What is NIE?
Newspapers In Education (NIE) is an exciting interactive program that engages students in learning by providing teachers access to the Austin American-Statesman for use in their classroom. The NIE program is designed to make reading newspapers a fun and beneficial learning experience.
NIE is a worldwide effort in which school textbooks and teacher materials are supplemented with the use of the local newspaper. This is accomplished everyday by providing a “living textbook” in a format that is less intimidating and more appealing to students.
The next version of Google's Daydream headsets will be stand-alone models, which means there are no cords, no wires and no additional devices required. They also will have a motion tracking ability, that gives the wearer the ability to move within the virtual space the headset created, rather than just looking around. The models are projected to cost in the mid-hundreds and could compete with upcoming stand-alone headsets from industry giants like Oculus.
