Think you really know Geography? Geoguessr is an online game that uses Google’s Street View. With a small map in the corner of Google’s Street View, you pin where you think the Street View scene is. You then submit your guess and the distance from the real location is measured. It’s an excellent way to travel and view the world.
Give it a shot. I just couldn’t bring myself to show one of the answers. Visit GeoGuessr.
We were looking for a solution to several classrooms that are completely wireless and needed an access point that could handle the traffic and any interference. With the growing trend of BYOD, classrooms easily double and triple in their infrastructure demands.
Also knowing that professional access points cost money as compared to home access points and routers; the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7300 Series wireless access point ranked number one in a majority of tests and was our pick. Retailing a little over $500, this access point handles dozens of computers and BYOD devices with no problems.
With computers loaded with iTunes, BYOD devices (netbooks, laptops, smartphones, smart TVs, iPads and Android devices), our IT team could see the need to upgrade to devices that allowed multiple connections to our internal network.
Sixty-six percent of those polled use free file-sharing platforms and, among these, 55 percent do so without alerting their IT departments. Without knowing which tools are being deployed within their organizations, IT administrators risk corporate assets, sensitive information and intellectual property being distributed, modified and stored without authorization. In some cases, this can result in violations of national and international laws regarding data security, transparency and privacy. (shared by addthis) Read more
As an IT professional, it can become a logistical nightmare when BYOD is allowed in an organization. BYOD works in education by giving students that extra resource when completing homework or taking notes. Reasons why BYOD needs to be monitored.

The human anatomy can be viewed with Google Labs – Body Browser. I stumbled on this at school today while doing research on Chrome. Google Labs’ Body Browser requires a browser with WebGL support (basically 3D on the web). I downloaded Google’s Chrome beta and was amazed to see how smooth this application worked. With a menu that can slowly cut away the different layers of the human body, it is a great educational tool. An excellent search tool is available that allows you to zoom in on the different parts of the body and virtually see inside the body.
