Robin Good's curator insight, November 25, 2013 1:00 PM



Sugarbox is a free web app which allows you to share any web app you are working on with anyone you wish to collaborate with.


To use it, you simply go to the web app, open it and then click on the Sugarbox bookmarklet, and you are ready to invite anyone to co-work with you, in real-time, on that app.


Once you are collaborating with someone you can see their cursor and their name in real time. You can text chat and annotate the screen.


A unique feature also allows you to easily record what's being shown on the screen, including your cursor movements, and can be easily shared with anyone. 


My comment: Excellent resource if you want to collaborate in real-time with someone else on the same app. 


Free to use.

So Long, Snow Days? School Groups Push Telecommuting For Students

So Long, Snow Days? School Groups Push Telecommuting For Students | Google Trips | Scoop.it

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, July 23, 9:17 AM

I think this idea could work just fine. We need to put our money into ensuring each student has computer and internet access before we waste money on any more standardized test. That is putting the cart before the horse. Education and learning materials and equipment need to be enhanced before testing unless there are funds to spend on both. The testing materials should be part of the instruction we purchase or design anyway and not separate with separate cost. Instruction should not be a guessing game.

 

There is nothing wrong with teaching the tests if the test covers the core people are required to know. No one will learn everything. Learning for growth, creativity and compulsion is discouraged if we waste tons of time and worry wondering what it is someone wants us to know. There is no time to follow your own passion while you second-guess what someone else decided to ask you.

 

Any training and development company in industry that is worth their salt and contract know that. As a matter of fact in the SAT or ADDIE process of training design and development you always do task analysis first, then design your standards and end objective goals to match the task analysis. After this your test instruments are designed to meet those requirements then your educational objectives are decided and materials developed to ensure each one you train reaches the goals and standards. The whole thing is always an iterative and non-ending process.

 

Setting learning and education in too much concrete with over weighted standardized test is counter-productive and pricey. The training materials need to be modernized and brought alive with new multimedia techniques and links to real reports, findings and research. Students should be encouraged to create and even code their own work and curate their research.

 

Snow days would offer great self-directed learning project time. This should be pre-decided by student contract and selection with specific training in class on how to conduct independent study.

It’s tough to plan for the future if you don’t have a deep understanding about the current state. 

donhornsby's curator insight, December 2, 2013 6:41 AM

(From the article): Humility is vital for the practice of listening deeply. Hubris—the opposite of humility—is a sneaky disease that gives people a false sense of knowing. To listen deeply, one has to operate from a position of curiosity rather than a place of knowing. Probing, asking for evidence and examples, and seeing the world through someone else’s eyes is the key to deep listening, which leads to deep understanding. And as we all know through studying and practicing the scientific method for problem solving, it’s tough to solve problems without deep understanding of the current state.

Teenagers say goodbye to Facebook, adding street cred to WeChat

Teenagers say goodbye to Facebook, adding street cred to WeChat | Google Trips | Scoop.it

We’ve heard about how Facebook is losing its street cred and its teenage audience as more and more baby boomers (their parents) join the platform. Where are all the teenagers going to, then? The answer is WeChat.

 

Chinese messaging app WeChat is the fastest growing social app used by youths worldwide, according to a study by Global Web Index. The latest study was conducted based on the feedback from teenagers aged 16 to 19 globally, excluding China. WeChat saw a 1,021 percent increase in usage among youths between Q1 and Q3 2013. The second-fastest growing is Vine at a rate of 639 percent, followed by Flickr (254 percent)....

Via Gust MEES

Lou Salza's curator insight, November 28, 2013 11:14 AM

This is particularly important for students with language learning differences--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"...“There’s something about writing that is a link to your brain,” said Marissa Moss, author of the popular children’s book series Amelia’s Notebook. In the books, Moss takes on the persona of a little girl expressing her ideas about the world and people around her. The books are a combination of words and drawings and look free form – as though Amelia sketched them herself.

Taking a cue from Moss, teachers from Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park, Calif., decided to have their students keep notebooks in a similar style. The notebooks aren’t graded; rather, they’re a place of private, free expression. Karen Clancy and Andrea Boatright presented the project at the Innovative Learning Conference hosted by the Nueva School recently.

“They’re not used to being given permission to write about whatever they want,” Clancy said. But once her students realized that they really weren’t being graded and that they had freedom of expression, they eventually came to demand time to write.

Moss says writing without fear of consequences is key to developing a writer’s voice. “If you’re perfect you are guaranteed to not write a thing,” Moss said. “It’s like driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the break.” She has developed some guides to help teachers coax students into using art and writing in their journals at the same time, as a way of flexing their visual thinking along with literacy...."

Reflection: An Essential Leadership Practice

Reflection: An Essential Leadership Practice | Google Trips | Scoop.it

Ponder the following equations:

Information + Action = Knowledge

Knowledge is the result of information and action. Yet, knowledge of actions taken is still not wisdom. It is in the reflective process that we are able to see if the knowledge used and actions taken have produced something of value and worth.

Thus:

Knowledge + Experience + Reflection = Wisdom

Excellent article....thank you for sharing!

 

Knowledge + Experience + Reflection = Wisdom

 

I believe that many of us know what we should be doing, and also have the experience that supports what we know.

 

What separates the best leaders I believe are those who take time to reflect on how the knowledge + experience is rightly applied.  Taking action after reflection is when wisdom is rightly applied.

 

What are your thoughts?

 

Make it a great day!
