A brief description of Normative Addendum 1,
by Clive Feather

Rather than delay the Standard to add full internationalization features,
ANSI agreed to add minimal features immediately, with ISO designing
a proper extension at a later date.  This work
– 4 years in the doing – has culminated in Normative Addendum 1.

    25 Easy Ways to Use Technology in the Classroom

    Although many technology-based teaching methods and resources effectively engage students and build their skills, many educators encounter difficulties when using technology in the classroom.

    Maybe a specific platform is too hard to introduce. Or maybe it won’t run on your devices. Despite the challenges, you likely want to enjoy the benefits that education technology can deliver.

    Using the ones that best apply to you and your students, and keeping the condensed list on your desk for quick reference, consider these 25 easy ways to use technology in the classroom:

    There are apps you can use to explore famous buildings, such as the Empire State Building, and natural phenomena, such as the Great Barrier Reef.

    Windows XP Internet Connection Sharing

    WinXP LogoInternet
    Connection Sharing (ICS) enables a Windows computer to share its
    Internet connection with computers on local area networks. It’s
    been around since Windows 98 SE, and with the launch of Windows
    XP, it’s only gotten better.

    Windows XP ICS has some notable advantages over the versions of
    ICS in Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows Me:

    • It’s easier
      to set up
      . There’s no software to install, and it doesn’t
      add any network components or protocols.
    • It’s much
      more reliable and much less likely to cause network problems.
    • You can create
      a Network Bridge connecting
      two or more local area networks and share the Internet connection
      with the computers on all of them. This is especially useful if
      your XP computer is connected to both a wired and wireless network.
    • ICS
      client computers can use XP’s
      Internet Gateway
      to monitor and control
