Foursquare Tops 15 Million Users Christopher Heine | December 5, 2011 | 0 Comments inShare126 Growth opportunities continue, as lion's share of smartphone users have yet to adopt geo-social. Foursquare now has 15 million users, tripling its base since this time last year. The New York-based tech company revealed the stats to ClickZ News in a pair of emails today. That said, all signs point to a thinning herd. Facebook claims to reach 350 million users globally, but doesn't break out installs of its mobile app, which prominently includes location-based check-ins.

Part 1: Flipping The Classroom? … 12 Resources To Keep You On Your Feet Welcome to another post rich in resources. If you have come here looking for links that will guide you to videos and multimedia to use in a Flipped Classroom that is coming in a future post. Perhaps you have tried a little Flip of your own and want to learn more. If you are beginning to investigate what a Flipped Classroom is, with the thought of possibly trying some kind of Flip yourself… then this is also the right place. I have researched and tried to find you the very best resources to get educators in all positions thinking about what a Flipped Classroom” really is”? Many educators are beginning to become aware of the growing teaching method referred to as “Flipping The Classroom”. You see, at first this definition does make a lot of sense, and like so many “best practices” I see great value in the idea. Yes, I am a proponent of incorporating various multimedia and online learning in a blended environment. The Twelve Resources To Better Understand Flipping the Classroom Like this:

How Khan Academy Is Changing the Rules of Education | Wired Magazine Matthew Carpenter, age 10, has completed 642 inverse trigonometry problems at Joe Pugliese “This,” says Matthew Carpenter, “is my favorite exercise.” I peer over his shoulder at his laptop screen to see the math problem the fifth grader is pondering. It’s an inverse trigonometric function: cos-1(1) = ? Carpenter, a serious-faced 10-year-old wearing a gray T-shirt and an impressive black digital watch, pauses for a second, fidgets, then clicks on “0 degrees.” Carpenter, who attends Santa Rita Elementary, a public school in Los Altos, California, shouldn’t be doing work anywhere near this advanced. But last November, Thordarson began using Khan Academy in her class. Initially, Thordarson thought Khan Academy would merely be a helpful supplement to her normal instruction. “I’m able to give specific, pinpointed help when needed,” she says. The result is that Thordarson’s students move at their own pace. Khan’s videos are anything but sophisticated. Not everyone agrees.

edX - Home Programs Pre history Before there were frequent-flyer programs, there were (remember?) Raleigh cigarette coupons and S&H Green Stamps. Before such primitive loyalty programs could develop into what we now know as FFPs, two events had to occur: Deregulation (1978) created the marketing environment. Absent either of the above, FFPs probably would be unnecessary (assuming a regulated airline industry) or impossible (without the computer-tracking mechanisms which make such large-scale customer tracking possible). The Beginning In May 1981, American Airlines (AA) introduced AAdvantage, the first FFP. The tactic, specifically, called for tracking members’ flown miles (as a measure of their revenue contribution to the company), and awarding members free tickets & upgrades (the rewards). A little background… AA had compiled a database (through its Sabre computer reservations system) of 150,000 of its best customers. Enter the Hotels In the beginning, hotels were partners in airline programs. The Converts Costs

Risk management Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks (defined in ISO 31000 as the effect of uncertainty on objectives) followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events[1] or to maximize the realization of opportunities. The strategies to manage threats (uncertainties with negative consequences) typically include transferring the threat to another party, avoiding the threat, reducing the negative effect or probability of the threat, or even accepting some or all of the potential or actual consequences of a particular threat, and the opposites for opportunities (uncertain future states with benefits). Introduction[edit] A widely used vocabulary for risk management is defined by ISO Guide 73, "Risk management. Risk management also faces difficulties in allocating resources.

Tyranny Of Words - Stuart Chase Stuart Chase (1888-1985) Born in Somersworth, New Hampshire was an American economist and engineer trained at MIT. His writings covered topics as diverse as general semantics and physical economy. His hybrid background of engineering and economics places him in the same philosophical camp as R. Buckminster Fuller. It has been suggested that he was the originator of the expression a New Deal, which became identified with the economic programs of American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt. APP OF THE DAY: Nike+ GPS review (iPhone) One of the greatest changes that the MP3 revolution brought about was how easy it became to run with music. Tape players were huge, CD players skipped, MP3 players, well, they became portable, lightweight, convenient. The idea of carrying a device with you whilst running is now acceptable - mainstream even. With phones now being lighter and smarter, it's no surprise to see the iPhone strapped to the arm of many runners. Nike+ GPS Platform iPhone Price Where iTunes Nike+ is a system based around collecting your running stats. A Nike+ account is free and you can sign up at any time over on the website, but the app will cost you £1.49 to buy. The app is pretty simple. The app is cleanly designed with the landing page displaying how many miles or kilometres you've covered. You are presented with three basic options to get you started. With Nike+ being a social community, this is core to the way Nike+ works. The app keeps things fairly simple however.
