Interesting idea for undergraduate education. This proposal involves MOOCs but if student successfully complete, they can pay money and get credits to ASU for $200/credit. Another idea that could lead to a change in higher education.
Another article about software/hardware/intellectual property. If a piece of equipment is run by software do you actually OWN the equipment? Or is it licensed? The lines are blurring and this is an interesting story to use for ES 380.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article about state testing for Common Core. Describes the situation as of spring 2015. Very political but creating problems for schools. Use in ES 415?
Support from Apple for removing a variety of adware from your Mac. Gives instructions for most of the common ones (and there are a lot!).
Good article explaining how and why haptic feedback (aka force touch) in some of the more recent Apple devices is useful for people with a variety of special needs.
We talked about this about a year ago in ES 286. Worth another look as it appears closer to actually being available to buy. There are some wheelchair videos worth finding and using for class.
Good overview article on the topic. Actually, some of this was done by one or two companies I interviewed at--including Intel in the mid-1990s. Being asked the questions that were asked was strange--but it really made me think as a potential employee and made me ask them questions I had never thought to ask. We all need to do this more. Sounds like an interesting book.
Short article describing the resolution of the Amazon-Hachette dispute over ebook pricing that dragged on for months.
A good description of what the FCC does with advertising on TV. Good contrast with the online world. Preservice teachers need to think about what it is kids are seeing in ads both on TV and online. Might be useful for ES 380.
Good description of how to do screencasting of something on an iOS device. You do need to be running Yosemite on a Mac to do this but it looks fairly straightforward.
Lots of links to how iBeacons are being used in libraries as of March 2015. Some links to general iBeacon technology as well. Useful for LMED 382.
A nice article about how the watch was conceptualized and developed. Worth keeping for the historical value.
