10 Infographic Tools for Data Visualization in the Classroom - Avatar Generation

10 Infographic Tools for Data  Visualization in the Classroom - Avatar Generation | Corpus Christi College ICT | Scoop.it
Information overload is a common complaint from young people, especially now that knowledge is easier to access and share over online networks. Being able to summarize, condense and visualize information meaningfully is an important skill for any student. Infographics have become a hugely popular tool for data visualization, and can now be created by both educators and students using online tools.

If you’re hoping to incorporate infographics into your lessons, or to encourage your students to learn to communicate information visually, we’ve come to the rescue! These ten web-based and iOS apps will help you integrate infographics into a host of different lessons.

The 8 Skills Students Must Have For The Future - Edudemic

The 8 Skills Students Must Have For The Future - Edudemic | Corpus Christi College ICT | Scoop.it

by Katie Lepi

 

"This year’s “The Learning Curve” report from Pearson takes a look at education across the globe. One of the main things the report does is rank the world’s educational systems (which we’ll talk about in a different post). What I find even more interesting is the focus on what skills current students need to meet the ever changing needs of the global market, and some potential ways to address shortcomings in our collective educational systems."

Peter Mellow's curator insight, August 20, 2014 10:40 PM

I would really like to see 'how' they used the devices in the classroom. I can see this as another case of blame the technology (device) rather than the learning design for the activities.

 

I would have thought that a device with a range of scientific instruments included in it (gyroscope, accelerometer, two cameras), would be more useful for collecting and reporting on data/events than a keyboard with a screen. Sounds like a typewriter vs an educational swiss army knife to me.

 

Do we want our children to be able to ask the right questions with inquiry based learning or be able to type 40 words a minute?

Open Content Program (The Getty)

Open Content Program (The Getty) | Corpus Christi College ICT | Scoop.it
The Open Content Program provides free, unrestricted access to the Getty's digital resources.

 

Why Open Content?

The Getty adopted the Open Content Program because we recognized the need to share images of works of art for free and without restriction, so that all those who create or appreciate art—scholars, artists, art lovers, and entrepreneurs—will have greater access to high-quality digital images for their studies and projects. Art inspires us, and imagination and creativity lead to artistic expressions that expand knowledge and understanding. The Getty sincerely hopes that people will use the open content images for a wide range of activities and that they will share the fruits of their labors with others.

 

What's in Open Content?

Currently, there are more than 87,000 images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute available through the Open Content Program, including more than 72,000 from the Research Institute's Foto Arte Minore archive, which features photographs of the art and architecture of Italy over 30 years by German photographer and scholar Max Hutzel (1913–1988). Other images include paintings, drawings, manuscripts, photographs, antiquities, sculpture, decorative arts, artists' sketchbooks, watercolors, rare prints from the 16th through the 18th century, and 19th-century architectural drawings of cultural landmarks. Over time, images from the Getty Conservation Institute will be added, as well as more images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute.

63 Things Every Student Should Know In A Digital World - TeachThought

63 Things Every Student Should Know In A Digital World - TeachThought | Corpus Christi College ICT | Scoop.it

"But in an increasingly connected and digital world, the things a student needs to know are indeed changing—fundamental human needs sometimes drastically redressed for an alien modern world. Just as salt allowed for the keeping of meats, the advent of antibiotics made deadly viruses and diseases simply inconvenient, and electricity completely altered when and where we slept and work and played, technology is again changing the kind of “stuff” a student needs to know."
