Children don't have to be told that 'cat' and 'cats' are variants of the same word—they pick it up just by listening. To a computer, though, they're as different as, well, cats and dogs.

The Profile of a Modern Teacher | Infographic

The Profile of a Modern Teacher | Infographic | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

One of the greatest misconceptions in education today is that certain teachers have a higher natural aptitude in technology than others.

This inspirational graphic sets out to disprove that notion and remind the audience that external skills are only a function of the internal dispositions that allowed them to grow.

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

Four apps for annotating screenshots are discussed here. I like Snagit, where it is possible to save annotated screenshots to one's Google drive.

Did I Plagiarize? The Types and Severity of Plagiarism Violations

Did I Plagiarize? The Types and Severity of Plagiarism Violations | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Plagiarism is a hot topic in the academic world, but it applies in all aspects of our lives. In a country and culture that values intellectual property, it is imperative that we are conscious of plagiarism guidelines and standards. The reality is, in many facets of life, when we make mistakes, we can claim ignorance. But when it comes to plagiarizing, there is little slack given; we are all expected to understand plagiarism guidelines and what constitutes a violation. While plagiarism is never considered acceptable, there are varying levels of severity with different types of plagiarism violations. So are you wondering…

« Citer ses sources conformément aux normes exigées » et «se conformer aux droits liés à la propriété intellectuelle » sont deux objectifs d’apprentissage du Profil TIC des étudiants au collégial liés respectivement aux habiletés consistant à « 3.0 Présenter l’information » et « 5.0 Exploiter les TIC de manière efficace et responsable » (source :  http://www.reptic.qc.ca/cadres-de-reference/cadre-de-reference-profil-tic-des-etudiants-du-collegial/).

 

Ce document peut donc s’avérer utile pour initier les étudiants, ainsi que les enseignants, aux différents types de plagiat.
