TED-Ed New Interactive Periodic Table With Video Lessons for Every Element ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

TED-Ed New Interactive Periodic Table With Video Lessons for Every Element ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Today, TED-Ed launched a clickable periodic table with videos on every element. This work is a fruit of a partnership between TED-Ed and Brady Haran, the creator of the popular YouTube channel Numberphile. The purpose behind this period table is to provide students with both a refresher and a study aid to help them better understand the different chemical elements and their properties.

8 Tips for an Awesome Prezi


Via Baiba Svenca
Jeff Dumoulin's insight:

Great Prezi on making great Prezis 

more...
Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, April 4, 9:25 PM

Prezi can be very effective but they are fundamentally based on creating perceptions of movement.  Estimates in WSJ that 25%-40% of population has motion sensitivity depending on the mode of transportation.  That may be simplistic but as a media psych prof, I have seen more than my share of over-exuberant Prezis whipping in and out and around such that I could barely make it through.  (Yes, I'm one of those 25%-40%ers)  So a word of caution to presenters.  If presentations are about your audience, keep in mind that restraint applies to more than the number of words per slide.  There are lots of ways to lose an audience.  None are good.  This is one of the worst.

Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, April 17, 11:32 AM

Some  great ideas for students interested in getting away from the conventional PowerPoint! 

Dave Wood's curator insight, April 18, 3:41 PM

Some really useful tips about structuring information and the impactful use of visuals.  I haven't been a huge fan of Prezi because they can be just too "busy" and disorientating when they incorporate too much spin as they move from image to image. These tips give good advice about how to keep it simple for best effect.

I've used Prezi as a way of presenting the notes from a visual group coaching session back to the participants.

OneNote now on Mac, free everywhere, and service powered | Office Blogs | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.

The 6-Step Guide To Becoming A Better Learner - Edudemic

The 6-Step Guide To Becoming A Better Learner - Edudemic | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"“Education is what people do to you and learning is what you do for yourself,” said Joi Ito in his TED2014 talk. “You’re not going to be on top of mountain all by yourself with a #2 pencil … What we need to learn is how to learn.”

 

Indeed, traditional education may not be for everyone, but learning is. Learning is about enriching our minds, honing our skills, and changing the way we see ourselves and the world. It improves our behavior and the way we think by expanding and challenging our understanding. All too often I met students who were waiting for learning to happen, waiting for the right teacher to teach in the right way. But waiting can easily be disguised as productive—it isn’t. There are practices you can engage in right now that puts you on the path of self-education."
