Unemployed Black Woman Pretends to be White, Job Offers Suddenly Skyrocket

Unemployed Black Woman Pretends to be White, Job Offers Suddenly Skyrocket | Education | Scoop.it
If you don't believe that racism in the job market is real, then please read this article by Yolanda Spivey.  Spivey, who was seeking work in the insurance industry, found that she wasn't getting any job offers.
Pugalicious10's insight:

Pretty sad and unfortunate we are still talking about racism in 2013. Seems like it's never going to end.

To Get the Most Out of Tablets, Use Smart Curation | MindShift

To Get the Most Out of Tablets, Use Smart Curation | MindShift | Education | Scoop.it
How might efforts to curate benefit from the portability and ubiquity of mobile devices? Tools like Evernote and GoodReads allow for easy and valuable curation. But the harder questions are pedagogical and curricular.

iLearn Technology » Blog Archive » Evernote as an ePortfolio: Postach.io, Voice2Note, StudyBlue | Education | Scoop.it

"… this post is about Evernote and some neat new add-on apps I’ve been playing with.  At Anastasis, we use Evernote as our digital portfolio.  For the most part, this works brilliantly!  Students can record text, images, and audio directly into Evernote.  Notes can be shared and emailed to teachers and parents alike.  Evernote makes it easy to capture learning that isn’t natively digital in their eportfolio.  Snap a picture or create a short audio recording directly in Evernote and the learning is captured, searchable and sharable.  All of the incredible projects that our students create during inquiry can be reflected in Evernote portfolios.   Another HUGE benefit to the Evernote/iPad combo: it goes with them everywhere.  Recording learning on a field trip? Check. Recording learning at home? Check. Recording learning on the fly? Check. Teachers often send students a PDF instructions for an assignment or a picture to the student’s Evernote account. Parents can login to their child’s Evernote account from any computer or iDevice to see what they are working on.  Not only is learning captured on the device, but it is stored in the cloud.  This means that if a student iPad gets lost, damaged, etc. their work isn’t gone."

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply | Education | Scoop.it

Students enlisted to tutor others, these researchers have found, work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately and apply it more effectively. In a phenomenon that scientists have dubbed “the protégé effect,” student teachers score higher on tests than pupils who are learning only for their own sake.

Don't Miss These Two Fabulous Graphics on BYOD for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Don't Miss These Two Fabulous Graphics on BYOD for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education | Scoop.it

"Just a little reminder. BYOD in education refers to students bringing their own technology devices ( smartphones, tablets, and laptops. ) to school for educational uses. This was initially started by college students, but it soon spread to K-12 education. Schools that used to depend on government funds to provide technology that students would need for the school day , are now turning that responsibility to the parents by asking them to purchase the technology devices needed for schools, which, fortunately enough, most students actually own. This would cut down on schools' huge yearly technology expenditure.


Check out the graphics below to learn more on BYOD."
