Startup Clever Simplifies Teaching With Technology

By on Nov 2, 2012 in Software |

There are no limits to the applications of technology, and savvy startups are creating products and services that are altering fields as diverse as medicine, finance, travel and communications in permanent and significant ways. One area that can certainly use all the help it can get is education, as teachers continue to work harder for less pay, even while American students lag behind those from other developed countries in the world. Thankfully, technology is coming to the rescue. But while digital interaction between teachers and students is probably the wave of the future, there is still a significant learning curve. Right now all this tech is actually causing more work for teachers instead of easing the load. Enter Clever, an educational technology startup that is bringing $3 million in initial capital to the task of bridging that gap. According to Clever’s founders, Harvard graduates Dan Carroll, Rafael Garcia and Tyler Bosmeny, the goal is to help teachers get quickly up to speed on tracking student’s online work, even if the teachers don’t have the requisite IT knowledge. Dan Carroll discovered this issue when he was working within a school district as the director of technology. He noticed that educational software that was intended to streamline and modernize the process, phasing out paper workbooks and chalkboard examples, was actually making his teachers’ jobs more complicated. Carroll refers to the situation as ‘blended learning’. Basically, technological innovations have made possible whole sets of software that can truly assist students. This software improves test scores and information retention, but none of that helps the teachers if it can’t be integrated with existing methods. Instead of creating all new software, Clever works alongside software developers in the educational space to make sure that each new program can seamlessly drop into a school district’s system. Clever has only been around for six months, but it has already connected with forty of the best educational technology companies in existence. And that work has directly impacted more than 600,000 students across 2,000 schools. That sort of expansion would not have been possible if the Clever team hadn’t taken part in the Y Combinator. That’s a program designed to help technology startups accelerate their growth while attracting high-end investors. More than a few partners in Y Combinator stepped in with their own money, but the $3 million raise also included contributions from Google Ventures and Ashton Kutcher. Y Combinator also pushed the Clever team to get involved with individuals and companies already working in online learning, and that has also reaped significant rewards. The Princeton Review’s John Katzman and Matt MacInnis, CEO of Inkling are also supporters of their work. Carroll and his partners will use the funding to expand what the company is capable of. Eventually they want to be involved in every piece of educational software that goes to market. It remains to be seen if they will focuses solely on primary school, or if they will also lend their talents to a continuing ed or online MBA program as well. Regardless, thousands of teachers and hundreds of thousands of students around the country will be touched by their work, which should leave a lasting impact on the country as a...

The Rebirth of the Stylus

By on Aug 1, 2012 in Software |

The stylus has been around for, literally, thousands of years. The Romans have always been considered a civilisation that was well ahead of its time and you can’t doubt this when they too were using tablets and styluses together! Admittedly there tablets were wax tablets, but still, the point is valid. Fly forward to 2012, the stylus and the tablet are back. The tablet has had somewhat of a makeover during the last 2000 years or so, it not features touch screen technology and is capable of playing music, showing pictures, sending messages across the world and more. The stylus on the other hand hasn’t changed so much. It seems a little absurd the stylus used on wax tablets several millennia ago is in essence the same thing that is used on digital tablets today. Why haven’t styluses been optimised for today’s technology? It’s clear that many manufacturers are content with producing styluses that cost only a few pence to make and they can sell for a few quid. Fair enough, it makes good business sense – good luck to them. But it’s not particularly progressive or forward thinking. One company that have broken the stylus mould though are Adonit. Adonit realised that whilst a stylus needed to be pointed for engraving, it didn’t have to be for touch-screen technology. Especially when you consider that rubber-tipped styluses, which are common place, are pretty hopeless when it comes to traction and control. They are much harder to use than pen and paper. This doesn’t seem like progress if things are harder to use and less effective. Instead, Adonit have gone back to the drawing board and created the Adonit Jot – a stylus that feels like a fine pen. The main difference between the Jot and other styluses is found at the nib of the stylus: where there sits a ‘Precision-Disc’. This little spherical disc glides over the glass-screen of products such as the iPad with ease and provides outstanding traction and control – just like pen and paper! The Adonit Jot is available to buy from Adonit UK, with a host of different models available to suit your...

