Technology is helping in every aspect of life. It is also helping teachers to expand beyond the traditional text-based learning. It is innovating new ways to engage with students who will get to learn best in many other ways. Technology’s role has evolved from a weekly computer class into a versatile learning tool which would… Continue reading 3 Ways to master digital learning technologies in modern education
Like all other industries and business spheres, the domain of event management is undergoing an incredible transformation. Technological advancement being the major catalyst, new trends are on the rise. The transformation is more evident in areas such as event designs and operational procedures. The industry is continuously shedding its conventional approach and practices and… Continue reading Top trends reinventing the domain of event management
Education has been valued globally for a very long time and with the passage of time, the way people are providing education is changing. The power of pen still remains, but technological advancements have made everything computerised leading to immensely high efficiency. It is important for learning to be efficient because students do not have… Continue reading How does technology contribute to efficient learning methods?
Just a few years back, schools or institutions of learning gave a completely different picture. There was a lot of manual work involved and teachers would lose their breathing by trying to give out lectures after lectures. Today, it is completely different as we see the growth in the technological world, providing extremely convenient assistance… Continue reading How do children learn with latest technology ?
[responsivevoice_button buttontext=”Play”] “Get an education so you can get a decent job,” said your parents, and they’re right — but lucrative careers aren’t limited to people with four-year degrees or post-graduate education. Many high paying careers only require an associate’s degree. Please note: Median earnings listed below come from 2012 Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

The listing below is by no means exhaustive, but it is rather meant as a place… Continue reading Manage attention problems in 15 steps
Education and knowledge are simply what they are. Either you know it or you don’t and in real life, where you acquire knowledge often doesn’t matter so long as you get the job done. There has been a drastic change in the pattern of education over the last few decades. Moreover, after the prolific use of… Continue reading 10 Great websites for educational resources and notes
[responsivevoice_button buttontext=”Play”] For much of the period, students have been relying upon the language learning courses proffered in their institutions. These students claim that learning from a foreign language dictionary is pale, as compared to the interaction derived with a language tutor. However, this college-derived language learning is expensive. Students affected by this setback are… Continue reading Language learning technologies
As the technology expands, the real world is literally shrinking into a Global Village.
Nanotechnology as the new area of interest in technology is an umbrella term that covers many areas of research dealing with objects that are measured in nanometers or billionth of a meter, i.e. it is a hybrid science combining engineering and chemistry.
The goal of nanotechnology is to individually manipulate atoms and place them in a pattern to produce the desired structure. Nano-sized machines called assemblers, that can be programmed to manipulate atoms and molecules at will, are used to build consumer goods. Some nano-machines called replicators, are programmed to build assemblers.
Nanotechnology would enable the creation of new generation of computer components, that will have enormous storage capacity. The greatest impact of nanotechnology could be expected in the medical industry. Patients would drink fluids containing nanorobots programmed to attack and reconstruct the molecular structure of cancer cells and viruses to makes them harmless, and they could also be programmed to perform delicate surgeries.
For environmental clean-up, airborne nanorobots could be user programmed to rebuild the thinning ozone layer. Contaminants could be automatically removed from water sources, and spill could be cleaned up instantly.
Nanotechnology was first introduced in the distant 1959, in a talk by the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, entitled “There’s plenty of room at the bottom”. Feynman proposed using a set of conventional-sized robot arms to construct a replica of themselves, one-tenth of the original size, then using that new set of arms to manufacture an even smaller set, and so on, until the molecular-scale is reached.
Many million or billions of such molecular-scale products built from individual molecules, create a “bottom-up manufacturing” technique, opposed to the usual technique of cutting away material, a completed component or product -“top-down manufacturing”.
