Nice infographic of how the brain works in the context of learning. New technology, new understanding of brain science and psychology can and must lend themselves to the creation of a critical pedagogy which leaves no child left behind.

BookChook's curator insight, October 9, 2013 11:44 PM

Great tips for kids and adults. 

Jazmin Reyes's curator insight, February 13, 2014 2:45 AM

Everyone is afraid of getting up on stage and giving a speech or what ever they need to do in front of an audience. These kind of tips are helpful in every way possible especially when someone is nervous. Knowing that we need to just breathe is an important thing. These skills can allow us to get better in our presentations.

Social Media, Social Life: How Teens View Their Digital Lives

Social Media, Social Life: How Teens View Their Digital Lives | education in english | Scoop.it

"Social Media, Social Life: How Teens View Their Digital Lives is the latest research report from Common Sense Media's Program for the Study of Children and Media. We surveyed over 1,000 13- to 17-year-olds nationally to understand how they perceive social media (like Facebook and Twitter) affects their relationships and feelings about themselves."

Steph Alexandra's curator insight, August 25, 2014 7:28 PM

"For the vast majority of teens, social and other digital communications media are a daily part of life."

 

Again, this statistic report shows the popularity of public profiling among teens from 13-17 years. 91% of teens have experience using social media, and 51% of teens use a social networking site daily. With such statistics we can consider the social pressures and influence that virtual communication and public profiling has on the younger generation. Though this article doesn't look at the positives and negatives of social media interaction for this particular age group, it is clear to see that having an active public profile on the web is common, if not expected of the younger generation, for the purpose of communication and web literacy. 

 

In understanding how a younger generation operates and interprets public profiling, is to gain a better understanding of web systems, their function and purpose, and of the direction of today's society. 

Amethyst Mayer's curator insight, December 27, 2014 3:50 AM

This article provides insight obtained by research, on how teenagers in America perceive and use the internet regarding social media.

Erica Laing's curator insight, December 29, 2014 1:21 AM

On incorporating technology in the classroom

Hannah Roukas's curator insight, October 22, 2013 7:55 AM

This post was short but to the point.  Technology should be one of the subjects kids learn in school, it should be used to help kids develop ideas.  Teachers should use technology to keep lessons interesting so kids don't fall asleep or become uninteresting.

Next figuring out how to add a Call To Action and subscription code.  BTW, Unbounce charges $700 a year to host landing pages :). 

 

Also works on DropBox. 

The Free Alternative
The interesting question is could you create a web marketing business with NO money for websites or blogs? Yes is the answer to that question. By using free tools such as Google Drive, Scoop.it and Blogger or WordPress you could create a business without paying anything to web development. 

You might find that business is limited in scale, but so what. Your cost is  limited to your sweat equity to create a revenue stream and THEN buy the website improvements you need to go to the next level. I just build a MagentoGo store (Story of Cancer Store: http://storyofcancer.gostorego.com/ ;) and the same thing is ALMOST true for Ecom.

 

Between Storify, Volusion and Magento you can create a store for sweat equity + $500 (give or take). My little store has already made $130 inside of its first month so well on its way to paying for its serving costs. 

The ultimate lesson of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing is DO NOTHING until it is worth the investment to do so :).

Are you looking for new tools that students may use to create slideshows that may also include audio? Richard Byrne has come up with five recommendations. The names are below and more information is available in his post.

* Narrable - currently this site does not have educator accounts, but the FAQ states "excited that teachers are using Narrable in the classroom and we're working closely with educators to develop features and accounts specifically for your needs."

* UTellStory - this site does offer a free account. If you want an educator account (which allows for 50 student accounts) there is a fee.

* Present.me - they also offer a free account, or education account (not free)

* Hello Slide- free accounts are available as well as paid

* Animoto - there is an account for educators that is free as well as paid accounts

* How game-based learning works

* The hidden learning that may take when playing games

* Results of a survey from teachers whom use game-based learning in their classroom

* The potential drawbacks

Nancy Jones's curator insight, June 19, 2013 10:03 AM

I strongly believe this is a valuable tool for certain types of learning.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:02 AM

Providing the pros and cons of game-based-learning, they portray gaming in a positive light. The value of gaming is stated throughout, pinpointing engagement factors and citing statistics to back up their claims. As an avid gamer myself, I don't need stats to prove anything. I know how addicting they can be. If kids can learn when they don't even realize they're learning, it is referred to as "hidden learning". That's the key. If games like Portal  can be played without kids thinkng they're educational games, then that's good news for parents and educators alike. The fact of the matter is Portal is a very challenging puzzle game that requires careful planning and attention to move up levels.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 15, 2013 10:13 PM

StoryToolz provides seven resources to help authors. 

* The Story Idea Generator "picks a random conflict from each of the Internet Public Library's list of 7 plots, 20 plots, and 36 plots."

* Random Conflicts combines "the Internet Public Library's list of 7 plots, 20 plots, and 36 plots" and "randomly presents 10."

* Word Count Meters allows you to keep track of and share your progress.

* Readability - This tool analyzes your text. It will tell you the reading level (based on a number of different indexes); sentence information, including the number of characters, words, paragraphs and more; word usage; and sentence beginnings (type of word). 

* Half Title Generator - Select from a list of beginnings and then for ends of a title and see what comes up!

* Example Word Count Meters - show actual word counts of existing projects as well as the goal

* Cliche Buster - Reviews your text and lets you know if it finds any cliches.

This tool would most likely work best with students in middle school, high school and college. Students might also use it as a tool to check their story before having a peer edit the story.

Corey Durward's curator insight, July 21, 2013 8:55 PM

StoryToolz is a nice ensemble of useful tools for writers. Writers who are struggling to come up with ideas for their prose will like the story starters - random idea generators for plots, conflicts and titles. StoryToolz also provides tools that will analyse your work, identify clichés in your writing, and evaluate its readability.