Surprise Move By Research In Motion To Offer Security Software

By on Dec 3, 2011 in Blackberry, Gadgets, Software |

Blackberry is down but not yet out. They are moving into a realm that is surprising for a company that has been focused in the past on hardware. Research In Motion has made “Mobile Fusion” an enterprise software that works on its competitor’s smartphones as well. Get a look at it here in this short article. Research In Motion Changes Venue To Software The team at Research In Motion is beaten in market share these days, but not in mind share. Other companies have undertaken to do what this group has done but not in such depth. Google created their “Google Voice” for the iPhone, much to the chagrin of Apple. Now Research In Motion is making security software for both Android devices, iPhone smartphones and more. Is this an attempt to retake their once-dominant position? Probably not. They have gone through some massive changes with their own software. Changing from “Blackberry OS 6” to QNX ( now renamed BBX ) has taken them down on the rung of popularity. This could be a step to crank them up a notch. Introducing : “Mobile Fusion” The software in view is called “Mobile Fusion”. Blackberry is aiming this as a security tool for those using their smartphones for work. They plan on covering the whole gamut of devices. They will cover their own Blackberry smartphones, iPhones, smartphones with Android installed and are including tablets as well. Control for the “Mobile Fusion” system is going to be from the web, from Blackberry servers. Other people call this the “cloud”, but Research In Motion prefers to keep their “Blackberry Enterprise Server” name on the ticket instead of using the term “cloud”. What Can “Mobile Fusion” Do? What will the new Research In Motion software accomplish? It is able to be a complete “command and control” interface for many different smartphones. One feature is the ability to remotely wipe, secure and protect lost or stolen handsets. This is already available from other providers, but is part of this “Mobile Fusion” package. One user can control multiple devices, which is a nice feature for managers. Both group and user administration is enabled, so that one person can act as a system administrator, just like an in-house computer setup. Look For This System Early Next Year The Research In Motion “Mobile Fusion” software will be available in March for an unspecified price. It will be a bid for Blackberry to continue to remain relevant in a fast-paced mobile revolution that has been passing them up this year. Are you interested to get more information on the author?

Reducing Waste Through The Use Of Effective Stock Control Software

By on Dec 3, 2011 in Software |

Stock control software is one of the most important assets for a business that sells stock of any kind, especially perishable stocks like food. Since stock is one of the largest investments for most businesses, losing money through waste can be a devastating blow if not controlled. Through effective use of this software, waste can be reduced or even eliminated entirely. Amount of StockMany businesses are large, and though the majority of employees can keep up with the stock numbers, it is common for merchandise to get lost. When the stock is lost, then more has to be ordered to make up for what the employees cannot find. This not only wastes money for getting the extra stock, but if the item is perishable, the extra stock that was lost will most likely go bad, meaning the extra cost cannot even be recovered. Stock control software will ensure this does not happen, because it will constantly display the accurate amount of items in the store. This ensures that employees will not order anything else, because they will know that the inventory is somewhere, they just need to find it. Ordering the Correct AmountsSome products have a stable demand, and it will be easy to know when you have to order more when the supplies are getting low. If there is a popular product, or a product that has an unstable demand, then this becomes much harder, because if you order too soon then you will waste profits, and if you order too late your inventory may go bad or it may be stuck on shelves. With stock control software, you receive an algorithm that will show you when inventory needs to be ordered based on many complex factors. This will show you, mathematically, when is the best time to order new inventory. By ordering at the last second, and ordering the proper amount, you can avoid waste while keeping customers happy. Real-Time Inventory TrackingAnother way that stock control software helps reduce waste is through real-time tracking. Real-time tracking means that the inventory numbers are updated as soon as they are scanned, meaning there is no update lag between scanning and the system reflecting the new inventory numbers. This reduces waste by reducing inventory number confusion. If the system updated slowly, then employees may order more products or the system may say it is time to order more, even though there are really enough items in the store. ConclusionFew businesses can survive without inventory control software, because waste is a very real and very devastating problem. This will keep businesses from unnecessarily losing profits, whether by keep track of how many items are in the store, or by telling employees when products should really be ordered. Terry Jones works in the retail industry where he oversees stock levels of food and drink items.  The use of stock control software is an integral part of his role and Terry sees it as a challenge to ensure that through it he can minimises wastage.
