Creating Great Images With Quotes Is Like Creating Flags For Your Fans To Wave: 3 Free Tools To Create Your Own

Creating Great Images With Quotes Is Like Creating Flags For Your Fans To Wave: 3 Free Tools To Create Your Own | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

Mohammed Hassim's insight:
Robin Good's insight:

 

Sharing images with quotes, or using them for your Facebook or Google+ cover has become an effective method to provide fans with a visual symbol that represents one of their ideals, something that they deeply connect to and that they want to carry and wave to tohers as their own "flag".

 

The consequence of this is that appropriately selected images and texts, that truly represent the "spirit" of the community, receive much more "likes" and are instinctively shared by a much higher percentage of fans compared to other types of social status updates.

 

Here are three great free tools to create such visual "social flags" in a matter of minutes:

 

1) QuotesCover.com - it provides you with tons of ready-made quotes, provers and citations that you can further edit and personalize - it lets you customize fonts, positioning, background image, and throws in some nice touches as "soft-focusing" the background, adding drop-shadows to your text, or emphasizing specific words. Output ready also for status updates, e-cards and prints. Ad-supported. 9/10 -www.quotescover.com 

2) ReciteThis.com - it helps you find a relevant quote by providing you with a number of preset genres, it makes it easy to edit it and then it offers a set of 33 pre-designed "visual cards" from which you can pick the one you like best as a support for your selected quote. You can preview the look of any pre-designed card with your quote by simply hovering your mouse on any such card. Ad-free. 7/10 - www.recitethis.com

 

3) Quozio.com - it allows to grab any text from any web page or to type your own quote, before offering a set of 38 predesigned templates that integrate a background photo and a particular font for your text. You can test and preview all available designs and then select the one you like the most. Ad-free. 7/10 -www.quozio.com

November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

Meaningful education in times of uncertainty

Meaningful education in times of uncertainty | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

We convened a meeting of top thought leaders in the fields of learning, innovation, and technology. We asked them: how can we rapidly accelerate progress in education—not only to help marginalized communities catch up to where the privileged are today, but also to reach a more effective, holistic, and equitable education for every child in the world?

This collection of essays represents the outcome of those discussions. It addresses some of the most urgent and important issues of our time.

Here is the problem with what the Brookings Institute did. They convened a meeting about school without inviting a single K-12 teacher to the meeting.

Having noted this, the essays and their categories, treated as a theoretical premise from which to begin, might be helpful for classroom teachers and their practices. After all, it is in classrooms with real children who share real stories that the rubber hits the pavement.

The differences between eLearning and Distance Learning

The differences between eLearning and Distance Learning | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

There are lots of terms out there when it comes to new styles of learning. If you’re looking to create new courses or new methods to deliver training, it can feel over complicated. What’s the difference between eLearning and distance learning? Does it even matter? Which is better? We’ve teamed up with the tutors from Assignment help to understand the difference between the two once and for all. Here’s what you need to know, and how you can use them to your advantage.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, June 4, 5:02 AM
What Is eLearning? eLearning is any kind of learning that includes technology to help the learner. This can include videos, touch screen technology, online tools, or any other kind of media. What most people don’t realise about eLearning is that it can happen right in the classroom. The term just refers to the tools used. That being said, eLearning can be used when teacher and student are separated too. What is distance learning? Distance learning, as the term implies, is where the student and the teacher are separated. This is usually used in more formal settings, and one party is usually present. This is more often than not the teacher, who is delivering a class to the students who are present. This type of learning is particularly useful when one student cannot be there physically, due to illness or distance.
 
Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 4, 4:39 PM

"If the two concepts are so different, what does that mean for you? Well, it means that you have a lot of options when it comes to creating your own learning materials.

Gone are the days of creating worksheets and relying on PowerPoint presentations. You can now create materials to encourage learners to actually lean in and get involved with what’s happening."

Learning Theory Overview

Learning Theory Overview | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

In short, learning theories are abstract frameworks that describe how knowledge is received and processed during the learning experience. Learning theory informs the application of instructional design through models. Although there are multiple theories of learning, there are three principle foundations that influence most instructional design models today. These learning strategies include: behaviorist learning theory, cognitivist learning theory, and constructivist learning theory. See learning theory history, definitions, and practical examples:

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

IB teachers are moving beyond traditional approaches to homework to maximize student potential and increase engagement, as they share with IB World in the second article in the series

While evidence suggests homework has no impact on student performance when it comes to elementary-school-aged children, research shows that it leads to greater academic achievement for students aged 11 and up.

But the traditional ‘memorize and regurgitate facts’ approach to homework has had its day. Many educators are wising up to the idea that this can have the opposite and unintended effect of disengaging students. Workloads have also been brought into question – excessive homework is recognized as a contributor to student stress and a “thief” of valuable family time.

