Hope just this once won't hurt... This app can only be used on iProducts and won't do on any others -that's mainly why I usually avoid branding such resources. Some of these are real gems though and my soft spot for Shakespeare has got me to share this one with you ;o)

Valider l'info | Education aux media - Semaine de la presse 2013

Comment valider l'information à l'heure des réseaux et d'Internet ? Support de cours pour lycéens dans le cadre de la semaine de la presse 2013
Monica MIRZA's insight:

A l'ère du numérique et du virtuel, une éducation aux media est indispensable, et la validation de l'information en est part essentielle.

L'on peut attirer l'attention des élèves/étudiants tout particulièrement sur la diapo n° 9 : "RETWITTER, C'EST RECOMMANDER [...]" : véhiculer  une'information c'est en quelque sorte la déclarer valide en son nom propre et engager sa "CREDIBILITE". La présentation illustre clairement les dommages collatéraux d'une information erronée, mais transmise sans validation : le 'bon' vieux rouage de la rumeur -sans fondement...

Et ce, quelle que soit le medium de l'information (Fbook, Pinterest, Scoop.it...)  -à souligner aux élèves/étudiants.

Bref, un diaporama bien construit et efficace sur le fond, mais aussi sur la forme  :-)

Facebook, YouTube and even texting will be the salvation of many of the world's endangered languages, scientists believe.

----------

K. David Harrison (associate professor of linguistics at Swarthmore College and a National Geographic Fellow) explains that languages are the human knowledge base : everything human beings know is encoded in languages and cultures. Harrison also tells about his dictionary project : the starting point is...  any language of the world ! These online dictionaries started about a decade ago.

Creating Concept Maps

Creating Concept Maps | EDTECH ~ ICT | Thinking, Tips & Tools - the Internet Tracks & Trails  -Besides... QUESTIONING them all ! | Scoop.it

"A concept map is a picture of our understanding of something. It is a diagram illustrating how sets of concepts are related. Concept maps are made up of webs of terms (nodes) related by verbs (links) to other terms (nodes). The purpose of a concept map is to represent (on a single visual plane) a person’s mental model of a concept.

Concept maps provide a useful contrast with essays. With a concept map, a viewer can see both the forest and individual trees. The big picture is clear because all the ideas are presented on one surface. At the same time, it’s easy to see details and how they relate."

Internet fait place nette dans la pédagogie

Internet fait place nette dans la pédagogie | EDTECH ~ ICT | Thinking, Tips & Tools - the Internet Tracks & Trails  -Besides... QUESTIONING them all ! | Scoop.it

" [...] Aussi, loin d'agir comme un narcotique qui paralyse la réflexion estudiantine, internet est un stimulant qui lui ouvre un champ de possibles mobilisant d'abord sa réflexion, puis la sélection des informations les plus pertinentes pour la production de son "devoir".

L'idée qu'il faille apprendre à l'élève à réfléchir avant de se servir d'internet va non seulement à l'encontre de ce que nous constatons, mais elle suppose naïvement que la pensée est indépendante de son médium. A ce compte, autant reprocher à Socrate d'avoir pensé dans un monde essentiellement oral ou à Descartes d'avoir inventé une méthode scientifique dans un monde livresque !

Les enseignants ont toujours traqué les tricheurs, avec plus ou moins d'appétence. Le problème pédagogique est désormais d'une autre nature. La traque sur internet n'a pas plus de chance d'améliorer les connaissances que le bonnet d'âne n'en avait autrefois de convertir l'ivraie en bon grain. Les enseignants ne doivent pas s'inquiéter de voir leur savoir concurrencé par l'apparition d'un nouveau medium : ils doivent l'apprivoiser avec la complicité des élèves s'ils veulent penser avec les nouveaux moyens du bord. Ce n'est pas le numérique qui doit s'adapter aux exercices rhétoriques de l'école, du lycée et de l'université, mais les institutions qui doivent inventer de nouveaux exercices 3.0. Enseignants, encore un effort ! [...]" | Emmanuel Jaffelin, professeur de philosophie en Ile-de-France
