Verizon Wireless powers Maryland schools with Android tablets

first_imgSmartphones and tablets get a lot of attention from the tech world right now. These small computers can be used for just about anything these days. In fact the most common question I get asked about about a tablet is “Can my child use this for homework or schoolwork?”I typically go through the explanation of how it is possible, but there’s a risk that the experience would be so different from the classmates using Office or Google Docs that it might prove too frustrating and lead to sub-par work. But what happens when the entire classroom is using the exact same tablet? When the tablet is introduced in the classroom as the primary tool to be used for all points in the experience? The Verizon Foundation and Reginald Lewis High School decided to find out.Not all that long ago, Reginald Lewis High School in Baltimore, Maryland was deemed “persistently dangerous” by the Labor Department. According to the teachers, that started to change when Dr. Barney Wilson took over as principal of the school. Among the many changes he has made to try and turn the school around, Dr. Wilson has been a strong advocate for technology in the classroom. Dr. Wilson commented that many of the students attending Reginald Lewis do not have much in the way of technology in the home. They go to the public library to use computers to do their homework, or they used older computers in the home when they can. The cost in infrastructure and long term support of putting a computer in front of every child in the school was a difficult task to consider, so Dr. Wilson reached out to the Verizon Foundation.Verizon Wireless’ philanthropic arm is often involved in educational programs. Among the many ways they give back to their communities, they work with local schools to provide resources for further education. In partnership with Samsung, 100 Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets were lent to Reginald Lewis, each one with a 4G LTE SIM card inside. On top of this, Reginald Lewis was selected as one of the schools to take advantage of Verizon’s Mobile Learning Lab, a school bus that has been retrofitted into a mobile classroom with 4G LTE and tablets.The focus of the Mobile Learning Lab is specifically SAT prep, where mentors from Howard University and Morgan State are on the bus to help prepare students in a one-on-one environment. This Mobile Learning Lab travels to four different schools once a week to give this assistance.Of the many classrooms in Reginald Lewis that are taking advantage of this program, the AP Spanish class seems the most integrated into the environment. The teacher and students use Edmodo, an Android app that allows the students and teacher to work together in an educational environment (which we’ve previously covered). From the app, the teacher can issue quizzes or field one-on-one questions from the students. The teacher can share documents or videos, or even websites if the permissions are enabled by the teacher to do so. While Edmodo is running, the students are locked out of the parts of the Android tablet that would lead to distraction. Students are encouraged to work at their own pace for everything, and are able to do so with the personalized experience Edmodo offers.When I briefly interviewed one of the students, he explained that the Galaxy Tab was comfortable for him because he already used Android on his phone, and the keyboard was good enough on the tablet that he didn’t feel the need for a traditional computer.There’s certainly a benefit to encouraging digital literacy in any situation. By putting every student in the same environment, but allowing them to develop individually, these students can grow in unique directions. The work here at Reginald Lewis is a fraction of the work being done in the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC area to promote digital literacy by the Verizon Foundation. Several other schools take advantage of the Mobile Learning Lab, while half a dozen other schools in the area are working with Verizon 4G LTE powered smartphones, and tablets.Verizon Wireless works with all grade levels as well, not just High School students. In fact, one of their other programs in Maryland is with an elementary school. Its an impressive digital initiative, paired with great educational software to make these devices productivity focused in the classroom.last_img read more

MPs sworn in various differences to be settled

first_imgThe deputies voted to Parliament in the June 17 elections were sworn in during a straightforward ceremony. New Democracy has proposed that former Defence Minister Evangelos Meimarakis be elected speaker of the House but leftist SYRIZA and right-wing Independent Greeks are thought to oppose the nomination, which needs 151 of 300 votes to pass. Some members of the ND-PASOK-Democratic Left coalition, which has a total of 179 seats, may also vote against Meimarakis, prompting further nominations and votes and some embarrassment for Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. Another testing moment for the coalition will come when Parliament has to decide whether to approve the neofascist Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) party’s choice for deputy speaker. Under House rules, each of the seven parties in Parliament is allowed to have a deputy speaker. However, this is not a constitutional right and any candidate requires the approval of at least 75 MPs. Golden Dawn only has 18 MPs and would require the support of others for its candidate to be elected. Once elected, the new speaker will have to settle a dispute between SYRIZA and the Communist Party (KKE) over seating arrangements. KKE wants to sit in the same place it has been since 1974, which is in the front left rows of the debating chamber. But SYRIZA believes that as the main opposition party, its deputies should be seated in the front rows. Samaras is due to present the government’s policy program on Wednesday or Thursday next week but will first have to get the all-clear from his doctors. Samaras, who underwent an operation to a damaged retina on Saturday, is due to be examined on Sunday. Sources told Kathimerini that privatisations are going to form a key part of the plan Samaras will present. The prime minister wants to send a message that his government is determined to meet, and if possible exceed, the sell-off revenue targets agreed with Greece’s lenders. The privatisation of the Hellenic Railways Organisation (OSE) and subsidiaries of ATEbank will be priorities. Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Senators call for investigation of phone companies selling location data

