Apple Oakridge Center to close until 2024, new & larger flagship forthcoming

Vancouver’s Oakridge Center will begin major renovations, including a significant upgrade for the on-site Apple Store, Apple Oakridge Center.

The shopping mall plans to close its doors at the end of September until 2024, as the mall undergoes a complete overhaul. When the mall reopens, it will serve as a mixed-use “city center,” and be the most extensive development in the city’s history.

Apple Oakridge Center will also be closing its doors during this time. According to plans shown to Retail Insider, it will be redesigned as a 10,000 square foot space located alongside luxury brand stores in the mall’s “lux run.”

The store is still currently open and will remain so until September. Customers can visit the store to pick up online orders and customers are still able to schedule Genius Bar appointments.

6 Hands-On Center Ideas for Using Technology in Pre-K and Kindergarten

Adding technology to a preschool or kindergarten classroom is always a little bit tricky. You have to walk a fine line. On one hand, we know that when delivered in the right fashion, technology instruction can be beneficial for young children. On the other hand, we want to be certain that we aren’t just adding unnecessary screen time to the lives of kids who may already be spending far too much time on devices and watching TV. Here are six ways you can add technology to your early childhood classroom that encourage free play and problem solving.

1. Recycle Old Tech in Your Play Center

You know that flip phone that’s been in your drawer forever? Now’s the time to break it out! Put out a call to friends and parents for outdated (but safe—for example, with batteries removed) technology. In our classroom, we have a basket of old electronics

EPIC – Electronic Privacy Information Center

EPIC Urges FTC to Investigate Zoom, Issue Best Practices for Online Conferencing

In a letter to FTC Chairman Joe Simons, EPIC urged the FTC to “open an investigation of Zoom’s business practices and to issue, as soon as practicable, Best Practices for Online Conferencing Services.” The EPIC letter followed a 2019 complaint from EPIC warning that Zoom had “placed at risk the privacy and security of the users of its services.” EPIC also explained to the FTC that Zoom had “exposed users to the risk of remote surveillance, unwanted videocalls, and denial-of-service attack.” In the April 2020 letter to the Commission, EPIC reminded the Commission that it acted on similar complaints from EPIC concerning Facebook and Google but failed to act on the Zoom complaint. EPIC cited widespread reports of privacy and security flaws with the online conferencing service. EPIC wrote, “Now more than ever, the Federal Trade Commission has
