This post is part of Mashable's Spark of Genius series, which highlights a unique feature of startups. If you would like to have your startup considered for inclusion, please see the details here. The series is made possible by Microsoft BizSpark. Name: Pearltrees Quick Pitch: Pearltrees is a new visual way to organize content on the Web and connecting people's interests. Genius Idea: How do you organize the web on the browser? Signing up for Pearltrees is simple, but getting used to the interface and all of its features is not as easy. Now for the organization part: you can create complex systems of pearls, known as pearltrees. Clicking on a pearl gives you a range of options that go beyond visiting your favorite website. Pearltrees takes a time investment to make it useful.

HOW TO SURVIVE MARTIAL LAW This article will start off assuming that the Reader is already subject to MARTIAL LAW; that is, the "suspension" of the Constitution. Curfews, rationing of basic goods, enforced relocations, confiscation of firearms and supplies, and summary arrest/execution by soldiers, paramilitary police and other jack booted types wielding assault rifles. Basic survival tips will be followed with some detailed ideas on how this country should be run once we take over. IF you're reading this before MARTIAL LAW is imposed by the current corrupt government, and IF you are reading this while you still nominally under Constitutional Law, it's urgent you read from the beginning to end so as to appreciate the opportunities you currently have to not only protect yourself and yours, but to attempt to stop all of this from ever happening. Rule #1 Never take the government's word at face value-except when they tell you that they'll kill you. Rule #2 KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT! Rule #8 AVOID A GOVERNMENT ROUNDUP.

Article extrait de la revue Inter CDI N¬∞ 233 Objets nomades en classe : nouveaux objets, nouveaux usages Qui aurait pu prétendre à l’explosion des SMS, au départ destinés à l’échange d’informations purement techniques entre ingénieurs ou techniciens ? Comment prévoir les usages qu’en feront les générations à venir en fonction des progrès techniques de plus en plus rapides ? Dans le monde de l’éducation, nous nous interrogeons sur les aspects pédagogiques : quels usages pédagogiques de l’objet nomade de l’élève peuvent être envisagés ? Comment aussi, avec d’autres appareils, proposer une autre approche de la relation aux savoirs passant par d’autres pratiquesau sein de la classe ? L’accord passé entre la société France Télécom Orange et le CRDP de Paris nous a permis de bénéficier d’un prêt d’une douzaine de tablettes électroniques de la marque Samsung, modèle Galaxy Tab. À l’aide de la version numérisée des quotidiens, les élèves ont tout d’abord parcouru l’actualité du jour. ET DEMAIN ? Notes Réagissez à cet article

What's a team? A team within Pearltrees is a group of people who have come together to collaboratively curate a common interest. When you want to join a team, just click on the “team up” button to send a request. As soon as your request has been accepted, you’ll be able to curate the pearltree with the other team members. Each member can add and organize the pearls and pearltrees of the team. Each member can also decide to accept or invite other members to expand the team. The founder has some privileges : he can express his objectives for the pearltree to the team in the editorial panel, and he’s the only one who can create subteams.

Li-Fi Li-1st, the first Li-Fi equipment Li-Fi, as coined by Prof. Harald Haas during his TED Global talk,[1] is bidirectional, high speed and fully networked wireless communications, like Wi-Fi, using light. Li-Fi is a subset of optical wireless communications (OWC) and can be a complement to RF communication (Wi-Fi or Cellular network), or a replacement in contexts of data broadcasting. It is wireless and uses visible light communication or infra-red and near ultraviolet (instead of radio frequency waves), part of Optical wireless communications technology, which carries much more information, and has been proposed as a solution to the RF-bandwidth limitations.[2] A complete solution includes an industry led standardization process. Technology details[edit] Visible light communications (VLC) works by switching bulbs on and off within nanoseconds,[6] which is too quickly to be noticed by the human eye. History[edit] Standards[edit] The standard defines three PHY layers with different rates:

Les MOOC changeront-ils les règles de jeu? | Contact North Dans toutes les discussion au sujet des systèmes de gestion de l'apprentissage (SGA), des ressources éducatives ouvertes (REO), des cours en ligne largement ouverts (massive open online courses, ou MOOC) et des avantages et défis de l’apprentissage en ligne, les enjeux les plus cruciaux sont peut-être ceux qui touchent la manière dont la technologie change notre façon d’enseigner et, plus important encore, la manière dont les étudiantes et étudiants apprennent. Faute d’avoir un meilleur terme pour le désigner, nous appelons cela la « pédagogie ». Il est évident que les changements majeurs dans la manière dont nous enseignons aux étudiantes et étudiants du niveau postsecondaire sont déclenchés par l’apprentissage en ligne et les nouvelles technologies, qui augmentent la flexibilité et l’accès à l’égard de l’éducation postsecondaire. Mais cela n’est que la première étape. Quels sont les moteurs du développement de cette nouvelle pédagogie? Les nouvelles demandes d’une société du savoir 1.

Visible Light Communication devices ready for commercialization Outstanding Technology has developed two commercial products using visible light communication technology, using LED lights to transmit data. These are a location service for smartphones, called the Commulight System, and a visible light transceiver, the TR01. The Commulight System consists of a receiver that plugs into a smartphone or tablet, and LED lights with a built-in transmitter. The receiving device obtains IDs emitted by the LED lights, enabling it to download content relevant to the user's location. The receiver is available in two types, one that connects via USB, and one that connects via the headphone jack. "The most obvious application for this system is guiding visitors in galleries and museums. "Positioning services using indoor GPS and wireless communication already exist. Using light from LEDs instead of radio signals also makes it possible to communicate in tunnels and factories, where radio reception can be difficult.

Jeux éducatifs en ligne How to avoid getting trapped in FEMA camps By James Smith I wrote a news story recently called “How technology will send you to hell in the FEMA camps” It was wildly popular and raised the question in my mind, “How do I prevent my family from going to the camps?” The first thing is to know what to expect before hand. While people think about the dollar dropping to nothing, or an Obama re-election, you need to consider the most pressing signs of a pending martial law. How pending? About 15 minutes or less away from being put into a bus. Now there are people who would look forward to 3 hots and a cot. But we aren’t those people. So what do we look for? Using the backbone of a military operation, you must make the enemy (that would be you) deaf, dumb, and blind. What does that mean? Deaf means that you won’t know what is going on. Dumb, or mute, means you won’t be able to call anyone, tweet, post a Facebook update, send an email of warning. Your neighborhood is now deaf, dumb, and blind. You need to buy yourself some time.

Crée ton FabLab : jeu coopératif pour mieux comprendre les fab labs Une équipe de 3 étudiantes en licence professionnelle des métiers de l’édition à l’IUT de La Roche-sur-Yon (Noémie Mouchet, Adeline Fraissange et Mélanie Magourou) ont conçu et réalisé le jeu à imprimer Crée ton FabLab pour faire découvrir les fab labs aux jeunes de 8-15 ans, notamment dans le cadre d’ateliers d’animation. Pour ce projet innovant, le blog MEDIT moi un FabLab a été créé. Cet espace Web montre l’avancement de ce projet dans un but de partage (avec un contenu diffusé sous licence Creative Commons CC-BY-SA). Fiches et tutoriels viennent compléter ce blog. Jeu d’équipe en coopération pour créer un fab lab Le jeu Crée Ton FabLab (à partir de 8 ans, pour 2 à 8 joueurs), jeu de plateau coopératif à imprimer, est disponible depuis le 10 mars 2013 dans une version 1.0. Objectif du jeu « Les joueurs ont un objectif commun à atteindre : regrouper les éléments indispensables au bon fonctionnement d’un FabLab (matériel et réputation) et ce dans le temps imparti par le contexte.