IB World Schools are making a stand, and scrapping traditional homework in favour of student-led learning and exploration.

The rise of Educational Technology as a Sociocultural and Ideological Phenomenon

The rise of Educational Technology as a Sociocultural and Ideological Phenomenon | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

Educational technology — known colloquially as edtech — represents efforts to design, develop, and use technology to achieve a never-ending array of desirable educational outcomes, including improving learning, increasing retention rates, enhancing teaching effectiveness, reducing costs, and increasing access. Throughout its history, edtech proponents have assumed positive impacts, promoting an optimistic rhetoric despite little empirical evidence of results — and ample documentation of failures.1 Regardless, edtech continues gaining momentum as a solution for the problems facing education. Why? Why is there so much interest in edtech when many of its practices run counter to the research, history, and theories of academic research on edtech?

Let’s learn about Learning

Let’s learn about Learning | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it
Self-awareness of how people learn as individuals and in teams becomes the springboard for change and innovative growth. To make learning meaningful, understandable, and motivating requires continued exploration in some basic learning principles: engagement, connection, interaction, attention, memory, intervention, and reflection.

Our ability to continuously learn and adapt determines the extent to which we thrive in today's organizations, in our personal lives, and in these disruptive times. By examining strategies for learning at the pace of change, based on learning analytics data of LyndaCampus users, as well as exploring the recent research, data, and practices in neuroscience and the cognitive sciences, we are able to see behaviors and actions that make learning easier and better.

The marriage of studies in the areas of learning, neuroscience, and cognitive science is moving what educators knew anecdotally to a data-driven understanding of how people learn—and how people can learn better. In an age of access to all knowledge, exploring learning principles or what I term learning strategies is the great gift educators can give students and colleagues.

Combining both interactive video and branching scenarios can be seen as a great way to engage learners with a specific piece of content.

However, the ability to add video into the mix allows for instructional designers and subject matter experts to get a little more creative when designing training content.

Online Learning 3.0 is happening and you’re probably behind 

Online Learning 3.0 is happening and you’re probably behind  | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

Creating mediocre or bad online learning programs doesn’t happen due to lack of effort. Lack of resources, budget, know-how, and ROI visibility are key reasons. Another reason is the ever-popular “negotiating to mediocrity” syndrome. But a few organizations are leading the charge into the next generation online learning 3.0 and it’s possible for any organization to be one of them.

 

Harvard Business School has created one of the most advanced learning environments in the world. Boeing, NASA, and MIT are breaking new ground in lifelong learning. Fitch is leading the charge into an adaptive-powered world of corporate learning. These and a number of other examples represent the evolution of leading organizations to the next generation of training, online learning 3.0. But don’t let the brand names fool you. You don’t have to be a massive organization to create a modern online learning experience. But before we discuss exactly how to do that, let’s take a look how we got here and what online learning 3.0 means.

​How can educators strike a balance between Blended and Social-Emotional learning? | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it
For many in attendance, social-emotional learning (SEL), or students ability to recognize and manage emotions and build healthy relationships, seemed to be that missing piece. Throughout the conference, panelists and attendants spoke of the importance of “whole child” education and the need for schools to prioritize developing SEL skills.

But while SEL skills were touted as critical to student success, the focus on academics—and quality digital resources—remained central. It raised the question: how exactly should schools balance blended and social-emotional learning in the 21st century classroom?

[PDF] Global competency for an inclusive world

[PDF] Global competency for an inclusive world | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it
Globalisation brings innovation, new experiences and higher living standards; but it equally contributes to economic inequality and social division. Automation and internet business models may have encouraged entrepreneurship, but they may also have weakened job security and benefits. For some, cross-border migration means the ability to commute between continents; for others, it means escaping from poverty and war – and the long struggle to adapt to a new country. Around the world, in the face of widening income gaps, there is a need to dissolve tensions and re-build social capital.
 
Facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities, this generation requires new capacities.Whether in traditional or more entrepreneurial work environments, young people need to collaborate with others from different disciplines and cultures, in a way that solves complex problems and creates economic and social value. They need to bring judgment and action to difficult situations in which people’s beliefs and perspectives are at odds. They need to identify cultural traits and biases and to recognise that their own understanding of the world is inevitably partial.
 
For some years, educators have been discussing how best to build these capacities. Is there a distinctive competence that equips young people for the culturally diverse and digitally-connected communities in which they work and socialise? And if there is, how should it be developed? Can students learn to mobilise knowledge, cognitive and creative skills, and values and attitudes, in order to act creatively, collaboratively and ethically?
