GIMP: A Quick Walkthrough Of Everyone’s Favorite Open Source Image Editor ~ MakeUseOf

GIMP: A Quick Walkthrough Of Everyone’s Favorite Open Source Image Editor ~ MakeUseOf | 21st Century Adult Education | Scoop.it

by Danny Stieben

 

"Many people enjoy GIMP as one of their favorite open source tools, and with good reason: it’s among some of the most developed ones out there. We’ve covered all sorts of things about GIMP here at MakeUseOf, but we never really gave a rundown of what it can do. Is it just an over-hyped version of Paint, or can you do some serious image manipulation with it?"

Padagogy Wheel gets an Upgrade: Bloom’s Taxonomy, iPad apps and Learner Characteristics

Padagogy Wheel gets an Upgrade: Bloom’s Taxonomy, iPad apps and Learner Characteristics | 21st Century Adult Education | Scoop.it

Visual representaion as our friend, Dr. John Medina says; "Trumps all other senses."

Jim Lerman's curator insight, July 10, 2013 2:18 PM

Allan Carrington has done some outstanding work with his (currrently) 3 iterations of the Padagogy Wheet. It is definitely worth it to go to his blog and explore the development of the framwork from its origins. 

 

It is important, too, to acknowledge the work of Andrew Churches and Kathy Schrock, and quite a few others, in elaborating this conceptual scheme.

 

We should also pause and remember that Bllom's taxonomy has 3 domains, not just the single Cognitive domain. The  Affective and Psychomotor are equally as imporant. If we focus on content only, to the exclusion of social, emotional, nutritiional, and fitness expectations, we miseducate our students, shortchanging their development in significant ways.

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing | Lifehacker

I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing | Lifehacker | 21st Century Adult Education | Scoop.it

By Whitson Gordon

 

"For years, I kept hearing how awesome Evernote was: how it could store everything you possibly needed, make it available everywhere, and how scores of people couldn't live without it. I tried it multiple times, and never saw the appeal until now. Here's what I was missing.

 

"Any time we talk about Evernote, a good number of you say the same thing: you've tried it time and time again, but you could never really "get into it." I was in the same camp, but after reading the other side's experiences in this article and its comments, I decided to give it another shot. If you're like I was and haven't yet experienced the greatness of Evernote, here are some things you should try.

The More You Add, the More Useful Evernote Becomes

"Let's start with the most important trick: In order to see why everyone likes Evernote, it's important to take advantage of everything it has to offer (rather than use it as just another note taker). Reader ppdd says it best:

 

"The key to Evernote is to commit to it and jump in with both feet. It's pretty rotten if you're just using it for a few isolated tasks, because absolutely, it doesn't do any one thing perfectly and it's not as fast as other apps.

 

"It really starts to show its brilliance once you start using it as your default bookmark/webclip app, notetaker, recipe box, repository of all your reference material, and so on. It's great to have ALL the information you need indexed and searchable across every single platform you have. I love opening it up in a meeting and recording the meeting audio right along with my typed notes on my iPad. If I miss something (entirely possible while pecking things out on a glass screen) I can always return to it after the meeting."

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Adult Education | Scoop.it

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."
