a week in front of a screen – almost double the 8.8 weekly hours spent playing outside. Wanting our children to tech-savvy is understandable, and the need to keep them entertained will also make sense to many a parent. But we must also weigh up the risks associated with children having too much screen time. In his lecture ‘Managing Screen Time and Screen Dependency’ Dr Aric Sigman argues that “whether it’s Facebook, the......

...feel that what they are buying is directed to those who demand the best. So when critics argue that Apple is very controlling over their products and who can develop software’s for them or sell them, you can be sure that, that is exactly how CEO Steve Jobs wants it to be. It’s very clear how this technological mogul has got to where it is, by not compromising or losing focus on what their mission as a company is. Nicholas Bonsack reports, “In a recent Consumer Reports survey focusing on four aspects of customer service for computers — problem solved, phone wait time, and the quality of phone and online support staffs — Consumer Reports subscribers gave Apple the highest marks among the top computer vendors for both laptop and desktop tech support. Apple was the only company to earn top scores in all four categories”(2). Aside from Apple striving to be the most innovative computer and electronic device manufacturer, they also out do themselves when it comes to customer service, which we all wish was true for most of the companies out there. You can say that Apple has found a secret recipe for success, combining innovation, quality, style and an outstanding after sale service. Now it’s not so hard to figure out what all the hype is about. They are profoundly dedicated to solving our problems as consumers, while giving us beautifully simple devices that do what we need them to do and then some. By not being interested in pleasing absolutely everyone, they give their......

...While videoconferencing technology was initially used primarily within internal corporate communication networks, one of the first community service usages of the technology started in 1992 through a unique partnership with PictureTel and IBM Corporations which at the time were promoting a jointly developed desktop based videoconferencing product known as the PCS/1. Over the next 15 years, Project DIANE (Diversified Information and Assistance Network) grew to utilize a variety of videoconferencing platforms to create a multistate cooperative public service and distance education network consisting of several hundred schools, neighborhood centers, libraries, science museums, zoos and parks, public assistance centers, and other community oriented organizations. In the 2000s, videotelephony was popularized via free Internet services such as Skype and iChat, web plugins and on-line telecommunication programs which promoted low cost, albeit low-quality, videoconferencing to virtually every location with an Internet connection. In May 2005, the first high definition video conferencing systems, produced by LifeSize Communications, were displayed at the Interop trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, able to provide 30 frames per second at a 1280 by 720 display resolution.[9][10] Polycom introduced its first high definition video conferencing system to the market in 2006. Currently, high definition resolution has now become a standard feature, with most major suppliers in the......

...kinds of annotations are true for any combination of the abovementioned strategies, therefore transforming them complementary to each other. One additional point regarding the strategic use of Information Technology is that IT really affects the human resources of an organization. Thus via Information technology companies are able to design systems which support planning to meet personnel needs of the business.
