Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects. From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.

Free Technology for Teachers: Grading Made Easy with Diigo & Jing

Free Technology for Teachers: Grading Made Easy with Diigo & Jing | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Both Diigo and Jing have been written about on numerous occasions here at the Free Technology for Teachers blog, but I wanted to share my experiences using both tools when grading assignments. I teach an information literacy course for the college where I work as a librarian. This course requires students to create an annotated bibliography as their final project; but there’s one issue that I continually run into time and time again - students would submit their sources throughout the quarter, but when it came time to put the bibliography together, they never could find their sources again which left them scrambling to search for additional content. This past quarter, I tried something completely different, and it worked beautifully!

What should a networked educational leader tweet about? | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This week, I begin a cohort based in Alberta, Canada, working with educational leaders that are both school and division based. A question that I have received from many educators/administrators is what could I possibly share on Twitter. Although this is not the “definitive” guideline below, I would love to share my thoughts on what you should tweet:

Here are 10 guidelines:

3 Simple Ways Teachers Can Embrace Technology | Edudemic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Using technology in the classroom is important for adapting to modern times. While educational professionals have mixed opinions about the value of technology in the classroom, the truth is that technology has become a major part of American society.

Technology should be used in the classroom, because American society will never be without computers again. Computers have integrated into the daily lives of Americans, and it is important for younger generations to know how to use computers to improve their learning habits and ultimately prepare them for success in their careers.

Teaching is not the same today as it was even 10 years ago, much less four decades ago, which is when many of today's retiring teachers first entered the classroom as an instructor.

In the midst of changing educational practices, cultural norms, and ever increasing knowledge in subject areas, teachers need to stay on top of their methods and knowledge. There are plenty of methods to turn to for keeping teaching fresh.

There is nothing much rewarding for students than to see their accomplished work being published and celebrated with others.

Germanic Branch of the Indo-European Language Family

A comprehensive language website containing a detailed description of the different languages, and language families throughout the world, as well as language related topics.

 

Germanic languages are spoken by close to 470 million people in many parts of the world, but mainly in Europe and the Western Hemisphere. All modern Germanic languages derive from a common ancestor traditionally referred to as *Proto-Germanic, believed to have broken off from other *Proto-Indo-European languages some time before 500 B.C. Although no written documents in Proto-Germanic have survived, the language has been substantially reconstructed by using the oldest existing records. Compared to *Proto-Indo-European, **Proto-Germanic had a relatively simpler nominal morphology. For instance, it dropped the dual number, and reduced the number of cases from eight to four. On the other hand, the verbal morphology of *Proto-Indo-Eruopean survived relatively intact in all modern Germanic languages, although there are fewer strong (irregular) verbs today.
