If The World Were 100 People

If the population of the world was only 100 people, what would society look like? How many people would have shelter? Clean water? Education?

Top 6 Engineering Education Resources | STEM Village | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
At STEM Village, we love finding the best STEM education resources available and sharing them in our Science, Math, Technology, and Discovery units. This week, we celebrated National Engineers Week across North America, so we shared our favourite engineering resources all week on our Twitter and Facebook feeds! Engineering education intersects so many wonderful STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) topics – from physics, to robotics, to biology and chemistry, and even software design! Engineering also teaches students to think deeply, make connections, and become the future problem-solvers we need to develop in our future generations. Here’s a list of the Top 6 Engineering Education Resources we love at STEM Village:

"As a professional photographer I have been using my iPhone more and more, and my DSLR less in the pursuit of my personal photography.

 

However being used to lots of control over my photography with my DSLR, I have found it hard to completely move to using  just my iPhone for my family photos however, @Billfrakes, recommended three apps to improve my iPhoneography. Having had a month of using the apps, my iPhone photos have improved beyond recognition, and these are apps I will bringing into the classroom and my photography workshops.

 

These are now my apps of choice for using iPads in the classroom for photography:"

How Scoop.it, Google Plus & Twitter can turn chaos into order

How Scoop.it, Google Plus & Twitter can turn chaos into order | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

If you do anything professionally related to online technology, you understand the immense amount of data you need to sort through each day. There are the daily content roundups, blogs to read, Facebook posts and to check, tweets to scroll through and news sites. That doesn’t include whatever else arrives in your in-box. I literally cannot keep up with all that I want to know about social media technology and its use for engagement, fundraising and advocacy.

It’s really too much to know. That’s when I began trusting the curators.

 

Trusting the curators was a strategy I employed to begin to figure out what to read, what I needed to read, and what others whom I trusted thought was important to read. We cannot read it all. We cannot begin to imagine trying to read it all. We must trust to the curators.

Trusting others to curate content has become my primary means for gathering relevant information about social media and particularly nonprofit technology.

How To Overcome The iPad Learning Curve - Teachers With Apps

How To Overcome The iPad Learning Curve - Teachers With Apps | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

" Technology can make life a lot easier in the classroom. In the past criticism was often aimed at new technology coming into the classroom, recent advances in tech have made drastic changes to the learning environment.


This has actually been the case for numerous generations. When televisions were introduced to schools and kindergartens, many people were outraged at the invasion of technology into the educational process but of course, television became an integral part of the learning process. It is therefore fair to say that when used properly, tablets such as the iPad can be used effectively in the classroom."

"

There’s simply no magic pill – whether it’s the laptop, smartboard, iPad or the next device that comes along in a year or two. Technology alone won’t ever have the capacity to improve education unless it’s woven into a holistic vision that meets the very real and urgent educational objectives that prepare our students for life outside and after school. Well-planned technology deployments can however have a transformative impact on learning.

 

Here’s a list of ten requirements for a successful iPad implementation in schools."

If it takes unplugging to learn how better to live plugged in, so be it. But let’s not mistake such experiments in asceticism for a sustainable way of life. For most of us, the modern world is full of gadgets and electronics, and we’d do better to reflect on how we can live there than to pretend we can live elsewhere.

"Mobile learning is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. There are a variety of reasons for this, but many have to do with the accessibility of mobile devices, the savings associated with a mobile enabled learning program, and the convenience mobile learning affords the learner. In fact, today if there is a learning management system (or courses) that do not perform on mobile devices, it is borderline in-excusable. In five years time, it will be flat-out archaic."

"When teaching, one of the great practical ways to inspire discussion, debate and higher order thinking skills is by categorisation/card sort exercises, ideally where a student can decide to put things in a certain order, and change their mind by moving their idea about depending on the discussion. Back in the ‘good old days’ (pre-iPad), I would spend ages making a card sort exercise – writing it out in Word, printing it, maybe laminating it (or if I was feeling lazy not bothering), cutting out all the cards and placing them in envelopes with paper clips on so they didn’t get lost. I’d then repeat this for however many sets I needed for the class. I’d feel my life force drain away in front of my eyes as I repeated this tortuous process for each of my classes, with the realisation that I still had a ton of stuff to mark and plan, but knowing that it would generate a good lesson of discussion, argument and discovery"
