2013 was a big year for Twitter. We saw a royal baby take over the Twittersphere, and scandals like the NSA revelations blow up overnight.
So what were the most popular trending topics on Twitter in the past year?

So you're at the top of your corporate game.  You rise before dawn, do a thousand crunches, yanked fifty pull-ups, and squated the equivalent weight of your BMW run five miles,  all before you sit in that beauty for your morning commute.  You're big, strong, looking tight and chiseled.  But what about your mental strength?  Have you ever excercised that muscle before getting to work?  Hmmm..

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, December 22, 2013 5:47 AM

While  I am fortunate enough to work in a school where the students and their families value education and encourage their children to strive for academic success there is still a need to motivate the boys to read. This post inspired me with some imaginative ways to do that. I especially like the idea of instagramming and the one about inviting families to join in.

one of our local bookstores does a wonderful thing where they wrap books in brown paper and just write a few words on the wrapping about the genres to tantalise readers. We could do something similar in our libraries to encourage a sense of anticipation and interest readers in books they haven't yet encountered. 

We can do more to encourage a love of reading.....

Phraseum - language learning online

Phraseum - language learning online | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

The Web offers huge opportunities to improve any foreign language you’re learning, from news stories, blog posts, comments and all that content. So, find sites with your favourite topics and read them regularly. Phraseum will help you save and organize all useful sentences you come across while reading, in order to learn them later.
You can organize your clips by tags (situation, meaning …) and personal categories (your projects, meetings …)
You can also search for and re-save phrases that others have saved
or discover phrases that match the topics of your interests in your Phrase feed.

Vocabulary builing tool with a web clipper that can be added to a browser for quick additions to a tagged phrasebook - looks like a very interesting use of browser technology that promotes learner autonomy

Amadeu Marin's curator insight, June 7, 2014 8:23 AM

Excellent idea! A fantastic tool to build up a collection of useful chunks or phrases around topics, situations, etc.

 

LEARNING TIP:

Phraseum provides what they call a 'clipping button' that you

drag onto your browser bookmark bar. Then, while you're reading online, you can highlight a piece of text (collocations, chunks, idioms, etc.) you want to clip, then hit the Phraseum clipping button to save and categorize the phrase into your account to learn or use later.

 

You can also share the phrases and phrasebooks you create and subscribe to other people's.

Juan Fernández's curator insight, August 1, 2014 3:29 PM
Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a really fantastic tool for the collaborative learning of phrases and collocations. Every language learner should be using this.

Trip Hawkins' new game helps children grow their emotional intelligence

Trip Hawkins' new game helps children grow their emotional intelligence | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Speaking to Venture Beat, Hawkins said the new game, titled IF, aims to supplement learning in schools by focusing on areas that aren't typically taught in the classroom: social and emotional development.

The game, which is yet to receive a launch date, is targeted at children aged six to 12-years old. Players take on the role of an animated character in a fantasy simulation and have to learn how to be sensitive to other characters while learning to understand their own emotions. IF uses chapters to teach empathy, offering lessons on what an emotion is, how to identify them, recognizing how others are feeling and how to interact with people in a compassionate way.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.
