#ISTE17: Realizing the Path to Student-Centered Learning

first_imgNext week educators, administrators, students and technology providers will meet at the annual ISTE conference to collaborate on all things ed-tech and discuss the latest educator-tested strategies for transforming learning and teaching. This year’s event in San Antonio continues the conversation on student-lead learning, a concept that’s vastly different from the “old days” when education was often a recitation of information from one person to a classroom full of students. Technology has and is playing a prominent role in this development, enabling students to learn and create differently than before, while preparing them for the modern workforce.We will be hosting several sessions and activities as well as introducing new solutions that fall under our umbrella theme of “Realizing your path to student-centered transformation.” Innovative ideas and ubiquitous access to digital resources provide endless opportunities to create authentic student-centered learning experiences and we at Dell EMC want to make sure educators have the tools they need to inspire and empower students to take charge of their learning experience.Introducing the S518WL ProjectorOn the product front, we will be introducing a new advanced 4K laser projector, the S518WL – a more affordable version of our recently announced Dell Advanced 4K Laser Projector (S718QL) developed with K-12 classrooms in mind. With its affordable price point, the S518WL is a reliable, low-maintenance and lamp-free laser projector with 10-year laser life that delivers crystal clear presentations in the classroom. With instant on and off since the laser doesn’t need to warm up or cool down, ability to present using a USB or wirelessly via school network, laptop, tablet or phone, you can connect and start presenting immediately.  It’s a great addition to the refreshed education portfolio we announced earlier this year at the BETT show in London.Putting Customers in the SpotlightThere are countless solutions available when it comes to creating an environment to support student-led learning, but knowing where and how to get started can be a challenge. We’ll host a spotlight discussion on Monday on “Transforming space: Practical strategies to empower student-led learning” where our customer panelists will provide insights into what it takes to change the physical learning space to support more immersive and collaborative learning models. The session will feature Gabi Nino, principal of Joe Lee Johnson elementary, Round Rock ISD; Rachel Sotelo, academy specialist at Cedar Ridge High School, Round Rock ISD; students from Cedar Ridge School High School; and Dr. Robert Dillon, director of Innovation Learning, University City School District.Dell Canvas Demos and MoreThe Dell EMC Learning Lounge (room 209) will feature a variety of sessions, including immersive and interactive workshops, discussions and experiences on everything from data protection to unleashing creativity in the classroom and more. We’ll discuss the timely topic of protecting your district’s data even as headlines of ransomware attacks keep making the news, transforming learning environments and unleashing creativity in the classroom, as well as teaching digital literacy and citizenship to ensure students are equipped to maintain integrity in their digital and non-digital lives inside and outside of the classroom. We will also have student artists showcasing the capabilities of our Dell Canvas solution on Monday and Tuesday during the show.Come by the Dell EMC Learning Lounge in room 209 to meet our team, join the conversation online using the #ISTE17 hashtag and follow up on Twitter for more @DellEMCedu.

Cyber Espionage in the 21st Century

first_img The technological advancements in the second half of the 20th century revolutionized espionage activity, replacing human sources with highly complex and precise systems, such as image satellites, platforms to monitor signs and communications, and unmanned vehicles. In the 21st century, this process, characterized by the digital era, has been enhanced by incorporating the existing sources to a more aggressive component. Computer viruses are modular entities for espionage activities and they already show a strong tendency of becoming the main weapon in future wars, in the “super cyber weapons” category. The first cyber attack happened in 2003, in Estonia, causing great loss to the economy of that country. Since then it has been possible to evaluate the degree of vulnerability due to the increasing reliance on systems that are interconnected to various areas. This type of activity has been escalating internationally and each day millions of new spyware software is found. An evolution of the infamous Trojan Horse was discovered in 2009. The super virus Stuxnel and Flame, for example, were used to spy and neutralize systems that had confidential information on the Iranian nuclear program. More recently, a new super virus has been identified. It is similar to Flame, known as Madi, and it is used to spy on financial organizations and governmental authorities who have any type of confidential knowledge. Because of the high complexity of these super viruses, it has not been possible to evaluate the real extent of the damage caused by them, which can take years. However, as much as the losses, the gains can be immeasurable, due to the capability of consolidating or changing the configuration of the global power and influence. In any case, the current scenario leads us to believe that in future possible wars, humans will have a secondary position whose main role is to type on keyboards and press buttons. *André Luís Woloszyn is a strategic affairs analyst By Dialogo September 11, 2012last_img read more

COVID-19: Public initiatives grow to produce face shields to help medical workers

first_img“By donating some 65,000, you help us produce one face mask for medical workers on the frontline in the battle against COVID-19,” Gudskul said.Read also: Philippine student hopes 3D printer can be lifesaver for doctorsIn Bandung, West Java, a small business that normally produces light sabers has diverted its resources to producing up to 100 face shields a day. The owner, Aldo Ikhwanul Khalid, said on Instagram account @lifeshield-facemask that the initiative had started on March 25 after news reports on the scarcity of protective gear for medical personnel. He said he and his team aimed to produce as many shields as possible.”If you are a medical worker, doctor or nurse in the battle against COVID-19 and want this kind of shield, you can contact us and we will try to meet your need,” Aldo said. He also created an opportunity for those interested in donating money through the info on the Instagram site.The Massachusetts Institute of Technology said face shields could extend the ‘life’ of critically available face masks by providing another layer of protection that cover wearers’ faces. They protect healthcare professionals from virus particles spread through coughing or sneezing. The post has reportedly prompted a social community in Bali, Popo Danes Architect, to produce the face shield and distribute it for free to medical workers at local community health centers (Puskesmas).”We are deeply touched by knowing that some communities in various regions have copied our design to develop simple face shields,” Spedagi said, adding that the production cost for one shield was around Rp 3,000 (18 US cents).Jakarta-based art communities Gudskul Contemporary Art and Ecosystem Studies have separately called on people to donate some of their money for face shield production. “Please imitate and adapt in accordance to the conditions of [your] location. The design is made for social purposes. [We] don’t allow mass production for profit-oriented business,” the group said in the caption on Wednesday.center_img Amid a scarcity of personal protective equipment (PPE) for health workers in the fight against COVID-19, several community groups across the country have taken the initiative to produce face shields for extra protection against the contagious disease.One such community, the Spedagi social entrepreneurship group in Kendangan village, Temanggung regency, Central Java, has shared tips on making affordable protective gear for medical workers and members of the public.Through its Instagram account @spedagimovement, the group explains that the basic materials needed to make the shield are ethylene-vinyl acetate and thick mica plastic.
