Students Get More With Actively Learn

Education is one of the most important aspects of who we are, but being able to get students truly engaged in reading is often difficult. Because there are different learning style and levels of comprehension, many students tend to fall behind. The purpose of Actively Learn it to create a more interactive method for students to learn that incorporates their individual pace while allowing for those who would not typically comprehend a text as quickly as others to keep up. Actively Learn is an online learning program that enables instructors to tailor reading and writing so students are able to build knowledge, recall what they have learned, and develop long-term skills.
In the past, an educator could provide individual tutoring outside of class as means of helping along struggling students. The obvious downfalls to this are that much more time is needed to do so and it is dependent on the compatibility of the tutor’s and the student’s schedules. Actively Learn keeps learning in the classroom and makes it easier for everyone to learn at the same pace. The app features mobile tech support for e-readers, tablets, and other mobile platforms as well as desktops, allowing students to use the service from anywhere.
With the app, educators can customize teaching, offer simultaneous feedback, and have constant access to analysis on student performance. Students interact with each other and receive information to fill gaps in background knowledge, making reading and writing easier through collaboration.

Actively Learn allows teachers to directly insert questions, notes and even videos into the text students are reading on mobile tech devices in the classroom. All the while, the instructor can measure the most important aspects of students’ learning, including keeping track of what the class struggles with as a whole and how much effort students are making. This way, an educator can remain up to date on every student’s progress at all times. No matter what the instructional material is, a teacher can find and add it onto any computer or mobile platform a student is learning on. This includes not only popular books, but PDFs and web articles as well!
Actively Learn brings the kind of work collaboration you would expect to find with business computer services a major company might use into a classroom setting convenient for teachers and students. The incorporation of mobile devices into classroom learning is one of the greatest benefits of our technological progress. Actively Learn helps schools to take advantage of the vast informational resources available on the internet at much faster speeds than ever before. This app is an innovative way to clearly demonstrate that no matter a student’s learning style or pace, each individual can receive the same education at the same level in ways never before possible.

10,000ft Makes Projects More Efficient

The most difficult aspects of arranging a business project can be evident right at the very beginning of the planning stages. It is important to have a strategy along with the ability to ensure the proper timing and execution in every point. The purpose behind 10,000ft is to provide a tool for managers to keep track of the many things necessary to ensure that a project remains on task. According to the app’s developers, a project manager accomplishes this through resource planning, project planning, time and expense tracking, and analytics providing detailed reports of all major elements of a venture.

The key feature of the app is organizing information that is often scattered. This includes synchronizing every detail into a user-friendly interface that everyone working on different parts of the project can always access. With 10,000ft’s project planning, a manager can make more strategic decisions based on up-to-date information. 10,000ft brings an office network support approach to management, particularly in solving the problem of certain employees being ignorant of what others are currently working on, have finished, or have yet to complete. In a dashboard that everyone can see, managers and employees add notes, a supervisor can add people to a team, and the time as well as cost is always readily available to keep everyone on task. 10,000ft makes it easier to go from research to concept to design while keeping everyone involved assessed of important details all along the way.
It is always essential for everyone to remain aware of the time and cost as well as being able to stay within the parameters set for each. 10,000ft helps a business team by informing them of how much time to give each stage with timesheets created before any actual work begins. The time and budget stay constantly updated via the innovative software, and updates are accessible via mobile device or company computer. Also helpful is the option to track time by either half days or hours and minutes. Perhaps most unique is the ability to itemize a person’s time by specific tasks like meetings or travel. The app features mobile tech support for iOS and Android, allowing employees to use the service while traveling.
10,000ft does away with the need to wait for outside financial reports or create spreadsheets. The idea is to make filtering and customization of project data fast and simple. This filtered and customized data can in turn create just as complex a report with much less work. It is easy to see why the developers would claim that this would allow you to make decisions faster and move a project forward.
The purpose of technology is to simplify our lives, and the stresses of corporate business can take their toll. 10,000ft appears to be an ideal app for the simplification of one of business’s greatest difficulties, and its potential application toward relieving workplace stress as well as optimizing all the aspects of large business projects is evident.

Shoot and Share Better Photos With Photospotland

Photography is one of the most popular hobbies worldwide, enjoyed by people everywhere no matter their level of expertise. It was also one of the first features ever to be adapted to social media. It is true that most of our mobile technology has photo taking and sharing features, but even smartphones and tablets have not yet reached the point of achieving the same quality of photographs as a high-end camera with all the equipment necessary for different conditions. Photospotland serves the needs of those who prefer using a digital camera for taking photographs rather than a mobile tech device. It is not limited merely to the photographs themselves, though. Photospotland’s creators developed the website and app in order to integrate photography, sharing, travel and community all into one easy experience.

