Are you looking for an easy way to create an embeddable form?
You can create a form from the survey builder and embed the form in any website or blog. You can create any type of question and then send out the URL or embed the form.
Why is this different than other forms? It's easy and you can read the results or send yourself reports in an easy format. I tried other forms and got so frustrated with trying to read the results in a spreadsheet. I needed an easier way so converted the survey builder to forms with one click.
You can even use the text editor to add images, embed videos, and more so each question or field is more visual.
Go ahead and try it and let me know what you think!
This is a site about learning theorists that was developed by a team of educators. We wanted to provide thoughtful summaries of each theorist. We know we are missing some theorists and are still building the site. We have had thousands of graduate students use our site and provide input. Now I thought I'd open it to my PLN. Please check it out and give us feedback.
"In this documentary Ruth McDonald meets Sir Ken Robinson on a return visit to Northern Ireland, where he's supporting Derry~Londonderry's plans as the first UK City of Culture in 2013.

Sir Ken Robinson sees 2013 as a golden opportunity for Derry to become a 'creative city'. Ruth discovers how his ideas are being received."
Need to step up your social media marketing results?
As someone who lives and breathes social media, I am seeing the power of this new way of marketing for business and education. This article provides some good tips on how to connect with your customers. Students and their families are your customers. Here's a few of the ways the author shares and how they can be used with educators:
1. Set up a Google+ hangout and meet on a personal level. Cool idea! How about using Google+ Hangouts for counseling, connecting to your families.
2. Set your goals and measure them. How do you want to use social media with your teachers and students? How about your families? Are they using social media?
3. Listen and respond. Maybe social media can be a great way to promote what is happening at your school.
"If the first stage of leading a culture of innovation is acknowledging that ‘organisations are not mechanisms and people are not components’, stage two is accepting that there’s no quick fix. “There are all kinds of things that will get in the way of creativity, but there is no guaranteed formula for making it happen,” says Robinson.
"He continues: “Very often people are looking for silver bullets: ‘How do we do it?’ There are rules and conventions you can learn from the past, but the great thing with creativity is there is always a chance you can come up with something completely different that no one has ever thought of before, and there is no set formula to get to that. It’s about recognising that this isn’t just about efficiency. It’s about a frame of mind. It’s a state of possibility that people have to engage with.”
TED Talks Games like World of Warcraft give players the means to save worlds, and incentive to learn the habits of heroes. What if we could harness this gamer power to solve real-world problems? Jane McGonigal says we can, and explains how.
The flipped classroom is an exciting new instructional approach. As it is relatively new, much of the information about it only is available in the popular press. Little research can be found. On this page, I am pulling together what I can find relevant to flipped classrooms. Enjoy!

Communities are based on trust and respect. Here are some ideas of building a learning community right from the beginning of school. This is a culture shift for many.
A few tips for the first days of school including:
- meet and greet each student at the door with a smile and a handshake. - invite everyone to contribute to the class rules — include some off the wall, funny rules. - use an icebreaker or have them tell a story so everyone has a voice the first few days.
How would you build a community of learners where there is trust and respect?
The 21st century is already here but teachers are still talking about learning technology skills. Barbara takes a stance to flip learning so students are more involved. There is a lot of talk about flipping the classroom where the teacher is doing all the work.
Let's focus back on the learner so they are doing the real work so they learn. They will need to unlearn to learn and relearn. This is a culture shift.
How about teachers being partners in learning with their learners It is already 12 years into this century and several generations have been 21st century learners and only know digital.
As I recall, I was thinking about networking as part of the DNA of connectivism, and the DNA comment elicited a comment from Stephen Downes about my confused attempt to reconcile connectivism and essentialism.
rethink how to conceptualise the relationship between projects and CoPs. In many organisations projects are the lifeblood. It’s how things get done. These projects consist of teams striving to kick goals and hit targets. Communities of practice, on the other hand, are designed for learning and improving the capabilities of their members.
I met John Boyer and saw him present a session on his instructional methods at SXSWedu 2012 in March of this year. While there is a bit more flexibility at the college level, I do think that some of his strategies could be equally effective at the secondary level in terms of engaging a diverse group of students and providing them with more options & choice in terms of accessing content and demonstrating learning. -- SDS
My focus is the key importance of spatial awareness in redesigning spaces for learning. I hope the second decade of this century will be marked by an awareness that redesigning spaces will be as important to change processes, as describing the new skills deemed necessary for learning and career creation in the last decade. I will focus on our journey of change as a case study for education redesign.
