This article is about probability tools. Since probability is such a big part of an actuary's career, we can use this article to see how probability is used and how it applies to actuaries.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Gifted Eduation | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.

Bloomin' iPad by Kathy Schrock

Bloomin' iPad by Kathy Schrock | Gifted Eduation | Scoop.it

Below you will find links to iPad applications that target the various levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.

I only included free apps that were "content-neutral" to make them usable across the curriculum. I also tried to include apps for the iPad only, but a few iPhone apps may have snuck in!

Each app image is clickable, and you will be taken to the iTunes Store to learn more about each one.

If you have other iPad apps you would like to recommend that meet the same criteria, please fill out the Google Survey at the bottom of this page. The results will be public so we can all benefit from each other's expertise. I also have another Web site with links to all things iPad if you are interested!

Gifted Children’s Strengths Often Present Challenges

Gifted Children’s Strengths Often Present Challenges | Gifted Eduation | Scoop.it

"Imagine, if you can, that you are five years old, but you can think like a fourth grader. Where do you find your friends? The other five-year-olds are too immature, and the 10-year-olds don’t take you seriously. If the older kids want you around at all, it’s as a sort of mascot, not as a peer. Physically, you can’t do the things the fourth graders can: you can’t hit a ball very well; you have trouble riding a two-wheeler; you can’t run
as fast. No matter how hard you try, you’ll always be behind the physical and
emotional curve set by older classmates. It’s like being a person who speaks
only German and travels to Italy and France. You like being there, but because
the language and cultures are different, it’s hard to be understood and to get
what you need.


Fitting in with neither their average-ability age peers nor their older intellectual peers, gifted children all too often are teased, put down, and ridiculed by both other children and adults. It’s no wonder, then, that they sometimes feel out of place, weird, inept, and even angry, particularly because they are generally more intense and sensitive than other children. Their emotions, already exquisitely sensitive, often are
exposed, raw, and tender, and their lack of emotional maturity can make their
lives—and yours—a challenge at best and a nightmare at worst.


Gifted children have many wonderful, enjoyable qualities, but when those qualities are combined with emotional and social immaturity, the flip side of those same attributes can look a lot less appealing." - Excerpt from Helping Gifted Children Soar, 2nd
Edition by Carol Strip Whitney, Ph.D. and Gretchen Hirsch

Susan Volinski's curator insight, November 14, 2013 7:13 PM

     This is an excerpt from Carol Strip Whitney and Gretchen Hirsch’s book called “Helping Gifted Children Soar,” discussing emotional roller coaster parents and children must endure. It discusses how gifted children do not fit in with other children because their mentality is not on the same level as their peers. For example, a gifted fourth grader might have the mentality of a 6th grader, but the 6th graders do not want to hang out with him because he is too young, and the gifted student doesn’t hang out with his fourth grade peers because they are too immature. So what friends does a gifted student have other than other gifted students? It’s so sad when a child has a hard time making friends. It’s interesting to note that gifted children have behavioral issues because and may become isolated as they get older because this is not usually an aspect people think about when they think of gifted. The qualities that a gifted child has, such as creative thinking, adult-level thinking, and advanced language abilities can easily backfire on the child. Students may think that their gifted peer is just being stuck up, rude, strange, and overly talkative, which can lead to isolation from peers. This has great effects on the child’s esteem as they get older. If they continue to be isolated by their peers, they may develop depression and other mental problems. This ties in with the other article about how there is a high rate of gifted student dropouts because those students were too smart for the system and they weren’t stimulated enough. On a similar note, gifted students might also drop out because they are not socially accepted by their peers, and at a young age, from what I remember, feeling accepted is really important. Students who are gifted and talented should not be criticized for their abilities and should be accepted by all.

Top 10 Tech Tools: An Interactive Graphic | Gifted Eduation | Scoop.it

"With so many free and user friendly tech tools available for teachers, it's hard to know where to begin to put together a list of the best tools for teaching and learning so I decided to take a look at my own resources to determine which tools I use the most. Rather than posting another running list of tools, features and uses, I decided to present the information visually, through an interactive ThingLink graphic. I used the new colored nubbins available to make it easier for visitors to explore areas of interest more efficiently. " - Susan Oxnevad

Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version

Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version | Gifted Eduation | Scoop.it

So much have been written about Bloom’s taxonomy; one click in a search engine will flood your page with hundreds of articles all of which revolve around this taxonomy. Only few are those who have tried to customize it to fit in the 21st century educational paradigm.

 

As a fan of Bloom’s pedagogy and being a classroom practitioner, I always look for new ways to improve my learning and teaching, and honestly speaking , if you are a teacher/ educator and still do not understand Bloom’s taxonomy then you are missing out on a great educational resource.


The following article is a summary and a fruit of my long painstaking research in the field of Bloom’s taxonomy. The purpose is to help teachers grow professionally and provide them with a solid informational background on how to better understand and apply Bloom’s taxonomy in classrooms in the light of the new technological advances and innovations..
