Sweden is making minecraft a class for 13 year old kids to take. It helps them simulate the real life training. The classrooms were asked to submit their ideas about the kind of structures they envisioned in the Sweden of the future. One of the schools call it thinking out of the box. The teachers say it challenges the children to their imagination.

There are many new things for the ipad such as, smart hapifork is a fork that helps you slow down when you eat, flower power is somthing that monitors sunlight,temerature,water and fertilizer, and there is the iPotty for iPad that holds your iPad while your young children got to the bathroom.

Who was Martin Luther King Jr.? I wanted to write about this subject just because Martin Luther King Jr. changed the lives of everyon. So, it would be interesting to learn more about him.
Minister, saint, hero, civil rights activist- these are the words that often were used describe Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The man who had the foresight to see that America could one day transform into a nation where everyone is equal, regardless of race, color or creed. So who exactly was the man who that single handedly spearheaded America's civil rights movement? He was born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 1929, Dr. King's first encounter with apartheid was at the age of six when he realized that his best friend would be heading to a different school not because he lived in another district, but because, he happened to be white! That's when his parents explained to him that he lived in a city where blacks and whites led totally disparate lives.
They ate at different restaurants, went to different schools and even, sat in separate areas when traveling in buses and trains. While he wished things were different, it was a way of life that Dr. King accepted until he spent a summer working in the tobacco fields in Simsbury, Connecticut and discovered that not all of America was like this. In the northern states, there was no separation by color. Everyone did everything, together. Dr. King returned to Atlanta to pursue his higher education at an all-black college.While at college, he read an essay by Henry David Thoreau which talked about how one could affect unjust laws with peaceful protests.

You can decide whether they are cool or just plain wacky! In this day and age when every electronic gadget is going mini, introducing a personal computer the size of a coffee table may sound a little strange. But you will have to agree that this Windows-based computer from Lenova is pretty cool. Here's a good one for those of you that have a tendency to gobble down your food - A smart fork! Using electronic sensors the Hapifork monitors how fast the user is chowing down his or her food. Eat too rapidly and the fork will vibrate and also flash bright warning lights. Hapifork can also transmit the user's statistics to a smartphone app to keep track of his/her progress. Hapifork can also transmit the user's statistics to a smartphone app to keep track of his/her progress. While using this fork may help your heartburn, paying the expected asking price of $99 USD, may cause it to start, all over again!

The article I chose is called ‘A Library with No Books? Hmm….’ By: Meera Dolasia. This article is basically about a library without any books of course. This library is filled with up-to-date inside that looks like an Apple store. The aisles are filled with a whole bunch of gadgets and electronic stuff.
This library, that has not yet opened, will be located in Texas in the county of San Antonio’s Bexar County. It will open in the fall of 2013. So the judge will be able to get more library’s to open like this one in Texas. There have been other places that have tried to do the same thing but, there library either got shut down or they had to add real books.
This library has books on their computers that you could download those books on e-readers. You could bring your own e-readers or you can borrow one from the library. It said that they have 150 e-readers that you can borrow. There will also be 50 computer stations, 25 laptops, and 25 tablets for everyone to enjoy.
I chose this article because it seemed interesting than the other ones. I think to learn about new gadgets that are out or whatever. I would need to know this information because if I wanted to start a library that was like this I would know how many stuff I would need!

A Library With No Books? Hmm…
What would it be like if you walked into your town’s local public library, and you see no books? What if, instead of those books, you saw lots of computers and other electronic devices? That’s what Nelson Wolff wants Biblio Tech to look like in its hometown of San Antonio. This library is scheduled to open in the fall of 2013. This article is by Meera Dolasia.
The judge of Texas said that he believes the library should be heading in the direction of technology, like the rest of the world. So, the library will have lots of e-readers to borrow, books to borrow to put on their own e-readers, and lots of computers and desks will be available to the visitors. There will be many e-books added often, so the amount of books there, will be close to the amount at an actual library.
There has been many times in the past that cities have tried to organize an e-library, but they have never worked, so it looks like the best one yet, is going to be the e-library they are organizing in San Antonio. So, if this bookless library works out, there may be many more forming around the country! So, would you be happy or upset if this took place in your local library?
I chose this article, because it looked neat that they were using tablets and stuff instead of books. I think it would be really neat if our school library did something like that!! (; I learned that lots of things are being based off of technology, just like this library they’re organizing. Knowing this information will help us in the future, if we decide to start a business and want to use different types of technology.

