Incredible images of Mother Earth. It is all of our responsibility to look past our short term existence here to ensure that she flourishes for millenia for our future generations.

The views of Earth from Space are fascinating.  Mountains, deserts, volcanoes, islands all seen from above.  My favorite is the city of Aleppo. What is yours?

Math Slicer - A Fun Alternative to Flashcards - iPad Apps for School

Math Slicer - A Fun Alternative to Flashcards - iPad Apps for School | Health | Scoop.it

"Math Slicer is an iPad app that presents a fun alternative to using flashcards to practice basic mathematics skills. In Math Slicer students are shown addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems that they have to answer by “slicing” the correct answer in half. The answer choices jump up on the screen and students have to slice them before they disappear."

I think this would be a great alternative to flash cards. Many of my students have told me that they love the game "fruit ninja" which is a game that has a similar style.  This game could make math more relatable to the students.

What does it mean to be a digital native?

What does it mean to be a digital native? | Health | Scoop.it
The war between natives and immigrants is ending. The natives have won.

Via Nik Peachey
Fabio Lam's insight:

The natives are taking over this generation and will only continue to grow as technology progresses. But let's make sure to have a healthy balance for both tech and in person social interaction. 

more...
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 11, 2013 12:00 PM

The term digital native is an oversimplication and is not overly accurate. Research in Australia and England are showing power users in undergrad programs make up about 14% of the students. What about the rest? One thing about Prensky's work is he does acknowledge that technology has to fit with school and learning in an integrated manner.

 

As I read the article, I realized this concerns about the pace of technology have been with us for some time, perhaps since time began. Hannah Arendt argued the pace of technology had outpaced our ability to speak about it coherently in the 1950's.

Guide to Earth Explorer for Landsat 8

Guide to Earth Explorer for Landsat 8 | Health | Scoop.it

The Landsat Data Continuity Mission is now Landsat 8, and that means images are now public (woohoo!). NASA handed control of the satellite to the USGS earlier this year (May 30, 2013), and calibrated imagery is available through the Earth Explorer. Unfortunately, the Earth Explorer interface is a bit of a pain, so I’ve put together a guide to make it easier.

Chris Cividino's curator insight, November 8, 2013 12:09 AM

The Landsat program is an essential tool for geographers when they are studying GIS. Without this data, Google Earth and many of the other mapping programs we love so much would not be possible.
