Wondermind – Play games and explore the science of your brain

Wondermind – Play games and explore the science of your brain | Differentiation | Scoop.it

Welcome to your Wondermind
Wondermind is about a few things. It’s about the brilliant, amazing and truly mind-boggling stuff that’s going on inside your brain as you grow. It’s about the art of Alice in Wonderland, the exhibition at Tate Liverpool. And it’s about putting together both of those things: mixing art with science. Being good at one doesn’t mean you can’t be good at the other (in fact, it’s often the opposite).

QR Coded Student Videos: Classifying Activity

QR Coded Student Videos:  Classifying Activity | Differentiation | Scoop.it
This is part of my continuing series of blogs about how I am integrating mobile learning into my undergraduate course on interpersonal relations. There are a dozen students in the class. Ten of them are in the 17 to 21 year old age range. The other two are over 35 years old. All of them own mobile devices – four of them being Smart Devices (iPhone, Android). Three of them bring their personal laptops to class.
The following activity was part of a three-hour class on nonverbal behaviors. Even though the example describes how this activity was used with the different types of nonverbal behaviors, it can be used with any topic that has categories or classifications.