Minecraft a Mandatory Subject in School ?


My article review is about minecraft I think it should be a subject in our school it’s an awesome game I play it all the time. It is a game about creating virtual worlds and you get to mine diamonds and gold and iron and you have to kill animals for food. They play it in Sweeden because they had a contest and the teachers liked it so now it’s a subject for 13 year old. But what I don’t get is they don’t take a grade on it so they really just pkay it for fun.
So far 180 kids have particiapated in it and I wish I was one o f them. I really think we should play it for a subject though because I think everbody will like it .It is so fun to play .

Minecraft as a Mandatory Subject in School? SWEET!
By:Meera Dolasia
Could you image going to school with no grades or no classrooms, how cool would this be! That is the way school is done in Sweden. They are forcing 13 year olds to play Minecraft as a part of the curriculum for the classroom!
This started as a radical idea, when Sweden's government had a national school competition called, 'Future City'. It was were the classrooms submitted ideas about what they envisioned for the future in Sweden. It was a sucess and in Stockholm's Vikfor Rydberg school, they use the Minecraft for their 13 year old students. In this game you build whole worlds with everything. At this time 180, 13 year old students are doing this. It has been a huge hit.
Would this not be cool if we could do this in our school. All students would like school better and learn more.

A library with no books?
How would you feel if you walked into your local public library and instead of hundreds of shelves laden with all kinds of exciting books, you encountered a modern interior that resembles an Apple store complete with aisles of computers and other electronic gadgets? That, is exactly the vision Nelson Wolff has for BiblioTech, a new kind of public library that is scheduled to open in San Antonio's Bexar County, in fall 2013.The Texas judge says that while he loves physical books, he believes that it is time to bring the library system in the direction in which the world is rapidly heading - E-books! So while the library will not have any physical books, it will have over 10,000 e-titles for patrons to browse through and even download onto their own e-readers. For those that do not yet have access to an iPad, Nook, Kindle or other reading device, there will be a total of 150 e-readers available to borrow, 50 of which, will be reserved for kids! In addition, the library will also feature 50 computer stations, 25 laptops and 25 tablets for people to enjoy, whilst there. The number of books available will be added to annually, so that one day, the book selection at this hi-tech version can be as robust as the one found in a traditional library.

This is not the first time a complete public e-library has been considered. In 2002, Arizona's Tucson-Pima Public Library System was the first to open a small book-less branch - However, it was located in an area where most people did not have access to computers and after repeated requests from locals, the library succumbed and added physical books. In 2011, the city of Newport Beach in California, tried to transform its existing library into a book-less one - But the public did not take it too well and the officials ultimately abandoned the idea. The one place it seems to be working really well is the University of Texas in Austin, where the students love having a library that contains only e-titles. So are people ready for a book-less library? Only time will tell. But if it does work, the judge will be able to open similar libraries in many more locations in the county than he otherwise could - That's because thanks to smaller real-estate requirements, the cost of opening one is much lower than that for a normal library. What do you think of this idea? Would you be thrilled or upset if your local library decided to go the e-route? Be sure to let us know, by adding your comments below!

I chose the article about Minecraft as a subject in school by Meera Dolasia. It is about kids in Sweden that literaly play Minecraft as a subject in school. It is so cool and educational.
So basicaly they are forcing kids to play Minecraft but in an educational way. The kids are disigning a virtual world of what they would think Sweden would look like in the future. This all happened when the Swedish government created a national school competion called Future City. In this the kids create on Minecraft what they would think Sweden would look like in the future.
This was such a success that they allowed it to be educational in the classroom. This they think is a great way to teach students about their environmental affects. They also created a wood crafting class except it is all on a virtual world.
I chose this article because I play Minecraft and love that game. I want to know what the creators of minecraft think about this. This will help me in the future if I become a teacher and i could use this to think of an educational way to teach students.

Minecraft As A Mandatory Subject In School? Sweet!
By: Meera Dolasia

"Minecraft", a game made by Markuss "Notch" Personn, has evolved highly since its creation. With over 9 million people having Minecraft, the success level is more than amazing. In fact, Minecraft has even been a mandatory curriculum for some schools.

