A Sneak Peek At The Classroom Of The Future

A Sneak Peek At The Classroom Of The Future | Education | Scoop.it

The tiny French-Canadian startup EXOPC wowed the crowds of the Consumer Electronics Show in 2012 with its prototype for the EXODesk, a table-sized multitouch tablet that cost just over $1,000. (You can check out photos and video the prototype here; the real thing is featured in the YouTube video below). In the year since, the company has changed its name to EXO U, added staff and signed a deal to ship 25 of its EXODesks to the Latin American country Panama, where its first futuristic classroom is being prepped for the start of the semester in March.

10 Assessments You Can Perform In 90 Seconds

10 Assessments You Can Perform In 90 Seconds | Education | Scoop.it

"Good assessment is frequent assessment.

 

Any assessment is designed to provide a snapshot of student understand—the more snapshots, the more complete the full picture of knowledge.

 

On its best day, an assessment will be 100% effective, telling you exactly what a student understands. More commonly, the return will be significantly lower as the wording of questions, the student’s sense of self-efficacy, or other factors diminish their assessment performance. It sounds obvious, but a student is a human being with an entire universe of personal problems, distraction, and related challenges in recalling the information in the form the assessment demands.

 

This makes a strong argument for frequent assessment, as it can be too easy to over-react and “remediate” students who may be banging against the limits of the assessment’s design rather than their own understanding. Rather than re-teaching, sometimes all that is necessary is re-measuring."

The most complex structure in the universe (that we know of) is the three pound mass of cells within your skull called the brain. The brain consists of about 100 billion neurons, which is about the same number as all the stars in our Milky Way galaxy and the number of galaxies in the known universe. Like any complex machine, the brain contains a lot of parts, each of which has subparts, which themselves have subparts, all the way down to the “nuts and bolts” — the neurons. In this Cheat Sheet, you find information on the key parts of the brain and the role and function of neurons, the cells that make up the nervous system.
