5 ways technology in the classroom helps students learn

5 ways technology in the classroom helps students learn

It’s not always easy to keep students engaged with their lessons. Traditional classroom lectures may be boring for some students, and for others, they simply don’t offer enough time to grapple with difficult concepts.

In order for schools to take full advantage of the benefits of technology, teachers must know how to successfully integrate technology into their classrooms —…

Monitoring apps: A digital solution to a digital problem

We are living in the digital age where everything can be done online. Admittedly, it has made our lives a whole lot easier, but going digital has also introduced a bunch of new problems, especially for the children.

Not a lot of parents are acquainted with modern technology, which is why…

$1 billion bank hacking ring shows the importance of proper controls and software testing

It seems like every few months a story hits the news of a massive public company being hacked. The story that recently hit the news takes the cake. A bank hacking ring in Russia may have stolen up to $1 billion from over 100 banks in 30 countries.

By then having access to the banks’ systems, they were able to perform tasks like causing ATMs to dispense cash, monitor employee activities, and enter transactions in the banks’ records. They…

The perfect mechanical keyboard is here

The perfect mechanical keyboard is here

The keyboard is probably the most ubiquitous piece of computer hardware because you use it the most and it remains your main link to the world of computers. Despite this, it has remained unaltered for many years and generally ignored except for a small community of enthusiastic users who design and built their own keyboards. One example of this is the Infinity Keyboard, a new mechanical keyboard which has been created by the collective efforts and involvement of more than 1,300 people.

One of the major motivators for many companies to switch to data centers and cloud computing is the environmental benefits. By sharing space with other companies, and relying on providers to manage infrastructure, not only can organizations save money, but also they can reduce their carbon footprint via reduced energy consumption and reduced usage of resources (i.e., fewer resources in building equipment). Despite all of the green benefits of shifting to colocation, though, there is still more that data centers can do to improve their environmental friendliness. By doing so, not only do they protect the Earth, but they can also…

Sexualization of robots in movies, growing trend or just a fad?

Sexualization of robots in movies, growing trend or just a fad?

The recent movie Ex Machina is a good thriller but has once again raised disturbing questions about using female robots as the means of male sexual fantasies. This is not the first time that female androids or robots have been conceptualised as attractive women and therefore featuring them in the role. The worst of these science-fiction movies typecast these female robots as existing for the pleasure of men and are programmed for these urges. For instance, in Dr Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine, they dance in suggestive gold bikinis and, in Westworld, they are traded as if they were second-hand…
