How cool would it have been to be able to draw, write, and learn directly onto my own computer? As the years went on, people theorized that laptops would take over the classroom, but the price of these devices was too high for a 1 to 1 ratio. It never quite caught on in lower grade schools.

An Introduction to the Front Controller Pattern, Part 1 It’s interesting to see how people have passed judgement on several software programming concepts in an anthropomorphic fashion. Fat models are all sweet and good, bloated controllers are evil, and singletons are fraught with untameable pitfalls. But the critics don’t stop there; some are now grumbling about newer concepts that have recently made inroads in day-to-day PHP development, saying Front Controllers are a redundant “reinvention of the wheel” which should be discarded ipso facto. Period. Pitching blame against singletons from time to time, and even being a bit cranky about fat controllers is, to some extent, a fairly predictable and healthy reaction.

How to Convert PDF to EPUB? Are you new to PDF and EPUB? Converting PDF to ePUB There are different e-book file formats and PDF is one of the e-book file formats which is independent of computer operating system, hardware or software. Computer operating system controls how computer hardware and software work whereas computer hardware are the visible parts of a computer such as the screen and the keyboard, computer software are application programs that control how computer hardware operate such as increasing brightness on the screen. PDFs are therefore readable on many computer devices since their readability doesn’t depend on computer software, hardware or Operating Systems.
10 addictive browser instruments for making music on your lunch break Make Music is FACT’s new section devoted to making music anywhere, whether you’re a seasoned producer or a total novice, using an arsenal of analog gear or just your iPhone. There may be a time when you find yourself separated from your familiar tools with a musical itch to scratch. Scott Wilson picks some of the best drum machines, synths and samplers you can use by loading up a web browser. Web browsers have come a long way since the dark days of Internet Explorer. You may not know it, but your browser is now a surprisingly powerful tool for musicians thanks to the Web Audio API, a system that usurps dated Flash plug-ins and allows developers to build synths and other musical tools. As long as you have access to an up-to-date browser (preferably Google Chrome),you can create a drum loop, make chiptune music or bang out some acid house.
Open Source LMS – 10 Alternatives to Moodle Since the economic downturn began I’ve noticed much more interest in open source Learning Management Systems (LMS), and it’s no surprise that when people ask what the options are, the answer is usually Moodle. Now, there’s nothing wrong with Moodle, but it certainly isn’t the only open source LMS out there. Because there is no licensing cost involved with open source solutions, its easy for organisations to just jump in and set up the first solution that comes along. There is however a cost to installation and support, either financial or time related. Anyone setting up an LMS has a responsibility to research and choose the solution that is right for the learners and the organisation.
How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom From 8th January – 22nd March I chose one class, my First Year class (aged 11-12) to give up using exercise books, reading books and textbooks. Instead, they would use only digital mediums that were available to them through an iPad that they were supplied with during each lesson. We are now at the halfway point of this test, and I wanted to reflect a little on what I have found so far. The first stumbling block was the fact that the iPads that they had access to were not theirs to take home – they were issued at the start of each lesson and collected in at the end.
