There's a tendency to make huge leaps from scientific research to claims in brain-based learning. This article debunks some myths.

Donna Farren's curator insight, February 25, 9:15 AM

I especially like the attention paid to the fact that learning styles cannot be substantiated by research.  A lot of time and effort is wasted in narrowing down students' learning styles when it is best to use a variety anyway.

e_learnglobal's comment, January 9, 2013 2:46 PM
Here is an update:After an hour trying to work Blubbr out, here's my feedback:

1. There is no help which makes it hard to work it out. It is beta, so i guess it will come

2. All the marketing and reviews make it appear you can play the whole video, when in fact you can only select a series of 30 second clips from the video. Therefore, don't see this as a particularly helpful review tool for training and development, more for people who enjoy trivia and quizzes.

Shame, because it looked promising!

The Difference Between A Good Video Game and a Bad One

The Difference Between A Good Video Game and a Bad One | Devacon | Scoop.it

My theory about good video games is simple. Whether a video game is about shooting guns, flying planes, jumping over mushrooms, solving puzzles or rotating falling blocks, the game is a series of choices for the player. A good video game presents a series of interesting choices for the player to make.

Cuthbert's input: "For any game that someone thinks is really good there are a few common factors. For me those are: Aesthetics (not just artistic beauty), Polish, Engagement, Originality and final but not least, 'Merihari'.

9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic

9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic | Devacon | Scoop.it

While neuroscience hasn’t yet radically changed the way we think about teaching and learning, it is helping to shape educational policies and influencing new ways of implementing technology, improving special education, and streamlining day-to-day interactions between teachers and students. While there is still a long way to go before we truly understand the science of learning and how to use those findings in the real world classroom, it’s important to highlight some of the key ways that neuroscience is changing the classroom of today for the better.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Devacon | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.
