Allan Shaw's curator insight, April 26, 6:18 PM

'In the infographic, Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy, we have organized types of activities that suit various levels of assessments (2001) starting with remember, understand, and apply in the first row. The second row of our infographic includes higher levels of active learning including analyze, evaluate, and create. Engaging curriculum whether face-to-face, blended, or online push student performances to these levels of learning; however, these assessments are less conducive to automated feedback systems as rubrics typically require intelligent judgment. The appropriate level of learning for any assessment should be determined by the learning objective(s).' - This is worthy of your time and reflection.

Georgia Heffernan's curator insight, April 26, 7:43 PM

To enable our students to become assessment literate, teachers need to align their assessment feedback practices with the purpose of the learning. This info graphic provides an easy to use guide based on Bloom's taxonomy of developmental learning - a good reminder to be deliberate!

Savvy broadcast and media companies are putting more emphasis on social networks to keep the public informed.  Recent studies have shown that the "younger generation" will keep up with the news and public events if they are presented well on social media.  Even print outlets such as newspapers and magazines are publishing digital editions to appeal to younger audiences equipped with social media tools.  The communications future has arrived!  Aloha, Russ.

After reading this article in the New York Times yesterday I started thinking about one of my favorite coloring apps for children.  No matter how old or young you are coloring requires a combination of skills that can be applied in various situations.  Combining coloring with augmented reality is an easy way to introduce this exciting technology to students.  The colAR Mix app (available for iOS and Android devices) is a super fun choice with plenty of free options.

The lesson here for higher ed is about developing familiarity with new technologies.  The possibilities for AR across all disciplines are immense, but often students (and teachers) find it difficult to initially connect with a use that allows them to start to conceive of how it can be used.  Something as ubiquitous as colouring is used in many contexts (think of the Anatomy colouring book used by many health practitioners to learn about systems and connections).

Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, April 18, 8:15 PM

Just bought a colouring in book for Sophie that does this. The fact that I can make my own is cool.

Bang Kachao: Bangkok’s Green Lung

Bang Kachao: Bangkok’s Green Lung | eLearning | Scoop.it

"In the heart of Thailand’s most populous city, an oasis stands out from the urban landscape like a great “green lung.” That’s the nickname given to Bang Kachao—a lush protected area that has escaped the dense development seen elsewhere in Bangkok.  The city is built on the alluvial plain of the Chao Phraya River. Toward the southern end, near the Gulf of Thailand, is an old meander that never quite formed an oxbow lake. That meander traces the boundary of Bang Kachao, which TIME magazine once called the 'best urban oasis' in Asia.  According to a travel story in The New York Times, Bang Kachao is gaining popularity among tourists lured by bike tours, a floating farmers’ market, and the relaxed atmosphere."

This video in a good visual introduction to Bang Kacho in the Phra Pradaeng neighborhood of Bangkok from a nice travelers guide to the city.  

Danielle Lip's curator insight, April 14, 12:32 PM

These pictures of the heart of Thailand is very interesting and intriguing because the viewer can get a view of what the city Bang Kachao really looks from a arial view. The researcher call Bang Kachao the green lung because the area looks like a lung as well as the meander that formed an oxbow lake. Every country. city has different landmarks that make the location their own such as Michigan whose borders look like a mitten. Bang Kachao is becoming larger and growing more and more in population such as tourists, farmers and bike tourers. This location has a relaxed atmosphere and the Landsat image gives it justice, showing its actual size as a city based on its location near the Chao Phraya River towards the Gulf of Thailand which allows for access to the gulf and other different trading advantages.

"Most Likely To Succeed" Shows How Classrooms Modeled On Real Life Can Help Kids Succeed In Real Life - Fast Company

"Most Likely To Succeed" Shows How Classrooms Modeled On Real Life Can Help Kids Succeed In Real Life - Fast Company | eLearning | Scoop.it

"Education-bashing has become something of a national sport in the United States. From hurling criticism about slipping test scores, socio-economic disparity, dropout rates, to raising concerns about poor teaching standards and school resources, the popular narrative is that U.S. schools are failing children. There’s good reason for the pile-on: in many cases, the problems are real.

While most of the conversation around education reform centers on how to address these existing issues, another point of view has been gaining momentum over the last several years. It’s a point of view that is less focused on fine-tuning the current system for high performance—since the system was built in 1893 with the goal of churning out "good workers"—and more about rethinking education entirely and how it meets the world’s rapidly changing economy in the information age.

This topic is explored in depth in the feature-length documentary, Most Likely to Succeed, which premiered at Sundance and will appear at the Tribeca Film Festival April 24. In the film, director, writer and producer Greg Whiteley casts a light on the shortcomings of established education methods by focusing on one school that’s defying convention, San Diego’s High Tech High. While following two ninth-grade classes for a year, with classroom instruction unlike anything you’ve ever seen, the doc offers some inspirational ideas for how to help students rise to the occasion of an innovation economy that requires critical thinking."

Gracie Marcoux's curator insight, March 24, 2:29 AM

The article, in summary, goes over how there are so many users of social media around the world, especially young adults. Apparently, terrorists absolutely love twitter. What we need to realize is that social media can be taken as a terrorism breeding house, and everyone is subjugated to its danger.

This applies to terrorism in Unit 4. How? Instead of direct attacks like 9/11, people are now targeted worlds away. And that's far more terrifying.
