A fun rhyming kids game that will also improve their math skills

According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the math skills that students learn at a young age build a foundation for future learning endeavors and can be a good indicator of whether or not young people will be able to meet and overcome new challenges as they mature. An article by noted 'out of the box' author Malcolm Gladwell a few years ago suggests that the more advanced a child is when first entering school, the more they improve exponentially throughout their whole education. Engaging children to the concept of math early on in their life is more ...  More

Save and share small parts of videos rather than having to keep the whole thing

I'm sure that we've all been in a position at one time or another where we've been watching a longish video on YouTube and found a part of it really interesting. So interesting, in fact, that we want to keep it and watch it again later or share it with our friends. The process at the moment seems to be to save the whole video to your playlist or to add it to the "watch later" feature. However, it can get a little annoying when the section that you want to keep is only one or two minutes out of a sixty minute video. When you share it with others, the best you can do is to tell them to tune ...  More

Take the hassle out of conference room bookings

You wouldn't think that there would be too many problems in managing physical conference room reservations, would you? One would figure that you just invite people after checking their schedules and then find a room and work out a convenient time for everyone. There are even models in Outlook and Google Calendar that work on that system. Unfortunately, it's not always that simple. What tends to happen is that some rooms get double booked while others remain empty - causing frustration on all sides. After years of testing, a company in Cambridge, Massachusetts has put together a faultless, ...  More

An exciting and addictive role playing game to keep you amused for hours

The Tower Defense (TD) style of video game is a sub-genre of real time strategy games where the idea is to try to stop an invading force from making inroads into your territory by using various fighting methods - and anything else you can get your hands on. I guess the genre began when Atari introduces the game Rampart way back in the early 90's. The graphics have changed a lot over the years but the gameplay is basically pretty similar. Hero TD - Ancient Continent is a multiplayer online role-playing game for Android, Blackberry10 and iOS that proves to be an exciting and addictive ...  More

The new, free way of learning for teachers, students and parents

It was interesting to read recently that one of the first things that will change as a result of the debate involving Charter and Public Schools in New York will be the opening up of resource material to everyone for free. If all goes according to plan, resource and reference material will be available for everyone to see instead of being the reference library for those who could afford it. Knowing how most governing bodies enjoy their rhetoric and tend to drag their feet when it comes to putting their money where their mouth is, we'll have to wait and see if and when that happens. ...  More

There is probably more talk about gun control these days than ever before. More background checks, tighter regulations and cooling off periods have all been suggested to try to curb the alarming number of gun related shootings around the world.

Mini Showdown is a beautiful-looking, free shooting game for iOS the gives you real-time and realistic duels with fellow shooters and find out who really is the fastest and most ...  More

A better way of business training and learning

Its a strange thing but, according to the figures, nearly half of the people that use online Learning Management Systems (or LMS) are dissatisfied with what they get out of them. That's probably down to the fact that the people that buy those systems for their workers aren't generally the ones who actually use them. If you really want your employees to engage with learning and development and really push themselves, their peers and their organization, you need a system that they feel was built for them, their goals and their ambitions. Pathfinder turns the LMS concept on its head by ...  More

Eliminate grammatical mistakes with automatic and easy checking

Let's get this straight from the start. I'm big on good grammar. Anything that can be done to improve the writing capabilities of our students has got to be a good thing. If you are a reader, you will know that there is a big difference between the quality of writing of people like Bill Bryson, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and John Grisham compared with lesser writing mortals like James Patterson and E.L. James. While we are not suggesting that a grammar checker will propel your prose to those heady heights, Grammar Checker Academic HD is an iOS education and language application that will ...  More

Take your swimming log to the pool with you and track your routine

When it comes to daily exercise there are many different ways of getting your body going whether it be first thing in the morning or at any other time of the day. Some will go for a jog first thing and some will choose things like yoga or fit into a trip to the gym to keep their body in trim. Some have the luxury of having a public or private swimming pool and will indulge in a regular swimming program. While there are plenty personal trainers (not to mention heaps of health and fitness apps) to check your progress at the gym or in your routine, there are not so many ways of tracking your ...  More
