    1. espite the potential of emerging technologies to assist persons with cognitive disabilities,significant practical impediments remain to be overcome in commercialization, consumerabandonment, and in the design and development of useful products. Barriers also exist in terms of the financial and organizational feasibility of specific envisionedproducts, and their limited potential to reach the consumer market. Innovative engineeringapproaches, effective needs analysis, user-centered design, and rapid evolutionary developmentare essential to ensure that technically feasible products meet the real needs of persons withcognitive disabilities. Efforts must be made by advocates, designers and manufacturers to promote betterintegration of future software and hardware systems so that forthcoming iterations of personalsupport technologies and assisted care systems technologies do not quickly become obsolete.They will need to operate seamlessly across multiple real-world environments in the home,school, community, and workplace

      This journal clearly explains the use of technologies with special aid people how a certain group can leverage it, while also touch basing on what are the challenges which special aid people face financially.

    1. This page, Top Tools for Learning, is updated every year. It lists and briefly describes the top tech tools for adult learning. For the current (2018) list, they are YouTube, PowerPoint, and Google Search. The list proceeds through the top 200 and there are links to each tool. The purpose of this page is to list them; tutorials, etc. are not offered. Rating 4/5

    1. Campus Technology magazine This is the website for a magazine that is also published on paper. Articles are freely accessible (a subscription is not required). The design of the page is messy and as with any magazine, the content varies, but the site does give a description of the use of technology in higher education. The same technologies can sometimes be applied in adult learning in general. Rating 4/5

    1. Edutech wiki This page has a somewhat messy design and does not look very modern but it does offer overviews of many topics related to technologies. Just like wikipedia, it offers a good jumping off point on many topics. Navigation can occur by clicking through categories and drilling down to topics, which is easier for those who already know the topic they are looking for and how it is likely to be characterized. Rating 3/5

    1. This is one of many discussions of Kirkpatrick's four levels of evaluation. More of the page is taken up with decoration and graphics than needs to be the case but this page is included in this list because it offers a printable guide and because the hierarchy of the four levels is clearly shown. The text itself is printed in black on a white background and it is presented as a bulleted list (the bullets are not organized as well as they could be). Nonetheless it is a usable presentation of this model. rating 3/5

    1. List of web 2.0 applications

      EDUTECH wiki is a site that contains a variety of links to lists to hep educators with web 2.0 applications improving productivity Caution: some of the links are not active!

      RATING: 4/5 (rating based upon a score system 1 to 5, 1= lowest 5=highest in terms of content, veracity, easiness of use etc.)

    1. Towards teaching as design: Exploring the interplay between full-lifecycle learning design tooling and Teacher Professional Development.

      This article explores the theory of training teachers as learning designers to promote innovate and creativity. Included in the article are studies of designers with little teaching experience compared with those that are full-cycle teachers and the effect of TPD and LD upon training.

      RATING: 5/5 (rating based upon a score system 1 to 5, 1= lowest 5=highest in terms of content, veracity, easiness of use etc.)

    1. In releasing the study results, Campus Technology reported that some teachers had expressed mixed feelings about the use of technology. These opinions came in the form of open-ended questions answered directly by educators. The educators were not identified. One noted that the learning process can suffer if students depend too much on their devices. “People can easily get addicted to their devices, and using technology can change the way the brain develops - not always in a good way,” the teacher wrote. Another educator wrote: “Technology is accidentally increasing students' weakness in reading and figuring things out (or critical thinking). They confuse clicking with learning.”
    2. The study also looked at how technology helped teaching effectiveness. A large majority of educators, 87 percent, said technology had positively affected their ability to teach. Eleven percent said they felt technology had no effect on the quality of their teaching. Just two percent said technology had a negative effect on teaching.

    1. 5.2.AWARENESS

      Fairly confused by this section. Need to read the cited works -- perhaps there are some clues there to help demystify what Reddy is getting at here.

    1. Technologies & education system changing in recent times tutors should consider educating students with the latest technologies available. In the evolution of technology with apps, projector screens, Digital media, and last but not the least online learning platforms some fundamentals of teaching remains as it is, so if tutors can implement these basic ideas in his/her tutoring style with students can cope up with the evolution of digital education.

    1. ВЫВОДЫ

      <br>

      • Все комплектующие адаптера должны быть последнего поколения. К высокоскоростному Wi-Fi 802.11ac должен прилагаться высокоскоростной же USB 3.0, тогда и в двухантенном адаптере есть смыл.

      • Если комплектующие разных поколений. Высокоростной Wi-Fi 802.11ac + низкоскоростной USB 2.0 дадут ⩽ 270 Мбит/с и не больше. В двухантенном смысла нет.

      • Если все комплектующие предыдущих поколений. Средне- и низкоскоростные Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n (не ac) + низкоскоростной USB 2.0 — есть смысл в двухантенном адаптере. <br>

      Но для получения максимальных результатов адаптер должен принимать сигнал от роутера, соответствующего характеристикам адаптера. То есть поколение роутера тоже должно соответствовать.

    2. Минусом работы на 5 ГГц может быть уменьшение дальности работы (по сравнению с 2,4 ГГц), но этот вопрос мы в данной статье не затрагивали и постараемся вернуться к нему в следующих публикациях.
    3. Конечно, не забывайте, что и роутер должен соответствовать этому уровню.
    4. Если же адаптер работает в ПК или ноутбуке по интерфейсу USB версии 3.0, то скоростные показатели заметно интереснее — до 450 Мбит/с и выше.
    5. в случае работы с шиной USB 2.0 пользователи сетей 802.11ac могут рассчитывать на максимальные скорости около 270 Мбит/с. При этом особого смысла гнаться за двухантенным (скорость соединения 867 Мбит/с) адаптером практически нет. Единственное, где он может выиграть у одноантенного (скорость соединения 433 Мбит/с) — работа с сетями прошлого поколения.
    6. Если вы пользуетесь ноутбуком, встроенный беспроводной адаптер которого обеспечивает работу в 802.11n/300 Мбит/с (а таких моделей в среднем сегменте большинство), то установка внешнего контроллера может помочь существенно увеличить скорость работы с сетью, и подобный апгрейд может быть оправдан.
