Children are growing up in a digital world, so technology is embedded in their lives. Toy laptops, mobile phones and keyboards are available for children to explore and incorporate into their play. As technology for young children proliferates, educators and parents wonder if, when, and how to use it appropriately to support early development.

The most effective use of technology in an early childhood setting involves the application of tools and materials to enhance children’s learning and development, interactions, communication, and collaboration. As technology increasingly finds its way into mainstream culture, the types and uses of technology in early childhood programs have also expanded dramatically to include computers, tablets, e-books, mobile devices, handheld gaming devices, digital cameras and video camcorders, electronic toys, multimedia players for music and videos, digital audio recorders, interactive whiteboards, software applications, the Internet, streaming media, and more.

Children need to understand when these technologies are used and for what purposes, so using them together, talking about what you are doing, answering questions and following your child’s interests will support their understanding. Many technologies are really good to work with together: taking photographs together, finding websites on a laptop, experimenting with electronic keyboards, trying out the functions on mobile phones can be fun activities that give children a sense of the possibilities of the media as well as an introduction to the competencies they will need to develop as citizens of the 21st century.

In small groups, discuss the earliest memory you have of using digital technology in your own work or school setting. Technology is often used in families for the opportunities it offers for enhanced communication. Children see phones used by people around them, on TV programmes and in photos. Many children have toy mobiles or pick up adults’ phones to engage in role-play. You’ll probably recognise your tone of voice and body language in these imaginary conversations .

The Path does not provide the setting for this unit and turn on Android is also not provided specific settings to change the unit of temperature.

But you do not need to fear, because to change the display temperature to Fahrenheit temperatures found in the language setting. Display temperature in Fahrenheit turns out to follow the language setting default Android which refers to “English (United States) United States indeed uses the default temperature units Fahrenheit.

So you just change the choice of other languages that support the use of units of Celsius. Enter the menu “Settings” and then “Language & input” and select “Indonesian Language” or “English (United Kingdom)” when the display interface of Android you want to remain in the United Kingdom. Easy right?


Top Navigation Apps for Smartphone

November 11th, 2014


Maybe you’re already know and using about Waze. For those who aren’t familiar with Waze, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about the app. Waze is one of the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation apps. Motorists all around the world use Waze to share real-time traffic and road information, in order to save each other time and fuel. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money on their daily commute.

Waze offers voice-guided GPS navigation with turn-by-turn directions. But what’s really unique about the app is its social layer: Waze’s active community of users share real-time traffic and road information. That means it gives you a heads-up about reported obstacles on your route (e.g. road closures, accidents, police traps), and can then redirect you to your destination.

After typing in their destination address, users just drive with the app open on their phone to passively contribute traffic and other road data. Waze provides turn-by-turn voice navigation along with real-time traffic alerts and other location-specific information, while simultaneously sending the user’s speed and location back to its database for use in calculating drive times. Users can also report accidents, speed traps, or any other hazards along the way, as well as fuel prices when they stop for gas.

Waze’s greatest appeal is its social and gamification features. Users earn points whenever they contribute road information, and as points rack up, their ranking in the Waze community rises. Waze is more socially driven, however, and even shows other Wazers’ locations on the map display. Waze’s social media interface allows users to connect their Facebook and Foursquare accounts and link up with friends.

World’s first PC with 3D Projector HP Sprout

November 8th, 2014

You probably already know that PC-art today, the latest Apple iMac with 5 k resolution Retina screen is indeed worthy of being the winner. HP introduces its newest PC desktop innovation named HP sprouts. Without everyday we realize we live in a digital ecosystem. On the basis of digital ecosystems this is HP Sprout designed. With a series of technologies and features its own HP is expected to Sprout can be a versatile computing machine to simplify workflow users.

There is one thing that is interesting for you to know that the progress of a technology greatly influence in people’s live. Sprout not equipped HP keyboard and mouse. As his successor, HP has provided a workmat or a special interactive surface at the location of the keyboard. HP relies on the Workmat and 3D Projectors. The surface is capable of responding to a 20 point fingers simultaneously with the support of various gestures such as pinching or command sweeps the screen. So to use HP Sprout, you must adopt to be able to work virtually via the touch screen or the existing workmat.

The Workmat served to capture a projected visual projections by DLP Projector module. Projector module that is mounted in the top of the screen is at a glance it looks like table lamp. Behind the Projector , there is a technology HP and Intel 3D RealSense Illuminator. In addition, there is also a 14.6-megapixel resolution camera and the LED light.

With the support of 3D technology, the camera can RealSense used to scan objects in 2 dimensional or 3 dimensional. The trick, place the object to be scanned on the workmat then run scan application. Soon the result will then appear on the screen or can be directly manipulated and workmat on screen or on the workmat with the help of special applications.

