Wondermind – Play games and explore the science of your brain

Wondermind – Play games and explore the science of your brain | E-Learning and Online Teaching | 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).

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The Internet has made researching subjects deceptively effortless for students — or so it may seem to them at first. Truth is, students who haven’t been taught the skills to conduct good research will invariably come up short.

Digital Writing and the Common Core | NWP Digital Is | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

“Writing today,” say the authors of Because Digital Writing Matters, “is pervasively and generally digital; composed with digital tools; created out of word, image, sound, and motion; circulated in digital environments; and consumed across a wide range of digital platforms.” Many teachers are wondering, however, whether digital writing can align with the English Language Arts strand of the Common Core State Standards, now adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. Many Digital Is resources demonstrate that it can.

Where is reflection in the learning process?

Where is reflection in the learning process? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

I asked the students to get in small groups to discuss these questions. They got in their groups and just looked at one another with baffled looks on their faces while remaining silent. I tried rewording the questions and providing examples and still got blank looks when they returned to their group discussions.

For a while now I have been expounding the wonders of augmented reality (See: Augmented Reality and Web 3.0) , so I thought it was time at last to give some examples of how we can actually get students using this technology and to show how it can superimpose the Internet onto their physical world. So here are some teaching suggestion which exploit two augmented reality type apps and gives students some reading, listening and speaking practice, as well as a bit of exercise.
