Blogging is a really important tool to help with literacy skills. Give it a try.

Denis Lundie's curator insight, January 23, 2015 7:18 AM

Writing for the web, in all forms, is an essential communication skill. All languages should teach the techniques and rules that apply to writing for the web.

This is. . .interesting. I could see something like this being of interest to students for some projects. I'm not sure most writers would be able to or willing to adopt this process but a lot depends on the nature of the narrative and how authors would like to able to shape the story, or have their readers shape the story.

Center for 21st Century Universities

Center for 21st Century Universities | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
The Center for 21st Century Universities (C21U) is Georgia Tech's living laboratory for fundamental change in higher education. As higher education rapidly evolves, Georgia Tech is committed to leading the initiatives that will define the next generation of educational practices and technologies. Working in tandem with campus administrators and faculty, the center develops and tests new educational platforms and techniques.


Today, traditional colleges and universities face escalating operational challenges, including reduced funding, changing student demographics, questions regarding quality and value, and increased competition. Their success—or more bleakly, their survival—requires transformative change to enable new teaching and learning approaches. By testing educational techniques in actual classrooms, C21U develops proven technology-driven solutions that result in optimal student outcomes through creative institutional change. Combining technological solutions with practice and process modifications, C21U leverages beneficial industry and educational connections, offering important first steps toward defining the university of the 21st century.

Research: Teachers Say Tech Distractions More Concerning than Privacy, Security -- Campus Technology | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
"With this study we wanted to discover how educators around the world perceive the technology they and their students use on a daily basis," said Jared Stein, vice president of research and education at Instructure, in a prepared statement. "It is enlightening to find that the most pressing concern among educators was distraction, outranking issues like privacy and security. While privacy and security are critical issues, these findings suggest teachers are focused on how, not whether, technology should be used."

Free Technology for Teachers: Students Can Compare Maps Side-by-Side in GE Teach

Free Technology for Teachers: Students Can Compare Maps Side-by-Side in GE Teach | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
GE Teach is a great map tool that I last featured about 18 months ago. GE Teach is developed and maintained by a high school teacher in Texas named Josh Williams. We had the chance to meet at TCEA this week and chat about GE Teach.

GE Teach has gone through a bunch of iterations over the years. It is now built on the Google Maps API. On GE Teach students can compare two maps side-by-side. Students can select from gallery of map layers to compare side-by-side in GE Teach. In addition to comparing maps students can still use the drawing and measuring tools that you would typically find in Google's My Maps tool.

The Future of Education Isn’t Free. It’s Open | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it

Listening to the political debates about education in the United States, you might get the mistaken impression that nothing is changing other than costs going up and performance going down. Things are better than you may realize, especially in one area: instructional resources. We are on the threshold of sweeping change that will make it easier for teachers to teach and students to learn faster and more effectively.