A Great Home Entertainment

November 3rd, 2014


Imagine coming home after work and pushing one button that adjusts the lighting for your entire house. The lights go on in the kitchen and living room, maybe your bedroom and select hallways, and the drapes lower throughout the house. With so much technology to pack into our homes these days, we’re always looking for examples that manage to house their gadgets in good balance-avoiding overbearing towers of black boxes and a spaghetti junction of wires. But the concept of the “house of the future” wasn’t just structural. It also encompassed all of the new technology that would lie inside: video chatting instead of rotary-dial phones, robots to do our housework, and a few buttons we could push to control just about everything.Alas, our homes still aren’t the technological wonders we’d dreamed about.

This home, belonging to Blu Ray community user TheForce, has an utterly enviable collection of big boys toys that merge with the contemporary interior without appearing jarring.  Setting up a home theater system doesn’t have to be, though. In fact, it can be quite easy. No matter what gear you have, this guide should help you get everything set up correctly. Even if your system is already connected, it’s probably worth skimming this article to make sure it’s connected right. You may not be getting the most out of your system and not even know it.

As TV sets have gotten thinner and thinner, there is less space for speakers, so sound quality in the sets themselves has inevitably been compromised.  These days, going to the theater can sometimes mean staying home, where advanced home theater systems come complete with large-screen TVs, professional-quality sound systems, and seating that can rival or top that of “real” theaters. Another technology changing the nature of home entertainment is digital radio signals and the equipment that capture them.To take advantage of these signals, consumers need HD radio-enabled receivers, which are becoming the norm in both homes and cars. The technology is making its way into mobile devices, as well.

Great Auto Technology

November 2nd, 2014


Today, auto technology on sale allows cars to “see” all around, gathering data on possible roadway concerns and giving drivers eyes in the back of their heads. Technological improvements in computers, smartphones, wireless communications and the cloud have converged to advance safety for connected consumers. Connectivity and the internet are changing the world of autos, and more change is coming.

Rear-mounted radar

Backing out of a parking space in a busy lot can be an adventure. Although rear-pointing radar has been around for a few years alerting drivers to unseen objects immediately behind them — a fence, wall, tree or another vehicle — new radar technology searches for approaching cross traffic. It includes visual indicators in the outboard mirrors.

Automatic high-beam control

System automatically illuminates and dims the high-beam headlights in relation to approaching traffic. A camera mounted on the rear view mirror detects when the vehicle is closing in on oncoming traffic, as well as vehicles ahead traveling in the same direction, and disengages the high beams. It also dims the high beams for sharp turns and then re-engages the high beams if there is no approaching traffic once the turn is completed.

Night vision with pedestrian detection

The new system pinpoints pedestrians, highlighting them on a dashboard display. System with a pedestrian identifier that also shows the direction the pedestrian is moving. As the distance closes between pedestrian and vehicle, a warning appears on the night vision monitor as well as the head-up display on the windshield if so equipped.

GPS vehicle tracking

It is a GPS tracking system that updates a vehicle’s position every 10 seconds. Watching it live requires only Internet access. Small and portable, the tracking device can be moved from vehicle to vehicle. It can also alert parents through their cell phone if the vehicle’s preset speed threshold is exceeded or if the vehicle enters/exits certain areas.

How it Works Wind Turbines

November 2nd, 2014


A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical power. A wind turbine used for charging batteries may be referred to as a wind charger. Wind energy technologies use the energy in wind for practical purposes such as generating electricity, charging batteries, pumping water, and grinding grain.

Today’s wind turbines are manufactured, The smallest turbines are used for applications such as battery charging for auxiliary power for boats or caravans or to power traffic warning signs. Most wind energy technologies can be used as stand-alone applications, connected to a utility power grid, or even combined with a photovoltaic system. For utility-scale sources of wind energy, a large number of turbines are usually built close together to form a wind farm that provides grid power. Several electricity providers use wind farms to supply power to their customers.

Wind energy can be produced anywhere in the world where the wind blows with a strong and consistent force. Windier locations produce more energy, which lowers the cost of producing electricity. How It Works?

  • Wind is captured at the top of the funnel shaped system. The omnidirectional intake area allows wind collection from any direction
  • Wind is funneled through the system
  • Wind is concentrated and further accelerated in the Venturi Effect* section system.  The Venturi effect is the phenomenon that occurs when a fluid that is flowing through a pipe is forced through a narrow section, resulting in a pressure decrease and a velocity increase.
  • Wind is delivered to the turbine/generators to convert the accelerated wind to electrical power.

The majority of wind turbines consist of three blades mounted to a tower made from tubular steel. There are less common varieties with two blades, or with concrete or steel lattice towers. At 100 feet or more above the ground, the tower allows the turbine to take advantage of faster wind speeds found at higher altitudes.