first_img Politics Security The @fcc needs to investigate. Stat.https://t.co/1qe8ko1PbH— Jessica Rosenworcel (@JRosenworcel) January 8, 2019 What broken promise? We are in full swing of ending it – and it will be completely done in March, as planned and promised. We’re shutting it down -one by one, making sure consumers who use this for things like health and safety services have a chance to make other arrangements.— John Legere (@JohnLegere) January 10, 2019 Tags AT&T said that it cut off access to MicroBilt and was continuing to end partnerships with other location data aggregators. “We only permit sharing of location when a customer gives permission for cases like fraud prevention or emergency roadside assistance, or when required by law,” an AT&T spokesman said. Sprint and Verizon didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. None of the companies clarified how customers were giving consent to their data to be sold to third parties, or how much the companies were selling that data for. First published Jan. 10, 8:58 a.m. PT.Update, 11:55 a.m. PT: Embeds tweets from Rosenworcel and Legere.CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events. Here’s what to expect. The FCC didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. T-Mobile CEO John Legere, who originally promised Wyden that his company would stop selling customer location data in June, set a new deadline on Wednesday. Legere tweeted that the practice would end this March. The delay is to make sure that customers who use the data for safety services aren’t hurt by the changes, he explained.center_img Share your voice Comment Your phone location data was still on sale, seven months after mobile carriers said they were ending that practice. Nakhorn Yuangkratoke / EyeEm This is a call that mobile carriers won’t be happy to get. Several lawmakers are demanding that the Federal Communications Commission investigate companies like T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon after a Motherboard story Tuesday revealed that major mobile carriers were still selling customer location data to third parties, which would then offer the sensitive information to shady buyers.Your phone is a window into your whereabouts, as cell towers and GPS data provide nearly pinpoint accuracy on your every move. It’s why law enforcement rely on it to build cases. Abusive stalkers use it too.While privacy issues have affected tech giants, such as Google and Facebook, you can opt out of those platforms. With phone location data tracking, though, there aren’t many options for opting out of tracking other than not having a device to begin with.Mobile carriers have been selling location data linked to people’s phone numbers even though major carriers said seven months ago that they were ending this practice. Motherboard’s report showed the practice was still going on.Several senators and an FCC commissioner now want an investigation.”It’s not that people ‘don’t care about privacy,’ as some have argued – it’s that customers, along with policymakers, have been kept in the dark for years about data collection and commercialization practices,” Sen. Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia, said in a statement. He called for regulation to ensure that companies are upfront with customers about how their data is being used and sold. Multiple lawmakers have drafted privacy legislation, including Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon. His bill, introduced in November, would include a “Do Not Track” database, allowing Americans to opt out of data tracking. Wyden initially requested an FCC investigation last spring when the sale of phone location data was first revealed. At the time, the FCC said it was investigating LocationSmart, a company that provided geolocation data on nearly any phone in the US.  Now, Wyden’s doubling down on his request.”Sen. Wyden has previously called on the FCC to investigate wireless carriers’ relationships with location aggregators and data brokers, and believes an investigation is even more necessary given the news this week. He also believes the FTC must investigate these clear abuses of Americans’ personal data,” a spokesman for the senator said in a statement.While location data from your phone can be used for legitimate purposes, like emergency roadside assistance and finding your lost device, it is often sold to data aggregators that use the information for purposes outside of your control. T-Mobile noted that it didn’t have a relationship with location aggregator MicroBilt — which indirectly provided location data to Motherboard through a series of handoffs — but did have a relationship with location aggregator Zumigo. According to Motherboard, Zumigo gave that location data to MicroBilt without notifying the tracked person.”The American people have an absolute right to the privacy of their data, which is why I’m extraordinarily troubled by reports of this system of repackaging and reselling location data to unregulated third party services for potentially nefarious purposes,” Sen. Kamala Harris, a Democrat from California, said in a statement.Harris also called on the FCC needed to “immediately investigate these serious security concerns.” Jessica Rosenworcel, an FCC commissioner, said in a tweet Tuesday that the agency “needs to investigate.

