Presentation Skills Considered Harmful

Presentation Skills Considered Harmful | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it
There is no cure for presentation stage fright. You can reduce the symptoms
with beta blockers, but when the drugs wear off, you're still… you. You're
still up there with a cracking voice, runaway heart rate, and nauseating
dread.
Sanford Arbogast's insight:

Now i feel like presenting somewhere.

anyone know of an inexpensive conference?

Check out the Minecraft Store! | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it
All things Minecraft are here! Be sure to check it out! All proceeds from affiliate sales go to helping the Center for Children's Happiness.
Sanford Arbogast's insight:

Hi all, I'm having a Minecraft themed fund raiser for the Center for Children's Happiness (CCH), which is a Cambodian orphanage and school for children who lived in the city garbage dump (the city dump is a nightmarish, post-apocalyptic looking place).   The first goal is to raise enough to have an Xmas party for them, and the second goal is to raise enough to buy some Minecraft accounts for them. (I set up an educational bukkit server for them, but then the donation for the accounts fell through).   I set up an affiliate stop selling Minecraft things (featuring "Minecraft in the Classroom" and some other books focused on Minecraft in education) and all money made from it goes to helping CCH.      If you don't want to purchase anything, there is also the option of making a donation. If you know people who might be buying some Minecraft gifts (or any philanthropists looking to make a donation to a good cause), please pass this on to them. If you want to know more about CCH (or ever want to volunteer) feel free to contact me; I've been here in Cambodia helping them since 2007 and can answer any questions.  Thanks a lot for reading! (and thanks to Colin for letting me post this here)

Teaching Literary Analysis | Rusul Alrubail Blog | Edutopia.org

Teaching Literary Analysis | Rusul Alrubail Blog | Edutopia.org | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

Literary analysis is a vital stage in the development of students' critical thinking skills.

 

Bloom's Taxonomy illustrates that analysis should come at the fourth level, right after comprehension and application. What this means is that students must be able to understand and describe the text before they are able to analyze its elements.

Teaching literary analysis is often a daunting and overwhelming task. After all, it is essentially guiding students slowly through the process of critical thinking and understanding literature. That’s not a simple undertaking. Most importantly, with so many ways to go about doing it, where to begin?

To guide students toward discovering literature all on their own, the steps of this process need to be introduced in a simplified form. It's very important for the student to understand that literary analysis is indeed a process where there is no right or wrong answer. This empowers students to be passionate about their topics and, most importantly, encourages them to look beyond the words on the page.

With Sprout, HP bets on remaking the PC as a 3D maker tool | ZDNet

With Sprout, HP bets on remaking the PC as a 3D maker tool | ZDNet | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

DER IIt's called Sprout by HP and it's an all-in-one PC that looks similar to an iMac, but sports a small digital projector on the top of the monitor that projects down onto a mat (where the keyboard would normally be) and creates a second screen that is fully touch-enabled and also works with a digital pen. And the projector also serves as a 2D image scanner and a full 3D scanner for digitizing real world objects.

CNET first take on Sprout
That's the hardware. The software involves what HP refers to as an "apperating system" called Workspace. It sits on top of Windows 8 and the computer boots directly into this HP environment to access a suite of creative tools. HP has Microsoft's support on this, which is a first in terms of a third party being sanctioned to bypass Windows and boot into their own environment.
