Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, February 21, 2013 12:08 PM

Mark Prensky is a lively New Yorker and ex-teacher who set the pace on the use of games in learning with his evangelistic book Digital Game-Based Learning(2001). Prensky claims that today's educators/trainers and learners are from separate worlds. Sure, learners have a short attention span nowadays - for the old ways of learning! His point is that the old ways are inappropriate for the new generation of learners. His argument is that games make learning cool. School and most learning experiences are not cool.

Even More Resources for Teaching to Bloom's Taxonomy ~ EdSurge News | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
Sacramento educator Larry Ferlazzo gained “likes” back in 2009 for his super comprehensive collection of resources on supporting Bloom’s Taxonomy in the classroom. Now, he’s refreshed it with some additional apps, diagrams, and courses to add to the collection. First up, Ferlazzo calls out "A Crash Course in Teaching with Apps That Align to Bloom’s Taxonomy" hosted by edublogger Vicki Davis. Next, Ferlazzo recommends Blooms Taxonomy of Apps for iOS for you iOS fans, and the interactive Bloom’s Taxonomy Circle Diagram. See more recommendations here.

The Stunning Geography of Incarceration

The Stunning Geography of Incarceration | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
America has more than 5,000 prisons. This is what they look like on our landscape.

 

Begley’s images capture the massive scale of this entire industry and the land that we devote to it (America has less than 5 percent of the world’s population but houses a quarter of the world’s prisoners). His website, in fact, includes only about 14 percent of all of the prisons he’s captured (each one is scaled to the same size).

Bob Beaven's curator insight, January 29, 2:27 PM

This article is interesting from a geographic and social perspective, because the overhead pictures show just how much we alter the land with our prisons.  What is really interesting is how the US has less than five percent of the world's population but has one quarter of its prisoners.  Because of this, it can be inferred that the country has many prisons.  Yet, what astonished me about the prisons is that they seem to be out in the middle of nowhere.  The buildings seem expansive on the landscape and dominate it.  It just makes me wonder, how much does the United States spend on building and up-keeping these complexes.

The power of believing that you can improve

The power of believing that you can improve | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.

This seems like fun. The NodeJS package shp2stl by Doug McCune lets you convert a shapefile to a 3-D model, which can then send to your favorite 3-D printer (because you know we all have at least two of them lying around). Assuming you have NodeJS setup, simply point the package to your shapefile, specify which attribute to use for height, and presto changeo there's your 3-D model.
