Relation Between Games and Studies

This infographic explains the importance of games in the educational system. The question, whether the games should be brought in the classroom or not is worth asking primarily because gaming is associated most of the times with fun activities, and most parents are suspicious that whether games will be helpful in educational pursuits. The infographic answers this question by explaining the changing trends in the world. For instance, traditional ways of learning are no longer sufficient, and the impact of technology in our lives is gradually increasing. In today’s world, children are grown up with the constant awareness of technological gadgets, and they start playing game sat very early age, and this is exactly what makes them different from the older generations.

There are three primary reasons to bring games in the classroom: the first one is that the games are user-friendly and as kids love playing games, they will be able to learn a lot more by this method. The other more important reason is that children are more familiar with games than anything else in their early childhood. Therefore, instead of bombarding children with so many formal books – which will be horrendous for children – if we give them games which feature educational content, the learning rate of children will increase significantly.

Initially, it was believed that gaming is very dangerous for studies, and with the passage of time, and as more and more educational content was introduced in the games, most people now believe that gaming can be helpful for education as well. Whether this is the first group – which disagrees with the educational capacity of gaming – or the second – which agrees – both of them have no idea about how actually the process of learning via gaming helps us. For this matter, the infographic explains the research of a famous doctor Paul Howard Jones, who conducted some research on how games help children learn.

According to Paul, games help us in three different ways: the first and the most important thing is that games stimulate the brain to produce more and more dopamine, and as dopamine is connected to creativity and is responsible for making countless connections between neurons in our mind, it is considered a highly helpful thing. It is important to mention that “the memory of our brain works on the associate power of connections, therefore, more the associations, the stronger our memory,” says Kyle Ward, a senior game developer at Game Period. Thus, in turn, the stronger the connections, the more efficient will be the physical basis for learning.

Another thing that we get from games is the motivational level. We are always motivated to do things that we like, and if we don’t like anything, our motivation goes down to a minimum, and we perform worst in those situations. As children love playing games, their motivation in this activity is significantly higher than if they are reading a book. Therefore, many people want this motivation channelized in a positive way. This can be done by introducing educational content in games.

Baseball Scorekeeping Joins the 21st Century with GameChanger

There was a time when nothing was more sacred than going to a baseball game, getting a hot dog and keeping score in the stands. Children from past generations would enter the gates at their favorite baseball stadium and immediately ask their parents to get a scorecard and pencil, so that they could track every play. In the days before YouTube, Wikipedia and baseball reference sites, keeping score was one of the only ways to look back on games and remember what happened – batter to batter.

As technology advanced the art of scorekeeping faded from popular use, and now many fans don’t know what a backwards “K”, “HPB” or a “6-4-3 DP” means. To help bring scorekeeping back to the 21st Century, GameChanger has launched apps for iOS and Android. GameChanger, available for free, is the leading digital scorekeeping app that also helps amateur baseball and softball teams stay organized and informed.

With one click, users simply have to select the virtual field on the screen and a set of dropdown menus will allow them to input the play. The app keeps track of all the action, so that users can review the game anytime, anywhere. In-game stats include everything from pitch counts to first-pitch strike percentage.

Though Google released Android 7.0 Nougat back in August 2016, Samsung is one of the companies which were unable to keep up the speed like the rest of the top tier companies. Unlike previous updates, Nougat was first released to developers with a public preview beta program in March 2016, meaning early access to the new version of Android. For several months now, Google Nexus smartphone and tablet users have been using the company’s latest Android operating system.

Buying a new smartphone this Black Friday? We found the perfect app

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, only one thing is on the mind of every person on the West side of the Atlantic. In spite of what has been a rather eventful month of November, Americans must be thankful for one thing for sure - Black Friday. Black Friday is the one day that convinces the biggest of hermits to leave their comfort zones and make a purchase. So for normal people, its only understandable to indulge. One of the biggest Black Friday indulgences is electronics and mobile devices, which are quite the steal this time of the year.

If you’re looking forward to buying a smartphone or tablet this Black Friday, we have found a mobile app that is just the thing you need on this prestigious occasion. No, it does not guarantee you the first spot in the line for all major stores (though an app for that would be rather cool!). This app just makes your life a whole lot easier after all the pushing and shoving you’ve done on the day.

Which site offers best smartphone deal on black friday

SmartIO is a smart, innovative application that helps you move all your data from your old device to the new one. While there are a lot of applications that do what SmartIO does, there are many factors that make SmartIO the best of the bunch. For starters, it allows you to transfer data from any smartphone; and by “any” we mean any. It doesn’t matter if you have an Android Phone, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone like Nokia, BlackBerry phone or even a Java phone. This app will let you move your most valuable data. Another feature that makes SmartIO great is the number of things it transfers. You can move not just Contacts, Music and Videos, but also all your Calendars, your WhatsApp Chat Backup, files on SD card, messages and so much more. Best yet, it transfers all this data in a matter of minutes.

Oh, and did we mention there is no limit to how much data you want to transfer? Easy to use and a real content transfer after all the insanity of a Black Friday. The catch? It’s not free (you can try it out for free); but since when are you not willing to pay a few bucks for some much-needed peace of mind?

Android smartphones in the US could be sending personal data to China

In case you’re short of the-end-is-near like scenarios in politics, we’ve got some more for you. And like in all movies - and now the real world - Armageddon will begin in the US. According to an analysis conducted by security researchers at Kryptowire, more than hundreds of thousands Android smartphones have been secretly relaying confidential data to a company based in - wait for it - China.

This week, Kryptowire revealed that the occurrence was because of a pre-installed software in some select smartphones, which enabled the device to automatically send sensitive and personal user information and data to China. Information included text messages, call longs, contacts, data regarding app consumption, and even the user’s location.

One saving grace, if any, is the fact that the smartphones identified as being “affected” include the rather obscure BLU R1 HD, which is sold in the US through retailers like Amazon.com. Unfortunately, other OEMs that could have been affected by the software have not been identified.

According to the company behind the firmware, it was never meant to be pre-installed one devices shipped to the US; they were supposed to be exclusively for devices being sold domestically, in China. This information is both interesting and intriguing. According to the press release sent out by Kryptowire, full-body messages, contact lists, fine-grained device location information and unique device identifiers like the International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) and the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) were sent out. Another aspect of the security breach is the fact that subsequent, automatic updates of the firmware allowed the device to install applications without user knowledge or consent. So don’t be surprised if you have one of the affected devices, you could wake up to a whole bunch of games and let’s say content transfer app without your knowledge. Apparently that’s not it. The press release goes on to reveal that the firmware was capable of bypassing the Android permission model and carrying out remote commands to be granted increased system access that allowed it to reprogram the device. Sounds like one of those all-inclusive software that you only hear about in movies - apparently not.

Android smartphones in the US could be sending personal data to China

So where does it all lead to? Kryptowire traced the transmission to a company called Shanghai Adups Technology Co. Ltd., which develops the Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) update software systems.

The legal team at Adups has categorically denying any wrongdoing, reiterating the occurrence as a mistake and that such a firmware was developed on the request of an undisclosed Chinese client who wants to address the nuisance of spam messages, and for customer support. The NYT, however, suspects something bigger; that perhaps this is how the Chinese government phishes for data regarding US citizens.

Adups has also gone on the record and said that all data “mistakenly” harvested from US-based devices has been deleted, as soon as Kryptowire informed them of the situation. BLU’s CEO has said that its phones are also no longer transmitting personal data as some 120,000smartphones that had been affected had received am update that put an end to the firmware’s monitoring.
