The most important Android O features you should know about

However, the feature set is revealed with the release of a developer preview build. Google is making a number of big changes to the user experience with some cool video stuff, remoulded notifications, improved power savings on background processes, and more.

Integrating Apps to enhance learning

As an educator with a passionate interest in the potential of new technologies, it strikes me how learning opportunities have widened significantly in the last decade. In part, this has been due to the spread of knowledge enabled by tools like apps and Wikipedia, as well as intelligent voice recognition platforms, such as Siri, Google and Cortana, all of which make the learning process more interactive and engaging, helping with motivation and grasping new concepts.

I've found, though, that all this does is keep me steady and complacent; I'm not developing my skills so much as repeating that which I can already do. A project comes in, and in a short stretch of time, it needs to be designed and sent out for build. Because of this, I have little time in my working week to learn, get truly creative and improve my personal skill set.
