The hallmark of the Digital Age is change – constant, rapid, and often disruptive. The computer itself has changed – from mainframe to minicomputers, personal desktops to laptops, handheld devices to mobile computers or tablets. We now have tiny embedded computers – in cars, in washing machines and even in cats and dogs. How we live our lives has changed. Virtually every activity humans engage in, is impacted by computers and that’s constantly changing, too.
No surprise then, that K-12 education was also impacted by the constant transformation of computers.
Part 2 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge."
In our last webinar, we discussed how trends & technologies like IoT and its many applications have helped drive an Always On, Always Connected mentality that has completely evolved customer experience standards. These demands are driving a need for resiliency in local edge environments, meaning compute & storage capacity is now coming back on premise for many applications – especially in industries like Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education.
In other words, this highly distributed access layer is now becoming a compute layer – one that is mission-critical to delivering a flawless (or at least acceptable) customer experience. These environments are often make-shift wiring closets (janitor’s closets, back rooms, etc.) with no dedicated IT staff per each location.
More than ever before, Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education customers are turning to solution providers to be that “dedicated IT staff” to find and fix problems before they start, so that the customer (or patient, or student) experience they’re working to provide remains a good one.

ELLs are a diverse group of about ?ve million students in the U.S. who speak a primary language other than English and are not yet pro?cient in English. To catch and keep up with their native English speaking peers, ELLs need more instructional time and specialized instruction, including specially designed materials and advanced educational tools to accelerate their learning.
Well utilized state-of-the-art technology tools can transform not only learning but academic success itself for ELLs and their families.

So you’re thinking about moving to the cloud. Which means you’ve got some new (and some old) security issues to think about.
Where do you start? What should you look for when you’re planning your cloud migration or expansion, and what features do you need to tick off your list when you compare partners for the project?
At AWS, we’ve worked with millions of cloud users in 190 countries, from all kinds of industries – large enterprise, start-ups, non-profits, education and government. Every organisation's needs are different, but we’ve identified the top features of any successful cloud security initiative. Here are six must-haves for cloud security confidence.
Internet of Things. Cloud. Augmented reality. Virtual reality. Technologies like these are changing the face of all industries, across manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, education, agriculture, logistics, and more.
These transformative technologies define new paradigms of business productivity, customer centricity, and quality & compliance management.
This infographic features the opportunities these technologies can o er as they begin incorporating them into their business models.

In October 2013, Getting Smart partnered with Rosetta Stone to release a report called “The Next Generation of
World Language Learning.” The goal of the report was to create a vision for world language learning that acknowledged
its role in global competency and to frame the vision inside broader shifts to personalized learning and blended
instruction. Pointing to the potential of educational technology, we advocated for accessible, high-quality world
language instruction for all students—from elementary through high school.
Time and resource allocation for language programs
has been shrinking while the need for multilingualism
only grows. It is critical that our students remain
competitive on the global playing field. As the
benefits of a multilingual society become clearer,
parents insist that language learning is important for
their children’s future success.
However, our current education system still lacks the
resources to provide all children the opportunity to
develop the skills that will prepare them to succeed in
an interconnected world. Global competence and
language skills are no longer just nice to have—they
English Language Learners (ELLs), are a vastly diverse group of approximately 5 million students who speak a primary language other than English and who are not yet proficient in English, which is a second or additional language for them. In order to keep up with their native English speaking peers, ELLs need more instructional time and specialized instruction, including specially designed material and state-of-the-art educational tools to accelerate their learning.

Today, a range of diverse cyber-adversaries — including nation-states, cybercriminals, competitors, hacktivists, and insiders/contractors — pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
The business impact can include costly production downtime, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate secrets such as sensitive information about formulas and proprietary manufacturing processes.
The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives and IT/OT convergence to support the business — removing any “air-gaps” that may have existed in the past.
To help security and operations teams stay ahead of the latest ICS/SCADA threats, CyberX — the industrial cybersecurity company founded by military cyber experts with nation-state experience securing critical infrastructure — has partnered with SANS to create educational content about emerging ICS threat vectors and
