MapBox looks quite interesting.  I can see students using this site to help provide visual mapping of locations they are sharing, wanting to visit, or projections.  In all, it is similar to Google Maps but allow you to customize the data shared like what one might find in an infographic.

How to Use the Free YouTube Video Editor | EDUcational Chatter | Scoop.it
If you share video online, you should learn how to use the free YouTube editor. This free, online video editor is easy to use, and has more features than you might expect!

Dean Mantz's insight:

In setting out to explore new Scoop.it resources, I came across Timo IImoki's page http://www.scoop.it/t/education-technology-theory-practice/ ; Timo has shared a wealth of resources and it was an easy decision to follow.

 

This article is one that has a personal flare for me. In using my YouTube channel to share screencasts and student projects, there are times I need to make adjustments to uploads. In addition, I like to  share video editing tools with my students.  Thus, this tool feature is one deserving of being integrated into projects.

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, June 2, 6:57 AM

It's easy to lurk in an online course, to linger along the virtual walls of the virtual classroom. The astute online instructor pays attention to the social presence of each student. Just as there are those who can seem to take up all the space and all the air in a brick-and-mortar classroom, there are those who seem to be able to do the same in a virtual classroom and forum. Then those who feel less confident in their knowledge, and perhaps in their writing, will be less likely to participate.


When conducting a webinar, wait time is HARD. We get anxious about the silence. As a presenter/moderator, what you can't know is if someone is wrestling with the mute button. It happens to all of us, so we need to be sure to allow several extra seconds not only to allow folks to formulate their thoughts but to wrangle the technology.


I like the idea of lingering in that virtual presence. Sometimes we're so glad an online event is over that we sign off too quickly. We don't have the luxury, if you will, of packing up our things as we do in a physical space. That packing up allows people to visit. When we pause in our packing, it signals our willingness to spend more time, that we're in no hurry to leave. Finding a way to pack up virtually, to signal that willingness to talk is important, especially for those who have been reluctant to share in the larger group. Plus sa meme change, plus c'est la meme chose.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 2, 10:46 AM

Pedagogy is about leadership and relationships. These apply to all teaching and learning.

Here is a quote from Don's post explaining Solo Taxonomy - "...one model that might prove more useful is the Structure of Observed Learning Outcome (SOLO) taxonomy. It is a model that describes levels of increasing complexity in a learner's understanding of subjects (Biggs, Collis, 1982). It aids both trainers and learners in understanding the learning process. The model consists of five levels in the order of understanding..." - See more at: http://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/bloom.html#sthash.X2Mab2Ks.dpuf

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | EDUcational Chatter | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.
