At New Zealand schools, Chromebooks top the list of learning tools

New Zealand educators are changing their approach to teaching, building personalized learning pathways for every student. Technology plays a key part in this approach. New Zealand has joined the list of countries including Sweden the United States where Chromebooks are the number one device used in schools, according to analysts at International Data Corporation (IDC). Technology is transforming education across the globe, and in New Zealand schools are using digital tools to help  students learn, in the classroom and beyond like Bombay School, located in the rural foothills south of Auckland.

Google’s Search app on iOS gets a Twitter-like Trends feature, faster Instant Answers

According to the app’s added “What’s New” text on the App Store, Google will now show you searches that are “trending around you” when you tap into the search box to start a search. It’s also showing Instant Answers as you type, meaning you can ask questions or get quick information before you even press the search button. Now, the Trending Searches have blue, rounded ‘climbing arrow’ icons next to them, which makes these trends easier to differentiate from your own search history, as compared with the gray icons on a white background when the feature first launched last year. Though the update claims the Trends are related to what’s happening around you, they don’t seem to be all that local. Instead, today’s list points to general U.S. trends, like the upcoming iPhone event, Big Brother spoilers, and Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latté, among other things. (Wow, that’s America in a nutshell, huh?) In addition, the search feature itself has gotten a little smarter, as it can now answer questions as you type out your search query – even if you typo. For example, Google suggests, if you typed “goog stock” or “how tall is the Eiffel Tower,” the answer would

Google Chrome could soon let you mute annoyingly noisy websites

Websites that auto-load videos with sound may soon be a thing of the past — or, at least, your days of having to put up with them could be. That’s because Google is testing a new option that lets users permanently mute a website within the Chrome Browser.   Noisy websites have long been a pain. Chrome introduced an indicator to flag guilty tabs a couple of years ago — it had long been needed — and now the development team is testing this mute option inside the latest experimental ‘Canary’ version, according to Google developer François Beaufort. You can follow this link if you want to try it out.   It looks very easy to use. Just click on the security status that’s located to the left of the website address, and then the option to mute the site sits within the list of its details and permissions. The mute itself lasts until the setting is changed, which effectively makes it a sound ban.   While the feature would only appear in Chrome, assuming that it graduates from this test rollout, it could spur other browser companies to follow suit.   This kind of option for users could discourage

Visualize data instantly with machine learning in Google Sheets

Ask and you shall receive → Sheets can build charts for you Explore in Sheets, powered by machine learning, helps teams gain insights from data, instantly. Simply ask questions—in words, not formulas—to quickly analyze your data. For example, you can ask “what is the distribution of products sold?” or “what are average sales on Sundays?” and Explore will help you find the answers. Now, we’re using the same powerful technology in Explore to make visualizing data even more effortless. If you don’t see the chart you need, just ask. Instead of manually building charts, ask Explore to do it by typing in “histogram of 2017 customer ratings” or “bar chart for ice cream sales.” Less time spent building charts means more time acting on new insights.   Instantly sync your data from Sheets → Docs or Slides Whether you’re preparing a client presentation or sharing sales forecasts, keeping up-to-date data is critical to success, but it can also be time-consuming if you need to update charts or tables in multiple sources. This is why we made it easier to programmatically update charts in Docs and Slides last year. Now, we’re making it simple to keep tables updated, too. Just copy and

How The New York Times used Google Sheets to report congressional votes

There’s a common phrase among reporters: “The news never sleeps.” This is why many news outlets rely on cloud-based productivity tools like Google Docs and Sheets to share information, check facts and collaborate in real time. And The New York Times is no exception. In May 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a new health care law affecting millions of Americans. To report the news as fast as possible, The Times’ editorial team used Sheets to tally and display House votes in real time on   Engaging voters with the Sheets API “People want to feel connected to the decisions their legislators make as soon as they make them,” said Tom Giratikanon,  a graphics editor at The Times. But rules in the House chamber make reporting on how every representative votes in real time difficult. Photography is restricted on the assembly floor, and there is a delay until all votes are displayed on the House website—a process that can sometimes take up to an hour. To get around this lag, Giratikanon’s team used the Google Sheets API. The editorial team dispatched reporters to the chamber where they entered votes into a Google Sheet as they were shown

Luang Pradit Phairoh’s 136th Birthday

136 years ago, Luang Pradit Phairoh was born Sorn Silapabanleng to a musician’s family in the Amphawa District of Thailand. As a young boy, he accompanied his father and performed as part of a traditional Thai piphat (musical ensemble) across the countryside. At one of these soirees, his musical genius was discovered by a nobleman, and he encouraged 19-year-old Sorn to move to the capital to study music.   Today, he is regarded as the greatest composer of traditional Thai music. Luang Pradit tutored some of Thailand’s finest musicians and composers, including King Rama VII and Her Majestic Queen Rambhai Barni. In 1925, he was titled ‘Luang’ (a title similar to ‘Sir’), and in keeping with the tradition of the times, was also renamed with the honorific, Pradit Phairoh – loosely translated as ‘Master of Symphony’). Today’s Doodle depicts Luang Pradit Phairoh, against the backdrop of the ranat ek – a type of xylophone that forms the centerpiece of a traditional piphat. Luang Pradit was particularly known for his mastery of this instrument.   ที่มา: Google อ่านมาถึงตรงนี้ หากคุณเริ่มรู้สึกสนใจขึ้นมาแล้วล่ะก็ ติดต่อเราเพื่อสอบถามข้อมูล หรือขอคำแนะนำได้เลย บริษัท ดีมีเตอร์ ไอซีที จำกัด ผู้ให้บริการ G Suite ในประเทศไทย สอบถามรายละเอียดเพิ่มเติมพร้อมโปรโมชั่นพิเศษ โทร!  02-675-9371  092-262-6390  097-008-6314 (ฝ่ายขาย) Official LINE
