Swedish Student-Teachers In Digital Activities: Digital Competence Through Development-Oriented Thesis Projects
Department of Pedagogy and Learning, Linnaeus University, Kalmar, Sweden
This article defines attempts using development-oriented thesis projects to increase teachers’ and pupils’ digital capability. To offer a more practice-oriented focus in the teacher education, the elementary school student-teachers were stimulated to participate in thesis projects with the purpose of developing the school events.Thirteen of the development-oriented thesis projects carried out during 2015-2018 involved testing the student-teacher’s ability to study and formulate the competence needs regarding digital learning at the practicum-school, as well as the results of carrying out activities for increasing the digital competence. The investigation is based on a review of completed thesis projects, process journals, and presentations and discussions in subsequent reports. An initial analysis of the thirteen development projects reveals two clear goal directions. One focus is on traditional knowledge goals and the other on more social goals. The outcomes clearly show that development-oriented thesis projects can be an effective way to increase the digital skills of teachers and pupils. Projects with distinct goals for collaboration and shared learning have reached further goal attainment than the projects focused more on discrete instruction and learning.When digital tools were used as a means to work with another area, for example, physical activity or democracy issues, the developed competence in digital skills became more pronounced and lasting. Digital competence is an important development area for school activities, and this study shows that development-oriented thesis projects can be an effective means toward a successful project.

Fire alarms and building security systems are currently separate systems and are liable to monthly fees. Video recording for closed-circuit television (CCTV) is done locally subsequently requiring high storage space. Whenever there is a break-in, the footage records can be stolen consequently losing data. To address high data storage space, monthly premium subscriptions, cost of separate systems and data loss issues of the aforementioned systems, we design and implement a Raspberry-pi based fire and intrusion detection systems in this work. The system sends an SMS in the case of an intrusion or fire detection, and then records and uploads the surveillance videos. The system used a GSM modem for sending SMSs, a video, a PIR sensor to detect motion and a smoke or heat sensor to detect fire. The system is a low cost combined home security and fire detection Raspberry-pi system intended for home and small offices use.

An Approach To Extracting Distributed Data From The Integrated Environment Of Web Technologies Based On Set Theory
Cheikh Ould El Mabrouk and Karim Konaté

The composition and extraction of the information distributed by the different web technologies allow a design of a multifunction imported data environment. However, the problems of integration and communication between the heterogeneous data web always (lodges) on distributed servers.
In fact, Web technologies have been proposed to meet certain needs related to heterogeneous and distributed information systems for communicating and exchanging computerized data on the Web. Further more, web generations go through client-server communication (from a static, dynamic and semantic web human client) to server-server communication.
For this purpose, Web services are technology application integration by excellence across the Internet. They operate independently of the heterogeneities of the system components on which they are based and are weakly coupled software components interacting with each other.
This paper aims to achieve a management approach to extracting and modeling distributed information based on set theory and calculate the execution time of a query to this distributed data

2Computer Department, FCE Pankshin, Nigeria
One of the primary roles of the operating system is job scheduling. Oftentimes, what makes the difference between the performance of one operating system over the other could be the underlying implementation of its job scheduling algorithm. This paper therefore examines, under identical conditions and parameters, the comparative performances of First Come First Serve (FCFS), Shortest Job Next (SJN) and Round Robin (RR) scheduling algorithms. Simulation results presented in this paper serve to stimulate further research into the subject area.

Performance Evaluation Of Parallel Bubble Sort Algorithm On Supercomputer Iman1
Reem Saadeh and Mohammad Qatawneh
Department of Computer Science, King Abdullah II School for Information Technology, The University of Jordan, Amman, Jordan
Parallel sorting algorithms order a set of elements USING MULTIPLE processors in order to enhance the performance of sequential sorting algorithms. In general, the performance of sorting algorithms are EVALUATED IN term of algorithm growth rate according to the input size. In this paper, the running time, parallel speedup and parallel efficiency OF PARALLEL bubble sort is evaluated and measured. Message Passing Interface (MPI) IS USED for implementing the parallel version of bubble sort and IMAN1 supercomputer is used to conduct the results. The evaluation results show that parallel bubble sort has better running time as the number of processors increases. On other hand, regarding parallel efficiency, parallel bubble sort algorithm is more efficient to be applied OVER SMALL number of processors.

Intrusion Detection System (IDS) has been an effective way to achieve higher security in detecting malicious activities for the past couple of years. Anomaly detection is an intrusion detection system. Current anomaly detection is often associated with high false alarm rates and only moderate accuracy and detection rates because it’s unable to detect all types of attacks correctly. An experiment is carried out to evaluate the performance of the different machine learning algorithms using KDD-99 Cup and NSL-KDD datasets. Results show which approach has performed better in term of accuracy, detection rate with reasonable false alarm rate.

Buying a car entails a cost, not counting the day to day high price tag of gasoline. People are looking for viable means of transportation that is cost-effective and can move its way through traffic faster. In the Philippines, motorcycle was the answer to most people transportation needs. With the increasing number of a motorcycle rider in the Philippines safety is the utmost concern. Today technology plays a huge role on how this safety can be assured. We now see advances in connected devices. Devices can sense its surrounding through sensor attach to it. With this in mind, this study focuses on the development of a wearable device named Smart Motorcycle Helmet or simply Smart Helmet, whose main objective is to help motorcycle rider in times of emergency. Utilizing sensors such as alcohol level detector, crash/impact sensor, Internet connection thru 3G, accelerometer, Short Message Service (SMS) and cloud computing infrastructure connected to a Raspberry Pi Zero-W and integrating a separate Arduino board for the anti-theft tracking module is used to develop the propose Internet-of Things (IoT) device.
Using quantitative method and descriptive type research, the researchers validated the results from the inputs of the participant who tested the smart helmet during the alpha and beta testing process. Taking into account the ethical consideration of the volunteers, who will test the Smart Helmet. To ensure the reliability of the beta and alpha testing, ISO 25010 quality model was used for the assessment focusing on the device accuracy, efficiency and functionality. Based on the inputs and results gathered, the proposed Smart Helmet IoT device can be used as a tool in helping a motorcycle rider when an accident happens to inform the first-responder of the accident location and informing the family of the motorcycle rider.

Virtualization has become a widely and attractive employed technology in cloud computing environments. Sharing of a single physical machine between multiple isolated virtual machines leading to a more optimized hardware usage, as well as make the migration and management of a virtual system more efficiently than its physical counterpart. Virtualization is a fundamental technology in a cloud environment. However, the presence of an additional abstraction layer among software and hardware causes new security issues. Security issues related to virtualization technology have become a significant concern for organizations due to arising some new security challenges.
This paper aims to identify the main challenges and risks of virtualization in cloud computing environments. Furthermore, it focuses on some common virtual-related threats and attacks affect the security of cloud computing.
The survey was conducted to obtain the views of the cloud stakeholders on virtualization vulnerabilities, threats, and approaches that can be used to overcome them.
