If you were to guess where and in what era the most effective classroom of all eternity was, what would you say? Would you say Plato´s forums in Athens, or perhaps Albert Einstein´s lecture halls in Switzerland? The most effective classroom of all eternity is in fact right here, in the 21st century. It can be found right on your own laptop, in the comfort of your own home. The most effective classroom of all eternity is none other than Google Hangouts. Google Hangouts allows students to learn and educators to teach from remote locations, eliminating many issues that come with teaching in a traditional classroom, all while increasing quality of learning. Students are allowed to be interactive on forums, and teachers don´t have to waste time traveling to different locations. This makes great teachers accessible to a wider range of learners. In this guide, Kozak explains how best to utilize Google Hangouts in your own classroom. He has a unique take on strategies for teachers that will help make your virtual classroom a supersonic powerhouse that far exceeds a traditional classroom and will keep your students engaged. 1.

In June 2011, Julian Assange received an unusual visitor: the chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, arrived from America at Ellingham Hall, the country residence in Norfolk, England where Assange was living under house arrest. For several hours the besieged leader of the world’s most famous insurgent publishing organization and the billionaire head of the world’s largest information empire locked horns. The two men debated the political problems faced by society, and the technological solutions engendered by the global network - from the Arab Spring to Bitcoin. They outlined radically opposing perspectives: for Assange, the liberating power of the Internet is based on its freedom and statelessness. For Schmidt, emancipation is at one with US foreign policy objectives and is driven by connecting non-Western countries to American companies and markets. These differences embodied a tug-of-war over the Internet’s future that has only gathered force subsequently. When Google Met WikiLeaks presents the story of Assange and Schmidt’s encounter. Both fascinating and alarming, it contains an edited transcript of their conversation and extensive, new material, written by Assange specifically for this book, providing the best available summary of his vision for the future of the Internet. 1.

Johnson shows how understanding the roots of innovation can lead to individual creative breakthroughs. 336 pp. 100,000 print. A fascinating deep dive on innovation from the New York Times bestselling author of How We Got To Now and Farsighted The printing press, the pencil, the flush toilet, the battery--these are all great ideas. But where do they come from? What kind of environment breeds them? What sparks the flash of brilliance? How do we generate the breakthrough technologies that push forward our lives, our society, our culture? Steven Johnson´s answers are revelatory as he identifies the seven key patterns behind genuine innovation, and traces them across time and disciplines. From Darwin and Freud to the halls of Google and Apple, Johnson investigates the innovation hubs throughout modern time and pulls out the approaches and commonalities that seem to appear at moments of originality.

A mysterious disorder threatens to destroy the world in this high-concept thriller from Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Matt Richtel, which combines medical science, cutting-edge technology, and breathtaking suspense in the vein of Michael Crichton. An airplane lands at a desolate airport in a remote Colorado ski town. Onboard, Dr. Lyle Martin, a world-class infectious disease specialist, is brusquely awakened to shocking news: Everyone not on the plane appears to be dead. A lethal new kind of virus may have surfaced, threatening our survival, and now Martin - one of the most sought after virologists on the planet until his career took a precipitous slide - is at the center of the investigation. The symptoms are the most confounding the experienced doctor has ever seen. Is it the work of terrorists? A biological attack? A natural occurrence? As word of the deadly sickness spreads, panic leads to violence and chaos. Armed and terrified partisans and patriots, stoked by technology and social media, have dug in, unknowingly creating fertile ground for the deadly syndrome Dr. Martin has begun to identify. As the globe begins to unravel and paranoia and hatred take hold, Martin is forced to face a question as terrifying as this syndrome itself: Is the world better left unsaved? Moving at a breakneck pace from the labs of the Centers for Disease Control to the secret campus of Google X to the marble halls of the Capitol, Dead on Arrival is a brilliantly imaginative high-concept thriller that draws on Matt Richtel´s years of science and technology reporting for the New York Times and establishes him as one of the premier technological thriller writers working today. 1.

Thrills, spills, and cheating death are just part of an average day on a not-so-average summer vacation for these two smarty-pants siblings. Coke and Pepsi McDonald are still stuck on the wacky family road trip that began in Mission Unstoppable, and now a brand-new evil mastermind is trying to kill them! Coke and Pepsi McDonald never asked to be geniuses. They never asked to get lowered into a basket of boiling french fries, either. And they certainly never asked to be frozen in soft-serve ice cream, stampeded in a wild stadium riot, or kidnapped on a high-speed roller coaster. But that´s what happens when a red-haired villain named Archie Clone is chasing you across America. This just might be the most dangerous road trip in history - and the most awesome! Want to join in the fun? Fire up the old Google Maps and follow the McDonald twins as they get chased from the National Mustard Museum to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And whatever you do - never say genius. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Goldstrom. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/005882/bk_blak_005882_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
