Labor Day Weekend ReadaThing

Labor Day Weekend ReadaThing | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

ReadaThing is a long-standing group that hosts one of my favorite LT traditions: relay-style read-a-thons. LibraryThing members across the globe volunteer for time slots, such that we've always got someone reading around the clock for the duration of the ReadaThing.

 

This Labor Day weekend, we'll have a ReadaThing launching at midnight UTC betweenThursday, Aug. 28th and Friday, Aug. 29th (that's 8pm Eastern on Thursday). The read-a-thon will end 96 hours later, at 7pm Eastern on Monday, Sept. 1st.

 

ReadaThing participants can read whatever they want, wherever they want, whenever they want.

The e-textbook transformation

The e-textbook transformation | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

A new wave of e-textbooks is giving students more than just words and a few hotlinks on a digital page. Publishers over the last few years have been adding video, interactive maps and gamified quizzes designed to engage students more deeply in their learning.

This site is timely as schools move from hard copy to etexts.

Martin Debattista's curator insight, July 24, 11:22 PM

A transformation which is not a revolution. It will take time and effort.  It's important we give it the space to take its natural course.

Angela C. Dowd's curator insight, July 25, 11:11 AM

Thank you Nik. I like reading about innovations like e-textbook transformation that make learning more accessible to all students.

A Twitter account appeared that perfectly predicted the outcome of the final World Cup game, down to who scored the winning goal for Germany. It was a con—and a classic one. (We’ll talk about how the con works in a moment.)

5 successful strategies to block the career of female scientists with gender policy | smartsciencecareer blog | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

After several decades of fighting for equal rights for women in academia there are new rules and guidelines on the European and national level to support the career of women in science. One strategy is to aim for an equal distribution of genders in all academic settings. Surprisingly, these important strategies for gender equality have some unwanted side-effects which impair specifically the careers of young female scientists.

Richard III Really Ate (and Drank) Like a King

Richard III Really Ate (and Drank) Like a King | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

Richard III ruled England for just two years and two months before he was killed in battle in 1485 at age 32. And yet, during his short time wearing the crown, Richard certainly ate like a king, a new study finds.

 

The wine flowed generously at King Richard's table, and plates of game birds and fresh fish were plentiful, according to an analysis of his teeth and bones, published online in the Journal of Archaeological Science on Aug. 16.

Sound travels as vibrations through the air and whatever it hits vibrates too. If this is your ear then specialized hair cells translate these movements into something you can hear but for pretty much anything else these vibrations are simply lost.

Teaching Is Not a Business

Teaching Is Not a Business | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

Today’s education reformers believe that schools are broken and that business can supply the remedy. Some place their faith in the idea of competition. Others embrace disruptive innovation, mainly through online learning. Both camps share the belief that the solution resides in the impersonal, whether it’s the invisible hand of the market or the transformative power of technology.

Bring Researcher in the Center | People would rather be electrically shocked than left alone with their thoughts | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

At some point today you will disengage from the rest of the world and just think. It could happen any number of ways: if your mind wanders from work, while you’re sitting in traffic, or if you just take a quiet moment to reflect. But as frequently as we drift into our own thoughts, a new study suggests that many of us don’t like it. In fact, some people even prefer an electric shock to being left alone with their minds.
