Students with complete control over their laptops? For one district, it hasn't been a disaster.

One-to-one laptop programs for K-12 districts generally are built around the notion of control, with tight limits on what kind of software students can load and run. One district in Pennsylvania, however, is finding success by taking a different approach. The one-to-one initiative at Penn Manor School District looks like similar ones nationwide: Students in grades 5-12 receive personalized laptops with pre-installed operating systems to use both in school and at home, effectively placing everyone on a level playing field in terms of hardware access.

Wyoming passes forward-thinking computer science education bill

With a population of just 579,315, Wyoming is positioning itself to become a leader in one of the fastest-growing industries in the world: cybersecurity.Gov. Matt Mead's signature on Senate File 29 finalized a three-year process for transforming the state into one of the biggest promoters of K-12 computer science education in the country. The law has several functions, the most important of which is adding computer science to the state's Common Core. Every K-12 school in the state will be required to teach computer science no later than 2022-23 school year.

Google Is Working on Its Own Blockchain-Related Technology

Google is working on blockchain-related technology to support its cloud business and head off competition from emerging startups that use the heavily-hyped technology to operate online in new ways, according to people familiar with the situation. Companies use blockchain and other so-called digital ledgers to securely record transactions and process other data over the internet -- a service Google could use, for example, to reassure customers that their information is protected when stored on the giant network of computer servers that power its cloud services.

IBM Cloud Floats Power9 ‘Volta’ Servers

At IBM’s inaugural Think 2018 conference and third US-based OpenPower summit, the tech giant is trumpeting swelling momentum for its OpenPower ecosystem and traction for Power9, including Google’s disclosure that its custom-built (by Rackspace) Power9 “Zaius” servers are “Google strong,” i.e., market ready. IBM is also welcoming the Power servers, backed by Nvidia V100 GPUs, into its cloud.

How the Cloud Is Falling Short for HPC

The last couple of years have seen cloud computing gradually build some legitimacy within the HPC world, but still the HPC industry lies far behind enterprise IT in its willingness to outsource computational power. The most often touted reason for this is cost – but such a simple description hides a series of more interesting causes for the lukewarm relationship the HPC community has with public cloud providers. Here, we explore how things stand in 2018 – and more importantly, what the cloud vendors need to do if they want to make their services competitive with on-premise HPC.
