E3 Kicks off Today


I don't know if it is required for Tech People be a gamer as well, but it wouldn't be hard to imagine. :)

E3 (or the Electronic Entertainment Expo) is an annual press conference in which major providers of home entertainment showcase what is to come in the following year. Although not usually geared to education, this conference can give an insight into what will be possible in the coming years.

For example, Sony and Nintendo announced 3D gaming at E3 over 5 years ago. Although 3D seems to be abandoned in the home entertainment world for now, EdTech companies are now offering 3D learning platforms.

Virtual Reality gaming is close to becoming a reality (pardon the pun) in the home entertainment world. There may be some demonstrations at E3 this year. When will this technology come to education and what impact will it have?

Making a Silhouette in Microsoft Word

I had a teacher ask me about how to make a Silhouette without using something like Photoshop. There are some photo editing tools online that could accomplish this for a fee. However, if you already have Microsoft Word, this may be a quick and easy way for you.
