KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 — With the arrival of the holy month of Ramadan in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Muslims in the country will have to get accustomed to observing the fasting month way different than the usual, more so with the movement control order imposed since March 18.

For the first time this year, Ramadan which is normally a sociable time, will see no communal tarawih prayers in the surau and mosques, no bonding over moreh meals, no group quran reading sessions or any religious ceremonies as well as no Ramadan bazaars to enliven the atmosphere.

However thanks to technology, the MCO enforcement has not stopped Muslims from making the necessary preparation for Ramadan

Research and development (R&D) intensity (expenditure on R&D as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product, GDP) in the OECD area rose from 2.37% in 2017 to 2.40% in 2018, according to the latest data published on February 28 in the OECD Main Science and Technology Indicators (MSTI) database. This increase, which follows a similar rise between 2016 and 2017, was driven by faster real growth in R&D expenditure (+3.8%) compared to GDP (+2.3%). The OECD area has not seen comparable growth in R&D expenditure over a two-year period since before the 2008 global financial crisis. Growth in R&D intensity was widespread across the majority of OECD countries in 2018, with the

Guiding Principles for Use of Technology with Early Learners

Guiding Principles for Use of Technology with Early Learners

The thoughtful use of technology by parents and early educators can engage children in key skills such as play, self-expression, and computational thinking which will support later success across all academic disciplines and help maintain young children’s natural curiosity.

The Departments recognize that families and early educators have many different options for using technology with early learners. The Departments believe that guidance needs to reflect the reality that families and early educators have access to apps, digital books, games, video chatting software, and a multitude of other interactive technologies that can be used with young children. Even as new technologies emerge, the Departments believe that these principles apply, though guidance may evolve as more research on this topic is published.

The Departments’ four guiding principles for use of technology with early learners are as follows:

  • Guiding Principle #1: Technology—when used appropriately—can

Marketing Technology Landscape Supergraphic (2019): Martech 5000 (actually 7,040)

UPDATE: The 2020 Marketing Technology Landscape is now available.

As Bill Murray would have said in Groundhog Day, “Well, it’s martech landscape day… again.”

It has become an annual tradition at our spring MarTech conference to release an updated version of maybe the most infamous slide in marketing: the marketing technology landscape. We’re keeping that custom alive this year again.

What a crazy graphic! We nicknamed it the “Martech 5000” a couple of years ago. While I like the ring of that — kinda rhymes with the Fortune 500 and the Inc. 5000 — it’s a misnomer. Last year’s landscape already exceeded 6,829 solutions.

We’re now up to 7,040 solutions on the 2019 Marketing Technology Landscape Supergraphic.

For perspective, here’s the growth of this project over the past 8 years:

Martech Landscape: 2011-2019
