11 Overlay Maps That Will Change The Way You See The World

11 Overlay Maps That Will Change The Way You See The World | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

"All maps face the challenge of making the globe appear to scale in two dimensions. Most, like the traditional Mercator projection, keep either size or shape consistent — not both — which skews our perception of continents and countries one way or the other. 

But when you compare square mileage, a whole new world appears. Inspired by this map of Africa's true size from German graphic designer Kai Krause, we created 11 map overlays to open your eyes to some real geography."

Technology and Graduation Rate: A Direct Correlation ~ Huffington Post

Technology and Graduation Rate: A Direct Correlation ~ Huffington Post | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

by Matthew Lynch


"...technology has made it possible for students who fall off the traditional path to jump back on and finish what they spent most of their childhood working towards. This may be in the form of taking remote classes from home, remedial classes in on-campus computer labs or even by enrolling in full-time online schools, public or private. The technology available for these options benefits students who face difficulties with a normal school schedule including teenage parents, students with short-term or long-term illnesses, teens with substance abuse struggles, or those who had poor academic performance due to learning disabilities or bullying."

What is interesting is that other sources indicate there is a growing digital divide. Could it be both are happening? We have some communities graduating students in greater numbers and others struggling. Is it possible what we look for is what we find in research sometimes?

Trip Hawkins releases second chapter of his 'If' iPad game for teaching kids emotional life skills

Trip Hawkins releases second chapter of his 'If' iPad game for teaching kids emotional life skills | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

by Dean Takahashi

 

"Hawkins — the charismatic founder of game publishers 3DO, Electronic Arts, and Digital Chocolate — has a new passion to teach children the social and emotional skills (SEL) that they don’t learn in school. He has a story-based app that gets lessons across that help kids deal with emotions and problems like bullies. But rather than launch it as a free-to-play game, Hawkins has gone a different route, releasing it instead as a subscription game....


"While the first chapter is free, subsequent chapters require a monthly subscription fee of $5 per month. Hawkins believes that parents will like this better than the somewhat risky free-to-play model, where children sometimes get into trouble by spending too much real money on virtual goods.

 

"Hawkins also said that each chapter will contain a few hours of gameplay as parents don’t want games to consume an inordinate amount of a child’s time. The dashboard app is a tool for parents to help monitor their children’s accomplishments and keep them motivated to do more.

 

"Hawkins said that the game is aimed at helping kids manage difficult emotions, persevere through challenges, make healthy decisions, and show empathy and compassion. As important as all of this is, most schools don’t teach it."

Over the past few years I have facilitated a number of iPad workshops with teachers from across the country.  One observation that I have made is that when anyone (not just teachers) are new to iPads (or any device), they have a difficult time deciphering the meaning of the icons that appear consistently throughout apps.

Ed Tech Promoters Need to Realize We’re Not All Autodidacts ~ Slate

Ed Tech Promoters Need to Realize We’re Not All Autodidacts ~ Slate | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

by Annie Murphy Paul

 

"This is a very particular take on learning: the autodidact’s take. We shouldn’t mistake it for most people’s reality. Productive learning without guidance and support from others is rare. A pair of eminent researchers has gone so far as to call the very notion of self-directed learning “an urban legend in education.”

 

"In a paper published in Educational Psychologist last year, Paul A. Kirschner of the Open University of the Netherlands and Jeroen J.G. van Merriënboer of Maastricht University challenge the popular assumption “that it is the learner who knows best and that she or he should be the controlling force in her or his learning.”

Very few people are true autodidacts. Even Bill Gates had mentors i.e. Warren Buffet. We should encourage self-directed learning, but realize it requires teaching and pedagogy.
