Over Billion Dollars and Video Games

If you are wondering what video games have to do with over a billion dollars, then let me tell you that this is the amount of money that consumers spend on video games during a month. During one month it was $1.23 billion and this seems like a very high amount considering that the price of more essential items like food grew rapidly. I think that this clearly shows that people need entertainment and time for having fun, as much as they need other products, which are often considered to be a higher priority among many households. One of the reasons that Americans spent some much on video games is due to consoles and that there are recently many good games coming out.

Widgets

If you are a webmaster, then you were probably tempted a few times to put some widgets on your site. Widgets can be often useful elements on a website and that is why many people embed them. Nonetheless, some webmasters exaggerated with the number of widgets and they include dozens of various widgets on their sidebar. While it may sound like a lot of fun, it can drastically reduce the loading time of webpages. This might be especially a problem if the site does not have reliable hosting. Before you embed too many elements on your pages, please make sure that they are actually needed and that they will not slow down your site.

Fidget Spinners

Fidget spinners are the latest addition to the hype among school-going kids. Teachers and parents are in fact confused whether to allow or ban the usage of it. The internet has mixed reviews thus making it difficult to decide whether it is good or bad. I am sure that you know what I am talking about here.

Did you know that the researchers have come up with the proven fact that these toys greatly help in calming the nerves thus increasing concentration. It is known to help hyper active kids to be hooked to one place. The fidget spinners are also known to be a boon for attention deficit kids who suffer from autism, ADHD, emotional stress or even anxiety disorder. On the other hand, for the normal kids these spinners are known to disturb or divert them from listening to their classes. With reasons to state on both side of the coin, the debate of fidget spinners to be a being a boon or bane is still ongoing on.

The toy called ‘fidgets’ are not new to the world as it has been used for around 15 years. There are several teachers who support these spinners as they say that they have seen the most restless boys in the classroom concentrating and being focused on it while spinning these toys which otherwise does not happen for any reason.

Research is being carried out by the experts to learn whether the fidget spinners can really help in improving the concentration of the kids and to treat behavior disorders. The experts have noticed that the spinner actually massages the fingers thus improving blood circulation and in turn calming down the senses and relaxing the child to a certain level. When this happens before an exam or a test, it becomes highly beneficial.

There are several parents who prefer giving these kinds of toys to their kids so that they keep themselves away from electronic devices like mobile phones, tables or even laptops. It does not keep your child in one place as it helps them to move around and at the same time concentrate on it to prolong the spinning. At least, it does not harm your kids in anyway nor does it affect their eyes like being hooked to the smart devices.

With 3D printers out these days, there are kids using it to make the fidget spinners themselves. This has been proven to be a great development in physics for the kids with which the teachers and parents are happy about.

Technology in the Office

New age office technology features computer accessories which have revolutionized the way we work with computers. Businessmen and corporate enterprises have found that owning a laptop or a desktop computer alone wouldn’t suffice. There are a lot of complementary components that need to go along with them to establish a full-fledged working environment.

Computer accessories aid in getting better results. They have specific purposes and benefits. Take for instance a situation where you find it difficult to view your laptop screen; you can always opt for a laptop raiser to adjust its height to your specific needs. This eliminates the constant need for bending and helps you maintain a proper posture, thereby avoiding back related ailments. Similarly, a notebook arm lets you adjust the positioning of the laptop for easy handling. This is best suited for labs and offices where there is space constraint and people are constantly on the move.

Advanced office technology solutions include the latest computer accessories, which have made the experience of working more pleasurable. Unlike earlier, when stress was a major factor affecting efficiency, today we have comfortable, anti-stress components that ease computer usage. These include gel based wrist-rest (keyboard) and mouse pads which help reduce pressure from long duration typing and handling of the mouse.

Computer monitor accessories are among the most sought after office technology solutions. Monitors emit harmful radiation and the constant glare affects our eyes. The use of anti-glare radiation filters on the monitor helps computer workaholics attain relief from headaches and watery eyes.

For corporates and big businesses, computer network accessories are definitely a boon. It is convenient to establish a computer network with the right accessories than having to run about for one thing or the other.

In an effort to ensure state-of-the-art office technology, manufacturers introduce innovative computer accessories on a regular basis. You can find cleaning kits for printers and monitors, CD/DVD lens cleansers, toolkit, computer stands and a lot more. There are many discount computer accessories stores which offer competitive pricing.

Technology and Need

Throughout my life I have tried not to go so far into technology. It is obvious that technology is not my thing and it has never been. But what happens when the children begin to appear and with them the world opens wide to thousands of ideas and new practices?

Once I was in a consultation for the pediatrician, I was sitting next to me, a lady about 45 years old, we were both waiting for the same doctor. Suddenly, and with a cell phone in his hand he looks at me and starts a chat with me, that I’m not very sociable.

-What this thing from Facebook tells me… with a face of not understanding too much. And the talk continues, that more than conversation was a monologue. Have not you read about the atrocities that are done through this network? He asks me, and I with a smile and shaking my head I say no. Many people with fake personalities, changed names and others are talking and engaging in conversations and even reaching children and teenagers. How exposed our children are, and for this there is no sex, no matter the girl or child.

-Already telling me this, I began to pay more attention to him and said, therefore, to all the parents that I could, I urge you to learn to use technology and accompany your children who are their friends in the networks and who know their Friendships that today are not only flesh and blood but also virtual and very dangerous.

I believe that after this comment, there has been nothing in my life that I have looked for more and with more interest than to approach the technology, which incidentally, is a continuous research but that is so easy to reach.

I remember that before, we only had to attend a library to access the information or go to the home of people who have had the purchasing power to buy them on a particular subject.

Today with a cell phone and an internet connection, we have all the information at the fingertips. When I sit down and think about it, I find the reason for those famous words… There is no better teacher than need.

The thirst to know in what things and our young people and children make that the parents investigate and we are experts in diverse subjects. It is a challenge that we must face as we have done to be parents, but at this moment is when we realize that they are a world different from ours.

Technology and Teaching

With today’s technological advancement, there is a race against time for classroom teachers to avail of the power of technology in delivering knowledge and all to their learners. If some of them are not adept at using technology in the classroom, chances are learners are in disadvantaged in learning against the ones who have been learning through the aid of technology.

This is why, during summer, teachers are trained to become knowledgeable in using technology in the classroom. In fact, just recently, selected teachers harnessed their skills in using Microsoft Mix, Sway, Prezi, to mention just a few. Expected output from said trainings would be for teachers to create lessons– for effective and efficient delivery, learners will surely be motivated to learn and teachers themselves will be more inspired to teach with high impact, both through presentation and assessment purposes.

To ensure global education for their learners, a creative and would-be technology savvy classroom teacher must have the following prerequisite skills:

First, booting up and shutting down desktop computer or laptop.

Second, doing necessary navigation–from using the cursor or arrow up, down or what.

Third, setting up a projector.

Fourth, making slides for presentation purposes.

Fifth, recording voice or videos.

Sixth, writing an email.

Seventh, making an interesting lesson out of the competencies required for learners to master and by taking advantage of the tremendous sources of information around the net so as to create interesting, fun and meaningful lesson presentation..

Last, presenting lessons using technology with high impact. Here, how teachers present themselves, the lessons and all to their learners. could either inspire them to learn more or discourage to pursue. From standing in front, manner of speaking, manner of emphasizing a point or preparing learners to the highlights of their lesson, wrapping up and motivating them to do something for extension activities– such important showmanship could really spell the difference between success and failure in getting across the wisdom they wanted to get absorbed by their learners.
