Majority of parents would probably agree that in learning, nothing beats the reliability of a good old book. While this has been tried and tested to be true, our educational system and the students it supports have been constantly evolving with the times. Our kids have become more tech-savvy, probably picking up technology’s new advancements faster than we adults could.
So now that a new school year has started, how can technology help students (and us parents) be ready for the learning waves to come? Listed here are some helpful back-to-school apps for tablets and smart phones that can supplement education and make it cool and fun. It kind of makes you want to wish you had these back then while you were still a youngster.
Forget about lugging around heavy books and magazines while you research. Khan Academy offers a multitude of free reading resources and activities (over 150,000) covering subjects from Arts and Humanities to Math and Science, plus more. Students can opt to answer quizzes and exercises and instantly receive feedback on their scores. This app is also excellent for use of teachers, tutors, parents, and just about anybody who wants to find something new every day.
If kids constantly check their smart phones for Facebook or Twitter notifications, then this back-to-school app would be a cinch to use. MyHomework helps them schedule their classes, exams, and projects. Work can be arranged by level of priority and deadline. Plus, instant notifications will pop up on screen whenever something needs to be accomplished right away. MyHomework can also be synched with a desktop computer, so the student won’t have an excuse of missing a submission, whether he is on his desk or on the go.
Need help in defining a word? How do you pronounce a particular phrase? This app is both a dictionary and thesaurus in one. Beyond providing word definitions, synonyms, or antonyms, the app also helps to find etymologies or word origins and even translates words in 30 different languages.
Perhaps one of the toughest tasks in writing a research paper is the proper and correct citation of sources. EasyBib, short for easy bibliography, helps to solve that tedious dilemma. Simply point your smart phone or tablet’s camera onto the book code, and the app instantly generates the citation for you. It supports styles like AMA, ASA, and others. This will definitely help you to focus more on providing excellent content for your paper, rather than worrying about the proper bibliography format.
These are just some apps than can support the learning and advancement of our youngsters. But keep in mind that nothing beats good study habits and proper guidance. You can also check out more apps that will help you and your kids to get ready, no matter what age or school level they may be.
In mid-September of this year, China’s Huawei will be launching its newest addition to the wearable tech market: the Huawei Watch. This Android-based device can link to your mobile phone, providing you with Google tools and more cool features that you can use wherever you may be. And did we mention that it looks oh-so-classy?
The brand ambassadors of the Huawei Watch are supermodels Karlie Kloss and Sean O’pry. Forget about smart watches that look just like little mobile phones on your wrist. The Huawei Watch has been crafted to look just like a pricey Swiss watch, with a round 1.4-inch face and beautiful steel and leather accessories to match.
The Huawei Watch also proudly claims that it can also link up to the iPhone, and not just Android devices. Through this smart watch, you can track your heartbeat and check the number of steps you’ve taken whether you are walking or running. The watch also has a long battery life, possibly reaching up to five days on a single charge. Through the Huawei Watch, you can be updated with notifications from messages, mail, and calendar. Plus, with voice activation, you wear with you a Google assistant that you can consult whenever you need to.
By comparison to the Apple Watch, known as the top-selling smart watch in the market today, the Huawei Watch brings with it the same luxury, style, and innovative tech. Plus, the price of the Huawei Watch can compete quite nicely, which will fetch from a range of $350 to about $800 USD. This price tag difference may make you think twice before buying a slightly costlier Apple Watch at about $500 to $1,100 USD apiece.
Whatever the brand may be, fashion experts have been predicting that the future of wearable technology has only just begun. We may now see tons of brands of smart watches that seamlessly link to our mobile devices, whether it be on iOS or Android. But according to Dr. Sabine Seymour of Parsons the New School of Design in New York, smart watches like the Huawei Watch will not be the only tech-related item that we can wear.
Dr. Seymour is known to be an expert in the field of future fashion technology, having under her belt a Master’s degree and a Doctorate in Social and Economic Sciences. She currently is an assistant professor at Parsons, lending her knowledge and expertise in the design of functional fashion pieces that integrate both innovation and style. Dr. Seymour has also been one of the consultants in the design of the up and coming Huawei Watch.
In a press conference held with the Huawei Business Group, Dr. Seymour has presented her vision of what smart and wearable tech can be. Eventually, our undergarments may be embedded with sensors that can track our vitals like pulse and body temperature. She also came up with concepts of how our outfits can adapt to our changing environments. For instance, a sweater can become thin or thick depending on the temperature outside.
Dr. Seymour’s presentation also mentioned that while our clothing can be linked to our mobile devices and watches, we may soon have the ability to alter how our clothes look just by pressing a button. Imagine how you can change the pattern of your dress to match the color of your shoes!
Fashionable tech has gone a long way from basic bracelets or wristbands used by joggers or exercise buffs. The Huawei Watch signifies that it can be an intelligent luxury item, helping even the busiest of individuals stay up-to-date with their daily routines, while still being chic and stylish.
