IFTTT + Evernote = Automated Research - edSocialMedia

IFTTT + Evernote = Automated Research - edSocialMedia | General | Scoop.it

"IFTTT can be combined with Evernote to make a powerful collaborative research tool, because it allows you to combine the collaboration and cloud-access of Evernote with the easy access to information offered by RSS feeds.  Here’s an example:

 

My public forum debate team is researching the Middle East for debates in November.  The Council on Foreign Relations runs a blog called “Middle East Matters,” which you can subscribe to via RSS.  So first I created an Evernote folder call “Middle East Matters,” then shared it with all the members of the team.  Then I created a recipe so that every time a new item is pushed out by the “Middle East Matters” RSS feed, IFTTT creates a new note in Evernote out of that item.  Voilà!  I have now effortlessly shared the latest updates from the Middle East with my PF team."

IFTTT ---> Evernote can be a powerful addition to the toolset for a group who research or track topics together (as is Diigo groups). With my students, we experiment with a lot of tools, then collaborative teams can decide on their own whether to use wikis or Google Docs, Twitter hashtags, Scoop.it, G+ Hangouts, on their project.

7 Ways Teaching Has Changed

7 Ways Teaching Has Changed | General | Scoop.it
This Is The World Teachers Must Adapt To: 7 Ways Teaching Has Changed by Terry Heick Teachers are the arbitrators of knowledge and culture. Knowledge…

 

7. A culture that can seem, well, distracted

 

And if we’re going to talk about the world teachers must adapt to, the idea of distraction has to be at least mentioned.

.

 

I’m not sure any of us fully understand the complexities of modern connectivity, information access, and the subjective idea of “distraction.” (After all, if five people are all at a table at Starbucks with their faces stuck to their phones, who’s to say their physical company rather than the respective apps that their own aren’t doing the distracting?)

.

That said, things are certainly different than the BS era of yesteryear (that is, before smartphones). At any moment someone can bust out a digital screen and start smearing their fingers across it. And no one knows what they’re doing and so we assume the worst and say the world is going down in flames.

.

And it very well could be. This is all new, so we don’t know. This is an era full of possibility, uncertainty, excitement, loss, and change.

.

This is the world teachers must adapt to.

This is the world teachers must adapt to.


Priscilla Der's curator insight, April 6, 2014 10:29 PM

This article relates back to Global Competency as teachers must stay current with societal changes and shifts. Relating to students and engaging students require teachers to stay current and in the know vs. sticking to traditional routes/techniques in which we were taught with. We must continuously adjust our teaching to fit the 21st century needs and keep re-adjusting to align these needs to the Common Core curriculum.

AR helps amputee experience first pain-free night in 48 years

AR helps amputee experience first pain-free night in 48 years | General | Scoop.it

An augmented reality game has helped an amputee suffering from phantom limb pain (PLP) enjoy a good night's sleep for the first time in 48 years.

The system, which works by translating muscular electrical signals picked up by electrodes at the site of the amputation into movements onscreen, was developed by a team at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg and nearby Sahlgrenska University Hospital. It is an offshoot of work done by Max Ortiz Catalan, who in 2012 developed and trialled a groundbreaking technique for implanting thought-controlled robotic arms and their electrodes directly to the bones and nerves of amputees. He says the idea for the AR phantom pain system came from listening to the struggles of amputee patients at his own clinic. When he decided to trial it, there was one individual whose case was known to be particularly difficult. 

The effects of the trial, have been transformative for that individual.