Minecraft is a creative game in which players can go to the fullest extent with their imagination, stretch it out more, and create it. They may also choose to fight wave after wave of monsters in the game's Survival Mode.

People may be thinking, why is Minecraft a mandatory subject in school. The reason being, Minecraft can be used for landscaping and design, without the actual mess of it all. This helps develop one's brain for the future needs a person might need to fulfil.

I chose this article because Minecraft is a very amazing game. It allows "thinking outside the box" as well as peace of mind. Minecraft is a very good way to keep your brain going whenever you do not wish to do anything else. This is why I chose this article.

In the 20,000 products were the usual items - smarter televisions, bigger tablets, smaller cameras etc... But the new items that made the top list are the weird and different ones.
In this century things are getting smaller than what they used to be but a personal computer the size of a coffee table from Lenova is pretty cool. The giant screen is 27-inches. It can be laid flat and turned into a game board. It's complete with its own electronic dice.Pinball Machines, mRobo, iPotty For iPad, Flower Power, and many other unique and interesting things were at this show.
This was a great article. It let me know about the world and electronics being made around me. It makes me really want some of those awesome products. I cant wait for them to come out!

Ok, so this article is about a sneaky lake that keeps on vanishing and reappearing. I chose this article because I love lakes, you love lakes, and everyone is loves lakes. Also because dis one is cool, as usual. :D
Now for the 1st and 2nd ideas. I think the first idea is to educate us. Why? Well, this article tells u about a vanishing lake that disappears and reappears. The 2nd idea is to….BLOW OUR MINDS! Why? Because a lake that disappears because there’s a sink hole in the middle of it and it reappears because it gets clogged, isn’t that cool? You just got yo mind blown.
Now for the 3rd idea. This ones complicated. It is! DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT! The 3rd idea is to help us understand (told u it was complicated). Why? Because it teaches us how and why it disappears and reappears. How bout dat?
Unfortunately, I have to go. I know I know. You people are crying. Well, the 3 ideas were to educate us, blow our minds, and to help us understand about this kinda stuff and other junk that’s related to this kind ‘o’ stuff. Stay tuned for da next article review next week. BYE!

Elusive Giant Squid Finally Caught On Camera

Giant squids have been known to exist for centuries. However, catching the world's largest invertebrate on camera in its natural habitat is little tricky. But now, thanks to some Japanese researchers, we can finally get a glimpse of these cephalopods.

Finding these ginormous creatures is not easy. So some Japanese researchers went to waters east of Japan's Chichi-Jima Island where these creatures have been spotted twice - In 2006 and 2012.

The search was taken into a specilly made submarine that was lowered 2,066 feet into the Pacific Ocean. It took more than 400 hours and 100 trips for the crew of the sub to find a squid. they were able to film a 9-10 feet long squid for a ful 23 minutes.

I’m going to tell you about the Giant Squid. People have tried to catch one on camera for years. Now suddenly Men from Japan have caught one on camera.
The Men from Japan had to make a special sub marine to travel over 2,066 feet into the northern Pacific Ocean. Keep in mind that the Pacific Ocean is extremely cold. The mean had to take over 100 trips down into the water.
Eventually a Giant Squid came and ate the bait they had set out. The squid stayed for about 23 min. then it tasted their camera. When it had finally decided the camera didn’t taste good it left.

A team of researchers from the University of Utah has invented a camera that captures images of these tiny ice crystals in their full 3-Dimensional glory, as they are falling. Multi Angle Snowflake Camera (MASC), this uses 3 high speed cameras that are triggered by sensors, its also capable of measuring the rate the flakes are falling thanks to its super fast 1/25000 second timing - Something that has not been possible, until this to this.
This is the reason i chose to read this article. i think i want one of those cameras. It would be extremely cool to be able to see the different designs all these snowflakes have since none are the same. (:

When I found out Minecraft was being used in school for learning I thought that that wouldnt help but I guess it does. Me, I've never played it but it could be some math or languish in it.(the coolest idea of all - 'Forcing' 13-year-olds to play Minecraft as part of the classroom curriculum.)
The seed for this rather good idea was planted when the government of Sweden organized a national school competition called 'Future City'. (For which classrooms were asked to submit their ideas about the kind of structures they envisioned in the Sweden of the future.)
(It was such a success that educators at Stockholm's Viktor Rydberg school decided to continue this 'out of the box' thinking by incorporating Minecraft into the class curriculum for 13-year-students.)According to the teachers, the game which challenges kids to use their imagination by building virtual worlds complete with electricity grids.water supply pumps and anything else they would like to see in their future.

