I often teach remotely. I use Skype and an application for a White Board. I love Bing Academic tools for a variety of reasons. Are there more teaching tools on Windows 10 or through Bing that I am missing out? I work with teens and it is helpful for me to have links or tools to share with the student through the Skype Chatbox so that they can apply what I am teaching them and have a source to go back to when I am not around to guide them through a problem.

Six ways Minecraft can help kids and adults learn
Seems a lot of kids - and many adults - are playing Minecraft. Why? Beneath its blocky appearance is a sophisticated and fun game that any age can learn from.
Writer's Exercise Software for Microsoft Word
I have been thinking how helpful it would be to have software that can be set alongside a Microsoft Document that exercises a writer's momentum, that can be used to stimulate a writer out of writer's block, or even basic training skills (such as defragmenting or verb confusion correction). I could imagine that the seniority that Microsoft is able to create such software from, the programs would be worthwhile and a lot of fun!
Artificial Intelligence? Bring it on!
Some people I have spoken with are concerned about the rise and usage of 'artificial intelligence' in their daily lives. The thought of 'connectivity and integration' appears to be the nub of their concerns. I respect these views; however, my own view is very different. Artificial intelligence are algorithms that have intuitive code embedded in the source programs. Nothing really complicated in that. The more we inculcate AI in our computing devices, the more we can utilise 'machine power'. So here is my challenge to Microsoft - bring it on ladies and gentlemen, bring it on - let this community test the AI computing power and even suggest their own ideas on maximising AI on their devices. The recent new build of Windows 10 with the enhancements in assistive technologies are fantastic - it is possible to improve on this current offering. Just my #PoV.
The great dilemma.
Over many years, starting with DOS, I have seen operating systems come and go. When they do, forums like this always throw up the views of lovers and haters. Unbalanced views are the main reason I stay away from social media in general, because I try to look past my own narrow view of what is best. The world turns, not about me, but about every user and their diverse needs. In my world, computers do something useful like engineering calculation or photo manipulation. Things I couldn't do realistically or creatively without one. In the days of DOS, a computer did amazing things for me. I wrote software that designed and plotted timber frame homes. Something way ahead of what most companies at the time had to work with. Windows arrived on the scene and was more trouble than it was worth, to me, being hampered by a graphical interface that served no practical purpose. The mouse was the most useful advance of the time, back then. We all hate change when we have to face learning a different way of doing something that we did perfectly well before. As I saw it, newer versions of windows added many different ways of doing the same thing. Another unnecessary distraction because those changes bloated the interface making it harder to work quickly. I could still revert to DOS, (no I couldn't, actually) or an earlier OS like my favourite Win 7. Why don't I, probably for the same reason as those who have progressed to Win 10, latest update version. We hope we will discover something new and exciting in it. Sadly, we don't make that discovery, but we do still upgrade and chase that foolish illusion. I can't help myself and I doubt anyone else can, either. What I also see in these advancements is the challenge Microsoft (and Apple) have. How to invent a new wheel, one that looks better than the old round one and does all the things their own advertising agents think customers desperately want. The customer, like me, seems to be the problem. Stop using what we don't need.
