To help prevent this, the 19th UN Climate Conference takes place this month to discuss how to curb carbon emissions after 2020, including key steps towards a new globally binding agreement by 2015. Check out the infographic on climate change for more information.

Connection through emotions in an online environment takes some extra effort on everyone's part. For me, personal teaching stories help convey humor, empathy, along with the curriculum content.  


Having a lounge where folks can swap pictures of kids and pets might appeal to our brains limbic centers as well!

Developing trust and reciprocal awareness among virtual student teams is essential in effective group formation and performance - particularly in short-duration, high-stakes projects.

The 6 Best Online Bibliography Tools

The 6 Best Online Bibliography Tools | iEduc | Scoop.it
If helping your students write papers is a part of your school day, you probably already know that there are enough issues to focus on without having to spend a lot of time teaching your students how to build a bibliography and correctly cite their sources. Your time is likely better spent helping create a focused, concise piece of work that uses excellent grammar and sentence structure.

Technology Integration Research Review from Edutopia

Technology Integration Research Review from Edutopia | iEduc | Scoop.it

"Technology integration can be one of the most challenging topics to find quality research on. The term itself is a broad umbrella for numerous practices that may have little in common with each other. In addition, technology tools change rapidly, and outcomes can vary depending on implementation."

School Library. Media Literacy and Learning Commons in the Digital Age: Knowledge Model

School Library. Media Literacy and Learning Commons in the Digital Age: Knowledge Model | iEduc | Scoop.it

"School libraries today feel increasing pressure to reinvent themselves in the face of increasing financial pressures, new media technologies, and a progressively media-savvy population. Their transformation from information reserve to knowledge center has been fast underway. This paper builds on that evolution to develop an argument for media literacy education as the pedagogical foundation for the learning commons model for school libraries. This would position the school library as a dynamic media literacy learning hub, anchoring entire schools around knowledge, expression, collaboration, and creation in both virtual and physical spaces. The paper will highlight the case of Chelmsford High School Learning Commons in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, as a vibrant central space in a school for just this type of integrated learning."
