BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Technology is not that bad!!!

 

Technology is becoming more and more important. Have a look at this Lingohack episode:






LINGOHACK  >>>

  • Episode 191002 / 02 October 2019    >>>  Mind-reading machine helps man walk again:    Language related to 'technology'.  Need-to-know language: robotic, exoskeleton, implants, beamed & kit.

This reminds me of this previous post in this blog:

Christmas amazing story: One-armed teenager made himself a prosthetic extension arm out of LEGO blocks!!!!

 


Actually, our robotics teachers and students at IES Mediterráneo are doing a fantastic job at school. Here's the latest challenge they have in mind for the coming school year:






We wish them the best of lucks!!!



Nature is speaking. So listen!!!

  6. Nowadays we use the technology in our free time for searching information, for play videogames or we use the social networks, but in 15 years time the technolgy renplace the works that some people do today as work in the field or even in the office and, how will the technology make it? It is very easy, with robots!.
    Very few people use the technology for work or for help him in the work, but it have a benefit because in many works you need to know how to use the tecnology and if you know how to use it you will have more easily a work.
    In the future the people won´t do the hard works and it have a advantage, theirs bodies will be more rested, but it also can produce more health´s problems, because some people won´t make physical exercise, but it also have a problem because the people, that work on these jobs, won´t work because the robots will do theirs jobs.
    In my opinion that the robots will work in some jobs can be very good for us because the life will be more easy, and that the teenagers can make theirs own prosthetic extension arms or legs I think that is incredible.

  7. We use technologies for many things such as to search for information, to play video games or social networks, but in a few cases technology replaces the jobs of some people. The majority of jobs that replace people with robots are in factories ...
    Now, from an early age, they educate you with technologies, replace books with tablets, fool around making cars that move through programs ...
    When I entered the institute they told us that now most jobs are done by robots and that to work you have to know how to use new technologies.
    In my opinion I think on the one hand it is good that some jobs make them robots but on the other hand when putting robots there is less work for people.

  8. Nowadays, technology is taking a lot of problems but also many good things like helping to improve people's lives. Do you think the technology has more advantages or disadvantages?

    Among the new inventions of technology, is that of a French man paralyzed in an accident who has returned to walk thanks to an exoskeleton controlled by the brain, which gives hope to the quadriplegics who want to recover the movement.
    The doctors who helped him said that although the device would be publicly available in many years, it could improve the quality of life and autonomy of patients in the future.

    The patient whose name is Thibault, said that since he couldn't do anything with his body he wanted to do something with his brain. He trained for months, using his brain signals to control a computer simulated avatar to do basic movements before using the robot for walking. In addition, he trained using a video game avatar system to get the skills to operate the exoskeleton and had to relearn all natural movements. He used the avatar and the videogame to think about being able to do physical tasks like walking and approaching to touch objects. Using the avatar, the video game and the exoskeleton, he could do the duration of a soccer field and a half in the course of many sessions.

    Several studies have used implants to stimulate patients' muscles, but this research is the first to use brain signals to control a robot exoskeleton. Experts who helped in the study said that this research could help make wheelchairs controlled by the brain for paralytic patients.

    I think technology is good if we use it to help people, not to replace them. As for example,it has helped Thibault by giving him a new opportunity.

  9. We use technology to accomplish some tasks in our daily lives. We can describe technology as products and processes used to simplify our daily lives.

    We apply technology in almost everything we do in our daily lives; we use technology at work, we use technology for communication, transportation, learning, manufacturing, securing data, scaling businesses and so much more. Technology is human knowledge which involves tools, materials, and systems.

    Many companies are using technology to stay competitive, they create new products and services using technology, and they also use technology to deliver those products and services to their customers. A good example is mobile phones companies like Apple & Samsung, that they use technology to create new smartphones and other electronic devices to stay competitive.

  13. Saying that technology is a subject without an exit is living in the past, nowadays, all these things we do in our daily routine are monitorized by robots, from eating (by intelligent bands) to sleeping or running. And, of course, if studying this could bring you a good job and a good salary, we should study this things at school.

    Like the video in this post shows, at IES Mediterraneo, we have been studying robotics since 2016, a subject where we learn how a robot work, and we make our owns robots and video games. When I first came to this school, I saw that subject and I thought it could be an incredible chance to bring the things I love to the school, and study it like a hobby more than like a subject. I´ve been studying robotics for 4 years, and now I think I can do very well at the subject. It´s interesting to see how the world is changing and learn how to take advantage of that.

    In summary, to all the people who don´t really knows if it´s ok to study this or it is useless, of course it´s useful, it is a thing that can help you in a future that isn´t too far, and maybe, can give you the chance to get the job you´ve always wanted.

  14. The technology is very good to for the world, because now with the technology you can do a one operation or cirugian intervenition, that is to say nowdays the technology can salve lives, now the technology stay in everywhere, with the thecnology you can to size heart rate while running, create robots to for facilitate ours lives. All these things we do in our daily routine are monotorized by robots, from eating by intelligent band to sleeping, running...

    I like this video in this post shows, at IES Mediterráneo, we have been studying robotics since 2016, a subjects where we learn how a robot work, and we make or owns robots and video games. When i arrived at this school i saw really ineteresting this subject and I decide to study this subject, I have been studying for 3 years, this course I decide to change for TIC where I stay learning new things and things of the really computing, that to say that in this subject you don't study how you can create a robots or video games, you learn about the story of the technology and you learn a lot of things of the computers and various programs that we can use. I think or recomend that the people that arrives to the Mediterraneo must to study (Robotic) and when they arrives at 4ºESO change a nd start to study (TIC: Computing).

    In summary, to all the people who don't really knows if it's ok this to study this or it is useless, of course it's useful, it is a things that can help you in the future, because in the future everyworld it will work with technology and robots and it is good to open it, and if you study this subjets you can have more posibility in the future to have a good job.

    1. When we talk about technology, we have to think of several areas within our society, not everything should be to invest in new phones, new PCs or new televisions, ...
      Every day there is news about advances in technology to improve at work.
      I think it should be that way, because technology helps us achieve amazing things.
      A few days ago, in a programme of scientific advancement, scientists talked about the latest technological advances in genetics, about a new technique that modifies genes to correct and prevent diseases.
      In my opinion to advance technologically, our society has to invest money, there are many diseases that scientists can correct, as in the case just mentioned.
      Also in other sectors, with the right technology, we can improve our lives.
      For example, there is technological machinery that recycles the air, removes some of the carbon dioxide from the air and obtains energy.
      The environmental pollution that exists in many large cities can be reduced a little by these technological advances.

  16. It is true, technology is not so bad, it has helped us and it is helping us a lot of things, both in medicine and in cars. Technology has made a great development in our lives.

    For example:
    Technology in the world of medicine making medical practices much more efficient and faster. Currently, thanks to the software created for the healthcare sector, a large volume of very useful and relevant patient data can be stored. In addition to that machines have been invented with much more precision to perform operations.

    Technology in the educational world allows the use of more interactive tools that keep the attention of students more easily. Apart from that there are more ways to find information and learn more.

    In these two examples, technology has helped a lot, but it always has to be without abuse, because everything in excess is bad.

  17. Technology today is becoming increasingly important. We use technology for many things; to freeze food, to heat meals, to do a lot of things, to play videogames... I love technology because I can create a robot to do what I tell him, to program a videogame and then play it. Technology is to help people with their problems...
