This is a great resource for science and social studies classes.  I experimented with the street view of the coral reef and it was amazing!  I think ESL/EFL teachers can get a lot of use of these pages for visuals and research of thematic units in other content areas.

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 

 

Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation.

Social Learning Tips to Engage Learners: A corporate learning perspective

Social Learning Tips to Engage Learners: A corporate learning perspective | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
E-Learning and technology-aided learning in the workplace allows more flexibility and increases access to learning by huge proportions. It is then not a surprise that technology-aided learning is now being adopted by a majority of forward thinking organizations. With an increasing amount of budgets directed towards creating e-learning and building the platforms of delivery, it is now imperative that e-learning initiatives align to the needs of the entire learner group – including learners who are less than enthusiastic.

A strictly linear structure, where an e-course is simply made available on the technology-aided learning platform maybe sufficient for the self-motivated learners, but not suitable for all. Many learners within the group may choose to learn in a different manner, have varied learning styles. It is now an established fact that a flexible training program with a variety of multiple learning pathways offers more learning opportunities and therefore better chances course drop-outs. With Social learning learners can be suitably engaged. Continuous support from peers as well as trainers or experts on the social platform makes sure that learners do not feel ‘isolated’ during the learning process. However, there are a few principles of social learning that must be followed when embarking on the learning endeavor to ensure its impact as well as success.

5 great Formative Assessment Strategies for teachers

5 great Formative Assessment Strategies for teachers | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Formative assessment strategies in the classroom provide both teachers and students with invaluable information about what students understand, and what they don’t. These ungraded assessments are valuable guides for students to help them enhance their performance, and they also help teachers determine if further instruction is necessary.

When formative assessments are used consistently, and effectively, neither teachers nor students are surprised by their final grades.

Some formative assessments can take just a few minutes, while others require longer periods of time. The following are 5 great formative assessment strategies for teachers.

When was the last time you put your hands on a tape recorder? How about a slide projector or an overhead projector? Unless you’re stuck in some type of time warp, it’s probably been a while. In this age of technology, which allows us to do just about everything on our smartphones or online — from online shopping to online learning — these tools may seem like they’re from eons ago. Yet, it’s our youngest generation who is, more than likely, all too familiar with them. Teachers, because of lack of funds, are reporting that they’re still using these outdated instruments in the classroom. Yet, they’re still tapping into modern tools like Facebook, YouTube and podcasts to connect with their students. Take a look at how educational tools have evolved over the years.

How do You Choose Good Online Sources? | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Students often ask how to determine which websites and articles are good sources to cite. My answer is always, “Well, what do you think?” Students need to be able to think on their own. So, if your student offers some questionable sources, ask, “Why did you choose that one?” Try to get the student to think about the who, what, why, and when of the article and website. Let the student use critical thinking to come to a valid conclusion. They might just have a good reason for using the source."

* Who wrote it?

* What is it for?

* Why was it written?

* When was it written?

With the additional questions students should be able to determine if the site is relevant to their research, and use critical thinking skills as they come to their decision.

This is an area where many students struggle, and this visual may help them become more comfortable in learning how to evaluate information.

""Technology is in no way a synonym for ‘outstanding.’ But, it is something that can facilitate that outcome again and again. It can seem melodramatic to say things like ‘iPads have changed the world,’ but they have. The very fact that there is a debate within educational establishments across the world as to whether they and their likenesses are the key to unlocking the future of learning should show all the sceptics that technology is not going away. It is something that needs to be embraced and explored. So what does an outstanding iPad lesson look like?"
