How to Minimize Digital Classroom Distractions

How to Minimize Digital Classroom Distractions | FLE French | Scoop.it

As pointed out by Tom Daccord on Edudemic, when “the activity is engaging and challenging, there is an authentic audience, and prescribed time limits, students won’t mess around.” Design your lessons by ensuring that the length and intensity of your discussion are appropriate to the range of your students’ attention spans.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, July 3, 7:43 AM

I'm really loving this article by Larry Kunz! I'm one of those regular viewers of House Hunters myself, and as a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) homeowner who has learned to see past needing granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, I understand his analogy very well. (In fact, I just did a kitchen renovation almost a year ago, and we went with quartz/silestone instead of granite, and I've been upgrading appliances one by one to stainless over the course of seven years, so they are all now stainless.)  There are needs, and there are wants, and Larry does a really nice job getting tech writers to think about how to differenciate between those things in our content. This is content strategy at its most basic level. Read this NOW!

Sherin Nicolson's curator insight, March 31, 10:00 PM

This is a unique tool for marketers to establish what their consumers interests are. Facebook has been very successful in attracting businesses which are looking to create awareness for their brands. Marketers are able to find insights into the target audiences, what their interests are and create a basis for their market research. This upgrade complicates the idea of Twitter, however marketers and businesses may find it a useful tool.

Sustaining Seven Billion People

Sustaining Seven Billion People | FLE French | Scoop.it

"With seven billion people now living on Earth, the ever growing demand is putting unprecedented pressure on global resources—especially forests, water, and food. How can Earth’s resources be managed best to support so many people? One key is tracking the sum of what is available, and perhaps nothing is better suited to that task than satellites."

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, July 6, 9:09 AM

Such studies of the agriculture around the world are essential. The way we are doing agriculture to support seven billion people now, peaking at 9-10 billion in another 60 years, it is clear that we are putting severe strains on the environment.  But we have grown lazy, and we are doing it all wrong.

 

We CAN drastically reduce the amount of meat we consume, and thus quickly reduce the amount of arable land we need.  We CAN grow plants in ways that actually sequester more carbon and improve the soil it over time rather than erode and degrade.  And we CAN in fact grow all the food we need in the space we live in, thus enabling us to recycle all the water used as well, which is mostly just lost in evaporation.

"If you cut a cow in half, do you get two cows?" That is the simple question Linda Booth Sweeney likes to ask young people in her efforts to try and teach them the concept of living systems. It is a notion that she says even four-year-olds will shout out, "No way!" as they recognize that the cow has parts that belong together to make a whole. Join Lisa Bennett, communications director for the Center for Ecoliteracy, as she speaks with Sweeney about trying to educate people of all ages to experience and understand how nature sustains life and how to live accordingly.
