In the 21st century, most classrooms around the globe are bringing more advanced technology in classrooms to increase class participation, academic interest, and success of every student. In the U.S., most of the schools from elementary to high school have already adopted smart gadgets which include MacBook, Chromebook, and iPad. Students are able to study their subjects in a brand new way. For instance, Apple's new macOS Mojave.

Tech companies like Google, Microsoft, and Apple are considering the importance of education, and are developing technologies to help learn much easier and faster. I remember submitting homework written on paper with pencil, and how tough it was. I wish I had these cool gadgets when I was in elementary or middle school. Every technology comes with pros and cons, and these new features do as well.

So, teachers and parents have a responsibility to keep an eye on their kids and keep up with these technologies. Here are some apps and features to use in the classroom.

1. Screenshots and quick looks

Do you ever want to take notes on articles or ebook? Now, you will be able to utilize the easy-to-use menu to take screenshots and send right away without saving it. Then, using the quick look feature, you will be able to edit the file without even opening it.

2. Click it and it’s in your Mac

https://www.apple.com/macos/mojave-preview/

Have you ever wanted to take notes on the picture of black/whiteboard or slides from your class? Now, you will be able to do that in real-time using the continuity camera. This feature will help you organize those class notes photos.

3. FaceTime with up to 32 people at once

https://www.apple.com/macos/mojave-preview/

If you have a large group of friends, do you ever have trouble FaceTiming with everyone when you were planning a trip? Or do you ever want to FaceTime with your employers who work in the different locations? FaceTime will allow up to 32 people at the same time with a large photo of the person speaking in the group. Also, if you're taking online classes, your professors and classmate will be able to FaceTime for interactive activities.

4. Your very own memoji and animoji

Memoji will be your new friend who will entertain you and your friends when you're bored. Memoji will be available for who owns iPhone X, for now. A customizable memoji means that you can show your moods and feelings.

5. Robust privacy features

Nowadays, you may start worrying about your privacy while you search or share on the web. Well, Apple is taking this issue seriously and asking for its users' permission before accessing their data. Besides, Safari will prevent share and comment buttons on web pages from tracking you without your consent.

6. Screen time feature

https://www.apple.com/ios/ios-12-preview/

In the age where we are becoming more obsessed with technology, we need to find a way to take a break sometimes to spend some time with friends and family. Especially for kids, it's vital to keep encouraging them to participate in more outdoor activities. So, this screen time feature will help you manage how much time you and your family spend on these gadgets.

7. Augmented reality apps for education

https://www.apple.com/ios/augmented-reality/

Have you ever wished that you could see the Colossus of Nero or how a human brain looks like from the inside-out? Well, you will be able to bring your imagination, historical architecture, animals, and human organs on your hand, in 3D using new Augmented Reality apps like "My Very Hungry Caterpillar," "Monster Park," and "Complete Anatomy."

8. Machine learning (Core ML2) and ARKit2 for developers

https://developer.apple.com/machine-learning/

If you ever wanted to train your own neural network or implement machine learning algorithms in your apps, you would have to have lots of knowledge and experience in order to build. However, you will be able to implement machine learning in your apps like you would use some libraries using XCode 10 IDE or whatever you prefer to use.


Apple has always attracted their users by introducing new apps and technology that would make people spend hours with it. Here, they nailed it again. It's great to see how giant tech companies are trying to develop tools for education. An iOS 11.3 has just launched more than 100 brand new emojis.

Antonio Brown Vs. JuJu Smith-Schuster

AB's low-blow at JuJu has put a target on his back for the impending 2019 season.

Recently, Raiders wide-receiver Antonio Brown initiated a Twitter "war" after Steelers wide-receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was named MVP for the 2018 season. Brown retaliated with a response to a tweet shared by a fan that sparked a fire and brought emotions to an all time high within the NFL fan base. All of which took place after the former wide-receiver for Pittsburgh previously tweeted "Keep your emotions off the internet" just hours earlier, acting as if he is the herald of good advice. Ever since then AB has been nothing but emotional, even taking down a former teammate in the process.

Personal Twitter Screenshot

We've all been exposed to AB's attitude since he was drafted to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010, but it's gotten worse over time. Still, Pittsburgh fans disregarded his actions for a while because of his skills on the field and million dollar smile. His charm and endless pictures of his children always, if not most of the time, managed to get the fans of Steeler Nation to turn a blind eye to his mischievous ways- at least until the past few seasons. It seemed that his attitude had gotten worse, along with his sense of entitlement and spreading of hate and jealousy toward his fellow players. His attitude and purposeful actions eventually granted his wish of being traded from the Steelers, ending up as the Raiders' new wide-receiver. Ever since the trade, his ruthless attitude and ongoing hypocrisy continues to ascend to greater levels than before, after JuJu fired back at Antonio with a dose of his own medicine.

Personal Twitter Screenshot

Immediately following, JuJu expressed the betrayal and disrespect he received, regardless of the fact that he practically idolized AB since he got drafted in 2017. The rookie MVP called out the Pittsburgh veteran for the size of his ego and ability to fire shots at people that adored him. If anything, this debacle was an enlightening event for the young WR and is now aware of what kind of person his former idol is.

Personal Twitter Screenshot

Following this, AB decided to take advantage of one of his known slogans #CallGod a few days after the fact. Instead of continuing his antagonizing behavior, he decided to quote the Bible as if it would excuse his initial shot toward JuJu. In doing so, he decided to carefully pick verses from Luke 6 in order to fit his own egotistical agenda.

Personal Twitter Screenshot

"But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return." Luke 6:35, a verse that is visibly ignored to avoid contradictions for his recent actions. As we can see in the tweet thread, fans are recognizing the hypocrisy that Antonio Brown is proudly exuding and are emphasizing it. AB's repugnant attitude and "preaching" has pushed fans to see that Brown will betray anyone who attempts to take his spotlight, regardless of him making the same mistakes in past seasons. The once-beloved, former Pittsburgh WR is ready and willing to place blame on fellow teammates but will very rarely take blame for his own faults. Because of this trait and actions that have followed, Brown now has a target on his back for the 2019 season.

Personal Twitter Screenshot

The NFC is ready to avenge JuJu Smith-Schuster and I don't believe Antonio realizes what he's gotten himself into. It's no secret that Brown has quick feet and can run across the field with great speed and agility, but people always find a way when rage drives them. It seems as if JuJu has great support across the entirety of the NFL, regardless of rivalries that exist.

Let's remember: Antonio Brown was in his prime with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Raiders are getting the aftermath that won't last much longer. It wouldn't surprise me if the Raiders make arrangements for someone to buy-out his three-year contract if his attitude doesn't improve. No team, no coach, will tolerate Antonio longer than Coach Tomlin did. Regardless, AB better start taking his "Call God" slogan seriously because he might need the Big-Man soon if he continues his disgusting and childish shenanigans.
