How to use ‘TechReport’ to create a better learning experience
A new technology called ‘Techreport’ has been developed that will help you study faster, with more detail, and to better understand the world around you.
The tech helps users analyse data in real-time, by looking at the patterns in the data, which are often complex and often inaccurate.
Using the tech, students can see patterns in their own work and understand why certain things happen or why things are different.
Students can use the tech to look at the data that they are working on, and then analyse the data using the new ‘Tech Report’ to help them understand how to improve their understanding of the data.
TechReport is being used by students from Okaloosa Technical College to help students understand how they are doing on their own, by using a visualisation tool to help understand how their work is progressing.
This project was funded by the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), with help from the Australian Government Science and Engineering Research Agency (AGSERA).
This is the first project funded by AGSERA to tackle an academic project, and is a collaboration between the University’s Department of Education and Arts, and the Australian National University.
UTS was awarded $300,000 for the project and it is currently in the process of securing the funding for its final phase of work.
“The TechReport is an innovative and cost-effective tool that allows students to analyse the patterns of data in their work and to understand how these patterns are being represented in the world,” said Dr Lisa Brown, the Director of the Department of Engineering at UTS.
It is part of a broader project by the Department to help schools, universities and businesses to better manage data and data-related issues.
Technology is a rapidly evolving area of study and is becoming increasingly important for businesses, academics and government agencies to improve and make use of.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, data analytics accounted for 16 per cent of Australia’s GDP in 2018, up from 14 per cent in 2018.
Data analytics are being used in everything from financial management to health, energy and healthcare, from education to health services.
What’s new in this week’s Science & Engineering news?
A report into the future of Australia by the Australian Institute of Technology has found that Australians are becoming increasingly concerned about climate change.
Key points: In a survey of 1,500 Australians, 88 per cent said climate change is a serious and pressing problem that affects all Australians and that Australia needs to act now to reduce the impact of climate change Australia has the world’s largest population of students, with the second highest number of people aged 15 to 24 in Australia.
Professor Greg Laughlin from the University School of Economics said Australia’s reliance on international students had grown dramatically, and was now one of the main reasons students did not study in Australia in the past.
As a result, the country was falling behind other countries in terms of how many students studied in Australia, and that was one of several reasons that made it hard for Australian universities to attract and retain international students.
Australia was also the only country to see a decline in the proportion of students from Asian backgrounds in Australia’s university ranks.
Prof Laughlin said there was an opportunity for Australia to improve its global competitiveness, and it would be good for the country if international students could be more readily recruited to study in the country.
“We have been a world leader in attracting and retaining international students, and they should be more easily attracted and more easily trained,” he said.
“If you can get more people to study, you will be able to attract more students, so it’s good for Australia and good for all of us.”
The study found that the proportion who believed that climate change was a serious problem that affected all Australians had grown to 79 per cent, from 55 per cent a decade earlier.
Meanwhile, in the United States, the proportion saying climate change posed a serious threat to global climate change has fallen from 79 per c to 69 per cent over the past decade, and in the UK, it is down from 81 per cent to 68 per cent.
In other news, an Australian company has developed a new smartphone app that helps people manage their bank accounts and pay bills more easily.
Tiger Financial said its app, called TigerPay, was designed to help users keep track of money, credit cards and car payments.
‘TigerPay’ was developed to help customers manage their accounts in an easier way.
Users can create a PIN to keep their money safe, or use a PIN pad or an email address to log in to a bank or credit card account.
Customers can pay their bills online or over the phone, and can keep track and manage their spending on their phones.
Its also possible to check how much money has been spent on a specific payment in a range of apps
