Sea levels are rising and recent research tells us the impact will happen more quickly than originally stated. This infographic shares information on how the sea level has risen over the last 140 years and how much it is predicted to rise by the end of the century. It also shares information on the two main reasons this is taking place. This infographic would be appropriate to share with students studying climate change/global warming.

Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Many students with weak decoding skills can read: with their ears. As teachers, we can make a strategic choice of differentiating in our lessons in order to allow a poor reader to ‘read with their ears’ in class until the time they can read with their eyes. As long as this occurs alongside additional intervention to address their decoding difficulties, we may be improving his or her life chances by providing this opportunity.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 3, 7:11 PM

Google has just released a new game called Smarty Pins: Putting Trivia on the Map. It uses Google maps and allows you to pick a category and then pin the map with the correct answer (as in location). The closer you get to the correct location, the more "miles" you have. You can gain miles by answering quickly, but the clock ticks down.
What are the topics?

Featured topics on this day included March Madness and World Cup Trivia. The other topics to choose from are:

* Arts and Culture

* Science and Geography

* Sports and Games

* Entertainment

* History and Current Events

For students who like trivia this would be a good game. It might also be used as a classroom activity with groups playing when you need a break.
