Fantastic 108 ideas, Gust Mees!

Russell Taylor's curator insight, May 16, 4:00 AM

I use Word Clouds regularly on my VLE (Moodle) courses.  They do need explaining sometimes, which makes me think they are less valuable than some other graphics, but there are lots of ideas here I am going to try.

M Bresson's curator insight, May 21, 10:18 AM

Des idées pour utiliser les nuages de  mots en classe dans toutes les disciplines. Créer une discussion, partager, comparer, proposer des hypothèses, travailler le vocabulaire, etc.

You Might Have Gotten An Email From Twitter About Your Account Being Compromised, It’s Real | TechCrunch | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it
Keep your eyes peeled Twitter users: Twitter is sending out emails to some of its users telling them it has reset their password and asking them to create a new one. If you can't log into your account that may be why.

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it

A study in 1985 “On the Brain of a Scientist: Albert Einstein” found that Einstein’s brain was actually not significantly different from others. As an Organization Development blogger put it:

 

                     ===> what made Einstein different was his mind. <===


His thinking and passion for learning were the basis of his genius. His brain was the same, but his intellect was markedly different. He was often humble about his intellect, and instead said that learning relied on working hard and imagining the impossible. So what made his learning so different? What can we learn from Einstein?

Hi Ana, Thank you. I must say I also prefer the original to the reworked version by WB Yeats at the head of this piece!

European Parliament endorses first ever Digital Freedom Strategy

European Parliament endorses first ever Digital Freedom Strategy | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it
Marietje SCHAAKE:
A large majority of the European Parliament today endorsed the first ever Digital Freedom Strategy in the EU’s foreign policy. I’m very happy with the wide support my report received....

“The Parliament unequivocally acknowledges that digital freedoms, like uncensored access to the internet, are fundamental rights which deserve equal protection as traditional human rights. I have set out a number of concrete points of action to be incorporated in the EU’s trade and development policies. New technologies bring huge opportunities, but people can only really enjoy them if we also tackle the threats emerging from the rise of ICTs, for example by authoritarian regimes.”

It’s Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged

It’s Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged | Technologies numériques & Education | Scoop.it

Assistant Professor of Education at Michigan State University, Christine Greenhow, conducted a study titled “Twitteracy: Tweeting is a New Literary Practice.” In it, she found that college students who tweet as part of their instruction are more engaged with the course content, the teacher, other students, and they have higher grades.

 

“Tweeting can be thought of as a new literary practice,” said Greenhow, who also studies the growing use of social media among high-schoolers. “It’s changing the way we experience what we read and what we write.” “The students get more engaged because they feel it is connected to something real, that it’s not just learning for the sake of learning,” Greenhow said. “It feels authentic to them.”

 

“One of the ways we judge whether something is a new literary form or a new form of communication is whether it makes new social acts possible that weren’t possible before,” Greenhow said. “Has Twitter changed social practices and the way we communicate? I would say it has.”

 

===> The study appears in the research journal Educational Forum. <===
