Impact on the Environment, Learning Analyitcs

I agree with this article, people should get the best of the best.  But if people can't get what they want, then maybe they can get something in between the best and what they currently have.  This article relates to our article because it is also about analytics.  This has to do with the Horizon report and our class because we need to use technology properly, and we need to learn to use it better especially when it becomes more advanced.

Impact on the Environment, Learning Analyitcs

I agree with this article more than the other two for sure.  This is actually about the nature of things and I was hoping to find one on nature.  This is about analytics and the affect it has on the environment.  It has to do with the computer class because it helps us understand the role technology has not only in the cities, but in the wild as well.

Impact on the Environment, Learning Analyitcs

            I agree with this article, because I believe companies need to be more computerized.  Since the Internet is where all the action is in the new century, then the only way to stay on top is to be more digital and keep ahead of your opponents.  This article relates to our project because it is about analytics, also it relates to my topic because it has to do with the work environment.  The Horizon Report and my topic have to do with teaching us how to properly research for…

Smart Grid-Internet of Things

The article that I just took notes on is a good one since it is about how companies can gain better insight and have a better focus on their goals.  I agree with this article because it can change the outlook of businesses and corporations.  The smart grid article relates to the Global Project since it is related to new technology.  Smart grids are definitely new technology of the 21st century.  The Horizon Report mentions Smart Grid technology a few times…

Internet of Things-Internet of Things

This article seems very interesting to me.  I agree with this article because the small radio microchips have impacted the society in a good way and it lets companies track their products whenever they are sold. This

also helps to make sure none of any company’s products are stolen.  This article is related to our project and the assigned topic because it deals with smart sensors and the internet of things.  The smart sensors in this article are the radio microchip.  The Horizon Report…

Flext Point Sensor Systems-Internet of Things

            I agree with this article.  The smart shoe sensors seem pretty smart and accurate since they keep out mud, rain, etc.  I would like to see one of these smart shoe sensors in action.  I think it would be pretty school to use one of the sensors.  The thing about these sensors is that I’m sure they cost a ton of money.   This article relates to our project and my topic since The Internet of Things (topic in the Horizon Report) mentions smart sensors, smart grids, etc.  The Global…

Impact on the environment Internet of things

I agree  with this article because I think that in the future this will help everyone around the world.  It could approve the speed it would take to restore the power.  I think that is good that he is slowly starting to upgrade the grid because most people won't know the little changes but they would notice a big change.  This will become more user friendly over time.  It relates to my project and topic because it has to do with how the world and the environment is affected.  It is about the…

impact of the environment, The internet of things

I agree with this article because it has good points on how everything is growing bigger and faster from last year.  They have to keep up with everything that is happening around the world.  Also, almost everyone uses some kind of technology once in a while.  I agree with them saying smartphones still dominate the sector in terms of sales because everyone has a cell phone.  it relates to my topic because it has to do with how its affection our world which is our environment.  Also, it has…

Horizon Report Findings

The horizon report has many interesting things i haven't thought about yet. First, the increased use of hybrid learning designs are rising rapidly. The increased familiarity of teachers and students with the internet has led to many new learning designs. These new designs allow for even more student to student interaction. However some people feel that blended learning is disruptive I think the pros outweigh the cons.

Another thing I found to be a main concept…

Horizon Report

I didn't realize how big of a project this is.  This project has a huge impact on future education.  This project studies the best possible way for kids to learn and absorb information.  This project is what we need to move education forward.

It all starts with technology and the age you start it at.  I have seen from kids that my mom babysits that they are picking up on how to use technology faster than I did by years.  everything is natural to these young kids and they know how to…
