Fourier Education is proud to announce that their einstein™ Tablet+ has won the Digital Devices category at the 2014 Bett Awards. Serving as a mobile science learning workstation, the einsteinTM Tablet+ is a revolutionary new science exploration tablet for students in grades K-12.
The Bett Awards recognize the world’s most innovative and inspiring educational technologies and serve as an integral part of the Bett Show, the world’s largest event for learning technology that is held annually in London. Fourier Education continues to demonstrate its award winning einstein™ Tablet+ at booth B166 throughout this year’s show, which runs through January 25.
“We are delighted to be recognized by the best minds in the educational technology industry and thrilled to win this prestigious award that strongly affirms our mission,” said Ken Zwiebel, chief executive officer of Fourier Education. “We built this revolutionary digital science tablet understanding that the earlier we can excite our kids to the wonders of STEM, the more they will cultivate a passion for these fields, and the better they will perform in these areas throughout their schooling and careers.”
Fourier Education’s einstein™ Tablet+ not only acts as a familiar platform for teachers and students but it also includes everything teachers need to get their students actively engaged with real-world, hands-on science learning. The einstein™ Tablet+ is pre-loaded with multimedia experiments for biology, chemistry, environmental science, human physiology, and physics. Teachers and students can also easily create their own experiments on the tablet with the einstein™ Activity Maker.
Bett judges commented on Fourier Education’s win saying, “einsteinTM Science Learning Platform is a very good product which is ideally suited to supporting the new national curriculum. We like the design, branding and functionality and think the product is durable and robust. We particularly like the way it encourages students to interact and work collaboratively.”
The einstein™ Tablet+ includes eight built-in sensors that are commonly used in standard science curricula for students and teachers to conduct experiments. They include Humidity, UV, Heart Rate, Temperature, Light, Accelerometer, Microphone, and GPS. Teachers and students can also add an additional eight external sensors to run more complex and creative experiments.
In addition, the einstein™ Tablet+ also comes with MiLAB™ data analysis app, which allows students to easily collect, interpret, and understand data from their experiments. The tablet also features two built-in cameras, an HDMI port to connect to a projector or monitor, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and access to Google Drive and Google Play in addition to the full functionality of a standard Android device, supporting all applications compatible with Android OS.

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
