More textbooks to be available on digital devices

Will iPad, or devices like it, transform the classroom? Will they reinvent books? Save newspapers?
Some think so.
Textbook publishers are already making deals with software companies to digitize their texts. ScrollMotion is one example of a software company positioned to adapt books, create textbooks, texts and study guides for the tablet computer market.
According to Compass Intelligence, a market research firm, investment in technology is set to grow from $61.9 million in 2013, up from about $48 billion in 2008.
No one knows now whether the revolutionizing product, one that would be embraced by students and teachers, will be the Apple iPad or something else. Contenders in the sector are netbooks, very small laptop computers, and the Kindle, an electronic reader that lets users instantly and seamlessly download books from Amazon.com.
Also unknown are the applications that will dominate digital education.
ScrollMotion’s chief executive John Lema is sure of one thing. “This is the beginning of handheld education,” Lema told the Wall Street Journal.
The iPad’s entry level price of $499 puts it well in range of investments for schools. But experts don’t expect schools to adopt the device right away.

HP’s new touch computers

HP wants to put you ‘in touch’ with its computers
Hewlett-Packard’s new line of all-in-one TouchSmart PCs gives you an alternative to using a mouse.
Use your fingers instead. By touching the screen, you can launch applications, play music, crop or print photos and handle many other tasks.
As an all-in-one computer, the TouchSmart IQ506 has all its works positioned under the display. It’s in the same class as the Dell XPS One, Gateway One and Apple iMac, but none of them boasts a touch experience.
HP has  built its own touch software for photo, videos and music on top of the touch capabilities included in Vista.
Tech analysts for U.S. News & World Report say that TouchSmart would be ideal as a hub for household planning. It could serve as an electronic concierge to help busy families.
Located in the kitchen, the unit would be the place for calendars, recipes, notes and to-do lists. It could eliminate the clutter of notes seen on many refrigerators, and the information would be easily available by a touch.
Hewlett-Packard says it’s perfect for entertainment needs with its video playing, photo printing and TV tuner.
HP’s Vickram Bedi, product management director for worldwide consumer PCs, says the TouchSmarts are selling very well.
Though touch computing is not new, it has not previously gone mainstream. The popularity of touch through the Apple iPhone is predicted to give touch screens more acceptability, according to tech analyst Edward C. Baig.
The company’s first TouchSmart came out in 2007. At $1,300 and up, this year’s model is less expensive and has more features. A model slated for appearance in 2010 will have “multitouchL” features and may include a Blu-ray DVD drive.

The Best Online Learning Games — 2008

“It’s quite a diverse collection. So if you have your student participate in the voting they might, or might not, want to try out all of them. Less than a handful require registration, but those that do make it very easy.”


The magic of online learning boosts kids’ reading & writing

“Several children, some of whom couldn’t sit still, became engaged in Abracadabra’s educational gaming format. It offers surprises, competition and rewards, without comparing one student to another. One boy in particular, who struggled with simple letter identification, was absolutely engrossed,” Dr Lea said.

Report Reveals Growing Momentum in Online Learning
“Over 26% of teachers in 2007 chose online learning as their preferred methodology for their own professional development, compared to 7% in 2006.”

GetEducated.com Online Education Survey Ranks Top Best Consumer Buys in Online Engineering Graduate Schools and Master Degrees

“The online education survey ranks and recommends 28 engineering schools as Consumer Best Buy Online Universities, offering brand name graduate degrees online to consumers at tuition costs well below the national average.”

The education room

Some family rooms are being renovated with features like desks and laptop ports for every member of the family. Included are special lighting for computer work, homework, and reading. There can be bookshelves, storage areas, and work stations for each person.

One builder quoted in The Wall Street Journal offers a bright yellow education room with chairs and desks that adjust to adult and kid heights. In the family home office, mom, dad, and the kids bond over work instead of television.

Some moms and dads, however, say they need a separate home office.

Enrich your life with continuing education

When you add a column of numbers or calculate a percentage, do you wish you had better math skills?

Do you sometimes think that a better job would come your way if you knew more computer programs? Or maybe you just want to enrich your life and have the urge to go back to school.

Continuing education and on-the-job training programs include everything from basic education and equipment operation to computer training and college classes.

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) courses improve language, reading, and writing skills. English as a second language is a good subject for those who came to the U.S. from another country.

Math and basic educational courses are excellent preparation for a GED (general equivalency diploma) or high school diploma equivalent. Many school districts also offer ABE classes.

In some areas of study, the company offers tuition reimbursement for college courses. Most approved courses are directly related to a person’s current job, but others are not.

Stop by the Human Resources Department at your earliest convenience. Check to see what courses of study are available to you and sign up before classes are filled. You could find them enjoyable as well as beneficial to your future.
