I've seen worse melt downs online. The only really stupid thing was that they kept posting.

Laura, it was quite something. Let me know if you ever post on meltdowns as they are always useful lessons and always entertaining.
Laura Brown's comment, June 4, 2013 11:36 AM
I don't think I have ever gone looking for one. If you go looking for forums with Christians you can usually find melt downs when they talk about Issues.

Using technology in education is incredibly important today...but we must remember WHY we want our students using these tools and not accidentally make the tool itself the objective. 

Pamela Hall's curator insight, August 22, 2013 10:20 AM

This theme carries over to the business world too. Business owners need to realize that understanding the technology available and how to use it's tools can have a major impact on their businesses. "What do you want your business to do with technology?"

I have tried geocaching and it really does make you use geospatial tools. You have to know exactly where you are in reference to a map, you have to know directions in which you must travel, and you know you have to reach a certain place. While a fun activity, it is also a great geographic learning tool. 

Miles Gibson's curator insight, November 22, 2014 3:53 PM

unit 1 nature and perspectives of Geography 

This video relates to unit 1 because of its description of Geocaching, a vocab word of this unit, which is a high tech treasure hunting game where people use gps to find and identify little boxes that were hidden in the surroundings.

This relates to unit 1 because it is a defining example of globalization and helping a group of people come together in their environment. This is also an example of contagious diffusion because of the beginning spread of this invention, which spread rapidly and in an outward direction.

Radiation therapy for breast cancer (BC) with central nervous system (CNS) metastases

Radiation therapy for breast cancer (BC) with central nervous system (CNS) metastases | Alie's Page | Scoop.it
Abstract: 

 

Background: Many of the well-studied prognostic factors for patients with breast cancer (BC) brain metastases (BM) are based on data from an era when stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) was not commonly used. In this study, we examined patient characteristics and outcomes for patients with CNS metastases who recently underwent cranial radiation at MSKCC. Methods: 173 consecutive BC patients with CNS metastases receiving SRS or WBRT from January 2009 to December 2011 were identified. Clinico-pathologic and treatment information was obtained by retrospective review. Patient characteristics and associations were evaluated. Time from BM to death was evaluated by Kaplan-Meier and log-rank tests. Results: Of 173 patients (2 missing HER2 status), the subgroups were: HR+HER2-: 77 (45%), HR+HER2+: 28 (16%), HR-HER2+: 17(10%), and HR-HER2-(TNBC): 49 (29%). 121 had whole brain radiotherapy (4 with prior SRS), and 50 had SRS only. The use of SRS differed by subtype (overall Fisher’s exact p=0.02): 59% (HR-HER2+), 33% (TNBC), 29% (HR+HER2+), 21% (HR+HER2-). There were a total of 110 deaths. The median follow-up for survivors was 19mo (range: 6-67mo). The median time from BM to death for all patients was 17.5mo (95% confidence interval: 14-20mo): 41mo (HR-HER2+), 63mo (HR+HER2+), 14.5mo (HR+HER2-), 14mo (TNBC; log-rank test p=0.0001).

Susan Zager's curator insight, September 9, 2013 7:08 PM

Conclusions: Although HER2+ and TNBC subtypes are associated with a higher risk of BM, we noted a higher prevalence of HR+HER2- disease in BC patients with CNS metastasis, a group currently understudied. The prognostic information for time from BM to death differs according to subtype and may be important for future planning of clinical trials.

In part, it's not your fault. If you grew up and went to school in the United States, you were educated in a system that has eight times as many high-school football teams as high schools that teach advanced placement computer-science classes.  Read more...

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 6, 2013 11:01 AM

The last two conferences that I have attended have been greatly enriched by the backchannel (the conversation about the conference being held on Twitter).  The backchannel removes the top-down method of disseminating information and ideas as you tailor for stream to find information that interests you (I have no use for Taylor Swift gossip or oncology research at the moment, but if I did, I could find those conversations on Twitter quite easily).  Not surprisingly, my stream is focused on geography education, educational technologies and geospatial tools.  It isn't "one more thing" to complicate your life--it's a great tool to streamline the conversations that you always wish you could have with the people you might not otherwise be able to access.  And that makes it worth trying.

Things I Will Not Be Missing In My Paperless Classroom.

Things I Will Not Be Missing In My Paperless Classroom. | Alie's Page | Scoop.it

"As I head into the new school year, I'm not scrambling for my old lesson plan book or looking for notes in some long buried folder. All of my work is saved in Evernote and I will be sharing the work with my students on the second day of school. As I was sitting and thinking about all of the things I was going to need to start the year, I was struck by the number of things I will not need now that I'm as paperless as I can get. In no particular order, here are the things I will not miss in the upcoming school year."

I'll admit that I still can't seem to enjoy an e-book quite like I can a nice, hardcover book.  That doesn't mean that there aren't some serious upsides to going paperless in the classroom.
