Is Windows Taking Forever To Shut Down? Try This! | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Shutting down Windows seems like it should be a simple process. You’re just turning your PC off; how hard can it be? Yet there’s more to shutting down then just cutting the power. System processes must end, data must be saved, and unneeded information must be removed from memory. Usually, this process takes just a…

Issue 29.1, February 2014 — Cultural Anthropology

Issue 29.1, February 2014 — Cultural Anthropology | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

With the February 2014 issue, Cultural Anthropology goes fully open access. This means that the journal is now freely available to anyone anywhere who has access to the Internet (rather than just those who can afford the fees that allow them to get behind the paywall of a commercial press), thereby returning publishing to the commons, where academic life begins. We wish to thank all those who have expended so much time and labor in making the transition possible—former CA editors Kim and Mike Fortun, our talented and indefatigable former and present managing editors Ali Kenner and Tim Elfenbein, web consultant Ryan Schenk, former Society for Cultural Anthropology presidents Danilyn Rutherford and Brad Weiss, Oona Schmid at the American Anthropological Association, members of the OA advisory committee Jessica Cattelino, Chris Kelty, and Jason Jackson, and Paolo Mangiafico and Kevin Smith at the Duke University Libraries.

Half an Hour: Theories Related to Connectivism

Half an Hour: Theories Related to Connectivism | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
But i have some questions about my research. First i need ten-year findings of connectionim learning theory, second i got confused with telling the difference between connectionism, connectivist because some Chinese translators/scholars have had their own versions.The version raises argumentation. I also wonder if there are any differences between connection theory in other field such as grammar, linguistics, and even in computer science. Third i should be informed of the trends of connectionism in the world and even the application of the theory in Computer Assisted language learning or online learning.


The number of theories with similar names is confusing. Here is my own take on it. I have no doubt there are other theories outside the scope of this short discussion.

The world is one big dataset. Now, how to photograph it ...

We're all familiar with satellite imagery, but what we might not know is that much of it is out of date. That's because satellites are big and expensive, so there aren't that many of them up in space. As he explains in this fascinating talk, Dan Berkenstock and his team came up with a different solution, designing a cheap, lightweight satellite with a radically new approach to photographing what's going on on Earth.

Blended Learning in English Language Teaching: Course Design and Implementation

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.


Nik Peachey's insight:

Very proud to have written one of the case studies (pages 65 -75) for this book. It explores the award winning Blended Learning in ELT teacher training course I designed for Bell Educational Services.
