New MimioReading iPad App Expands Reading Comprehension Delivery and Learning Opportunities for Grades 3-8

Cambridge, MA, Dec 03, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Mimio, a global leader in interactive teaching technologies, has created an iPad app that broadens the ways in which teachers and students can use the MimioReading(TM) comprehension suite in the classroom and beyond. Designed as a companion to the comprehension suite, the new app gives anytime, anywhere access to interactive, mastery lessons on the four primary components of comprehension - finding facts, making inferences, identifying themes and the "main idea," and learning vocabulary in context.

"With the new MimioReading iPad app, schools have more freedom and flexibility in the ways in which they can provide individualized instruction for reading comprehension," says Manny Perez, general manager, Mimio. "It fits perfectly with our mission to continually expand the flexibility with which teachers can deliver lessons so that they can accommodate students' different learning styles and ability levels. Whether they choose computers, interactive whiteboards, handsets or now a tablet that's fast becoming a classroom favorite, our goal is to support that choice." Schools acquire the app when they purchase the MimioReading comprehension suite. Teachers can have students do MimioReading's age-appropriate content and challenging activities on iPads in the classroom, but they also have the option of activating at-home access for whichever student they choose. Families who have bought MimioReading for home use can download the app for themselves from the iTunes App Store at no cost.

Users can utilize the app to access MimioReading's component programs: MimioSprout(TM) Early Reading provides basic reading skills intervention for students in grade three and above.

MimioReading Individualized Instruction adapts to each student's specific learning pace, improving reading comprehension in grades three through five and providing effective intervention for grades five through eight.

MimioReading Group Instruction offers interactive group activities that can be adapted or edited to meet the needs of multiple students or the entire class in grades three through eight.

MimioStudio(TM) classroom software automatically integrates the entire MimioClassroom(TM) family of products "Our new app makes the most of the iPad's portability and potential for engagement," says Perez. "Students find touch technology more intuitive and engaging so the MimioReading iPad app gives them an extremely fun way to learn while they improve their retention and gain comprehension skills for mastering other curricular areas such as science, social studies, and mathematics."

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
