SORT BY Relevancy
Digital inclusion - closing the technology gap between the have's and have not's - may be a priority for some federal and state agencies, but the delivery of measurable results happens mostly at the local level. This is particularly true for broadband. Too many variations between cultures, geography, economic priorities, languages and other factors exist for cookie cutter attempts to get underserved constituents online AND maximizing broadband technology.
A Broadband Technologies Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant to the City of Chicago launched activities to educate and motivate constituents within nine Smart Communities to use the Net. Karen Mossberger, Ph.D., School of Public Affairs, Arizona State University, describes the impacts of programs that included workshops, advertising, skills training, and community portals. Dr. Mossberger's team conducted surveys in 2008, 2011 and 2013 to compare adoption and usage between the Smart Communities and the rest of Chicago.
Listeners learn some of the how-to's for creating and implementing effective digital inclusion programs. In addition, Dr. Mossberger reveals some of the trendsetting methods she used to measure the results that adoption programs produce, as well as upcoming research that will shed more light on how to create successful programs.
Though occasionally the butt of political humor, Toronto is no joke when it comes of using technology to improve Canada's largest city's economic future, Toronto began serious efforts to capitalize on Internet networks when Muni WiFi was all the rage in 2005, and WiFi emerged again in 2013 as a key technology for the city as they tackle digital inclusion issues. However, its plans to use a gigabit network as part of an aggressive economic development project on the waterfront helped catapult the city to the coveted title of Intelligent Community of the Year.
After an exhaustive survey of over 400 communities worldwide, the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) staff determined Toronto to be the leader of the pack. Waterfront Toronto President and CEO John Campbell discusses the role of broadband in its $35 billion revitalization project. An estimated 12,000 new residents are targeted to receive a 100 Mpbs service, while local businesses should see 10 gigabit services.
ICF is a think tank that studies the economic and social development of the 21st Century community. It's Intelligent Community awards salute the accomplishments of communities in developing inclusive prosperity on a foundation of information and communications technology,
Gigabit broadband is going to expand the digital divide in some areas, at least in the short term, because gigs go where the money is. Wireless enjoys some advantages in costs and quick deployment that make it a valuable digital inclusion tool for underserved communities today and a backup solution for tomorrow.
Tony Schloss, Director of Community Initiatives for the Red Hook Initiative in Brooklyn, NY, is using a wireless mesh network as a job creator and a tool for economic development. Nearly half of economic development pros in a recent survey believe broadband networks can be used to encourage individual entrepreneurship among underserved constituents. Schloss tells listeners how they can achieve these objectives in their communities.
Listeners get an overview of how to raise money and deploy wireless technology, mobilize people to organize and participate in digital programs, help develop basic applications, create community-centric content and keep operations going. Schloss also discusses some of Red Hook's successes working with youths and what steps communities can take to replicate these.

This may be the first evidence that Russia was responsible for the disappearance of MH30 as well.
We will also touch on Alien Technology provided by Norse Corp that helps researchers track realtime digital cyber attacks.

Hosts Jesse and Cody discuss the problems facing a married couple, as the husband emailed his wife a spreadsheet detailing her "excuses" for not engaging in sex, whilst she posts said spreadsheet on the popular Reddit image board; is the blame for their failing marriage to be found with one side or the other, or on the loss of real human connection and communication in an incresingly digital society? Next, Jesse and Cody discuss the attacks on conspiracy theories rising up in the awake on the downed Malaysia Airline Flight MH17. Such attacks appear less on countering incorrect data, but the beggining salvos of a battle against worldviews, the attempts of those who hold power in politics and culture to monopolize "reality" and destroy their competitors.

When someone mentions standards in education most people assume they are referring to curriculum or instructional standard. Get ready to delve into the world of technical standards that serve as the foundation of our digital offerings. We’ll take a look at a wide variety of such standards and examine how they impact your product implementation, platform support, and business development.
For those of you who shy away from the technical, this is an opportunity to unwrap some of the jargon you hear but have been too embarrassed to ask about… xml, HTML5, APIP, Dublin Core, RDFa all sound familiar but you have no idea what they mean? Stop just nodding knowingly and learn what you need to know to engage in discussion about how to apply these standards to make the best products.
For those propeller heads out there, we have a seat at the Table for you as well. Get up to date on the latest happenings on several different standards and join the online discussion. It’s a veritable technical feast!
Knowledge is key to driving business and structuring your solutions so you can address the needs of your customers. Join host Michael Jay and guests as they explore the structure behind standards and answer questions such as:
How are instructional standards continuing to evolve?
What are the impacts instructional standards have on teaching and learning?
What standards are used by publishers and development shops?
What impact do standards have on my business?
Experts and beginners alike can embrace the value of understanding more about standards, and the common misconceptions.

This program was recorded before a live studio audience in the Carlton Union Building at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we have a conversation with the students of Stetson about faith and the relevance of religion for the Millennial generation in the 21st century. (This episode is presented here with permission.)
The Pew Research Center says: "By some key measures, Americans ages 18 to 29 are considerably less religious than older Americans. Fewer young adults belong to any particular faith community compared to older people today. Also they’re less likely to be religiously affiliated than their parents’ and grandparents’ were, when younger. Fully one fourth of the Millennial generation are unaffiliated with any particular faith group. And more young people say that religion 'isn’t very important in their lives' compared to the elder generation."
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. These young adults have some “significant” questions for us around the issues of inclusion regarding faith communities and religious authority.