We still don’t know who did this,” the girl’s mother was quoted as saying by TNM.last_img read more

Cardiff Council Mulls New Doctor Who Attraction

first_imgLess than one month after the Doctor Who Experience shut its doors, rumors of a new Cardiff Bay attraction are exciting fans.According to Wales Online, a local Cabinet member recently hinted at a replacement exhibit.Russell Goodway, head of Investment and Development, revealed “ongoing” discussions about the future use of the Bay building—previously an interactive museum chock full of Doctor Who memorabilia and artifacts.Opened in Wales in July 2012, the award-winning expo was always intended to be a fleeting love letter to the BBC show, a five-year adventure through space and time.An adventure that ended on Sept. 9, when the Doctor Who Experience closed its doors for good. Even die-hard fans like Bex Ferriday, creator of the “Save Cardiff’s Doctor Who Experience” petition (with nearly 13,000 signatures to date), couldn’t rescue the attraction from imminent death.There is no telling what will become of the modern facade; if a new lease is secured, Goodway tipped “potential leisure-based uses”—whatever the heck that means.Another Doctor Who-themed exhibition, if we’re lucky.Pose with the TARDIS at the Doctor Who Experience (via BBC)But, negotiations between BBC Worldwide, landowner Igloo, and the Welsh government didn’t result in an extension of the lease agreement before. So why should we believe that will change now?“I can confirm that my officials have now indicated that they are in a position to share proposals at a meeting that will be arranged shortly,” Goodway said in a statement emailed to Geek.Over the last five years, more than half a million visitors from across the world toured the Doctor Who Experience. The museum’s closure has cost six full-time jobs and 19 part-time positions.There has been talk of moving the popular exhibit elsewhere in the UK. But admiring the Third Doctor’s beloved Bessie or posing inside the TARDIS control room just wouldn’t be the same anywhere but Cardiff.The Welsh capital has served as a backdrop to the Doctor’s wild ride—in-house at BBC Wales studios and across the borough—since the show’s 2005 reboot. (Recent rumors, however, suggest a possible move to Manchester.)Wibbly-wobbly whispers don’t exactly instill a lot of hope in my Whovian heart. But it’s nice to know there are people, including some members of the Cardiff Council, who are fighting for our right to party like a Time Lord.Editor’s Note: This story was updated on Oct. 4 with comment from the City of Cardiff Council.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

This Robotic Butler Could Make Your Next Hotel StayInteresting

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 3 min read Next time you order room service, it might be delivered by an unexpected employee: a robot.As of August 20th, “A.L.O. the Botlr” officially joined the staff at the Aloft hotel in Cupertino, Calif. The creation of robotics startup Savioke, A.L.O. is capable of doing a lot of the tasks you might associate with your average bellhop.The hotel plans on using A.L.O. primarily as a way to deliver items to guests rooms without tying up the human staff in the process. For instance, if you call down to the front desk and ask for extra towels, the concierge can put a few inside the Botlr, program in your room number and send him on his way. When he gets to your door, the robot will give you a call. Open up, and a small display on his front will guide you through the process of quickly retrieving what you requested.Related: How $10,000 Can Score You a Self-Driving Car (Sort Of)A.L.O. the Botlr will also be able to help man the front desk and check in guests during particularly busy times. When it comes to tips, the robot only accepts tweets.Here’s a look at A.L.O. in action:“As soon as A.L.O. entered the room, we knew it was what we were looking for,” says Brian McGuinness, Global Brand Leader, Starwood’s Specialty Select Brands. “A.L.O. has the work ethic of Wall-E, the humor of Rosie from The Jetsons and reminds me of my favorite childhood robot, R2-D2.”Related: This High-Tech Spray Eats Smog, Turns Surfaces Into Self-Cleaning Germ-KillersBefore you freak out about robots taking over, A.L.O. isn’t meant to replace human staff, but instead free them up to focus on more personal interactions with guests at other times.While it’s performing some tasks for humans, you won’t mistake A.L.O. for one. The Botlr doesn’t identify itself as male or female, and looks more like R-2 than C3-PO. Its outfit is just a custom shrink-wrap and name tag.A.L.O. is the first of many Botlrs expected to be hired in the coming months at Aloft. If the trial is successful, we could see the digital butlers start to show up at other Aloft hotels and even new chains soon.Related: 3 Unusual Ways Smart Tech Meets Fashion August 25, 2014 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now »last_img read more

