Husson University Sponsors EdCampBangor: First Year for Educational Event in Bangor Oct 25, 2014 03:08AM

Bangor, Maine (PRWEB) October 25, 2014

For the first time ever, EdCamp is coming to Bangor, Maine! This free professional development opportunity is open to all Maine educators working with students from Pre-K to 12th grade.

Unlike other professional development opportunities, participants in EdCampBangor will determine the content of the educational sessions the day of the event. This differs significantly from traditional conferences where the topics for the educational sessions are pre-determined prior to registrations.

"This is a unique opportunity for teachers to share information and ideas with their colleagues," said Gretchen Schaefer, an instructional technologist at Husson University. "It's a great way for teachers to learn more about the best practices at other school systems; ways to address classroom teaching challenges; and strategies to improve educational outcomes."

Husson University has donated the use of its Bangor campus for the event. The day will begin and end with a large group session in the Gracie Theatre. Participant-determined educational sessions will be held in the adjacent Beardsley Meeting House academic spaces.

The Maine Education Foundation will be sponsoring lunch at Husson's newly renovated Dickerman Dining Center. Rainstorm Consulting has provided some of the essential financial support necessary to hold the event.

Other sponsors include (in alphabetical order) ExplainEverything, Flocabulary, Kahoot!, Remind, StoryboardThat, ThingLink, VoiceThread, WeeBeez, Yapp and Zaption.

Interestingly, sponsors are not permitted to have their own special sessions or tables. Prior EdCamp participants from other states like that the conference format is solely devoted to the exchange of professional information.

"As one of Maine's premier providers of college degrees that lead to state teacher certification, we are proud to be the site of EdCampBangor," said Lynne Coy-Ogan, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at Husson University. "Husson believes in supporting the educational needs of teachers. No other profession makes as profound an impact on the lives of young people. Teachers are instrumental in keeping children on the path toward lifelong success."

EdCampBangor runs from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. this Saturday, October 25th. Attendance at the event is capped at 150 attendees. There is no charge to attend. For more information about EdCampBangor, visit edcampbangor.com.

For more than 100 years, Husson University has prepared future leaders to handle the challenges of tomorrow through innovative undergraduate and graduate degrees. With a commitment to delivering affordable classroom, online and experiential learning opportunities, Husson University has come to represent superior value in higher education. Our Bangor campus and off-campus satellite education centers in Southern Maine, Wells and Northern Maine provide advanced knowledge in business; health and education; pharmacy studies; science and humanities; as well as communication. In addition, Husson University has a robust adult learning program. For more information about educational opportunities that can lead to personal and professional success, visit Husson.edu.

Four Family Applications Powered by Intel were Featured on NewsWatch Television on October 16, 2014 Oct 25, 2014 03:08AM

Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 25, 2014

Four applications optimized for Android* tablets powered by Intel® Atom™ processors were featured on NewsWatch as part of its monthly AppWatch, which features the latest and coolest mobile applications on the iOS, Android, and Windows markets. Andrew Tropeano, a mobile technology expert and host of NewsWatch, conducted the app reviews and shared with viewers how each can enhance family time.

When everyone comes together it's important to capture the warmth of celebration so family members can remember it. The developers at Venticake created Retrica, a visually stunning photo app with preset filters like Vignette and Vintage. These unique effects give family shots a magical quality and tell the story of that moment.

Next, to add comedy to the moment, PhotoWarp by Tonuzaba Entertainment, is a hilarious way to play with and exaggerate physical features in photos. Users can create wacky family portraits using the bloat, pinch, and twirl tools and then share their new masterpieces with friends and family for hours of laughs.

There's a reason the holidays are the busiest time of the year for traveling. Most people have family members that live out of town. So for relatives who can't be together, the Threema messaging app by Threema makes sure that loved ones can securely communicate via end-to-end encrypted text, chat, or photos and video. Virtually sharing the holidays with far away family is the next best thing to having them there. Group chat makes it possible to visit and in today's world, it's good to know that it's on a secure platform.

The holidays are a great time for a new adventure. For anyone traveling during the holiday, Maps.Me has detailed maps and over a million points of interest for locations worldwide without the need for an Internet connection. It makes discovering new sights and sounds exciting and stress-free.

All four apps are optimized for Android* tablets powered by Intel® Atom™ processors. To download them, head to the Google Play store or visit https://software.intel.com/pams/android.
