Slidebean is a new presentation tool that lets you focus on the content, and does everything else automatically. We just launched our beta today.

Linda Denty's insight:

Might be very useful for those times when you just need to get the content done and have little time for the presentation side.

Newly launched, Slidebean seems to be trying to do what haiku deck does. Login is with Facebook, not my favorite way of doing things, but there are some nice effects here and it produces clean slide shows.

Search YouTube for “baby” and “iPad” and you’ll find clips featuring one-year-olds attempting to manipulate magazine pages and television screens as though they were touch-sensitive displays. These children are one step away from assuming that such technology is a natural, spontaneous part of the material world.

Learning in the Cloud | eLearning | Scoop.it

Since successfully completing school is such a widespread concern, the project took on the task of studying whether such self-organised learning can enable groups of children to successfully answer government Board examinations and obtain their school certificates using such 'minimally invasive' methods.

Very interesting that these kids can teach themselves english and open knowledge doors to better themselves.  Amazing what information can do to increase opportunities for everyone that can access the internet.

Cory Erlandson's curator insight, July 24, 6:44 AM

I used to teach students about the surprising water crises in central and SE Wisconsin, one of the most water-rich states in the US. They were always blown away. Now, teaching in CO, everyone seems to have an awareness (anxiety?) about local water scarcity. This story, though, has more of a national, even global scope. 

Jamie Strickland's curator insight, July 25, 7:46 AM

Thanks to my good friend, Seth Dixon for the original scoop.  There had been quite a bit of news reporting on the drought in central California this year, but this midwestern region has been experiencing water stress for years with little national attention.  I plan to use this article in both an upcoming presentation as well as an example when I teach "Tragedy of the Commons" in my Environmental Dilemma class.

Kate Buckland's curator insight, July 26, 7:32 PM

Good to compare to how we use water resources in Australia

Motivation: The Overlooked Sixth Component of Reading

Motivation: The Overlooked Sixth Component of Reading | eLearning | Scoop.it

Learners are motivated by three factors: desire to learn, incentives, or fear of failure. As we grow, most of the early curiosity is tested away, and school becomes work. Obstacles increase, desire to learn decreases, and incentives and/or fear of failure move to the forefront. Jack Canfield, self-esteem expert, reports that 80 percent of first graders posses high self-esteem, but by high school graduation, this drops to a staggering five percent.
