Nokia N8 To Get Early UK Release On 23rd September It looks like an eager Nokia employee has jumped the gun and given an early release date for the Nokia N8, citing September 23rd as the date Nokia customers can head over to Nokia Online and grab their new smartphone a week before general release. NokNok.tv got the scoop, one of its readers spotting a Google Adword associated to a specific Nokia N8 search, saying the N8 would be “In-Stock, Ready For Dispatch 23rd Sept – 1 Week Before Anyone Else”. The N8 is equipped with an impressive 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon Flash, featuring a larger sensor to capture clearer and more detailed photos. The N8 has a 3.5 inch HD touchscreen and will allow handset owners to record HD videos and edit them using an inbuilt editing suite on the device. With Dolby Digital Plus surround sound HD content can be consumed on the device or boradcast on a HDTV by way of a HDMI Out connector.

Last year I was invited to talk to a group of school students aged 16-18 years on the subject of keeping yourself safe in online social networks. An easy task, you might imagine, except that it has two main difficulties. If you look at it from the teens’ point of view, they’re probably thinking that here comes yet another old fuddy-duddy telling us not to post photos of ourselves online. The temptation is to win them over by telling them not to worry, and to just get on with it. That would please them, no doubt, but E-Safety from a Self-Management Perspective

Google for teaching adults how to describe statistics | Kalinago English Google is just so useful, isn't it? But did you know that you can get your adult Business English students looking for their own data, specifically relevant to their own interests, projects and responsibilities? For fun, drag the yearly scroll bar! This incredible site, Google Public Data Explorer, offers statistics from the World Bank, Eurostat, OECD and also includes several more country-specific-options as well (Australian Bureau of Statistics, US Bureau of Labour Statistics and much, much more). Most of the charts are completely customizable and although the fun factor, when messing about on the site trying to decide just how to present the data, is high (you can change years, colours, countries and layouts), the very real potential for pedagogical application is even higher!
Information retention from PowerPoint and traditional lectures The benefit of PowerPoint^(TM) is continuously debated, but both supporters and detractors have insufficient empirical evidence. Its use in university lectures has influenced investigations of PowerPoint's effects on student performance (e.g., overall quiz/exam scores) in comparison to lectures based on overhead projectors, traditional lectures (e.g., ''chalk-and-talk''), and online lectures. Thus far, comparisons of overall exam scores have yielded mixed results. The present study decomposes overall quiz scores into auditory, graphic, and alphanumeric scores to reveal new insights into effects of PowerPoint presentations on student performance. Analyses considered retention of lecture information presented to students without the presence of PowerPoint (i.e., traditional lecture), auditory information in the presence of PowerPoint, and visual (i.e., graphic and alphanumeric) information displayed on PowerPoint slides. Data were collected from 62 students via quiz and questionnaire.
