magnus sandberg's curator insight, October 1, 2014 4:23 AM

I don't know how I feel about Classcraft. Is it a way to make school more exciting or is it a way to make games more boring. Or both? Or neither? I dont know, but it certainly is interesting!

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, September 11, 2014 10:21 PM

This great article shows how we can use Tumblr in our classrooms. I love the suggestion of a quick and easy website or hosting an online debate. They also point out that we need to protect kids online, but they need experience to learn how to do this - Tumblr could be a good way to do this :0)


Do you use Tumblr?

I have an account but don't check it much...maybe I should be?

Any tips or advice for me?

NancyEvans@ATS-LU's curator insight, September 12, 2014 10:01 AM

Tumblr is an easy to use blogging format which emphasizes visuals.

40 Ways to Screw Up a PowerPoint Slide

40 Ways to Screw Up a PowerPoint Slide | Iben Floee | Scoop.it
Bad PowerPoint design may be just as detrimental to your presentation as smelling like a horse. When you have poorly designed slides, a few things happen: your professionalism is questioned (because you essentially tell the people looking at your PowerPoint that you don't know how to create professional work); your audience members get distracted as they toggle between looking at your bad design and listen to what you're actually saying (and, in the end, they don't really ingest either); and your audience just gets bored or annoyed--which is about the worst possible outcome when presenting. Obviously, there are a number of…

What’s Up with QR Codes: Best Tools & Some Clever Ideas - Learning in Hand | Iben Floee | Scoop.it
QR (Quick Response) codes can make classrooms more efficient and interactive. Instead of typing in a web address, a student can open an app and point his or her device’s camera at the code and walk away with a website, audio, or video open in his or her web browser. QR codes store information in an image made up of tiny squares, and anyone can create them.

Ready to Learn? The Key Is Listening With Intention

Ready to Learn? The Key Is Listening With Intention | Iben Floee | Scoop.it

Research on how we learn a second language demonstrates that effective listening involves more than simply hearing the words that float past our ears. Rather, it’s an active process of interpreting information and making meaning. Studies of skilled language learners have identified specific listening strategies that lead to superior comprehension. What’s more, research has shown that learners who deliberately adopt these strategies become better listeners.

We derive the most benefit from observation when we have in mind the conscious intention to carry out the action ourselves. In a 2006 study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, psychologist Scott Frey of the University of Oregon scanned the brains of participants as they watched videos of someone putting together and taking apart a toy made of several parts. One group of subjects simply watched the demonstration; another group was aware that they would be asked to reproduce the actions they viewed on the video.
