How I Upload My Photos to Facebook or The Photographer's Guide To Photo Formats For The Web | Fstoppers | Educational technology | Scoop.it
  If there is one thing I get asked, and that has been answered online time and again, it's "How do I get my photos to look like I want them to look on Facebook?" followed immediately by "Why does Facebook ruin my photos anyway?" and finally "I just want my photos to look awesome on Facebook." The bottom line is, Facebook does give us options, loopholes if you like, and we just need to adhere to them and our images will look stellar. But, what are these magical settings? I decided I was going to

Do you have a set of defined, school wide instructional practices? I bet you have defined practices for attendance, discipline, fire drills, cafeteria, bus drills, and registration. How can we call ourselves professionals when the very business of which we are about--teaching and learning--has no defined practices?

Why do so many Moodle courses suck?

Why do so many Moodle courses suck? | Educational technology | Scoop.it

Moodle is a magnificent free product and has the potential to enable schools and teachers to build wonderfully unique interactive online learning courses in which learner interaction can be tracked, measured and responded to. Despite this the vast majority of Moodle courses I see are a long list of Word and PDF documents with at best a few forums that enable a minimum of human social interaction.

Donna Farren's curator insight, August 1, 2014 8:16 AM

Nik makes some great points about Moodle - or really putting any content online - there has to be instructional design training, online teaching training or blended teaching training and how to select content for online delivery.  technical training alone is not enough.

irene's curator insight, August 4, 2014 11:51 PM

Interesting observation - echoes my own experience

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, August 7, 2014 5:40 PM

Problems and possibilities of Moodle (and other similar platforms) outlined by Nik Peachey:

 

* Why Moodle courses often suck?

Not so intuitive platform to work with, lack of teacher training and skills to create online learning material (I agree with these points), excess security issues.

 

* What to do to improve.

 

* Comment about ready-made courses.

There are various problems, for example these often contain little student-teacher or peer interaction. I agree that the ready-made digital material, in my experience, is not very personalisable (and therefore difficult to teach in an inspired way).

 

* How to develop your Moodle skills?

The post gives 9 links to practical video tutorials (how to create a quiz, add a youtube, etc.). There are also free Moodle platforms to practice.

Če smo ustvarjalnost včasih povezovali predvsem s pesniki, pisatelji in umetniki, pa danes radi poudarjamo, da smo lahko ustvarjalni vsi, ne glede na starost, izobrazbo in poklic, ki ga opravljamo.

21 Myths That Undermine Educational Effectiveness - InformED

21 Myths That Undermine Educational Effectiveness - InformED | Educational technology | Scoop.it

"In the past year, education researchers have done much to turn commonly held beliefs about learning on their head.

In her controversial new book, Seven Myths About Education...Daisy Christodoulou draws on her recent experience of teaching in challenging schools to show us just how much educational practice contradicts basic scientific principles..."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 9, 2014 7:41 PM

What myths do you know that undermine educational effectiveness? This post provides 21, and each is explained in the post. Fourteen of the myths provide links to additional information. Five of them are listed below. Click through to the post to find additional information on these five and the additional sixteen.

* Facts prevent understanding.

* You can always just look it up.

* Homework boosts achievement.

* Subject matter knowledge is a teacher's most powerful asset.

* The brain is static, unchanging and set before you start school.

You may not agree with all of these myths. Many could be used as a starter for discussions in a faculty meeting or with parents.

Some might call these 'hidden features' but I prefer to think of them as simply undiscovered. Perhaps you have a favorite 'undiscovered feature you found or use on your iPhone - if so, why not share?