5 Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Already Influencing Your Daily Life and You

first_img For many of us, the very mention of artificial intelligence (AI) conjures up futuristic notions of Skynet and the malevolent robots that rose up to destroy humankind in the Terminator film series.Related: Artificial Intelligence Is Likely to Make a Career in Finance, Medicine or Law a Lot Less LucrativeIn reality, however, artificial intelligence is already here and it’s not out to kill us — well, not yet, anyway. Our computers are smarter than most of us realize and they’re getting smarter all the time.I had an eerie moment of this realization recently when searching my iPhone camera roll for some photos of a trip to the Cotswolds in the U.K. a few years ago. I opened up the search bar and started typing the word but only got up to the third letter when an album of images popped up featuring me and my heavily pregnant wife assembling a cot for our soon-to-be-born son.What made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck was the fact that I had never given these photos a caption or category that could have indicated the content of the image. My phone had somehow “inspected” the image and identified that it indeed featured a cot.Related: 5 Reasons Machine Learning Is the Future of MarketingI quickly discovered that my phone was far from unique or special in its ability. In the weeks that followed I noticed that Facebook had begun recognizing the faces of friends in the photos I was about to post without me having to manually tag them. The AI-driven technology that underpins this somewhat unnerving development has achieved an astonishing degree of accuracy in recent years.While the ethics and practicality of artificial intelligence are still up for debate, consider these five ways AI is already influencing and impacting your day-to-day life — whether you are aware of it or not:Virtual assistants, such as Siri or Google Assistant, can not only recognize what you say in natural language but even ascertain context and intent based on your tone of voice and request history.Voice recognition technology already enables you to speak a sentence in one language and have it translated to the listener’s language in real time.Recommendation algorithms on Spotify or Amazon make intelligent suggestions of products, books or music you may like.The map software on your phone makes route suggestions based on your previous travel patterns and current traffic conditions.The spam filter in your email software that quickly learns how to discern the sorts of emails that are relevant and necessary — and which ones aren’t.Related: Want to Be More Like Amazon? Start By Making Your Startup More Data-Driven.From a commercial and business perspective, the current applications of artificial intelligence are equally striking.JPMorgan Chase recently introduced a system for reviewing commercial loan contracts, which means work that once took loan officers 360,000 hours is now completed in a few seconds.One Brazilian online retailer implemented an AI system to predict the likelihood of customers clicking on certain advertisements, allowing them to make ad placements more effective, resulting in $125 million in additional revenue.Related: A Humanoid Robot Called Sophia Mocked Elon Musk After Being Asked About the Dangers of AIOf all the commercial applications of AI, Google’s recent mapping of the exact location of every business, household and street number in France stands out as especially remarkable. Traditionally a job this enormous would have required hundreds of GPS-enabled humans to manually go suburb to suburb and would have likely taken well over a year. Using AI, Google was able to program its image-recognition software to trawl through the millions of images in its Street View database to identify street numbers. The entire process took less than 60 minutes.Computers are getting smarter with every passing day — some even predict that they’ll overtake human intellectual capacity by as early as 2029. But, AI is more than a technology that will define our future — it is impacting our present in some extraordinary ways too.