 photo PhotoSpotLandlogo_zpsbd6712dc.png

Much of the focus of Photospotland is on how the community of photographers who utilize its service are better able to help each other. This applies in a number of ways. The social aspect really comes out to the forefront as expressed by the developers, who have communicated that one of the most essential functions is the ability of users to find and help each other when the need arises. One example given is a user’s capacity to find any other photographers in the area to which they hope to travel for the purpose of exchanging information as well as giving or receiving any aid or advice one may need while in the planning stages. While planning for a photography trip, a user could get such useful information from another user in the location they will be visiting as weather conditions, parking, potential threats, and more, all instantaneously via mobile technology. Then, if a user suffers a problem such as the breakdown of a camera or smartphone, another user nearby can assist them however possible. The community also allows for the sharing of advice from those who have been to a particular site to those planning a trip to the same site in the future. Photospotland also takes the privacy of its community seriously, providing a filter for every user to decide whether to show himself or herself and what personal information to share. This is a welcome feature in an age when internet security is essential due to the amount of personal information readily available online.
Photospotland offers support on multiple platforms, integrating the app to desktops as well as mobile tech devices of every kind. Immediate sharing of either photos or information is possible thanks to the mobile app, so users will want mobile tech support in order to stay connected at all times. You can also remain informed well in advance of a trip of any factors for which you may need to be prepared. With Photospotland, you can find the ideal spot to take the perfect photo anytime thanks to the help of a generous online community.

Diveboard Is Your Largest Online Scuba Resource

There is a specific place within social media for every one of the many varied interests people share, and scuba diving is no exception. Until recently, anything more than small-scale sharing of photos and very simplistic dive profile data was very difficult without the use of expensive professional equipment, but that is no longer the case. This is thanks in large part to Diveboard, which goes beyond basic social media photo sharing to involve divers in ways not previously feasible.
The purpose of Diveboard is to become the online community for scuba divers around the world. The team behind Diveboard created their service because, in their experience, dive profile PDFs were easily misplaced or randomly dispersed. Diveboard’s creators also found that printed dive profiles also tended to be somewhat unsightly and any photos taken were of low quality. Moreover, many divers relied on a logbook, so scattered notes and poor handwriting were major hindrances.

 photo Diveboardlogo_zpsb7855c41.png

Diveboard’s purpose is to organize and improve upon all of these features as well as integrating them into one network observable by others. A major feature is a plugin for either PC or Mac that directly connects a dive computer to the site in order for a user to much more easily and cleanly upload dive profiles. There are a number of options for support on multiple platforms as well, including mobile tech support for smartphones and tablets alongside other supported tech devices.
The real fun is in the social aspects and sharing, and Diveboard gives divers access to many enjoyable facets of what social media is able to provide. The developers have created a community for sharing the joys of diving every step of the way from the pre-planning stages to the posting of photos and dive profiles afterward. It is an extremely helpful tool for anyone planning a dive by granting users access to a database of over 2000 of the best dive spots in the world. Not only can a user choose a perfect site by searching through this database, but anyone hoping to find a particular species of creature while on a dive also has access to a massive catalog of species by geographical location. Diveboard does this by linking the large databases of three of the world’s leading providers of information on marine species. It also features integration with major social media sites for photos and data for easy sharing after a dive.
Diving can be a highly rewarding hobby, and now it is all the more so thanks to Diveboard. Maybe you simply want a more informative and in-depth analysis of a dive and higher quality photos than were possible previously, as well as a place to host them through online storage. Perhaps you desire the more socially gratifying benefit of a community of people who share your interest. In either case, Diveboard provides the resource you have been looking for.

Wit.ai Makes Voice Controls More Intelligent

 photo witai_zps303d1012.png

As technology progresses, more and more of it becomes reliant on voice input for easy utilization, and it is evident that the demand for smarter speech recognition and language processing will increase. The intent of Wit.ai is to offer developers a more approachable interface for building their own natural language and speech recognition interfaces into their company’s apps and tech devices.  The service is looking to fit into the quickly growing niche for devices that operate predominantly by voice like a smart watch or other wearable tech, though a developer would be free to integrate it into any device or hardware.  Read more »

Hive Makes Data Storage Social

 photo HiveLifestyle_zps550491af.png

While cloud-based data storage has not been available for all that long, at least relatively speaking, you see it all over the place already. In addition to the cloud storage offered by major tech companies, more and more options for saving your data to a cloud are constantly becoming available. Quite often, however, these storage options come with either extremely limited space or a hefty price tag attached. Despite the expense, the service is still very popular because of the convenience it offers and the space it saves on your computer or other tech devices. A new cloud storage platform seeks to capitalize on the service’s popularity and the lack of inexpensive options currently available. This platform, called Hive, claims to be the first free cloud storage service in the world to offer unlimited space to keep your data. Read more »



Nimble Manages All Your Business Communications

 photo Nimble-Logo-JPG-300x134_zps7487f459.jpg

With all of the different messaging services we use on a daily basis, it can be easy for anyone to get lost in all of the back and forth conversations on different platforms. Especially in a business setting, forgetting who said what and when can cause some real problems. The messages and tasks to keep track of, particularly for businesses, now often include far more than just keeping track of emails or a simple daily planner. People also need to keep track of their web presence across several different social media outlets, which messages they sent over which service, and recall or quickly look up what they said to any given contact to get up to speed before important conversations or meetings. As many have found out, contact relationship management, or CRM for short, can quickly turn into a jumbled mess. Luckily, a service called Nimble allows you to bring all of these things in once convenient package. Read more »
