ED-451 Technology Tools Assessment: ED-451 Technology Tools Assessment - 0 views

  • This semester I have been tasked to assess eight technology tools that I have utilized in my audio and visual education class. The tools that I will assess are Moodle, Firefox, NiceNet, Del.icio.us, Google Suites, Ning, Yahoo 360, and Jing. The last tool that I will be assessing was not required for this class, but I chose to assess it because I only learned of and used this tool while completing a different assignment in this class. Below are my assessments of the eight tools with star ratings out of five.

      This is a very nice rubric. It states that it is designed for K-12... can anyone think of what would need to change to apply to higher ed? On first blush it would seem the breakdown holds, but the expectations might be higher?
  •  
    "The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students."
  •  
    A rubric assessing how technology supports learning goals in courses. Designed for K-12, is it applicable to higher ed?

    thanks to conversation between Derrall G and Kristin Hokanson; reminded me of easy to use, exceptional resources for teachers; most are free, one at very low cost
  •  
    A gaggle of ALTEC/Star/4Teahcers educational online tools that can help you and your students with a variety of needs; from rubrics, to PBL resources, to Web presentations and so many more; puts other online quiz, study, assignment software to shame; IMHO;D

AVI CHAI Educational Technology: Using SRS with PowerPoint and Smart Board makes technology work for you - 0 views

  • Recently, I had the opportunity to experiment with the Student Response System (SRS), or the Clickers, as it is commonly called. This emerging technology of classroom management and Response system is relatively new. However, teachers and students can already take advantage of its very promising benefits.

Medical devices powered by the ear itself - MIT News Office - 1 views

  • Health Sciences and Technology (HST) demonstrate for the first time that this battery could power implantable electronic devices without impairing hearing.
  • The devices could monitor biological activity in the ears of people with hearing or balance impairments, or responses to therapies. Eventually, they might even deliver therapies themselves
  • “In the past, people have thought that the space where the high potential is located is inaccessible for implantable devices, because potentially it’s very dangerous if you encroach on it,” Stankovic says. “We have known for 60 years that this battery exists and that it’s really important for normal hearing, but nobody has attempted to use this battery to power useful electronics.”

  • The ear converts a mechanical force — the vibration of the eardrum — into an electrochemical signal that can be processed by the brain; the biological battery is the source of that signal’s current. Located in the part of the ear called the cochlea, the battery chamber is divided by a membrane, some of whose cells are specialized to pump ions. An imbalance of potassium and sodium ions on opposite sides of the membrane, together with the particular arrangement of the pumps, creates an electrical voltage.
  • Low-power chips, however, are precisely the area of expertise of Anantha Chandrakasan’s group at MTL
  • The frequency of the signal was thus itself an indication of the electrochemical properties of the inner ear.
  • in cochlear implants, diagnostics and implantable hearing aids. “The fact that you can generate the power for a low voltage from the cochlea itself raises the possibility of using that as a power source to drive a cochlear implant,” Megerian says. “Imagine if we were able to measure that voltage in various disease states. There would potentially be a diagnostic algorithm for aberrations in that electrical output.”
  • “I’m not ready to say that the present iteration of this technology is ready,” Megerian cautions. But he adds that, “If we could tap into the natural power source of the cochlea, it could potentially be a driver behind the amplification technology of the future.”
  •  
    "For the first time, researchers power an implantable electronic device using an electrical potential - a natural battery - deep in the inner ear."

    "All of D-Lab's classes assess the needs of people in less-privileged communities around the world, examining innovations in technology, education or communications that might address those needs. The classes then seek ways to spread word of these solutions - and in some cases, to spur the creation of organizations to help disseminate them. Specific projects have focused on improved wheelchairs and prosthetics; water and sanitation systems; and recycling waste to produce useful products, including charcoal fuel made from agricultural waste."
