The Periodic Table of the Figures of Speech: 40 Ways to Improve Your Writing

The Periodic Table of the Figures of Speech: 40 Ways to Improve Your Writing | ED TECH | Scoop.it
At the root of all good writing lies an understanding of how sentences are built. In kindergarten, we learn the fundamentals of grammar and the basic concepts of how sentences are constructed. For most of our elementary and secondary training in writing, we are taught simply to improve those grammatical and mechanical skills. A good writer, however, understands the complexities and rhetorical effects of how modifying sentence structure (known as sentence "schemes") improves the flow, interest, a

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School - Edudemic

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School - Edudemic | ED TECH | Scoop.it

"Fueled by an incredible demand in the workforce for proficient programmers and the need to teach critical thinking skills, the coding movement in schools has exploded. Furthermore, we all communicate through technology, so we should at least know the basic premise of coding because the gadget sitting in our pocket, or on our desk, should not be a mysterious black box to us or our students. Just like writing, multimedia, art, and music are mediums to show ideas, coding can be another form of expression.``

App makes bulletin boards come alive at Green school - New Jersey Herald | ED TECH | Scoop.it

"The bulletin boards throughout Green Hills School may look normal — with colorful paper and pictures covering them — but hover a tablet or smartphone loaded with a special app over them and they turn into learning tools, complete with videos and interactive lessons.

 

“I didn't want there to be all these passive areas throughout the school,” Superintendent John Nittolo said. “I wanted there to be chances for people to interact, to manipulate, to find info that changes so it's not static.”

 

The brainchild of Louis Rossi, the school's mathematics and ThinkSTEM coach, each bulletin board — technically known as “Augmented Reality Interactive Boards” — gives students an opportunity to learn away from the classroom."

Use of QR codes and Aurasma can create an augmented reality where students simply need to hold their iPad up to an image or code to receive information. These are great for scavenger hunts and any activity students need to gather ideas, but here is an idea to use them with bulletin boards. This is hopefully something we can do in the Library soon!

Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.

 

And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.

 

And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers | ED TECH | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.

 

“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.