Jacob Babchuk Gallery launches exhibit at Juan Santamaría Airport

first_imgThe Jacob Babchuk Gallery in Escazú has displayed works from its private art collection for the enjoyment of the public at the Juan Santamaría Airport (SJO), located in Alajuela.The project started out as an initiative by U.S. art dealer Cobi Babchuk, who set up the arrangement so that a space within the airport could be used both as a gallery and as a space for purchasing art.His art collection includes both national and international artists such as Costa Rican photographer Jaime Tischler, Israeli photographer Lili Almog, Israeli fine artist Basmat Levin, and Costa Rican artist John Paul Fauves. All of the works on display at the airport are located in the American Express Platinum Lounge and the Copa Club VIP Lounge. Basmat Levin’s artworks at the American Express Platinum Lounge.

Roberto Delgado Webb / The Tico Times“The whole idea of the Juan Santamaría Airport came from the love of art and the experience that I have here in Costa Rica. I wanted to share my collection with the public,” Babchuk told The Tico Times during a visit to the lounges. “The reason we did the international art exhibition in the airport is because a lot of people come to Costa Rica for the nature, so we wanted to show them that we also have art sales.” Cobi Babchuk (left) changing one of Basmat Levin’s purchased pieces during our visit.

The idea is that the artists bring their pieces and exhibit them here and get exposure,” Fonseca told The Tico Times. John Paul Fauves’s artwork at the Copa Club VIP Lounge. Roberto Delgado Webb / The Tico TimesIt’s the first time the two lounges have worked with Babchuk.“We review each piece of work… we always try to get support from the artists as well as helping them, so that it’s a mutual help,” Hernández told The Tico Times.In the case of the Copa Club VIP Lounge, approximately 17,000 people come through the lounge per month. Basmat Levin’s artwork at the Copa Club VIP Lounge. Roberto Delgado Webb / The Tico Times“We obviously lend the space [for the artists] to exhibit their work so that they open themselves toward an international market because many people from many countries all over the world come in here,” Hernández mentioned.With this wide and varied audience, Babchuk has been able to sell pieces from the collection to international buyers.

was still ruled by mass entertainers and Saket Chaudhury was yet to direct his first film Akhtar’s seminal film proved to be a major catalyst for Chaudhary who was still figuring out a way to make his kind of films within the conventional contours of Bollywood Encouraged to tell “urban youth-centric stories that emerge from our milieu” Chaudhury created and directed a television show for Star One about the lives of four friends a homage of sorts called Dil Kya Chahta Hai But more importantly Dil Chahta Hai pushed him into film direction — Pyaar Ke Side Effects (PKSE) launched his directorial career successfully in 2006 So it is fitting that for his latest film Shaadi Ke Side Effects (SKSE) Chaudhary has cast Akhtar in the lead role “It is just a series of happy coincidences” says Chaudhury with laugh The film releases today It won’t be wrong to liken his cinema to Akhtar’s — a middle-of-the-road approach between tasteful filmmaking and commercial cinema “Films are like a conversation you have with the audience In India you have to tell stories in a popular narrative style Putting lip-synced song sequences doesn’t come naturally to me but I weave it in” says the 39-year-old writer-director who began his career in showbiz as a writer for Movers and Shakers a popular comic talk show in the late ’90s His first stint in the movies was writing the script of the epic historical drama Asoka (2001) Interested in “making movies on modern ideas and concerns” Chaudhary has centred both his films around the dynamics of a couple’s relationship While PKSE was a refreshingly humorous take on the man-woman relationship that emerged from “commitment phobia of this generation” SKSE its sequel touches upon the next phase in the life of that relationship — marriage followed by children “It is the first time you stop caring about yourself; the child’s needs are all-absorbing You are not at the centre of things anymore and there is a big shift in lifestyle” he says Speaking about modern takes on relationships in movies Chaudhary names filmmakers who have been hugely influential in the genre “I like contemporary comedies such as Woody Allen’s He’s made smart humorous movies on relationships such as Manhattan and Annie Hall In Hindi Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s urban comic dramas are a favourite” he says “They are like great pop songs They need skills and artistry” Not being married wasn’t a problem for Chaudhary; just observing friends and reading books sufficed “A couple who are my friends was convinced that I had taken a particular scene — that appears in the trailers — from their lives whereas I had just imagined it” says the filmmaker who dabbled in advertising before turning to movies While he admits that the gender dynamics in the film is narrated from a male point of view he ends the story in a way that conveys how misplaced a singular viewpoint can be “Both people change over time and you have to constantly adjust with each other” says Chaudhary whose next is a film for Saif Ali Khan’s home production For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Nandini Nair | New Delhi |