Sweden has to be one of the coolest places for a kid to grow up in . First they introduced the concept of then came and now, the coolest idea of all 13year olds to play Minecraft as part of the classroom The seed for this rather idea was planted when the government of organized a national school competition called for which classrooms were asked to submit their ideas about the kind of structures they in the Sweden of the future.It was such a success that educators at Stockholm's Viktor Rydberg school decided to continue this thinking by Minecraft into the class curriculum for 13 years students.According to the teachers, the game which challenges kids to use their imagination by building virtual worlds complete with electricity grids, water supply pumps and anything else they would like to see in their futurevallows students to think beyond the classroom . This they believe, will help them make better decisions as adults especially about things like the impact of their actions. And while it may sound radical to most people they liken it to teaching a woodcraft class except in this case all the construction is being conducted in a virtual world.So far 180 13 year girls and boys, have participated in this unit which not surprisingly has been such a huge hit that the school is planning to make it a permanent addition to their curriculum. It of course augments, not replaces, core subjects like math and science. The educators say that even parents who were a little about their kids playing video games at school, are now on board and fully support this decision.We wonder if any school in the US would even yo

A Library With No Books? Hmm…..
How would you fill if you go to town and stop by the public library and inside instead of lot and lots of books there’s computers and electronic gadgets.
Nelson Wolff is going to open a new kind of public library in San Antonio’s Bexar Country in fall 2013.
Nelson is going to call it Biblio Tech public library.

On the computers and stuff they put in there they have them cause you can read on them and Nelsons like if you can read on them why not put them in a library instead of books.
They are opening all over the place now because of Nelson they all think that was a good thing to do.
You can say students love to go to the library because they can use the high tech things.

I think this was a good article because it talks about books.
You can get kids to read if we did that at least half.

were asked to save their great ideas. It was such a success that educators at Stockholm's school decided to continue this 'out of the box' thinking by puting Minecraft into the classrooms for 13 year old students. 180 13 year old girls and boys have joined in this event. It does not replace core subjects like math and science.

Through January 8th-11th Las Vegas, Nevada had one of the biggest and coolest trade shows. An estimated 150,000 people attended this year’s show, which has been the biggest trade show in its 45 year history. More than 3,250 exhibitor’s unveiled new items they plan to bring to stores soon. Here are some that are cool and just plain wacky. The table PC, in this day everything is going mini so this is a computer that is the size of a coffee table! The bets pat is that it can lay flat. It has loads of stuff including new games and old games. That is awesome! Next is the smart hapifork, this fork is very unique. If you start to eat too fast then the fork will start to vibrate and flash warning lights, and it also keeps track of your progress. This fork can help prevent heartburn and other things you can get from eating too fast. Next is the flower power, this item helps you know how much sun, water and what temperature it needs to be at. It also gives you instructions on how to care for 6,000 different plants. Next is the mrobo, this robot is a speaker that goes up to 40Hz. The robot also dances as soon as the music starts. The owner can also install their own dance moves. The last is the pinball machines; yes they are bringing the pinball machines back. They have games like avengers and transformers and more.

I am doing my article on the Elusive Giant Squid Finally Caught on Camera. Giant Squids have existed for centuries. This is the world's biggest invertabrate. And Japanese reasearchers got a picture of one for the first time.

A Giant Squid is not easy to find. This creature as been spotted 2 times in 2006 and in 2012. The Squid lives 2,066 feet under the sea. With a three man crew it took them 400 hours and more than 100 trips to get down there.

This Squid is 9-10 ft long invertabrate. The Japanese got to take a full 23 min. film of it. They were able to do this because they laid out smaller squid for it to feed on. This squid would have been 23 ft long, but they were out of.

Thanks for reading my article review. BYE!!!!
